Buddy and I did the 4 night 10-dive package and on the second day, tropical cyclone Winston decided to swing by. Long story short we got rescued at midnight by Ratu Kini workers who carried our bags in the middle of the cyclone to a new room. There's some solid customer service. Pros: Great staff, very positive Local owned Day...

Wouldn't recommend to anyone! Had some health issues and had to check out and end my holidays before the date and said I was happy to pay for the cancellation fee and had the rest of my money back, the management refused even after I sent them a print screen of their own cancelation policy. Unfortunately I didn't have any...

Pretty good resort for us because we had a cottage under the coconut trees on the beach and air conditioning and ensuite bathroom....and 3 meals a day.So what more could you ask for ?? Lots of friendly Fijians about too.

I didn't actually say here (stayed at the resort), but did spend a lot of time here for diving and just about every meal. Firstly it is very friendly. The service is relaxed (meaning slow), but the food it tasty and the beer is cheap (compared to the resort). It is right in the beach and is a great place...

Such a beautiful, friendly place which got better as my stay for 5 night progressed. I stayed in a garden bure with aircon and woke to the sound of birds having breakfast from the mango tree outside. The staff were amazing and their friendly and fun sense of humour made the evening entertainment such fun. The food was always tasty...

Our trip was for four days to get my open water licence. The experience was great and I had Shane as my dive instructor. A special shoutout to gus for his effort at limbo and his jokes. Diving, being new to it, it was definetly out of the normal but once you are underwater, it's like another world and it...

If you want to be on an island you could do worse than here. Meal plan and accommodation is good value when booked through hostelworld. Trips are ok and evening entertainment is a welcome distraction. However we were there for the Fijian night and it felt like we were not invited.

We used to come to Ratu Kini for lunches and dinners. Great food, friendly atmosphere and amazing company. Very reasonably priced and food and drinks. Beautiful location and can watch sunset from the restaurant. Haven't tried breakfast, but I think it's going to be just as good as other meals :))

I have a bad experience at this resort. Before I booked the resort, I have asked them by email, "how many times can I dive before leaving the resort?" They answered 3 times on the second day and 2 times can be done on the third day and I can leave at 11:30 after diving. So, I booked 5tanks and...

Oh where do I start. We are young family of 4 so we rented the beach family bure. It was basic and very spacious for Fiji standards and may I add gorgeous beach front. but... you can feel the springs digging into your back and the shower was somewhat questionable, dirty and with a trickle of super hot water.
