Two weeks ago, we met with our group of friend (all working for the same company) and decided to go on a retreat. We chose Natalei Eco Lodge and am glad that we chose this simple, yet extremely peaceful place, over 5 star accommodation. We had a whale of our time and our minds were completely relaxed. The small number... More

This place is truly beautiful! Right on the beach. The black sand is an interesting change. Not what you would expect in Fiji. It's great! Fiji isn't all white sandy beaches and pina coladas, as a friend of mine says!! Our group of six (three adults and three teenagers) stayed only one night. What a night it was! We first... More

Natalei is truly one of the most beautiful hidden secrets on this planet. I've never been to a place more secluded or beautiful. It's an amazing way to experience authentic Fiji village life. We had three local women cooking the most incredible food for us three times a day. All people in the village were so happy and friendly. This... More

Was an awesome place to go to, to get away from the city life. Ive never felt soooo relaxed in a while loving the view of the sunset and sunrise from the bures with the beautiful black sand. I would definitely go back there when I go back to Fiji. The staff and villagers are sooo helpful and cheerful just... More

Natalei Eco Lodge sits near Nataleira Village (which owns and runs it) on a nice black sand beach. It has spacious grounds, half a dozen five-bed bures, and common ares. It is one of two accommodation options in the area (Takalana retreat is the other) and both boast close access to see the large pod of dolphins at Moon Reef,... More

I was lucky enough to travel here for an extended stay of 12 days as part of my studies this July. Natalei Eco Lodge is situated at the end of a very long dirt road and is only serviced by the public bus twice a day although taxis can be chartered from Korovou on the King's Highway approximately 1 hour...

Having an extended stay at Natalei Eco Lodge as part of a study group, was a wonderful way to experience the 'real' Fiji. The staff are so welcoming and friendly, I now feel like they have become my Fiji family. The Lodge is off the beaten track, but is a wonderful, relaxing place to stay right on beach. I stayed...

We (1 adult, two children 12 and 7) stayed three nights at Natalei. It's a challenge to get there but really worth it. The lodge is owned and run by the village of Nataleira, and also hosts student volunteers working with dolphin conservation. All meals are provided for communal dining, and there's plenty, but families with younger children might like... More

Our trip was to reward my daughter for her excellent FSLC marks. We arrived very late on friday nite and was surprised to see the ladies wait for us to have dinner. The local breakfast of pancakes, pudding and coconut was amazing. Even the BBQ lunch was hefty. We noted that there was a lot of passion put in for... More
