We recently did a homestay with Tui and all we can say is that we were really treated as part of the family. Tui is really a nice man and he is very proud of his Fijian heritage. He was very detailed in explaining Fijian culture such as differences in preparing kava for village chief and friends. Although there were... More

We were lying outside looking at the stars until we fell asleep, had a swim in the mountain river in the morning. Spectacular location in Fiji highlands. Tui is a wonderful host and I hope one day we have a chance to re-visit. It is difficult to reach Tui sometimes, so I will just put his contact info here for... More

I loved this place! It was a taste of real Fiji, up in the peace of the beautiful green and lush mountain. The bure (hut) was comfortable and cosy and Tui was a fantastic host who consistently overfed us every mealtime! He's a very honest and friendly man who gave us a kava ceremony and guided us around the stunning... More

We stayed there in Septembre 2015 after we had passed 10 nights on the really touristic Yasawa Islands. It was really different in the highlands, you shouldn´t miss going there while you are staying in Fiji! The landscape is beautiful, the lodge is situated close to a river you can swim in, Navala is definitively worth a visit, you can... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Bulou's Eco Lodge. The location is beautiful and quiet, just 15 minutes walk from Navala and the Bure we stayed in was cute and had everything we needed. The best thing about Bulou's Eco Lodge are the hosts: Tui spoiled us with great home cooked (and in part also home-grown) meals and answered all... More

This was my first time in Fiji and I am so happy to have seen both sides of this beautiful island country. There is the lovely blue waters and touristy attractions and then there is the deep cultural side of Fiji that not many get to experience. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Tui who is a gentle soul.... More

It was initially hard to get in touch with Tui, but we finally did and he met us in Ba and drove us to the lodge. It is a lovely trip into the highlands on a road that is partly dirt and partly sealed. The lodge is basic with a large building with the kitchen and dining area. We stayed... More

While planning our 17 day trip to Fiji it was important to me to have a mix of island life, resort-ish, budget and swishy and a cultural element. Bulou's definitely fulfilled the cultural and budget elements and was an experience we are so glad to have had. It was difficult to get in touch with Tui in advance to make... More

We stayed at Bulou's for only one night during our vacation. It is a very rustic sort of accommodation - we stayed in one of the bure's, which was as close to living like a native villager as you can probably get. No hot water, electricity, or screens on the windows. But what the place lacks in modern comforts, Tui... More

If there is one place I could suggest to travellers visiting Fiji, it is this. Nestled in the stunning mountains of Ba and just minutes away from Fiji's only traditional village (Navala), Bulou's lodge is an oasis in the pristine landscape of Ba. It is the only place one can stay while visiting Navala, and thank God that's the case!... More
