Amazing location and wonderful food. We loved having the menu predesigned. Quiet and secluded private beach and every activity you could want in Fiji close by or available for arrangement. The room is a little out of touch and not the best quality but they...More

Bula Craig Our Bar & Restaurant both have fridges to store our goods. However we can store medical supplies if needed, but there are no fridges in the Bures, due to solar power constraints/eco tourism. Kind regards Corinna
