Bula Vinaka Tania.. Thanks so much for taking the time to acknowledge your stay with us.... on TripAdvisor.

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 !

Bula Vinaka Peter .. Thank you so much for capturing Tambua in a nutshell.. We are extremely pleased that you found it to be "the first time I felt relaxed in Fiji." The food can be slow at times but we do prepare from scratch nothing is precooked or cooked off.. and if it is busy we hopefully advise a...

Excellent, laid back but attentive, friendly staff, brilliant situation. I wasnt quite sure about the road to start with, but completely forgot about it after a short time. Enjoyed the dinners, and lunches, all very good food. One comment that might be looked at - to make the lunch menu a bit less 'western standard'? Can't fault the dinner menus...

We stayed here for two nights after doing some islands hopping. We were impressed with the bures and the facilities. Our hot water didn't work in our first room so we were swiftly moved to a beach front bure. The food is good, more money than we had previously paid in Fiji (double compared to Nadi) but higher quality. The...

What a beautiful location. The beach is one of the best I have seen on Viti Levu, absolutely gorgeous. The resort itself is simple with older style bures lined up along the beach. The rooms are spacious and comfortable enough. The restaurant was a disappointment though. Bland, greasy food and the ambiance didn't invite to stay longer than needed. We...

As return guests (and an ex-local) who much prefer the intimacy and charm of small boutique resorts, my wife and I (along with 43 family & friends) were excited to have held our 'deliberately laid back' island themed wedding at Tambua Sands in mid October.
