Moody's Namena is the perfect destination for serious divers and nature
lovers. It is the only resort on a 110-acre island surrounded by a lovely
lagoon and barrier reef which was designated a marine sanctuary in 2004.
The island is covered by tropical forest with hiking trails that lead to
secluded beaches and it is also a bird sanctuary. During our stay we saw
countless red-footed boobies courting and building nests, as well as many
other species of tropical birds. The resort's grounds resemble a botanical
garden and the staff even grows greens and vegetables for the kitchen.
There are only six comfortable bures (cottages) perched on flower covered
cliffs, with great views of the sea and coastline. The staff (many of them
related) made us feel so welcome that it was difficult to say goodbye at
the end of our stay. The dive team (George, Gina and Vitale) was very
efficient and showed us several lovely sites, even though the strong winds
whipped up the sea and lowered the visibility - needless to say, the day we
left on the one hour boat ride back to Savu Savu, the sea was as smooth as
an inland lake!
We will definitely return to this little paradise
