Plan the wedding of your dreams in Fiji!
Daku is the perfect getaway, whether you’re a couple looking for a private piece of paradise to celebrate, or a bride and groom wanting to bring family and friends to celebrate.
We put our hearts into it, because we know we are holding your dreams.
We’re a small resort, and we give you total personal attention. It’s the perfect getaway, both for a couple looking for a little piece of paradise to celebrate their nuptials alone, or for the bride and groom to celebrate with family and friends.
We both wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you have done for us and our wedding party guests over the past week, and the past 6 months for that matter. Our stay at Daku was unreal and we know how instrumental you were in making that happen for us.
From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by your happy staff – who are so friendly, kind and helpful. They treated all of us like family and everything was made so easy – all we had to do was ask. The food was delicious, the entertainment was great and fun and the guest accommodation was always clean and tidy.
In fact there were two occasions where Neil and I cried because the level of service that was given to both of us and our friends and family was truly beyond the call of duty with kindness – when we saw how the girls had decorated the main eating area near the pool and also when we saw what was done for the cocktail party – wow!
