My husband and I chose Castaway for our honeymoon destination and I cant rate the Island, resort and staff highly enough. We stayed for one week in a beautiful ocean view bure (6/ono) which was cosy, private, traditional yet comfortably modern. All the bure's are discreetly sheltered and mostly surrounded by lush tropical bush and immaculately kept gardens. The thatched... More

Our family (10 and 11 year old boys) had an incredible time at Castaway Island for Spring Break in early April 2014 for 4 days / 3 nights. We flew all night from Southern California, then took the 2 hour boat and arrived to our new paradise for the next 4 days. We knew hardly anyone who had been to... More

Bula Cheersman & family, What an absolute delight to read your review of our little tiny island paradise. We feel very humbled that you consider Castaway Island, Fiji to be a bucket list item and so very happy to read about the wonderful family times you spent with us. We often say that Castaway is 'everything the world isn't anymore'... More

We had a great Spring Break week 3/30 to 4/6 with our family of 5 from Pleasanton CA at Castaway Island Resort. Our oceanside Bure on the Sorth Beach (no. 43) was small but sufficient. They are more suited to 3 or 4 people, but that fact that they let a family of 5 cram in was fantastic (1 King... More

Bula Emcfall We love welcoming our friends from America and we are so glad your experience was worth the few extra hours flying time. The South Pacific Islands are very different to Hawaii as you found. Small, pristine, barely inhabited and another world away from your hometown. We are one of the few islands that allow an additional person in... More

When we booked our time at Castaway the picture our travel agent painted for us was not as pretty as had in mind. When we got there though it was great food people and rooms where stunning and great facilities. The setting is great and I would imagine it was agreat place to take kids. We had a great room...

We have recently returned from 9 nights on Castaway in an island bure. It was our first trip to Fiji, we arrived at Castaway after spending one night at Denarau and even though it was pouring with rain when we arrived the staff still came out, sheltered us under umbrellas and sang and welcomed us. The Island itself is just... More

Bula Coffeelover1970! It's so lovely to read such a comprehensive review. Thank you for taking the time to provide these comments. You are absolutely right when you say the Castaway family of staff are "genuine, friendly and approachable". Whilst we know we have one of the greatest pieces of real estate on the globe and a lovely well maintained resort,... More

My husband and I have just returned from another amazing trip to Castaway Island. This time, we stayed for 5 nights and cannot rate the resort more highly! The room was clean with a great view, very comfortable bed and a ton of space! Luxury indeed! The staff were warm and welcoming with some remembering us from our previous stay!... More

Hubby and I enjoyed a very short stay here (2 nights) and were disappointed we didn't book longer! We would much rather have stayed here for week as opposed to Denarau.

Been to this resort on two occasions. First time was around 5 years ago and it was magical. We had an Oceanfront Bure and the tide would come right to our doorstep. We went again last year and found that a seawall was installed making the beachfront less accessible and prone to "potholing" after high tide. This is understandable but... More

Dear JoeB Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay last year in September. The installation of a sea wall on one of our beaches has been a necessary step to ensure the beach front bures could be maintained in their position as the beach has eroded over time, putting some bures at risk of having to be...
