Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Unforgettable Experience with exceptional scenery and heart warming people. Val and her family exceeded my expectations. The resort has been a labour of love for Val and her late husband and they have created a special secluded tropical paradise. The whole staff made it a very special holiday.. Nancy, Lucy, Sarah, Moses, Nan, Marie, Domie, George, Bill, Zac , Levu (massage) and so many I can't remember the names.

My son and I very, very much enjoyed our stay at Nanuya Island Resort! The views there are so beautiful, the people so kind, and the food delicious. It was a paradise! We stayed in one of the treetop bures, which had incredible views across the lagoon, with birds singing outside, just so lovely. The room was very nice and comfortable, with a nice bathroom. Very relaxed and casual, and with a thatched roof and tropical feel...amazing. Our friends were just blown away with the pictures and videos we shared with them. The staff at Nanuya are the kindest, warmest people. They will sing for you and with you, invite you to their sitdown kava ceremony, and everyone knows your name right away. I've never been anywhere like Nanuya, seriously. The food was always different and always wonderful, and really very affordable. There is plenty to do, with kayaks, snorkeling, local crafts classes, day trips to local villages or the special cave island. Swimming through to the underground cave on that trip was very scary for me (I get claustrophobic), but others loved it. And walking along the beach, which you can sometimes have all to yourself, was just beautiful and magical. After our time in Nanuya, we then went on to 2 resorts on Viti Levu, neither of which compared...we were wishing we were back at Nanuya. I would go there again in a heartbeat and highly recommend Nanuya Island Resort! Bula!

From the moment we arrived, we were treated like VIPs. We were welcomed with a beautiful traditional Fiji song and given free shell lays. They were a lovely touch.❤️ Nancy, the manager, was a standout as she went above and beyond for us for our entire stay. Nothing was too much for her. The other staff were also amazing Zac the gardener , the bar staff, spa and the water sports guys. Sorry, i can't remember everyones names. However, they were down to earth, friendly and professional. The rooms were spotless, decorated beautifully, and had breathless views. House keeping checked on us every day. The gardens looked like they could have been featured in a home and garden magazine. The staff were great at making cocktails, and the equipment in water sports was clean and in a good repaired state.And were included in the cost of the rooms The food was fantastic. Beach was clean. And we were lucky enough to meet the owners of the resort who were fantastic. Thanks, Val and Donna!! After telling Nancy that I wanted to ask my partner to marry me. She disrectly.....made it happen with the help of the owners. She upgraded us to the penthouse suite and had the staff bring our luggage from the other room.Nancy decorated it for our celebration. The penthouse( love shack!) was stunning. We enjoyed the privacy of our own beach, private spa, air conditioning,outdoor shower, hot water, fresh towels every day, a safe and perfectly manicured gardens. We don't have a bad word to say about the resort and will be raving about it to all our family and friends!! We didn't want to leave. Also when we plan the wedding we will definitely be choosing this as our destination

The Resort personnel gave us a full Fiji Island experience and for this we give them 10 out of 10. Good food, varied menu, lovely people, daily activities listing, fantastic location, great accommodation using both a Delux Villa and Superior Villa with Spa. There is no swimming pool, but this is a bonus as you step off the grass into the beautiful lagoon.

Amazing family holiday. Nanuya resort is a beautiful resort, lovey villa with aircon and an oversized and lively outdoor bathroom with 3 showers and a spa bath. We were a family of 4 staying 10 nights. Favourites: Guided snorkelling trips with Moses and Vilimoni. Absolutely amazing. We wanted to do it daily. Saw turtles, reef sharks, sting rays, a huge variety of corals and colourful fish. They took us to different sites each time. We all loved the snorkelling so much. The ocean is crystal clear with a perfect temperature. A short stroll along the sand or kayak across to the point for more snorkelling off shore was also great. We even saw turtles when standing up paddle boarding on the last day. The food was very good and they made Kokoda (a favourite Fijian fish dish) to order which I loved. Daily massages and swimming in the afternoons made for a perfect holiday. Everyone is so friendly. We really loved the music too. Billy is very talented singer and guitarist. Excellent live music every evening at dinner and the fun Bula song every morning at breakfast was great. We also did the cave trip (not recommended for young kids as there’s a part where you have to swim underwater in a dark tunnel for a few seconds to get to the second cave) The cocktail menu was extensive and another thing which made the holiday just that. Thank you to everyone for making our time so amazing. Tui and George at the bar, (Tui is the coolest Fijian on the island!!”) Nancy, Maree were lovely, helpful and welcoming, Amini in the restaurant was always smiling and happy, Moses, Vilimoni, Mike and Bill were fabulous taking us out for day trips in the boat. Highly recommend. Val runs this resort very well and it shows. Her staff are happy and helpful at all times.

