“We will return again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Our recent trip to the Naviti was our 2nd and we travelled with our 15 year old daughter and 7 month old baby.
Despite the renovations going on we really did have a good holiday. The majority of the staff went out of their way to be so hospitable except for a select few. On the last day of our visit, the capacity increased so they did open the pool bar at night with entertainment and it was hard to get to sleep on the last night as we had to be up at 3.30am.
The buffet food was good but very repetitive and the variety is always the same but all inclusive is great as you get your drinks but the bars are very limited. The location in the bamboo restaurant is ok but a bit of a walk and can be quite humid on a hot day. The waiters and waitresses are very kind and happy all of the time. We spent most of our time in the pool area and my husband and teenager did most of the activities and snorkelled - the activities team are great and so willing to encourage you to play games. The people are lovely and they are doing their best to get through the renovations.
We will definitely return when the renovations are complete and it really is such a lovely spot.

The Naviti Resort is Fabulous. The staff, you just cant help but fall in love with. The setting is everything you could want, even a rainy is great. The diving is equal to the Great Barrier Reef if you go out to Beqa Lagoon. I hit the jackpot when Ash took me scuba diving, I didnt miss a thing and I was was in good hands always. It is sad when people have a great time and only tell friends and is sader when you only get people compain (they would complain about anthing)
Go to Fiji and stay at the Navit you will not be sorry.

Room Tip: Get an upgrade to the Villas on the beach

While the resort has suffered severe fire damage the staff have worked hard to ensure your holiday is still first class. Rooms are not affected nor are the gym, the activities centre, the pool and pool bar. The makeshift kids club, bar and entertainment area are great as is the Bamboo terrace restaurant where you have the choice of buffet, a la carte, and magnificent Chinese seafood(we had lobster and mud crab ) for a small surcharge. We have travelled extensively and have never met staff more eager to please. While there is building work taking place it does not interfere with the day to day activities of the resort and is separated from the main guest areas. There is nightly cultural entertainment by local singers and dancers followed by a D j and dancing . Also local singers during lunch and dinner add to the atmosphere. Like all resorts of this type the tour desk can arrange trips and activities and runs shuttles to its sister resort the Warwick and to Sigatoka . We would recommend people considering a holiday at the Naviti not to be put off by concerns about any inconvenience caused by last years fire. The interim facilities are more than sufficient and are made even better by the attitude of the staff. We would recommend the all inclusive package as excellent value for money and a great holiday.

Firstly I must say that my wife, family and myself are fans of the Naviti (this was our 15th stay) so you may think this to be a biased review, however I write it as I see it.
We have just returned from 12 glorious days at the Naviti, like many Fiji regulars I have been watching with interest the Tripadvisor reviews since the fire in November and to be honest was not sure what to expect. After arriving early morning we were checked in and went to breakfast, by this time our rooms were ready. The damage caused by the fire was major, however the management and staff have rallied around and under extreme circumstance have the resort up and running.
Be assured there are no marquees in operation now, all meals are served in the Bamboo Terrace restaurant at the moment, the band has relocated to the adjacent lobby area with loads of atmosphere, very comfortable with good size dance floor and bar. The service is as good or better than ever.
The nightly entertainment is fantastic with something on every night.
At dinner, the restaurant offers the three different menu's from the the themed buffet, the Talai restaurant and the Chinese restaurant, if that doesn't satisfy you I doubt if anything will.
Other than Fiji's No1 band that plays three nights per week they also have an "Island group" that plays at lunch time, pre dinner/cocktail time and at dinner, they certainly give the restaurant "real" feel.
A brand new grill restaurant is only day's from opening, this comprises the kitchen and three large pavilions that will seat what looks to be at least 150 people with great views over the Naviti Island and the ocean.
The gym is back in full operation and the activities team as happy and cheerful as ever, the pool and swim up bar is arguably the best in Fiji.
I did wake up a couple of mornings feeling a bit "crook" but it had nothing to do with the food, my wife assures me it was probably the amount of Fiji bitter consumed the previous evening !!!!
All in all the resort once again exceeded my expectations and all of this is only due to the exceptional staff and management, every department, food and beverage, front office, activities, housekeeping and entertainment, not forgetting General Manager David Woodman and his exceptional management team.
Faye and I look forward to returning later in the year

