We have been back to Navini twice since I last reviewed.
The same happy smiling, helpful staff were there to look after us thank you all.
Expected to see a difference after TC Winston but you would not know it had happened, everything was looking good.
So many wonderful changes .
Renovations commenced on our last trip are now almost complete with 8 of the now 11 bures renovated and redecorated. So tastefully done. The bathrooms spacious. Two new king bed bures with outdoor showers and gazebos with daybeds, created from the old 'villa', Windows moved to take in the beautiful view from bed to ocean. Bure one now has a new king bedroom with ensuite added. Really beautiful. Now families or couples wanting to share can do so with privacy in lovely 2 bedroom accommodation with renovated bathrooms and the option to add singles for more if needed.
The remaining 3 bures are a work in progress with only the bathrooms to be renovated.
Was delighted to find a couple in residence when we arrived that I recommended Navini to . They kept thanking me, it was just what they wanted and more. It is nice to get feedback. Its also nice to know this site is helpful.
Even though the reef is not what is used to be, due to mother nature, there is still so much to see, turtles, sharks, eagle rays, spotted rays and so many fish and yes the coral is growing back. The snorkeling trips, included in the tariff take you to some great snorkeling spots. Beautiful schools of pale pink jelly fish has us enthralled.
Met a few returnees who like us just love to come back and from the feedback we heard I think their will be many more from the first timers.
Food was excellent and a program to use Fiji grown where possible is underway and a Chef from the program was there offering some innovative ideas.
December won't come around soon enough for us. Moce.
