The staff here were fantastic & couldn't do enough for us. Location was perfect for us as we wanted to do tours on the rivers & area between Sigatoka & Pacific Harbour. If you're looking for time &/or tours out to the islands, then maybe look at something closer to Nadi. Great place to stay as it is smaller than some of the other hotels which allows for that more personal touch. Ok for families but no kids clubs or anything. Girls at reception will do anything for you - book tours & very informative. Recommend staying here & would definitely come back to stay again! Thank you to all for a fantastic stay! Oh did I mention the food was delicious!! Trina & Kate.

My wife and I recently spent a very relaxing week here and could not have been happier with the room, the location and most importantly the service. All of the staff treat you as one of their family and will be greeting you by name within minutes of checking in and will be singing goodbye and sharing hugs with you as you leave. I have never had a hotel experience quite like it.

We were lucky enough to receive an upgrade to the honeymoon suite, which has a fantastic double balcony overlooking the pool as well as providing uninterrupted views of the Coral Coast shoreline. Amenities in the room are simple but clean and serviceable and definitely good value for money given the price of a room.

The in house restaurant was also a real surprise, offering excellent meals at very reasonable rates. The Mahi-Mahi dishes were some of the best seafood dishes that I have tried and the Chef's Curries were beautifully presented and tasty to boot.

Don't be tempted by the expensive resorts nearby, Bedarra will provide with a much more intimate experience for a fraction of the cost.

Room Tip: The three rooms (17,18 and 19)located above the spa offer the best views.

our family of 4 have just returned from a week long stay at the fantastic Bedarra Beach inn. We had the best time. it was the ideal place to stay for a family, the staff were very accomadating and friendly and the restaurant meals were lovely. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff during our stay. I would definately recommend this hotel , and have already done so to family and friends.
Thankyou again to the staff.

An ideal place to stay apart from a disappointing restaurant experience where on our last night we were keen to try the local Lovo (food smoked/cooked in the ground) with the menu describing a variety of sumptuous dishes and local delicacies. What was served up was very disappointing. Scrappy tasteless vegetables, muscles dried out/rubbery and virtually inedible, tough meat and fish covered with wishy washy gravy. Very small serve which didn't matter as struggled to get through it anyway. A let down where we hoped our last night on the coral coast was to be a memorable one.

My husband and I just returned from 7 nights at BBI. Overall it was a really nice, relaxing vacation. Here are the pros and cons we found:

Pros:

-right on the beach in a quiet area

-live music every night from 5-10pm... a bunch of Fijian guys with lovely voices- definitely one of our highlights. My husband brought along his guitar and jammed with them several times, which he loved doing

-the restaurant served a wide variety of delicious food (tip: try the banana fritters and ice cream dessert... it's on the kids menu, so you wouldn't normally see it unless you're traveling with kids)

-room was quite large and comfortable. Same with the bathroom.

-snorkeling and ocean-kayak gear free to use. There are only 2 kayaks for the whole hotel though, so make sure you book it at the front desk. We didn't find this to be a problem.

-small and personal. The staff learned our names quickly, and we got to know them, as well as pretty much all the other hotel guests. Made it feel more family-like. I'm sure you could just stick to yourself too, if you wanted to.

-BBI spa was really nice, and had reasonable prices. We got a coupon for a free 10-min foot "ritual," which was great (too short, though ;) ). We didn't know how nice it was inside the spa until we went for that foot rub, but the views are beautiful, the spa girls are friendly, and it's clean.

Cons:
-1.5 hour drive from the Nadi airport on rough roads that were probably paved ages ago. Not good for someone like me with a lot of motion sickness... I puked before arriving

-not a lot to do in the immediate area unless you hire a car or taxi... chilling by the pool and beach is wonderful, but gets old quickly. There are tours you can go on, but...

-we were expecting the tours to be Thailand-priced (for some reason... I guess b/c of our last holiday), but they ranged in price from about $150-$450 Fijian dollars, which we thought was a LOT based on what you're getting, so we opted not to do any.

