The name Namuka Bay resort is a misnomer. If by resort you conjure up visions of lying by a pool, sipping creamy cocktails , lots of activities and day trips, nightlife and shopping, then it has none of these things, and you will be disappointed. It should be called Namuka Bay Hideaway or Retreat, because if you want isolation, seclusion and time to think, read and walk along long stretches of lonely beaches and swim in the sea and snorkel then this place is for you. Take appropriate footwear for beach walking as there is a reason it is called the “coral coast". Take bubble wrap if you want to take home the colourful shells you find revealed by the tides.
Things to know: There is no electricity from 6am to 7pm “ish” at night. This is not a problem
as there is plenty of light to read, plus you need to remember to charge any electrical
equipment at night. There are overhead fans and no air-conditioning. Because of your
proximity to the water and the constant sea breeze the fans are perfectly adequate. There are
no small refrigerators or tea/coffee making equipment in the rooms – not much point if there
is no power during the day.

There is no pool, but there are endless beaches. The beach side villas are so close to the water that you can almost touch it from your verandah. You will spend a lot of time on your verandah just watching the water and the changing weather. You will be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves.
There is nothing to do other than what you bring to entertain yourself. I suggest lots of books and a laptop, with DVDs for the night time. Parents, for your own sanity and that of other guests, this means that your children will be hideously bored so take them to a resort with a kid’s club.
Take everything that you will need, including toiletries as they are not provided, and there are no shops close by. I suggest you take anything you need such as chocolate, duty free alcohol and mixers (the staff can put these in the main refrigerator for you – yes it stays cold during the day when the power is off) snacks etc., or in the very least ask the driver to stop on the way to Namuka so you can pick up anything you might want.
Internet access is occasional and only managed when the planets align. Mobile phone coverage with Digicell is good. I always have my mobile on in case of emergencies, but don’t use it otherwise. If you can’t be without constant internet access such as the need for Facebook updating, then this place will not suit you.
The food is excellent. Take the $65FJ three meals per day package. Actually, there is nowhere else to get food, but you won’t be disappointed. Lots of fruit, fish (the “ikavakalolo” – fish in coconut milk and the “miti” – cold fish soup with coriander are exceptional). The chicken and fish curries are excellent and nicely spiced. No junk food in sight.
The staff are willing to please, and like the Fijians in my previous experience (this was my 4th trip to Fiji) I found that they hate to disappoint you so they will not answer direct questions about such things as the weather, and yes it does rain in Fiji, sometimes for days and nights on end without a break. Get used to Fiji time, don’t fight it and don’t look at your watch. The main thing is that they just need to get you to the airport on time for your flight home. The airport runs on the same time as the rest of the world.

We agree with most of the other positive comments so we won't repeat them. We had a nice relaxing time but there are some annoyances. The following should better prepare you if you decide to stay there.

