Like Steve G says, Turtle Island is not a 6 star resort if measured by traditional accommodation standards. However the service, genuine care and kindness alongside the compulsory "turtle/fiji time" mind and body shift set this resort well above traditional ratings categories. We travelled with our 19 month old child during family week and can honestly say that a proper... More

We planned this trip to Turtle Island to end an active vacation in New Zealand and Tasmania. We were more than pleased with our choice. Everything about Turtle Island was terrific. Our bure was spacious. Our Bure Momma was so helpful as was the entire staff. There were many activities if one chose, such as snorkeling, walking, fishing or just... More

On our first afternoon in Turtle, whilst we were floating on the blue mats in the lagoon, with Bill bringing us a cocktail, my husband looked at me and said "heaven...we have found it". The Fijians are truly beautiful in spirit and Turtle brings this to life where you become part of "Turtle Family". We have returned three times over... More

Just got back from a week in Paradise and I feel compelled to write and let people know what a wonderful experience it was. First things first, if you are looking for a 6 Star hotel with impersonal staff and ruthless efficiency then Turtle is not for you. If you really care if your Bloody Mary is made with fresh... More

What a cool place! The service, the personal touches to everything, the room, the island, the food and the people are all amazing. We were there for one week and we loved it every day. It's like no where else you will go in the world. I say it is different place not in a bad way, but in good... More

After some family health issues over the past few years, my husband and I wanted to both mark a special wedding anniversary and get away from it all. Turtle Island allowed both to happen, and I don't think I find words to express just how special this experience was for us. You will be treated royally, but at the same... More

Went to Turtle Island for my honeymoon and was amazed at how wonderful this trip was. The food is amazing. the service is exemplary and the staff are just wonderful. If you are looking for a place to go and not interact with others, this is not the place. Most dinners and events take place with other guests but you... More

My wife and I just returned from Turtle Island. Overall, this is a jewel of a property where travellers get a taste of Fijian custom while enjoying isolation, privacy and relaxation. The pros are the amazing treatment and hospitality that you are treated to, the ability to be embraced by and educated in Fijian custom, the slow pace of the... More

A FANTASTIC resort! Everything was just great - staff (especially our "bure Mama", Mili), bures, food, drinks, evening activities, picnic locations, SCUBA, snorkel, SUP. All first class!! Adults only except designated family times. We met great people from around the world. We will be going back!

My wife and I spent our much needed vacation here in August of 2013. Having lived in Hawaii for 10 years and visited places like Tahiti, Yap, Chuuk, we had seen and lived paradise, but Turtle Island took it new a new level. I visited Trip advisor today just to read the latest reviews since it had been a year... More
