Masai Beach Eco Resort is a perfect place to escape to. It is very different to a stay in one of the bigger resorts in Fiji. So peaceful and laid back with exceptional staff and delicious food. Thank you to all for such a memorable stay.

We stayed at Maqai in the winter of early 2010 for 2 weeks. We were backpacking at the time and found Maqai to be the ideal place to stay.The best part about this resort is the staff. They will go above and beyond to make sure you are having a great holiday. We would recommend this resort to anyone!

Bula Vinaka for the very awesome belated review!! The staff are thinking you must have been dreaming and reflecting on your great times at Maqai 5 years ago. We are thinking you should return to give yourself another 5 years of good memories. Maqai has got even better with a revamp of the resort, with an amazing new food menu,... More

My husband and I travelled to Fiji for our honeymoon for two weeks in Dec 2014. We stayed at the Coral Coast (the Warwick), Denarau (Sheraton) and at Maqai. Maqai was the most memorable by far! Waking up to the sound of the ocean just metres away from the buree was spectacular. The island is an untouched piece of secret... More

We can't say enough good things about Maqai Beach Eco Resort! We were only able to visit for one night, but it was worth it and now we know we must come back!

It's so beautiful. The welcome was really friendly, we have a nice bungalow close to the sea with ensuite, the meals tastes wonderfull. It is the paradies! The travel to come here is long, but it is worthwhile! All are so friendly and helpfull. The Kava session in the evenings with the locals are really funny.

Excellent vacation to get away from it all. This place is beautiful and the staff are completely wonderful. Perfect on the beach accommodation, with great meals with the rest of the guests in a homely setting that makes you forget that the staff are actually working there. Many a night were spent sitting around with the staff and other guests... More

Maqai Beach Eco resort was one of the best places my partner and I have ever stayed. It took us two planes, a car ride and a boat to get there but once we finally got there it was well worth it.

We were lucky enough to only be very few guests at the resort and it was beautiful.

We loved the low key vibe of this gorgeous stretch of Fijian beach! The rooms are so charming and very clean. The food was gourmet, and the service excellent! The cook surprised us with a beautiful homemade cake one night, because she knew we were celebrating our anniversary. It was so thoughtful and sweet. The staff is very genuinely warm... More
