We loved funky fish and will definitely be back! We stayed in a large 2 bedroom room with a group which was perfect. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. Funky fish is perfect for surfers and non surfers. I am a non surfer and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had heaps of fun.... More

The place had just had a refurb and looked great with what had been done so far. Sadly got woken up each morning with building work / drilling noise etc whilst they finished the final bits but I suppose it's got to be done. Dorm was good and price was good as an online opening special. Showers were hot, free... More

I stayed at Funky Fish with a group of friends last week - we had such an amazing time. We are not surfers or anything like that but there were a lot of people staying there who were involved in watersports such as surfing, wind surfing etc - there was something for everybody. Funky gave us super cheap transfers (around... More

I had a wonderful stay at Funky fish! The whole resort had only just newly reopened after a complete rebuild. The facilities were impeccable, there is a pool, large decking area with sun loungers, bar, restaurant, hammocks, pool table and spa. I stayed in the dorm room for only $29 per night which was extremely reasonable. Very lovely room and... More

We decided to travel to Funky Fish Resort, Fiji, with the inducement of a discount voucher. You can do as little or as much as you wish - plenty of outdoor activities and just a boat ride to nearby resorts - which we did try. The staff are amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was plentiful and very... More

I enjoyed Funky Fish immensely! I was concerned about the lack of air conditioning (being a Texan), but July temperatures were fine. It is a smallish resort, an wonderful asset because of the relationship one has with the superb staff. Each was so kind and warm, concerned with our satisfaction and always smiling. They embraced us and shared themselves and... More

Bula John, Thanks for your review. Indeed Funky Fish is a great alternative for surfers visiting Fiji and wanting to surf the breaks that are literally on our front door step. Cloud 9 is also a great place to visit and that is now located straight out in front of the resort in its new location. The rooms, facilities, staff... More

We loved the Funky Fish! The snorkelling was amazing and the staff incredible. My boys loved the kayaking, paddle boarding and beach volleyball. They also had lots of fun playing pool. We felt like we were part of the family- sharing in music and kava ceremonies. The rooms were simple but tranquil and the hammocks by the sea were ideal.... More

We stayed In a private dorm room for two nights and thought it was great. The food was good and is served as a buffet for the evenings. There is a meal plan option or you can order off the menu but we didn't quite figure out how it worked so just went with the buffet. Breakfast was basic but... More

Bula Ed, Thanks for the first review since we have reopened and thanks for such a great review as well. Indeed we have accommodation options to suit all needs and the menu is proving to be very popular. It has been fairly cool by Fiji standards lately and as a result, the pool is not at its usual temperature, but... More