- we paid for 5 nights in the “all inclusive villa” (direct to Namuka Resort on the web) and received a free night but this apparently did not include meals (not told to you before booking). We were charged for six extra meals just before leaving! (approx. $20 FJD each). We felt this was unfair, especially, since we were away from the resort for three days traveling and did not eat six lunches which we had paid for).
- there isn't much coral or fish to see while snorkelling, much of it is either dead or broken and what's left is not very colourful. The reef is very shallow which makes it only practical to snorkel at high tide but you will still need to be very careful that you don't get scratched by the coral. One lady received quite a few scratches on her stomach while we were there, we hope she doesn't get permanent scaring. (We had our own equipment so can’t comment on their equipment). If you get coral cuts/scratches rinse them thoroughly under clean water and disinfect with hydrogen peroxide as soon as possible. It's not possible to swim out past the coral wave break where you might be able to snorkel in the open sea. It's highly recommended that you bring Croc rubber shoes for walking on the beach (lots of sharp broken coral) and also for swimming.
- the showers in the Beach Front Villa's don't have much pressure and sometimes don't have hot water (one hot water system shared by two rooms). The shower is outside of the villa without a roof so it can be cold from wind and rain drops from the roof.
- the beds are quite short, so if you're over 170cm it will be a little uncomfortable.
- we could hear the other couple coughing through the wall that separates the rooms in the villa.
- transportation to the resort is awkward because it is about 6klms (seems much longer) along a rough, hilly dirt road off the main road so you can forget about walking especially if you have luggage. We paid $100 FJD for a taxi from Nandi Airport which is about an hour long trip. A cheaper option would be to get a taxi from the airport to Nadi (pronounced Nandi) for FJD $15 and an express bus to Cuvu (closest town just past the resort - pronounced Duvu) for about FJD $20 and get a carrier (un-marked local taxi to the resort for $10 or $12 FJD). 99% of taxi's will try to overcharge you, so find out what you should pay from a reliable source (a local perhaps) before you take one, and get the safest looking one. It's not recommended that you take a minibus as they often are involved in accidents from speeding to make more money. Almost every trip we took we saw an accident. One head-on accident we saw involved a govt car which was speeding that ended up on its side on fire - two dead, and two injured in the other car. On our way back to the airport we were almost involved in a head-on collision when a speeding car was overtaking on a blind bend, luckily our taxi driver reacted in time by braking heavily and swerving half way off the road. The main road around the island is in very poor condition. We only saw one bicycle and one motorbike the whole time (in about 12 hours of travelling on the main island to Nadi, Suva, etc.) and I personally wouldn't attempt it. We caught an express bus to Suva (3hrs one way) nothing to see there, the museum is less than ordinary, wouldn’t recommend it at all. Nadi is good for shopping (again don’t pay label price for anything, start haggling at 40% or less – some souvenir shops you can start at 10% or even less). Sigatoka hill fort and sand dunes are interesting – pay about $20 for a taxi to take you to these from Sigatoka town, they are not far from town. Watch out for scams while in the towns, don’t tell your name to men who will carve it into a knife so you must buy it, don’t donate money for a school library collected by “student” not in uniform.
- be sure to select a kayak without holes in the bottom, the ones with holes will fill up quickly making them uncontrollable and you are likely to get a nasty coral cut when you fall onto the sharp, shallow coral beds. They are extremely heavy so you will probably need help getting them into the water.
- only one small bar of soap is provided in the sink and no shampoo or conditioner, so make sure you take those. Two towels are provided but you can ask for more.
- of course we brought our own duty free alcohol (and mixers), there is no fridge in the room but other guests asked to keep theirs in the kitchen fridge. The water from the kitchen is ok to drink (never drank the sink water in the room) and tastes quite good. We brought our own bottles of (Fiji) water for convenience. We took snacks with us but didn't really eat them as the meals filled us up. There is a small supermarket in Duvu were you can get supplies.
- no mosquitoes in the room or the villa porch (in August) but we did get bitten a bit while eating in the open dining area in front of the kitchen.
- when visiting the cave take a pair of glasses (if you wear them) because you won't see much with sunglasses in a dark cave. If you go with one of the staff they will provide torches. If your legs are sensitive you may get rashes or itchiness walking through the long grass wearing shorts.
- book your horse ride well in advance, we missed out as they only do it for a single person per day (only one saddle available).
- the vegetable garden had been moved since the last big floods so isn't very big and is very "informal" and probably doesn't produce much.

most relaxing holiday, the resort is secluded, quiet and peaceful. Staff are always smiling and friendly, and ever helpful. Management are professional and very helpful to any requests. Would recommend the resort to anyone wanting a relaxing getaway. Will definately return on our next visit to Fiji.

After reading the reviews on this site I didn't not hesitate to make a booking. This was much to my disappointment. Where to I start

