Stayed here in October 2011 for business and absolutely loved it!! It is a hidden gem!! Must admit i didn't have high expectations but was very very pleasantly surprised! We stayed in one of the brand new garden Villas and it was more of a 5 star standard with lots of little luxuries!! It's such a great blend of people and accommodations!! Staff and service was brilliant!! Would have no hesitation in recommending this to all types of travellers - and will definately be staying here again.

Room Tip: Go for one of the new Villas

Just stayed there mid-December 2011. A rugby event was going on, with big names showing up. During the event, loved to learn from workers that the resort owner helps a lot the local community without publicizing it much. The resort tries hard to be as much "sustainable" as possible, which is a good thing. Uprising may not be the number 1 resort in Viti Levu (had minor problems with a shower in our bure), but definitely worth trying if you want your bucks to be spent on good causes and not only deep pockets.

We stayed at Uprising for 3 nights in december and the villa we stayed in was lovely. The beach was nice. The bar by the beach was our favourite spot watching the local ladies fishing at the end and enjoying a bottle of vonu. (I even got a fishing line from the fishing shop at the arts village the next day in the hope to catch something). The atmosphere in the hotel was good. The staff were nice but there were few occassions where some of the female staff were rude. It was like the whole thing was about them and not the customer. The pregnant lady who was the waitress there at the time was awesome though. Maybe the other female staff can get some tips off her on how its suppose to be done. Overall we enjoyed the stay at this pleasant resort and we plan to return to Uprising next time.

It was a really long drive from the airport to the Uprising and a few times there I thought we would never make it. When we did finally arrive it was well worth the long drive, stepping out of the minivan into a tropical oasis. First thought this is beatiful, very authentic looking. We booked into one of the new villas number 2 which was to die for. Hugh LCD TV which swivels around so you can watch TV in the bedroom or the loungeroom, plenty for room to laze on the couch or sit on the varandah out back which is right on the beach (stunning view), bathroom is a really good size with a massive shower head, the jewel of thevilla would have to be the stone incased outdoor shower, again with a massive shower head and direct access to the beach.Only downfall could have used a microwave. The continental breaky included was lovely, the lunch and dinner menu was OMG this is so so lovely!!! big serves, Sunday BBQ buffet lunch was awesome. All the staff are beautiful, friendly people. We stayed for 2 weeks and it was so relaxing and easy going, "I'm on FIJI time". Suitable for all, couples, families friends etc.

Uprising Beach Resort was a wonderful relaxing holiday for us. This small resort tries hard and achieved great success at providing a relaxing pleasurable experience for us. The GM and his staff could have not been more gracious and welcoming. Our villa in the new Admiral circle wasspacious, immaculate and well appointed. The attached open-air shower was a wonderful touch and a great place to rinse and dry swimsuits and snorkel gear.

Unlike bigger resorts we've tried further up on the Coral Coast that cater to the typical Aussie family with kids, UBR does not "activity" you to death. There are no blaring PA systems, over-amped music and non-stop activity schedules. The jetski activities are there if you want them, but the best adventure activities on Viti Levu were here at our doorstep - snorkeling trips, diving and white water rafting. We did them all and they were great! And unlike the Coral Coast, Pacific Harbor has real beaches you can swim from - regardless of the tide.

Location...With the Arts Village located practically across the road that includes a supermarket with grog shop, ATMs, restaurants and numerous souvenir shops, we found the UBR close to all the facilities we needed. The reception staff quickly arranged a FJ$3 taxi whenever we felt like avoiding the walk. This is a big plus compared to the closed environments of almost all the other resorts on the Coral Coast that we have experienced. The capitol, Suva, is also a FJ$50/40 minute taxi ride away and offers a great museum, restaurants and air-con shopping malls (if that's your thing).

As recent reviewers have noted, the bar and food service could improve. Meals for the price could also improve. But this is similar to our experiences of other resorts in Fiji and around the world. Service and food quality anywhere can be up and down depending on the season and staff load. Note to Whingers: Remember, it was Christmas. Staff shortages happen and Fijian culture is built around the family. If you have a complaint, tell the manager before you blast the place on Tripadvisor. Small resorts listen.

Well worth the extra miles from Nadi. We will return again. Bula venaka vaka levu!

Room Tip: Choose an oceanview burre/villa as the views of Beqa and Yanuka Islands are fantastic.
