Sabeto Hot Springs

Nadi, Suva & Viti Levu

Never mind the pricey resort spas: slopping around this natural mud pit and the geothermal hot pools will have you feeling like a million bucks, even if it's just from all the therapeutic giggling you'll be doing. If all the mud-glooping and pool-dipping proves too much of an exertion, local villagers offer soothing massages for about $30.
