We travelled from the Airport by bus for $8.50 (ask to stop at Maui Bay!) which took around 2 hours. Although a little hard to find at the end of the gravelly private road, we were welcomed warmly. We were upgraded for free from a Mango view room to one of the spacious Bures with two large beds, lounge area,... More

Wow, what an amazing place! Small and intimate and the Bure's are beautiful! Clean, fresh and very friendly. Can't wait to go and visit them again. When we got there we were offered a banana smoothie on the house (our room weren't ready yet). About 20 minutes later when they were done with our room, they took our bags for... More

I booked this place online from the positive reviews. We were travelling as a foursome with a 10 year old, had booked two mango rooms which I had tried to upgrade prior to arrival. One mango room was like a dorm and dirty, closets were broken and shower filthy. Thankfully they gave us one Bure which was beautiful at first... More

My review is mixed as there were great elements but things that also need some attention. It is very secluded, 1.5 hours from Nadi airport and you can get here for a $150 F taxi or a bus from the airport for @$8 F.

If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing break, away from the crowded resorts on the island, then de vos is ideal. Situated in a quiet nook of Maui Bay, you feel miles away from the main road which travels up and down the Coral Coast. Yet conveniently, you're just a 10 minute walk from a well stocked shop and...
