An intimate exclusive boutique resort with luxurious villas on the beachfront. Situated infamous Coral Coast in Fiji and run by a family with the personal touch. A tropical paradise and a holiday experience like no other. A peaceful retreat and an idyllic design that is the opposite of the large resorts - a place where you find one on one service, private chef, a large pool and a lounger you don't have to fight for. The list goes on. Best of all is the opportunity to reset, unwind and recharge in a flawless and unblemished location. The perfect opportunity for down time, family time or simply just time for just me

We would recommend this place for its beautiful and comfortable bures and fantastic location (direct on the beach, great beach if you like to snorkel, very nice and romantic peer 5 min away from the residence, great swimming pool). You can see baby shark (not dangerous at all!)

Vinaka vaka levu Thanks for the great review it is wonderful and great place facilities location beach as you say. Our baby sharks that are on the doorstep are a delight to everyone. Often they can be seen from your balcony basking in the sun. The snorkelling sunsets not to be missed. Thankyou for recommending the place. The large pool is a delight to all guests and in this weather certainly used day and night. We are all little confused that you thought you were double booked? You were not. What Sai explained was she was upgrading you FOC which often do for guests when we can and what she said was she will have no issue selling your room as we are so busy. Which she did the very next day. Infact we had two empty that night you came. Thanks for feedback on menu I had discussed your feedback with staff. They need to take care when listening and advising recommendations as you did not like many of Fijian options on menu. Thats why we are such a varied menu most people like to try new things and still have option of standard reasonable priced dishes. Vinaka vaka levu Hope to see ee you again

We arrived by rental car and the first point to note is the hotel isn’t in Sigatoka, it’s about 25 minutes drive away in a village called Maui Bay (gas station, small supermarket, couple of cafe/ restaurants attached to lodges). We found it ok though you have to look for an

Vinaka for your lovely review. It was lovely having you and we thankyou for all your lovely comments. You mentioned a small pool i dont think you were referring to the main pool which is over 25 metres with a spa plunge at the end. I think maybe the foot pools may be what you are describing. They can collect a few leaves over the day but as you will notice cleaned every morning. We have no time frame on closing the main areas always wait for guests some nights open to 3 or 4am. Staff zre very good no issue. Even though you stayed in our cheapest room we are pleased you the place good value mue. Please do come again. Thank you Annemarie and team at de Vos the Private residence.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at DeVos and although we had difficulty in finding the property, it was really worth the effort. Our beachfront bure was spacious and comfortable and we spent many hours relaxing on the verandah looking out to sea! The meals were great as was the

Bula Vinaka, It was great having you stay and a pleasure to meet you. Thankyou for your review it is guests as yourselves who help make the place soo great! Being hidden away makes the place that much more special our own private paradise. The sea views the privacy the marine reserve add to the unique stay.

At the bottom is a list of how this stacks up against other places we stayed while in wonderful Fiji. Being Fiji, anywhere you stay is going to be great; nothing should totally ruin the experience, because the people and landscape are just too amazing. de Vos, the Private

How do you get from airport? Is it near other resorts
A taxi is quite expensive so we travelled from the airport by coach (it is air-conditioned), takes around 2 hours, lots to see from the coach and comfortable. From memory is was around $8.50 Fj per person. Our flight from Auckland arrived around 1.pm so we caught the coach that pulled in to the Airport around 4.00, I had arranged with de Vos to have dinner there so there was no stress at all. We also caught the coach back to the Airport to come home. The two coach lines are Sunbeam and Pacific, Google their timetables. Once at de Vos we used the local bus etc, be wary of the mini vans, the drivers are lunatics but if you like fast and furious then they are ok!!! de Vos is a beautiful place to holiday. You need to make sure the bus driver knows to let you off at the Maui Bay wall just before the supermarket. Also, the closest Resort is Naviti which can be reached by walking along the beach. Outrigger etc are further away.

"Rooms with plunge pools offer the best views."
"The beach front Villas are definitely worth paying extra!!"
"Ask for a villa as there are upstairs rooms in the main house but these are not on the water outside of your room"
"The mango hill room, is pretty average, I think probably should be last choice out of all rooms."
"The garden rooms are perfect!"
