We felt immediately at home at Nakia resort and were sorry to have to say goodbye to Robin and the attentive kitchen staff. Nakia has beautiful gardens that are perfect for relaxing in. The organic produce was great too! Diving was fantastic and Julie did an excellent job of ensuring we felt comfortable in the Somosomo Strait currents. Soft corals... More

I really wish that Tripadvisor would allow half ratings....This would probably end up as a 4.5 overall: Service - 5+ Diving - 5+ Other Activities - 4.5 Room - 4 (5 for Taveuni) First and foremost, the service and friendliness was OUTSTANDING!! Everyone on the staff, from the owners, to the kitchen staff and the gardeners...their sole focus was making... More

Trip of a lifetime. Diving unequaled. Taveuni Ocean Sports dive operation excellent. Comfortable accommodations, attentive staff, good food. Desserts out of this world. Although no bar, there is beer and wine, both of which were quite good. Caution: Duty free liquor store called Prouds in Taveuni airport a rip off. Sold two over priced bottles of bad wine and they... More

Lovely, comfortable bure with thoughtful touches throughout. Unbelievable food, veggies and fruit fresh from the garden and many meats locally sourced. Hospitable hosts that made everything easy, and made you feel like family. Fantastic warm pool. And world-class diving with Taveuni Ocean Sports (I snorkeled), a first-class operation a short walk away. Loved hiking the Bouma falls too. Would definitely... More

My husband and I and two friends stayed at Nakia for two weeks Jan/Feb 2015. We loved it! We felt completely spoiled by the incredibly beautiful surroundings, view and our accommodations. But the absolute best part was the people. Robin and Jim Kelly, owners of the resort, were always available if we needed them. When we arrived, they were simply... More

My boyfriend and I took a long trip to New Zealand and booked our flights through Fiji so we could do a few days of R&R after a very active adventure in NZ. Our interactions with Nakia were top notch from start to finish. Our emails were answered promptly, and they were kind enough to waive the minimum stay for... More
