“Magical Experience”
Reviewed May 15, 2011

Words fail me as I try to describe our truly magical Fijian holiday a the BLBR. The excitement was building as we got closer on the Yasawa Flyer and saw all the other resorts along the way as the ferry island hopped to get to Nacula. Our first glimpse of the Resort did not disappoint us and the welcome song by the Staff started off a great holiday. Our first night saw us on the kava mat being welcomed the traditional way with a kava drink and then being serenaded with some Fijian songs as we had our first dinner, a lovo (food cooked over hot coals). After just our first day we already felt immersed in Fijian culture. During our stay we had many more opportunities to see and experience the culture with a meke (culture show) both at the Resort as a pre-dinner show and at the Village during our visit. Undoubtedly the highlight of the Village tour was a visit to the School and hearing the children sing. The children sang with so much enthusiasm and were so proud of themselves and their happy faces were a delight to see. There were so many other activities to do every day and the good thing was you could do as many as you wanted to or simply relax on the beach. The water was divine and you could swim or snorkel at both high or low tide. I enjoyed getting up each morning and having a pre-breakfast swim as the water stayed warm all the time. As a very basic swimmer I found that I could still snorkel and stay within my comfort level. We stayed in a beach front villa and I would certainly recommend booking one if you can. They are very spacious and comfortable and the outside showers have to be seen to be believed. Having our own hammock and beach chairs was also a bonus. Sitting on our porch looking at the incredible sunsets each evening was breathtaking. The food was amazing! So many choices for breakfast and lunch and a variety of different themes for the dinners each night. We also had the lobster dinner on the beach one night and I would recommend this as well. We were there over Easter and appreciated the seafood buffet on Good Friday and the little basket of chocolate eggs on our doorstep on Easter Sunday morning. A thoughtful touch by the managers Mel & Justin, who also organised a children's Easter Egg hunt and a grown-up's egg hunt which proved to be so much fun. We eagerly awaited the crab race we had heard so much about and we were not disappointed. We laughed and cheered as the crabs went every which way except past the finish line. Many reviews talk about the mosquitoes being a problem but neither of us were bitten once during our stay and the Aerogard was always readily available at the Bar or could be purchased at the Office. The Staff were all so friendly and always greeted us with a big smile and enthusiastic 'Bula'. Overall our stay at the BLBR was a very happy experience for us on a truly magical island and we have already booked our next stay in January.

Loved my time at Blue Lagoon Beach Resort. We stayed in the Beachfront Villa and I would suggest that it is worth staying in this room type to be able to have the private hammok and beach chairs as well as the water view from the room and directly out your door as you wake each morning. The rooms were not overly lavish, but were definatley comfortable.
The food on the island was fantastic - couldnt be faulted and was really great value. Staff were lovely. There was a lot to do on the island and one of the greatest activities was simply hanging out in the bar/restaurant and meeting your fellow travellers.
Although this resort caters to backpackers, it definately doesnt have a backpacker feel. I stayed 4 nights and it definately wasnt long enough.
Would like to try the sea plane next time!

Firstly a special mention to my new cousin Novel and all the band boys. We will be back soon, but not soon enough for my liking! The cave trip is a must and I would love to visit the caves again.

The highlight was waking up to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore, heading to breakfast to sample the delights of Coli's cooking then...a morning snorkel. There is something magical about little fishes swimming fearlessly around and seeming to welcome swimmers into the school.

My only disappointment was that it rained one afternoon so we missed out on the visit to the bakery, but that is all that went astray and instead I was able to meet some lifelong friends whom are much missed already.

Although two days have now passed since departure for home, I can still smell the ocean in my hair and am pining for the tropical warmth of my new home. Dont be afraid ofnthe heated air! Leave the luvres open on the windows at night for the breeze to flow through and you won't think about air con.


We will be back and hope to be able to wish Novel a proper happy birthday!

Wow .... absolutely amazing place. All the previous great reviews are spot on, as the BLBR is just the perfect true Fijian Island experience. This place has it all...great staff, excellent food, wonderful Bures with magic views all set in Paradise. The feel of the place is so relaxed thanks to the friendly and attentive staff. A special mention to both Tim and Karaline whom went out of their way to make our stay such a memorable experience. The snorkelling from out the front was just excellent and the futher out you venture just gets better and better. Our teenage kids enjoyed the very delicious and plentiful food and the feel of wearing no shoes for a week. They also loved seeing the cultural side with the Village visit and the beautiful singing of the school children. In summary, WE LOVED EVERYTHING !!!! The only negative is leaving......we'll be back !!!!

My husband and 3 young children spent 5 glorious nights at the resort. It is our 2nd time to visit and things have just gone from A+++ to A+++++! Mel, Justin and the staff are just as fanastic as ever. The children did not want to leave and neither did us parents! The resort is just as beautiful as before and the food...totally divine!

Looking forward to visiting again for a 3rd trip in the near future! Keep up the fantastic work Blue Lagoon...you truly are heaven on earth.

We stayed here in August 2010 as part of a 2 week stay on the Yasawa Islands, This hotel is the same as the Octopus, the same managment group we were told. The place has a very corporate feel and also a very European feel, Not fijian at all. The food was excellent here, always plenty of it and great standard. The staff when we were there were not as friendly as other resorts which were locally owned. Great beach location, Sandbar and plenty of room to escape the crowds. They offer daily activities if they get the minimum participants to attend, none actually ran when we were there. All in all not a bad place to stay.

We had an excellent stay at the brbl. We stayed in a garden villa and enjoyed the outdoor bathroom, surprisingly there weren't as many bugs as expected. The activities were also great but you weren't obliged to participate if you weren't in the mood. The food was also excellent!
