I adore this place! After seeing some mixed reviews, I was a bit uncertain as to what I would find, but my expectations were far exceeded.
Facilities: the bures are lovely with an exotic ambiance. The main house and pool have an intimate and comfortable but luxurious feel to them. Optional meals are communal in the main house (lots of young honeymooning kiwis & aussies) and are a good value.
Location: right on the water so you can easily go for long walks on the beach, kayaking (they have 2 on site for free usage), or you can just stand in the water at high tide as the baby reef sharks swim around your ankles. Though the staff will happily call a taxi for you, the location can feel a bit isolated, so if you want to get out and about, I'd recommend getting a rental car for your stay.
The staff: Maz, Thomas, & Saraty were wonderful, going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. So lovely & friendly. Thomas even led an informal kava ceremony.
This isn't a big flashy resort, so if you arrive with that expectation, you might be disappointed. However, after "borrowing" the pools at some of the more upscale places along the Coral Coast and in Denarau, I found myself appreciating the DeVos even more. Its small intimate size and communal feel provides privacy and a get-away feel while still getting a more authentic Fijian experience.
I would absolutely stay there again.
