Wow, too many people appeared to have cancelled their travel plans to Fiji because of a coup that even the locals barely talked about. FIJI IS STILL SAFE, trust us...we were there when the coup started and everything was normal, but some advise to try to avoid Suva if you can. Nanuya Island Resort was everything we expected and more, honestly. The people are great, the accomadation was great and the atmosphere was just what we were after. Private, quiet, intimate and ideal. It's close to other resorts as well. At Nanuya guests consisted of mostly middle aged couples and the only backpackers were the day travelers that would trek into Nanuya Island Resort to get a taste of the incredible food, made fresh right before your eyes. The staff were all great, loved Remi and the rest of them. Fiona was very helpful on the internet when we booked and made our planning a lot easier. Just email the resort and Fiona will assist with any questions. We took the Yasawa flyer to Nanuya (4.5 hour boat ride) and the boat stopped at many other resorts so we enjoyed the scenery. My wife and I stayed in both the deluxe Beachfront Bure and the treetop Bure. Both were excellent, with toilets and showers...the treetop bure was smaller and sleeps two or three while the beach front is much larger in size and can accomodate 4 people. Activities include diving, hiking around the island, fishing, village visits...etc...We skipped out on the cave tour, but another couple staying at the resort said that it wasn't worth the price, and you have to swim under water to get to dark enclosed cave...with a lot of people (very unsafe). The beach at Nanuya was incredible, probably the best we've seen while in Fiji. The folks that run the resort are so friendly and happy, will do anything to help. This resort is next to Turtle Island so you can enjoy the same beauty as Turtle island, and pay a hell of a lot less here. On the way out we asked Fiona to book us a flight with Turtle airways back to Nadi. It cost $300 FJ per person one way, but it only took 30 mins. to get back as opposed to 4.5 hours. All transfers from the airport and resorts are easily arranged. Watch out for the taxi drivers they will most likely try to shaft you. Highly recommed this resort to all tourists, there is something here for everyone except the kids.
