I was blown away. The location, the accommodations, but mostly by the people who we met there. We were a group of 8. I don't think they had ever had one group with so many people before. If that is so, they passed every test with flying colors! We were treated like one of the family. We all decided we wanted to have all our meals in the main pavilion next to the kitchen. Easier for the staff to deal with, and we could hear all their happy voices and laughter while we ate and drank and chatted. And the meals....our chef Zach was amazing! We had Simeli and Kele there to drive us around wherever we wanted to go. And they were always willing to talk about Fiji and answer our questions. And all the ladies who are the staff there...beautiful and friendly. We all felt we got a taste of Real Fiji, and we all agreed we could not have had a better time. My only regret was leaving. And hopefully, someday, we will get back there. Keeping my fingers crossed! In short, we all recommend Emaho Sekawa 100% Paul A. Chapman

If you would like a holiday escape different from the usual white-sand-blue-water island bure, Emaho Sekawa is a gem to behold. While many of the resorts in Fiji are located on outlying, and some isolated, islands, Emaho situated itself on the hilltop overlooking the Savusavu Bay, which offers a panoramic view of the ocean, the rainforest and the mountains in one go. Still, you can be rest assure that nearly all activities other resorts offer can be found at Emaho, including kayaking along the river and picnicking on a pristine sand dune. Being all-inclusive, so do many resorts, Emaho has definitely outdone itself. While having only 3 villas, amongst which 2 villas only house 1 couple each, the team dedicates in providing bespoke service to suit every guest's needs. It is definitely a bargain to be able to "charter" the premise at one-room price and enjoy ultimate prestige and privacy. We have booked "Villa Emaho", the signature villa of over 200 sqm in size all to ourselves. With a 20m terrace, it is the best place to appreciate the sun rises and sets with your loved one. As a full-board accommodation, the chef "Kim" (aka Kin-man) is talented and is proficient in a wide range of cuisines, from Fijian to international delicacies, to meet the catering needs of guests from all around the world. Kim will even go the extra mile to design menus daily according to the taste of guests and to hunt for fresh and seasonable ingredients. The Emaho indigenous crews have demonstrated the highest level of Fijian hospitality. As residents from the resort's neighbourhood, the staff not only greet you with the warmest welcome, they are also enthusiastic in showing you the real life of Fijian. Apart from visiting the local town, it was especially an honour for us to be able to participate in a church service with delightful children and teenagers of a local village. We would like to take this opportunity to express our utmost gratitude to each of the Emaho team for their hospitality and efforts: "Rupeni" for taking us around and enabling the visit to his village; "Chantel" and "Olivia" for making arrangement of our daily itinerary; "Sumeli", "Junius" and "Emanuli" for facilitating water activities; and "Farah", "Una", "Mere" and "Loi" for providing comfortable and caring services. All in all, the service is unmatched and is worth every penny. This resort is highly recommended for those who seek tranquility and bespoke vacation.

A true luxury personalized Fiji experience! Location: Stunning and lives up to the pictures, the view is incredible from the villas. You are perched up and surrounded by thick rainforest with amazing sunset views. It is a nice change from the usual beach resorts in Fiji and you’ll experience the more authentic side of Fiji. Villas: Well maintained with all luxuries you’d expect, including stocked personalized fridge, Pure Fiji/Aesop amenities, slippers, robes, good air conditioning and most importantly are bug free. You’ll get the odd occasional fly/bug come into the room but expected in an exotic environment. The infinity pool and deck area is where you’ll spend most of the time, we choose to fully disconnect but there is also apple tv and good wifi. Food: We travelled around Fiji across many resorts but the food at Emaho is what we remember most. Kim who was our personal chef for the stay was fantastic and created a personalized menu just for us and even catering fully for a gluten free intolerance! Gluten free bread and even a freshly baked gluten free carrot cake and sponge cake on our final night were not expected in such a remote location. Some of the other food highlights were the amazing lobster feast, Thai/Asian inspired dishes, Fijian deserts and breakfast spreads. Cocktails were also delicious here made freshly, recommend the Tom Collins and Mojito, it was a treat to have these whenever we wanted right on our terrace. Activities: Everything was catered around us and we were able to make our itinerary as we felt each day. The resort has a comfortable and much needed for the terrain Ford Ranger Raptor for transport which was perfect for our local village tours, waterfall tour, beach, town tour and getting to/from the airport. Rupei took us around as our guide and was amazing and knowledgeable. Ru is a real asset to Emaho and very humble/genuine Service: This is what sets Emaho apart, with just three villas you can expect unrivalled personal service. Everything was done to our time and plan. Every staff was exceptional and authentic, you become part of the family and we learnt so much about Fiji during our stay with Emaho compared to any other resort we stayed at in Fiji. The final night we were serenaded with music and took part of the Kava ceremony with staff and locals, a magical and once in a life time experience that we will never forget and truly thankful to have been part of. Thank you Emaho Sekewa, we hope we can return one day!

