This place is definitely worth the extra effort to get there. We rented a four-wheel drive in Labasa and the car came in handy on our little coastal explorations.
It's a farm settled into a beautiful landscape and the owners seem to truly care about their guests. They only have a few bures, so you get plenty of exclusivity. Joe, the owner, is a jack of many trades. I believe he designed this whole place. Definitely chat him up. He has many incredible stories to tell.
Big star for the cooking; it's super delicious (best food I ate in Fiji). Almost everything you eat comes from the farm. Imagine: if you order a chicken in the morning, they most likely kill it the same day. Everything is absolutely tasty! (plus full bar).
Definitely ask to get taken out on a boat to a sand island (a little island few miles from the shore). Also do take hikes around the property. The nature is spectacular and the locals are incredible friendly and welcoming.
I have no negatives for this place; I only wish I could make it there again in my life. -J
