Just returned from our second visit to Turtle Island.. We didn't think it possible but the second time was even more enjoyable then the first!! This is truly a place that is an experience not just a vacation. You are made to feel at "home" on the island by the staff as well as the other guests. The interactions of the staff and guests complete a feeling of family and friends are made that can last long after leaving this pacific paradise.
The general manager Alex has done an outstanding job empowering the staff to guide the guests through their journey into the culture and simplicity of the Fijian lifestyle. The environment created by Richard Evanson is truly unique in the world.
The first time my wife and I went to Turtle was for our honeymoon 3 years ago. We were a little hesitant about the family style dining and the other guest interactions because we thought we would need more private time. We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised at how much we loved every aspect of the trip and had all the private time we wanted including dining on private beaches and breakfast in bed!!
I could go on for pages but it wouldn't change the fact that Turtle Island is a place to be experienced not just visited. No matter who you are or what you do in the real world you will lose yourself in this place. If you want to be spritzed with water and be "sir'd and mam'd" to death then this may not be the place for you. If; however, you love to be in touch with the culture of the people who are native to the places you go and you enjoy being greeted by literally every staff member by your first name all of whom have a sincere concern for how you are...well then my friend...Turtle Island will be your new HOME!!
