Tau Naigani Resort was devastated by TCW, and is unable to receive guests. We hope to commence repairs to the Resort soon. Naigani Island Resort is located on the north east of Fiji's main island of Viti Levu. Sixteen boutique plantation style bures accommodating up to 60 guests. In a beautiful tropical garden with turquoise lagoons, palm fringes white sandy beaches, and a virgin tropical rainforest filled with rare species of flora and fauna. Naigani Island Resort is an unspoilt, pristine 5 star diving destination that will restore body and soul.
Two nights and three days of relaxation started out with some bad instructions which found us at the wrong place for pick up but a bit of ingenuity overcame it. Accommodation was clean and adequate. Staff were helpful and friendly, mostly local villagers, with island time attitude. Some advertised activities were a non-event possibly due to lack of interest because there weren't many guests. The waters were crystal clear for snorkeling on the northern side of the island and the highlight of our stay. There was issues over billing with quoted prices and actual prices being different so that took some time to sort out on departure. Extra drinks were added to our room bill after we had signed for it. Meals were basic but good. The island has since been damaged during Winston and refunds for deposits due to cancellation haven't been forthcoming so attention to office management and finance were the key issues faced and seems they still are.
You leave with a smile on your face, even with all the mishaps. The Fijian personality saves the day. But owners and managers need to take a serious look at some of the infrastructure, and in particular the management. The rooms are basic and most of them don't have fans that work. We were not the only family to have to congregate in the living room at night to sleep under one fan. We lasted one night and asked to change rooms which they were able to do. I took the fan with me! There are major issues with mosquitoes and flies. But to top it all off, we hired a boat for a fantastic afternoon of fishing...we had a blast. On our last night we had a wonderful fish meal, fresh and tasty! So the next day we asked the chef for her recipe before we collected our hard won catch to take home with us. Surprise! Our fish had been served to all the guests staying at the resort. Do not expect you boat to leave or arrive from the dock on time, we waited 1.5 hours! Otherwise, there are kayaks to use at your leisure, we went around the whole island and it was amazing, took about 1.5 hours. There is also a beach around the left side of the island, we took our snorkels and packed a snack and paddled out...it was beautiful, had it all to ourselves. This is a great location, but the owners and management do not seem to be concerned about the state of the place...it deserves attention...and could be wonderful! Manuel never turned up but Langi and Ben and the boat captain kept us smiling :)
We stayed at Naigani for 4 nights. Had we not committed to other activities we would had extended our stay at Naigani.
The biggest USP of this place is its people, across the board. They go the extra mile in taking great care of you. My kids didn't want to leave this place.
Naigani has an excellent dive master (they have 16 dive sites) in Shirley. She is very helpful and ensures that you get the best possible care. All the staffs are great.
The place is not an upmarket resort but is a decent place to stay, quite remote. It is soooooo peaceful. We had good swims, went for the mountain hike, island tour, swim at the amazing picnic beach, levuka trip, and island visit.
Strongly recommended as we will be back ourselves next year.
We just spent a week on this very untouched original resort on a very remote postcard island, even though the staff were very friendly they were too layback when it came to what we call security for example we couldn't get keys for our Bure no matter how many times we asked the management and the only safe we had access to was in the reception office, not very handy. Anyway without bagging the resort we won't be back as the Bure gives timeshare units a bad name after using timeshare for over 25 years.