I do not understand the few positive reviews on this resort. We stayed at this resort for 6 days and it was terrible, we could not wait to get out of the place. I have travelled all over the world including 3rd world countries and this holiday was the worst. We had booked this holiday before the fire paying full price during the school holiday season. I rang the resort before we came and enquired about the fire wondering if we should change to another resort. They assured us that everything was operating normally. NO Please be aware that this fire was extensive and I would not advise anyone to go there. We were eating in a tent on the golf course, one night absolutly pouring rain with us eating in a tent standing in 6 inches of water. It is a joke, we all got very sick and left vomiting all the way to the airport and on the flight home. Thanks Naviti probably due to the food being transported 100mts from the kitchen and back to fridge after sitting out for 2 hours. Some of the meals looked the same the next day as what I saw at dinner. Do not eat the salads as they are bought out again the next day. We had the all inclusive which was ok but useless when you are so sick you cannot eat or drink anything.
Some of the staff are very nice, we played the volleyball but as the sand on the court is straight from the beach it has shells, coral, rocks all through it and twice I saw bad cut knees etc from people falling on the sand. A sieve, Naviti not good to play volleyball with coral and sharp objects in the sand! The disco is outside near the pool playing until 1am (most of the rooms are in this area) very noisy, hard to sleep, many people I spoke to at the pool also very upset by the noise. After the disco at 1am we had drunk, all inclusive customers partying into the wee hours screaming, and acting like idiots. The Naviti staff do not seem to worry about this sort of behaviour and it continued for many nights. Be aware that this resort is in building stage and construction noise will be an issue if you stay at this time. We had hammering digging starting at 7 am when we stayed. I totally agree with the review from kimandkidsX7 on the 23 Jan 13. If you are looking for a good resort in Fiji do not go here, pay a bit more and go somewhere else. I will never never go back here again. Angela from the resort do not bother putting your usual repetitive response to this review, I spoke to you in person during our trip and you were the most unhelpful, worst staff example for the resort.

Room Tip: The ocean view room is ok. Rooms are spacious but read my review first. All rooms noisy due to const...

Upon landing in Nadi, we headed out to the transfer area to find that unfortunately no one had sent the air-conditioned car I had prearranged and paid for.... At this point I was nervous thinking that everything was just going to be wrong.....How wrong I was! Once we got to the Naviti all that was forgotten about! They refunded our transfers straight away and showed us to our room after a welcoming glass of cold juice.

EVERYONE at the Naviti is so welcoming and just fabulous.... The staff operating the restaurant, the pool bar, the DJ (who is just hilarious and remembered my name after telling him just once), the cleaning staff, the activities staff (the volleyball is sooooo much fun), absolutely everyone was amazing.... Even the lady who made our omelettes at breakfast and the guys singing and playing guitar and ukulele were just awesome.....

We made some great friends during our trip that I hope to see again next year when we will be coming back and bringing our children.... My husband and I want the Naviti to be an annual holiday because it was just that special.

Definitely go with the all inclusive package if you stay at the Naviti... The arm band is all you need to order your drinks and meals. And as much as you can relax on your own, as a couple or a family... The were so many wonderful people to get to know and interact with if you so choose.

I would recommend this place 100%

Room Tip: We stayed in a garden view room which was beautiful.

My husband and I went to Fiji for the first time and stayed at the Naviti Resort. The grounds were immacculate, the rooms clean and inviting and the people were friendly, helpful and had a great sense of humour. We enjoyed a relaxing break with spending time by the pool and using the swim up bar, doing the fishing and snorkle trips and with exploring the surrounding areas. We had the all inclusive package and it was well worthit!! We stayed in an ocean view room which also had a view of the pool. we enjoyed the nightly entertainment and looked forward to seeing what was on the next day and night. We did not take our children with us this time as it was a second honeymoon, but we will definately be taking our children back when we go again. A great holiday destination!
