We stayed here for one night on our trip around the main island. What can I say, some would call this the perfect holiday resort. The Bures (huts) were really nice, the huge bed was great. We slept with the doors open all night and it as great to listen to the rain. The restaurant was good too. Food and... More

I stayed at this resort for a week with my family(2 kids 9 and 5). First off, let me say when I rank resorts I take into account the location and price into consideration when coming up with a final rank. For example, a hotel in downtown Manhattan that’s 5 stars would be rated to a different standard then a... More

We went to two resorts in Fiji. This was the second one so I am contrasting it with the first hotel we stayed at on Taveuni Island. This hotel was much more upscale than the other one although not quite as nice as the pictures on its website. Still the gardening was very beautiful and our 'bure" was lovely. The... More

Resort hopping our way out to our destination. Water is Crystal Clear for diving and swimming. Peaceful and Paradise. A long bumpy ride to this resort. A must place to stay if looking for paradise. We just stopped over for refreshments and checkout this resort for our next vacation trip.

We stayed at Wananavu for 5 nights with a crew of three adults and eight high school students on an extraordinary adventure. Four kids were still finishing their dive certifications and the remainder were more experienced. We stayed in the villa at the top of the hill. This used to be the resort founder's house which shows in the attention... More

Truly a wonderful dive destination with a great relaxing atmosphere. The diving was well organised and the diving itself was spectacular. The resort staff were wonderful and friendly and couldn't do enough to make your stay a comfortable one. A truly relaxed atmosphere.

My stay here was absolutely fantastic! This place truly has it all - delicious food, gorgeous location, variety of fun activities, and the most friendly staff I have ever encountered! The menu is not extensive, but it does change every day and always includes a vegetarian or vegan option. The scenery is perfect as a postcard with plenty of hammocks... More
