We all absolutely loved our stay at Shambala. I have stayed many places in Fiji of all different types. This is 1 of the best. The friends that came with me fell in love with Fiji and Shambala. We all will be back. The pictures do not do this wonderful place justice. We all felt so relaxed and comfortable. The staff were great ( more like friends than staff) and always happy and smiling.
We all like cooking and found almost everything we desired in the kitchen.
Joel was wonderful to deal with. Although we didn't get to meet him. Maybe next time.
The location is amazing - the beach is right on the doorstep. What a way to start the day with stand-up paddle boarding and snorkelling before breakfast and then lazing the day away around the pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful and provided fantastic Fijiian flavoured food. The house felt like we were staying in a resort however needs a bit of maintenance as there are some areas that are a bit tired.
All our group thoroughly enjoyed the week that we stayed and would thoroughly recommend to others.
Had the pleasure of staying here during October School Hols. Located approx. 25 mins from Sigatoka on the majestic Maui Bay/Coral Coast . The location of this property behind a walled complex of several holiday homes is great - with a Supermarket (fairly well stocked for rural Fiji supermarket- probably geared to the many holiday home rentals located nearby, Also gas station and ATM if required.
There is a sandy little beach with excellent coral and reef directly of the back lawn.
The facility offers both kayak/stand-up paddle boards. The layout of this generously sized holiday home is great with the central living pavilion and en-suited bure's allowing each their personal space, the separate kitchen was great as we BBQ most nights. Our host Joel organised a meat order/delivery the day we arrived , great. The swimming pool was well utilized and fortunately the weather did the right thing - 28-32 degs. most days . down to about 22 at nights. The house staff were very welcoming , friendly and did their best to keep all happy including the grandies during our stay. The only negative - would be the building, facility is showing signs of age and we did encounter a couple of issues , which our Host Joel did respond to immediately - I am sure some maintenance and rejuvenation would bring this holiday home back to it's best. The location and relaxed vibe certainly allowed us all to feel rejuvenated , Vinaka Shambala.
We just had the most amazing holiday in beautiful Fiji.
Joel was a great host & gave us great info on the area.
The house was everything we wished for our group of 6adults & 6kids.The kids enjoyed the pool & the beach.
We loved having our own kitchen,so we had a few BBQ & it was so well stocked.
Special thanks to all the girls who went above & beyond for us. You were so helpful with our kids & always had smiles on your faces.
We are already saving to come back!
