Every Friday at Likuliku Lagoon Resort, you’ll be presented with a Fijian Lovo experience and South Pacific BBQ.
During the day, local meats, vegetables and seafood are wrapped in banana and coconut leaves and buried in the earth under hot rocks for several hours allowing the meat and vegetables to slow cook, the traditional way.
You’re invited to watch as the team begin prepare the underground oven at around 1pm and heat the stones.
In old traditional custom, the lovo involved cooking humans and the head belonged to the chief who ate the brain. It was believed to impart power. This is no longer practiced and the modern lovo is equivalent to the western BBQ, a ritual in many Fijian homes. Take a look at the photos below.
