This year was my forth time to Fiji and my first stay on Castaway Island having previously stayed on other islands in the Mananuca group and elsewhere. Castaway is by far my favourite place in Fiji so far and I can't wait to return. This island is stunning with white sand, clear water and tropical vegetation, just what you want...

Reviewed 13 April 2017

Our third time on the island, although haven't been there in 3 years and pleased to say the place is still paradise and has not suffered at all for the change in ownership (now owned by Outrigger Resorts). Would recommend this particularly for families but a range of different guests were there and all blended in fine. Great holidays are...

Spent 3 nights on Castaway with wife and 2 kids (10 & 8). You are warmly greeted on arrival and shown your room. The staff walked us through and showed us around the resort and then on to our room. We had a standard Bure which looked like it had been recently renovated. The only thing my wife mentioned was...

Our group of four adults has just returned from a five day break on Castaway for a family wedding. We had a fabulous time celebrating with family and friends. The main beach was beautiful with crystal clear water and good snorkelling not too far out. We enjoyed using the kayaks that were freely available. The adult pool was large, a...

Visited Castaway for a family wedding. Beautiful environment. Some of the buildings need a little updating.The accommodation rooms are quite dark and require more storage. Food is good and I recommend the inclusive food package if you eat anything more than two small meals a day. The watersport facilities are good including three small catamarans, however when I asked to...

I am writing this review in hopes that it reaches the management team and they take serious action in putting attention towards making changes that I not only list but the concerns other visitors have made in their reviews.

We spent our honeymoon here 10 years ago and made sure to come back 10 years later because the water, the culture of the resort, the quality of guests and unique ambiance was worth both trips. Castaway experience spoils you for our places because of their attention to detail, like having fresh flowers in your room, the staff knowing you...

Stayed at Castaway for 5 nights with our 4yo son. We arrived around 7pm after our flight landed at 4.30pm. We got quickly checked in and then had dinner.

“All Bures are well positioned for a stunning view to the sea and cool breezes in the evening.”
  • Our Ocean View Bure on the island. Loved the bowl of water by the door to rinse your feet so no
  • To wake up to this view was such a delight. Just a few steps from our Bures we were on the beach
  • Inside our Bure in the evening. Makes you relax on entry
