We are currently renting a villa in Pacific Harbour for a month and have made Uprising our go to and favourite place to be. Will def stay there when we return on our next visit.
Had a wonderful massage which cost $27.50 AUD. They were re-thatchingthe massage hut (which is next to the beach) so i got to check out one of the thatched bures where they tempoarily relocated their massage services). Have had numerous meals there at all times of the day - always great. Coffee is the best I've had in Fiji thus far.. Staff wonderful , even when I managed to drop a couple of latte glass cups. The restaurant area is about 30 metres from and overlooks the beach. Awesome views, lovely breezes and sooo relaxing..

We spent night 2&3 of our honeymoon at the uprising and it was excellent. Knowing that we were on honeymoon, they gave us their honeymoon package included with the room. We got an upgraded chalet, a free 3 course meal, a free bottle of something sparkling, and a free 1hr massage each. Absolutely spot on. The is a backpackers hostel here as well, but the villas are absolutely excellent and worth the upgrade if you can afford it. They also arranged for me to go shark diving with beqa adventure divers in pacific harbour, I just told them I wanted to go and they did the rest. Again, staff were excellent, food was well priced and nice to eat, beer was cheap (for Fiji).

Bula & Congratulations to you Seanmor
We are happy that you have enjoyed very special honeymoon holiday at Uprising. Just to provide a little information on our journey, Uprising was opened in 2007, with two styles of accommodation; these were the shared/dormitory facilities and classic bures/private facilities. In 2010 the Commodores Villas, were opened as an addition to the range of accommodation styles available at Uprising. These villas now make up our deluxe range rooms, allowing us to cater to travellers such as yourself, offering more privacy, and comforts right on the beach, while on holiday. Once again we are very happy you enjoyed your time within the resort and you enjoyed the villa. We are also happy your enjoyed your day diving with Beqa Adventure Divers. It was our pleasure providing assistance to you while booking this.
Once again a big Vinaka vakalevu for taking time to review Uprising. We look forward to seeing you very soon, and from Everyone at Uprising, congratulations once again.

I think Uprising has something to offer many a traveller. It seems its great for families, great for a romantic holiday and great for solo travellers alike. We came on a romantic holiday but found it fun meeting other travellers who were travelling solo as we're very sociable people. The resort offers backpacker lodging as well as well as luxurious individual bures (suites) but the two a very separated so you don't have to worry about noisy backpackers if you're there for a romantic getaway.
Our bure was really spacious and as well as a completely equipped bathroom there was a big outdoor rain-shower which was the best part. There was a TV that rotated in the wall between the bedroom and living area (loved that too!). The only problem is getting to the resort, which is quite an expensive taxy ride but compared to more expensive resorts near the airport it was still worth it (plus we found an awesome deal on the internet).
The food could be a little slow at times but it was good and not expensive. We enjoyed the fijian dinner night - worth buying in and trying, and the buffet breakfast included in our stay was good, although wish there were eggs included. There is also a little grocery store about a 20min walk away so you're not stranded. All the employees were extremely friendly and accommodating and I was impressed that the waitresses new us by name very quickly.
The pineapple smashing competition was great fun and on the weekend there was a large game of volleyball going on. We also got massages which were reasonably priced and very relaxing by the in-house masseuse. Definitely a relaxing and enjoyable getaway, but check the weather first - I think we came in the rainy season!

Room Tip: We had a bure with outdoor shower, a beach view would've been best but the garden bures were not...

This was a great location with very nice rooms, excellent food, and friendly staff. We had our own bure w/outdoor shower and the staff helped us book a fun river village visit. Breakfast was included, which is always nice and the rooms are very spacious.

After working endlessly for 12 months, i decided to take a break and travel with Feejee Experience around Viti Levu. On the second day we stayed at Uprising Resort, the staff were really friendly(bless them) and the food you gotta try the Tex Mex Pizza, its wonderful...what got to me was the land scaping/area, there is not one dirt on the ground and the flowers/plants are beautiful.
Alfie you are blessed with running such a beautiful place..

We had high hopes for Uprising after our friends stayed here in July. It seems a lot can change in a month.

- There is no free wi-fi. It has been replaced by Global Gossip a few weeks ago and costs a fortune. Pacific Harbour has an internet shop at $3 an hour which is better than the $2.50 for 15 minutes which Uprising charge. At the time of writing, Hostels.com still said they had free wi-fi and it was one of the reasons we came here. No apology or complimentary time was given. They wanted to charge me a dollar to print one page out.

