We had booked 3 nights and 3 days of diving with Nakia Resort. The resorts is just stunning, perched on a cliff edge looking out into the Somosomo Straight, immaculate gardens and palm trees. The rooms are amazing, wooden cabin type rooms, very nicely built, decorated and very very comfortable with lovely balconies, perfect for sitting out on.
The balcony on which the food is served is really nice, a great view over the resort with good quality wifi. The food itself was really high quality, all the produce is grown on the resort and tasted fantastic, great range from local fijian cuisine to western all expertly prepared by the very friendly local staff. The owners of the resort Jim and Robin are delightful, although we only got to meet Robin in person as Jim was away during our trip, he was however extremely helpful while booking and also accommodating for our travel issue due to flight cancellations. Robin was an ideal host, providing friendly and interesting conversation about their story, the resort and life on Taveuni while dinner was being prepared. Nothing was too much effort for any of the staff.
Nakia resort is a true Eco resort with ALL their power being provided by local renewable resources. They have installed a water turbine into a stream to provide all the electricity the resort needs. Jim and Robin should be congratulated for what they have achieved with Nakia resort, a great example of how a resort should be designed, built and operated.
We completed 6 dives with the Dive school that is part of Nakia, Taveuni Ocean Sports and I have to say were probably one of the most professional dive operators I have ever dived with. Safety was always a number one priority, well kept boats, very clear briefings from Captain Ron, great snacks between dives and very friendly and informative dive crew. The dive sites speak for them selves, quite simply beautiful. We live and dive in Asia and these were some of the best dive sites we have ever seen. I could have dived the White wall every day for the rest of my life.
