This was our second time to the island. We are going back for a third time in three years. There is no way I can explain how great this place is. You must experience it yourself. The staff, who we will call family, make you feel as if you are royalty. The put you first in every detail. The exclusive beaches are just that, exclusive. The food is amazing and plentiful. Again just amazing!

“Once experienced, never forgotten”. That’s their tag-line and it could not be more true!! This was our second trip to Turtle Island. First time was 20 years ago. It was every bit as magical and beautiful this time as it was the first time. Fantastic people, food, beaches, and experiences. Highly recommend!!

Room tip: You REALLY get away from it all here. No TV, or cell signal and the only wifi is in the gift shop. It’s wonderful!

We can definitely say we've never stayed anywhere in the world quite like Turtle Island. The first views of the island are stunning, and we were greeted by song (how does the entire staff all have such beautiful voices!?) and physically carried to the beach (definitely many 'White Lotus' vibes here - take that how you will!). We knew from everything we read that Turtle Island was not going to be like anywhere else we had stayed, yet still we weren't prepared for how unique it was.

Firstly, the island and the bures are spectacular. Everything has that 'Fijian Dessert Island Paradise' feel - and from our first tour of the place it's impressive how self-sufficient the island is (from the gardens that provide the food on your table to the woodwork shop that provides the actual tables themselves). Our Bure (Tolu #3) was immaculate - steps from the beautiful turquoise waters and equipped with everything we could need. Our 'Bure Papa' Tommy was absolutely lovely and took phenomenal care of us.

We'd never done the 'All-Inclusive' resort thing, but this was the perfect place for it. The food, was immaculate (and SO MUCH OF IT) we kept praying for a bad meal just so we could stop eating so much (the Fijian day buffet lunch and three course dinner was a particular favorite). The dining options themselves are very unique, each day we were brought a picnic lunch to our own private beach - and each night we had the option of dining out solo (the pontoon dine-out experience is a must-do) or dining communally with the rest of the guests.

Which brings us to the communal experiences. There are never more than 14 couples (there were probably half that when we went) and over 125 staff, so the staff-to-guests ratio is crazy and they go out of their way to make you feel looked after. Turtle Island definitely goes all-in on the communal/family vibe, encouraging the guests to alternate between privacy and community, with games, dancing, events and nightly Kava Ceremonies with the staff (all of whom live on the island). Most of this time this can feel more like a summer camp than a resort (none of this is mandatory, though there can feel some pressure to join in). There's a powerful concerted effort from absolutely everyone at the resort to make you feel like 'family' and not a 'guest' and your mileage may vary on how effective this is, but what's definitely clear is that the entire staff is working so incredibly hard to create this environment and they themselves certainly are a family.

Lastly, the highlight of the entire experience - the private beaches. Every other day, you have the option (and we actually took advantage of this every single day while we were there) to be dropped off with food/drinks to one of their 7 secluded beaches around the island. This was absolutely incredible. To spend the better part of the day on a stretch of beach entirely your own truly gives you the sensation of paradise. More than anything else, this made the rather steep price tag worthwhile for a unique splurge we won't forget.

Room tip: The private beaches are wonderful (Devil's Beach is the best, so ask ahead of time to have that as one of your private beach days!)

From the moment my wife and I stepped onto the emerald beaches of Turtle Island, we were welcomed into a breathtaking sanctuary that was like a dream sprung to life! This resort is an oasis of love and luxury, perfectly nestled in the arms of Fiji's natural beauty.

But you know what truly enchanted us? The heartwarming people who treated us like we were part of their own family. Mama Elle, your nurturing spirit made us feel like cherished kin. Brother Maika, you're the brother we never knew we needed, always ensuring we were beyond comfortable.

Oh, and let's not forget Manager Yogita! You're the backbone of this paradise, orchestrating an experience that sings of excellence. Speaking of singing, our taste buds were serenaded by the culinary masterpieces of Great Chef Benni. Each dish was a symphony of flavor!

And, oh, the gift store! A treasure trove run by the delightful Mere, who guided us to find souvenirs that captured the very soul of Fiji. Then there's Barman Bose, the mixologist maestro who turned every cocktail into a liquid sunset.

Bill, you're the laughter guru! Your hearty laughs were the delightful soundtrack to our perfect days.

But the icing on the cake, quite literally, was my wife's surprise birthday cake. Crafted by the talented team, it was stunning—a work of art that tasted as divine as it looked. It turned an already extraordinary trip into a milestone celebration we'll never forget!

Leaving Turtle Island was the hardest goodbye, but we're comforted knowing that we're not leaving a resort; we're saying "see you later" to our newfound family. Thank you, Turtle Island, for making our stay an unforgettable chapter in the love story of our lives. We'll be back, and that's a promise!
