Just Amazing

We have stayed in Fiji many times over the years, but never in the Yasawas. What a beautiful part of the world and in our opinion completely different to the other group of Islands. Octopus resort and staff were all amazing. We will be back ASAP. Thank you to all the staff for everything. We miss you and the island. Vinaka

Exceeded our expectations

Our expectations were pretty high given it's not the cheapest place but everything was wonderful. Firstly, I have to declare they put us in the normal bure instead of the premium (no hammock). They sorted this out by crediting our fishing. The room however was excellent so we were very happy. the food is top quality. The facilities wonderful. But it is the staff that make it!!! We were so sad to say goodbye after only 4 nights. Highly recommend!
