Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Unforgettable views!
We absolutely loved our stay at Totoka Kalou! It was nice to get away from the hotel resort scene. This home had the most amazing view! You can either watch the sunrise or take in a beautiful sunset. This home had everything we needed. Kerry was very responsive when I had questions and provided me with a guide early on to help with some additional planning. Poonam made a delicious dinner for us one evening, so take advantage of her cooking! She also assisted us with some laundry we had. There is a small grocery store at the base of the hill as well as a few restaurants, like a diner, pizza place and wok kitchen which we enjoyed for lunches. We also enjoyed the pool facilities that are located close to the beach. We did not rent a car while there so we were able to walk down to the pool in about 10 mins, the restaurants, less time than that. If you are fairly active and have no injuries, you should be fine for the walk but the hill is quite steep. We would love to stay here again!

When resorts are not your thing.
Just returned from a memorable week staying with our son, his partner and their nine month old son. In Fiji for a family wedding held at the nearby Warwick resort where the rest of the family stayed. Every time we visited the resort (or any of them for that matter), it gave us an even greater appreciation for this beautiful home. Perfect for two families with separate sleeping and bathroom facilities coupled with a fantastic kitchen, dining, lounge and outdoor area. Ma and Jone would have to be a couple of the most helpful and friendly people we have met and contributed greatly to our stay. Absolutely perfect for those not interested in the resort style i.e. experience the real Fiji. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

Superb house
Beautiful, spacious house with superb views over the Coral Coast and Maui Bay jetty. Very convenient location between various Coral Coast resorts, and a short walk to the Maui Bay jetty and clubhouse swimming pool. The house has lovely timber floors, spacious, clean bathrooms, a large deck, air conditioning and its own generator for power blackouts! The staff Ma and Jone (John) were amazingly friendly and helpful, cooked us a full lovo and even took us to John’s village. The only thing I would change if I could was the mattress on the bed - as someone used to a pocket coil mattress I found the foam mattress a bit uncomfortable but it must be very hard to satisfy everyone in this regard. Personally staying at Totoka Kalou was way better than staying at a resort!

We're pleased you enjoyed your stay and the Coral Coast. The only mattress that is foam is the children's trundle bed, as that's all we could find to fit this smaller sized bed. The queen and bunk beds are standard spring mattresses - but we will endeavour to find spring mattresses for the trundle one day! Bula from Fiji :)

Gorgeous large holiday home, would easily accommodate two families.
If resorts aren't your thing this is the place. It's the second time we have been to Fiji with our family, and traveling with a 14 year old and a 19 year old we wanted not to be on top of each other. It's very spacious with glorious views. Lovey having a housekeeper; the beautiful Kalesi. Kalesi is a wonderful cook, the traditional fish cooked in coconut milk; which Jone showed us how to do, (the coconut milk); was fabulous. We also loved the Fijian vegetables. Going to the markets and buying unfamiliar vegetables if you have time is a must. There is a Hotel close by and the club pool. Snorkeling is best if you turn right at the club house and walk until you see asphalt over the rocks - enter the water there. There are still lovely corals although there has been bleaching a couple of years ago. Abundant fish life. There is some snorkeling gear - the reef shoes are great but I would take my own equipment. If you eat traditional/available food it's amazing. Highly recommend The He-Ni-Uwa amazing food. Talk to the owner for the best horse rides here. Waterfall was great! Jone organised a village visit, which was great fun. Also the Bendarra Inn for food - get there early enough for the happy hour. Word of advice - order Fijian, if you want steak wait till you get home! The only downside was the trade winds - but there was always the hotel pool down the road to have lunch and lounge by the pool. And when its not windy it's the best spot in paradise. Loved it!

Lovely to hear how you enjoyed the views and local attractions. You can be unlucky with a run of trade winds (as it sounds you were), but mostly there are calm days in between - where at times you wish the trades winds back for their refreshing ways! The lovely Kalesi and Jone enjoyed hosting you and we would all welcome you back any time. Vinaka for staying and your kind review.

Great views, clean and tidy, well equipped and modern
Totoka Kalou has one of the best views elevated above Maui Bay. It's easy walking distance of just a few minutes (though steep) to the beach, clubhouse pool, and shop - we didn't find this a hassle at all. The house was clean and consists of two identical bedrooms with ensuites at each end, each with queen bed, bunk, and pullout mattress. The living area and kitchen is in the centre, and opens onto a deck which was great for lounging on enjoying the heat. The kids enjoyed the large selection of movies. All windows are well screened so there were no insects inside apart from a few friendly geckos. The kitchen was well equipped, we cooked most of our meals. There are two staff ('house angel' and 'garden angel') who are there most days to clean, cook if required and maintain the garden. While we probably didn't take full advantage of the cooking option, we all enjoyed talking and getting to know Kalesi and Jone ('Johnny'). One of our highlights was listening to awesome singing at church at Jone's village nearby. We visited most of the nearby resorts as day visitors and used their pools, beaches and drank their cocktails and bought some meals. The Warwick was voted the best by our family. We also did a day trip to Castaway Island via Denarau, which was great, though a long day with over 2hrs travel time each way due to peak heavy traffic in Nadi. We found that our best snorkelling on our trip was in Maui Bay, along the beach West of the clubhouse/pier.

