I did the South Seas Cruise day trip to Castaway. All I can say is Wow!! Great snorkelling, food worth every mouthful and scenery to enjoyed. I will definitely come back to Castaway on my next Fiji adventure, this time to stay longer than the couple hours that I was there for.

We just came back from a few days at Castaway Island, & we loved it! All of the staff including the musicians were so warm, friendly & accommodating. Amazing food, especially for the buffet. The reef was gorgeous, very nice snorkeling just off the beach & kayaking, paddle boarding & catamarans all included. Get a full meal plan as everything... More

If you are a lover of the Fijian Islands, you would know the importance selecting a resort to accommodate your Stomach. I am very fussy when it comes to fresh wholesome beautiful food. Castaway runs rings around so many of the resorts in Fiji. I honestly would return time and time again just to eat at Castaway! 5 stars

Bula and vinaka for your wonderful feedback regarding the Castaway Island cuisine. Chef Lance Seeto and his talented team of Chefs have worked very hard to not only bring fresh, tasty produce from the farm to the table, but they use innovative cooking methods and a fusion of both Fiji and international flavours to provide a culinary experience like no...

We recently returned from 6 nights on Castaway and I'm disappointed to say it was a real let down. On the positive side, our room was lovely and spotlessly maintained (if at times quite late in the day), the island itself was beautiful, and for the most part (except the kids meals) the food was of a very good standard...but...

This is a fabulous place to holiday but just beware if you are going in July. It can be cool and the winds on the south side of the island can be very fierce ! If you are going for the tropical holiday lots of swimming etc then reconsider July as it is just not hot enough for all the... More

Bula, thanks so much for your review. We have to say July 2014 was cooler than normal for Fiji. For the sake of other readers, we must reiterate that Fiji enjoys summer style weather year round and whilst the winter months of July, August can be a little cooler, this is also our peak season for that reason. Days are... More

We thought long and hard about whether to stay on the mainland or Castaway Island, we chose Castaway. It was the right decision with our 3 year old. Water was safe, food great, plenty of water sports, beach on different sides of the island so you could hide from the wind, kids club good, easy to access babysitters so you... More

Our 4th visit and one which was much anticipated. A few of our favourite staff had moved on and although there were outstanding people there: Aku, Mosi, Seru, Imran, Chef Lance, David, Sammi, Poni, Jerry, Eric to mention only a few, I felt that the spirit and enthusiasm I'd felt previously was missing. We had a really relaxing and fun... More
