A wonderful low key resort . We stayed for 8 nights and wished we had booked for more. Spacious rooms, we had the Deluxe King room at the rear of the property, nice and quiet with the sound of the waves at night breaking on the coral reefs over the road. Very relaxing. Staff were very friendly and welcoming at all times. The resort is small enough (25rooms) for them to get to know your name by the second day, a lovely personal touch. Upon arrival the house band come up to you at reception and sing you a Fijian welcome song accompanied with guitar and ukelele. On our last night they sang us a farewell song in Fijian with most staff joining in, surrounding our table. Just amazing! We ate nearly all our meals here..an extensive menu with very reasonable prices, with specials every day which always included several seafood options using locally caught fish. We ate our way through a large proportion of the dishes throughout our time there. Everything we ordered was fantastic! The chef there really knows how to cook interesting food and cook it well. My only quibble was the continental breakfast which we pre-ordered when booking the trip. It could be improved by offering a choice of bread for toast, the only option was white sliced bread. Wholemeal, multigrain or sourdough should be on the menu. Also, the small prepackaged ration of muesli was definitely on the light side. A larger portion would have been welcome. A variety of fresh locally grown fruit was always delicious, especially the sweet, ripe papaya and pineapple. The resort has a terrific happy hour every evening, and this was a great opportunity to buy half price drinks, try the cocktails..I reccomend Mai Tais- delicious! And the house band play and sing throughout the whole evening, including dinner. Their voices are beautifully melodic, they will distract you from your meal. Don't be shy- they will happily sing any requests. The hotel has a pool which is small but large enough to swim short laps. There are kayaks available to use in the lagoon. Be aware there can be stonefish in the sea here. I nearly stood on one close to shore. They bury themselves in the sand and their camouflage makes it extremely difficult to see them. Wear thick reef shoes even when swimming or snorkelling. When walking in the water, use a shuffling gait so if they are present, the shuffle will disturb them and they will swim away. The long stripey 'snakes' you see in the seagrass are harmless Medusa sea worms.They don't move very much and are hollow, they eat the microscopic sealife that sluices through their bodies. They can be 1-2metres in length! We really enjoyed our stay at Bedarra, and would heartily recommend this resort. We plan upon returning in the near future. A wonderful, relaxing, welcoming place.
