Tubakula is a decent distance from the nearest township of Sigatoka, by public transport back and forth is easy and reliable. Best value option are the intercity buses, Sunbeam and Pacific Express, about FJD$2-3 one way in luxury AC buses. Minibuses are also a good option. Taxis are the most convenient and taxi stands are close to the supermarkets and markets in town but beware drivers who will try to rip you off. Insist they turn on their meters and you should be fine.
The private bungalows are fully self contained. General layout is a loft bedroom on the top floor, with the main bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, lounge/dining area downstairs. Covered porch for outdoor entertaining. Shared laundry facilities are found beyond reception and are minimal, no washing machines, but each bungalow has a private clothesline outside.
Bathrooms are modern and spacious as well as very clean. The whole complex in fact, including bungalows and the grounds, are kept in great condition. Large walk in shower. Reliable hot water too, as its heated by gas heaters contained in each bungalow.
Kitchen was large and spacious and had everything required to cook your own meals. Two-burner gas stove, good range of pots and pans as well as kitchen gadget, dishes, utensils. Also a handy addition was a selection of storage containers in several sizes, god for storing your kitchen supplies (ants are not an issue unless you leave food scraps lying around). Two-door fridge, not a bar fridge. Reception has a small selection of essential groceries you can buy but otherwise go to town and you'll find everything you need at the 2-3 supermarkets and the fruit & veg market. Highly recommend the cheap and plentiful seasonful fruits, good quality and range as well as prices because this area is known for its agriculture.
Very reasonably priced, especially when compared to the much more pricey resorts just down the road. Beautiful beach, good for snorkelling, various tropical fishes, snake-like sea cucumbers, bright blue starfish, and also spotted a sleek white and yellow sea snake.
I have stayed here twice so far and was both times generally impressed though noticed a decline in the quality and condition of facilities over 6 months. the free snorkelling equipment had become worn and damaged and hadnt been replaced. Seals on our fridge were past their lifetime and had trouble closing the fridge. That would be the only complaint I have. Otherwise, good value, friendly service,and very good amenities mean I will definitely return myself and happily recommend, especially to those who prefer to explore on their own and their own pace, and cook for themselves. Recommend attractions, Kula Eco Park across the road, and the Sigatoka Sand Dunes, a National Heritage Park where their have been significant archaeological finds.
Roadside bungalows get a little traffic noise from the highway but are still excellent value for mon...
