Comments 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
