Our villa was perfect! Very spacious room sleeping 6 people, comfy beds, a panaramic view of the beach foot steps away, with the pool directly behind us. Our room had an outdoor bath which was great for relaxing after a long day of 'touristing'. The staff were EXCEPTIONAL and made our first time in Fiji unforgettable.. Collie, Jossy, Lo, Loreena, Peceli, Rita & our amazing chef Toni (We miss your french toast daily!) Nothing was too hard for them and it was all done with their infectious big smiles. We fell in love Fiji not because of what the beautiful island has to offer, but because of these beautiful souls that made it hard for us to leave. Our children also miss them terribly! (Aged 17, 16, 8 & 5) We all left abit our hearts with the staff of De Vos. Last but not least Chris the owner, that went above and beyond to ensure our stay was memorable. Always checking in to make sure everything was ok. THANK YOU DE VOS FAMILY!!! WE LOVE YOU!

We stayed 5 nights at De Vos with our 3 young children. We simply loved our stay. The food was amazing (thank you Toni!), air conditioning was cold, there was great snorkelling right out front - we loved seeing the friendly baby sharks most days.

We were the only guests, and felt very spoilt having the place to ourselves. The kids loved the pool and the gorgeous lounge area.

The staff were amazing with our kids and so friendly and accommodating. They really went above and beyond to make our whole stay enjoyable. The staff involved the kids in making a lovo, braided their hair, organised horse rides, took them on a reef walk, and they did a village tour with Rita, visiting a waterfall and local school. Their nightly dance parties with Loreena won't be forgotten in a hurry! Coli's pinacoladas were excellent too.

Our bure was beachfront. It was spacious, very clean and tidy, with comfortable beds and ample pillows. The room was serviced often, and spic and span (thank you Logi!). It was great to have the bar fridge, and tea/ coffee making supplies, and coffee plunger. The swimming pool was great and the outdoor bathtub in our bure was a lovely surprise.

I highly recommend the Tipsy Italian across the road if you are looking for tasty, authentic pizza.

Your place is a hidden gem. We will definitely be telling friends and family to come and stay. Thank you!

Room tip: We had a rental car, which was great as we had the freedom to explore the area, eat out, etc.

Our family party of 22 enjoyed a wonderful experience by staying at De Vos last week.
It exceeded all our expectations with staff friendliness, clean spacious accommodation, great meals, a pool and facilities like kayaks, paddleboards, gear for snorkelling on site. Massages by Rita were enjoyed by several of us.
In the time we were there our party had two birthdays (cakes provided by Toni), and one ring blessing ceremony all set up for us with palm tree decorations, balloons, outdoor lights and outdoor seating.
We experienced a kava ceremony, volleyball on the beach, a reef walk, and trips arranged by shuttle to the waterfall, bush walks. shopping in Sigatoka, golf, and a boat trip with fishing and lunch to an island. Nothing was too much trouble.
We thank Annemarie, her staff and Loreena, Toni, Colly, Rita for being there to make our family stay a memorable occasion for all of us.

It sounds like you had an amazing time at De Vos! I'm so glad to hear that your family party of 22 had a wonderful experience. The staff's friendliness and the clean, spacious accommodations definitely enhanced your stay. It's great that you had access to a variety of amenities like a pool, kayaks, paddleboards, and snorkeling gear right on-site. The massages by Rita must have been a rejuvenating treat, and it's lovely that she was able to cater to several members of your party.

It's fantastic that De Vos went above and beyond to celebrate the special occasions within your family. The birthday cakes provided by Toni and the beautifully set up ring blessing ceremony with palm tree decorations, balloons, outdoor lights, and seating must have made those moments even more memorable. It sounds like you had a diverse range of activities available too, from kava ceremonies to volleyball on the beach, reef walks, and trips to nearby locations like waterfalls, bush walks, shopping in Sigatoka, golfing, and even a boat trip with fishing and lunch on an island. The fact that everything was arranged seamlessly by the staff shows their dedication to providing a fantastic experience.

On behalf of Myself, staff, and the team at De Vos, I'd like to extend our gratitude to you and your family for choosing to stay with us. We're thrilled that we were able to contribute to making your family gathering a memorable occasion for all of you. Should you need anything in the future or have any further feedback, please don't hesitate to reach out. We look forward to welcoming you back to De Vos in the future!

16 of us from Australia and New Zealand converged on the incredible De Vos Residence crew with the wonderful Sue overseeing! Nothing was ever too much for them.
Colee, we all fell in love with you and can't wait to be back to see you all again! It shows that you all love working there with one another, there is always music, smiles, dancing and laughter!
The meals were incredible and abundant with special mention of the fluffy pancakes Rita makes who was also kept very busy with massages on the beach, sooo relaxing listening to the waves.
Volleyball, kava ceremony, BBQ, swimming, horse riding, kayaking, surfing, hair braiding, singing, dancing, bonfire, eating, sleeping, eating again, reading, sun bathing, laughing and laughing, massages, relaxing, walking, boat trips and my absolute favorite, snorkeling! So many beautiful fish to see!
Even though there were 16 of us, we had our own privacy with our separate rooms and ensuite. Every morning we woke to a spotless house and were called for meals and events by the beating of the drums which sounded fantastic and could be heard from wherever you were on the property.
We have decided as a family that we will be coming here for our holidays from now on, our experience was so wonderful!
Vinaka vaka levu to you all!!
See you soon 🩷
