We visited for a family wedding. Stayed 5 nights. Firstly our arrival. We arrived on my wife's 60th birthday which had been uneventful for her as we had spent most of day travelling. As soon as we got out of our cab, we were met by a group of the staff singing happy birthday to her. On check in we were met by our butler and driven to our bure and on entering found the room decorated with balloons and a happy birthday message spelled out in petals on the bed, and a piece of cake with happy birthday wishes piped around the edge of plate. An absolutely delightful arrival. Further happy birthday singing and cake at Sundowner bar later.
The room was very good. Good bed and facilities. Water pressure a bit weak, but ok. Many visits by butlers during stay with champagne and night caps. Service and staff very good.
Wedding was done very well in lovely chapel overlooking resort. Reception good with good service. Food ok.
Rest of week spent lazing around adults only pool which was a great pool and great idea for those without children. Also kayaking and snorkelling in lagoon. Not great reef but interesting nevertheless. Dinners in various of the resort restaurants.
Some of our family group, both children and adults got 24 hour vomiting bug. I note that a number of reviewers have mentioned similar issues. My theory is that those who swam in the big pool were the only ones in our family group to get sick in this way. No proof, but heard other families discussing their kids being sick. Theory only but management would be advised to thoroughly investigate the cause of these illnesses.
In general, the staff were great with that typical Fijian friendliness. I found some a bit different with some vagueness in their style. I was served a hot glass of red wine and my wife's white wine was off and had to be returned. It was replaced by good glass "from new bottle".
As with many resorts like this, the food and wine prices were steep. We spent $AUD800 on food and wine in 5 days with quite modest eating & drinking. Some people resorted to eating / drinking outside resort at nearby establishments.
Summary: we did enjoy ourselves here despite some of the negatives listed above. The welcome and style of the majority of staff was excellent. I would have rated higher if some of the above issues had been better. I think this could be an excellent resort with only a small amount of tweaking.
