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.

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,...

A solid family holiday at castaway. There's plenty to do for the kids. Try the beach dinner and head out to cloud 9 for pizza and beers. We took the jet skis which provided fun on the way out and back.

We had a wonderfully relaxing time here, simply swimming, eating and sleeping in paradise. Our Beach Bure was very roomy and recently renovated, perfect to come back to relax after spending hours at the beach or the pool. The family pool was a great place for children as it was totally shaded. The food was excellent and a variety of...

My husband, 4 year old and 1.5 year old stayed here for 5 nights in November 2016. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough for a fabulous family holiday. Worth every penny.
