Long post w/multiple questions... my apologies but you have to understand the background.

Almost 30 days before our trip begins on April 28-30, 2018 at Tokoriki Resort, we were going to spend the remaining 7 nights at Vomo island; a 5* Resort with gorgeous soft white sand beaches and clear not rocky water to die for. Some of the rooms aren’t as nice as Savasi, but the island location and reviews of how great Vomo is is what mattered to us more.

We just found out that Vomo is starting construction the day after we arrive working on the adult pool (that was supposed to be built by now :( and 2 addt’l beach houses -amazingly big w/the wow factor). My traveling companion just finished major construction at her house so the last thing we want to see on our very expensive 1st time to FIJI tropical paradise vacation is construction equipment even if we didn’t somehow hear it. And they are only offering discounts to people in the houses closest even though the only adult bar on the island sits right next to the pool being built. So we reached out to our travel agent and they came back with an amazing offer to stay at Savasi. I am grateful* but also worried because of the different type of sand and the rocks that could be in the water, and then I keep hearing about sea lice (bad reaction to it) and if I can’t go in the ocean, then what’s the point?

1st Q: did anyone who stayed at Savasi get Sea Lice? I’m hopeful that I can get something that protects us either way.

2nd Q-is there enough activities we can do since we can’t do some of the ones we originally planned like Cloudbreak, castaway Island, daily snorkeling to different locations?

3rd Q-how did some of you get offered an upgrade? *we very much appreciate Savasi accommodating our request at a months notice, incl. an upgrade for 4 of the 7 nights(we’re going to be in the wonderful Blue Lagoon 2 for 4 nights and then move to BL1 for 3 nights; going from a huge 2 bedroom with incredible water views to a much smaller 1 bedroom). I read other people have been upgraded to the waterfall room & I told my travel agent we would pay, but she said this all Savasi has, despite their website showing that the Beachhouse is available. With the Stay 7/Pay 5 promo, we are willing to pay if necessary.

What are our chances of being upgraded our last 3 nights or them letting us pay to stay in a larger/nicer accommodation 5/4-5/7? again, we are super appreciative of their help thus far ... but I’d rather start in the small room and end in the big room. (especially since we’re not a couple).

Q4-will we need a car now to hopefully utilize some of the other hotels activities for things like motorized watersports?

Thank you for all suggestions!
