My husband and I came to Fiji for our honeymoon and found that Maqai Eco Resort developed a very special place in our hearts. From the moment we arrive and stepped foot on the slice of paradise that is Qamea Island, we instantly became part of the Maqai family with the small and intimate team at the resort (not to mention the wonderful and adventurous experience of getting there). Staying at the resort was us, another couple (also on their honeymoon) and a single traveller. The staff at Maqai had a unique skill of balancing the social and private aspects of the resort, allowing us to enjoy the company of the other guests whilst also allowing us to feel like it was only my husband and I alone on this beautiful island. The relaxed atmosphere was like nothing else we experienced in Fiji, and the warmth of the staff towards us, particularly Miller, John and Tax (only to mention a few) was so authentic and genuine, you wouldn't know we weren't family. And of course we cant forget Suki baby, the cutest and laziest resort dog who had my heart from the word go. The Chef Luci was amazing with my dietary requirements, and although limited for choice, the food plan was spectacular, and perfect for my “menu anxiety” I cannot fault a single thing about the resort, staff, or activities which is why Maqai Eco Resort easily won as our favourite place in all of Fiji (possibly even the world)

Visited with friends in March and brought my family back in April. Cathy and her team are amazing, such an incredible and relaxing experience. Great food, fun waves, good fishing, and utter relaxation. Staff are incredibly warm and accomodating, nothing is to much trouble. Kids ( including teenagers ) had one of their best holidays ever - offgrid and zero complaints, they didn’t want to leave. You will rethink the 5 star options once you have been here and will almost certainly come back. A truly amazing experience of the real Fiji and the nicest staff in the South Pacific. Simplicity at its best

The experience me and my partner had at Maqai was incredible!! Amazing!! The way how Kathy treated us was excellent! There is no words to describe how Luci and Fabi cook, you will be having the best food of your life! John will keep you entertained while he gives you an awesome hospitality service and for those ones who surf and spear fishing Uli and Bali will take you to the best spots!! Maqai is just simply amazing place, surrounded by nature and peace but most importantly every single person that work there to make possible your dream holidays. I’ll come back for sure! Vinaka Maqai ;)

The setting of the resort is beautiful, on the water surrounded by lush rainforest. The rooms are just a few steps away from the beach offering great views. Lie in the hammoc on what feels like your own private beach, or swim, snorkel or dive on the reef just off the beach. Enjoy empty waves or spear some fish, and come back to consistently delicious meals prepared every day. All of the staff were so kind and welcoming and helpful and put in every effort to make sure we had everything we wanted. The rooms were kept spotlessly clean and the girls always added a thoughtful touch to make sure we were always comfortable. We loved every minute and were sad to leave! But we will be back 🥰 Vikana !

If you're looking for a true Fijian experience, I highly recommend Maqai! Beautiful beach, great surf, and snorkeling just outside your front door. The staff were highly receptive to all our needs and made us feel like members of their family. Volleyball with the staff, fishing tours, and an amazing snorkeling adventure filled our five day adventure. The most impressive was the wonderful food! Do yourself a favour and visit soon.
