Outstanding food, staff, attitude and service. Everything was perfect. The dive sites are the best of Fiji for soft corals (better than what I have seen of Namena) and they also have incredibly beautiful hard corals. Be ready for a color overload! Alice the dive instructor is

Bula Janet. Thanks for your booking:-) Taveuni is the easiest but we can also accommodate transfers from Savusavu. Fiji Link has daily flights from Nadi to both destinations and Northern Air can now also accommodate Nadi-Taveuni via Suva. Just go onto their websites or let me know if you need help with anything.

Bula, 1.Yes, our accommodation are for couples as well. We have 4 bure with Queen beds and private bathrooms as well as Jungle Tents with double beds and shared bathrooms. 2. If you never dived before you can do a Discover Scuba and if you like it you can move on to you Open Water Certificate. You can snorkel right off our beach or just relax:-), walk to neighbouring beaches.... 3. There are definitely enough things to do for a 7 night stay, romantic candle light dinner, sunset cruise, pamper yourself in our beach SPA, hiking, snorkeling, sunrise walks..... You will definitely be at the right spot to relax, get pampered and be romantic:-) Viola
