Comments I stayed at VoliVoli March 8-17, 2022, traveling from West Palm Beach to San Francisco to catch the 11 hour Fiji Airways flight to Nadi. Then our dive group traveled on an arranged van from airport to VoliVoli for a 3 hour drive along the coast and through a number of mountains and villages to arrive at the resort.

We were greeted at VoliVoli by the management staff and provided a briefing on the resort schedule (meal hours), amenities, and provided a map showing the location of our rooms. Our luggage was delivered to our rooms. We were asked to leave dive gear outside of our room door so that it could be delivered to the dive shop. We were also briefed on COVID protocols—all staff were masked and guests did not need to be; we were required to be tested in 48 hours after arrival (and all had been tested 24 hours prior to the flight to Fiji).

The resort is built on a hillside with rooms and main facilities on varying levels. This requires walking up and down some fairly steep slopes or steps. The registration area/shop is on a different level than the dining area, which is higher than the spa and dive shop areas. Going downhill from my room was fairly easy, but I found it necessary to plan each trip out of my room to try to minimize the climbs back up which definitely were a workout. Take note: this is not the place for those with bad backs, knees, or hips.

My room was clean and comfortable with tile floors, a balcony with a view to the ocean (down the hill, no beach), a bathroom with two sinks, a toilet and shower. Water pressure in the shower was fair, hot water was not an issue. A small refrigerator housed a pitcher of water that was filled each day, and there was an air conditioner that struggled against the heat and humidity but managed to keep me comfortable. The room key has a plastic fob that needs to be inserted in an outlet near the door in order for the air conditioning to be turned on; thus, when you leave the room the a/c stays off. There is a gap between the outside door and floor that allows milipedes and small lizards and roaches into the room each night. Living in Florida, I'm used to these; others may not be quite as accustomed to either ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here
