Our stay here was beyond wonderful!! Even before we arrived, Carol made sure everything was in order so that we would have the perfect time in Fiji. She gave valuable advice and really helped our trip go smoothly. She is wonderful! Carol arranged a driver to pick us up (Bobby) and he was very, very nice and he even bought us fresh bananas on the way! We took a beautiful boat ride to Sau Bay with Freddie and Tui and were greeted with beautiful music and one of their adorable friendly dogs! Our room was fantastic--clean and modern (especially the bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower). They lent us snorkel gear and wetsuits for free and they have kayaks and hammocks for free use as well. Shebaz (spelling?) was our chef and the food was out of this world delicious!!!! From the moment we arrived, Sera was so wonderful, cheerful and helpful plus she gives AMAZING massages! Their massage room is unlike any other in this world. It is in this private room where the front is totally open to a beautiful view of the water and you have all of the relaxing sounds of the ocean during your massage. Almost every night, we had live music by Louie and the crew. It was as if we were staying with family that we had known for years. Everyone is so friendly and funny. We happened to stay at the same time as two other wonderful couples which made our stay so much fun because we all gathered around the Kava bowl together in the evenings and enjoyed the music together. So if you go, bring some friends with you because the more the merrier! There is not really a soft sand beach here to lay out on, but a short 5-10 minute boat ride away is Dolphin Bay with a wonderful beach and a turtle we got to snorkel with! We did the day snorkeling trip and we felt so safe with the crew and they set up a delicious lunch picnic on the beach and the next day Carl took us hiking to the waterfalls and it was one of the best experiences of our lives. You will have to purchase a meal plan (no other restaurants on the island) and pay for boat transfers and any extra activities you do so make sure you inquire about those so you know how much to expect to spend. You must do the snorkeling/Dolphin Bay trip, waterfall day trip and massage from Sera for sure. Everyone here is wonderful and laid back, you will love the property and the crew!
Très bon accueil dès le premier contact (un bateau navette vient nous récupérer pour nous amener à l'hotel), confirmé à notre arrivée (guitares et chants du personnel bienveillant et souriant accompagnent notre descente à terre où des cocos frais nous sont offerts.
L'endroit est magique et préservé, dépaysement garanti; tout de suite un sentiment de sérénité et d'exclusivité en découvrant les lieux:
bungalows très bien décorés et très bien équipés (réfrigérateur, cafetière, théière, brasseur d'air, climatiseur,moustiquaire etc...), le souci du détail (eau, cookies faits maison, beaux draps, produits cosmétiques de qualité, fleurs etc...) .
Le restaurant et son deck en bord de plage nous offre une ambiance décontractée et une cuisine délicieuse à base de produits locaux frais.
De nombreuse activités sont à notre disposition (mini voiliers, kayaks de mer, palmes masques tubas, piste de trek, très bons massages et soins esthétiques etc...)
Encore mieux sur place que l'idée que l'on peut s'en faire sur internet; difficile de quitter ce petit coin de paradis et les personnes qui s'en occupent (de bien belles rencontres faites de simplicité et d'authenticité).
Un séjour de 3 jours est vraiment le minimum !
Bula Matthieu, Laura and of course Zoe!
It was wonderful to meet you all and to spend time sharing your experiences with us from a different part of the Pacific. Thank you for choosing to celebrate Laura's birthday with us and we hope that it will not be too long before you all visit us again.
Lolomas from your Sau Family in Fiji!
Our stay at Sau Bay was fantastic- the resort itself was gorgeous and being accessible only by boat accentuated the feeling that my friends and I were really getting away from it all.
Our cottage was spacious, tastefully decorated, and so comfortable, with not a speck of dirt to be found. The front veranda made for a nice outdoor living room to spend the evenings after a busy day out on the water, hiking, or doing nothing at all. On top of that, the main lounge/dining room/terrace was the perfect place for having our meals and just hanging out with a view of the water (to be fair, everywhere in the resort had a view of the water!).
Because we originally planned to focus our time on Taveuni itself, my friends and I initially hesitated to stay somewhere off the island. But, now I can say it was a great decision to stay at Sau Bay. Right outside our door there were already plenty of things to do, but with just an easy boat ride away we were able to explore not only Taveuni, but also the other neighboring islands and villages.
But, the icing on the cake was the entire team there: Carol, Nigel, Baruska, Alma, Pio, Carl, Danu, and many more. They made us all feel so welcome and taken care of during our stay. Everyone was so warm, friendly, and casual, but yet still very attentive. We were all quite sad to leave. I would definitely stay at Sau Bay again!
