Just as we arrived we saw several whales leaping out of the water in front of our eyes. We couldn't believe it. We went whale watching there and my hubby couldn't get enough...sooo incredible. The rooms are tidy and adequate. You have to be pretty much a do it yourselfer in terms of food though. In other words, self service... More

We booked 2 fales for our party of 6, and we stayed for 5 nights. Deep Resort is absolute beach front, the fales are clean and the staff are very helpful. The resort is about a 3km easy walk to town, or you can be driven in by a staff member. Our two children (6 & 8yrs) spent the days... More

Location wise this place can't be beaten and is a great option for families and groups as charge is per 'unit' (TOP80) regardless of numbers. For those who want to self-cater you can use the kitchen. As a solo traveller it was little pricey for me but I did suggest they reconsider this and they also told me that they... More

We stayed 3 nights at the end of the whale watching season, the beach is stunning although too rough to swim so we were happy to wave watch. The Deep is basic accommodation with lots of character and comfortable with hot water available. Loni and his family are very friendly. Loni took us on an island tour that was most... More

We enjoyed our stay here, plenty of rain the first few days, the beach was picturesque through the coconut palms and the sunsets were a delight to watch. The family were very friendly and willing to please. Loni did an Island tour and his son Robert and cousin Nonga acted as our guides. The fale was comfortable and Tony and... More

An amazing family run little resort right on the beach. Whales every day and Spinner dolphins too! The people who ran it were delightful. They looked after us, ran us around, organised horse rides, whale watching and cave walks for us, and fed us Tuna almost every night! I would say that it was by far the best place to... More

We were recommended this place because of it's ideal location, and were told we could see whales from the beach. We were delighted this was no exaggeration. Our fale looked out over the ocean and it was a cute little hut. The family that ran the resort arranged a whale watching trip with the local fisherman, which was great and... More

Accommodation was basic, but cheap and value. Just besides the beach, beach is beautiful. You can even see the whales from the room or TV room. The reception was simple and very basic building with some broken chair. Most of the time, we didn't care about it. Because we like to stay like the local people. Owner's family were shy.... More

The Deep Resort is a beautiful place where we spent a weekend with the family. The sandy beach and deep blue ocean waters are extremely lovely. The cabins, though basic are clean and comfortable. The host is a nice and friendly person who takes care in your comfortable stay at this resort. The food is good especially we relished the... More

This place has just been taken over by new owners. Even though it was only partly open when we stayed, the accommodation was very good by local standards and Eve, the host looked after us very well. - It is the only accommodation on EUA island that has a sandy beach directly in front of it.