CONS:
1. No one knows about this resort which makes it hard to get a taxi from the airport
2.The owner is a rip off
2.1 Charges you F$10 to get to the main road - one way (oh and this is per person not per ride like every other transport ie taxi.) He doesn't mention this when you get in the vehicle (making it seem that it is part of the service provided by the hotel. Only when you go to check out and clear the bill does he hit you with the costs for transfers to the main road or shops)
2.2 Tried to charge me the full rate for the room F$180 regardless of the fact that I got a very cheap rate online (cheaper than the backpacker rate on the resort website)
2.3 Regardless of the fact that my booking was for a Family villa with a double and single bed, the owner told insisted twice that I should have been in the cheaper backpacker accommodation and that he was doing me a favor letting me have the villa??? He also advised me that if it got busy, I would have to move to the backpacker accommodation.
2.4 After 2 frustrating days, I was not happy with the accommodation and I opted to check out after 3 days. The owner wanted to charge me for the full entire period I was supposed to be there, claiming we had a contract. (this was despite not having my booking upon arrival and my booking rate stating I had a minimum 2 night for this resort)
2.5 The owner tried to charge me for breakfast and dinner, despite my booking stating that the rate included these meals.
3 There are no activities at the resort
4 The resort does not organise any tours for its visitors. Every other hotel has a tour desk where you choose what you would like to get involved in and they call the companies for you and organise pick up. Despite multiple attempts to get assistance for activities I was booked for. The owner didn't seem concerned about any of my plans. This leads me to the next problem
5 There is minimal reception at the resort which makes contacting any tours you might have booked almost impossible.
6 The Owner is not very friendly and welcoming, I was very uncomfortable and walking on egg shells whenever he was there. ZERO customer service.
7 The walls are very thin in this place. I was awakened by the loud moaning noises of the couple having sex in the villa next to mine
8 No defined times for electricity. The generator is turned on when it gets dark and is switched off at 11pm. Therefore-
9 No air conditioning during the day, not even a fan.
10 This is not the resort to stay in if you plan on swimming or surfing. There is coral for meters and meters and you can walk out to the end of the reef as the water only gets to about waist deep all the way.

That said there was a few positive things about the place
PROS"
1 Awesome views of the beach from the balcony, if you are in the villas
2 Quiet and very peaceful
3 The train tracks run right through the resort and in as much as I didn't see it, i was told it comes through 3 times a week and goes from the Shangri-La's Fijian to some other hotel to the north. You can hop on and go to other resorts to do other activities.
4 With the exception of one, all the staff were very friendly and tried to help as much as they could with the limitations they had to work with. They kept me entertained and if it wasn't for them and the owners wife, I would have probably left after 1 day.
5 The owners wife was very nice and went looking for a coconut so that the chef could cook us a traditional Fiji meal
6 The fact that there are not a lot of people staying here they personalise the meals to suit the occupants. If you want to have fish and chips, you get that, If you want a curry, you get that. Pretty cool and flexible.

All in all this is a place you only go to to get away from people, technology and the activities. If you are looking for a very quiet place to entertain yourself and just relax.

Response from namukabay, Guest Relations Manager at Namuka Bay Lagoon Resort
Responded 18 Jul 2012
Bula Vinaka, Thanks for your time and your review. We were very dissapointed to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay with us and apologise for any inconvenience caused. however the issues which you have brought up are somewhat false regarding: 1. Getting a much cheaper rate online, "cheaper than the backpacker accommodation in our website" 2. The resort having no activities at all. 3. That we do not organise any day tours, day trips etc etc. Facts: if you got a "much" cheaper rate online, cheaper than the backpacker rate "including" your breakfast and dinner please do let other guest know of the website you booked from so they can saave heeapps aswell and provide your booking confirmation and voucher for verification. all online booking sites inform the traveller to provide their vouchers upon arrival in your case you did not provide the voucher. it is impossible and untrue that you booked for a beachfront family villa including your breakfast and dinner much much cheaper than the backpacker rate on our site. For your information Namuka Bay Resorts affiliate namely Tourist Information Centre is the longest travel agent in nadi and most probably in the whole of Fiji which sells all the tours, accommodation, rental cars anything which the guest require we can arrange and book at discounted price. So for arranging tours and activities for you wouldnt be a issue for us. the resort provides great snorkelling in the lagoon, kayaking, lime-stone cave visits (protected by fiji museum), hand-line fishing, horse riding on the beach, archeological site visit, bonfire on the beach etc etc. its a shame you could not experience the "Real Fiji Living" while you were in fiji and opted to go 5 star which is being offered EVERY WHERE IN THE WORLD. Quick Facts About the resort: Wifi internet Available electricity 6pm-6am and upon request between the Shangri-Las fijian resort and Intercontinental Golf and spa 25minutes drive to sigatoka town approximately 1 hour away from the nadi international airport arrange tours, day trips, accommodation, rental cars etc etc Vinaka Vakalevu Rezwan

To be clear, I did not stay here because they overbooked me. The way it was handled between the Booking Agency and the Resort "manager" (Fayaz) was incredibly unprofessional. My money taken, over a week while in Fiji to get it back... here is my letter of complaint to them:
********

Barbara & Ali:

I should inform you that I indeed received my refund from Namuka Bay. Although I received it the night before my very last day in Fiji. Thank you for the delivery to my hotel.

