Very nice resort. Fantastic staff. excellent place for snorkelling and diving. Village tour is fantastic. Food is not perfect which is one of the problems with Fiji in general. Great place to get away from everyday life and relax while having great activities.

Overall my stay was fantastic and issues were dealt with promptly. There was a miscommunication where I received an email to meet the driver for the 2.5 hour drive from the airport to the resort at the International arrivals area even though I was coming in on a domestic flight from another island. It turns out he was waiting at... More

Fabulous place to relax and just get away from it all. There is limited wifi access and no TV in any of the villas which was perfect for us as an ideal way to unwind away from 21st century living. However, this may make it a difficult place for a modern young family to love as much as couples who... More

We actually stayed in a villa nearby, but visited the resort for 3 mornings. Beach is limited - don't expect the white sand picture perfect Fiji - although great sunsets! Can't comment on accom, but activity price was extraordinary -$48 per person for snorkelling, $200 per person for a 4 hour "hand line fishing". Restaurant food for lunch was acceptable... More

This lovely resort is set high on a point with beautiful views out to surrounding islands. The individual cabins were well spaced for seclusion and very well appointed with airconditioning, fans and lovely comfortable beds. The resort has suffered from the cyclone but the manager and his staff have worked tirelessly to carry out repairs and we experienced no inconvenience... More

Loved the drive to this ' out of the way' resort. Rakiraki, about 20 k's away has a supermarket to stock up with cheap grog and nibbles The bures are excellent and all that clam sea views have excellent sea views......sometimes the can be hit and miss in resorts. The road in is a little rough so once there you... More

Went to Wananavu for a few days before a dive trip to the Solomons (Fiji is a gateway to the South Pacific). Despite the devastation caused by Cyclone Winston, Wananavu is running smoothly. The dive operation was first rate, although the reefs did show considerable damage from the storm. Food was perfectly fine at the restaurant with a large breakfast... More

We went for a no children, laze around, read books, eat, drink and relax holiday. Our visit was post Cyclone (we had a chance to cancel but went to support the economy) so we saw some of the destruction and struggles of the locals. Luckily the resort was well in tact so our holiday went ahead. What we really enjoyed... More
