Royal Davui is an outstanding Fiji island destination.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 May 2024
Royal Davui is a truly excellent destination. The best that we've been to in Fiji.
Lovely secluded, intimate island. Very comfortable burés, elevated on the island with great views. Excellent inclusive meals, a great bar and dining area overlooking the Pacific with a wide variety of cocktails and an impressive wine list.
The best house reef for snorkelling in Fiji, and a circumnavigable island, free swimming or snorkelling. Good accessible diving. Highly recommended.

    This resort honestly makes you feel like royalty! Beautiful accommodations, and excellent dining. The snorkeling here is not to be missed. The staff could not be more attentive. They were exceptional. Thank you to Jenn, Abby, La, Matthew,Latiti? , Saki , Joe and Georgy. Georgy your recipe for Kokoda has been added to our family cookbook. Honestly so easy and good!
    I would be remiss not to mention the excellent tropical massage we indulged in also. Thank you ladies! I apologize for names missed or misspelled. This resort is tops on our list to visit again.

    We have been fortunate to spend many holidays in Fiji with our kids and also as a couple celebrating special occasions. Our first time to Royal Davui and we will be back! Absolutely, without doubt the most beautiful island resort with the most amazing community of staff. We've been to a number of the adult only resorts and this one is our favourite so far.

    The resort is in the process of a bit of an overhaul of it's interiors with new furniture and they have done a beautiful job! Retains all the Fijian charm with a modern twist. Very nice job!

    The Villas
    Very large and VERY private. Way more private than any other resort, plenty of space between the villa's, you can't see or hear anyone else. We had a Sunset Villa, which was beautiful to see the sunset from our deck, enjoying a glass of bubbles. The pool was great, not cold like some have said. It was perfect and we used it often! Beautifully clean, serviced twice a day. Very comfy bed and pillows and high quality linens.

    The Food
    Exceptional. Lots of healthy options. Accommodated GF well. Lots of variety. Probably too much food for us, but we just skipped an entree or two.

    The Marine Life
    Amazing. Beqa Island Lagoon provides an awesome reef with beautiful marine life literally right off the beach of the resort. It appears more colourful and alive, perhaps not as damaged as some of the more popular resorts further North that see more traffic.

    The Activities
    Really great quality paddle boards. I'm a massive fan, and enjoyed lapping the Island multiple times. Thank you for the free cocktails for my efforts!! Sand cay picnic definitely worth it. Jetski tour very fun, loved it. Night snorkelling a must. Outer reef tour awesome.We didn't do the sunset cruise but all the guests loved that too. We loved the evening actives, cocktail making, Kava night and crab races. They strike a fine balance of social interaction with group activities whilst retaining privacy for guests.

    The Spa
    We signed up for the Indulgence package and it was well worth it. We thoroughly enjoyed our 45 minute treatment each day. Excellent massages, a beautiful set up.

    The Pool
    Loved the pool area, really well maintained. Always very quiet, beautiful views and an opportunity to have a drink poolside (just raise the flag) and relax and read a book.

    The island attracts a lovely group of guests, with just the perfect mix of social activities and privacy. The Fijians make every resort special, they are just so engaging, personable and connect in a very special way. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a wonderful stay. Chris and Grant and your team, you're amazing. See you soon!

    Room tip: Sunset Villa worth it.

    My husband and I chose Royal Davui Island Resort for our two-week Fiji honeymoon, and it surpassed every dream we had for the perfect romantic getaway. From the moment we arrived, we were captivated by the sheer beauty of this intimate adult-only paradise, with its mere 16 villas offering a luxurious and exclusive experience.

    The staff at Royal Davui were not just attentive, but they truly cared about ensuring our stay was beyond exceptional. Their warmth and friendliness added an extra layer of delight to every moment. And speaking of moments, the food! It was not just excellent but delightfully varied and fresh.

    Our first week in a sunset villa was stunning. The view of the sunset was breathtaking and the villa itself was luxurious. It felt like stepping into a dream every time we opened the door.

    For our second week in the lagoon villa, while it was equally stunning with its view of Beqa Island and the lagoon, it was slightly more windy. It offered a different perspective and equally stole our hearts.

    The activities at Royal Davui were absolute gems. We highly recommend indulging in them all. From the romantic sand cay picnic and the sunset cruise, each experience was a highlight. Visiting the village school was heartwarming, and activities like fishing and jet-skiing injected a dose of excitement into our days.

    And let's not forget the spa! A sanctuary of relaxation and rejuvenation. The personalized massages were a divine treat, leaving us feeling pampered and relaxed.

    Our Fiji honeymoon couldn't have been more perfect, thanks to everyone at Royal Davui Island Resort. It's an experience that will forever be remembered in our hearts. Vinaka for creating memories that will last a lifetime. <3

    We are actually stayed a bit earlier in the year than this but this is the earliest I can date the review to. I have been meaning to do this for so long. We are going to hopefully rebook and felt they certainly deserved a great review given we are going to come there again!

    It is such an amazing place. The attention to detail is amazing. The food is incredible and it is in the most beautiful beautiful spot. We really can’t wait to come back

    Trip of a lifetime! No regrets! It's worth every penny! Just GO! Sunset Villas are DEFINITELY worth it. Opt for Villa 5 if you can...has sunset views off the end of the deck (so the lowering sun isn't direct into the villa), and full ocean views across all the decks. Turn off the lights and go out at night to gaze at the stars. UNBELIEVABLE. The service...could NOT ask for better. Go to the bar early before dinner...you'll make friends for a lifetime. If you're up for adventure, take the day trip to raft the Upper Navau River... oh... my... heavens... never seen so many waterfalls! The Sand Cay...just WOW! We went to celebrate our 30th Anniversary and my husband's survival of a major medical crisis. We simply could not have picked a better place to celebrate! Just GO!

    Room tip: The sunset villas are the best!

    Villa 5’s sunset views and night skies are truly spectacular - with no light pollution the decks of all villas make for great stargazing.
