On June 19th, me and 12 crazy divers ventured to the trip of a life time to the island of Fiji. Although we left on Thursday we did not arrive until Saturday morning. We then boarded an air conditioned bus and after 2 hours of driving through towns and over mountains we arrived at the true" HEAVEN ON EARTH. " As we pulled into the parking lot there were people singing and greeting us as we were heros. We checked into the resort and the adventure began. Our luggage was brought to our rooms for unpacking and our rooms were ready and gorgeous, mine right on the beach front. We took our dive equipment to the dive shop and filled out our proper paperwork and when we asked if we could set up our gear we were told that it would be done by the dive crew. After this day we did not touch our dive gear unless we were diving. The dive boats were roomy and well equipped and the Captain and Dive Masters and Instructors were second to none. They were very knowledgable and friendly and treated us as they had known us all their lives. The diving was great and the service by Wananavu Dive Boys and Mere was fantastic. The food in the restaurant was great and the service from the staff was exceptional. We took town tours and slid down ice cold mountain streams and took park in an actual KAVA ritual in a local village. Did I mention we also drank a lot of KAVA during our 10 days. WOW.......We had two divers celebrate their 100th dive and it is a celebration they will never forget and Wananavu Dive Boys joined in the fun. We also celebrated 2 birthdays and the chef baked them a home made cake. Now this was something very special. There was also plenty of fun and practical joking by all thru the entire trip. From cold water to even food coloring in those fun places. ........The sunrise and sunsets were so beautiful each photo looked like a postcard ready for mailing and the surrounding fauna was just as appealing and beautiful. THIS RESORT HAS IT ALL. Every good thing must come to an end so after our final day of diving the dive shop said they would take care of all the gear and we were not to touch it until they finished cleaning it. We used the last day to enjoy the Spa and take in the massages and also spent the day at the resort style pool area. Sunday morning came and our gear was Clean, Dry and was ready to be packed up for travel. WANANAVU DIVERS TREATED ALL OUR DIVERS LIKE ROYALITY THE ENTIRE WEEK. This was a week of diving and relaxing people dream about. As we boarded the bus to take us back to the airport the dive crew, the staff and the entire crew sang to us and wished us safe travels and he hope of return to their paradise.
THE ENTIRE RESORT STAFF WAS ALWAYS HAPPY TO SEE YOU AND HAD A GENUINE FRENDINESS ABOUT THEM. The ride to the airport was quiet and everyone was already missing the friends we will have for a life-time. This resort has it all from great accommodations to a great Chef and lots of good food to helpful friendly wait staff. The Spa was wonderful, the pool was fun and the DIVING WAS FANTASTIC AND THE BEST DIVE CREW I HAVE EXPERIENCED.
