My bf and I were traveling solo to Beqa Lagoon and I was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews about big dive groups at the resort. But our group of 22 divers also traveled in small clusters and soon became a large group of friends who dined and dived together.
As for the resort, Mark and Poldi(na) did a fantastic job in making everyone feel very welcome. Their stories about their travels were amazing and it was very nice that they shared them with guests each night at dinner.
As far as the beachfront bures, we started out in bure 7 then switched to 4. All that I can say is that beachfront bures are not created equal. Request rooms 1-6. Those are the nicest ones. Seven was larger, but the furniture was older and the garden layout was not as beautiful.
The dive staff was very competent - a far cry from my last trip to Taveuni - and took us to very beautiful and manageable dive sites.
The shark dive was one of the most amazing dives I ever experienced. The sharks were so close. But I never felt any fear or concern. The dive masters knew how to corral the sharks and keep them happy - thus, not hungry.
The staff was really sweet and almost invisible. They turned down the beds and lit candles while guests were eating dinner. They were all very friendly, as is the norm in Fiji.
We did not do any of the tours. We walked to the waterfall by ourselves. And we skipped the school visit. But, as recommended, we brought pencils for the school children and sent them on with others from our group.
In all, the stay was relaxing, exciting, invigorating and memorable.
