Nice getaway

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Jan 2018via mobile
Perfect place to unwind. A bit of a drive from Nadi, then 5km up a gravel road. Staff is super friendly. Power is on from 6pm-6am. Not a sand beach, more of a coral beach. Beautiful view from rooms. Food is amazing. Not a resort at all, but still an amazing experience. Ask about kava!

Reviewed 23 January 2018 via mobile

We’d recommend staying at Namuka Bay Resort if you don’t want the cookie-cutter tourist hotel experience. What you get here is a wonderful beach front family-run business with few frills but a glimpse into Fijian life. There are goats, cows, chickens, cats and children on the premises. The beachfront bures are quiet with just the sound of the waves on the reef (although we didn’t have anyone in our adjoining bure – maybe it wouldn’t have been so peaceful if we’d had neighbors?) and wonderful sunset views.

The staff / family were very friendly, attentive and welcoming. The local recipe menu is prepared fresh from scratch with locally produced ingredients and with no 24 hour power there is no fridge, freezer or ice. The food was delicious – and was certainly one of our high points of our stay, particularly as it gave insights into local life (fresh milk from the cow, bread fruit and bananas from the tree, eggs from the chickens etc). Order what you want for the next meal – so lunch at breakfast; dinner at lunch and breakfast at dinner. We liked the fish in coconut milk, the salad with fish and the curries (fish and lamb). Sharing one breakfast between the two of us was plenty. The Fijian bun with coconut milk was a little odd (more like dumplings). Other reviewers found the food overpriced – but you’re paying for the convenience of not having to venture off site. Hot water was available at no charge to make tea and coffee in your room. Bottled water was available for purchase. If you want instant pizza, hotdogs and ice on tap, this is not the place for you.
The lack of 24 hour power was ideal for us as it supported our intentional “disconnect”. The generator kicked in reliably each evening and we were able to get devices charged and do a quick email check. The ceiling fan, along with keeping the blinds open at night kept us cool and we weren’t plagued by mosquitoes like we were on other islands. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. Again, if you want air-con and a fridge in your room, this is not the place for you.

Although the airport transfers were both smooth and efficient, we would have preferred to have them included in the price as this is more inline with other resorts and would have removed the ambiguity of “are we supposed to pay the driver” which we felt when we first arrived.

There were issues with the water pressure during our stay which meant water was only a dribble in the shower when we first arrived. These were not the fault of the resort and were part of the charm / experience but should be noted. They were apparently due to issues with the filtration system at the government plant. The toilet flushed fine once the cistern had re-filled.

We did the free cave tour (lots of talking by our friendly, local guide) and walked the railway line (no longer used other than by a tourist bike tour which looked like fun). We paddled but never swam off the beach as it didn’t look easy to navigate through the rocks/shallow coral. You need reef shoes.
For us this was a great place to decompress as a stopping-point to the other islands.

Stayed for 3 nights in the cheaper rooms. Very nice rooms clean and well equipped with fans, towels, toiletries. Also comfiest mattress and softest sheets I've had since being in fiji (been here two years and stayed at a fair few places)

The beach is beautiful and secluded. Only the odd few people walking along, who were all very friendly and polite. Great snorkelling and the reef was one of my top ones seen in fiji so far. A great range of fish too.

Meals were tasty, fresh and affordable. Good to arrange meals in the morning for a set time, as they can take a while as cooked to order.

If you want somewhere a bit different, not as touristy as the coral coast hotels I would strongly recommend here. Very friendly staff too, we brought some snacks and drinks along to save money and they had no problem with us drinking them on our balcony and the beach.

Gorgeous sunsets on the beach! (Keep an eye out for the local goats too!) 😉

This was the 2nd time we stayed at Namuka Bay and it was even better than the previous stay.
The staff is very friendly:
Silvia is an excellent cook with the ingredients being mostly locally sourced, if you like it this way, it is probably as organic as it gets in Fiji. There are several filling dishes to choose from and if asked, local market fare can be cooked for a fee.
This place is away from the beaten track & there is plenty to do, early morning seems the best time to snorkel the reef and when the wind picks up, it is great to explore the inland by foot or take a horse ride. There are also two large resorts in daytrip distance which are worth a visit, due to their location.

Pleasant memories on Namuka Bay Lagoon

This is a very nice place for those looking to relax in a rural and quiet place.
The beach and the surroundings are natural. Walk along old (non-functioning)
sugarcane train line, talk to local people, visit a cave. The family-like atmosphere,
animals, make an easygoing stay!

A relay good place to relax!

Namuka Bay is more of a hideaway. its a place allows travelles to totally disconnect with technology and reconnect with nature. Thank you for your comments. The solar hot water and the solar wifi and power through generator ensures minimal impact to the environment. it our pleasure to entaertain guests who appreciate small family owned resorts in our unpolluted part of the pacific . Behold the the private lagoon and myriad coral and marine life.

Its a bit of a hike from Nadi to Namuka bay but worth it! The road is unsealed and you really feel like you are going somewhere special as the driveway is about a 15-20 drive in itself. The rooms are beautiful, the view is stunning, the staff are lovely and welcoming. I forgot my cell phone in a taxi, and they called the chef who lived further up the driveway to race up a hill and get it before it was gone forever! The chef cooks lovely food that is freshly picked from their organic garden on site. If you are expecting wifi and luxuries of a resort, probably not the place for you. But if you want a true Fijian experience that is disconnected from the busy-ness of the main island, with the ocean sounds all night from your beautiful room and lovely Fijian hospitality - it's perfect.
