Before Namale was a resort, it was a thriving coconut plantation. The first trees were planted around 1874 by one of the many European settlers who made their home in Savusavu, a town in the Fijian province of Cakaudrove. In the 1960s, the resort started off as a working coconut plantation, but the harvests stopped in the late 1990s. To this day, straight lines of planted coconut trees still stand tall on Namale's property.
