Castaway Island Fiji is an ideal tropical island enjoying swaying palms, refreshing sea breezes, pristine beaches, beautiful clear calm waters and colourful reefs all waiting for you to explore. Castaway Island Fiji is one of the most popular island resorts in Fiji and has been voted one of the top 10 resorts in the South Pacific Islands for families.

Evoking the sense of a traditional Fiji village, Castaway Island Fiji is set amongst lush tropical gardens and features individual thatched bures (bungalows). Each individual bure showcases authentic high vaulted ceilings lined in hand painted tapa, seamlessly blending a traditional Fiji island experience with modern comfort. Bathrooms at the Castaway Resort have also been recently refurbished.

With a range of activities, Castaway Island Fiji offers guests the perfect opportunity to explore your adventurous side and give windsurfing, parasailing or a ride on the banana boat a go. Snorkelling at Castaway is also fabulous, straight off the beach. However, if you just feel like relaxing in the gorgeous natural surrounds, the swimming pool or hammocks scattered around the resort are the ideal escape. Children are well catered for at Castaway Fiji Resort with a Kids Club, Village Tours and Banana Boat rides. Castaway Island Fiji is the ideal Fiji Resort Accommodation for a relaxing island experience whether you are a couple, family or friends travelling together.


Castaway Island Fiji has 65 traditionally thatched Fiji style bures (which is the Fijian word for bungalows) with a choice of ocean view, beach front or island setting. Each features a high-vaulted hand-painted 'tapa' lined ceiling, resulting in an amazing Fijian ambience in each bure. With a sliding privacy screen separating the two bedroom areas, the spacious bures make the Castaway experience comfortable and memorable.

Epic place

Second visit to an epic resort. I'm staying at a different resort right now and it is nowhere near castaway. Do yourself a favour and book this resort, you won't be disappointed 


Amazing. Beautiful friendly staff. 100%

We recommend Castaway for a relaxing holiday. Nothing is too much trouble for the amazing staff. Castaway provides activities for those who want to participate and quiet time for those who don't. The facilities are second to none. Sota tale


Ultimate island paradise

We had the most amazing time on Castaway, the hospitality, beaches, kids club and facilities are amazing and made for a perfect break with our family. Can't wait to go back again next year!