All over Fiji are so-called inclusive resorts but Emaho Sekawa is in a league of it’s own. Located on the secluded Savusavu island and about 15 minutes drive from town, Emaho Sekawa is Ultimate luxury, surrounded by lush green palm rainforests and with views over the surrounding beaches and bay. The staff at Emaho are incredibly friendly, warm and welcoming, providing everything that was asked for and giving us a local’s perspective. Emaho perfectly suits an active outdoorsy holiday or a peaceful cocktails by the pool kind of vibe. Their are 3 villas on the property all are self contained with kitchen, private pool, stunning views, day beds, outdoor dining and large verandah, beautiful rich Fijian wood line all the bedrooms and bathrooms with amazing coconut milk products for the shower and bathroom. Incredibly large rooms with California king size bed and a variety of pillows makes sleeping very dreamy. Activities that are on hand include snorkelling, visiting a private island, kayaking, hiking, chasing waterfalls, fishing and visiting the local villages. Our snorkelling encountered beautiful coral, sea stars, zebra fish, clown fish, sea urchin and a rare clam. That afternoon we followed up with kayaking along the local river out into the sea. We got a little tired once we got to the sea and the staff were amazing as they came and picked up our boat as we walked back along the beach. All across the island of Savusavu are mountains and sweeping valleys, so waterfalls are abundant. While some are easy to access others require a guided hike. We reserved one day for a hike where Emaho led us with two guides who cleared the scrub in front of us and made sure we stepped safely. It was a big day but probably the most enriching one of our trip. Wild plants, animals, trees and fruits and vegetables all on show and at the end an incredible waterfall to jump into. This was such a blessing and our guide mentioned that not many people hike these trails, a unique and untouched part of the world, of which there are very few left. Everyday we were greeted by meals that were cooked with a light touch. Nothing was ever over done and the chef has a real finesse to his meals. He will prepare anything you desire and you can choose when you would like to eat. If you want to go off-menu just give them some time to prepare as it takes time to rustle up the ingredients. The menu changed everyday and was a combination of western and Fijian meals. The chef noticed we really enjoyed the fish curries and stews made with coconut milk which are local ad inspired by the Indian diaspora of Fiji. We enjoyed these and mentioned that we wanted to try as much Fijian-native food as possible while there at Emaho, so they are very receptive to requests. The last night the staff prepared a feast (lobster!) and traditional kava ceremony. We had 5 members sing us songs with acoustic guitar both local and western music. Kava is something to be treated with respect and should not be trivialised. It was a fitting way to close out our Savusavu adventure in Fiji. To Ru, Mary, Lol, Ismail, Farah and the rest of the staff at Emaho, we are eternally grateful and will be back soon for sure.

We had an amazing time at Emaho Sekawa resort for our honeymoon! We stayed at the Villa Totoka for 7 days and were treated like royalty. An unforgettable experience and so worth it. We happened to be the only guests there during our stay so all the attention was on us! Here were some of our highlights: SERVICE: omg we've never been treated so well at a resort/hotel ever! They gave us a cell phone specifically so we could call the front desk or kitchen if we needed anything. We used it to call mainly to order cocktails to bring to our villa as well as planning activities for the next day. Mire was our bartender/server for most of our stay and she did a great job. In fact everyone did. Especially her, Lora (masseusse), Smally and Reuben (our tour guides) and the chef (can't remember his name now) who would come out personally to speak to us after meals. We were very well cared for and everyone always smiling and laughing with us. FOOD & DRINKS: I'm a big foodie so this was one was very important for me. I can honestly say the food at this resort is the best I've had at any resort or hotel. The chef is extremely talented and can make something very tasty out of the local ingredients he has on hand. Breakfast and lunch are one course while dinner is 3 courses. Some of our favorites were Kokoda, lobster, chicken schnitzel sandwich, fish & chips, mud crab, seafood pizza, chili pesto pasta, eggplant soup, rourou soup, snapper nicoise salad, baked fish, NZ steak. The cocktails were also amazing, I loved ordering the mojitos and coconut drinks made with Fijian rum and vodka ACTIVITIES: Every day we did a new activity and Smally/Reuben were on top of suggesting options to us based on the weather. Activities were planned the day before. Our favorites were the sand island excursion which is a 45 min boat ride to a very small island. Smally brought beer, water, sandwiches, snorkelling gear and even an umbrella to setup at the island. Amazing snorkeling and crystal clear turquoise water. We also loved hiking to the big waterfall although it was a very difficult hike. MASSAGES: As mentioned Lora was an amazing masseusse! Since massages are included in the stay, we ended up getting a 60 minute massage every single day. She is so good at keeping a very nice flow and also great at massaging my head which I loved. It was amazing getting a massage on our deck every afternoon and hearing the calming sounds of the rain. My only gripe was that I tried the sugar scrub on one day and it ended up being only 20 min when it was advertised as a 90 minute treatment. I told management about this and they were happy to hear the feedback to update their guest book.