Travelled as a couple. The hotel looked too good to be true on its website so we thought we would give it a try. Travelled from Suva to RakiRaki. The signs for the hotel were very poor and we missed the first turn once, had to turn back around and then made our way in. The road leading to the... More

Bula Vinaka, Thank you for your review of Volivoli Beach Resort, Your feedback is very much appreciated, without it we can not learn as we go. Unfortunately it seems that you took the wrong turn coming from Suva, The sign at the main road is very new and large at 2.4mx2.4m. Whilst I agree the dirt road from the main... More

We are scuba divers but the property is appropriate for everyone. They have an on site dive shop, beautiful rooms, very clean and well maintained, and an excellent restaurant with good service and food. The staff quickly knows your name. Apparently they have converted themselves into a high end property and are definitely succeeding. The view of the South Pacific... More

Spent 4 days in Fiji during first week of March and 2 full days fishing. The weather was phenomenal (though hot out on the water), the staff were super friendly, and the fishing was fantastic. Nick knows the local water and knows how to fish your target fish, which for us was yellowfin and GT. We trolled out to fishing... More

This was my first time visiting Volivoli Beach Resort. I had seen pictures of the resort before but found it hard to believe the resort could be that nice.

The resort is beautiful and the staff is the best. I stayed there for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. Everyone who worked there was very friendly and within an hour of our arrival they all knew the name of everybody in our 12 person group. I still don't know how they did it. The staff was very...

Volivoli resort presented itself well. The gardens were immaculate, the views were fantastic, however there were some things which could be changed. Firstly, upon arriving we asked Nick about organising a fishing charter as we had read good things before our trip. The next day Nick spoke to us and said he'd get back to us ( a common theme...

we have visited Volivoli twice now (first trip August 12, second trip Aug 13) The diving is just as good as we remember it. The resort is a 2.5 hour drive from the airport. The resort can organise a transfer for you. The road near the resort is really rocky, so if you hire a car, get a 4WD. We... More
