What a great time we had! So many wonderful moments and memories. Where else in the world can you reserve your very own private tropical beach for the day? Beautiful, empty, clean beaches are really the only thing we came for, having found Turtle Island by using Google Earth of all things. Turtle Island appeared to have multiple sandy beaches, which not many other Fijian islands appear to have. We didn’t do very much research prior to booking, figuring we didn’t want to set ourselves up for disappointment. We certainly weren’t disappointed. Only disappointment was we didn’t stay longer. Going down the traditional list of criteria (service, food, location, management, etc), Turtle Island excels in all areas. Can’t say it lacked in any department. They’ve been at this for awhile, and you can tell they know what they’re doing. We were pampered the entire time, food was delicious. They grow a lot of fruit and vegetables on the island, which was a treat having everything so fresh and flavorful. Rob and Landi were fabulous managers and gracious hosts. We enjoyed their dog, Zak who accompanied us on beach trips but only after he was invited- very well mannered! What we did not expect was the cultural experience we got. Granted, we are only experiencing one island. We felt the warmth of the Fijian staff and got to experience a few of their traditions (kava ceremony, songs, etc) which was neat. All staff were friendly and helpful. We appreciated how they accommodated our request to be on a beach every single day, sometimes two beaches in one day.
Turtle Island will be a tough act to follow for future vacations!

If you want to experience paradise personalized to you, Turtle Island is the place to visit. You will never find a place like this on the planet. The chef is excellent, the food is organic and high quality. The farming is eco-friendly. The sustainable practices on the island do not cut in the quality of your stay. The Bures are comfortable and spacious. The hot tub in the room is amazing after a long sunny soaked day.

The couple who manages the island are super friendly and the staff is absolutely amazing. Rob and Landi, thank you so much for all you do, including the marine life conservation effort! We know how much you provide and give back to the Fijian community and we feel extra grateful for that as your guests.

Our bure mama was keeping our wishes coming through daily. Her scheduled activities were super exciting, and slow paced at the same time during our stay. The dinner at the grill with a couple of the private guests of the island, the private dinner at Vonu Point and the quiet dinner on the pontoon just a two of us, made our stay sensual and super romantic. Imagine all of that while watching the Milky Way stretching right above your head.

Enjoyed our new private beach reserved just for us every day. Pristine turquoise water and bright white sand between our toes and lunch delivered. Long Beach is one of our favorite if we must pick one. We will never ever forget a trip to Turtle Island. We got married here and we returned to our wedding anniversary. Best place on earth for couples to celebrate life together.

You will have a cultural introduction to the Fijian life style 5-star style. You will be entertained, educated and pampered by your choices only while seamlessly you become part of the Turtle Family. We highly recommend this 5-star property with genuine and authentic hospitality of the Fijian people. You must book a stay on this property because it is a true bucket list treasure. Let Turtle Island stole your heart!

Room tip: Highly recommend Bure #2 and Bure #10 if you like hot tubs.

We had a too short stay at Turtle Island only 4 days. From the moment Mary and Peter meet you at the airport to the end we felt so looked after. Seriously, we travel - a lot - and the whole Turtle Island experience was like a dream from the people to the beaches. We never had to ask for a thing, our Bure Mama Lu was a mind reader and took very good care of us. We really can't gush enough. Oh and did I mention the island was the most beautiful spot on earth, white sands, crystal clear waters, we will keep going back, nothing compares to Turtle Island.
