We've just returned from a relaxing stay at Crusoes Retreat where we stayed in a deluxe seaside bure. The resort is quite isolated if you don't have car which we did not. However, Crusoes can arrange for you to get to wherever you'd like to go. We went to Suva one day for the Hibiscus Festival, about a 90minte drive... More

My family and I visited Crusoe's back in July. We had the most amazing time there-the beautiful if somewhat shy staff gave our family a true sense of Fijian culture, pride and hospitality, It was as if we had become a part of a community and belonging from the moment we arrived. We took 3 adult children with us who... More

No room ready until next day, Atu did apologize for the error which was fine, once moved into our new room the view was amazing..... but we had no kettle, no shower curtain, no hot water,... More

Bula Vinaka Karen- Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Crusoe’s Retreat. It is quite apparent and very unfortunate that Crusoe’s Retreat was truly a bad fit for the three of you - young single women, who would have been better suited to a larger resort property, and seeking a much more exciting...

We made a return trip to Crusoe's after ten years, and had a fantastic welcome with a drink and ham sandwiches. We were very pleased to find that some of the staff we made friends with ten years ago were still there, there seemed though, to be a little something missing. A trip to Fiji is really a trip to...

Our first trip to Fiji and the view as we travelled over the hills and down the driveway to Crusoes was nothing short of amazing. Easily the best view we saw for all our travels.

Crusoe's is indeed beautiful and the views are wonderful. Sadly, this was its main attraction for us. The staff were very polite and quietly friendly, but lacked the enthusiasm for life that seems to be the Fijian way. "Bula" had been replaced by a more formal Good morning" or "Good afternoon" which I found quite sad. The hotel does not... More

We spent 7 nights at Crusoe's Retreat in July - it was a great week of total relaxation.. Stayed in an Ocean View Bure - the view was amazing and the walk up and down the hill to the dining room/beach was good to combat the good food eaten regularly. Happy hour was always a hit even with the kids... More

We spent our holiday at Crusoe's Retreat in June\July, with my wife and 18 month old toddler daughter for 12 days. We stayed in the Sea Side Bure\bungalow, which for a young toddler\family is perfect as there is a large lawn area in between the Bure and the beach.

This little gem of a resort, Crusoe's Retreat, was just the place for our winter getaway. Having only 28 bures, one quickly becomes part of the small holiday- making crowd; it doesn't take long to feel relaxed and at home. Happy Hour at the poolside bar soon became like a gathering of old friends. The sea front bures look out... More
