We received an email through our website about travelling to Fiji and dealing with a food allergy.
Do you have any suggestions?
"I have booked a holiday in fiji. I assumed a 'five star' resort with many resteraunts would be able to accomodate food allergies. They tell me they cannot accomodate such dietry requirements (egg, dairy and nut free except coconut)and have not yet let me know if they can provide a kitchen for me...
They also advise me that the nearest hospital is three hours away and that helicopters do not operate after sunset.
If anyone has personal experiance with Fiji I would be glad to hear from them. As far as I am concerned we are going (complete with emergency drugs and staple foods). Please can you advise me on five star resourts and their usual abilities?? Where to go from here??
Appreciate your response. Holiday is in July/August 2010".
If you have any suggestions (constructive), please post away.
