Things to Do

Do as much or as little as you like on Navini Island

On Navini Island, your time is your own.
A major decision is whether to snorkel around Navini’s reef, join the complimentary morning outing which may be to the local village, dropline fishing over one of the neighbouring reefs, snorkelling around bombies and over bright coral walls, or visiting other island resorts.

From the Island, you can explore the coral reef sanctuary, take out the hobie-cat sailboat, borrow snorkelling gear to watch the colourful fish, try the sailboard, spyboard, kayaks, or the seacycles. All complimentary.

  • 5 star ratingBack for a dose of Paradise This was our fifth time at Navini, and once again Paradise found! This is not only due to the beautiful nature both above and below the water, but in large part due to the friendly staff at Navini, who go out of their way to make you feel at home. If you need a break from the hectic non-stop daily routine, this is the place to be!
    After a four year break, it was wonderful to catch up with staff and other return visitors who are now friends. Accommodation has had a lovely face lift with more modern facilities and the biggest change was to the dining area and the menu. We enjoyed these changes, though would still be happy with the ‘old’.
    A big Vinaka vakalevu to all the Staff at Navini! A truly memorable Christmas and stay for us.

  • 5 star ratingWe’ll be back It’s not hard to see why Navini has so many repeat visitors, it really is something special.
    Firstly it’s only an hour from the airport, with 24/7 access so you don’t have to spend a night in transit (unlike more remote islands). Secondly there is plenty of space and privacy- each Bure has its own small garden with sun loungers, day bed or hammock. Thirdly a complimentary activity each morning helps strike the balance between leisure and action.
    Add excellent food, friendly Fijian staff and a laid back vibe, and its makes for a great holiday.
    We had a five day stay in a Deluxe Premier Bure, our friends stayed in a two room Bure, across the island from each other. Both Bures were reasonably spacious, modern and spotless. We shared sundowners each night on the sunset side of the island out of the wind, before heading off to dinner.
    The shared dining table worked well, with most guests (mainly Australians, with a Spanish and NZ couple) ranging...

  • 5 star ratingFriendly, relaxing, beautiful My partner and I spent five nights on Navini Island in September and it was wonderful. Not only is the island gorgeous, and the water surrounding it pristine, but the people who work there are super friendly and welcoming - ready to make your trip an absolute joy. Add to that the value of the free excursions (twice snorkeling, once to the native village) and the very comfortable accommodations, and you have paradise. Saw reef sharks and a turtle snorkeling right off the island too... And though it often got windy on our side of the island, we just walked to the other side and it was perfect! Thank you to Joka, Loatta, Inia, Kata, Eviesaki, Thomas, and the whole crew at Navini Island for a wonderful stay.

  • 5 star ratingTruly Paradise!! Before deciding on a holiday on Navini, I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews. I was looking for a small one-resort island with beautiful beaches and a fantastic house reef for snorkeling. Oh, and the meals had to be wonderful too! Well, I got it all and more...the food was simply delicious, dessert was served with lunch and dinner! Each morning there is an activity such as a snorkel trip to visit different reefs, line fishing or a visit to a nearby "working" island where you can visit a school and later have an opportunity to purchase little trinkets. After lunch, there is time for the beach, a snorkel around the house reef or a drink with new found friends. Simone and all the wonderful people who run the show will cater to all your needs from the moment you step foot on their island. Everyone knows your name whether they work in the office, the restaurant, run the boats or pick you up... read more

  • 5 star ratingPerfect!!! The most perfect holiday we’ve ever had! Island is beautiful, resort is well planned and the staff..staff members are the heart of Navini! They were amazing and everyone felt like friends to us. There were couple who have been coming back for 25 years! That should tell you all something. We have travelled a lot and never have I ever been this upset when I have to leave some place! When we left from Navini I almost cried 😀 Definitely coming back.
    Best regards from Elisa and Niko 😍

  • 5 star ratingAnother excellent Navini experience We just made our third trip to Navini and it just keeps on delivering. Somehow, they to be able to improve on perfection.
    I didn’t think it was possible but the food has only gotten better. Ana and the kitchen staff have from creating delicious meals to creating super-dooper delicious meals! Kids activities away from the dining area during the adults’ dinner is an added bonus.
    One of the best things about Navini is that you get treated like a family member rather than a stranger. For return visitors, being greeted with a hug rather than an introduction is just one of many reasons that we will keep coming back.
    Whether it’s new staff or ‘old hands’, everybody goes out of their way to make your holiday unforgettable.
    Hot tip: one of my favourite activities happens after dinner when the staff come back to the dining area to drink kava and play vindi vindi. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get to know the people, learn about Fijian culture and day-to-day life, enjoy...

  • 5 star ratingTake me back.... We had been thinking about coming to Navini for several years after reading about it on trip advisor and finally made our much awaited trip in October this year. We stayed for 10 nights and loved every minute.
    We have always been impressed by the friendliness of the people in Fiji but from the moment we meet Henry at the airport we were greeted by name by all the staff which was a much appreciated first. The size of the resort and number of people suited us perfectly. Just big enough to enjoy a walk around easily and have a chance to meet all the other guests during meals. The communal dining was one of the highlights and we found everyone mixed easily and it worked really well.The meals were of very good quality and varied. I think we only just came round to repeating the menu after 10 days and there was still a choice for every meal. The kitchen and wait staff were very efficient and...

