8.4 out of 10

Tucked away in a jungly cove on Vanua Levu (but best accessed from Taveuni), this is a fantastically remote place with simple bure and permanent safari tents. Divers, aware of the excellent location and great reputation of the diving outfit here, make up most of the guests; there’s also good snorkelling from the stunning beach. The food is delicious (optional meal plan $105).

The resort is only accessible by boat, and transfers must be arranged in advance. Transfers from Taveuni Wharf are $40, and $65 from Buca Bay; in a pinch, staff will also pick you up from Savusavu (extra costs apply).

The resort is in the process of moving to Viani Bay (about 10 minutes south); dive operations are set to commence there in April 2016, with accommodation to open in December; the present location will remain fully operational until then. It also plans on building 20 yacht moorings.
