Harmonize your Mind, Body and Soul with Susan Deakin August 29 – September 4, 2023

per person

The retreat

Susan’s philosophy is based on her commitment to her belief that “Love is the Secret Ingredient”. She bases her teaching on sharing her deep feeling of contentment, and will give you the tools to develop this within yourself.

She will help you to learn the blessings of acceptance, taking the world as it is with joy and compassion. She will help you listen to your intuition, to embrace what you feel affinity with and to avoid what you find makes you instinctively uncomfortable. You can be wiser than you think – so cultivate it.

Spending time in the beautiful location and serenity of Suvasuva Bay relaxing and indulging in self care you will meet yourself on a whole new level and return home with a new mindset to achieve the goals of your life.

Susan’s gift is identifying your individual strengths and helping you find your purpose.
The key to happiness in this life is knowing what you’re on this planet for.

Invest in yourself.  It will be worth every cent.

Yoga on the deck at Daku Resort, Savusavu.



We stayed at Daku for a week as part of a yoga retreat – it was glorious. Most relaxing, chilled-out holiday I have ever had, with hosts and staff that welcomed us as family. Thank-you George, T, Maraya, Delia, Peggy, JJ and everyone else for looking after us so well. I am still in awe of the amazing tropical sunsets viewed from the front verandah of our bure. Just enough activities to keep us loving it, but not “over-holidayed” – snorkelling, kayaking, village visits, healing stream, waterfall plunge, visit to the coco plantation and boutique chocolate-making house, walks, informative presentations on the local pearl-growing industry and village craft-making, and of course, our yoga sessions in the magnificent shala high on the moutainside.

Sue K: Trip Advisor

I have been to Daku Resort many times including 3 Yoga retreats,(about to attend my 4th) 4 family holidays and 2 times as a single traveller – all fabulous. Each time has been quite a different experience – and that is what Daku offers, a unique experience – a little off the “normal” track from the tourist grind. I have loved the consistent warm welcoming service and openness of heart from the staff, and I also loved the variety of clients that Daku attracts. There has been the opportunity to met someone or no one at all. The variety of themes within the Paradise course caters to most people and the facilities are everything you need in a tropical paradise. This is a place I call a second home. Great credit goes to the owners JJ and Delia for creating a special.

Cath05: Trip Advisor

I have recently returned from a yoga retreat at Daku Resort in Savusavu. It is truly an unspoilt part of the world yet only a few hours from Home. The view from the Shala ( where we practised yoga every day) was beyond words. Looking out to the magnificence of mountains over the lagoon at sunset was simply breathtaking! The staff are friendly and pure of heart . This is what makes Daku unique. It is not a ‘glamorous’ resort and yet this is what makes it so special! Accomodation varies from a basic Buru to the more updated versions ( some with their own plunge pool) .I stayed in the basic style and enjoyed its simplicity . Every afternoon I loved sitting out on my little balcony and watching the world drift past by .. little boats,a paddle boarder , locals walking to or from work.
