Kuita Trust - We offer our guests the opportunity to give a little to those less fortunate in Fiji. By donating F$5 per room per stay. Kuita is Fijian for octopus, which symbolises far and reaching.

Our Sustainable Musket

Turn off lights, fans & air-conditioning when not in use.
Should you wish to re-use towels? Place on the rail provided, towels left on the floor will be replaced.
Bed linen will be replaced on alternate days. Alternatively, place the “Bilo” (half coconut shell) on the unmade bed and it will be changed.
Two bottles of complimentary water are supplied daily. We also store rainwater, which you are welcome to access. Please Do NOT drink the tap water.
Our state-of-the-art waste management system is very sensitive. Do NOT flush non-biodegradable items.
We are reducing single use plastics throughout the resort. What plastic bags used are biodegradable. We recycle plastics, compost cardboards and pulverise glass back to sand, garden waste composted and used at our farm and resort gardens.
Ask about our mangrove, coral and giant clam rejuvenation program. Done in conjunction with Fiji’s forestries and Marine depts. Doing our bit for today and future generations.
