Well run resort with good food and accomodation. I stayed in the 4 bed dorm with no ac. If ac is important to you try to get the 8 bed one. Snorkeling off the beach is fantastic. Staff is friendly. Dont miss the mtn peak hike, which was the highlight of my stay.

Arriving delayed at Nadi, we expected our boat to Waya to have left us. However, we found the lack of support from Octopus' booking agency to be very disappointing. Calling them just led us to a bureau (probably in the USA) who shoved no understanding, and had no idea how to assist us. Calling the resort proved difficult, and the answer we eventually got was more or less the same: "wait until the next boat leaves tomorrow, we have no idea how to help you...". Since our stay was booked, we had confirmed it, and were arriving with a delayed scheduled international flight, Octopus could easily have tried to meet us at the airport or answer a little more properly on the phone to explain our options at least. That would have been courteous of them.

However, after attentive assistance from a helpful lady at the airport, we managed to charter a boat from two local heros. This eventually became one of the absolute highlights during our entire journey! A small open boat with an outboard engine and oars if need be, across relatively large stretches of open water, during thunder and (a lot of) rain brought us safe to the resort after about 2,5 hours to the manager's great surprise. On the way we were told much about the life by and in the water, were showed where "Cast Away" had been filmed, and had to stop and ask for the way to Octopus in a village as well, picking up another (unknown) captain, who took over the whole operation. Friendly, solution oriented people, and flexibility became our rescue so to speak. Afterwards we would not have missed this experience, even if our arrival was disappointing to begin with.

The resort itself proved to live up to our expectations, and surpass them. We got a nice bure, very good service from the manager as soon as we arrived, and spent relaxing days and nights in warm water and air, on sandy beaches and under palms, with good food and drinks in addition. Bring a snorkel! A trip to the village on the opposite side of the hills was also very rewarding, as was a big game fishing trip we choose to try out. Catching our own lunch (and some more people's) was fun! Besides we (again) got far out with a small boat in heavy warm rain (again).

Leaving was a little confused as was arriving, but we finally got on board the "Magic" with our luggage and spent our last night in Fiji close to the airport.

We almost didn't stay at Octopus after a lot of confusion and problems with the booking and payment system. When we finally arrived at Octopus I was so glad that the booking had worked out because it was our favourite three days in a 18 day holiday.
The staff were outstanding - incredibly welcoming, friendly and helpful beyond all expectation. One staff member lent us his children's shoes for the mountain hike!
Everyday has different activities that will keep you busy with new experiences ... The mountain hike was difficult but so amazing once we reached the top of the granite dome that overlooks the islands.
We stayed in a bungalow with shared bathroom. The room was small but clean and set in a beautiful garden cluster connected with decking. Felt like a tropical paradise.
I was skeptical about the meal plan ... But found it very good value for money compared to eating in restaurants in Denarau. And it was Totoka! Delicious!
Vinaka vaka levu Octopus!

We recently stayed at Octopus Resort in Poppy 3 for 6 nights on 12 November. Our transfer to and from the the island was on the resort boat the Magic, the journey to the resort was on calm seas and was just perfect. The journey on the way back was on moderate to rough seas. So was very bumpy as you can imagine. I take my hat off to the captain, he tried so hard to skip through the waves and did very well. Although I was worried, I never at any time felt I was in danger. Even after all of that I would still choose the Magic over the bigger commerical boats anyday.

The island, accommodation and staff WOW. Was probably our best overseas holiday yet. Our room was very comfortable and the views to die for. Loved having my own private sun lounges right outside our room. The snorkelling was brilliant and right off the beach. What I loved about it you could do a lot or not very much at all. The choice is yours.

The Octopus Olympics was such a great laugh and enjoyed sitting with different people each night for dinner. You get to meet a lot of people and hear lots of interesting stories.

We can't wait to go back again.

Well done Octopus you have a tremendous product there.

I've just returned from Octopus and will DEFINITELY be back.

As a backpacker, the resort provides the best deal you'll find in Fiji. The dorm rooms were a lot better than expected and the meals were good. I'm vegetarian which wasn't an issue at all.

The breakfast buffet is great - pretty standard for Fiji with lots of fruit... the omlette station was a bonus! Lunch is off a set menu and is quick to come out because a lot is pre-prepared.

Dinners had a lot of variation - an Indian night, BBQ, Fijian Meke night and general seafood. I had options for as a vego.
The few annoying things (boat transfer, weather) are unavoidable obviously. The cost is super annoying, be aware of the price for transfers.

I thought their activities were really good - visiting the Kindy at the village especially.

Remember to go with an open mind. I would probably have had a very different experience if I was paying a lot of money and staying in one of the fancier places.

This is Fiji so relax! Forget about punctuality.

Room Tip: Bungalow rooms are a lot more money than the dorms (and share the dorm bathrooms), but not air conditioned (the dorms are). If you're not used to humidity, you probably need A/C.
