I have to say that overall, we were very happy with out stay at Tambua. There are many positive things about this hotel but also some weak points that have to be pointed. As it comes to positives: beautiful surroundings, beach, garden and everything around is just nothing short of stunning scenery, both during day and at night as well.... More

I wasn't expecting much from Tambua Sands if I'm honest. I had stayed at Naviti two years previously and had heard Tambua was like the poor cousin. On arrival and checking out the room, I went and checked out the beach and all I can say is "WOW". Naviti may have nicer rooms and a bigger pool, but it does... More

This is a reasonable choice for a relatively low cost resort on the Coral Coast. It's worth looking for special deals: I was able to get approx $110 FJD a night including breakfast. Staff are friendly, bungalows are basic but adequate, food is fairly average, and the beach is very good. Main issue for me was the traffic noise which... More

We stayed here recently as we drove around Viti Levu. The staff were so friendly and the tour desk was very helpful (even though we had our own car so were not booking tours). The meals we had there were also very tasty and were accompanied by some local singers as dinner entertainment. I would suggest staying here to get... More

We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing ten night stay at the Tambua Sands and can't wait to return. The rooms are simple but comfortable and clean and contain everything necessary for a peaceful holiday. We were a little concerned that the lack of A.C. may make it difficult to sleep but we needn't have worried, with the louvered... More

Tambua Sands is an amazing resort. We have just returned back to Australia after a month stay here, It is so unique and different from other resorts and in my opinion is the best resort on the Coral Coast - or the whole of Fiji for that matter.

We arrived at Tambua Sands with out any real knowledge of the resort other than from a brochure. The setting of the resort was just magnificent, nicely styled huts with palm trees in front overlooking the beach. The huts were not supplied with television nor a telephone, however that was a plus as the setting was just so peaceful &... More
