To combine Navini with Yasawas or Vanua Levu or mainland?

Our family will have 11 nights in Fiji in August and very few 2-bedroom accomodations are left now, we are clearely late. Our first 3 days are at small Navini island and we look for where to move next. Our options are Paradise Cove Resort (but only for 4 next nights unfortunately!), hotel at Vanua Levu (Savasi near to Savusavu) or oceanview villa between Naviti and Fiji Hideaway Resorts in several minutes from the beach. We are non divers and non-surfers with teenage daughter so good sand beaches, beautiful views and chance to snorkel at the beach are essential. With options so various I'm really a bit lost!)

Paradise Cove seems nice but a lot of expensive travelling. Savasi is most expensive itself, seems to be beautifully located but flights again. Villa is uncomparably cheaper and owner says a lot of marine life at thу beach. And we want to touch Fijean culture at lest a bit, maybe Vanua Levu gives such a possibility? Please help!)

Perhaps Octopus Resort in the Yasawas might be worth considering too instead of Paradise Cove owned by the same people it has a variety of accommodation to choose from and would be my preference. Navini can take you to meet the Yasawa Flyer at Beachcomber island pick up point which save a trip back to the mainland for the transfer. Koro Sun on Vanua Levu is lovely but you will be spending quite a lot of money on transfers, why not have a look at Wananavu Resort near RakiRaki to the north of Viti Levu they too have a choice of accommodation and is in a very lovely location with amazing views over the smaller islands offshore it is an interesting drive seeing a lot of the countryside of Fiji, would save a lot on transfers and would make Paradise Cove more affordable if you aren't paying for airfares.

Many thanks! It seems that at least 3 weeks not our 11 nights are needed to see Fiji!))...

I agree 11 nights is a lnot a lot to do all you want. You could probably do 3 resorts in 15 nights.
