For the price we paid, this resort was not value for money. Its a beautiful location with much potential so I hope the Resort Manager reads this and takes onboard the feedback as I will not be recommending anyone in Australia to go here.

We decided to stay at Sinalei after reading through multiple TripAdvisor reviews of multiple hotels and resorts. The grounds of the resort are beautiful - well maintained and very lush. The pool is glorious and refreshing. We were there in the off-season (January), which meant VERY hot and humid and also very slow. The first night we were the only... More

It is beautiful to look at and the staff are lovely and friendly. The 'gym' is a joke - rusty, hot, broken down. Menu only changes every four months. Four items not available on the menu the whole time we were there. Tuna was always fish of the day. No freshly made coffee. Only stale coffee in a flask sitting... More

We visited Sinalei in May for a family member's wedding. It truly is in an idyllic location. We booked a garden view room. The first room we were taken to was right on the edge of the property and the balcony overlooked the surf camp washing lines in the adjoining property. The room was also tired and dated, not what...

We didn't stay here, but came just for drinks and the fire show. The show was excellent, and only about 20 tala each I think. I won't ruin it for you but it was both interesting and spectacular. The cocktails were tasty and the service was good. They let us have a wander around the grounds - very beautiful. The... More

Sinalei Reef is a beautifully designed and maintained resort with its gardens and pool being a focal point. The rooms are spacious and the newly renovated bathrooms are large and well fitted. They do not have TVs in the room, but in such a beautiful place, it was not missed. The restaurant delivers consistently tasty if not gourmet meals and... More

although we were there on a rather bleak and cloudy day, this is a beautiful place, good food, friendly staff, lovely place just to go in for a meal by the sea, the day, or to stay. There is a choice of spots to dine from in the restaurant (see pictures), making it a rather pleasant experience.
