Short version: Please don’t go anywhere near Jovesa’s properties. It’s nothing like the pictures or the descriptions. Believe me and you will thank me.
Long Version: Me and my girlfriend booked the most expensive option called Ocean View spacious Eco-Cabin in YASAWA PARADISE! In reality, we were welcomed in an abandoned looking shack in the middle of nowhere. No windows to close and stop the rushing winds from the sea. No locking option on the door from outside. Conditions were appalling, hygiene was virtually non-existent and generally, the place looked really really run down. There is no golden-sandy-pristine beach with turquoise water as presented. The nearest suitable beach is on a 30-40 minutes jungle trek from the property. The sea was turbulent with lead-grey waves bashing on your doorstep with a sound making even thinking difficult.
We spend around 30 minutes to figure out what to do in this conditions and decided to cross the island looking for anything besides that. We find the only solution - begging for a cost cut offer for an accommodation at a high-end resort at the other side of the island. Fortunately, the people like all Fijians (besides the host) were really helpful and caring.
Тhe only thing left was getting our money from our host so we can pay at the resort. Which turns out to be impossible. Even spend only 30 minutes we were not able to get anything willingly from Sunrise Lagoon host. He declined every civilized attempt to cooperate and find some sort of agreement.
With our backs to the wall, we involved even Airbnb. Pointless.
I’ll cut the story short around here.
I don’t know and I don’t care how Jovesa will reply to this ‘accusations’ it doesn’t matter anymore. I know what we’ve been through being left on a remote island with the sun coming down in an hour and no phone or internet connection.
Piece of advice: For a little more than the price of Sunrise Lagoon property you can find perfect accommodation options in Nanuya Island Resort. Just check the Boathouse at Nanuya Island Resort and you'll know what I'm talking about. Electricity all the time, breakfast included, the mini market that Jovesa talks about is right there, the perfect Blue lagoon beach is in front of your door (not 40mins hike from Sunrise Lagoon homestay). They provide snorkeling gear (they even have the easybreath masks!!!), kayaks and paddle boards for free!

We stayed at sunrise lagoon for 7 days and had a brilliant time, the family were fantastic and the children were off school which made it even more enjoyable, food was good, huge homemade portions and Terry's cake was a definite highlight!

We stayed in the 11 bed dorm, very basic amenities but what else would you expect for a remote island homestay! You have very thing you need.

The activities on offer are good fun and are done with the family which makes it even more enjoyable, just remember that Fiji runs on Fiji time which includes the activities!

Would highly recomend and we hope to one day go back!
