Stayed in Tambua Sands two times: in 2012 and 2016. Great small resort with cozy bungalows on the beach. It is not crowded resorts with hundreds people walking around. Here you feel like you came to visit friends. The people working there making this feeling very real. Enough activities, great snorkeling, good food. Exceptionally friendly service.

On arrival, we were received with a welcome drink, of orange juice, which really did come at the right time as it was so hot then. Soon after, we were escorted right to our room, which was simply beautiful, spacious, airy & most of all right in front of the beach. The sound of wave crashing & the wind whirling,...

Simple and roomy bures on a beautiful coconut lined, reef fringed beach; cooled by ceiling fans and fresh ocean breezes through plantation shutters. Glass enclosed, aircondiioned resort style box rooms and crowds are not our preference so we loved this place. We booked 3 bures for our family of six adults and four children on the beach. The staff was...

I literally agonized for months, on where to stay, when visiting Fiji. I was going to be alone, in this honeymoon paradise, so I was very specific about what I wanted. Tambua Sands did NOT disappoint. This resort provided everything I had hoped for, and more. From the moment I arrived, to that sad second, I had to part ways,...

I absolutely loved this place so relaxing and the first time I felt relaxed in Fiji. Got the beautiful reef and simple elegance of the bungalows with lovely sea breezes and right on the shore with palm tree beaches, dazzling coral beaches. Food was good but slow . The evening sunsets where exceptional. This place is rancho , relaxo !
