I stayed here for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The atmosphere is great for solo travelers and young couples. This is a very quaint resort, probably only sleeping a maximum of 20 at any given time. I stayed in a private room in the dorm and the accommodations are basic, but sufficient. The best thing about Funky is... More

Stayed here for 1 night (too short a time and perhaps bad planning on our part) as the first stop on our island adventure. We thought it would be easy to link on to the Yasawa flyer - in reality it was an hour, very bumpy small speedboat ride costing 100FJD each one way. We all got completely soaked, as... More

Thank you for your fair review about our product. Yes we agree about your lack of knowledge and would NOT recommend Funky Fish Resort if you are here for just a night's stay. South Sea Cruises the usual sole launch provider in Mamanucas do not have any connection schedules with their Yasawa launches and with the high transfer rates, it's... More

Wonderful weekend away - Laid back, location and stars at night. Really nice mix of happy couples and polite backpackers. Great staff and easy to get water taxi trips to Cloud 9 and other Mololo resorts. Short ferry from Nadi too

Just spent 8 days at Funky Fish for a surfing break. A great place to stay and relax with extremely friendly staff and guests. Not a big resort, but great for backpackers and surfers, alhough there were some families staying there. About a 30-40 minute boat ride to the surf breaks, but depending on the surfers, the boat captain was... More

It was one of the best trip of my life, I came here with my boyfriend and we had so much fun! People were so friendly and lovely. The atmosphere was so nice, and different from the other big resorts: this one was smaller, easy-going, for young people/ couples/ backpackers etc. so no families around and you hang out all...

The Funky Fish is a great spot to go to decompress from city life. There is no roads, no cars and no commercialism. Your options are to play in the water or hike the hills. I stayed there for almost alittle over a week and left fully rejuvenated by the end of my stay. The staff are exceptionally nice. Rooms... More

Lovely spot friendly staff. Free wifi even if it isn't the best reception everywhere. Staff need to encourage guests to socialise more and have beach side activities. Food was good and reasonable priced. Good spot to leave to the other islands. Its a what you make it kind of place.

Funky fish has an excellent website, this is what drew me to go there to surf. All of their information is correct, bar some crucial details. The website states they charge a small fee to travel to the surf breaks, this fee is 80FJD. Which is fine if there are tow of you. However it remains the same regardless of... More
