We were very happy on arrival, a refreshing welcome drink was a nice touch, our Frangipani bure exceeded our expectations - large and airy, no need for the air con, well appointed and all amenities to hand .

If you are someone who is interested in visiting the real Fiji and hearing its' story from people who live there, this is the place to stay !

Vinaka Vaka Levu, Thank you for your wonderful review this is exactly what we are after in achieving, there can often be confusion between having a 5 star holiday and the need to be in a large resort to achieve this. But often a 5 star is misleading people often think a large resort is required to achieve this but...

Bula and Vinaka, Thank you for your review and lovely description and very apt. It is always very difficult to describe the beachfront Bures and how close to the sea- ocean and the sunsets one step onto the sand.

We had a beach front villa. It was beautiful and spacious. The hosts are friendly and welcoming and the pool and public areas are relaxed and comfortable. A nice place to get away from it all. Breakfasts were sometimes a little interesting with meat pies and chocolate cake in the offering. There was only one other place to eat within...

The De Vos staff exceed the reviews; the friendliest, most helpful I’ve found. Nothing was too much trouble. The mix of detached bungalows with a separate, open lounge, dining and pool guest area is ideal. (a few steps away). The bungalows or bures are huge and absolutely lovely. I was looking at the sea through 2 walls of windows, even...
