We loved the Nakia Eco-Resort. We were picked up at the airport upon arrival in Taveuni. The accommodations were great, the landscaping was amazing and the views were incredible. The owners, Jim and Robin with their daughter Julie, who runs Taveuni Water Sports, and the staff, were the nicest people we have ever encountered in our extensive travels. This was more like a very intimate bed and breakfast than a normal resort. However, we had all the privacy of a huge resort.
We requested vegetarian meals with our reservations. Upon arrival we noticed only a few items on the set menus. Robin, the owner, talked to us about her suggestions and we suggested she surprise us for each meal. Wow, what fun. Every meal was absolutely delicious and unique. We could not have hoped for better.
Julie, the daughter of owner’s Jim and Robin, is the most knowledgeable divemaster we have ever dove with. We would only dive at sites if the currents were running right to get the full benefit from the dive. Julie would brief us before entering the water, telling what to expect to see at each dive site. Once diving, she would point out or write down what was in the briefing as well as describe other rare sightings. It helped that we were diving in once of the most beautiful soft coral areas in the world with more fish than we thought possible.
We look forward to a return visit.
