My (highly discriminating) girlfriend and I stayed in the Edgewater Villas which run along the resort's spectacular ocean-frontage (the resort extends back into the lush rainforest, so you can get a different feel depending on what room class you choose). I'm a life-long swimmer, so I loved diving right off our ladder in morning when it was already a comfortable 78 degrees! The reef is just a few strokes away so I could snorkel and explore right from the room. There's lots of little rock islands on the reef as well as a larger one named Bat Island (for the awesome large vegetarian bats that reside there). You can swim to it from your room or take a short kayak - there's a small beach during low tide. Turtles, colorful tropical fish - you name it.
The diving is also awesome here and they have a dive shop right near our villa, so if you get tired of snorkeling (not possible), you can easily book a dive - which we did one afternoon. It was easy going sraight from the resort, so you avoid the travel and heavy lifting - being dropped off at your room from the boat at the end of a long days dive is GREAT! You divers know what I'm talking about. Overall, snorkeling in Natawa (sp?) Bay was the best experience since there are these small dolphins that live in the bay that will come up to your boat - never seen anything like it and I live in San Diego where we see the larger variety all the time.
Resort's food was delicious and the staff are so REAL and friendly - totally authentic and not touristy which is what really rounded out this fabulous experience. I found out that this is a family owned an operated botique - the charisma and attention to detail really transfer over. The beauty of Fiji and friendliness of the people does not compare to any other trips I've taken and I've been to the southern island before on a seperate trip as well as all over Australia, US, Europe and Thailand.
Oh - get the "Fiji Bitter" (locals call is Fiji Baby) - much better than the gold label beer.
