“Good resort, bad staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Bounty Island is a small and beautiful island (20-30 minutes to walk around). There is a swimming pool, a bar with a pool, table tennis (but the racquets are broken ...) and board games (we didn't try them). The beach is great and there is also an inflatable trampoline on the sea for good fun!
We had a cute garden bure, full of space, with a fridge, facilities to make tea and coffee and a nice bathroom with hot water. It was cleaned every day. Be aware the bures are really close to each other, so even a whisper is quite noisy.
The food is not very good : buffet for breakfast (cereals, breads, butter, jam, peanut butter, tea, coffee, milk and fruits) and lunch (2 or 3 salads, 2 meats or fish, 2 sides and fruits) and dinner is à la carte (choice between 2 dishes, no refill if you're still hungry... And a dessert).
The bad point goes to the staff : we had a cold welcome (no music, no smile, only a small introduction of the island: very disappointing when you just arrived to "paradise".), they barely talked to us during our stay (3 nights). No communication at all. We didn't know what was going on on the island. They were nice only to the day trip visitors and made activities for them only. This was really sad and disappointing.
So if you want to do nothing but relax and talk to nobody, Bounty Island is the place to go!

We stayed in Bounty Island for the last week of our 3 month travelling adventure through South East Asia, Australia and Fiji, and i can honestly say it was one of the best weeks of the trip.
Every single member of the staff is so nice and helpful from the moment they sing you off the boat to the moment they wave you goodbye.
The location is beautiful, but being that its Fiji, it was never going to be bad! We stayed in a beachfront bure which was idyliic and the view in the morning is unparralled.

The price is very reasonable considering what you get for you money, the food included in the meal plan is both delicious and plentiful.

Massive thankyou to Rob and all the staff for making our stay one i'm sure we will never forget!

Bounty island was one of 3 islands we visited during our Fiji holiday and it is Fantastic , really amazing , the staff was wonderful welcoming , friendly and go out of their way to make your stay just perfect . They pride them self on the food and with reason you could pick up some weight if not for all the amazing activities such as snorkeling , kayaking and simply just walking around the island all day :)
The accommodation was just perfect , they have air cons every where , even the dorm rooms , this make for a really restful sleep ... I stayed in a bureau , the price was very reasonable since it included 3 meals a day and i would gladly go back for a visit.

After some stressful sleepless nights at other islands Bounty was just simply blissful and make my holiday just one of the best EVER :)

Had the best time, even though i stayed for the one night in a beachfront bure, i had an amazing time. The food is great. Great service and alot of activities to partake in. The manager of the place is a really nice guy so down to earth. Majority of the staff are nice and happy but others look like they hate their job. Especially the female bar staff whose always grumpy. Other then that awesome resort. Great job to the manager who runs the island

We stayed here for a few days in 2010 after staying at octopus resort. Bounty was very small you could walk round the island easily. Staff friendly and food ok. We stayed in a beach front bure which from the outside looked like a garden shed. But inside had room for a double bed and bunk beds lol.
They would often get day visitors and it was nice chatting to different people each day, the evenings were quiet. The place to go if you want to get away from it all
Had use of the kayaks if you wanted to. I love they way they sang to you as you landed and when you leave.

Myself and two grandchildren (11 and 8) spent the day on the Island. The location is wonderful....away from the crowds. The beach is clear and blue. The children were taken snorkelling for the first time by Coconut Joe and they had a great time. Joe was fantastic with them. They also hopped into a canoe and David was on the board with one of the staff. Beats the computer! We had lunch, so fresh and all cooked beautifully. The change rooms are big and clean. There is also a fresh swimming pool. We all agreed that this was the highlight of our stay in Fiji and hope to come back for a longer stay in one of the cabins and get back to basic living.

Stayed in one of the beach front bure;s at bounty island during April this year at it was awesome,definatley the best part of the trip to Fiji.There are options for diving and glass bottom boat rides out from the resort but there is no need to bother as the snorkelling there was incredible just 20m out from your front porch&hammock. Snorkelling gear is available for hire $25 and you can have the flippers and mask for the length of your stay at the island.Happy hour at the bar was great each night aswell $3 beers you can't go wrong.The food was really good on the all you can eat buffet ,pay for your meal plan upfront and have 3 meals provided each day,this is really the only eating option on the island,if you need to save a bit of cash take your own water and soft drinks out from Denarau as these can bet a bit expensive out on the islands.We organized our pick-up and drop-off transfers with South Sea cruises $180 FGD it is really the easiest option when travelling out to the Mamanuca;s

Room Tip: Get the beachfront bure's 20 bucks dearer but the views each night are worth it
