Fodor's Review

Guests make quick friends with staff and villagers at this simple, intimate resort on Kadavu's eastern tip. Painter Maureen Riggs moved her family here to escape the high-rise development of Australia's Gold Coast and the resort's ties with the local community make it clear that this is a home first, a resort second. Many guests come for the on-site dive shop, which offers highly personalized instruction (sometimes one-on-one); other popular activities include day trips to waterfalls and snorkeling trips to a nearby beach with picnic lunches, and visits to a nearby village. Bures were built and existing ones renovated in 2008. Two are right on the water and each is basically appointed with a double and two single beds, a simple bathroom and covered deck. There are also three dorm-bures that each sleeps three. Hearty Fijian-influenced fare is served buffet-style in an open dining room, the floor of which is a stunning tiled mosaic of the island. Eggs for breakfast are found wherever the truly "free-range" chickens decide to lay them.
