My family and I chose Belo Vula for our one week holiday in Fiji after reading the excellent reviews from other visitors. We were not disappointed. We chose 2 beachfront Bures for the 5 of us and found that the rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The island is like a piece of paradise and is relaxing while offering plenty to do and see.
The staff were very welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. The owner, Andrew, was always ready to listen and help, even giving us his own snorkle and goggles to use. The food and drinks were delicious with the chef happy to include additional vegetables from the local market and make superb smoothies from the fruit we bought. The coconut tree climbing and basket weaving class out on the grass is an amazing experience. And of course the Fijian music is superb. The spontaneous singing and guitar playing adds to relaxed atmosphere each day and the farewell songs at the end of our visit were beautiful.
Best of all kayaks, snorkles, goggles and life jackets are all free and are in good condition. Snorkling is great in front of the resort and even better if you kayak to the nearbye light beakon off the island. The only problem is the amount of litter and sediment washing up from the mainland. However, the staff work hard to clean the beaches each morning and the coral is recovering. Actually the coral is better and more varied than what we saw at the outer Mana Island on a day trip we took during our stay and other guests said the same about the other islands. The fish are abundant and colourful with most of the main species including butterfly, angel, banner, parrot, surgeon, wrasse and even some anemone fish present as well as sting rays, moray eels, sea cucumbers and cowries.
The other guests were lovely and friendly and we made a lot of new friends. A special thank you to the team including Andrew, Va, Atu, Remi, Joely, Matthew, Pana, Catika, Ashnita, Rina, Anna, Lila, Lika, La, Tom, Jack, Sam, Dan, Pana (the singer), Doki, Abas and everyone else for making our stay comfortable, interesting and enjoyable. We hope to seev you all again.
