On a whim we made a 10 day trip to Fiji. W booked a 2 day stay at Palmlea and ended up staying for 4 days! It was terrific! Joe and Julie are fantastic hosts at this amazing small resort on the North shore of Vanua Levu Island. Wonderful accommodations - very comfortable - with special touches to make you... More

Absolutely stunning and peaceful place to stay with amazing food. Myself and a friend had the opportunity to stay at Palm Lea Farms back in June this year. The booking process was very easy and we were picked up at Labasa airport as arranged through the resort. The resort is set in lush rain forest with amazing sea views and... More

Recently my husband and I returned from a holiday in Fiji. Palmlea Farm was recommended so I booked. From the moment we stepped through the door and approached with the beautiful banana leaf lei, to the flower decorated coconut drink, the special touches continued throughout our stay. Our hosts Jo and Julie are beautiful people with a wealth of knowledge.... More

Thanks again dear Julie and Joe, coming to see your wonderful hideaway was a blessing and you were great hosts. I loved all of it. The pool is glorious, the bures are so beautiful, the nights so starry and peaceful, the food delicious! Freshly caught fish, days out on the boat snorkelling, seeing many species of fish.. (sadly, the crown... More

One would not expect to find something like this in the middle of nowhere in Fiji... To be specific, here are some facts: * Comfort and forethought of a true resort. Many things are built according to the original Fiji techniques: feels charming. * Cozy and very clean bures. Freshly smelling towels and bed linings. There were fresh flowers continuously... More

It was my girlfriend and I's first big trip together and we decided to spend it in Fiji, off the beaten path at Joe and Julie's resort, and it was the best decision we could have made. We were treated with the utmost care during out stay. By both owners and animals alike. They have an adorable dog named Tilly... More

The management were informed of my arrival flight but there was no one to greet me at the airport. The airport became deserted but for a lone taxi. This I managed to get the driver to take me to the lodge. A bad start to a week here. This is nothing but a hobby farm with goats covered with flies.... More

Helpless romantic, nature lovers, you will find your match in Julie's and Joe Eco hideaway. They were closed for refurbishment and big clean up after a cyclone but accepted to take us in anyway even though they warned us they might be some nuisance or inconvenience. Julie told us later that my French accent on the phone sealed the deal..... More
