This was by far my favorite resort in Fiji. Unlike the big resorts like Westin or Outrigger...we got an exceptional value for the $180 US that we spent for our gorgeous, Fijian style Bure right on the beach. I loved the outdoor garden shower...taking a shower at night under the stars. We didn't see any bugs or animals inside our room, very clean and lovely. Our room was huge...a big closet, sink, mini fridge, large bed with two smaller cots and a sitting area. We had a private deck with chairs and hammock right on the beach.

The pool and resort area was very beautifully landscaped and taken care of. The restaurant was a bit expensive, but had a good variety and specials nightly. We enjoyed a side-by side massages (each with two women giving the massage...so a 4 handed massage) for only 50 Fijian (about $35 US). Everyone was extremly helpful and friendly. There are great activities all around Pacific Harbour (rafting ,zip lining, etc.)

This is an excellent choice for accomidations, family or romantic getaway. Many places we stayed in Fiji were very overpriced...this was perfect and reasonable for our budget.

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids aged 8 and 11) enjoyed our 3-night stay in Uprising very much. We had a beach front bure. It was very comfortable and spacious, even with an extra bed added for the 2nd child. The outside bathroom, though fun, was a touch inconvenient when it rained!
The staff was friendly and went out of their way to accommodate. We mentioned we had to leave very early for our rafting on the Navua and for our departure - and breakfast (fruit, cereal and bread) laden on trays were handed to us each night before!!
We also tried out the jet ski, tube rides and snorkelling on offer - all good fun and at reasonable rates.
We had dinner at the restaurant on all three nights - the menu was fairly limited but the quality of the food was acceptable.
We had stayed at Pacific Harbour for the activities (rafting and zip wire) and had accepted that it was on the wet side of the island (and indeed it rained heavily one day and cloudy/drizzling on another). We were very glad to have done so and experienced the genuine friendliness of the fijians - quite a contrast to Plantation Island that we moved on to after Uprising!

My family of 5 stayed in 2 of the ocean front bures for 2 nights 8/07.
This is a quaint place and lived up to the previous reviews.
Activities; Despite the rain, our teenagers had a blast spending hours jet skiing and banana boating. The staff was fantastic taking them out on rides despite the weather.
Warning - Pacific Harbour is somewhat of a wasteland. The cultural center had very few open stores. The planned community was obviously a failure. It is good for the scuba or rafting trips but don't expect anything else.
Room: tropical and large. Taking an evening shower outside gazing at the stars was fantastic. Don't miss it.
Food: very good. One daughter is a vegetarian and had plenty of options. Joe made the best margarita I have ever had ( I live in Southern California so have tried many).
Service: excellent although it might feel a little uncomfortable as there are 10 Fijians "employees' to each guest.
Americans will find this an amazing value!
If we head back to Fiji we will definitely stop by here again.

We've just come back from a 10 night stay at the Uprising. We found the resort to be really pretty and the rooms were impressive - kind of quirky, spacious and new. There are a lot of activities at your fingter tips however the organised activities were lacking - such as the theme nights, hash runs & party nights in suva etc which were an attraction for the group I was travelling with. Out of the 10 nights there, only one night had an activity being a firedance and bon fire - sounds fun but unfortunately it was pretty lame. That said though, you make your own fun - Horse riding, horse boarding and the jet ski tour were awesome and absoloute highlights!

Another reason we went was for the surfing - whilst promoted on the site, it turns out surfing wasn't really an option. It costs about $470fj to hire the boat needed to take you to the local break which was about 1.5hrs away. You're better off staying on one of the surf resorts on the islands.

The Uprising has a funky bar however it was surprisingly dead when we were there - except for a night here or there when the bar became over run with locals... at times this was a little intimidating and the paying guests couldn't get near the pool tables. Food at the bar was a bit hit and miss - we had some good meals but when you ordered the same thing the next day it tasted and looked totally different.

A couple of us got a massage when we were there - Never again! It was the worst massage in my life! Cheap oil that stunk and burnt your skin, 3 girls massaging you at once with absoloutely no technique made the whole experience kind of confusing, the massage table cut into your throat and made your eyes water and there were about 10 loud fijians hanging out around the activities shed where the massage was being done. Despites asking that my legs and feet don't get massaged they ended up slobbered in oil. I would pay $50 to not go through that again!

The Pearl is a 5 star resort just 2kms down the beach and very cool & stylish - if you are staying around this area, check it out. It's a relaxing way to spend and arvo drinking cocktails and indulging in great food. We went there for dinner nearly every night.

All in all we had a great stay once we adjusted our expectations and for what you get, it's great value for money!

Overall a nice stay. The pros- beautiful grounds, private beach, new rooms. The cons- outdoor shower not good when it rains, you have to walk outside the room to the bathroom, not many activities going on when I was there. This place gets an 'A' for orginality and 'C' for functionality. It is beautiful and relaxing and very good value for money. You can walk about 10 minutes to the Arts Village and get food and souveniers. The 2.5 hour cab ride is grueling after a long flight and cost $140FJ. I accidentally locked myself out of the room and it seemed to be a production to get me back in. It was not well lit at night and didn't want to leave my room for fear of attack from a bug. Fiji looks like Hawaii, but it much more primitive and a little difficult to handle for your average American.
