The main attraction of this beach resort is its amazing beach which for all purposes is private and constantly patrolled by hotel staff. The food is quite good and the prices of food and drink is quite reasonable. Overall loved my stay here

I was very impressed at the standard of accommodation upon arriving at Uprising, but over the next 4 days of my stay became more and more disillusioned with the resort. In short, I ended up feeling like a very demanding customer, purely because the service was consistently terrible. This really related to the restaurant, in which I'd generally sit 15 minutes before any staff took notice, place my drinks order (generally water or coke - nothing complicated) which inexplicably took another 15 minutes to materialise, after which I'd attempt to place a food order. Having spent the previous month in Tonga, I was well acquainted with 'island time' and this wasn't it. This was just poor service - often there'd be only one other table of guests in the restaurant at the time.

Aside from the slow service, the other regrettable issue was the menu, or rather the staff's interpretation of it. In the menu, the components of each dish are listed. When such a list is present, it's not unreasonable to think that is what will appear on your plate. This is generally not the case, and the kitchen happily omit some ingredients and add others. For instance, the tomato in a salad I ordered was bizarrely substituted for... pepperoni. The culmination of this was that, to receive a meal resembling the one that I ordered, I had to dictate the ingredients to the staff and request no deviation from the list. Having said that, once this system was in place, the food was delicious.

A final few issues were the lack of beach towels available from reception EVERY morning, having to pay for the pool table (and wifi), and the lack of a phone in the villa.

To end on some positives, as mentioned the villas are absolutely beautiful, and the resort is in a reasonably good location for diving in Beqa lagoon... but I won't be returning in a hurry.

Bula Vinaka Octeeth, and thank you for reviewing your recent stay here with us at Uprising. We have taken strong note of the enjoyable points noted, and also the not so enjoyable points experienced. We regret to have fallen short on so many points here and we do not wish or promote this experience at any time. The lack of attention and timing during service being one of these short comings is regretted. Our team is our priority and make the experience of Uprising an enjoyable one. I do sincerely regret here once again, that we have fallen short. Regarding the menu awareness and ability to provide assistance has been noted. Recently the resort has launched a new menu, and onsite menu training has been ongoing and continuous with the goal of ensuring that all queries regarding our menus can be answered and menu items are standard each and every time. Regarding the pool tables and Wifi internet, you are correct in saying that these services do incur a charge, and we also regret here that this did not meet your expectations. Once again Octeeth, thank you for the points brought to our attention. We do sincerely hope that one day we can have you back with us to overcome our shortfalls and deliver a much better holiday experience. Until then, vinaka vakalevu and safe travels from everyone at Uprising.

Absolutely loved this hotel. Stayed in one of the huge bungalows. The bungalow was amazing especially the outdoor bathing area. Defiantly felt like I was on an exotic island.

The pool was nice, great entertainment, good food, great company!! What more could anyone ask for!! Would most defiantly recommend this hotel!!

My wife and I spent a fantastic 7 nights at the Uprising Beach Resort. This resort is very central to a lot of activities that can be organised through the reception. The staff are wonderful, genuinely friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The restaurant made a variety of different theme meals each night and the normal menu meals are very affordable. Local drinks are cheap, although the cocktails were fantastic but expensive. The atmosphere is very authentic with the bure's situated amongst native trees and plants with a nice fresh water pool situated next to the restaurant. The beach is clean and long, so you can swim away from others if that's what you want.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the beach front bure's with outside shower. They are right on the beach and the s...

Very affordable and relaxing. Staff were wonderful and always super friendly, especially Nina and Wendy. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Accomodation in this area can be pretty dare but we prebooked the Dormitory to attend a friends wedding and were surprised at the value and great survice, it is a 20 bed dorm in a tree house and most nights there were great new people to meet and fun things to do. Cheap taxis to the art village or well within walking distance. Locals were always smiling and "Bula" is always yelled out in a happy way.

Room Tip: If travelling on a budget prebook in the Dormitory. If you ahve a bit of spare cash and are feeling...

My first time in Fiji and what a wonderful experience.
We were over for a friends wedding and while most of our friends were staying in a nearby resort,we decided to stay in the Dormhouse at The Uprising.
The Dormhouse bunks were comfortable and the linen was changed daily,the showers were awesome,and sleeping area was clean.
The layout of The Uprising was good and the pool,bar,restaurant area were fantastic with many a night spent playing pool or table tennis,having beers with friends we had made staying in the Dormhouse.
To me the most important thing about the Uprisings awesomeness was its wonderful staff,who would greet you by name every time that they saw you,with a big welcoming smile.
Two big shout outs in particular:
the first goes to Nina,the lovely,beautiful woman who would keep our room looking amazing everyday and smiling and laughing and just being cool.
The second goes to Wendy,who worked at the reception desks in the evening.When we first meet Wendy we were greeted with a beautiful smile and a very big friendly heartfelt welcome.
It made me feel good to know that the staff at the Uprising appreciate the vistors that they meet and greet everyday,whether you are staying for one night or 2 weeks.
YOU ALL ROCK!!!
The only thing that was probably the only let down was that there didnt seem to be any daily activities happening.
Maybe if Paddleboards,kayaks,bikes etc were made available to all patrons(free) to use when they wanted them,not only on designated days,as per Newsletter(which werent available when we were staying)
Just an idea.
Overall the Uprising is a fantastic resort to stay at.
Would have been 5stars if wasnt for a small inconvenience.
The Massages were brilliant too.
Oh,I forgot to mention.Im sorry for scaring you you Wendy on that could dark lonely rainy night ;)

Room Tip: Dorm room if you want to meet people