To be honest with you guys, I am extremely disappointed with the way this matter was handled for these reasons:
1. Failure of neither Namuka Bay hotel or the Booking Agency to inform me of the overbooked rooms BEFORE I arrived to the hotel. Luckily I had the foresight to call and confirm before actually travelling to the hotel.
2. The inability of Fayaz and the Booking Agency to work together and bring this matter to a QUICK conclusion. It was clear to be neither of the parties wanted to accept responsibility for the refund, so I had to deal with this it WHILE ON MY HOLIDAY. In fact, I did EVERYTHING that everyone told me to do (Seria, Barbara, Fayaz) but no one was able to do their part on time or as promised.
3. Failure for Fayaz to deliver the money to the Booking Agency Office in Nadi on time. He promised me this on the telephone and I arrived there at 4:30 exactly as I promised to one of the staff and the doors were closed. I returned to my hotel afterward and the refund was not even delivered to the hotel as promised by Seria.
4. I had to call Fayaz before I left to find out what went wrong and he passed the phone on to yet another "Manager" and I was told that you guys "forgot" to deliver my refund. I don't know about you guys but 715FJD is a lot of money to me and it is hard to forget that sort of thing.
5. The gentleman who delivered the money to me requested that I give him 30 FJD for delivering the refund!... Apparently someone (either Fayaz or some other "Manager") volunteered my money to that young man. He is an employee with Namuka Bay! The responsibility for to pay the young many is that of the Booking Agency OR Namuka Bay!!!! Why should the customer pay?! I was overbooked and inconvenienced and my money taken!!! Still, I was happy to pay the young man 30FJD only because the issue was resolved before I left Fiji, although very last minute and caused stress on my part during my short holiday.

Let it be known that I will be actively giving poor reviews to Namuka Bay Resort on the internet (TripAdvisor, Hostelworld, LonelyPlanet, etc). You guys should really have a process setup for dealing with customer disputes or overbookings, my situation was poorly handled -it should not have taken over a week to resolve but only 1 day to resolve.

Please forward this e-mail to Mr. Mashuk Ali on my behalf as I don't have his e-mail.

Regards
-Orlando

Orlando was booked by one of our agents in town . The agent failed to communicate with us on availability and took all the money and banked it in their account. The agent called me asking to assist and they would return the money back to us on return of their Manager. I gave cash to our resort driver who gets paid weekly for his runs. Wasnt aware that he would take advantage of the guest. He was counselled regarding the same.PLEASE NOTE THAT ORNADO NEVER GOT A CHANCE TO STAY AT THE NAMUKA BAY LAGOON RESORT AND HE WILL NEVER FIND OUT THE EXTENT OF OUR FIJIAN HOSPITALITY .i WOULD LIKE TO ADVISE HIM never to trust agents and try to call the resort directly to be sure of a place. The Namuka Bay Team wishes him well and hopes he can book directly with us oneday.

I stayed here with my sister for a total of 6 nights in the Beachfront Villa, out of 10 nights in total in Fiji. We took the bus to Cuvu (which has some cheap supermarkets and an ANZ ATM) for about $5FJ each. The taxi to Namuka was $15, along a very dusty dirt road that takes you to the resort, which is in the middle of nowhere. From the resort, the closest shops are in Cuvu, which is a 1hr walk from Namuka. I would definitely recommend bringing some of your own food as the meal options are limited mostly to curries and frozen deep fried things at the resort. Bear in mind that there is no cutlery, jug or plates etc to make food in the rooms, so microwave meals are not always the best. I personally found the food quality here to be mixed - some was very good and some very bad. The fish, prawns and mussels come from frozen store bought packets; due to this the Mussel lolo dish gave me mild food poisoning and tasted awful, and the fish in the curry was thick and chewy from being frozen. There is also no dessert options so bring your own sweets unless you want to walk for 1hr to get an ice-cream! There are less fresh organic things here than we expected, and very little fruit and veg. I respect that the cyclone damaged some crops 5 months ago, but I feel that there is not much veg in general here as most supermarket food is processed and imported, not fresh, and the main export here is sugarcane.

