From the moment we were met at Savusavu airport to our musical farewell at the resort jetty five days (too short) later, this was an experience to treasure. The villas are comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, with wonderful open air bathroom. The meals are as good as anywhere, the restaurant/recreation area is a terrific base for lazing around and/or meeting other guests, and the staff are exceptional. There is so much happy kindness in this place. Nothing too much trouble, anything we wanted to do was accommodated, we felt completely free to do as much or as little as we wanted to, whenever we felt like it. This is not a 'luxury' resort as portrayed in travel magazines, the luxury refers to the beauty of the pristine landscape, the perfect setting and design of the villas, and the inspiring kindness of the staff.
We snorkelled, kayaked, swam with manta rays, visited the Micronesian village on nearby Kiola, and even walked up Mt Apisai in the midday sun. We had pretty much done everything a visitor can do but felt no wish to move on - only our Western obsession with itineraries stopped us from staying on. We may never be back - the world is wide with lots of paths to walk - but if not we will be the losers. This is the happiest place I have ever stayed at, the new benchmark.
To Dan and Natasha, Poni, Nani, Merione, Joseph, Nio, and all the staff, a heartfelt vinaka for the best holiday imaginable.
