Excellent, laid back but attentive, friendly staff, brilliant situation. I wasnt quite sure about the road to start with, but completely forgot about it after a short time. Enjoyed the dinners, and lunches, all very good food. One comment that might be looked at - to make the lunch menu a bit less 'western standard'? Can't fault the dinner menus...

We stayed here for two nights after doing some islands hopping. We were impressed with the bures and the facilities. Our hot water didn't work in our first room so we were swiftly moved to a beach front bure. The food is good, more money than we had previously paid in Fiji (double compared to Nadi) but higher quality. The...

What a beautiful location. The beach is one of the best I have seen on Viti Levu, absolutely gorgeous. The resort itself is simple with older style bures lined up along the beach. The rooms are spacious and comfortable enough. The restaurant was a disappointment though. Bland, greasy food and the ambiance didn't invite to stay longer than needed. We...

As return guests (and an ex-local) who much prefer the intimacy and charm of small boutique resorts, my wife and I (along with 43 family & friends) were excited to have held our 'deliberately laid back' island themed wedding at Tambua Sands in mid October. The wonderful weather and beautiful beachside location delivered what we could only describe as the...

When you discover a hidden gem like this it's tempting to keep it a secret 😀. Tambua Sands is that gem! But the place deserves praise. Set on the amazing Coral Coast, Tambua Sands is an authentic, traditional Fijian resort. Unlike some of the neighbouring behemoths that house 400+ rooms, this place will give you privacy, space and comfort throughout...
