Anticipate a Kava Ceremony and village visit, a welcome to Fiji with a kava ceremony. Most resorts hold less formal kava ceremonies for guests. Etiquette demands bringing gifted kava to the village as respect for the community. Travelling with a tour, this will be prearranged and presentation of kava is to the chief and mataqali (village elders! Kava Etiquette: SAY "Bula" then clap your hands once before accepting your drink. After drinking the bowl (bilo) of Kava (one gulp only-no sipping allowed) hand the bowl back to the person who presented it to you and clap with cupped hand three times again. (clapping sound should be hollow, not sharp.) Terms of Endearment: "low tide" - a small bowl of Kava; "high tide" - filled bowl of Kava. It is acceptable to decline Kava -put your hand up and shake your head when it is presented to you. It is no insult to your host/no explanation needed.
