We chose to stay in a traditional bure, my partner had never been to fiji (I've previously stayed at tokiriki island). This has been our favourite holiday so far. It's close to the mainland so it's easy to do day trips, we met some people on the island and they drove us around the 'real' fiji and saw the mainland... More

We were going to Fiji after spending 2 weeks in New Zealand's North Island. (By the way NZ is beautiful and friendly, unlike this place). Well what can we say about the Bekana Island resort, well it's probably the worst place I've ever stayed in, albeit for 2 nights. (Please take into account I spent 5 years in a NATO... More

Bekana island....sweet people but now more staff than guests. The views are spectacular from the bure 'on' the beach. The staff are pleasant and fairly attentive. It is not up to the cleanliness par of many travelers, the meals were poor to inedible..., but the kava flowed freely and we were serenaded each evening by the young men living there.... More

I read some good reviews about this hotel and decided to book, the manager offered us an apparently good deal which gave us a free upgrade if we booked promptly and directly with the hotel. They told us they were unable to accept credit cards and could only accept a bank transfer. We sent a bank transfer of FJ$500 in... More

We had slightly higher expectations of Fiji, though we understood it is poor, it is a popular tourist destination, and if nothing else, try to keep the place clean. Instead, we didn't see the Fiji of Pristine azure water, and beautiful beaches, but rather a dirty run-down sort of place where garbage is pile up on the beaches, and little... More

Unlike In-susan-ity (NZ) and vjkanicki I love Bekana, the island, the food, the people, Bow the Dog and the rooms. I am about to return for my 7th trip in 3 years and this time there are 7 of us going - 5 of us are repeat travellers. I have travelled to other islands and stayed on some, none can... More

On arrival at the airport our (very expensive) transfer was there to meet us. So far so good. He dropped us off at the boat and waited for us to tip him. The boat itself, not particularly seaworthy, but got us there in one piece. The clerk on the desk requested that we pay immediately, even before seeing the room.... More

After reading other reviews and looking at the "resort" website, my partner and I felt very excited about arriving at Bekana Island for our first romantic holiday together - we were both totally and overwhelmingly disappointed! On arrival, after crossing from the less than aesthetic Lautoka fishery wharf in a boat that was anything but sea worthy, we found our... More
