Comments Nananu Beach and Dive Resort was fabulous, we enjoyed every minute of our stay on Nananu-i-ra. The Fijian people are tremendously welcoming and made us feel part of their family from the first moment we arrived. Very private bures located on the top of the ridge provide for cooling breezes and amazing sunset views. Bures 11 and 12 are the highest and most private. Food was delicious and large portions. 24 hour power, no TV, no phone, but excellent cell coverage through Vodaphone. Separate A/C units and small refrigerators in the bures, outdoor showers on private patios (no indoor shower). Better beach than Wananavu, also features the only pool on the island. Sea kayaks, tennis, fishing, hammocks, and available kitesurfing and windsurfing lessons nearby.

Kai Viti promptly picks you up at Nananu's private pier at 8:15 am. Excellent dive staff, custom built dive boat with plenty of room, flat step-off exit, and easy entry ladder. All dives were dictated by your own computer, DM's found interesting critters during dives. Kai Viti is the only land based op to go out to the Bligh water, and that is a 3 tank day at an extra fee. Approximately 1 hour boat time to dive sites in the Bligh, other great sites are an easy 20 minutes from Nananu resort. Weather and divers dictate trips out to the Bligh.

Mosquitos in Fiji, breezes help, but bring repellent. Great trip, excellent diving, fabulous resort. We booked air directly through Air Pacific via LAX. The "airline of Fiji" could use a little attention. Long travel days, arriving in Nadi after 10.5 hour flight from LAX, then 2+ hours in a van to Rakiraki, then another 20 minutes by boat to Nananu. Long, but well worth it.
