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....

My wife and I spent two nights at this very pleasant lodge. We had started our vacation in Nadi, but quickly decided to cross this island to get our Padi diving certification in a better location and to experience more from Fiji. We made the right choice. A short boat ride took us to this island retreat. The staff were... More

We just did a day trip out (hired a car and drove from Nadi) so that I could get in an afternoon of kite surfing lessons. It was worth every cent, and in fact I was pleasantly surprised with how little they charged me (the time was clearly just 'on the water' not the pre-brifing / pack up and tips... More

I initially inquired about our stay at this resort a month before our arrival, and exchanged communications with Warren, the owner of the resort. The purpose of our stay at this resort was for no other reason than to dive the Blight Waters and the Vatu-I-Ra passage. In his first reply to my inquiry, Warren wrote: "The Bligh Waters and...

I read the comments before i write this post…seems Safari Lodge didn't make any improvement… 1) 50FJD for transfer is too expensive for a 15 minutes boat ride. furthermore they don't take our request into account. We were asked to take the 10am boat transfer cause they tried to reduce their cost and let us joined the transfer with kite... More
