Value
Lawaki Beach House is a locally owned eco tourism enterprise with a total of 10beds. It opened in 2003. The managers/owners are Sam & Christine, a Fijian-Swiss couple (we speak english, german and fijian). Sustainability and environmentally friendly management, a low impact on local culture and tradition are an ongoing concern for us. All guests are on a full meal plan. We have our own spring water and organic garden. The resort is powered by solar energy.

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.

This is the perfect spot for someone who wants delicious meals prepared by someone else, an exceptional snorkeling spot right out the front door and a quiet atmosphere for relaxing. The bures are basic but comfortable and the common lounge is a fine place to sit and read a book. Christine and her husband are wonderful hosts with a goal of making you feel at home. Don't miss getting a massage! It was a perfect place for us to end our 2 week vacation on 3 different islands in Fiji. However, if you are looking for a fancy resort with lots of activities and wifi, this is not for you. This is the place to snorkel, stroll on the beach, eat well and "veg out."

If spending hours snorkelling marvelling at the marine life at high tide, walking along the beach looking for eels and octopuses at low tide, enjoying the bird and insect life and generally chilling out in the peace and tranquility of a place with lush jungle slopes as a backdrop and beautiful ocean views in front of you - this is the place for you! Add to that mix the wonderful food - both Fijian and European - and relaxed conversations with the lovely owners and staff, and the the result is an unforgettable escape. Owners Sam and Christine have created a wonderful retreat for nature lovers with a Marine Protected Area a few steps away where you can snorkel off the beach with ease. Despite the warm water, we decided to pack our spring suits for snorkelling and did not regret it as we were then able to snorkel for 2 hours at a time for maximum enjoyment. We were very glad to take the Lawaki boat transfer with Sam, especially as one of the crossings was somewhat rough and the small local boats were quite full and not covered. Sam and Christine are generous hosts who are happy to share their considerable knowledge and life experiences. It was a privilege to be present at Sam's birthday celebration and share the delicious food from the traditional lovo, and to hear the beautiful voices singing a Fijian hymn. Big thanks to Mela, Buna, Miri, Saeni and Senekau for taking care of us and especially to Alumeci and Serema for the delicious food that they prepared for us. Serema also kindly shared her knowledge of Fijian culture and traditions and also gives great massages.

We simply had THE best time in Lawaki beach House which is home to Christine and Sam. It absolutely made our time in Fiji. We stayed for a week and I only wish it had been longer. It is such a beautiful place with our bure looking out on a Marine protected beach where our snorkelling excelled our experience on the Great Barrier Reef. Christine, Sam and the wonderful women who looked after us so well provide a Fijian experience not to be missed. The food was wholesome, fresh and tasty. The massages were gorgeous under a tree by the water and such good value. The bure was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. I was so chilled leaving. I cannot wait to return. This is a paradise I would like to keep secret and all to myself but decency to Christine and Sam prevents me from doing so!

We were the first post-Covid guests at Lawaki in March ’22 and were the only guests for our stay of 3 nights which was perfect. We enjoyed chatting with the staff, especially Sereima, watching rugby with Sam (we're still watching: the Fijiana Druna just won the Championship!), snorkeling off the beach, and just relaxing. The food was great (especially the lobster and fresh chutneys!). The accommodations were perfect for our family of 3. The snorkeling here is really good, and while the drop off had healthy coral with a vast array of fish and even a passing white tip reef shark, the shallows might have been our favorite here - so many different species of juvenile fish! and there were turtles grazing in the mornings. As usual in Fiji, if you make any effort to get to know them, they will be happy to share and laugh with you and be the highlight of your stay!

We (2 adults) stayed here for 5 nightst and loved it. Well maintained resort, individual solar in each bure, hot water in shower (not a given at many remote locations), good fan in room, comfortable beds. All hand cooked meals (Indo-Fijian) were excellent. Very good snorkeling right off shore at the 'house reef', free kayaks, nice sandy beach for hiking at low tide. Friendly, knowledgable hosts! Recommended!

We simply enjoyed every minute of our 6 days stay. The Bungalows are simple but comfortable with ensuite bathrooms and hot showers, and there are only a few of them. So you can have as much quiet and privacy as you like. It is a little slice of tropical paradise right at the beach. You can just walk straight into the ocean for a swim or snorkel along the really nice house reef. We've seen our first nudibranches ever here.
The food is out of this world and a perfect Fijian-Swiss fusion.
The hosts, Sam and Christine, and their staff make everyone feel welcome and well looked after.
Christine and Sam also have a lot of knowledge about Fijian history, way of life and the natural environment, and we found it really enlightening talking with them and listening to their stories.
A real gem of a place. We are so happy that we found it!

Our family of 5 had an awesome time at Lawaki. we loved snorkelling and taking walks along the beach. The food was healthy, fresh and delicious (we loved the pumpkin soup!), and we loved that they had their own organic garden. Christine, Sam, and all the staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. Definitely recommend!

Bula vinaka Christine, Sam and all the wonderful staff at Lawaki Beach House !! My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights and fell in love with this beautiful slice of paradise. Snorkelling in the marine protected reef was a huge highlight for me. Lawaki prioritise the health and protection of the reef which was evident in the eclectic mix of marine life - turtles, hard and soft corals, reef sharks, starfish and oh so many fish!

The food was another huge highlight! On our second night, we were lucky enough to have a Fijian Lovo. It was wonderful to be a part of this traditional Fijian feast - and gosh was the food delicious!

Vinaka vakalevu - i couldnt recommend Lawaki Beach House highly enough!

Absolutely amazing. Christine, Sam and their beautiful family and friends offer an amazing experience. The food, the friendliness, the setting, the snorkelling. The best. All I can say is book longer than you think you should because you will not want to leave. The Lovo was so very special and unexpected. The homemade relishes and pickles delicious !!
Vinaka Christine and Sam and all your beautiful helpers. We loved our time with you and everything you did for us. We will be back one day xxx

What a fabulous destination. It had been our first visit to Fiji and of course first time to Lawaki resort. The resort is fantastically run by Christine and Sam and their wonderful team. The food is fantastic and the snorkeling sublime. Managed to see turtles and all sorts of wonderful fish and coral. We will definitely be coming back and highly recommend the place to people wanting a special treat.
