I live in Fiji and have traveled dozens of places throughout the islands. Rarely in this world today can you find such a unique, relaxing, and overall enchanting little hide-away. The staff, from top to bottom, are a pretty incredible group and welcome guests as family. Foods are delicious and most ample. For snorkelers, the reef just off-shore is healthy...

It's the most beautiful and peaceful place in Fiji!! We stayed there for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. There are 2 dogs called Keshi and Leka, they are really lovely and also have some cats, all animals are very cute. We also enjoyed diving and snorkelling, the coral is colorful and the sea is clear. If you have...

First of all, the resort which I was at, is on Vanua Levu, the Guesthouse and the bungalow (which are both different but good), are on Taveuni. BUT the resort is closest to all the diving, so this is where you want to be if you want to dive. And that was absolutely the best ever! Soft corals, colors, fish,...

Had a good look around tavenui and the immediate area and have to say I was hugely disappointed. As trip advisor ambassador I always try to be impartial and have plenty to say as I have been in dozens of countries this year alone.

We spent 5 days with Dolphin Bay Divers. The diving was good and I am hard to please when it comes to reefs. The setup was professional and fun. We stayed in the jungle tents which were very good value for money and when the quality of staff and food are thrown in, this makes for a very different and...

I stayed with the Dolphin Bay Divers team in October 2012 for a week and enjoyed everything about it. I stayed in a "tent" which was perfect for me, with two little beds off the floor which made it feel like a proper home of my own following dorm stays on other islands. The diving on the Rainbow Reef was...

This is a good place to stay, particularly if you are into diving. There are 30 dives within a 10 minute boat ride on the Somosomo Strait, and the density and diversity of both corals and fish is amazing. We did 13 dives in the week we stayed here, including a night dive. Being fairly new to diving, it took...
