Its quite a hike to get here from Nandi on a small 19 seater cramped stuffy plane for over an hour but well worth it when you get here. After a 20 minute car ride and 20 minute boat ride you arrive to welcoming smiles and singing. It is a wet landing so have pants you can roll up or...

From the minute you pull up to the island in the boat to the singing of staff to the very last minute you leave again to their song you will feel welcomed and at...

My husband Scott and I decided to take a somewhat last minute vacation to this wonderful resort, and goodness, did we have a beautiful time!

A dream come true, presented with the opportunity to travel to Fiji has always been a dream. But like most travel you just don't know what to expect. First know that the people of Fiji are welcoming. Never met a friendlier, more welcoming people. Fiji Airlines is an exceptional airline and highly recommend their business class service. Now to the...