-not a lot to do at the hotel... again, it WAS nice to just relax, but we were bored, especially in the evenings. They have beautiful live music and a bar, but we didn't just want to sit around and drink for hours every night. We would definitely recommend BBI to improve this by creating a games room with ping pong, shuffle board, air hockey, etc, as well as have movie nights (no TVs in the rooms, so this would be good).

-not a lot of restaurant options in the area... while the BBI restaurant (Ebb Tide Cafe) was delicious, we were after a bit more variety in the area, but there were only about 3 other places to choose from: Casablanca looked dodgy, Le Cafe was so-so (we had dinner there one night), and the Outrigger Resort restaurants looked really nice, but were quite expensive, so we gave them a miss

-on the food theme, there was nowhere really to buy snacks in the area. You know how it is when you're hungry, but not enough for a full meal? Well, we had plenty of those times. There's a corner store at the end of the street, but it was very poorly stocked, and had mainly chips and crackers which were from the Philippines (unfamiliar brands to us). You could also take a taxi or bus into town (Sigatoga- 10km away) and shop at the bigger grocery store there which had cheaper prices, but also not a ton of selection. Had we known, we'd have packed granola bars, trail mix, muffins, etc. Careful though, b/c you're not allowed to bring a lot of things through customs at the airport (I had 2 apples confiscated there upon arrival)... but be sure to declare stuff as they'll fine you otherwise.

-bed was quite hard. It was fine for me, but my husband got a really sore back from it, so the last couple nights he borrowed two deck chair mattresses from the pool area and put them under the sheet... he looked like Princess and the Pea, but it did the trick.

-cleaning staff was VERY loud outside our room early each morning. Just talking, laughing, etc... nothing offensive, but annoying when you want to sleep in past 8am.

-all the rooms are non-smoking, which is great, but the lady next to us enjoyed many a cigarette on her balcony, which stunk up our room as we liked to keep our sliding door open for fresh air. If this bothers you, request to NOT be put beside smokers

-cleanliness was pretty good, but our room's tile floor felt a bit oily after its daily mopping (even when it was dry). The bed sheets were replaced daily, but could have smelled a bit fresher.

Overall, we would recommend BBI, especially if you are coming with your family, or want to hold a family reunion, conference, or wedding (not sure if they do those), as the place has a small, personal feel to it, so you wouldn't feel over-run with other guests.

Special shout-out to Betta and Penna for their lovely service and hospitality. :)

Room Tip: Most top floor rooms have ocean views... bottom floor rooms don't.

This was our first trip to Fiji and we are so glad we stayed at Bedarra! The staff was so accommodating from the moment we arrived. We arrived from the U.S. very early in the morning and they gave us a room to relax in until our deluxe room was ready. The staff treated us like family. They learned our names quickly and were very gracious. Excellent customer service all around! They even sang to us on our last night.

The room was spacious and clean. My only complaint about the entire stay was the mold in the shower. I imagine it is difficult to keep mold away in such a humid place, but I would guess a little bleach water would take care of it. Other than that, they did a great job at keeping our room clean, as well as the entire property. The pool and property really are as clean and beautiful as the pictures on their website.

The property was in the perfect location. It was near the end of a quiet road, and was within seconds of the beach. They provided us with beach towels, snorkel gear, and sea kayaks to use. It was within a few-minutes' taxi ride of several local attractions, with the Ecopark being within walking distance. If you go on the waterfall hike, try to go on a Sunday. Business is not usually conducted on Sundays, and we found we had the entire waterfall to ourselves. We were glad we stayed near Sigatoka because it was right in between Nadi and Suva, two of the major cities. We easily rented a car and drove to both.

Most complaints I had read about Fiji, in general, were about the food. We did not have any complaints at Bedarra. We found the food to be just as reasonably priced as food in the U.S. and we never had a bad meal. Again, the cook and wait staff were very accommodating.

The atmosphere, in general, was comfortable and fun. There was a live band that played nightly, and the other guests, as well as the staff, all seemed like family. We only used the spa on our last day and wished we had used it more. It was very professional, reasonably priced, and the girls did a great job.

All in all, a great first trip to Fiji. We can't wait to go back!
