I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. We booked late so were only able to stay two nights but I wish we could stay longer. We actually organised our trip around staying here because of its reviews and I can now see why it is rated so highly.
We stayed in a 2 bed Garden Villa and the room was incredible. The villa was fitted out with all the comforts you would ever need, the mini bar was complimentary which is a nice touch, and the room was always clean. The outdoor bathroom was amazing.
The location is great, there's not a lot of reef for snorkelling directly off the beach but you can kayak or walk around to the other side of the island and find a secluded area to snorkel or just relax on a 'private' beach. The coral on the other side of the island was relatively undamaged which is hard to find on other resorts. I'd definitely recommend testing out your paddling endurance and checking out the other side of the island, it's beautiful.
What makes this place a stand-out is the food and the service. The food was the best I've ever had at a hotel or resort, and given it's all on a set daily fee, it wasn't that expensive. The food was really fresh and it's easy to enjoy a 5 course meal every night! The staff here are also amazing - friendly, happy and caring. Strike up a conversation and you won't be disappointed.
As I said in the title, we've stayed in a lot of hotels and resorts around the world but this was the best experience we've had. If you're travelling to Fiji and can afford to stay here (it's not cheap but still worth the money) then definitely do it!
Advice - make this or Octopus Resort the first or last stop of your trip through the Yasawas so you can use the resort speed boat to get back to Nadi - saves you 3 hours compared to using the Yasawa Flyer.
