This place is truely amazing. The moment we stepped ashore we felt we were at some place special. Not one negative comment could we say about Castaway. Our children aged 4,9 and 11 did not want to come home. The resort was full but you felt like there was only a handful of people around. No big lines of people, no long waits for meals or drinks, beautiful friendly staff. Dive shop boys were excellent and good for a joke and laugh. Eddie the waiter sooo cute and friendly to chat to as was Mosie. Fee from the kids club was a big hit with my 11 year old son playing soccer most nights on the tennis courts. Could go on and on about Castaway. Great place will be back.

Stayed at the Beachcomber, had a sour taste about Fiji, almost wanted to skip the second half of my vacation and return home.
Then arrived at Castaway - Wow.
So beautiful. Great service. Wonderful staff. Amazing cuisine. Fantastic accommodations. Super scuba staff, boat, and equipment. Oh, and the hour long massage!
I just cant say enough. This is what I wanted my vacation to be and it was pure heaven!
And if you get enough of the beach and the sand, there is a pool surrounded by palms with plenty of lounge chairs and a bar that serves frozen drinks with umbrellas!

A week on Castaway with the children was my best family holiday ever. The children just loved the place and the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The bure was clean and well appointed, and the staff didn't mind that the kids turned it into chaos every day. There were insect screens on the windows and ceiling fans to keep the bures cool.
The layout and gardens are well-designed to maximise privacy as much as possible in the resort. Food was good, but do get the meal plan. Extras aren't cheap but you are on an island resort where everything has to be brought in. Drinking water is safe and actually quite nice, and there is a jug in the room fridge so you can provide your own cool drinks. Good idea to bring some wine as the wine list ain't cheap.
There is lots to do, from bush walks to stunning snorkelling just off the beach (ever better if you go on a snorkelling trip). The pool is great and there are lots of activities on the main beach. The kids club was a HUGE hit with the kids.
As a family holiday destination I cannot recommend Castaway highly enough - but book early as it is VERY popular.

  • Liked — Friendliness of the staff
  • Disliked — Not having enough time there
  • Tips/Secrets — Bring your own wine, lots of sunblock and some insect repellent for the evenings outdoors

Castaway is really a magical place. My partner and I stayed their with our 2 children (aged 9 and 16) for 10 days recently. As soon as you arrive, you instantly feel so relaxed. There is plenty to do or you can laze around the beach all day.
The food at Castaway is very good - buffet breakfast but al la carte for lunch and dinner and there are always specials at dinner - so you dont get sick of the food. The curries are particlarly good.
The staff are fabulous - very friendly and very welcoming particularly to the children.
Overall a wonderful place - once you get to Castaway you wont want to leave and when you do you will be planning your next visit.
