Bula and greetings karl .. What a great thing that you arrived to stay with us .. and got to experience your first Lovo Meke... The Lovo is an important way of experiencing Fijian foods such as nama, Ota, kokoda, and the ground cooked sweet potato, dalo, palsami, pork, fish, chicken and of course traditional desserts.

Wayne and his team run an extremely good service. Informative and very friendly staff made our week long visit very pleasant indeed. The prices are fair in return for what quite frankly should ultimately be a 4 Star resort. Keep an eye out for Tui and be sure to hear it first hand from a very proud, modest and genuine...

My wife and I and twin three-year-olds just spent a total of 13 nights at Tambua Sands. We had originally planned one week at Tambua and the remainder of our Fiji time was to be spent in the Yasawa Island chain. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to cut our Yasawa trip short and return to Viti Levu (considered the...

Decided to have a relaxing getaway away from the buildings and buzz.. Beautiful beach bures along a long stretch of sand and waves.

This was our second time here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes it may only be rated 3 star but it punches above this. We prefer to stay here as it is a small resort right on the beach and even when it's busy it doesn't feel so hectic. I'm unsure why we got a beach front Bure because we...

My boys and I (they're 12 and 14) stayed for 5 nights in April, and had a really great holiday. Tambua absolutely lived up to all the reviews I'd read.
