This place was fantastic. I went with 10 other people, volunteers from Europe and Australia, and we were all so surprised by the beauty of this magnificent Island.
We arrived at 6pm on Friday and left late Sunday afternoon. We paid $207 FJD each for boat transfers, accommodation, and three meals a day. The value for money was extraordinary considering all that is on this tiny Island is a small resort consisting of dorms and bures.
I stayed with the others in the Girls Dorm which was filled with other volunteer groups from Suva. 20 in total. The beds were comfortable and clean. I didn't feel hot at all because the breeze at night cooled the dorms down. This is my first time staying in a dorm but I wouldn't stay in any other accommodation here, unless you are a couple, because you have to use the shared bathroom facilities anyway. You wouldn't want to spend time in your room because it is just paradise outside.
The beach is beautiful, white sand, palm trees and crystal clear still water. You can snorkel, paddle boat, kayak around the island. The snorkelling is great if you swim out about 100 metres from the beach. So many different coloured fish and coral. The Sunset is unbelievable and absolutely stunning.
Two minor complaints that I did have was that there was no desert and sometimes the dinners needed to be a little bigger. If you asked they were happy to give you seconds if there was any left. The other complaint was the showers. They had no water pressure, were cold and no closed doors. Even though they are private it is easy for someone, anyone, to walk in on you while bathing.
I was amazed at the absolute beauty of this place. All you want to do is soak in the sun. When you leave you will feel so relaxed. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family.
