Gaiatree Sanctuary

Join owners Matthew and Natasha for a day at Gaiatree Organic Sanctuary, an organic spice plantation, day club & nectar lab that takes great pleasure in serving high quality farm-to-table superfood-infused meals.  Taste the adventure as you enjoy fresh tropical delicacies while soaking up the stunning ocean views & exploring the hilltops of Fiji’s Garden Island. Relax in cool eco domes, tour the gardens, view a demonstration and learn about permaculture.
