If you're looking for 5 star luxury resort then this is not the place. However it gets 5 stars for making us feel like part of the family and community. Located at the northern end of Morovo lagoon my wife and I enjoyed an unexpected extended stay at Mavo due to the arrival of the 1st cyclone in winter in...

Spent a wonderful week here with friends in early May. Made to feel very welcome by the staff and the community. Fished every day and participated in all the activities that were available. Relaxed in the sea, snorkelled just off shore. Enjoyed a drink at the bar overlooking the ocean. Ate very fresh seafood every day. Returned home very relaxed,...

Booked for our sixth visit is a big indication of what we think of Ramata Island. Last visit we went for 2 weeks and again we have booked for 2 weeks next year. It just gets better, I think the bond we are building with not only the lodge but the village is making it such a unique holiday compared...

We went to Ramata Island last year (2013) in September last year and are heading back in July 2014. The people are beautiful, the scenery is awesome and the relaxation is the best I've found in the South Pacific. We travelled with our two kids (9 & 11) and made the most of the fishing and adventure experience. We were...

Mine is a totally impartial review as a director of a major Aus travel agency who booked (at normal rates) through Gotours (who we have no connection with) and their documentation was faultless. Our social mix of 9 keen fishermen ex BNE aged 35-67 yrs were first-timers and all indicate they will be returning ASAP, myself with my adult family...

Have recently returned from a glorious week at Mavo Eco Lodge on Ramata Island. From the moment I stepped off the plane I was blown away by the simple beauty of the Island and lagoon and the warmth of the people who run the lodge. Our rooms were so quaint and cleaned every day, anything you need you only have...

“small lodge only caters for no more than 10 at time, very reasonable prices.”

“There are three huts on the beach and their are several rooms up at the fishing lodge, it usually up to the visitors who have booked together who gets what rooms. If it is a mixed bunch of guests the couples get the huts first. The island people prefer only 8 guests at a time but can take up to around 12. Another reason why Ramata is so special, as they like small groups so that they can make your holiday so unique.”

“The beach huts are best especially if you have kids. If there is anything you don't like tell them and they will fix it.”

“No swimming pool but fresh water swimming hole and also salt water cave, awesome experience with goggles etc. accommodation is like five star camping, very comfortable mattresses, huts on beach with ensuites but cold water. If the cold water bothers you pack a camping solar bladder to heat in the sun. Last day of fishing last sept my husband and myself caught 2 wahoos each and a selection of good reef fish. My husband hooked a sail fish just out from our cabin, which gave us awesome entertainment for awhile.”

“There a burea / hut style rooms which are on the water and very basic but more than adequate.. They comprise a bed, table, mosquito nets and very basic ensuite with plumbing.. Rooms at the main lodge are smaller and for travellers.. Most huts & rooms & furnishings are made by the locals so dont expect luxury accomodation just a fantastic service & experience..”
