We had a wonderful stay at Tambua Sands. It was in an idyllic location, close enough to Sigatoka, so you could hop on a bus and go to the market for wonderful fruit and veg supplies or have a local meal. The accomodation, Ocean view burrees or Garden view burees were clean and spacious,right on the beach under the coconut... More

The staff were also friendly and helpful. The food was good but the menu was quite... More

This is a lovely clean and tidy small resort, 25 bures in all. So it is not crowded at any time. You are right on the lagoon, which is absolutely fine to snorkel at high/mid tides. You are just around the corner (west) from Namaku village and about 15 - 20 mins walk from Hideaway Resort (east). Buses or minivans... More

We had a wonderful week at TAMBUA SANDS. The single bures on the beach are the best. The garden bures are close to the road. The staff are terrific, the location is great, the bures are clean and comfortable, the food is good. We would return to TAMBUA SANDS in a heartbeat.

We really didn't know what we were getting in to when booking for Fiji, it far surpassed our expectations on what we thought we needed to just what we needed. The burrs are very cute,quaint, clean and quiet. Tambua offers complimentary kayaks to take out and explore the coral reef area where the waves break out about 100 yards. So... More

Fantastic value for your dollar, we really loved it and the staff were fantastic. Continental Breakfast was included and whilst this was good the inclusion of pastries and perhaps some eggs would have made it fantastic. All the staff went that extra mile to make sure you enjoyed yourself and made you feel extremely welcome. The amenities included kayaks and... More

The staff are lovely and just so friendly. The meals were very nice and lots of choices. the bures were a little dated but clean and tidy. There are two tour operators at Tambua sands and both are very helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

This resort is well away from it all so you definitely need to have your transport organised. There's a series of bungalows right on the water's edge. You can swim and use the kayaks for free. And there's also a decent pool if you choose. The restaurant is great and includes wifi.
