I stayed in a dorm with about 16 beds or so. It wasn't full when we arrived, only about 4 other people in the room. It gradually got fuller over the course of our stay. I stayed in a bunk bed (top bunk) with my friend below me. It wasn't that the bed was uncomfortable just that if you moved... More

Pretty good resort for us because we had a cottage under the coconut trees on the beach and air conditioning and ensuite bathroom....and 3 meals a day.So what more could you ask for ?? Lots of friendly Fijians about too.

I didn't actually say here (stayed at the resort), but did spend a lot of time here for diving and just about every meal. Firstly it is very friendly. The service is relaxed (meaning slow), but the food it tasty and the beer is cheap (compared to the resort). It is right in the beach and is a great place... More

Such a beautiful, friendly place which got better as my stay for 5 night progressed. I stayed in a garden bure with aircon and woke to the sound of birds having breakfast from the mango tree outside. The staff were amazing and their friendly and fun sense of humour made the evening entertainment such fun. The food was always tasty... More

Our trip was for four days to get my open water licence. The experience was great and I had Shane as my dive instructor. A special shoutout to gus for his effort at limbo and his jokes. Diving, being new to it, it was definetly out of the normal but once you are underwater, it's like another world and it... More

If you want to be on an island you could do worse than here. Meal plan and accommodation is good value when booked through hostelworld. Trips are ok and evening entertainment is a welcome distraction. However we were there for the Fijian night and it felt like we were not invited.

We used to come to Ratu Kini for lunches and dinners. Great food, friendly atmosphere and amazing company. Very reasonably priced and food and drinks. Beautiful location and can watch sunset from the restaurant. Haven't tried breakfast, but I think it's going to be just as good as other meals :))

I have a bad experience at this resort. Before I booked the resort, I have asked them by email, "how many times can I dive before leaving the resort?" They answered 3 times on the second day and 2 times can be done on the third day and I can leave at 11:30 after diving. So, I booked 5tanks and... More

Oh where do I start. We are young family of 4 so we rented the beach family bure. It was basic and very spacious for Fiji standards and may I add gorgeous beach front. but... you can feel the springs digging into your back and the shower was somewhat questionable, dirty and with a trickle of super hot water. We... More
