“A well kept secret”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

A very friendly resort. If you are looking for luxury and a poolside bar, this isnt the place; but if you are after a good family spot its on the money. Accomodation in the beach bures is a traditionally crafted bure. It is the room only - no amenities and shutters as windows. They are close to the beach and you can be lulled to sleep y the sound of waves on the shore just outside your door. Toilets and showers are in the communial facility and are clean - the showers are sun warmed water only - and are separate outdoor style. If you are into being at a small laid back resort, no TV but the stars in the night sky and the local band singing this is a great place. Very friendly staff who remember your name and are pleased to have you there. The water sports equipment was in very food condition. Snorkeling around the island is good - there is a lot of regenerating coral holding small fish plus snorkeling trips furher afield can be arranged. Dont too many people go though 'cos that might spoil it for the rest of us!

Room Tip: Beach front family bures - double bed, single bed & bunks. Other accomodation is pretty basic.

We recently stayed on Leleuvia Island for 3 nights. We took our neighbours from New Zealand with us. My 16 year old son said it was a better holiday than Disneyland. We all cant wait to go back. The family bure was so comfortable, we all slept like babies with the cool sea breeze. The food was out of this world (ask Colin to get the chef to do the boiled buns!!), my 12 year old caught a huge GT (almost bigger than him). I finally got to read a book from cover to cover! It is a great place for families with kids of all ages and Colin and all the staff make it that extra special. Thanks again Leleuvia and we will see you again very soon.

Room Tip: We had a bure which they set up to sleep 5. Was still very spacious.

Leleuvia never fails. It's close to Suva (40 mins road + 30 mins boat) but worlds apart. Everything about the island inspires tranquility and peace. The beaches are beautiful, there's a real sense of community and the water activities are nice. Along with the classic diving and snorkelling, they offer jet-skis and stand-up paddling.

The Bures are basic, but exactly what one would need in a place like this. They are made from local wood and palm leaves, contain a double and a single beds, 2 plugs and nothing else. One sleeps and wakes up nicely with the sound of the waves.

For now, toilet and shower facilities are all shared. They are, however, constantly clean and well maintained. But there's no hot water. I'm saving my fifth star for when the en-suite bathrooms and hot water become available, but otherwise highly recommended!

An home away from home in a stunning location. Friendly and helpful staff, plenty of water activities, cool and clean accomodation, very good food, free wi-fi. There's no luxury here, nor trash and loud enterteinment, but simple and quiet life, eco-friendly and respectful of culture. After a month spent travelling in Fiji this is in absolute the best place I've been.

The people btittle stars, huge clams/scallop type, many fish, a baby stingray. The discovery dive for non-certified divers was great. The diver stayed with me and had the patience of ten saints. The food was fresh and heavenly. Bring a flashlight because lights out at midnight. ALL LIGHTS, so you need a flashlight to use the bathrooms. Cold water showers which make you shiver but its really a lot of fun to live this way for a few days or week. The bure or large hut is a wonderful way to enjoy the island. Falling asleep to the water beating on the shore. Picture perfect island, wonderful people, great food, spectular view of the stars at night and Whitey the cat roams the island. Hundreds of thousands of hermit crabs crawl everywhere. WOW! WOW!

Room Tip: Bure or hut is large, I don't recommend traveling alone because it could get lonely esp at night...

I had the most amazing weekend at Leleuvia Island Resort!!! Have recommended it to all my friends and family - a must visit resort in Fiji. So incredibly beautiful with the friendliest staff who make you feel right at home... So many activities available for water enthusiasts like myself; I got to do outrgigger paddling both in the single and team canoes and stand-up paddling. Other highlights include the food, their eco-friendly practices, free wi-fi, a strong cultural focus and oh yeah, waking up in paradise. Already booked my next trip back!

Colin and the staff give visitors a passport to a Fiji that most people don't get to see. Everything is done with excellence and with respect for the culture. The bures, the lovo, the band, the diving, the sailing, the kayaking, the sand, ......... and going to sleep to the sound of the sea. This place is magic and we can't wait to go back.
