When I give 5 stars it's only when it truly cannot get any better - which seems to happen just once in a while... JJ really took great care of us. His hospitality and good sense of humor stood out during our short stay. The food (lunch, dinner and bfast) was very good and my favorite beverage here was the home brewed lemon leaf tea. While we finished dinner the friendly staff sang a beautiful farewell song to a special guest who was also departing the next day. That was a special treat.
Hubby and I had just this 1 day/night here (between getting off a liveaboard boat and catching a plane the next day) but if we were lucky enough to return to Savusavu someday, we would certainly plan on a longer stay at Daku Resort, plus we'd schedule a few boat dives with the close-by Jean-Michel Cousteau dive resort. For being in the three star lodging category, we happily give Daku 5 stars for Service & Location, and 4 stars for our overall experience!
Full disclosure: the reason why I chose to rate only the Service and Location is due to an honest glitch. Our reservation via Booking.com somehow had not been picked up by the system at Daku and the resort was fully booked on the day we arrived. JJ sincerely apologized and offered to take care of our lodging at another place in Savusavu. Alternatively he gave us the option to stay at Daku at a great discount in The Lodge which is not typically advertised for guests as it is not a nearly as nicely furnished. We opted to stay at Daku and we don't regret it :)
