Navini Queries

I know there are several long time Navini visitors on this site, wondering if you can answer a couple of questions for our upcoming trip. 1. Do they have filtered drinking water available or do you usually buy bottled water? 2. Do they have safes in the rooms or do you leave your valuables at reception?

Many thanks in advance.

No safes in rooms. We have always locked valuables in our suitcases, not that I have ever heard of anyone ever stealing. You can buy water at the bar. They collect rainwater in tanks and there is a filtration system on the island, I haven't had problems drinking the water.

Have a wonderful Navini holiday.

They told us the tap water was safe to drink so that’s what we did. No room safes. They didn’t even give us a room key, although said we could have one if we wanted. We left the rooms unlocked the whole time we were there with no issues.

You can get filtered rainwater at the bar or buy bottled water. As others have mentioned there are no safes in the room but the reception will look after things for you if required.

We did have a key to lock our bure but of course so do the cleaners.

If you are concerned check with the office on the island.

It is a very nice resort. I haven't written my review yet as we just got back, but the staff took good care of us. it's very quiet and peaceful. For us coming from the USA it was like having our own personal south pacific island beach for a few days.
