“Peaceful, tranquil, perfect”
Reviewed July 15, 2011

Travelling to visit Labasa with the family, 2 children aged 5 and 3, and grandparents, we couldn't have wanted for a lovelier and warmer welcome than the one we received from hosts Julie and Joe, and their staff Malti and Una and Inoke and Ganesh. The views from the lodge and bure over the mangroves and lagoon out to Kia Island were beautiful, and great for watching birds as the sunset. We enjoyed kayaking at their private jetty, and swimming in the beautiful 25 metre lap pool. They arranged a great day trip into Labasa for the family, visiting the markets and town, Naag Madir Temple with a stop off for lunch at the historic Grand Eastern Hotel. The bures were beautiful, stylish, and used local materials in surprising ways- to great effect. It was a great place to stay to see a part of Fiji that is not on the usual tourist list. It was a great experience- highly recommend a visit!

I travelled with my Mother, Uncle & Sister for a family reunion. The reunion was fantastic but with all family events its always nice to have some 'down time" as well. We selected Palmlea because of its location - not far from Labasa township or airport & we loved the idea of staying at a resort that believes in sustainable tourism practises & organic living. Julie & Joe were the most amazing hosts - we felt so welcomed & at home, just like a part of their family. The resort was perfect & the right size for us - enough room to spread out & do your own thing with time to yourself. Rooms spacious, very clean & good design features. The food is AMAZING! Being part Fijian we are very fussy about Fijian & Indian cuisine & we were very impressed with everything we ate - from the taste to the presentation - impeccable. Definately recommend it and would come back again in a heartbeat.

We had five wonderful days at Palmlea Lodge. The owners, Joe and Julie are very friendley and will do their best to make you enjoy your stay with them.
You have good snorkling a boattrip away and several interesting places to go kayaking to. But mainly this is a place for relaxing.
Go there!

Palmlea Farms Lodge & Villa is a wonderful place with a soul, a corner of paradise, a peaceful retreat for the busy minds. Joe and Julie make all their guests feel special and the beautiful surroundings are a real delight. The Fijian staff is part of the experience too and the food is fantastic. Joe makes sure that the guests leave the dinner table with a big smile on their faces. It is an off the beaten track resort definitely worth a visit ! It is the best value for your dollars !

One week turned in three weeks, hanging out and enjoying the superb cuisine (taking a break from cooking on the boat), mornings in the lap pool, paddling the new kayaks up to the mangroves and river as well as taking their blue heeler named Tilly for afternoon walks to watch the sunset. Every day was an adventure. Days were spent fishing, hiking, snorkeling, bus trips to Savu Savu or the Waisali Rainforest Reserve or reading in the hammock under a shady mango tree. The snorkeling spots had great visibility with beautiful corals and a wide variety of colourful fish. Our hosts were exceptionally charming, helpful and entertaining with their stories, taking time to visit all their guests at each meal. What an idyllic celebration of our Pacific crossing - thank you again Joe and Julie!

My husband and I spent a fantastic seven day stay at Palmlea Lodge and apart from the friendliness of the owners and staff we could not speak more highly of it.The food was superb as was the service and attention to detail.As we were both somewhat stressed on arrival we were allowed to just "veg out". We spent our days swimming in the lovely lap pool, walks down to the ocean and just sitting there admiring the views, reading and sleeping - what more could one want?
We will certainly go back there and will inform our friends of its existence.
