Cannot fault Castaway!

This was the fourth time we’ve stayed at Castaway and we can not fault it. The staff are beyond friendly and take the time to get to know your name and ask about your day - at some resorts this can feel forced but at Castaway they are genuine. The rooms are clean, Fijian style and the bed is so comfortable. The food is AMAZING - from the wood fired pizzas, to the a la carte menu at Waters Edge, to the buffet, to 1808! The meal plan is a must. So many activities to choose from - you can be as relaxed or as adventurous as you like. The kids pool is fantastic for kids of all ages and the adults pool with swim up bar is fantastic. The beach is beautiful and the water so clear. We also used baby sitters and kids club this year and felt so comfortable with staff and leaving our 3yo there - she hates preschool but LOVED kids club - they’re definitely doing it right!

Initially Castaway can seem a little more expensive, but there are so many free activities there (that you’d pay for at other resorts) and the meal plan is excellent value and saves you $$. We loved Castaway and will be back again and again.


Stunning location, beautiful food, friendly staff

A stunning location with very friendly staff that want to ensure your stay is amazing. Food is fantastic and a high quality. The kids love the kids club and the staff are so enthusiastic. Have visited twice with my family and we plan to return again.


castaway island

This is our fourth time back to Castaway island which speak volumes in itself we always have the best time the people couldn't be more friendly, the food is excellent and it was great for the kids. The beach activities are great and the kids club wine can be a little pricey but it always is on the islands so maybe pick a few bottles up from the airport or mainland before you travel out. We got the direct transfer to the island which I also highly recommend as we were there in 20 minutes as appose to the South Sea cruises which can be 2 hours. Highly recommend report and holiday!
