Just returned from the most positive trip of our lives to Beqa Resort.
Hats off to everybody working here as that what makes it so outstanding.
From the Dive Masters to the room staff this place is just a 10 in friendliness.
And the best part is they really mean it!
Thank You from Scottsdale and Bula as soon as possible.

What a great vacation! This island/resort offers lots of relaxation, adventure, friendly faces, and culture. From day one, right after they welcome you to the island with Fijian song the staff gets to know you by name. And the dives were outstanding. As a beginner, all the dive masters were patient and went as slow and you needed. The grounds were beautiful as well as the bures. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Definitely the beach front is the way to go!!

This resort is primarily for scuba divers, but non divers will enjoy it as well. I traveled with my daughter, a diver. The resort is on Beqa Island, a 45 minute boat ride from the main island of Fiji. The staff is wonderful, they sing you ashore when you arrive to great fanfare. The bures (cottages) are clean and well appointed, complete with hammocks and plunge pools. The snorkeling right off shore is spectacular. The resort has a VERY reasonable spa. We visited nearby villages, and the resort provides entertainment nightly. My daughter had nothing but good things to say about the dive crew. The food is AMAZING!! The pool and patio area is situated to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. All in all a wonderful resort!

We spent a week at Beqa Lagoon Resort in late November with a scuba diving group, but just taking the opportunity to post a review. What makes a great vacation? A gorgeous spot like Beqa Lagoon, the finest food you'll ever eat and a great people around you. Everyone at the resort could not have been kinder, more welcoming or more accommodating. How often do you shed a tear as you sail away from a spot while casting flowers in the water in hopes you will someday return?

The accommodations are beautiful, clean and serene; the culture a treat to learn about; and the cuisine superb. The diving is also a treat. With more than 100 dives under my weight belt, this was my first time diving the Pacific, and enjoyed the new (to me) varieties of fish and creatures you'll see if you go. And do go. And don't miss the shark dive; it will provide bragging rights for years to come.

I owe a particular debt of gratitude to a young lady at the front desk who did me a tremendous favor in an hour of need, and I hope to repay it with a box now making its way to the resort with cheater glasses for residents of a nearby village who seemed to need them. When you pack your bags, throw in school supplies you can donate to school children at another nearby village. The more unique, the better.

Thank you and bula.

This was my fifth visit to Beqa Lagoon Resort. So I obviously like it and have good memories that will bias my experience. I will work to counter that. The resort is showing it's age in some areas of the bures. The location is still awesome, the resort staff are wonderful. The food is perfect. The massage I had was very good.

I'm not sure what more someone could ask for.. Beqa Lagoon is a resort as well as an experience. The current managers are doing a fine job.

Room Tip: Spending more for a beach front bure is well worth it.

We are avid divers and have traveled all over the world. We've experienced liveaboards, sea side cottages, VRBO and all inclusives. We truly enjoyed our stay at this resort and found the management and staff excellent and very attentive to our needs. The dive operation was well equipped and staffed and we always felt that we were in very competent hands. We especially appreciated that the "dive masters" and crew were Fijians. This is in stark contrast to a second resort where we stayed the following week.

The only disappointment was the lack of fish. Honestly, they were eerily absent. There were tons of little clown fish, parrotfishes, wrasse and other small reef fish. And the macro was awesome. But there were no predator fish of any abundance like snappers, barracuda, jacks, or eels. Also, over a two week stretch and approximately 70 hours between us underwater (including night dives) we never came across a lobster. Now this may not be a big deal to some travelers, but based upon this observation as well as conversations with other travelers and locals, it struck me that reefs were being overfished and poorly managed without any sense of conservation. One could see the Chinese long-liners just off shore fishing without restriction. Very sad for the Fijians.

Now, would I go there again. Maybe because there was some amazing small critters and soft corals. The islands and natives were beautiful and friendly. And the shark dive was not to be missed. We did it on two separate days and were entertained by some very photogenic tiger and bull sharks.

Many thanks to Mark, the resort manager, who helped make our stay very pleasurable.

Room Tip: Resort website is accurate.

Went here via a honeymoon package in August of 2013 - and overall I was pretty impressed. Comfy eco resort with very friendly staff. We stayed in one of the beachfront 2 bedroom bures - nicely appointed and island-style comfort. Remember it's an eco resort so the toilets are compost style. We wanted to be active for our honeymoon and we were - for extra money you can dive, kayak, hike to waterfalls, visit villages etc. The spa was nice and we had a very good couples massage. My only warnings would be that even though the place is run by canadians, not locals, they are not super organized and you have to stay on top of them in terms of the $$$ - over the course of your stay most stuff costs extra - beverages, activities, etc, and you don't see the bill until the last day, and most of the people staying the week we did found errors, always favoring the resort. So keep an eye on this, but other than that, enjoy!
