Nanuku Auberge Resort First to Partner with Fijian Rugby Coaches to Reveal a World-Class Training Program for its Guests

Nanuku Auberge Resort proudly unveils the Nanuku Raka Rugby Program; an exclusive, immersive three or five-day rugby training program for its guests.

Utilising nearby training facilities, participants of the new program will experience a personal coach to take them through training regimes akin to those of the Fiji 7s, Fiji’s 2016 Olympic Gold Medal winning team in Rio de Janeiro including aerobic exercises, gym sessions, sports massages, beach runs and daily scrimmages against local island teams
for a real-world playing experience.

Nanuku Auberge Resort General Manager, Sascha Hemmann says, “From schoolchildren in villages running around in afternoon pickup games to organised local tournaments, Rugby is a second religion here in Fiji.”

Sascha continues, “At Nanuku we make authentic connections between our guests and our culture, and the introduction of this program focuses on taking visitors off resort grounds and out of their comfort zones to learn, sweat and create a soulful discovery of their own.”

With groups no larger than four, the Nanuku Raka Rugby Program begins each day by taking participants to the Pacific Harbour grounds located a few minutes away from the resort, setting the stage for several training sessions, followed by beach boot camps and intensive hikes through the destinations indigenous jungle terrain. Daily training concludes
with a playful scrimmage against a local village or Nanuku’s own resort rugby squad.

Upon returning to the resort, guests will enjoy a rejuvenating 60-minute spa massage at the intimate Lomana Spa to address any tension or soreness and prepare for the next days training.

Three-Day Nanuku Raka Rugby Program: USD $480 (AUD $648 NZD $709) per person including three-to-four hours of personalised training per day and a 60-minute massage treatment per day. Training takes place along Nanuku’s three-kilometre long private beach.
