Comments This resort is only a few minutes from the Somo Somo dive sites-ie Rainbow Reef,white wall, etc. We dove all the named sites then did some exploratory dives that even our dive master ,who had thousands of dives there,had never been to. The diving was terrific-This was our 16th Fiji trip and by far the best diving yet. The resort is only 2 years old and still improving. We stayed in a lux African Safari tent-complete with a sunken bathtub. It is built into the hillside with a huge wrap-around veranda-you can sit there and look over the beautiful waters. As is true of all Fijians they were outstanding. Our Divemaster,Pio< was as good as they come. I think he enjoyed the dives as much as we did. His knowledge of the dive sites and the tidal effects allowed us to see the soft coral when it was fully open. They will have a new dive boat when you read this-which is being built specifically for diving to the owners specifications. We dove almost every day 2 or 3 times so we did not do any shore activities as we have done them on previous trips. Food was very good. If you are looking for a small Fijian style resort with fantastic diving ou should look no farther.
