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.

An amazing place with all you need.
Our group of 12 adults from 2 families stayed at Shambala late October/early November 2016 for 11 nights. This property is amazing from the minute you walk through the front door. Our wonderful host Dani met us and showed us around. She was fantastic and was on hand to organize anything from taxis, village tour, snorkelling trip, Fijian dancers, airport transfers and even dinner reservations. We used the chef Prmal a lot during our stay for dinners. We enjoyed all of his meals especially the seafood buffet, chinese buffet and the Lovo dinner. Thanks to Prmal also for his help during the day, he even drove and got us some bread one day, when we realized after just coming home we didn't have any. Thanks also to Sileshni and her lovely staff who cared for the house during our stay, the ladies were always very friendly and helpful. The actual house itself is beautiful and has everything you might need. The house is set on the beautiful Coral Coast, so swimming, snorkelling, paddle boarding and canoeing is all at your fingertips in the crystal clear water. The gardens of the house are lovely and tended to by Felise, he does a great job. Thanks again Dani for an amazing trip and you made our first trip to Fiji an unforgettable experience.

Absolute Heaven
We stayed for a week at Shambala in October when we went to a wedding. The place is absolutely beautiful in a fantastic location. Every amenity at Shambala was first class and the locals who provided the service of our cleaning, cooking and massage were so so accommodating. We would go back to Shambala in a heart beat and hope to do so in the future. Cannot speak highly enough of this beautiful place.

Superb holiday rental with ervrything you could need
The pictures of this property do not do justice to how good it is. The host, Dani, could not have been more helpful - from responding quickly and accurately to even giving us a lift to Sigatoka to go to the markets. Dani, along with her marvelous staff made this an enjoyable holiday. There is a supermarket just a 10 minute walk away for anything you may need. The outlook across the lagoon to the coral reef is spectacular and the facilities provided excellent. Why cook yourself when the lovely Sileshni can cook you a meal. Definitely a return location.

Memorable Family Celebration!
Shambala is a wonderful place to celebrate life with extended family or friends. So lucky to go there for Granny's 70th with all our family[14] gathered, from NZ and Norway. Beautiful place, roomy and wonderful house maximising special position on the beach. The staff were simply wonderful, friendly, warm and so willing to make our stay as fabulous as possible. Couldn't have asked for more. Danielle marvellous to deal with,going the extra mile & nothing too much trouble. Would have loved less rain and more sunshine but maybe next time! Vinaka vaka levu to you all.

Luxury and privacy while close to the Coral Coast attractions and resorts.
Bula ! Andersons My family spent 10 days relaxing and enjoying Shambala as our secure and private base. Its locaion at Maui Bay allows for short journeys to resorts for fine dining or the local cheap bus to Eco cafe for your fat fix on the beach or trips to Singatoka to shop or watch the local Rugby, or a local village tour with Kava ceremony, the beautiful waterfall, local links to fishing charters, with golf for every level available, but a very special course is only 45 minute drive away. I have not even mentioned Kayaks and snorkeling gear, reef shoes, golf clubs, fishing gear all available at Shambala. The freedom Shambala gave us made for a more enjoyable holiday with the grown family than we would have had at a large resort nearby. The staff are wonderfully helpful and the Fijians are a friendly people. I would have given Shambala 5 stars but unfortunately next door has become a building site and the noise is inescapable at times. I believe this is temporary.

Bula to you too! Thank you for choosing Shambala for your special birthday/family getaway! As they sing in Fiji "Happy Long Life To You...". We are so glad you enjoyed the house and nearby activities. I too look forward to the new construction activities ending, but thankfully they are temporary and I truly apologise again for their interruption. Vinaka and warm regards, Danielle & the friendliest team around ;-)

Fabulous
Our extended family of 8 plus a baby stayed here for 12 days and would highly recommend it to groups or families. Danielle is a fabulous host, very helpful and accessible. We did not have a working phone and had trouble arranging bookings and taxis, so she lent us one of hers which made our lives so much better. We could also contact her through emails as access to the internet is included in your final cost. The accommodation is spacious, clean and great for a group of people as you can live communally with little fuss. The separate bedrooms with ensuite are excellent. The living area is conducive to whole group activities as well as more individual ones. There is a decent kitchen and a separate bar with fridge. We loved the fact that we could kayak, snorkel and swim at will. Everything we wanted to do or needed was on site. Saleshni is wonderful - she came to clean and tidy everyday and is able to cook a great curry and co ordinates daily life really well. A suggestion for the future is to provide curtaining for the doorways for each bedroom as not only does the light stream in, but also there is a lack of privacy. Our daughter brought a suction cap block out curtain for her baby's room, which was invaluable. Also the lighting in the living area was insufficient. The dishwasher also needs servicing. However these are trivial issues - we had a fabulous holiday. We found taxis to be a little expensive and a bit of a monopoly - we should have caught buses more often. All in all we would highly recommend Shambala - a far better option than a resort stay for us as a family who wanted time together and to chat, play games and eat together. FABULOUS!

Bula Vinaka! It was an absolute pleasure having you and your lovely family at Shambala; we are so glad you enjoyed the house! I also appreciate your feedback; next time the house is empty for a few days, I do intend on installing curtains/blinds! (it has been a slightly debated issue among us the owners and managers - but you have just confirmed what needs to be done). Thank you for choosing Shambala for your Fiji escape, we would love to see you again. Vinaka and warm regards, Danielle & the team.

Beautiful location for a vacation.
I stayed here recently with family, we had 3 adults and 3 children and this is a perfect spot. 4 separate bedroom buris, one of which has adjoining bedrooms and a shared bathroom and the main house with kitchen, living room, pantry and laundry. The view is spectacular and as there are stairs down to the beach this makes the house and pool area invisible from anyone walking on the sands below. Danielle the manager, was ever so helpful and attended to every request that we had....and there were a few. The staff were friendly and cooked for us as required. I cannot recommend this lovely property highly enough.

Amazing spot, perfect for a group of friends or family
Shambala was a perfect retreat for a week away - amazing location! We were a group of friends, one couple with a small child and the house was perfect with 4 separate wings (ensuited) and one with an additional bedroom for children. It felt that you had your own space while also being able to enjoy the time with friends. The house was well equipped with everything you need (kayaks, SUP's, snorkelling gear etc.) and was decked out with BBQ, pizza oven, bar area, well stocked kitchen, DVD's, WIFI and all the essentials. Close to shops and some great local restaurants as well. Danielle was a brilliant host and the housekeepers (Salishna) were extremely friendly and helpful. Would recommend to any family or large group. Thanks Danielle, we had a great time!

Quality property & location with great service
Great home design for separate families with detached bures for sleeping and a central house and deck for coming together. All the inclusions are great quality and it comes with kayaks, SUP's & plenty of snorkel gear (reef is off the back yard!). Service was great with a cook and housekeeper included who looked after everything and left you time to enjoy the place. Opportunities for trips to local waterfalls, villages or deep sea fishing can all be organised by the staff. Also massages, local dances etc. Youngest child during our stay was 3yo and the pool isn't fenced so need to make sure any kids can swim or you'll need to keep an eye on them. Local shops are a short walk away so you can top up on essentials. Thanks Danielle and Salishna for a great stay!