The beach is lovely, but windy!!! Coming from Wellington, NZ's windy city, I can safely say that the wind here is bad. For the first 3 days it was too windy to comfortably sunbathe on the beach or lie in the hammocks on the lawn of the Villa's. The rest of the time at Namuka was calm, but being right on the south coast you should bear this in mind when visiting - I myself was not expecting this.

The lagoon is mostly shallow and full of corals so I wouldn't swim here without a snorkel or sand/beach shoes, as you are very likely to cut yourself on the coral. It was deepest in the morning and shallow in the afternoon, but you can walk around the beach to the right where there are better spots to swim, although it can be a long walk! When I say shallow I mean that you can walk to the edge of the lagoon only knee deep in water. One of the snorkels that I borrowed leaked, so I would recommend bringing your own. The snorkelling is super cool and a great thing to do at the resort without having to take a boat out, as it's right on the beach.

The staff were very lovely and friendly, though sometimes vague when asked a question. The owner visited sometimes, and was mostly heard yelling at someone on the phone, which I found unprofessional. The receptionist is great, but does the jobs of about 5 people as everyone else seems to be running on 'Fiji time', which is another way of saying lazy in this case. This meant that the receptionist wasn't always available when needed, and you could be waiting a long time for something small.

I gave the resort 3 stars in my review, as it really is a 3 star resort. Don't come here expecting 5 star treatment. Our first room had no hot water in the shower, and we had to be moved. There is wifi at a charge, but you can only use this outside reception or in the dining area, not in the rooms, which is very inconvenient and should be offered at the price you pay for the Villa. If you want to have a private conversation choose a quiet time of day as the dining area isn't very private. The single bed in the room was a foam mattress where you could feel the slats beneath it, but the big bed is okay. The rooms are nice and worth staying in, it usually pays off to spend more money on a room in Fiji, unless you're backpacking in dorms or something along that line. From my experience in Fiji, the general living standard is very low, for example people live in tiny tin houses with concrete blocks holding the roofs in place. This means that some cheaper places are in very bad shape. Don't trust pictures over reviews as it is very easy to take pictures of the beautiful things in Fiji without including the bad. If I was to do Fiji again I would stay on the outer islands, we met a couple who did the islands then came to Namuka, which is a good idea. I would also suggest to hire a car or scooters if you can, it will make getting around here easier and cheaper. Overall I liked Namuka, if more money was put into maintaining it the resort could be 4-5 star.

We stayed here for two nights. We wish we could have stayed for two years. Mohammed the manager is such a nice person and goes out of his way to help you in every possible way. Sylvia the cook, provides delicious, cheap, generous sized meals. Simon is just an amazing person. He showed us so many new and interesting things, and went out of his way to make us comfortable. At this resort you are really made to feel like part of the family. The accommodation is basic but serviceable, and if you spend more time in your room then just sleeping you need a reality check. This resort is fronted by a magnificent reef, and there are so many interesting things to see and do. Excellent value for money and I truly recommended a stay here.
We are already planning a return trip!

Delicious food. Amazing beaches. Super friendly staff!!! Nice place to relax and enjoy fiji time!

Be sure to check out the cave and old village ruins when you´re here. Sylvia is a great cook and SImon is a great tour guide. We really enjoyed our stay-- we felt like family!

This beautiful resort is set in the interiors of sigatoka and takes around 30 mins from the mainroad however the final destination is breath taking!

The view from the villa is very serene and peaceful and its a great place to wind down!

The friendly staff add to the beauty of this place and we were overwhelmed at how helpful and kind they were.

The only drawback is that electricity is provided only from 7pm to 6am daily but we loved it nonetheless as it gave us a break from technology.

I would definately come back again!

Its a great place!
