After going through the customs of Fiji, it is better to buy local mobile SIM card(Vodafone and Digicel are two main telecommunication carriers in Fiji, they do offer package service including fixed amount of cellular data and amount of local and international calling times) and Bus card at the airport.

Every guests coming to visit Malakati village, the village tradition suggested that each group of guests need to bring at least 500g Kava, a type of local raw material of local coffee to village chief when they check-in. It is better to buy Kava from local market of mainland of Fiji, or it would be very expensive on island.

When first day arriving in Nadi, we suggest you stay in Nadi for the first night due to the reason that every day there is only one ferry which departs early morning from Nadi's Denareu bay. So if you flight land in Nadi airport later in morning, you will miss the ferry. But if you still want to come, airplane is another good choice, for more information, you can check my other posts related to transportation to Malakati Homestay. The Fiji Gateway hotel and its neighbor hotel called Tokatoka resort are two good options with reasonable price and clean rooms and its amenities.
