I have read some great things about this particular homestay. I cannot find anywhere to bbok or get more information about it.
Any ideas how I could book it?
Also any other homestays in Fiji that anyone recommends? Would like to visit a village, school and get to know the locals.
We'll be in Suvasuva late October and wondered how hard it is to get back and forth to Taveuni by ferry. Googles turns up mostly old and incomplete info. We have the Goundar schedule but wondered about other options.
We're soon staying at the Fiji Hideaway Resort & Spa in Tagaqe village,
Coral Coast, Sigatoka. We have a 21-mth-old and an older child and are planning on doing a day trip to Nadi... is it worth it? We would especially love to buy food in some Fijian supermarkets but if they have plenty in Sigatoka it might not be worth going all the way to Nadi for the same thing?
My fiance and I are trying to find somewhere to go on our honeymoon. He have been doing our research and we keep coming back to Fiji. However we are stuck... Our idea of a trip is to book our hotels at night depending on where we have ended up and to get lunch at local resturants or grocerie stores. Traveling on a shoestring but a little more. We have done this in other countries, Thailand, Bali, Costa Rica.... From some of what we are reading about Fiji this does not seem possible. Am I right saying that? Or can you enjoy Fiji on a low budget just bumming around? Any advice and if its not possible any ideas?
I will be arriving in Fiji in about 10 days and I'm not sure where to go - a few people have told me to skip Nadi so I was thinking of doing this but other than that I have no idea.
I can't dive but like to snorkel - if there is anywhere with whales that would be great as I don't think I'll be able to afford to go to Samoa or Tonga. I'm on a RTW trip so money is tight so the cheaper the better but time is not a problem. I like a beer in the evening and to socialise but I don't want to be surrounded by drunk 18 year olds partying all night.
Thank for your help with a stupidly vague question.
Next October will spend 10 days in Fiji (single Backpacker), planning to stay 4 nights in Blue Lagoon Beach Resort (dorm) but have to decide what to do for next days, choose other place in the Yasawas (octopus resort?) or spend some days in viti levu (Beachouse?) to see another island?
Thanks in advance for any reply!!!
Im travelling to Fiji in January next year. I will be flying into Nadi. I would like to go there and camp and enjoy Fiji without all the chaos of tourists. Can anyone suggest any quiet places or remotes places ?
I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience entering Fiji on a one way ticket. Is it possible? I am planning to spend some time in Fiji and then travel, perhaps by boat, to some other Pacific islands - so I won't be able to show proof of onward travel. Is it possible to show proof of sufficient funds instead?
Any insight would be helpful!
I've read that the Beachcomber has been closed due to a fire in April. Their website doesn't indicate when they will be re-opening. Some other websites report 31st Oct and some agents are taking bookings for mid-Aug. Does anyone have any confirmed dates? Additionally, do you know of any party places in Fiji in lieu of Beachcomber?
Hi we in our 50s are off to fiji in july on a budget no 5 star to much , maybe midway, we also surf . but love the village life , any recommendations of where to stay and a 6week trip travel , also what is the update of club fiji happy travellers
I have 4 major transfers booked with a transport company called Fiji Transfers for next month. All of a sudden, their web page is suspended and I am unable to contact them. Does it mean the they have closed operations?
A Cheaper and affordable option, try Trueblue Rent-A-Car. I got ripped off by budget.
I am just coming back from Fiji and i have to say that Taveuni Island has been the best of my trip in Fiji. I first stay at Vanu lodge which is really peacefull and managed by such a sweet lady. Then i went to Bouma, where the waterfall is. I spent 5 days overthere staying with a Fijian family whose has made sure i had an amazing time.
This family is very keen on welcoming foreign people and i would be very selfish to keep their contacts for myself. Also as there is no lodge or hotel in Bouma it can be helpful to have a homestay contact.
Maria is a mother of 8 boys, but only 3 of them live in the house so there is a spare room for you. As a super nana she is a wonderful cook and like to feed you as much as your stomach can contain yummi food. She is a busy woman but always find some time to spend with you. If not she will offer you to come with her in her many activities.

Heading with a family group to Fiji in September. We'll be spending a few nights in Nadi to explore the main island before spending some time on Mana Island.
Thinking of maybe hiring a car and doing some day trips from Nadi - any suggestions? Particularly any really nice beaches to picnic on, or nice villages to visit?