After a warm welcome with guitar music, welcome drink and necklace , we found a beautiful place in the middle of paradise. The staff was very charmant and friendly and indeed, they made from the beginning until the end everything correct and above standard. We stayed in a tree top bure with an amazing view onto crystal clear water with a charming blue touch. All in all it‘s a very good resort with a much higher standard and professionalism than all others we’ve seen on a 4 weeks trip. We came as guests and left as friends with a heart warming good bye, music and flower decoration. Vinaka for this experience. See you next time

Quaint rustic warm vibes. Outstanding staff and service and good food options. Some parts of the resort are a little worn but it’s part of the charm. We had four fantastic days here. Water sport gear was free to use and the cabanas had idilic views.

Amazing experience. A lovely quiet resort. The staff are fantastic and cater for everything. The chefs looked after our dietaries (gluten and dairy free) with some fantastic meals. The staff genuinely care for every guest. The room was beautiful with a view over the ocean for sunset. I hope to be back! Vinaka!

We had a great time at Nanuya Island resort. The staff absolutely made this trip, they were so welcoming and we had a lot of fun with them during activities at the resort and off the island (shout out to Villimoni, Israel, and both Bill’s in activity team! You were awesome and are doing a great job). Our room was very clean and comfortable, and all food was delicious. Drinks were fantastic, and were kept flowing for us by the great hospitality team (shout out to Tui, Mini and George - thank you for the laughs!) A shame not to get Wi-Fi included in the restaurant area given the room rate was quite high, but we enjoyed the stay very much, attributed mainly to the excellent and lovely staff we met and beautiful surroundings. Thank you, Nanuya! For other travellers - definitely recommend taking the walk to Lo’s tea house across the island. Fish feeding, guided snorkelling and hand-line fishing were also fantastic activities for a couple of hours each day! The boat to reach Nanuya takes quite a while, and is an added expense to factor in to your planning, but we would definitely recommend the time and effort to get away from the mainland. It is a completely different experience!

My wife and I recently spent 3 nights at the nanuya island resort. Our arrival unfortunately coincided with the funeral of the resorts owner Ivan Albert Parker who passed away suddenly on the 19/08/2023. From that perspective we offer our condolences to the family and friends. In terms of our stay here these were the things we liked - Adults only resort and clearly caters for couples rather than families. - Not all inclusive. Room price came with breakfast. You can purchase dinners and drinks and pay at the end. I thought dinners were reasonably priced (45-65FJD). - There is a convenience store attached to the resort you can use to purchase a few items although I would suggest bringing your own alcohol from the mainland. - Rooms were private in the sense that they were individual bures and positioned high up on the hill. This afforded great sunset views as well as capturing the cool evening breeze. - Rooms were well appointed and kept clean. There was a bar fridge so it was easy to mix your own drinks on your sunset balcony. Didn’t have air con but during the time we visited it wasn’t needed. - The island was fairly large and had a range of activities. I agree with other reviewers in that a walk across the island to Lola’s tea house is a must. She makes the most delicious Fijian donuts although I’d advise against the homemade lemonade as I suspect the water wasn’t purified and ended up giving me some gastroenteritis the next day. - As seems to be the trend in Fiji - the real highlight is it’s people. They were so friendly and welcoming even during a difficult time of mourning. They went out of their way to try to include us in the activities. Special mention would go to ‘Mini’. - They run a tour to the caves daily at 0830 at a cost of 120FJD each. - There are numerous large empty beaches and snorkelling spots on offer, in addition to the numerous other activities. - The yasawa flyer drops you off right in front of the resort - Hot water worked well. In terms of negatives - It’s one of the furthest islands north and the last stop on the yasawa flyer. The manta rays are offered but at a high cost of 250pp and it’s a fair distance away by boat ride. - There were a lot of mosquitos so you might want to consider bringing insect repellent. Fortunately all the windows have screens in the rooms. - If for whatever reason you need wifi it doesn’t reach the rooms. I had reasonable reception with digicel.
