We had a wonderful time at Nakia resort. Because we are locals we've been fortunate enough to stay at many resorts in Fiji, and this was by far our favorite. We stayed at the Somosomo family bure. The accommodation is beautiful, the view amazing, and the food was spectacular. Really - we looked forward to every meal. But what really made this place special was the people we met. The owner Robin treated us like family (and is a lovely person), the kitchen and wait staff spoiled us (and our children), and Ron (the resort's jack-of-all trades, and our tour guide for Taveuni's various activities) was warm, interesting and fun. I can't say enough good things about this resort, and the people we met there. Our kids loved it and so did we. My suggestion: if you go to Taveuni, don't pass on this gem.

To call this special place a "resort" understates the magic of it. It's more like a welcoming visit with one of the most beautiful families you'll ever meet, in a magnificent land. Robin, Julie and Jim have created their own dream life on Taveuni Island and they graciously share their life with you during your stay. The land is beautiful with breathtaking views and thriving life. Every member of the staff beam with warmth an authenticity as they ensure your stay is nourishing and adventurous. The food is incredible with a vast variety of choices - each one a gourmet experience. As you enjoy each meal from the deck overlooking the ocean, Robin, the matriarch of the family, makes you feel well cared for. And the diving... oh the diving. Firstly, Julie, the daughter and owner of the dive company, is one of the most beautiful souls I've ever met. She beams warmth and has a depth to her spirit that effects everyone around her. It's most evident in the wonderful staff and dive crew. Each one of them are charismatic, fun and highly knowledgeable. Underneath the entire experience is the awareness that everyone that works there has a deep love for the coral reefs and a spiritual connection to the ocean. The special feeling you get when diving with this team leaves you with a sense of satisfaction that what you just experienced was a once in a lifetime gift. And then the reefs of Taveuni reveal themselves to you. Truly the best diving in the world. I left this trip deeply considering the idea of leaving my life in the US and returning to stay for good. I really didn't want to leave.

Not Just going to Fiji, but truly being in Fiji. Went to Nakia on recommendation of a friend. Went with my 14yo son, that same friend and another close friend. Nakia is such a welcomed reminder of how many different ways there are to live a beautiful life. These folks aren't running a resort so much as sharing a slice of paradise, a way of life in a part of the world so stunning it literally brought me to tears. If you are looking for a genuine shift of energies, a remembering of living without exertion, Nakia will take you there. Oh, and better food than any Ritz or 4 Seasons I've been to. Soooo good! The diving experience was also phenomenal. Wonderful hosts with great skill, knowledge and caring. Genuinely no other resort I have personally experienced in the world that I would rate more highly.

I thoroughly enjoyed my 9 day stay at Kakia Resort and the 8 diving days at the Taveuni Ocean Sports dive center. The accommodations were comfortable and clean and the staff was very eager to take care of every need. WiFi was available in the dining area. Everyone was just extremely nice. The staff at the associated dive center (Taveuni Ocean Sports) were also wonderful. In my 16 dives I was never in a group larger than 3 divers and a dive master. They take care of your equipment from the time you leave the boat after the days dives until you step on the boat for the next days diving. The dive guides knew the dive sites and were able to find a lot of unique and generally small creatures. Again great experience.

This was our 3rd trip to Nakia. The grounds are immaculate, the food is excellent, the staff are very attentive, and well, the place is just great. The hosts treat you just like family and attend to every detail.They regularly invite local musicians and we loved sitting around the Kava bowl with them, listening to the music and enjoying the sunset. You feel like you are part of a large Fijian family while visiting Nakia. Our typical schedule was to wake up to a tasty breakfast (my favorite was the banana pancakes with passion-fruit syrup made with fruit picked from their garden). Then it was off for diving at the Rainbow Reef with Julie and Taveuni Ocean Sports. Then, lunch, a nap, and then dinner often followed by a beautiful sunset. Our favorite beverages were Fiji Red (they make their lemonade with brewed hibiscus) and fruit smoothies. Their rooms are very nice. We were able to stay in the Somosomo bure this time but we have been in the Garden and Sunset bures and they are all very nice. If you are looking for beautiful scenery, great diving (but very safe), great food, and relaxation, Nakia is a great place to stay. It is great for divers because it is a short walk from the resort down to the dive shop.
