Shaan and the team made my 50th birthday great. The whole family stayed at the villa for a week. There are all the facilities you need (and everything is really well maintained) to have a great holiday - relaxing by the pool, canoeing, reef walking, family movie nights or just relaxing in the hammock. Nothing is too much trouble for them and I recommend the catering option for at least a few meals. The food at the villa is up there with anything you get elsewhere.
Out of the Blue is a wonderfully unique gift to any traveller. I run personal development retreats for women at major crossroads in their life and they come to heal. The home, it's location, the energy, the staff and the view are a major part of the success I have with my groups. Last year was phenominal and I came back this year hoping it would be as good. It was better. Jerry is our Chief. He looks after us as if we are his own family.
I cannot recommend OOTB more highly if I tried. We are booked to 2020 now and I'm excited for the next group who decide to come with me.
Hot Tip: Get involved with the team and meet their families and see their villages. You will be better for the experience.
Out of the blue was an absolute highlight for my trip to Fiji. It was the first place we stayed and our whole party wished we had booked all our nights there.
We arrived to discover a beautiful house, well kept, spacious rooms right on the sea front.
But the main highlight for us was the staff, the girls were friendly and very efficient in tidying our rooms, but Manu and Jerry, gosh what to say!
I think we have made more family. Jerry was an excellent host, we got to see Fiji in all its realness which was a very humbling experience.
We are all so grateful to have met Jerry and Manu and we all think you have an absolute gem as a host! He needs a pay rise! From walking us to breakfast, taking us to Suva for a rugby game, and his village, we were well looked after. Nothing was an issue, everything was “Fiji time” and we loved every moment.
If you stay at Out of the Blue, I highly recommend not relaxing by the beach, but embracing the Fijian culture, getting involved and trying new things.
We will be back! I will be recommending this house to everyone! We were very satisfied and loved every moment. Thank you Jerry and Manu and the lovely girls! We will miss you x

(Part of the Georgie and Ben wedding group)
stayed for 7 days celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary along with our eldest son, his wife and 3 grand children ages 19,8 and 5.Location is fantastic, great layout for a family getaway but, has some maintenance issues.Staff were very friendly and helpful though busy with cleanup from recent storms.
We stayed for 8 nights in April for my wife's 50th birthday celebration along with our two daughters, their partners and our 1 year old grandson.
A holiday is what you make of it, and although the weather (Cyclone) was not as you see in the postcards, there are some things out of everyone's control, but you change things up and embrace it.
House has everything you need plus more. The generator kicked in and we were none the wiser the whole streets power was down from the cyclone.
While it was the house and location that drew us to book, the everlasting memories will be to the Outoftheblue team Gerry, Manu and Georgie who felt like they were part of our family.....very sad to say goodbye
Nothing was too much trouble, and they were discretely in the background but always available.
Gerry organised a special dinner party for my wifes 50th at the house with a chef, singers, fire dancers in a wonderful finale to our stay.
Definitely recommend Outoftheblue.
