All I can say is that I had the best time ever!! Vatulele island is the most precious place and the owners are beyond amazing. This island is everything you'd want the island to be.. white sand beaches, luxury accommodation, friendly personnel … Can't wait to go back!!!

My wife and I took our honeymoon to Vatulele resort, and stayed in the vele vingi house. I can't say enough how great this trip was. We had a private butler who drove us to dinner in a golf cart. We had great food, learned to scuba dive, and participated in cool local culture. This truly is 5 star, I'd... More

We were the second last couple at Vatulele before it was due to close for renovations, and quite simply we had a marvelous time. Vatulele is such a wonderful place. The people, as you will always find on the islands of Fiji, are so gorgeous, welcoming and friendly, and just great to chat with and learn about their lives on... More

We have had the same experience with vatulele canceling our honeymoon accommodation with three weeks notice. We had also paid in full and are fighting to get our money back. We are getting no consistent answers and are not confident in getting our money back..

Our wedding is just 7 weeks away and we have been looking forward to our romantic honeymoon at Vatulele and really getting excited...until yesterday. Not a personal phone call but simply an email advising us that our booking was cancelled because the new owner wants to close the resort for renovations...we booked it months ago!!

My partner and I stayed over the Christmas period of 2011. Our overall rating would be poor! Firstly, when we arrived at Nadi Airport we were not greeted by anybody. Once we did find somebody to help us - we were told that we had been booked onto an early flight without any notification. We had previously booked a day... More

We stayed at Vatulele in early December 2011. Firstly the island and the local Fijian staff were delightful. This is our first review on trip advisor and we couldn't help post our experience regarding Vatulele Resort. Our villa was large, comfortable and private...ok the towels were a little dated and stained but we understood the reasons. No amount of bleach... More

My Husband and i stayed at Vatulele in Sept 2011. To get to this resort, you have to fly via a small prop aeroplane. You know, the type where they really do weigh your entire luggage, and then they weigh you. Our bags where a little over the weight limited they set, as we where in fiji for longer than... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Vatulele, pronounced 'Vah-too-lay-lay', opened in 1990 and consists of 19 spectacular villas fronting a magnificent white sand beach. Vatulele's elegance is not expressed in any glossy opulence, rather this romantic hideaway embraces a wonderful sense of style, good humour and warm friendships. The emphasis is very much on the individual. Consistent with the owner's philosophy of providing an 'escape from the Western World', there are no telephones, faxes, newspapers, TV, money transactions or shoes! Vatulele is a popular island honeymoon destination and boasts world class scuba diving and a PADI 'Gold Palm' five star dive facility with resident instructors. The resort was named 'Small Luxury Hotel of the Year' 2000. ... more   less
