About to leave this beautiful island. The Staff is fantastic and a special shout out is needed for Junior (Ju Jioji) one of many dive masters on Thresher, for going above and beyond in taking care of my family. Memories made that will not be forgotten. Recommended to all divers for an amazing dive destination.

Room tip: Bring your heart and mind to be touched by these amazing people

We went to Beqa Lagoon Resort from Jan 13 - 20th and had an amazing time. We were traveling with a group of 12 people which were all divers except one couple. After the trip and listening to all of us discuss our dives they are going to learn to scuba before our next dive trip. We had requested the 6 Bulas on the beach each with a personal plunge pool. The staff at this resort are all the most friendly resort staff I have ever met. They all act like you are the most important guest and do everything to make your stay the best. Our group of 10 divers were all on the boat called Mako and had Amazing Captain and Dive Masters including Junior, Sivvo and several others that I can't remember their names. The weather for our first 3 days was a bit rainy and caused some really big waves and current. On our very first dive we jumped in and had 3 or 4 good sized sharks swimming around us the entire dive. I have only ever dove with Nurse Sharks and once saw a Hammerhead in Cozumel. When I first saw the sharks and at least one was a tiger I was a little worried but quickly realized the sharks didn't care about us at all and I was able to relax. The second day of diving was our day for the famous shark dive. The DM and Brandon (I think he said he is a marine naturalist) gave us a very thorough briefing. Once we got to the site they told us the current was really strong but as long as we held onto the ropes all the way down we would be protected by the reef at the bottom. We are used to Cozumel current but this was crazy, we felt like flags on a pole in a hurricane. When we managed to get to the bottom they were right and the rest was great and there was so many fish and sharks I was just mesmerized. We heard from the other groups that when they went the current was gone. The diving the rest of the week was awesome and the colors of the reef was something I have ever seen. I would recommend this resort to any divers and our friends that came to relax and didn't dive said they had an amazing trip as well.

Room tip: Make sure you declare anything you have that is on the lists. I wrote down all food etc that we brought and they never looked at the form but we had it in case they asked.

We booked our honeymoon at Beqa Lagoon resort so we could dive with sharks.

I read several reviews, good & bad but decided that the location and shark dive experience outweighed the potential negatives.

Diving: We did 15 dives in 5 days. The reef dives were fantastic, even though the team said the viz wasn’t great. The dive team were the highlight of this trip, they have a laid back style but help you with everything. I barely lifted a finger but they want to make your diving as enjoyable as possible.

Free Shore Dives: The reef is directly in front of the resort. The boat reef dives and shark dives are incredible but we had one of our best diving experiences 50m from the resort. We dived with 2 octopuses

Shark Dives - this is one of the main attractions at the island and it did not disappoint. My mind was blown and the dive team were exceptional at making us feel safe and shepherding the sharks underwater. This experience is definitely for experienced and confident divers. Yes, they protect you but you do have very close encounters with Tiger sharks and bull sharks.

Rooms - we stayed in the cheapest room and it was brilliant. Air conditioning was great, we were greeted with flowers and a fruit platter. There were no locks on the room but each room at a safe for valuable. The water pressure was low but manageable.

Food: Excellent - we are both vegetarian and the food was just fantastic. All meals were heathy, freshly cooked and each day you got to decide what to eat the next day. We were never hungry. We did bring our own snacks for when out diving and for in between lunch and dinner.

Staff: Beqa offers something that is special. It is like a big family, within a week we knew all the staff by name. Every one of them was friendly, caring and treated you like a friend.

Activities: Each day there are 3 activities. These range from reef snorkel, fire walkers, village visit, waterfall walk etc. It’s an opportunity to learn about the people who live on Beqa. There is plenty to do even if you don’t dive.

Overall: Most of the problems I read in reviews about the cleanliness, food and air conditioning have obviously been fixed.

I’d 100% return and recommended to anyone to go to Beqa Lagoon resort.

I will be forever grateful to everyone on the island who helped make our honeymoon so special. Thank you

Room tip: Bring a water bottle to fill up and use throughout your stay. Buy snacks before you arrive on the island

1. The people! I won't list names as I know I'll forget some but the staff at the resort is hand's down, the best! I've never felt more welcomed, more at home, more like I'd made new friends like I did last week at Beqa Lagoon!
2. The spa! BEST vacation massages I've ever had (notice the plural - after the first, I had to have more).
3. The food! Every single meal was very, very good! Huge portions and great flavors. As a non-diver I did eat my share right along with all my diving companions though.
4. The activities! The activity staff was great in putting together fun things to do and I learned SO MUCH about the history and culture of Fiji! Unfortunately I missed the village visit but was happy to be able to meet some folks when the choir and the kids visited the resort.
5. The diving! I'll insert for my diving husband here. Great dive masters, wonderful dives. The shark dive and accompanying education was phenomenal!
6. The location! While the bus ride from Nadi to the boat launch was long, it was beautiful. I swear every single person we passed gave us a huge wave. Fiji definitely knows how to make visitors feel welcomed! The island feels remote and private. Simply beautiful!
7. The size! I've never had an experience at a resort this small nor where our group had the whole place. Divine!
8. The house reef! As a non-diver I spent most of my mornings paddle boarding and snorkeling the house reef. Saw some beautiful corals and some days it was so alive with colorful fish! Paddleboarding out to the further edges of the reef was the best as the reef got better further out.
9. Vacation tattoo! I've never felt inspired to get a vacation tattoo but when I heard that an artist who'd done some of the dive staff's amazing work was coming I immediately got in line! This was a vacation that I definitely wanted memorialized!
10. Time! This resort, this island, this country somehow provided a magical ability to slow time for me. Really great vacations usually speed by way too fast but not this one! Each day lingered on beautifully and while I could have stayed longer, I was ready to go home....hopeful to return again.
Cheers Beqa Lagoon Resort!!
