Another magnificent week at this resort. Sadly we could not stay longer. Time moves to quickly. A big Vinaka Vakalevu (Thank you very much) to all the wonderful people at Papageno. We will be back next year and hopefully for longer.

I loved breakfast - all the fresh fruit you could eat, fresh baked breads, homemade jams (try the mulberry jam, handpicked... More
