“A Taste of Paradise” This was my 4th visit to Fiji where I have mainly stayed at commercialised resorts, Bularangi Villa was just something else! Amazing does not even begin to describe Bularangi Villa! From booking with Ali through to leaving Fiji our trip was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and the Villa is definately 5 star. If you are looking at getting away from everything and experiencing the 'real Fiji' (with all the luxury Bularangi Villa offers!) I would highly recommend staying here. It feels like your own private world. After a long year this was the perfect place to unwind and recharge the batteries, I cant wait to go back!
“Awesome place to stay in Vanua Levu” We wanted a grand tour of the Fiji islands and needed a place to stay on Vanua Levu. We found Fiji Beach Shacks online, probably through Tripadvisor. The owners were very easy to deal with, very friendly!
The house is way up on a hill overlooking the water. Sunset views are spectacular. Of course, the 100 steps up to it allowed for a built-in workout every day. Cabs in to town were quick and easy to arrange. There is a book in the house with all the to-do phone numbers and recommendations. We snorkeled Split Rock, which is a short walk down the road toward town and a short swim out. Not to be missed! The other direction on the road is up to the Cousteau resort, which we walked to for a very expensive lunch one day.
The house looks brand new. It is very 'beachy' feeling in its openness and colors. Comfortable, quiet, great views, nice pool (now even better, I hear.) The deck was great. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, flatware and appliances. Not much on the 1-station TV, though.
We arranged for a trip out to the bay to see spinner dolphins, went diving with Collin from Koro Sun (fantastic!), snorkeled every day and enjoyed the great restaurants in town.
Looking back on it, we can't believe how nice this place was for what we paid for it. Great experience and we have tons of pictures to remember it all by.
“A paradise home away from home with a world class reef at your d” Our family of four called SigaSiga home for four months in 2009-10 and the Villa was a perfect fit. Beautifully-situated on a lush 119 acres, we found the Villa to be clean and perfect for our needs. The furniture is comfortable, the kitchen is well-equipped and the space is cool and comfortable. There is a/c but we chose to keep cool with fans and the gentle breeze blowing through well-screened windows.
We spent most of our stay exploring SigaSiga's extensive reef system, which is truly world class. The hardpan is full of interesting critters and offers some really nice beginning snorkeling spots at high tide. (Be sure to pack some reef shoes!) For adventurous and experienced snorkelers, the double-fringe reef is teeming with life. While gorgeous, this is not a beach like you'd find on Grand Cayman or other "tourist beaches." If you are looking for that, you may want to go elsewhere. For reef explorers though, this is paradise.
There are a number of beautiful hikes in the neighborhood as well and Koro Sun Resort is a walkable distance away. We preferred visiting Jim and Louise at Yau Kolo Campground, who serve the best and coldest beer around.
We relied on the Nagi Nagi bus and reasonably-priced taxis to take us into Savusavu town for supplies. When we didn't feel like cooking, our neighbor and host Sunita Chand provided us with delicious Indian curries, dahl and samosas for a very reasonable fee.
We were charmed by our local hosts during our visit. The Chand's are truly lovely people. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them as well as our other Fijian neighbors who live a short distance away. Note that this was the way we wanted it though.
The property has changed some since our visit, thanks to weather and landscaping changes, but we couldn't think of any place we'd rather stay upon our planned return to Fiji this summer.
“Perfect Fiji getaway” This was the best Fiji Holiday ever!!! Private and relaxing. The staff are wonderful, nothing was too much trouble. The owner Patrick went out of his way to provide us with a great relaxing holiday experience. The beach is right on the doorstep, the snorkelling was perfect. Great for families with children, or relaxing with friends. We will be back, nothing in Fiji comes close to this paradise.
“Paradise!!!” Staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful! They were always checking up on my group to make sure we had everything we needed. When we wanted to do activities or sightsee outside of the resort, the staff would set it all up and drive us to where we wanted to go.
The food was amazing. Very delicious and also healthy. Lots of fresh caught fish, and fresh fruits and veggies from the garden they have on site.
The property itself is GORGEOUS! The rooms are big and spacious and the bathrooms are huge. Showers are amazing, and there is even a beautiful bathtub.
This place is paradise!! I would highly recommend it! Perfect for couples, groups of friends, families with young children.
