To put it simply, staying with Tribewanted was the best two weeks imaginable. It's a true piece of paradise, and if you're considering it, you must do it. The cultural experience can't be put into words. The tribe treats you like royalty, while at the same time treating you like one of their own. They are the friendliest group of...

If you want to get back to the joy and simplicity of island living in a safe, friendly, culturally rich way then this is the perfect opportunity to do it. First class luxury in the stereotypical way it is not, but, if falling asleep to the sounds of the waves, learning to sing and dance with wonderful Fijian joviality, discovering...

Well I'd read all the websites, followed the story for several years before I had the courage to give it a go. I'm not your backpacker type and really don't do camping, 3 star is roughing it so all my friends were hugely amused when I said I was going to an island with no power or water. Oh how...

Captivating, unique, inspiring, life-changing, soul-shaping, beautiful, chilled, remote, peaceful. An eco-tourism, cross -cultural haven. Let the local fijian villagers tell you a few stories, drink grog, meet Tui Mali-chief of the region, visit a local school, play volleyball with the locals, learn how to weave coconut thatch roof, help with the work of the fijian community in building and maintenance,...

Off beach reef snorkling, total cultural immersion, traditional food and such wonderful people that they change your life, Vorovoro is not everyone's idea of paradise but it is now my benchmark. To get the most from the experience, and it is an experience, means diving in and letting the pacific and the Fijian culture wash away who you were to...

Oh where to start as I am still bubbling over with pleasure of it all. I told my husband on the phone from the island, that even if I were to take a thousand photos I could not impart the atmosphere and emotions and it proved right. I have in fact taken 450 photos so he has the general idea....

A fantastic eco-adventure. The dream of living on an island, in a beach hut, in a community of intelligent, like-minded, talkative, welcoming individuals. You become totally immersed into the culture and values that imbue the Tribewanted ideal and the fijian community that makes it possible. Took part in ceremonial aspects of a fijian life style and gained a reverence for...

Imagine an island with no cars, no shops, no bars or clubs. Nightly camp fires and grog sessions with the sweetest music and song under the stars.
