Villa
Shambala Fiji is Located along the pristine Coral Coast of Fiji’s main island Viti Levu, Shambala (meaning ‘place of peace and tranquility’) is a large villa style home. Shambala Fiji is right on the water’s edge, where you have access to a white sandy beach with crystal clear sparkling waters – perfect for snorkeling among the fish and the coral, paddle-boarding or perhaps a slow kayak ride to see the neighbouring sights. This beach is great for children wanting to play in shallow waters or for adults who want an adventure. You will also be a stone’s throw away from Maui Bay’s jetty from which you can take off on fishing charters, surfing trips or maybe a boat ride to a nearby remote island. WE OFFER ALL INCLUSIVE MEAL PACKAGES, or IN-HOUSE CHEF OPTIONS.

WE OFFER ALL INCLUSIVE MEAL PACKAGES, or IN-HOUSE CHEF OPTIONS. Contact for these details Shambala Fiji comprises 5 bedrooms (sleeps 12), 4 full bathrooms plus toilet, 1 main kitchen/dining/lounge/office, 1 laundry, plus 1 outdoor BBQ/Bar room with full amenities plus your very own private pool. All bedrooms have views of the ocean and private courtyards. There is an undercover carport by the front door to park your car if you have chosen to hire a vehicle. Shambala Fiji is fully serviced, including laundry. The house also comes with kayaks, paddle boards, snorkel/fishing gear and more. The house manager is on-call everyday and is never too far away if needed. There are several delightfully quiet spots on the property where you can escape with a book, let the sound of the waves send you into your siesta, hide from the children, enjoy a hammock under the shade of a tree or lay on the sun lounges to get a dose of Vitamin D. There is much to do in Fiji if you want to leave the comfort of your home away from home. Contact us if you would like information on activities available in the area. There’s great intermediate-advanced surf just 5 minutes down the road (Hideaway Resort), accessible by a 5 minute paddle out. Local advise can be offered by management at the time, fair chance we will be paddling out for a surf there too. This wave is best surfed 2 hours before high tide when winds are low; always a small friendly crowd there. Great, fun wave.

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.

Highly recommend!
Highly recommend! Fiji is a great place in many ways, whether you like surfing, fishing, diving, snorkeling, paddle boarding, hiking, etc. We stayed at Shambala and we have to say, it's a perfect mix between privacy, view, location, comfortability. The place is kept clean, you have everything you need to relax, cook, swim, etc. I can't wait to be back!

Family Holiday
We have had an amazing week with all our family here. 8 Adults and 5 children, ages 2 up to 12 Swimming was main activity for the children and adults but paddleboardin,snorkeling and beach activities a highlight. And then the service,it was outstanding,we chose the all inclusive package and had no regrets. Our chef catered for all the family those that ate fish,those that only ate chicken,and the 5 children at every meal. We couldn't have been happier.Joel (the Manager)was on hand for any queries and organized a days fishing and an outing to the Wildlife park,. I can highly recommend Shambala,and we had an amazing time together. Thank you to Joel and his Staff.

Rest and Relaxation in Abundance
From the moment we arrived at Shambala we were 'on holiday'. The greeting and welcome we received were second-to-none. We were a family group of 8 adults and 7 children (6 years and under) and Shambala suited our needs perfectly. Each family group got their own bedroom(s) and bathroom. The layout of the property was great for giving younger children their much needed sleep/naps while still allowing their parents to be part of the group. We went for the chef option and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this. None of our group had to lift a finger - all the shopping, cooking and cleaning was taken care of by Joel, Saviri, Shaleshni and Adi. The mothers of the young children actually got to relax and enjoy their holiday as well. We were treated to massages from Makarita (for a fee) which added to the experience. The swimming pool was well used by all as were the beach and paddleboards (supplied by Shambala). If you are looking for a relaxing break then this is the place.

Best vacation ever
Island Paradise doesn't begin to adequately describe the beauty, tranquility, and serenity of Shambala. The uniqueness of the setting never fails to impress, and is only surpassed by the talent and kindness of the staff that Joel has hand picked to meet your every need. Come hungry! The cuisine is exquisite and Chef Seviri ensures that every bite is a dining experience unto itself. 5 star all the way

Fantastic
Shambala is a great place for family gatherings as opposed to resorts where communication is less with everyone in separate rooms. Got to celebrate a graduation here and the facilities were just too good. Joel and his staff were welcoming and treid to get everythin in order before our stay as the place was empty for some time due to COVID-19. We took advantage of a special rate and would definitely go again if the chance came by. Would surely recommend to others. Cheers

Paradise in Fiji
This week has been an incredible experience. We were very well taken care of by Joel and his staff. The house manager was attentive and very helpful with planning excursions, even late at night. The chef that they brought in for us is a must have. He was very personable and his food was the best we had on the island. It would be a mistake not to get him for the whole week when you stay here. Shambala is a first class house with a first class staff.

Perfect family holiday and lovely staff
Perfect place for a family holiday with 4 separate villas and stunning sea views of the coral coast. The staff were lovely and made great recommendations and kept the place clean and did our laundry daily. Enjoyed the massage by the sea, snorkelling everyday at the semi-private beach, private pool, the lovo and the large kitchen/living where everyone could hang about even while the children slept. Would definitely recommend

Wow.
We all absolutely loved our stay at Shambala. I have stayed many places in Fiji of all different types. This is 1 of the best. The friends that came with me fell in love with Fiji and Shambala. We all will be back. The pictures do not do this wonderful place justice. We all felt so relaxed and comfortable. The staff were great ( more like friends than staff) and always happy and smiling. We all like cooking and found almost everything we desired in the kitchen. Joel was wonderful to deal with. Although we didn't get to meet him. Maybe next time.