- The breakfast is good...when it turns up. They are constantly running out of food and crockery. No-one seems to keep an eye on when things run low, meaning we had to ask several times for fruit, cups, more bread, etc. Also, the toaster is a deathtrap - you'll know what I mean when you see it. My girlfriend burnt her finger badly on it and asked for ice - it was given without question, suggesting that it is a fairly common request....

- Laundry is $16. This is 3 times the price of Pacific Harbour's laundrette for a bag.

- Food in general is variable. The curry was good, but the samosa/spring roll plate was average and the wedges were awful. Suggest eating in the harbour.

- The dorm beds are comfortable but it is a large dorm so take earplugs and be prepared for drunk people coming in at all hours (probably the same in all large dorms the world over). Dorm room is cleaned daily, but the showers are clearly not.

- Don't book tours here - they are much cheaper in Pacific Harbour.

- Water is $8 a bottle for 1.5l which is utterly insane. It costs $2.70 in the supermarket at the harbour.

All in all, it isn't a particularly friendly place to stay and the company wants to gouge every last cent from you. We moved to a double room in Tsulu for our last night and paid $10 than two dorm beds in Uprising. No breakfast, but no chance of burning your hand off either.

I'd avoid this place. It's obviously riding its previous success as the "upmarket" kid in town, but the plaudits have clearly gone to its head and now aims to fleece tourists as much as possible.

Bula Vinaka Rob,

Thank you for taking the time to review Uprising, your feedback is important to us. We sincerely regret to hear that the resort did not meet your expectations on a number of levels. Your points are understandable, and I would like to assure you that these points are valued.

You are right, we no longer have free wi-fi. This is quite common throughout Fiji and many hotels within our rating provide the internet services through a 3rd party. We have done our best to ensure our suppliers have been updated regarding this recent change and apologize you were not informed prior to your arrival. We are glad however that you were able to source a cheaper service within the Arts Village and one that was satisfactory and convenient to you, during your stay with us.

I am most concerned to hear about your experience at breakfast and have shared your comments with my chefs and supervisors. I thank you for bringing to our attention your concerns regarding our toaster and have instructed our supervisors to be more attentive and assist guests with this toaster as it is not of the domestic sort. We appreciate your positive comments regarding the curries as this is one of our more popular dishes. Vinaka.

With regards to our laundry service, this is provided on a per load basis both wash and dry, and not by item of clothing, which many resorts currently offer. This is the most affordable way to offer this 3rd party service to our guests through the resort, saving them the time and effort of going to the laundry themselves.

Our Dorm is quite popular and we receive a lot of positive feedback regarding this facility. It is disappointing to read about the bathrooms in your review. These are cleaned and refreshed daily however we are reviewing current procedures to ensure a better service for our guests, in a facility that is quite busy on a daily ongoing basis, given the nature of the dorm facility.

The Tours purchased through a hotel are almost always identical in price to the rates offered direct from the tour operator, unless the tour company was, at the time of your booking, offering a special or offered yourself a special that wasn’t made aware to the resort. Taking tour bookings is a helpful way to ensure our guests have access to excellent day activities not only within the resort but also within the greater area. The tour operators promote their services through the resort to ensure our guests have access to them and by agreement in principle, ensure the prices provided by the resort remain the same as their current offerings.

Yes we do offer Fiji Water, Fiji’s Internationally recognized bottled water, for $8.00 for a 1.5l bottle in our bar and restaurant. We pay more to have this premium product available to our guests to consume and enjoy in a beachside and lush garden setting.

Once again, we apologize for the resort not meeting your expectations. We market ourselves within the affordable & midrange hotel ratings and it is through market trends that we establish the price for our services. We have maintained our prices for the last two and a half years and have no immediate plans of increasing these, always trying to ensure we continue to remain within affordable reach.

Should you ever be in Fiji again, I hope that you will contact us, and we hope to be able to be given the opportunity to offer you a Fijian beachside resort experience that will meet your expectations.

Once again, Vinaka Vaka Levu.

My friend and I stayed here for a week in the mini dorm. I would recommend asking for the mini dorm versus the dormitory it is much smaller and you will have less roomates. The people at the resort were friendly. The resort is pretty secluded though, you can walk down the road a bit if you want other restaurant options but there was no nightlife. I would suggest renting a car if you want to find entertainment or bars.
