Comments We arrived at Voli Voli after a 2 1/2 drive from Nadi Airport. The resort is very nice. We had a beautiful room overlooking the water with a washing machine...a great perk and a queen size bed. The furnishings in the room were very nice. It had a beautiful balcony overlooking the water and the dive shop area. Since The resort is on a hilltop area, there is a good amount of uphill and downhill walking to get to the restaurant at the dive shop. Our package included three meals a day which were delicious. Service was excellent at all of their facilities including three bars and main restaurant. The pool area was excellent with a nice in pool bar. We felt a hot tub would’ve been a really nice addition to the area. All in all we’re very happy with the resort Part of our trip. We traveled with two other couples who felt the same. The diving with Ra divers was equally as good. The staff was excellent and responsive to our requests. We dived with Tamu....he was great at helping to find many critters and getting us home safe. Even though weather conditions weren’t optimal we still made it to the marine preserve most days, an hour plus boat ride. Diving at Mellow Yellow and Purple Haze sites was spectacular. Couldn’t believe the diversity and health of all the marine life. So many Soft corals....numerous tropicals.....and great macro life.....Loved it all and would go back anytime. We happened to hit unusual rainy weather for October, however Simon and his crew and staff really went out of their way to accommodate us. I really can’t say enough good things about our experience with Ra Divers and Voli Voli Resort.

Underwater Photography 1 (worst) - 5 (best):

Subject Matter 5 stars Boat Facilities 4 stars
Overall rating for UWP's N/A Shore Facilities 4 stars
UW Photo Comments Great dives for photography. I love macro and used a new Olympus TG-5 with Ikelite housing with a wide angle dome.....microscope setting is incredible! They don’t actually have a camera room or any sort of facilities for cameras except a bucket on the boat and a dedicated rinse tank. There is no “shop” to purchase gear or items you may forget. Bring everything you need! My 5 star overall rating is for the great opportunity for photography. Their actual facilities don’t really have any dedicated photo room or on site work area.
