This was our third time to come back to kauwai! The peacefulness, the beautiful scenery, the privacy and nature experience never disappoint! Being away from any business, having time off in such a cozy and homely place where you are welcomed from the heart is a unique and personal experience. Even for children, there was a lot to do! Kayaking, going fishing, snorkelling and swimming along the sandbank was an unforgettable experience for the kids. I can only recommend this little hidden paradise where you can get lost in thoughts, daydreams and be one with the Pacific and its beautiful ocean and mountain sides!!

Cloud and David are wonderful hosts and our group enjoyed full Fijian hospitality. They really looked after us during our stay. Ovalau is a beautiful island getaway and Kauwai is the ideal place to enjoy everything the island has to offer and to relax and unwind. Perfect for those who want to escape the stresses and distractions of modern living and enjoy a more simple but unique experience.

There’s so much we want to write about Kauwai Homestay! We spent two whole weeks in Ovalau FOR WORK but at Kauwai it felt so much like a retreat. Being shut out from the technological world just made it so authentic. Thank you Ani and Nau Eta for being the best hostesses ever. We will definitely be back for more🥰 By far the the best-est Homestay experience yet! TnVee_walkabout

At first you will think KAUWAI is a place out of no where. Then you will be amazed by the breathtaking view of the extending mangroves, the landing stage and the tranquility there. The most amazing thing is Eta. She is so warm that makes you feel like at home. The food she prepared is great. Though we only stay there for 2 nights, but on the second day, we felt we have being staing here for a long time. Hi, Eta, I am sorry to write my review so late.
