3 Reasons why you should not miss the CocoPalms Cultural Show at the Westin Denarau Fiji – and your baby will love it too!

When I think back at my Fiji trip, one of my favourite memories was on the very last night where we went to the CocoPalms Cultural Show. The show is located within the Westin Denarau hotel grounds and showcases everything that Fiji has to offer – well the most important things to me anyway. This was the second cultural show that I went to and although not the most authentic, it’s definitely the best one to take your family – especially an infant!

Local Lookout Series – Visit Taronga Zoo for the animals and panoramic views of Sydney

Why the Fiji South Sea Island is great for a quick trip from Denarau and our accidental snorkel with a shark

Fiji is one of those island getaways where the list of things to do is endless. There were 300+ islands to choose from and not all of them were quick trips from Denarau. When travelling with an infant, we knew our limitations.

“People think you’re crazy when you want to book a Fiji island tour with an infant”

When we first asked about island tours, most of the tour desk agents were shocked that we would want to take our infant on a boat at all. They insisted that we stay on the island of Denarau and enjoy the the hotel. We spent many hours relaxing by the hotel pool while enjoying the scenery, but we were keen to visit some islands.

The Grounds of Alexandria – where to brunch with friends and a baby

Since having a baby, we’ve found it challenging to find lunch and dinner venues. This weekend, we decided to brunch with friends at The Grounds of Alexandria.

We’ve been wanting to check out The Grounds of Alexandria for awhile since it’s been popping up on my Facebook feed. My friends posted photos of delicious food and gorgeous foliage. Well, after visiting The Grounds of Alexandria, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is this and so much more.

The Grounds of Alexandria has a Cafe where you can brunch with friends (and baby!) in a quirky, fun atmosphere. There are food carts selling home made lemonade, fresh berries and freshly baked mouth-watering pastries that could rival those served in hatted restaurants!