Vinaka Josh for your kind review - we are pleased that you appreciated the view and wonderful staff of Totoka Kalou, and that you enjoyed getting out and about to the local sights. So glad Jone was able to show you his village and Church service. Hoping to welcome your family back again one day - all the best, Kerry.

Perfect place to unwind and reconnect
We spent a wonderful week at Totoka Kalou. The set up is perfect for two families or any group really - we had 7 adults. The weather was wild, wet and windy but that didn't stop us enjoying this beautiful spot. The local cafe and Spa at Maui Bay are well worth a visit (or several in our case!). We had a beautiful dinner at He Ni Uwa restaurant - this is a must visit for dinner or lunch - gorgeous view and food run by a local family. Kalesi and Johnny looked after us beautifully - Kalesi took me fabric shopping in Sigatoka which was great fun. Thank you Kerry and Mark for sharing your beautiful home.

Vinaka for your kind review! You were unlucky weather-wise, but did well to make the most of your time at Maui Bay. We're pleased to hear that nothing stopped you enjoying your holiday, and that you enjoyed your time at Moksha Spa. They are lovely people. The sun's blessed us this week - and will hopefully bless you next trip to Fiji. All the very best, Kerry & Mark.

Beautiful Views
Amazing property just a little uphill from Maui Bay jetty and just 2 minutes from Hideaway Resort. Perfect for large groups or families. 2 large bedrooms (sleeping 5 each) off a large central living space all wrapped up with a deck overlooking all of Maui Bay. Large French Doors, lots of plantation shutters, and ceiling fans in every room utilise the sea breeze making the air con units unnecessary except on the hottest nights. The staff are lovely and so helpful. Make sure to take time for a Lovo (traditional meal cooked underground) and get to the Hideaway Resort on a Thursday night for the Firewalking display and Fijian Dance show featuring Totoka Kalou's own gardener Jone (a highlight of our trip!)

Home away from home.
Perched up the hill above Maui Bay, the views of the lagoon are spectacular. The elevation makes the most of cool breezes, so you don't get too hot. The house is extremely well-equipped (there's even an ice-cream maker). A petrol station and supermarket are literally at the bottom of the hill, and beach is easily accessible. Snorkelling is good for beginners, though you need to do it close to high tide. Unless you are a strong swimmer, avoid snorkelling in the lagoon off the wharf, as there are strong outward currents even on an incoming tide. Go down the beach a bit further for the easiest. Kelesi the House Angel comes in on weekdays, to cook and clean. She cooks a mean curry, and will organise a traditional Fijian lovo if you want. We own a beach house in NZ, and Tatoka Kalou feels very much as we would hope ours does. Thoroughly recommended.

Glad you made the most of your stay and found the marine reserve where you can safely snorkel over amazing coral. The lagoon is great jumping off and staying nearby the jetty - particularly on weekends when you can watch the Fijians backflip off it! Thanks for keeping our view and villa warm for us :)

Ideal gathering place
We celebrated our son turning 21 by taking our family to Fiji. We were a party of 7 and wanted to experience more of the real Fiji. Totoka Kalau was great. We had a true Fiji experience and really enjoyed having Sereana and her family join us for a lovo. The beach is just down the hill - Magnificent views. We went diving with the local diving company. Visited some resorts and went to some restaurants. We ordered some meat to be delivered as although there is a great selection of foods in Sigatoka the choice of meat in Sigatoka is limited. We had some lovely meals also at Totoka Kalau with Sereana preparing a lovely curry meal for our arrival. This is a great place for experiencing the Coral Coast .

Fiji at it's best!
Tatoka Kalou is a beautiful place to stay with complete views of the coral coast. It's a 5 minute walk down hill to Maui Bay where many tourists visit. Snorkelling the abundance of coral reef was amazing here also. With car hire we were able to get out and about including river rafting from Pacific Harbour, hotsprings (near the Naviti) and resort hopping where you are treated as a guest of each resort. Totoka Kalou is very clean and the food is amazing!! I've been to Fiji before and found myself bored/resort stricken. Staying here enabled us to have the best of both worlds, relaxed and adventurous! Can't wait to go back!! (Zoom in on the pic! It's must closer than demonstrated.)
