Comments Raki Raki is a beautiful 2 ¼ hour ride through farmlands north of Nadi. There are refrigerators in the rooms so ask the driver to stop in a village to pick up some beverages and snacks. Wananavu (wonderful in Fijian) is a luxurious place perched on a hilltop overlooking the water where you will be pampered. The room was well equipped with A/C, fans, 24 hour power, a great shower that overlooks a garden, French press coffee maker and a refrigerator. The garden rooms are a great value. The meal plan is well worth it as ala carte prices add up fast. The staff prepares an extravagant barbeque and entertains the guests with festive dancing and singing one night. Gentle massages are available on site. One of the best places we've ever stayed.

Kai Viti Divers treated us very well. They picked up our bags at the room, set up our gear on the boat, cleaned our gear and stored it each night. The boats were well equipped and organized. Dive staff is friendly and service-oriented. The reef and fish life are healthy. The hour long ride out to the farther reef can be choppy when windy but is well worth it. The closer reef is good with a strong current dive with sharks. The dive masters are happy to point out special creatures for those interested.
