A perfect place to go for relaxation and rejuvenation. The facilities were excellent, meals were outstanding and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The Managers were lovely and obviously work hard to maintain the pristine environment. Highly recommended!!

What an amazing place - I was worried as we had been there before and I thought it might not be as good the second time, but of course it was! Such a lovely quiet delightful piece of paradise and the food was so much better than last year. I hope I get to go back again with my husband.

Beautiful!

Pros: Felt really luxurious and private, the door to door airport transfers were very handy (if a little expensive), and the cocktails were delicious.
Cons: The cocktails and food were fairly expensive, but we brought some food, snacks and alcohol of our own which offset that cost nicely.
Location: The location is wonderful, with a very deserted and romantic feeling. The snorkelling was great.
We stayed on Fafa Island for 4 nights, and it was just blissful. The staff were lovely - Laura and David were wonderful hosts. The beachside fales are gorgeous, the private outdoor bathrooms were amazing, and it was full of really nice little touches. The beach is beautiful, and the whole thing felt very private - even though most of the other fales were occupied, it was rare to see someone on the beach. There's great snorkelling - we didn't manage to take a kayak out (far too lazy!) but we'd love to come back and fit in a kayak next time. It was perfect for a couple looking for a romantic and relaxing island getaway. Loved it!

Paradise

Pros: Presentation, private fales, food and bbq with culture show.
Cons: All good
Location: 30 mins back to mainland. Plenty to do on Fafa, relaxing in the hammock, walking, swimming, snorkelling and kayaking.
A 30 minute boat trip from mainland and a very warm welcome on arrival., beautiful clean fale with private access to beach, the outdoor bathroom and shower was a beautiful relaxing environment, plenty to do and see, walking, swimming, snorkelling and kayaking. The meals were delicious, a great variety and well presented. The boat goes back to the mainland twice a day which is good for stocking up on supplies. Don't forget to bring your own nibbles/refreshments to relax around your fale🌸

Pros: Outdoor showers - and the service provided by Vincent
Cons: No hot water jug - internet at bar only - petty, to get you to go to bar area. The ceiling fan in the Fale should be 5 meters closer to the bed
Facilities: Outstanding; Value: Acceptable price, Moderate; Service: Remarkable, Go the extra mile; Cleanliness: Spotless; The swimming is poor - well over half the island has no beach at all, and the "in water" is scrappy at best.
