how long it takes from nadi to Octopus resort?

We are looking to stay at Octopus resort, it seems to be smaller and more personal. Thinking of staying there for our last 4 days of our trip and wondering how long it takes taking a water taxi and getting to airport? Also if anyone has stayed there, about getting around to explore the other islands, we are really excited to see the Sawa i Lau caves and I believe they are in the area, just don't know how about getting there? Any advice would be great, thanks

Hi Elena,

I am not sure where you heard that Octopus is smaller and more personal, it certainly caters for a lot of holiday makers; are you not thinking of their sister resort Blue Lagoon Beach Resort? Octopus is about 2 hours by Yasawa Flyer, BLBR is about 4.5 hours both from Port Denarau.

The caves are no where near Octopus, BLBR; closer resorts are Oarsman, Nanuya to name a few, and are about 30 minutes by Joes Water Taxi.

If you are wanting to do 4 days, smaller and personal, my best suggestion would be either BLBR or Nanuya.

Happy to answer any more questions.

If you are staying at Octopus they pick you up from Port Vida and take you on their boat, no charge. The port is about 20-30 minutes from Nadi and the boat trip is an hour-ish. Otherwise you get the Yasawa flyer which you have to pay for and which takes longer.
