We spent a wonderful and amazing 7 nights at Palmlea Farms Lodge & Bures a few days ago (July 2013).
When we alighted from the airplane we were greeted by the lovely Julie who took us to our new home via a very comfortable and air conditioned four wheel drive.
Travelling with two young children (18 months and 4 years) can be tiring at best but we immediately felt the stresses dissolve breathing the refreshing clean Vanua Levu Fijian air.
When we arrived at Palmlea we were delighted to see the lovely main reception area/restaurant which showcased amazing views of the landscapes and ocean. Simply Magical.
We were greeted by the Palmlea family (the staff will soon become members of your extended family!) and offered refreshing coconut water and sugar cane and taken to our immaculate Bure.
The Bure itself is worth a mention as it was lovely and so well maintained - Joe's background in architecture truly shows in the design of this beautiful accommodation.
The grounds of Palmlea are beautiful, natural and offer plenty for everyone to explore and relax. There are many options for day trips and things to do around the resort too.
We spent our days relaxing by the pool (which is great for children), eating the amazing food (designed by Joe & Julie and cooked to perfection by Malti the Palmlea chef) and exploring the area.
Palmlea is one of those magical places that can be whatever you would like it to be - a remote get away to relax and unwind or a place where you can explore the breathtaking beauty of the Fijian landscape and culture. A special mention goes to Leone - our Dive Master - who took us on a great diving adventure and Tia the lovely young woman who was our nanny for the week and won our hearts and the hearts of our kids.
It was an absolute pleasure to get to know Joe and Julie and their dedicated Palmlea team. We loved every moment and we will be back!
