Nice little islandPosted May 6, 2014
Cons: Bures need improvement, staff need to be aware of locations as some might want to relax so loud kids can be annoying. (we love kids otherwise)
Very nice peaceful location. Great and very friendly staff. Food is 5 star at the beautiful beachfront restaurant. Best snorkeling locations we've ever seen. What you need to know though are: Island does not have white sandy beaches so if that's your thing this is not your place, however they do organize trips to beautiful islands nearby so no biggie. Bures are nice and secluded however heavily family orientated with small loud kids so if you truly want to relax BE sure to talk to staff before booking to make sure you are allocated away from families. We had to move two days after we arrived as kids were screaming next to us from early morning. We were also only told about meal prices after we have booked in and paid which has doubled the whole package so be sure to check this prior to booking. Overall very pleasant experience and again specials thanks to the staff.

Peaceful Island. Super friendly & helpful staff.Posted Apr 3, 2014
Pros: Loved the peace and tranquility.
Cons: We would have appreciated air conditioning...and cheeseburgers.
Location: It's an Island, you do what they offer or lay in the hammock.
Super nice place. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The food was exquisite and very well prepared. Even when it was storming it was still so peaceful and relaxing. The fishing, snorkeling and diving is some of the best.

The Way an Island Holiday Should BePosted Mar 4, 2014
Pros: The privacy without feeling isolated. You can do lots or nothing. The staff are amazing and cannot do enough for you
Cons: The dock & boat to get you there is a bit dated, but don't let this deter you as what awaits is definitely worth the trip
Location: The boat trip is a half hour to get there. Daily activities include diving, nearby Village visit, basket weaving, on-site spa and others
From the moment you arrive at Toberua Resort you are made to feel so welcome. The staff are among the friendliest people I've ever met and cannot do enough for you. Each Bure is traditional Fijian and opens out onto it's own area of beach (much better than just another hotel room). The reason we chose this place was I wanted a holiday where I didn't have to worry about a thing, and wow were my expectations met & exceeded. The daily changing menu for lunch and dinner gives you a couple of options, and you never have to worry about booking a table, you just turn up to the Restaurant and everything is taken care of. There are daily activities for those who like to keep busy and wish to see the sights, or you can spend the day by the pool or in your very own double hammock. The on-site spa has beautiful treatments if you wish to treat yourself, and the reception area has gifts to take home to loved ones. I could go on and on about this wonderful Resort, but I won't ruin all the surprises, go and see for yourself... You won't be disappointed.

A-maz-ingPosted Feb 19, 2014
This was one of the most amazing places on earth that I have been to. The staff are really friendly and make you feel like part of a family. The island it's self is clean and a little peace of heaven in the Pacific Ocean. We got married on the island also and have to say it was the most stress free occasion I could have hoped for. If you like diving and snorkling then this is one of the most amazing places on earth to go to, reef sharks, turtles, nemos and stunning corals. We stayed in a tropical beach front bura and have to say that it was one of the best located on the island although every bura has an amazing view. it's a tiny island but has made a massive impact on our lives and I can quite possibly say that we will be going back one day. The food options are great as you get to pick from three options for mains, two for starters and two for desert both for lunch and dinner and breakfast you can choose from cereals to cooked breakfast so you won't go hungry on the island. A must do trip that the island will arrange is the village trip it only takes 15mins by boat and the villagers are really friendly and I would recommend taking school books for children as they are in need. All in all thanks to the setting and the staff on the island I will never forget what an amazing time I have had and toberua island resort will always have a place in my heart.

ParadisePosted Jan 25, 2014
Toberua may be a drop in the ocean, but it's a hidden pearl. A place of incredible beauty where the staff and other guests quickly become your second family. There is either so much to do or so little. The food - 4 courses for lunch and dinner and you don't want to leave a bite. They really do go above and beyond; I'll never forget seeing a boat take one of the restaurant staff out to a guest on a hobbie-cat in the middle of the ocean to ask for there dinner order. We are already planning our return visit!

