“La Dolce Vita is Awesome”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

La Dolce Vita is truly an exemplary resort. Everything from the comfortable amenities, the courteous staff, Michelle's delicious cooking, and the hospitality of Margaret and Luigi made the stay in Savusavu wonderful. Dolphin calling in the beatufiul Natewa Bay is a must do for any trip to Savusavu and La Dolce Vita happily made it happen. Enjoy the "sweet life" and enjoy your Fijian vacation here.

If you're searching for a place to stay in Savusavu, look no further. La Dolce Vita is a resort without compare and will treat you like family from day 1. Margaret and Luigi are welcoming and hospitable, and the authentic atmosphere they've created truly brings out the feeling of paradise in Fiji. Through exclusive dolphin trips in Natawa Bay, the private golf course, and new massage stations, an overwhelming relaxation is possible, to escape the busyness of life and experience "Fiji Time". Not only are activities endless, but the expert cuisines that come from the kitchen are delicious. Michel puts an extra pinch of love into each homemade dish, and the service at meals and around the rooms caters to your every need. Margaret's graciousness as a host will definitely draw us back for another visit as soon as possible! Vinaka vaka levu!

The boutique resort feels like home from the moment you arrive to the traditional Fijian goodbye. Hosts Margaret and Luigi bring the sweet life to you in their attention to detail. The bures each have individually unique amenities some with bath tubs, all with sitting areas, kitchens decks and amazing views of Fiji's colorful coastline. The international cuisine by Chef Michelle is delightful.
The staff fulfills every need before you can ask without you even noticing. And then there is Luigi's playground.........a salt water beach pond complete with small boats, kayaks and a slide and you can swim and feed the fish if you want. The back hosts a perfect sized Fijian golf course leading to views stretching all the way to Taveuni.
The hosts arrange boat tours of Natewa Bay where dolphins are called from the open sea by a your Fijian boat driver and dozens come to play in the water with you. Also a sacred walk to witness the sacred red prawns dance at chant of the Fijian villagers of Dromuninuku followed by a lovo and bilibili at their beach brings you into the Fijian family. Oh and did I mention the massage at the point so you can listen to the waves and wind? The most rewarding relaxing holiday yet. I am going back with my family and hopefully a lover just not at the same time!
Truly unbelievable!

Room Tip: All the bures are private with beautiful views but my favorite is the closest to the point!

Thank you for such wonderful words. It's lovely to know our efforts helped to make a truly memorable getaway for you!

We didn't stay here, just had a very good dinner. It's a somewhat amazing place, manicured and beautifully designed, but since we were there off-season we were the only 4 people on the property, which made the experience slightly surreal (but not unpleasant by any means). We were very well taken care of enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Michel prepared a fantastic meal, and Margaret was a gracious hostess.

The La Dolce Vita family is very glad that we were able to contribute to what seems to be an enjoyable Savusavu holiday. Michel is especially gratified to hear you enjoyed your Teppanyaki dinner.
We're especially pleased you took the time to write a review on your experience.

Margaret and Luigi were the consumate hosts - we truely felt like family. They couldn't have been more welcoming of us and the kids. I have NEVER had such a relaxing holiday - despite that we were a group of 20 and managed so many activities. But somehow the hill walks, private golf course, lagoon lap swimming, snorkeling with dolphins, trips to pearl farms and endless dropping in the pool happened with a 'Fiji time' sense of no rush yet it was all on time and perfectly organised. And the food all appeared miraculously with me doing nothing and was delicious, serviced by delightful friendly staff, catered to kids - including arranging 2 nannies for the whole week so mums could wander at will - never felt anything was too much hassle. They even took us to a local school to take some school supplies and books we'd brought from Oz and into town when my daughter needed a doctor - really like family. I just adored it. Wish it was a little closer to home so we could go every weekend. Thank you thank you thank you.
