Ratu Kini's is in essence a backpackers and those who choose to stay should expect very basic accommodation irrespective of your room choice. Most rooms do not have hot water showers. Having said that we had the most wonderful time! The staff were the friendliest we encountered in all of Fiji. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced with... More

We recently visited this backpackers (restaurant) if you could call it that, and were quite impressed with the friendly and accommodating service of the owner as well as a good quality meal. It is recommended as an alternative to the mainstream restaurant on mana island and is only a short walk up the beach (as island management have shut the... More

The room was clean and the food was fine. Nothing special but decent food with a reasonable size. The staff are good fun and always up for... More

We did the 5 day 10 dive package and loved it. They picked us up from our hotel in Nadi and dropped us there again. We had a double room right on the beach, all the meals were included in the price and we enjoyed them all. The dive instructors were great and most of the time it was just... More

Compared to the resort a beer or wine here is much cheaper than at the resort 1/2 the price. The food is ok and a little cheaper than the resort but I reckon it should be cheaper. Not much choice on a small island so that explains the prices. Nice view from the restaurant.

Had 6 nights there. Accomodation ok, slept in a dorm. The staff was bad, The fat older lady behind The bar couldn't smile and was real pain to be around. No water to fill up and expensive to Buy. Some glass on the beach, be careful. Positive was that it was cheap, honeymoon beach is Worth a visit.

I was tempted by the attractive package prices shown on their website. The owner of the resort booked me a practically impossible package which ended up in a disaster. While checking in the receptionist demanded 280$ more than what was agreed up on and it took me atleast 1 hour and painful time to check in. The landlord forced the... More
