WOW what a fabulous holiday destination!
flew in by sea plane which was fabulous in itself, we got to view a lot of the islands and reefs from the air. I am not a good flyer but I felt completely safe and actually enjoyed it.
We were greeted on the beach with a "welcome home" from the staff and at home we certainly felt. A very warm and friendly place. Roy and Louise go out of their way to make you feel welcome and make your holiday special. The staff are absolutely delightful and certainly add an extra special dimension to the island.
You can relax or be as active as you like on this island, activities from morning to night. The beach is gorgeous and the water so clear and blue.
I could not fault this place and can honestly say one of the best holidays I have had.
Only 11 Bures right on the beach with your own hammock and recliners.No fighting for a deck chair by the pool here. The Bures are very spacious, not that we spent much time in there. Lovely veranda for us to sit on at night and watch the sun set.
We took our two girls with us 16 and 18. We initially thought they may get a little bored.I could not have been more wrong! There were so many activities such as walks with guide, which were stunningly beautiful; Snorkeling and a Fijian cooking cooking lesson.We played Volleyball on the beach with the staff and other guests.
There were also social activities at night such as a Kava ceremony, I could go on and on.
We visited the two villages on the island which are traditional and a true Fijian cultural experience that you wont get at the bigger resorts.
We Scuba dived together as family and that was an amazing experience. We all felt very safe and comfortable with Roy, (owner and Scuba dive instructor).
Although the island suffered a major cyclone a couple of years ago which did affect the reefs they are coming aback in abundance, we were not disappointed. We saw beautiful coral, fish and even a Turtle-magic.
The rooms were very clean and attended to daily, with nice little touches such as Tropical flowers on your pillow, the beds were turned down at night.
The staff couldn't do enough for you, not that we wanted for anything. Lovely toiletries "Pure Fiji" which are beautiful.
Food lovely, good choices taking into consideration logistics of getting produce to the island, some of the produce is actually produced fresh on the island.
I also had quite a few massages which were so relaxing, (the girls were very professional and well trained). I found myself snoring half way through.
This is somewhere I will definitely return to.
Was very hard leaving e this place and the staff.
Thanks Roy, Louise and all of the lovely staff on the island, too many to name and I wouldn't like to miss one out.
Sara,Mark, Abbie and Hannah.
P.S. Thanks so much for 25 year wedding anniversary cake, that was a nice surprise and a nice touch.
