“An amazing place with all you need.”

Our group of 12 adults from 2 families stayed at Shambala late October/early November 2016 for 11 nights. This property is amazing from the minute you walk through the front door. Our wonderful host Dani met us and showed us around. She was fantastic and was on hand to organize anything from taxis, village tour, snorkelling trip, Fijian dancers, airport transfers and even dinner reservations. We used the chef Prmal a lot during our stay for dinners. We enjoyed all of his meals especially the seafood buffet, chinese buffet and the Lovo dinner. Thanks to Prmal also for his help during the day, he even drove and got us some bread one day, when we realized after just coming home we didn't have any. Thanks also to Sileshni and her lovely staff who cared for the house during our stay, the ladies were always very friendly and helpful. The actual house itself is beautiful and has everything you might need. The house is set on the beautiful Coral Coast, so swimming, snorkelling, paddle boarding and canoeing is all at your fingertips in the crystal clear water. The gardens of the house are lovely and tended to by Felise, he does a great job. Thanks again Dani for an amazing trip and you made our first trip to Fiji an unforgettable experience.

“Absolute Heaven”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed for a week at Shambala in October when we went to a wedding. The place is absolutely beautiful in a fantastic location. Every amenity at Shambala was first class and the locals who provided the service of our cleaning, cooking and massage were so so accommodating. We would go back to Shambala in a heart beat and hope to do so in the future. Cannot speak highly enough of this beautiful place.

The pictures of this property do not do justice to how good it is. The host, Dani, could not have been more helpful - from responding quickly and accurately to even giving us a lift to Sigatoka to go to the markets. Dani, along with her marvelous staff made this an enjoyable holiday. There is a supermarket just a 10 minute walk away for anything you may need. The outlook across the lagoon to the coral reef is spectacular and the facilities provided excellent. Why cook yourself when the lovely Sileshni can cook you a meal. Definitely a return location.

“Memorable Family Celebration!”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Shambala is a wonderful place to celebrate life with extended family or friends. So lucky to go there for Granny's 70th with all our family[14] gathered, from NZ and Norway. Beautiful place, roomy and wonderful house maximising special position on the beach. The staff were simply wonderful, friendly, warm and so willing to make our stay as fabulous as possible. Couldn't have asked for more. Danielle marvellous to deal with,going the extra mile & nothing too much trouble. Would have loved less rain and more sunshine but maybe next time! Vinaka vaka levu to you all.

“Luxury and privacy while close to the Coral Coast attractions and resorts.”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Bula ! Andersons
My family spent 10 days relaxing and enjoying Shambala as our secure and private base. Its locaion at Maui Bay allows for short journeys
to resorts for fine dining
or the local cheap bus to Eco cafe for your fat fix on the beach
or trips to Singatoka to shop or watch the local Rugby,
or a local village tour with Kava ceremony, the beautiful waterfall,
local links to fishing charters, with golf for every level available, but a very special course is only 45 minute drive away. I have not even mentioned Kayaks and snorkeling gear, reef shoes, golf clubs, fishing gear all available at Shambala. The freedom Shambala gave us made for a more enjoyable holiday with the grown family than we would have had at a large resort nearby. The staff are wonderfully helpful and the Fijians are a friendly people.
I would have given Shambala 5 stars but unfortunately next door has become a building site and the noise is inescapable at times. I believe this is temporary.

Bula to you too! Thank you for choosing Shambala for your special birthday/family getaway! As they sing in Fiji "Happy Long Life To You...". We are so glad you enjoyed the house and nearby activities. I too look forward to the new construction activities ending, but thankfully they are temporary and I truly apologise again for their interruption.
Vinaka and warm regards,
Danielle & the friendliest team around ;-)
