My partner and I spend four nights at Maqai, and had a absolutely wonderful time. Located right on the beach, our Bure was simple but comfortable and had views second to none. We spent our time relaxing in our hammocks, snorkelling and enjoying the time we had in paradise, completely disconnecting from "The Real World"™. The food was delicious and... More

The Maqai beach resort is truly beautiful. From the moment you arrive, time seems to stop and you can't help but relax. The management and staff make you feel like old friends, and being such a small laid back resort, you get to make friends with everyone there. The water invites you to swim or kayak, the snorkellng is great... More

If you like a super rustic adventure then this would be a great resort for you, it was not for me. The plywood cabins are very hot and stuffy and the bathrooms are awful. The staff is wonderful and the food is delicious. The dining room is lovely with a sand floor and the views are fantastic! The resort is... More

Right from the start of it, which was the pick up in Taveuni and delivery to the boat, to the final send off and delivery back to the airport, everything about Maqai was terrific. The "people" are what made all of our time in Fiji exceptional, and Maqai was no exception. As mentioned in other reviews, the staff are all... More

My husband and I booked Maqai for 4 nights for our 1st leg of our 1st trip ever to Fiji, to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary. Everything from the speedy booking confirmation, beautiful/ traditional Fijian Qamea Island welcome/departure, our primitive Bure experience, the activities (snorkeling/jungle hike/surf/ping pong), Naivivi Village visit, the delicious 3 meals per day, Kava ceremony (Tex on...

Beautiful, smiling, happy piece of paradise. The staff feel like you're a part of their big happy family. Basic comfortable accommodation, good food and if you're lucky a great wave out the front. Fantastic location, perfect place to chill out.

We eloped and got married at Maqai, and it couldn't have been a more perfect day! All the stress of wedding planning was taken away and the staff went out of their way to make it extra special for us. The end result of all their hard work was absolutely beautiful. My husband thought it was fantastic that he even... More

You could not find a more beautiful remote escape at a very reasonable price. I enjoyed the fact that with the small number of bungalows available you really get to know the guests and staff on a first name basis with communal activities and dinners. The surf break out front when working is a world class wave. The max people... More

My husband and I were looking for a getaway, change of scene after what has been a hectic period in our lives. It was by some serendipitous stroke of luck that we happened upon Maqai! From the thrill of the plane ride from Nadi to Taveuni, followed by an exciting boat ride across the Pacific, we knew we had discovered... More
