Its been a few months since we ended our honeymoon at this resort in Fiji during the summer of 2010. What a great time we had. I'll try to hit on the key points that made our stay so great.
First, the staff is just so friendly and they made you feel like you were their family. Whether it was sitting down with the managers (Daryl/Julie..??) to chat about life or just the smiles that you'd get from any of the staff when you'd see them.
Also, the rooms were so clean and well kept. Yes, there were geckoes (harmless and mainly in the bar area) on the ceiling or a snake (on the paths, never in the room), but they were harmless and really didn't bother us at all. The geckoes were actually pretty cool to watch. In fact, we had just come from another resort in Fiji where we had issues with bugs, and we so very happy to see how clean and bug-free these rooms were here at Royal Davui. It was so relaxing each morning to wake up and drink coffee on the balcony overlooking the beautiful setting right on the water.
The island itself was very unique and fun to walk around. It was very small, so you could swim around the whole island in 30mins or so depending on your pace. There is a reef all around the island that has a wide variety of marine life. Snorkeling or scuba just off the island is all you need to do. There is also at least one (or maybe 2) secluded beaches to go to.
Another great aspect of the resort was the fact that the managers had their personal boat on the island and would take guests out fishing on it (for a decent price too). This was a treat!! Daryl got us on the fish, and with a little luck we had quite a catch that day (which we were able to enjoy for the next few days).
The other activities were fun too, whether it was kayaking around the island, lounging at the pool, snorkeling around the island (saw some great stuff....), sand spit picnic, scuba, surfing, etc. Definitely do the sand spit, and book it right when you arrive.
As long as you are comfortable on a small island such as this (16 rooms I believe), you will not be disappointed here. For us, this was perfect, and we're hoping to go back to enjoy it again sometime.
