I went solo to Volivoli. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The grounds are lovely. The room (a Studio Vale) was spacious with an inspiring view. The diving out at Bligh Waters was world-class, making the 45 minutes out and back well worth it. My dive master, Solo, was outstanding. About all I can say negative would be the very slightly...

Very generous rooms and each has a great view of the sunset over the ocean. Pool area is great too. Food and service amazing. Drive from Nadi wasn't anywhere near as tough as we had read in some other reviews.

Great service from friendly staff who do their utmost to help. The resort is small and intimate so no overcrowding. Diving was a bit expensive but the outer reefs were wonderful and worth it.
