If you're looking to get away from the tourist zone, head to Rakiraki and stay at Wananavu. My husband and I visited for a 10 night stay in late September/early October, and we were very impressed with the resort. The staff is professional and courteous. Grounds are well maintained, and rooms are cleaned daily. We opted to stay in one of the beachfront bures (#6), and was very pleased that we did.
The food was better than expected. We had the meal package and did not go hungry. Truly, every meal was very good. You won't go wrong picking the specials of the day for lunch and dinner. Also, don't miss out on happy hour with the best view of the gorgeous Fijian sunsets.
We were there to dive and the onsite dive op, Dive Wananavu was also top notch.
This was the cleanest and most organized dive operation that we have encountered. The dive managers, Chris and Vicky were very nice people and very easy to talk to. They really enjoy what they do and want their customers to have a great time diving in Fiji. The dive guides were a lot of fun and all had good personalities and a great sense of humor.
We really enjoyed ourselves at Wananavu. We would definitely come back. Fiji is a beautiful country with lovely, happy people.
