We found a great deal for diving and accommodation on the Ratu Kini Hostel website; 4 nights, 10 dives, all meals included for an hugely discounted price. The diving is amazing, the dive staff (especially Pete and Shirley) were so helpful, professional and happy to make sure we went to a different dive site every time. The hostel staff became... More

An excellent place to dive - stayed at one of their beach front units and it was excellent - so close to a really excellent beach. Friendly service. We enjoyed the meals here and noted that quiet a few people from the next door expensive Japanese resort came across to eat here, which says something for the quality of the... More

Ratu kini is a simple hostel with unconfortable matress, but à beautiful atmosphere! The main beach is not really good to swim during afternoon, but there is one on the other side of the island, just take the Time to discover the island! The people are incredibly Nice if you take the Time to speak with them and get to... More

We paid about 80 dollars per night for an AC double room around end March. Ok, the room isnt that bad, with a cute toilet and a balcony, but nothing special either. As the location tucked back to the village and the facilities in the room are very basic, its obviously way overpriced ( but same as the entire Fiji... More

The bure, room and bath are ok, Mattress very bad and food not exceptional, despite of the daily price... Problems with the transfer both to and from the island, I have lost 400FJD (~160 euro) even if it was included in the package I buyed! I hope in the future :)

The bure on the water is in a fantastic location. This is a difficult review to write as it is a backpackers lodging. Not sure how it compares to other backpacker facilities. We were in room 2 which had a great view. The accommodations are definitely minimal. The electricity is not consistent. It is turned off each day from 3-5pm.... More

The island looks stunning when you first arrive on the boat and the island itself is. However, the dorms here were awful. The mattress was only a few inches thick so you can feel the wooden slats of the bed every time you move in your sleep. The dorm rooms are only fan rooms, no air con. I wasn't in... More

The backpackers is much the same as most backpackers really, dorms and some doubles and it's reasonably priced. There were no hot showers in our dorm room but it's so hot all the time you welcome it and it's refreshing. The dive resort is run by the people that live in the village around it and all of the staff... More

Contacted the resort directly and got a good deal including the transfers and meals. We were picked up in Nadi and taken to the boat after which it's a 45 min or so ride to the island. Found the beach front cottage perfect being just 5 meters from the beach and was tidy & clean. The meals included weren't too... More
