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.
