Maqai Eco Surf Resort is a great mid-range place to hang out. Costs are more than backpacker hostels but far less than other Taveuni upscale resorts. The beach-front bures are kept very clean, and the beds were quite comfortable. Visitors not used to South Pacific summer heat & humidity might find the bures a bit on the warm side at... More

A perfect holiday for our family. Stunning location for snorkelling, surfing, swimming and relaxing. Staff were wonderful, food delicious and rooms rustic but comfortable. We will definitely return to this idyllic slice of paradise. Thankyou Maqai!

Heavenly stay at a lovely well kept clean and tidy resort. The staff were absolutely wonderful and made us feel like royalty but like old friends at the same time. The food was fantastic and most tastes were catered for. Rooms were hot but tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Beds were very comfortable. Outside shower and toilet were novel but... More

We stayed at Maqai for two weeks - we wanted a quiet and chilled out break, away from the stress of the world. We loved the idea of glamping as we are not glitzy "look at me" type of people. We liked the idea of going barefoot to our meals, not having to glam up for a meal or worrying... More

What a great place to stay! Remote and secluded. Great food. Snorkeling right off the beach. The people who work at the resort are ultra friendly and make you feel at home. Perfect for those looking for a chill place to stay - but don't need every single amenity.

A group of 8 of us descended on Maqai a few weeks back. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The bure/tents were spacious (for a glamping experience), had a wooden floor, clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. The highlight of the trip were the staff, who were ever helpful, present and just a heap of fun. It is hard to... More

We spent 6 days here and enjoyed every minute of it, very relaxed, very beautiful and a little bit rustic but overall amazing. The weather is quite changeable compared to the west side of Fiji but there's something amazing about the rain hitting the roof of the tent while the ocean is crashing onto the shore. If you get a...
