We stayed in Safari two nights. we really liked it, we stayed in a private room up at the tree house next to a dorm and a very big kitchen, there was a big deck overlooking the beautiful ocean. The island is very insteresting to explore, you can go up the hills and take amazing pictures. The wind is strong... More

We came to safari lodge specifically to do our open water PADI course and we are delighted we did. We had a great time. Mark and Michelle are the new dive masters there and they are both enthusiastic, friendly and professional. Michelle was our instructor for the course and she was fantastic. Patient, attentive and fun! She made sure each... More

My girlfriend and I were on a diving excursion with Safari Lodge so I cannot speak for the accommodations. We set out on a sunny day, only the two of us with our diving instructor Mark (working along with Michelle in Safari Lodges diving shop) for some quality diving (especially with regards to the high price). We had heard and... More

My partner and I chose Safari Lodge because it offers both scuba diving and wind surfing instruction and is relatively close to Suva, where we were travelling from. We both enjoyed our experience. Safari Lodge is definitely more of a lodge than a resort. There is a communal vibe to the experience and while one's needs are catered to it's... More

We were impressed with the chalets and the bungalows and were upgraded to some great rooms. The staff are all very friendly. We went there for diving and the coral out at Vitu I Ra was great and great canyons and swim throughs around Bligh Passage, also good coral life at the top. Supposed to often see mantas and some...

I was luck enough to be staying here for just over 2 weeks on holiday. Having been to Fiji once before I really enjoyed everything that Fiji has to offer but I had no idea what the diving had installed for me in such a lovely location. Meeting the diving and conservation team Sophie, Mary, Florrie and Helen I decided... More

We arrived for a mixture of diving (me and husband) and Kiting (husband). The minute I started talking to the Dive Manager Dave about diving, I found him to be easy going, friendly and accommodating. I did a PADI certification while I was there and it couldn't have been a better experience. The diving was so good - excellent viz... More

A really nice, quiet and clean place. Big bungalows with kitchen and refrigarator and really a very good price. The stuff is very honest and friendly. I overpayed and did not relize it. A day later they gave me back the overpayed amount ! I was on diffrent places on fiji, but this is the nicest one.

Safari Lodge exceeded our expectations for a super 8 night break for a non-commercial island paradise dream getaway experience. Resort Director Warren Francis was easy to deal with by email & organised airport transfer taxi & boat access to the island, with early commitment securing a comfortable beach side bure for the week after Boxing day through New Years Eve....
