Our family of four stayed at Nakia for a week. The accommodations are excellent, and the food and service are top notch. We went scuba diving nearly every day, and I was blown away by the rich diversity of the Rainbow Reef. The resort and dive shop are family owned and operated, and the staff are friendly and very helpful.... More

Lovely few days at Nakia Resort & Dive with my visiting parents, husband and young son. Booked based on a recommendation from friends and can highly recommend it as a very comfortable, relaxed and personal place to stay. Food package is well worth it as Robin and her team happily made the extra effort to tailor our meals around fresh... More

My wife and I went with 3 friends, the first time to the South Pacific for any of us. By sheer serendipity (and a search thru TripAdvisor), we landed at the dive resort owned by Robin and Jim Kelly and their daughter Julie, who runs the dive shop. The natural setting overlooking the Somosomo Strait was spectacular, the view that... More

Friends and I just stayed at Nakia for a week in late May/early June. We shared the family Bure (which did have separate entrances for each room) which had very spacious rooms. I especially enjoyed the outdoor shower in the smaller of the two bedrooms. The service was excellent - Robin is a very gracious host, who drove me down... More

My husband and I and 3 friends stayed at Nakia for 12 days in April. This was one of those trip-of-a-lifetime experiences. Robin and Jim run a beautiful small resort where we enjoyed every minute. Four of us stayed in the family bure (Somosomo) because it has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Loved the outdoor shower for the back bedroom... More

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

My husband and I were on our honeymoon when we stayed at their garden bure. We loved her hibiscus juice that she created. Robin was very pleasant and treated us with respect and warmth. I would highly recommend staying here and plan to in the future. The diving was amazing at rainbow reef and her daughter is great at explaining... 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
