Comments This is a wonderful small luxury resort and spa with only about 15 rooms that is not all about diving. Yet the small dive operation is very high quality. Small and larger boat, only takes Qamea guests, handles both new and experienced divers appropriately. Has very good dive sites 10 minutes away and an all day trip to the White Wall, the prettiest dive site I've ever seen. It is a Fiji must do. Good dive masters and boat drivers. Lots of other things to do. In between dives return to shore to rest area by dive shack or even time to go to your room, except of course on the all day trip. It has a lunch stop on lovely deserted beach.
Killer spa, gourmet food, wonderful service, well appointed and large rooms with luxury bedding, outdoor showers, pool, hot tub and small beach in a cove. AC and fans in rooms and lots of breeze. local Fijian music nightly. order off menu at all meals. Spa and kitchen staff trained by New Zealand experts. Resort owned by wonderful US based owners.
other activities: snorkeling (but crown of thorns has killed reef righ off shore); paddle boards, kyaks, hiking, village visits and did I mention the killer spa?? great for honeymooners or as a wedding spot.
