We are strongly considering to book Qamea for our trip next year but I wanted to ask a few questions to the Fiji experts here..
I have been back through several posts and read many things about the resort.
I hear it can be quite rainy in the North vs other areas. June seems to be a good time of year to visit- we are looking to go the end of June.
What is the difference between the Honeymoon Villa vs Honeymoon Bure. I know the Bure has a private pool but other than that- is there any other benefit to have the Bure vs the Villa?
How is the bug situation in Qamea? Before anyone goes crazy here telling me about a tropical place- I know the tropics.. we have traveled to French Polynesia twice, Mexico several times and all over the Caribbean- so I expect some bugs- just not necessarily all over the rooms. I just like to be informed of what to expect.. are there going to be lizards in the rooms? I have read there are toads all around the resort- I am hoping they don't make their way into the rooms. Do I need to worry about Dengue?
How clear is the water by the resort? We do not scuba (we may think about getting certified) but most likely we will just snorkel- is the visibility good this time of year? I have read that a few people have seen sea snakes in the water around Qamea... are they in the deeper waters or do they tend to come to shallow areas too?
Are the tours/excursions included? I thought I read that waterfall tour, snorkel tours, village tours are included- but I read somewhere on TA that some tours cost additional.
With 7 nights in Fiji would you try to stay at 2 resorts (maybe split with another island) or would you just stick to Qamea the whole time. (we were hoping to go to Vatulele but it is a little too pricey for us for this vacation..) Maybe another choice though. We are traveling a far way from the East Coast - it will take us almost 2 days to get there so we are thinking 1 island, but just wanted to get other people's opinions..
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help! We are just trying to get some more information on Qamea before we decide for sure this is the place for our anniversary trip!
