Did not have any place to stay for my first night in Fiji when I arrived. They were very helpful in storing luggage and getting me to and from the airport for a short period of time. The staff were also very kind and trustworthy.

I have been a regular visitor and have watched it evolve from a basic back packer operation to what it is now ..... a pleasant mixture of 4 star beachfront bures and clean dorms. If ever there is the perfect spot to eat seafood this must be it with a surprisingly good kitchen and menu. The activities make for entertaining... More

Mana island is beautiful and the welcome we got from staff was probably the best we received in Fiji. We stayed here for two nights. The overall feel of the hostel was quite basic but had a good atmosphere. We had a three-person room which had nice beds and air conditioning, but cold showers. There wasn't much to do on... More

Just spent 7 nights in a beachfront bure at ratu kini. Rooms are basic but clean and right on the waters edge. Food was exceptional as was the service. The main thing that really made it perfect for us was the people. That goes for all staff and locals that we came across on the whole island. You could not... More

The diving is amazing, the dive staff (especially Shirley) were so helpful, professional and happy to make sure everything went smoothly. The hostel staff became my extended family during my stay, as we ate, danced, sang and drank kava with them. They were always friendly and smiling and made us feel really at home. Snorkeling on other side of the... More

We walked to Ratu Kini's for a meal and the service, ambience and food was suitable and the Fijian options were very good - highly recommend the Kokoda. Except for a staple in one of the kids meals! The price for the meals here was not much cheaper than the a la carte at South Beach at Mana Resort. In... More

Fantastic beach front restaurant with a couple of deck chairs to use throughout the day. The food was tasty and reasonably priced however during our first meal the burger bums were mouldy we were not on the meal plan and were grateful for this. The accommodation was clean and nice to have a veranda. There was a lot of wildlife... More

Ratu Kini,s is a great place to get a cold beer and great food. The staff and atmosphere is good and the view from the dining area is fantastic, right on the water. Set next to a village this place gives you first hand view of the side of Fiji that resorts miss out on. The tours are cheap such... More

We actually didn't stay here, but stayed at the resort next door. At the resort we found the food quite poor and extremely expensive, so we ended up having most of our meals here at Ratu Kini's. There aren't many other options on Mana Island. They serve both Fijian and western dishes and all was very delicious. Lunch is served... More