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was definitely the highlight of our trip to Fiji. We felt very pampered during our stay. From the beginning, the hotel was gracious enough to pick us up from another resort. The car they used looked brand new, was clean, and comfortable. Arriving at the resort, we were greeted by the friendly staff with a song and each of them introduced themselves to us. They even gave us a fresh coconut and handmade necklaces. We stayed in Villa Emaho and to say the view was breathtaking is an understatement. The Villa was comprised of 2 separate living areas, one with the bedroom and bathroom while the other building had a kitchen, living space, and a smaller bathroom. All this was set against the backdrop of a gorgeous mountain view. Initially when we were booking we thought we'd feel a little regret not being right by the ocean but we wanted to experience the change in scenery and it was very much the right choice! The view of the mountains, the distant beaches, the sunrises and sunsets were amazing. There are multiple outdoor spaces including an outdoor shower and there was definitely nothing like taking a shower while watching the sunset and different birds and bats flying overhead in the night. As for the accommodations, you could tell they truly care about their property as everything was very clean and looked new and updated. The manager there mentioned they did everything they could to keep the resort as up to date as possible during the pandemic. We had just come from another resort that had pebbled flooring, a confusing shower system with random spurts of very hot/very cold water, and so many bugs so Emaho was very much a nice change. Now I will say their indoor shower could be a little on the warmer side but there were no complaints about the temperature of their outdoor showers. There are also plenty of bugs outdoors at night and we had an occasional mosquito or fly in the indoor spaces but overall all very manageable. The resort also provides mosquito repellant. Each day we did something different and I almost wish we took one day to do nothing because there was already so much to do in the room: swimming in our own private plunge pool while blasting tunes (they provide a portable waterproof speaker), yoga with a gorgeous view (yoga mats also provided), drinking unlimited drinks, getting a massage (I did the sugar scrub which I'd definitely recommend). During our stay we went into town for some afternoon fishing (which we very much appreciated since we're not really morning people). It was slightly cloudy but our guide assured us this was the best time to fish and we caught 3 total during our 2hr trip. We even saw some dolphins! The next day we booked a tour to go to their private island and do some snorkeling. I think this was our most favorite activity. We went out to the island in a smaller motorboat and it took about half an hour to get there. We almost wish the boat ride was longer though since it was such a beautiful day and the air was so refreshing. The island was small and surrounded by beautiful blue water of all different shades. The captain helped us set up our beach blankets, snorkel gear, and picnic lunch and then let us know he'd be back in a few hours. We had the whole island to ourselves! We bummed around the island itself just taking it all in first then went snorkeling to the Black Rock. There weren't too many fish around the Black Rock itself but along the way there were some sections of reef with beautiful fish to see! When we finally got back to the island, we decided to dig into our picnic lunch that the hotel packed for us: sandwiches, fruit, chips, cookies, and some Fiji Bitters which were all tasty. Speaking of the food here, it was all so good! They have you pick your meals the day/meal before and there's usually at least one vegetarian dish per meal. Your meal also comes with a selection of drinks, both alcoholic and nonalcoholic. I did wish the breakfast came with some kind of sweet option but otherwise I'd recommend their seafood omelet! Lunch and dinner were 3 courses with each meal option being different day to day. You also have the option of picking where you'd like to eat your meals whether it's by the lobby or anywhere in your villa! On our last night, we decided to attend a traditional kava ceremony before our dinner and we were so glad we did. It made our time at Emaho all the more memorable. The staff taught us the traditional customs that followed having kava and sang and played guitar while we all enjoyed the drink and each other's company. On the day of our flight we were hoping we could stay in the Villa a bit longer since our flight wouldn't be for another 5-6 hours. Unfortunately another couple was coming in otherwise they would have been able to accommodate us. It would have been nice if they had an extra guest room/space that was available for those early check ins/late check outs like at some other resorts but they did their best to keep us entertained on our last day as well including showing us around town and villages before dropping us off at the airport. They did say they're planning on expanding the resort so maybe this is something they could have in the future! Overall, we would love to make a trip back and would definitely recommend Emaho Sekawa to anyone who asked. Vinaka!
