Part daytime club, part Italian wood-fired pizzeria, the two-story platform floats in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean, just off the coast of the Viti Levu, Fiji’s main island. Set on two levels, it features a top-shelf bar stocked with local and international favorites, as well as a rotating roster of international DJs adding energetic vibes to the scene.
