It's not an overstatement to say this was a holiday of a lifetime. both my wife and I are seasoned travellers and I have never felt the urge to immediately book another holiday the day after we've left as much. Our beachfront bure was immaculate, the food was awesome, the staff unreal and the island and activities out of this...

We stayed for nine nights at this exceptional resort on Castaway Island. As a family of five their five people bures (thatched bungalows) are perfect. We spent our days at the beach or pools enjoying this paradise island. The beaches and sea are beautiful with an excellent house reef for snorkelling. Non-motorised water sports were all free on our package,...

Decided to take a day-trip to this wonderful island. The scenery was stunning, the food fantastic. Next time I visit it will be to stay for at least two days and nights. All the staff were most helpful and attentive to our requirements. The island offers snorkelling, kayaking and boasts an excellent swimming pool.

Be ware the Fiji workers set up selling wood carvings. We bought a piece on the Tuesday morning and was told to return to collect it that afternoon. When we returned that day and every other day until our departure on the Sunday the wood carver had vanished into thin air. Resort staff informed us each day a manager would...

Bula, Thank you for your email. I was very concerned to hear of your incident regards the woodcarver. I have since spoken with the woodcarver and he has advised that he rushed off the island on Tuesday afternoon after receiving a message of a sudden death in the family. He also mentioned he had completed the piece on Tuesday and...

Castaway island is the Fiji that you imagine - beautiful blue water, coral, palm trees and sand. We stayed in the family bure with another family and it was comfortable for all 9 of us. The kids loved walking straight out onto the beach and snorkelling. This also seemed to be the more sheltered side of the island. Food on...
