Fabulous quiet and relaxing place. surrounded by nature in front of a magnificent private beach. the staff are charming and attentive. well located on the island, close to the diving centers. Thanks to Tanelia for the warm welcome and to chef Raj for his cuisine. I highly recommend.

I had an amazing sojourn here at Wellesley Resort. The natural setting can’t be beat. I kayaked, snorkeled, lounged at the beach, and ate great food. Taniela, really made the stay with excellent, attentive service at all times. I was made to feel most welcome. Thanks Taniela and Wellesley. I’ll be back one day!

Paradise lost”

Potentially a treasure, location of the highest order . Beautifully unique with its crystal clear waters , sandy beach and great snorkelling . Sadly despite the staffs best efforts to work with what they have to make our holiday special the resort is unloved by the owners. They must decide it they want make it a premier location on the coast or let it fall into further decay. We feel some much needed love and desire to give guests what they paid for would be all it would take . The location deserves so much more . We weren’t expecting 5 stars by any means but were disappointed even so . Wouldn’t take much tho to get it there . It’s really worth the effort as it truly is something special and just needs to be bought back to its former glory .

Overall, service was good. The beach location is a major plus. A private beach for you to swim and chill out on.

The room itself was clean, was cleaned in a timely manner too by staff.
The only downsides to the stay is the internet wifi is absolutely terrible, virtually non-existent. If you are stuck during a cyclone, God help you. The wifi is only available in the reception/ dining area and its a tiny pocket wifi. Because of the remote location, there is no data reception even if you have a FJ sim card. They only switch it on certain times too. Pretty bad.

There wasn't much things to do, would've been nice if there was snorkelling gear, SUP boards to take advantage of the nice beach. Food was ok, but very limited options. There was no mention aswell of massage therapy services even though it says on the website.
They need to do a bit more work, post covid re-opening.

Room tip: great beach

Reviewed 16 February 2022

Regarding a stay January 22 - In summary: this resort has a lot of potential, but should not be open for guests yet given its current state of disorganisation.

This review should be more harsh but will take the obstacles the owners faced at face value. They told that preparing the resort for the past month was a huge undertaking. Still, given the 'jungle' and disarray the property was in at the start of Dec 2021, more honesty with guests about the state of the resort now is needed.

Pros:
* The beach nearby is beautiful and very private. There is a local village nearby that apparently takes guests for donation-based tours
* The two pool villas are nice if available and offered a lovely private afternoon in the sun
* The grounds are beautiful (there is sporadic scattered rubbish but it seems a lot more clean than what we were told it looked like one month earlier)
* The resort put on fireworks and offered kava over New Year's

Cons - just some examples from our experience:
* Lack of adequate food and drink options - consistently unable to provide things on the menu
* No snacks or food aside from meal times. Food only served at certain times and if you miss these times you're stuck
* Difficulty ordering food (possibly due to language barrier?): the food served was frequently and completely different to what we ordered
* Very limited bar: beers and one wine. Cocktails offered were frankly not good
* We did book the day before arriving, but the resort didn't have our booking on arrival. Staff were able to fix us a room, then immediately gave that room away to another booking rather than reserving us the room they had made available as an appeasement. The listing suggested the resort had a pool available: due to staffing issues it was not ready. Update: looks a lot less murky and green on our departure Jan 1st
* Requested payment for our accommodation which had already made online through Agoda
* They charge 4% for international card payments: the most paid at any other property was 3%
* Pre flight PCR testing is 200 FJD; this is higher than 180 FJD standard rates quoted to us at the start of the trip by airlines and multiple resorts
* The rooms are basic and not all lights are working - otherwise the amenities are ok. There are still ants in the rooms

Perhaps by March this year the resort will be more ready for business but at this stage my partner and I would suggest against staying here. Again, a shame, given its potential as a beautiful spot!
