This is a lovely clean and tidy small resort, 25 bures in all. So it is not crowded at any time. You are right on the lagoon, which is absolutely fine to snorkel at high/mid tides. You are just around the corner (west) from Namaku village and about 15 - 20 mins walk from Hideaway Resort (east).
Buses or minivans are relatively easy to flag down in either direction. Taxi is around $25 one way to Sigatoka, bus is $1.90 ish! Pacific Harbour is worth a visit, take the Suva Express bus (it will stop at the resort entrance if you flag it - and if it has vacant seats) this trip is about 1 hour one way, and you get off at the Pearl resort. Pacific Harbour shopping centre is on the opposite side of the road and has a number of restaurants, souvenir shops, supermarket and atm.

We had a wonderful week at TAMBUA SANDS. The single bures on the beach are the best. The garden bures are close to the road. The staff are terrific, the location is great, the bures are clean and comfortable, the food is good. We would return to TAMBUA SANDS in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: choose the single beachfront bures. for a special treat there are 2 refurbished beachfont bures with plunge pools but the pools are not very private.

We really didn't know what we were getting in to when booking for Fiji, it far surpassed our expectations on what we thought we needed to just what we needed. The burrs are very cute,quaint, clean and quiet. Tambua offers complimentary kayaks to take out and explore the coral reef area where the waves break out about 100 yards. So no need to worry about drifting off into the ocean, safe for even the most skeptic kayakers. Yes, complimentary breakfast with freshly baked bread, a variety of fruit,fresh juice and coffee. The staff is exceptionally helpful and friendly. If you love a isolated feel, with miles of untouched beaches with beautiful shells, with a star show nightly that you feel you can reach out and touch this is the place for you. We would love to go back! Thank you Tambua Sands!

Fantastic value for your dollar, we really loved it and the staff were fantastic. Continental Breakfast was included and whilst this was good the inclusion of pastries and perhaps some eggs would have made it fantastic.
All the staff went that extra mile to make sure you enjoyed yourself and made you feel extremely welcome. The amenities included kayaks and organised walks, good to keep off the weght. The beach Bura was very clean and comfortable and almost on the beach. Terrific spot.

Room Tip: try for a single beach bura, we stayed at no.5.

The staff are lovely and just so friendly. The meals were very nice and lots of choices. the bures were a little dated but clean and tidy. There are two tour operators at Tambua sands and both are very helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Well worth the extra few dollars for a beach front bure
