As return guests (and an ex-local) who much prefer the intimacy and charm of small boutique resorts, my wife and I (along with 43 family & friends) were excited to have held our 'deliberately laid back' island themed wedding at Tambua Sands in mid October. The wonderful weather and beautiful beachside location delivered what we could only describe as the...

Bula Lyle ... Many thanks for taking time to write on TripAdvisor. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting your wedding at Tambua Sands .. and thank Cecy and yourself for choosing Tambua for such a special occasion.

When you discover a hidden gem like this it's tempting to keep it a secret 😀. Tambua Sands is that gem! But the place deserves praise. Set on the amazing Coral Coast, Tambua Sands is an authentic, traditional Fijian resort. Unlike some of the neighbouring behemoths that house 400+ rooms, this place will give you privacy, space and comfort throughout...

Our family of four stayed here for 5 nights and we all loved it!

My friend and I enjoyed a week at Tambua Sands and although it rained we still enjoyed kayaking and snorkeling, a massage and even jumped in the pool. Our bure was right next to the sea.

The staff made us feel really welcome. The moment we pulled up to drums, our reservations waiting, and help to get baggage to our room. We were upgraded to an Ocean Bure. The rooms are very tired and need some attention, but that was overlooked because of where we where. Waking up in the morning looking straight onto sand and...

Easy and frequent access to a coral reef for snorkelling can't get any better than this! Just a few steps from the door of your cabin, and you're stepping into the water and the reef. Lots of colourful fish, blue starfish, anemones, sea slugs, and even one sea snake! If snorkelling isn't your thing, you can see just as much...

Very relaxing. Friendly people. Excellent food. Just the place to unwind. Fiji time. Or take a scenic tour. There's plenty to do or as little as you like. Simply a little piece of paradise. Vinaka to all the staff for such a pleasurable stay at Tambua Sands Resort on the Coral Coast, Fiji.
