I was a bit sceptical at the “welcome home” speech that we were given upon arrival but after an hour in.. I was sold. Staff were EXTREMELY friendly & I was pleasantly surprised at how fast they had picked up our names and/or where we were from.. (which made room for a little provincial banter. IYKYK. 😂😂) Food was delicious and affordable. Be sure to go to Modriki Island & the sandbank if you have time. 10/10 would visit again. Vinaka Castaway.
It is more than a resort experience. Steven and his team have managed to create a wonderful atmosphere. You stay once at Castaway and then you can only think of your next stay there! Castaway is definitely the resort you are looking for in the Mamanucas.
As a couple we had a very busy 2020 and was hoping to get a real vacation away from the urban bustle. Being recommended by a work mate, we decided to give it a try, a decision we have never regretted. Felt so uplifted in my spirit with the traditional reception and singing, the smiling faces and Father Christmas rocking on water on Christmas Day was surreal. Hats off to GM Steven Andrews and the leadership team. I have taken leadership courses and to witness servant leadership in action is truly amazing. The positive vibes from the leaders has transcended through the staff in an amazing way. Loved the food and entertainment from Semi and My Tau from Naitasiri completes the menu - really enjoyed their gospel numbers on the Sunday breakfast. What way to end the year, attended my last church service at the staff village. Big loloma to Emosi and co in FB and my kai Sukulu. Was literally in tears on Isa Lei tune and again to be send off by a team of wonderful servants. Really enjoyed out time in the Unique Hideaway. Malo ALL.…
Our family of 4 together with my parents and sister, spent 2nights at Castaway from 19th to 22nd Dec. The island was so peaceful and beautiful. The staff were the friendliest we'd ever met from our Fiji resorts experiences. They knew our names! And there are activities for all ages so you can do all or nothing at all and feel great. The welcome wins you over immediately and the farewell makes you nostalgic and homesick for Castaway. Our daughter was made to feel so so special on her birthday with a cake and serenading by the staff. Such a thoughtful gesture. Our parents were returnees within months and we are already planning to return again and again. Vinaka Castaway for the precious memories!
We originally planned to stay for 4 nights over Xmas 2019 but due to hurricane, our stay was extended to almost a week to almost New year. Couldn't ask for a safer shelter during hurricane. All staffs including managers went above and beyond to ensure we are well-looked after. Before the hurricane, it was a beautiful happy island with friendly staffs, sandy beaches, excellent snorkeling and diving, colorful coral. Overall a memorable stay for us! A great place for family although we traveled as couples. Coming from Europe, most of the guests are from Australia and New Zealand, we did feel welcome!
