This place is beautiful 😍...and is probably underrated because not many locals know about it. The staffs are friendly and food and beverages are reasonably priced. The chef alters your meal according to your taste bud. Also if you are going in groups of 10 or more; they'll even host a 2-course beachside buffet BBQ dinner for just $20pp for the locals. And let me tell you, they went overboard with hosting us...bonfire was fun!
Not only that, but they also have several Vegan options!

Happy Hour is 5pm to 7pm with $5 off all cocktails

Dining area allows access to Wifi Internet and pool time extends till 8pm. They also have couple of books and board games to keep you occupied.

Do try this place!

Easy fast check in. We were met at our car by Sue who lead us immediately to our room.

We stayed in the private pool suite. Room was clean with everything required in there. The private pool and courtyard are an amazing feature and well maintained for the middle of a jungle.

Beautiful untouched and quiet white sand beach with crystal clear waters. Great deck by the beach to lounge and watch the world go by. We had the perfect start to each day by walking along the sands.

The village 50m down the beach is welcoming and Mary gives a good traditional massage in her beach side hut.

Although at first glance the restaurant menu looks rather simple; however every single dish was done to perfection. The chef (Nacanieli) prepares meals with the most brilliant balance of flavours from a simple base. You can taste everything. We were WOW'd by every meal and cannot give him enough compliments.

Scooby gave great friendly service and some awesome conversation.

Only recommendation is that you stock up on insect repellent as the resort is in the middle of a lush nature reserve so the inevitable wildlife is around.

If you are looking for a private couples retreat to escape the world we could not recommend Wellesley highly enough.

Room tip: The pool rooms are closest to the restaurant and facilities.

This place was simply amazing all around. Where to start? Well I would stay the staff are wonderful, we really connected with them and they played a big part in making our overall stay in Fiji very enjoyable. We really bonded with Mere & Sekove (also known as Mary and Scooby). They were fun and welcoming and friendly and also helped out a lot with regards to the day trips that we planned, helping give good recommendations and organizing logistics. This place really is special for so many reasons. Amazing authentic Fijian vibe, not cheesy or touristy, beautiful property, great people, great location right in the jungle, and great food too. I would recommend renting a car which makes it so much easier to go on adventures. This is a great part of Fiji for adventures, but its also amazing if you want to stay at this beautiful quaint resort with a beautiful beach. I think a lot of the info out there on tourism misrepresents this part of Fiji as not having much to do, there was a ton to do and we explored a lot. The jungle is amazing and snorkeling at the resort and at nearby Beqa island is unreal. Highly recommend this place, i will for sure be back!

We stayed at the Wellesley for four nights in one of the pool rooms, which was cool, spacious and tastefully decorated. The staff could not have been lovelier. Mary and Talitha spent lots of time getting to know us and ensured our stay was perfect. Big shout out to Scooby in the bar for his good chat and the best shirts, he's an absolute credit to the resort!!! Sabir and the rest of the team work so hard to keep the gardens looking gorgeous too. The food was very tasty, reasonably priced and generous in portions, the Pad Thai was one of the yummiest I've had! We were lucky to come when it was very quiet but with only 15 rooms it's peace and serenity was amazing compared to the noisier resorts down the road. The beach is one of the best I've experienced on my many visits to Fiji, kept clean and weed free and drops off quickly for a good dip. We'll definitely be back and recommend to our friends and family. Thanks so much again! ❤️🇫🇯🏝️😊

The resort has a privileged location in the middle of a nature reserve surrounded by wonderful lush green vegetation and with direct access to a nice beach.

The hotel is however not well maintained and the staff not very attentive. There were big dirty spots and water damage on the walls behind the bar, the outside furniture were not clean and several not in good shape. Our room was not clean, a lot of hair and dirt on the floor, dust on lamps and furniture and even “leftovers” from the previous guests on the toilet seat.

The place doesn’t correspond with the photos that appears on their website or on the booking websites.

We appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback on your stay with us. I'm shocked that you state that the room was not up to expectations. I will most definitely share with our housekeeping immediately. I hope you'll consider returning again in the future.

We spent three gorgeous nights at the Wellesley Resort at the end of November. The location, the weather, the staff, the accommodation, the food (lots of vegan and gf options available) - all exceeded expectations. It was the perfect, quiet, paradise escape. We spent our days lounging oceanfront or by the pool, consumed heavenly food prepared by the excellent chef Nathan (he even cooked the fish that my partner caught - multiple ways and incredible each time), visited the local village down the beach, and fully relaxed under the loving and hospitable care of Talica and Mereani. Talica checked in with us daily and made sure we were well looked after and Mereani made our meal times a breeze - we felt at home (without having to do anything!). Can't forget to also mention Sabir, he shared many local area and fishing tips with us. We wholeheartedly recommend Wellesley and wish to send immense gratitude to the staff for a memorable and delightful time! Vinaka!!!
