About
A true Fijian Island experience right on the doorstep of Fiji's famous Coral Coast! Just 45 minutes from Nadi. A few miles north of Natadola Beach on Fiji's Coral Coast and only 45 minutes drive from Nadi, this private island paradise is easy to get to yet feels very far away from it all. Robinson Crusoe Island Tours specializes in unique cultural experiences for the adventure seeker, including mud-crab catching, kava ceremonies, and spectacular fire shows. Located on Likuri Island , Robinson Crusoe Island Tours offers memorable cultural experiences in a laid back beachside setting. The island and the surrounding area are steeped in historical significance, with ancient pottery dating back 3,500 years found nearby. Historically it was reserved as a sacred island for ceremonies as well as a place of recreation for the paramount Chief of the area. There are day shows every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, and "Legends of the Pacific" show every night Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

    Weather was not on our side
    Unfortunately weather wasn’t on our side when we attended this tour - which isn’t the fault of the tour at all! The service was fantastic, the trip from Denarau to the boat was 1 hour 20 each way plus a 40 minute boat trip out to the island. When we arrived at the island we were greeted by a big tropical storm, the staff were so accomodating and managed to keep the show going with little interruptions. Dinner was delicious but if you have little children I would recommend packing snacks for them. The bar ran out of Coronas within the first 15 minutes which was disappointing also. I would recommend packing a light jumper for the journey back on the boat at night and bug spray to keep the mozzies at bay. Otherwise this trip great.

    Incredible Cultural Experience
    This day tour was an amazing cultural experience. The river cruise (about 40 minutes) to the island was lovely, but it was when you arrive at the island (known as Likuri Island and Robinson Crusoe Island) where the adventure really begins. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a group of locals who sing and play music as you disembark off the boat. The day was so well planned, with snorkelling, a cooking class, coconut cracking and a lovo lunch as well as the opportunity to watch the locals step on hot stones, witness the fire and knife dancing show, watch a famous hermit crab race, experience a weaving class (and take away a homemade bag!) and learn a lot about Fijian remedies on a medicine walk. In addition to this, you will have some time to also relax on the island. Drinks are included with the tour price, and the traditional lovo lunch is truly a special experience. This tour is a must if you want to experience culture on a beautiful Fijian Island. The views on the island were beautiful, the water was warm and the locals were all such friendly and hospitable people. You can also stay on the island, so enquire about this before booking the day tour, as the island is a beautiful place to stay for one night, or more!

    More than a Dinner Cruise
    This tour was absolutely amazing. The entertainment commenced as soon as we stepped foot on the bus and continued right through the night. The food was amazing, the singing and dancing was spectacular. All staff were so friendly and eager to make everyone happy. We did the Sunset Cruise and Dinner Show and would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you Robinson Cruise. Regards Wayne and Donna Cavanagh Australia

This full day experience is a must
What an awesome day/night
Very friendly staff with amazing talents.
The day started being picked up from Denarau Island which took us to the pick up point at the jetty before we started our river cruise.
We arrived at Likuri Island with a welcoming party singing to us.
The day was filled with activities on the island like - coconut demostration, guided village tour explaining the medicinal plants. Some went off for snorkeling
We received a lesson in cooking mud crabs, one of which was caught in the river on the way.
The BBQ buffet lunch was amazing with so much food.
We experienced the welcome ceremony once the afternoon visitors arrived with Kava tasking, then the demo on the Fijian Lovo which was filled with our dinner.
The fire walking demonstration was amazing to watch with the story telling along with it to, then the bon fire on the beach before an amazing dinner.
The talent of all the staff and how multi skilled they are. Both the female and male dancers were just fantastic to watch.
The only thing I was disappointed in was my massage. The full body was only a back massage even though I asked for a full body and feet. The massage was disappointing but she was an amazing dancer.
Thank you for an experience we will never forget. Best value for money
I also need to mention Sean (one of the staff) - he was so funny, full of knowledge and fantastic at fire dancing. May you continue to do well and stay safe

Save your money and do a proper island visit/cruise with either captain cook or south sea cruises.

The “cruise” is simply a barge ride up the river and it broke down on the way there and on return. The “onboard bar” is simply someone passing around a clipboard and esky.

The facilities on on the island are all so neglected from the the filthy toilets, broken tables and awful beach activities. The bonfire was the saddest attempt I’ve ever seen and went out after about 15 minutes of us walking away from it and the “fire walking” was simply someone standing on some coals for 15 seconds

Unlike other island visits drinks aren’t included so it becomes very expensive for a full day.

The tacky traditional performance (set to modern music on an awful sound system) went on for way too long and gave us all cultural cringe.

