We spent six days at Safari Lodge as guests of the charming and knowledgable Warren Francis. Our goal was relaxation by learning to kiteboard and hopefully diving. Our first day on the island (which is remote and accessible by boat), Warren had us out with kites doing body drags and trying out the boards. With his little yellow boat chasing...

We stayed there for a couple of days and went on a dive with them. The room was good but the bugs everywhere!. We payed for the 3x a day meals as there is no shop to buy food on the whole island, so it's the only thing you can eat at all out there! The food was highly overpriced...

Safari Lodge has a laid back vibe to supplement all of the more exciting activities they offer. The staff are laid back but attentive, and make for a great stay. Diving with Safari Lodge is excellent and the reefs are incredible.

If you are going to kitesurf I trully recommend Nanui-ra Island but don't ever go to Safari Lodge. You can stay in the others accommodations in the island which you don't have to pay a totally over priced package. I made a mistake to book online for my accommodation only and when I got to the wharf and the rude...
