A very different place to stay. If you love a wild experience this is for you. We stayed here for a week and loved the place. Only get to it by boat and only get off by boat so when a storm comes through as happened to us this is it, you have to stay ! Very friendly staff who... More

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

Bula Chief, Vinaka for the excellent review!! We are most appreciative that you loved being part of our homely environment. You are spot on with this comment, a house is a house, but a home is full of smiles, laughter and a feeling of comfort and relaxation. Maqai is a home and a village for all who have visited, and...

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. Your own little cabin right on the sand looking straight out to the ocean, reef and fantastic surf... More

We were lucky enough to only be very few guests at the resort and it was beautiful. Beautiful Sandy beach, very nice snorkeling directly off the beach (but not admittedly not the best for just taking a swim) but best of all was the wonderful staff who made us feel more than welcome and part of the family. I can... More

Vinaka for the incredible review!! You have made us feel very special with Maqai being your best place in Fiji, which is very high praise. That is wonderful that you felt included as part of our family, and I am sure smiling when you remember us is the best feeling that a holiday should bring. Moce from the Maqai team. More

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

Qamea is a beautiful island and the resort is right at the beach front. When we went there we've been the only guests so it was very quiet, nothing for party animals! There is not much to do, but the snorkelling is good. It's a nice place and the staff is friendly, but I wouldn't stay too long as it... More

We spent 7 weeks in Fiji on numerous islands in April 2014 as part of a world tour and this one is a difficult one to comment. I would not recommend it for families as the accomodations are extra small (unless you take an extra one for the kids). The ground it self is rather small with the rainforest pressing... More

We stayed on Maqai Eco Resort, and it was a lovely stay. Unfortunately for us, the weather was for 50% of the time quit bad (rain, cold), and when the weather is bad, there is not much else to do than just sit back, chill, reading and sleeping.. When the weather was nice, we enjoyed our time with a snorkeling... More
