Two years ago a friend and I spent a week at Namena. Getting there is a challenge, but totally worth the effort. we happened to be the only guests there that week so it was our private paradise. The Figian hosts, Nigel and Aggie could not have been more gracious, the food was fresh (much of it grown right there)... More

Our family went back to Namena Island again in December and had another excellent vacation. The staff at the resort are truly amazing people, and they immediately make you feel so "at home" in Fiji. The food was great (exactly as I remembered it to be!) and the weather was pretty good - although a little bit more windy than... More

Snorkel and dive day trip well worth it. Great reef, yummy lunch, exceptional staff and the most perfect beach in Fiji. The marine park provided excellent coral and sea life - including giant clams, octopus and manta rays.

We stayed for eight days in November. Weather was glorious and so are the island, the reefs, and the resort. The staff is friendly and helpful. Thank you again, Aggie and Eleanor!! The reefs are teeming with fish and corals--great snorkeling right off the beach or the dock, or take the dive boat to the barrier reef for great snorkeling... More

We loved Namena 7 years ago when Tom & Joan were still there - we loved them too but it certainly wouldn't have been for everyone The new Namena is going to be great - why - because actually they are changing little of what makes Namena great. As of November 2014 only one of the 6 Bures ( think... More

Stayed in October. The main attraction is the diving, which is world class. Beautiful reefs, critters, lots of sharks. All the liveaboards (dancer, siren, aggressor) were there while we stayed - which says it all. Probably the best diving in Fiji. The dive crew (DM Sio, Captain Vitale and their team) were excellent: safety conscious, well organised, fun to dive... More

The Namena Island Resort is undergoing some changes. It is a wonderful place, a good hour or more from the island of Savusavu, in the middle of a marine reserve. The new owners are upgrading the bures and have provided some water toys. The real joy is the marine life which is so rich. The food is wonderful, the staff... More

We are not divers. We went to Namena Island with friends who were looking forward to diving its legendary reef. We wondered if we would have a good time. In June of 2014, we had the most wonderful holiday at Namena Island Resort. You could not ask for a more stunningly beautiful place. Welcome to Namena is the 116 steps... More

I agree with everything Matt066 said in his review. If you love the feeling of camping and being outdoors away from electronics and other distractions then this place is perfect for you. The diving is so good even if you don't like camping, just go here because it is unbelievably beautiful! I took my wife here for our honeymoon and... More

Sara and I were here in September 2007. This time I travelled to Namena alone, arriving Aug. 30, departing Sept. 5. There is new ownership now but the place seemed very much as it did 7 years ago, the glaring absence of Tom and Joan Moody aside. I love this place today as I loved it then and could kick... More

Linda S, Owner at Namena Island Resort, responded to this review

Thank you for writing your review on Trip Advisor regarding your recent stay at Namena Island Resort. Reading through our guests responses, I note "fear" of the new owners making changes to the resort and want to help ease those fears by advising what our changes include. We bought the island for fear that someone else would purchase it and... More
