We recently stayed at Mana island resort. For four of our nights ( all of them ) we dinned at the backpackers. It was a great restaurant filled with a happy , cheerful vibe. The food was great and at a reasonable cost for the serving size. Every night there was entertainment from the Fijians beautiful singing. The first couple... More

I have been visiting Fiji for 10 days, staying 3 nights in Nadi, 2 in Beachcomber Island and I'm currently spending 5 nights in Mana Island. If you are considering coming to Ratu Kini, my suggestion is to change your mind and go somewhere else! I would have given 0 points but it's not possible. I have never written a... More

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

We spent a lot of timing researching where to stay on Mana and we made the right choice. It's the best value for money on the island. We had dorms with food included. 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.
