Ultra-5 star experience -- for the most part
Posted Aug 15, 2016
My wife and I stayed here for anniversary - 3 nights in garden bungalow, 3 nights in overwater. Staff is extremely kind, was prompt to attend to our dietary preferences (allowed us to make custom orders off the menu which were deliciously prepared by the chef). This resort had the best snorkeling spot we experienced in Fiji for a 5-star (equivalent snorkeling at Barefoot Kuata resort, but that one is definitely NOT a 5-star). Overwater bungalow was great; EXCEPT at low tide cannot swim off Bungalow - for that we preferred overwater bungalow experience at Four Seasons Bora Bora, which is similar in price. Garden bungalow was nice as well, but has showers only (no tub), and need to go to main dock to be able to snorkel. We enjoyed the infinity pool and hobbie-cat catamaran. Things requiring improvement: meals are delicious, but LONG ("Fiji time"; lunch is 1-1.5 hours) and meal times not flexible, with no snack place available after hours - made us miss out on best time of day (noon to 15h00). Hiking trail dangerous at times because not enough signs to show where to go. Overall, had a fantastic experience. Would return for the people, the food, and the venue; however, pricey and would probably opt for a different experience for this price.
