“Privacy in Paradise”
Reviewed 26 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This beautiful property has amazing views and captures all the breezes being situated on a point. The house is well appointed with a beautiful pool. It is very close to a resort which is handy for the times you don't wish to self cater. The nearest town is around a 20 minute drive but once you're at Bularangi you really don't want to leave anyway. Loved it!

“Spacious, private oasis getaway”
Reviewed 26 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Our Bularangi Villa experience was exceptional, from our welcome upon arrival, our dinner cooked by the lovely Manju, through to the gorgeous views from poolside, bedroom and kitchen.
The villa really is your own private oasis with warm winds blowing in the afternoon, a stunning open kitchen/dining area and large bedrooms and bathrooms.
I definitely recommend having a meal cooked for you, this was one of the culinary highlights of our whole trip.
Bularangi Villa is the perfect place to unwind, take a breath and enjoy beautiful Fiji in a whole new way.

“Heaven Again”
Reviewed 15 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Last year I described our 4 weeks stay at Bularangi as " Heaven on Earth ". Derek and I have just returned from another 4 weeks in heaven!
After 36 consecutive years enjoying varying lengths of time in Fiji in an attempt to escape the NZ winter, we now think that we have hit the jackpot.
Our stay at the beautiful, modern villa of Bularangi was amazing, awesome and varied. This year we were lucky enough to have grandstand seats to watch the big budget movie
"Adrift" being filmed in the waters directly in front of us. Exciting!
We share our time at the villa with great Australian friends and the layout allows us to enjoy being together, but privacy as needed.
The lovely sheltered fresh water pool provides a great outdoor gathering place and welcome relief from the hot Fiji sun.
Our Australian friend who is a passionate fisherman and has fished in many countries throughout the world, rates the area as some of the best fishing he has experienced. These trips were arranged by Kamlesh.
Kamlesh and Manju exude warmth and hospitality. They are a joy to be with. We have become very close to them and our departure was emotional.
Booking Bularangi is very straightforward through the website and all our dealings with owners Ali and Baz very pleasant.
We're already booked for another 4 weeks 2018 and counting off the days till then.

“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed 22 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed 6 nights at Bularangi Villa with our 3 boys, hoping for a peaceful, private retreat - which is exactly what we got! The villa is located in an area of Fiji a little off the beaten track but that's what we were after as opposed to the touristy areas of Denerau and The Coral Coast. The villa itself is fully equipped, comfortable and with a view to die for! The pool is great and everything is kept in top nick by caretaker Kamlesh and his sister Manju, who also cooks a mean curry! Kamlesh will happily guide you around the area and simply can't do enough to make your trip perfect. However, if you don't require his services he will just as happily leave you to your own devices. The wifi worked great and there was SKY so I didn't miss the all important Lions games! There is no white sand beach at Bularangi and it can get a bit blustery with the prevailing Easterly wind. However, you can snorkel straight out the front of the property at high tide and there are 2 resorts (Wananavu and Volivoli) nearby where the beach is nice (but small!). Volivoli do a lovu evening on a Thursday night with local dancers which is well worth a visit. This part of Fiji is what the locals call the "real Fiji" and that is what really attracted us in the first place. The town of Rakiraki nearby is bustling with a couple of reasonable supermarkets and an awesome fruit and veg market - a must! The best guage of any property and location is, would we go back? Absolutely!

“3rd visit and always exceed expectation”
Reviewed 22 May 2017 for a stay in March 2017

My husband and I recently completed our 3rd two week visit. We absolutely love this vacation! Fiji is a beautiful place but this home seals the deal! Not only is the home to die for but the attention to detail that the owners and caretakers offer is incredible! Ali helps you arrange everything prior to your visit so your time at the Villa is complete. Kamlesh and Manju complete your time once you arrive at the villa. We keep returning not only for the beautiful villa, incredible relaxation but for the great relationships we have developed over visits! If you need a place just to relax, enjoy Fiji and your time, Bularangi is your spot!!

“Stunning Villa!”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The photos of Bularangi Villa don’t do it justice – it is absolutely gorgeous with spectacular uninterrupted views out to the bay. Thank you so much, Ali, for allowing us to stay. Right from the beginning it was easy with detailed information about the villa and all we needed to know about shopping and how to get there. Kamlesh (the caretaker) was so welcoming and the Lovu he and his wife made was incredible. Kamlesh put us in touch with a local fisherman we hired to take us out on his boat for a day of fishing, beaching and snorkelling – a highlight of the trip. What made it even more special was being able to share it with friends who travelled over from America. We went on a dive and snorkel trip at Wananavu and did crab races and visited Volivoli resort for a day. Volivoli was worth the extra trip as they are incredibly welcoming and their pool with a bar is worth trying. We hired a van for the week, which was worth it just for easy of getting around. Rakiraki markets were great, and we did the mudpools on our way to Bularangi – totally worth the detour. Recommend Bularangi to everyone, we had such an amazing time and were very sad to leave. Thanks Ali!

“Living Like A Rock Star”
Reviewed 20 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016
1
person found this review helpful

"On our trip to Fiji we wanted to feel like we were in Paradise. But as my 22 y/o put it. I Feel Like a Rock Star!! The residence has a beautiful view that goes on for miles/km right out your backdoor. Couldn't ask for more in that part. The inside house has lots of room to spread out. Same as the bathrooms, lots of space ;-) . Swimming pool gets lots of sun during the day and evening stars while laying out by the pool at night. You will feel like a Rock Star! Bring you fresh ground coffee. Only freeze dried in town."