Dreamy holiday experience!!Posted Nov 21, 2013
Pros: Everything, Francis at the spa was special. Food great. The twice daily inquiry as to your lunch and dinner choice was sometimes invasive
Cons: I should have asked for softer pillows. - I'm sure they would have had them.
What a beautiful island. I can't fault the resort or the bure or the service or the food or anything about the place. It was totally relaxing. My third time to Fiji and the best. Beautiful people, a real adventure getting there by road and a boat at night and an amazing welcome. Bula Fiji.

Great findPosted Nov 4, 2013
Pros: Food and staff; lots of free activities to do
Cons: Rooms could be cleaned more thoroughly more often (we stayed 8 nights and the bathroom was never properly cleaned); we also had a geckos in our room
Location: You're on a tiny private island so the only activities are the ones provided by the resort -- most that take you off the island cost money
Toberua Island is a great place where you will feel like home. My husband and I came here for our honeymoon. The guests are mostly couples, though during our stay a small family did arrive. The staff is very friendly and welcoming (don't be put off by the stern-faced woman who checks you in). Upon arrival, you are greeted by a band of island employees, singing you a Fijian welcome song. The check in process is done via consultation rather than in the usual standing-at-a-counter way. After you pick up a drink at the bar, you sit down for a quick chat about the rules while you're bags are whisked away to your room. Our room was a deluxe beachfront bure with 100% ocean views -- as with all the rooms on the island, it had it's own private sliver of beach and a hammock. We were on the east-facing side of the island, which is windier and does not actually have a beach you can swim in. There are many activities to do on the island, many of which are provided gratis (daily snorkeling, various board games, billiards, darts, golf, volleyball). This was a good thing because we had unseasonably bad weather during our visit and the various diversions helped keep us entertained. They also have talented musicians on the island who perform at meals twice a day. As others have noted, the food on the island (all is included with the meal plan) is out of this world and on part with top gourmet restaurants we've sampled in such cities as New York and Toronto

AWESOME ISOLATED GETAWAY!Posted Oct 21, 2013
Pros: The bures were so nice - it is awesome to step outside and see the sand and ocean. They are basic but have everything you need - so cool and relaxing.
Location: The trip to Picnic Island is a must, as well as the local village trip. Bring some school supplies to give the village school!
My husband and I chose Toberua Island Resort because of its isolated setting; we work hard and needed to force ourselves to relax. It was the perfect fit for us. Although we needed relaxation, we also like being physically active and this place had no shortage of activities for us. Volleyball, paddle boarding, snorkeling, scuba, kayaking. The staff was so friendly and helpful - the Fijian people are just all-around awesome. We were particularly impressed by all the music provided - the guitar music and singing at lunch and dinner was heavenly. We took a motor coach from Nadi because we thought we would like to see the countryside on our way to the boat. I was over it in about 1 1/2 hours. The speed limit in Fiji seems to max out at 50kph (31mph!) - so the trip was 4 VERY SLOW hours. We took the puddle-jumper back from Nausori to Nadi. That's the way to go. It's rare that you find a place that is incredibly romantic as well as completely family-friendly. We saw a couple with a baby there and they were very accommodating. It looked like the baby was enjoying herself immensely!

Island splendor in FijiPosted Jun 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
This was the way I always thought a vacation in Fiji would be. Pecious bures, all in wood, with gorgeous views of the ocean, a hammock on the front porch and your own little portion of beach. Because it is an island, there are no keys on the doors, and there is nothing to worry about. There is a limit of about 36 guests, so everything is kept small. However, you have all the amenities of a resort, with its own dive shop that allows you to go snorkeling, paddling or kayaking around the island whenever you want (high tide), or learn to scuba dive with their PADI certified divers. Isireli, the main diver is awesome! Potential downside for some people could be the limited option of dining sevices, which is only the main kitchen, but it is really good gourmet kitchen! It is an extra cost, though, that is NOT optional really, unless you go to shore, for which you have to pay to access. I takes about 30 min from shore to the island, but only about 10-15 min to diving sites...this was a true vacation Fiji style, worth every penny! Leave your watch at home and just relax.
