I am giving this place 5 stars for one simple reason: we had hell of a time there! It’s the most memorable place over the past years we visited with amazing resort and wonderful people. We stayed there two times - on the way to Sydney from LA and back, three days each way. It was a perfect break during the long flight. I only now regret we didn’t stay longer.
The resort is very peaceful and quiet. The rooms and bures are sparkling clean. The place looks new and underutilized with very few people around which worked great for us. The entire pool and the beach were ours! We swam, went kayaking, and just relaxed on the beach and by the pool. They arrange a shopping tour to Nadi twice a week for a small fee, and the airport transportation is free. The best part of the resort was it’s people. They did everything possible to make us feel welcomed: Finau at the front desk, Wati in the bar/kitchen, Joe and Josh with activities, and all other people. Yes, the resort isn’t perfect, and they still have to work on a few issues, such as Internet connection (drops often), too loud music sometime by the pool, TV programming (small TV and only one English speaking channel), food prices, quality and timing (perhaps one of the most important issues), room cleaning (which is mostly on demand). But, honestly, even those things cannot overweight all the pleasures the resort brings to you. Highly recommend, especially if you are on the way to Australia from US and need a stop over! Not sure when, but we will be back.
