We stayed six nights in Orchid Bure and enjoyed every moment. Everything about Rainbow Reef Resort is wonderful, the island welcome and foot massage on arrival, the bure, the food, the snorkeling...

What a wonderful getaway. Everything about the Rainbow Reef Resort was EXCELLENT. The beauty of the resort and people top the list for me. I felt so welcome and never pressured or rushed. The bures were comfortable and fare apart giving me the privacy and comfort I was looking for. I really loved the outdoor shower. The snorkeling was way... More

We spent three nights here as part of a week long trip to Fiji. The flight from the main island to the small island followed by a short boat ride was quite interesting. If you are not used to small planes, it's quite an experience. We were greeted by the entire staff on the island including the property manager. They... More

One of the most divine spots I've ever had the pleasure of staying at. First class service, staff, location and diving! The four bures are perfect for two. Far enough away from the other guests, you never feel like you are infringing on them. The outdoor shower was wanenuva (awesome!). Very relaxing, no stress, with a sandy beach at your... More

Having read the reviews we decided to make this our Fiji holiday for 2013. Last year we stayed at Nukubati Resort so we have something to compare with. The resort location is beautiful and similar to Nukubati. The rooms are well appointed and all ocean front similar to Nukubai. The staff were friendly and helpful similar to Nukubati. I can... More

Relaxed. From the moment your feet touch the white sand beach when arriving, till when you board the boat to leave everything about Rainbow Reef is relaxing. When you arrive you are given a wonderful coconut foot massage which sets the tone for the holiday. The resort is well laid out with spacious well kept gardens and lawn areas leading... More

This is one of the most beautiful and accommodating resorts you will find in Fiji. It is close to Tavuni but accessible only by boat which creates a private paradise. In the off season it rains a lot, but the water and air are warm and the diving and snorkeling are fabulous at any time. This is one of the... More

We stayed at the RRR in late September / early October and although it has taken us a while to write this review, that is no reflection on our stay at all; this was probably the best holiday we have ever had. There has been a lot already written about the resort in the reviews on this site so I’ll... More

Arriving at RRR following 4 days of volunteering at The Mission at Natuvu Creek, my husband and I were greeted with joyous song, coconut drinks and leg/foot massages. We were the only guests at the time and felt very pampered and welcomed by the entire staff. RRR is a small, secluded, lush, beautiful, resort where you stay in your own... More
