Bula! I stayed for three nights and ha a amazing time. Very simple accommodation but the people were all amazing. I made great friends and did not meet a unfriendly person. It is very cheap and a beautiful island. They have good options for excursions and the staff were fun and helpful. I would highly recommend anyone going there!

Me and my friend went to Mana Island and stayed at the Mana Lagoon Backpackers. The Hostel is very very basic and simple. You cannot expect any luxurious things! But we had the best time on Mana because the stuff is super nice. They take care of everything! the hostel is located directly in the village so you are meeting... More

The days I spent at Mana Lagoon were some of the best days of my life. Sure it may not be your 5 star resort that some of the other islands have to offer, but there is just something about this place that instantly made me feel at home. The staff go above and beyond to make sure their guest... More

Very simply the people there were incredibly understanding, welcoming, giving, and ready to improve anything at anytime. If you appreciate living in the life of a Fijian this place is for you. Spear fishing, snorkeling, rugby, and island visits only cover some of what we did. Also if your willing to create a fun evening culture everything is at your... More

After staying in Nadi for some time there were lots backpackers going back and forth from Mana with great stories so I figured I'd check it out and was not disappointed. The beach is second to none. perfect tropical water with heaps of snorkelling right out front of the hostel. The snorkelling on the other side of the island that... More

Fiji is becoming a lot more expensive and when you consider how much you pay for the very very basic rooms without power and water for long periods and basic food it is a shame as you know that the owner on the mainland is making a lot of money!!! However the island is amazing and all the staff make... More

Recommended by one of my friend who where there last year, We booked 11 nights in Mana Lagoon 3 months ago for April.