Fabulous family day out that was very well organised. There was something for everyone to do and the itinerary for the day was well explained. You could choose to take part or spend time enjoying the beach and the resort. We loved all the experiences but were very disappointed with the snorkelling. There wasn’t much to see. Coming from Queensland Australia I think we have been spoilt with the Great Barrier Reef. The skies opened up on our boat trip back up the river and our captain was a trooper as not only could he not see because the rain was so heavy, he got soaking wet. All the staff were great and we really enjoyed all the experiences.

We did the sunset dinner cruise. Where to start.Firstly, the term ‘cruise’ is very deceptive. We were squashed on to what can only be described as a large tinny. Don’t dress up for this occasion as water easily drenches the floor of the ‘boat’. The bar is an esky with a handful of drinks.
On arrival, we were greeted by song which was pleasant but it quickly went downhill again, when the welcome ceremony was clearly watered down with false information eg one of the dancers representing a local chief.
The fire walking was underwhelming as was the bonfire. The food was decent, and catered to vegetarians.
The main event which was the dancing and fire throwing was done to a pre recorded narration with modern music and dragged on.
The display seemed to aim to tick as many stereotypes of Polynesian culture as possible as opposed to being authentic. The dancers also dropped machetes and fire sticks almost hitting the crowd on occasion.
The resort is managed by an Australian woman who’s main agenda was getting as many likes on social media as possible. She walked to every guest several times requesting they go the Facebook page. However the only positive was being informed that some of the proceeds of the show go back to the local villages (which I hope is the case).
Save yourself the time and money and have a more authentic experience of beautiful Fijian culture and history.

A must do when visiting Fiji. We did the sunset cruise and dinner with fire dancing / show at the resort. The staff from the jetty to the resort and back were amazing. The cultural experience of the show was incredible - added flare of a bit of comedy was hilarious. Our son wasn’t feeling well while we were there and all the staff sprung into action to help with fans, water, cold towels and they kept checking in on him to make sure he was ok. The GM was there and was part of the amazing staff that helped our son. Cannot thank you enough, we will be back. Vinaka

Worst trip ever! From rudeness and unprofessionalism of staff to food, amenities etc. Hardly do NOT recommend this place! These people are fake and hypocritical, talking smack behind customers back. Amenities are neglected. So far the worst experience I ever had!

Not real Firewalking in show.

Public toilets have lime scale and broken door locks.

General sense of neglect.

The real problem here is the accommodation and facilities in general.

Dirty, run down accommodations, rubbish under the edge of the pool, tarps on ALL the accommodation roofs.

Photos are not current not even last decade.... Facilities are worn out and the water sports equipment is faded from the sun.

Ants in the huts (many), and lime scale in the toilet. Rotted wood, mouldy grout. and broken tiles in the shower.

SQUALID

Virtually impossible to get a refund. Terrible experience.

Promised a refund I had to do a chargeback through my bank as did not honour agreement for a refund which I was promised would be prompt.

Lots of hidden extras (beware they are cleverly worded), Would NEVER be allowed to continue to operate in NZ

Read the terrible reviews on trip advisor and BELIEVE them....

The truth is there is no money inside this business to be spent on maintenance or acting ethically.

Don't stay whatever you do - if you want the firedance / just do dinner even better do a show on the mainland.

We went on the Sunset dinner cruise and show. We were transported on a boat with hard wooden benches which put a damper on the tour but the dinner and show made up for it. We were taken to Likuri island where we were offered Kava to drink . Dinner was cooked in a lovo in the ground where firewalkers walked on the hot coals after the dinner was removed. We were serenaded by several singers by a beach bonfire prior to eating dinner. After a delicious meal we were entertained by dancers doing polynesian dances they were highlighted with fire dances and knife dancing. We were honored for our anniversary along with a newlywed couple with a special dance. The evening fire dance finale was spectacular.

Was very excited to visit this island given what is advertised on the website but nothing was as expected. Facilities were dirty, toilets were grim and didn’t flush and showers weren’t clean. Some of the activities advertised did not run and when our group requested banana boating we were asked to pay for it! Most of the staff were helpful and accommodating. The fire shows were really good and snorkelling and booze cruise was fun!

This was a great experience and a fantastic night for our 40th Wedding Anniversary.
We stayed at the Intercontinental Resort 10 minutes from the river so getting there by the tour bus was not a problem. The boat ride was definitely an experience in itself and typically traditional. On the island we enjoyed all the entertainment and food. This was our first time in Fiji and this was a night to remember, we loved the entertainment and the tradition. The people on the island are 5 star and we welcomed their passion, friendliness and culture.
