Booked this trip last minute after a volcano cancelled our planned trip to Bali. We had a very relaxing trip and enjoyed our stay here. PROS: Loved no TV/internet/phones as it forced relaxation upon us! The ocean front bures were literally steps from the water and we could listen to waves crash at night. The resort did not feel crowded... More

We stayed a week at Tambua Sands and the resort, people and snorkeling were awesome. Special thanks to Navi and Tui who were great with the kids (and adults). Rooms, especially bathroom could do with an upgrade but good value for money. Restaurant was good and great for kids, however we also found Shiva's Wine and Dine in the Market... More

We stayed in Bure 1 which is a Beachfront Bure, the Bure was well appointed and clean. Tambua Sands is a small resort with a lot to offer, you can either get right into the local culture or sit by the pool and grab a massage, My wife and I were there from 13.07.2015 until 23.07.2015 we got straight into...

Tambua Sands provided me with the best week of my life. The staff at this resort are amazing and I highly recommend the resort to everyone! We were generously upgraded to Ocean View bures instead of Garden View bures :) The hospitality is fabulous and enjoyable; the activities really entertaining. It has beautiful bures which are cleaned daily and presented... More

We arrived 28/5/2015 and left on 2/6/2015 It was just a place to spend time in and eat during our other activities in Fiji. It fulfilled those criteria but it lacked soul. The food was excellent one night and terrible the next. The bridge was washed away during the big storm a few days ago and no attempt was being... More

Absolutely amazing huts along the beachfront - literally as you open the door you have the sea a few steps away. Has free kayaks and snorkeling to offer as well as paid excursions using a glass floor boat and trip to the mangroves - very reasonably prices. The only thing is that you are subject to the tide as you... More

Great staff. Great pool Nice grounds The snorkelling is not great as you can't get into deep water due to a reef break. The rooms were dated and bathrooms a little grubby. The Highway runs right past your room and tends to be very noisy early in the mornings. It is a long way to any activity and you had... More
