It was a trip for a family of four (2A&2C). The rooms were big and clean and tidy. Hotel layout was good and is to a good standard. Staff gave excellent service. Went line fishing with the kids, they had a ball. Didn't catch any fish so we got extra time to try our luck again. Beautiful beach, excellent views,... More

We stayed here in the first week of August, and we were thrilled by how lovely our bungalow was! Beautiful views of the sea, sounds of the ocean and sun streaming onto our deck made this a great spot to just relax and get accustomed to 'Island Time'. This is a small resort, so you end up chatting with most... More

Over all the resort was wonderful. The rooms were beautiful and very clean. We had a room with beautiful views. Only problem we had was that we had to pay for wifi and it was poor connection in the rooms. Food and drinks were good. Grounds and pool were wonderful as well. Staff was very nice. Absolutely love sasha!

Beach resort to relax, snorkel, scuba and fish. Location allows views of sunrise and sunset. All rooms have oceanview. Resort staff were warm, friendly and helpful. Owners on premise made it personable.

As divers we came here after hearing good reports about the local diving. It certainly lived up to expectations. This area is the most fishy area I have dived in Fiji. The room was lovely with a view of the sea and mountain range in the background. Great value dining, meals were served in good time, unlike everywhere else I... More

Bula Vinaka, Thank you for your kind review of Volivoli Beach Resort and Ra Divers. Our diving is very "Fishy" up here in the Bligh Waters and is very much accessible with our 2 custom built hi speed dive vessels. I hope you can return soon to experience more of the diving we can offer. Kind regards Nick Darling More

Thanks to the team at VoliVoli, Mum and i went for a weekend get away and couldn't have been more delighted. Resort is predominantly geared to dive groups and off resort snorkeling isn't terrific. I expressed keen interest in snorkel outing for next day and staff weren't proactive in finding more participants - had to find someone myself to share... More

A remote location on Viti Levu with great views and a really good vibe. We enjoyed a relaxing 3 nights. Stayed in a Vale Balavu room with a view to die for. Food was excellent and the staff were all fabulous. Definitely on our list to go back to.

Volivoli is in a lovely location with gorgeous scenery in every direction and fabulous sunsets. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and located fairly high up which gives lovely views, although means a bit of walking.

Nice resort in a very pristine place. Good restaurant, beautiful beach, nice rooms (all ocean view), spa, great diving center (RA), great service. Internet not good, but it's not good all over the country.
