Peaceful Disconnect in True Fijian Style

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Apr 2024
Perfect location and amazing staff. Where do we start ! On arrival we were greeted with a lovely cold drink on the dock and introduced to staff. From that point on we were always addressed by our names by all members of the crew. Such a lovely resort - our beach front Bure was perfect ! Total disconnect with no TVs or internet in our Bure (note internet was available at the reception area if needed). Although we had an indoor and outdoor shower - we never used the indoor one. The 1/2 day trips we took with the resort were fabulous. Both Joes (big and little) were excellent drivers and snorkeling with Ziggy on the garden reef fabulous.
Kayaks, SUPS and snorkeling gear available for use.
If you’re looking for peaceful atmosphere without dealing with larger crowds - this is the place !

        We booked very last minute and the communication with Tropica was easy and stress-free. We arrived to a musical welcome and were treated with kindness at every moment of our stay. The staff were all lovely and always noticed when we had been away on daytrips, greeting us upon our return. The food was lovely, particularly the traditional meal served on Wednesdays. All-round, the cleanliness of the room, the cooling air-con, the pool and the watersports available for free made this a thoroughly enjoyable 4-day retreat. Would recommend to all who are looking for a quiet and serene escape. (We were given a free foot soak too at the spa and splashed out on a few more treatments too which did not disappoint!)

        Room tip: Sea front tables often get reserved so just make sure you ask.

        An incredible location and the accommodation is very comfortable and private. As a solo traveler, I was made to feel extremely welcome and never lonely with the beautiful friendly team who anticipated every need. The day spa was exceptional, with a good menu, professional staff and quality products. Nice wine choices and the meals were delicious, with a varied menu each day and generous servings. An abundance of activities if you can tear yourself away from lounging on your personal deck, just gazing at the amazing view. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and definitely returned home feeling rested, relaxed and restored!

        My wife and I stayed for four nights for our honeymoon. We love the place. The manager and most of the staff are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Charlie, Sunny and some other staff are the stars. The room is clean. Bed and pillow are comfortable. Breakfast is good with some choices. Dinner is also good with plenty of choices, menu is changed every day. Price is also reasonable. And there are plenty of activities you can do everyday, and it’s changing everyday. The massage is very relaxing. We booked the Black Friday deal, so we received free couple massage, one free guided snorkeling, and one bottle of sparkling wine

        Room tip: If you want to keep a budget and you don’t eat much. You should order from the menu. Don’t get full board or half board

        Utter brilliance from start to finish. The most warmest of welcomes and greeting on arrival after a short informative boat ride from the ferry provided by Ziggy (absolute gent). Sarafina guided us to the reception, lovely tea in hand, to help us get checked in.
        The rooms (bures) were spectacular. Huge, comfortable king size beds with indoor and outdoor showers and stocked (daily) minifridge. The rooms were meticulously turned over every day without interruption or bother.
        The food was delicious, especially on the Fiji night of which food was served prepared from a traditional Lovo.
        I genuinely cannot say that I have ever witnessed a more friendly, caring, likable and invested group of staff in all my days of hospitality. Coming from a service industry background myself, the level of training and care to detail is astounding. I'd like to name each and every person that made our stay perfect but the list would go on and on. However I would like to mention Tasi, Cheri, Mila, Sarafina, Ziggy and the other absolute legend who's name I forget now but seemed to be bar manager. The staff made this stay. Thank you and Ma Te Wa.

        Room tip: Utilise the spa facilities, you won't be disappointed.

        From the welcome at arrival via tender to the farewell at departure, the staff at Tropica made you feel like family. The bure accomodations were very nice with private pool, spacious interior, and private outdoor shower (yes, there was also one indoors). Meals overlooking the water were very pleasant.

        When we visited they are lacking for white sand beach as they are still recovering from an offshore dredging operation that pulled sand off the beach. However, they clearly continue to invest in upgrading facilities.

        This is a destination for adults who want some relaxing time away from city life. It's a quiet location where you're not going down the street to a nightclub (there are actually no streets to take you anywhere; if you're going somewhere it will be by boat!).

        It was hard to leave; would be easy to return!
