What to come for: - wind sports - friendly, laid-back, collegial and familial atmosphere - wholesome simple meals - activities (kayak, walking, trail running, snorkelling, diving) - clean, simple, comfortable rooms What not to come for (what there isn't): - overzealous 'Bula' greetings from staff - traditional dances and kava ceremonies - manicured gardens - carefully, tastefully, romantically ornamented rooms...

This place is more of a backpacker place with an exclusive resort price tag! If still want to revisit the spot but stay and found out McDonalds and Bethams . I read all the comments; I agree and disagree with both parts. I was there for a week with my family last and will never go back to Safari Lodge.... More

I went back for a second holiday at Safari Lodge over the new year period. Again I thoroughly enjoyed it. Again a lot of wakeboarding, kayaking and SUPing. All the gear is right there on your door step. This time I even started to learn kite surfing. Unfortunately the wind dropped after a couple of days and I didn't quite... More

We stayed at the Safari Lodge for three nights and did three dives around The Passage. The location of the lodge is perfect, right on the water with a hill to it's back.

Okay, so we have just done 2 weeks around Fiji mainland and out to the Mana island. Unfortunately, we did not have a great experience at Safari Lodge. It is still a nice place, but we just felt a bit ripped off when we left. Wifi was $20 a day which may be okay if you were working all day... More
