The dorm room is beyond basic, there was only 3 people plus us staying on this whole half of the island which was very quiet, room was okay but I think there were bed bugs in some of the mattresses, not in mine thankfully. There was also a rat in the room and climbed up my friend sheet while she... More

We had an amazing time at this Backpackers. We stayed here for 3 nights in a large group, and I cannot recommend this Backpackers highly enough. A very big thank you to John (Bartender) and Guss (A man of many talents). 1) The meals at the restaurant were all fantastic. I was surprised by every single meal that I had.... More

Spent 4 wonderful days here diving and relaxing. We stayed in a beachfront cabin, which was clean and nice. Staff was superfriendly, including the diving instructors. The location is amazing! Accept that things can take some time and doesn't always turn out as you expect, relax and enjoy while waiting. We loved being here!!

The Staff were amazing! Layla, Nathan and Gus made our 2 night stay very memorable. I would highly recommend going fishing and get to cloud 9 bar while you stay here. Beachfront bures are clean and tidy. Everybody gets a warm fijian welcome when they arrive and an emotional farewell from Gus on his guitar when they leave. We stayed... More

We booked a four night stay at Ratu Kini's and ended up staying for 6 weeks!! Never wanted to leave. We met so many backpackers and staff members that we now call friends.. Food was lovely and snorkelling off the back of the island was fantastic! Trip to remember :)

We all enjoyed our three days spent here. Bure was clean & roomy. Meals were generous & tasty. The staff are fantastic, especially with the kids. They loved Gus and didn't want to leave. We had fun each evening and day trips were amazing. Great dive staff and sites. Also all transfers can be organised (land & sea) which turned... More

Before you stay at Ratu Kini, you need to set your expectations or else you will probably be disappointed. I would definitely not recommend coming to Ratu Kini if you are looking for a resort Island where you will spend the whole time relaxing and beach sitting. For me, I came to Ratu Kini with a set plan to Dive... More

We were slightly dubious about staying here as we booked directly through ratu kinis via email. We booked the "chilling at ratu kinis" package which included 4 nights accommodation, all meals, all transfers, snorkelling and kayaking. It all seemed a bit hazy as we were told on the emails we didn't have to pay anything until we had been picked... More

I mean, if you're expecting a 5 star resort, then you picked the wrong place. This island is not well developed in most areas (there is another high end resort on the other side I think) so expect to see cockroaches, frogs, lizards, etc. The dogs roam around looking for food but they're friendly. I knew what I was getting... More
