Located on a great beach, Papageno is a fantastic little resort witth great rooms, very good food and friendly staff. If you are into eco friendly resorts with organic fresh produce this is the place. Visitors are encouraged to wander the extensive fruit and vegetable gardens and you know the meals come from the resorts own endeavours. There are plenty... More

Overall of the 4 resorts I stayed at on Kadavu, this was my favourite, loved the fresh grown food (what a delight to wander through the orchard and vegie garden) the bure's (comfortable beds but thin walls) the happy staff and the beautiful location. Lots of exploring to do on foot or on kayaks.

My group and I had a great time! I would not change a thing. The food,lodging,weather and the staff were beyond my expectations. Sonya is the bomb! She went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. I have the vacation of a lifetime and can not thank everyone enough. I can't wait to go back.

We spent 4 days in Papageno resort earliest this month with two families including 4 kids aged 3 to 13. Papageno resort is in many sense a unique resort in Fiji. Unique as it is one of the very rare organic eco-tourism resorts in the country. Unique as it is the only resort in Kadavu to have 24 hours round... More

I don't often get around to leaving reviews but I really wanted to post about my fabulous stay at Papageno earlier this month as it was one of the most relaxing and peaceful holidays I've had. The resort really is away from it all – remote and peaceful. Walking along the beaches felt like I could be on a deserted... More

Kayaking thru the Kadavu Islands and this is our first resort stay! Everything is grown organically and cooked onsite. Warm and friendly staff and a wonderful bar for cocktails. Hammocks on the beach for reading, snorkeling, diving - loved the serenity of this resort! Hot water can use some work and better pillows wouldn't go astray....

I recently stayed at this resort for 3 days and 2 nights. First impression was that the resort is beautiful in a beautiful location. Our accommodations were very nice and clean. The food was very good! There are two ladies that run the resort, Elizabeth and Lidia (sp?). Lidia was very pleasant and even took my family on a tour... More

We welcomed Mr. Odocolleus with his Mormon student group with open arms late Saturday afternoon on the beach. They all seemed exhausted as they had spent all of their previous nights in the villages on our island of Kadavu. For previous groups similar to this group, the stay in our resort has always been the highlight of their trip. They... More

We travelled with our six year old child and had a fabulous time with the extended family--mother and father in law as well as brother and his wife and their two teenagers. Our child spent a lot of time chasing and watching crabs on the beach, in-between learning to snorkel, kayak and play table tennis. We felt very secure about... More

I stayed in 3 different resorts on Kadavu during a kayaking holiday. I would rate this resort as poorest of the three. The staff were obviously not happy and I believe that was a reflection of the way they were treated. The beach was the best of the 3 resorts, the coral was average but the service was ordinary. For... More

The guest arrived with a large kayak group and their own guides. They stayed only for 2 nights and spent most of their time with their own guides. We find it rather amazing that someone can evaluate the "happiness" of our staff members in such a short time. Groups like this enjoy special rates and deals. For breakfast they all... More

The perfect remote island location--magically beautifully, with rooms tastefully furnished in authentic fijian decor, a completely relaxed ambience, fresh cuisine from the sea and the resort's garden, all made even better by an attentive, thoughtful staff who go the extra mile to make every minute the stuff that unforgettable memories are made of. We couldn't have had a more pleasurable... More
