Wish we were still there...Wonderful, Romantic, Relaxing holiday with that real, Friendly Fijian experience. We highly recommend the Tropica Island Resort and especially the spacious, comfortable Bure accommodation. Loved the Fijian style, huge, comfortable bed, the outdoor shower (there's an indoor one too), swing on the porch, hammocks between the palm trees and sun-beds on the grass by the beach & by the infinity pool at the restaurant.
Set in a tropical paradise where everywhere you look is a photo opportunity. You can do as much or as little as you want. Each day free activities like; boules on the beach, coconut collecting & tasting, volleyball and palm leaf weaving are organised. You can also choose to snorkel, kayak and sail for free. Its good to have something to read for those relaxing hammock moments.
Other activities are also organised each day (at varied costs - You can pay for these at the end on you hotel bill so don't need to carry extra cash). These include:- snorkelling around Honeymoon Island, Fishing, a visit to Cloud Nine and a Trip to the Local Village. There was a newsletter in our Bure each evening and a daily noticeboard letting you know what was on offer for the day.
You need to organise how you are getting to the island beforehand as you may need to book transport. Our plane arrived without enough time to catch the last ferry from Port Denaru. After a frantic phone call to the resort it was all sorted Thanks to Kara (One of the reservations team at the resort) who organised ours for us.
The staff made our stay memorable. They are so very warm and welcoming. They were also very versatile. One minute they're picking people up in the boat or organising daily activities, maintaining the grounds and then playing guitar and/or ukelele and singing traditional Fijian songs with beautiful harmonies whilst we ate dinner in the restaurant each night. Our rooms were always immaculate and I loved the thoughtful touches with fresh flowers on the bed each day. Lunches and dinners were delicious and for breakfast I preferred the cooked or light breakfast (coconut pancakes-Yum!!) and the fresh fruit.
Finally, we had a complimentary foot treatment which was lovely. Because this was so good I decided to spend a little extra on a head neck and shoulders/back massage. I have to say it was the very BEST massage I have EVER had. Thank You, Liti! You are an angel...I floated out of the spa afterwards.
Bula Vinaka Tropica!
