Comments Best service ever, staff had genuine smile on face. Food was very good ,especially curries . Resort was rebuilt after cyclone Winston destroyed it 2 years ago , and is very nice. Not much to do around , except walking to village 70 min one way. Transfer is 1 1/2 hour on a bumpy road. Shore dive is good on SW side with mature and juvenile ribbon eels. Dive boats are good: big one cat with twin engine had little engine problem ,Little single engine requires back roll. Dive staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable: finding nudibranchs , flat worms , anemone shrimps , scorpion fish ... Sharks (grey reef and reef white tips ) on every dives. One banded sea snake. One juvenile green turtle, schools of barracudas. Pod of 40+ pilot whales add spinner dolphins on surface for 45 min on surface ! Current on some dives but manageable ,coral still recovering from Winston but already good at most sites .
