Royal Davui really is as idyllic as the pictures on its website suggest. The 16 vales (i.e. suites) are scattered around this small island, which contains nothing but the resort itself. The vales are very well designed and elegantly decorated. The view out over the ocean from the decks of our vale (#3) was stunning. The lush and abundant landscaping shows great care and plant knowledge, with a lovely mix of colors and textures.
The staff are unfailingly friendly, gracious and helpful. The managers, Jule and Darryl, are friendly and responsive. The food is very good, served in a restaurant set on large platforms focused on a magnificant old banyan tree, with the sound of the waves nearby.
Snorkeling, even off beach, is very good, and we got our scuba certification (via a referral course) while there -- a good decision. A Sunday trip to a Fijian church service on a nearby island was a trip highlight, with the villagers demonstrating their remarkable singing skills with unaccompanied multi-part hymns. Another highlight was a scuba dive off Beqa island featuring large bull sharks, and hundreds of other fish large and small, attracted by bait scattered by divemasters.
Although most of the other couples at the resort were newlyweds, it was a delightful place for us to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. On the evening of our anniversary, the staff set a dinner table for us off in the trees next to the water, serenaded us with guitars and ukeleles, and provided a special cake. We couldn't have
designed a more special evening.
So if you are looking for a romantic and quiet place to relax -- no disco, no exercise room, no carnival atmosphere -- this is your place.