  • 5 star ratingStill wonderful We returned to Navini after a 10 yr absence - we won’t be waiting that long for our next visit.
    The biggest improvement in 10 yrs has been the revamped bar/dining area and the food itself. We took the 3-meal/day package and the wait and kitchen staff had no problem in adjusting the menu to our requests (mostly more veg in place of carb elements). The food was really delicious, lots of fresh fish and salads and loads of choices at every meal.
    We had a 2-room bure which worked well for the 3 of us. Located on the NW side we got the winter sunset perfectly. Some cheap reef shoes came in useful on the rocks and with all the coral.
    The other guests were delightful - good company at meals, fun on the afternoon volleyball court and over an evening game of vindi vindi. There were a few families with kids of various ages - if that’s not your thing then research the dates of Aus/NZ school holidays to avoid...

  • 5 star ratingA piece of paradise! Absolutely a piece of heaven on earth! I would give it 10 stars if possible‼️ Our family consisted of 8 of us, the youngest being 8 and the oldest being 90 and everyone of us were made welcome from the minute we were picked up at our overnight hotel to when we were delivered back to the airport in Nadi! Comfort of the guests is obviously a top priority for the owner and her staff. We were greeted by the staff learning each of our first names and introducing themselves to us and with a refreshing glass of fruit juice. Their attention to each of us never waivered. We got to know most of them by name and had the opportunity to visit with them and learn about Fiji, their traditions and lives. After meeting Simone, the owner, the first night, it was obvious that this wonderful place is special and that she pours her heart and soul into it. ... read more

  • 5 star ratingStill a Magical place after 25 years We stayed at Navini for our Honeymoon 25 years ago and returned with our three kids in December 2018. The relaxing feel and very friendly staff was as good as it was 25 years ago. The island is truly a paradise with its great beaches, bures, activities and most importantly friendly caring staff. The five night there really gave our family a chance to reconnect and relax after a busy year. It will not be 25 years before we are back.

  • 5 star ratingFabulous! During my first meal at Navini, it became clear that almost every guest on the island has either been visiting Navini for many years - or is planning to do so. That seemed a bit mysterious to me initially, but I quickly understood why! Amazing hospitality, great guests

  • 5 star ratingI'd give 6 stars if I could This is the perfect resort for casual relaxation.From the moment we arrived we felt part of the Navini family. The hardest decision of my day was whether to relax on the extremely comfortable double daybed, hammock or sunloungers. Replies to emails before arrival were prompt. Arrival times are flexible.Henry, based on Vitu Levu, can pick up anytime to transport you on the half hour journey by road to the Vuda Marina to rendezvous with the boat.There is no jetty so it was shoes off to paddle ashore.There was quite a swell when we arrived and we had to transfer into a smaller boat which would have been quite a challenge for the less nimble.The bures are all beachfront and privately screened by greenery.Not only was there a welcome fruit cocktail there was a welcome fruit basket in the fridge and a complimentary alcoholic beverage was brought to the bure to help us settle in . The bed was comfortable and the ocean was visible .There is no air conditioning... read more

  • 5 star ratingPerfect! Navini is a small, intimate island very appropriate for couples, although it may be excellent for older children, too. It's tranquil, and the bungalows open on your private beach. The cuisine is an exquisite European, Asian, Fijian fusion. We had 21 meals while on the island, and we didn't have the same dish twice. The outdoor activities include snorkelling, swimming, kayaking and sailing. The most important event is the morning trip (included in your package) that will be to a hidden snorkelling spot or a sand cay or a traditional village. Speaking of classic, the most crucial time of the day is after dinner when the staff entertain you with live music, local drinks (kava) and a local board game called Vindi Vindi (inspired by Carrom).
    All in all, you get to experience the real Fiji like you wouldn't be able to do in any other resort. We felt like members of their family rather than guests. We cried when we left, and that should tell you a lot!

  • 5 star ratingNavini Island - Pacific Paradise. A week spent with our extended family - our children, their partners and our seven grandchildren - a party of 17. Despite the range of ages we were all catered for and made very welcome. Bures (little self contained units) were clean and comfortable and just a few metres walk to the clean, clear and warm waters of the Pacific Ocean.
    Meal time was a great family time - the food was simple, beautifully prepared and presented. Staff were friendly and helpful always with a 'Bula!' welcome and always with a smile, nothing was too much trouble.
    Activities were available for young and old with swimming and snorkelling (looking at coral & fish) probably the most popular with our party. More 'formal' activites were organised each day such as a boat trip to a sand cay a few kilometres away and a morning fishing trip - a great father & son time.
    Navini Island resort is unlike many 'resorts' - it is NOT an overcapitalised 'ferroconcrete jungle' ...

  • 5 star ratingMeravigliosa esperienza! L'isola è piccola e con pochi bungalow, dall'atmosfera tranquilla e rilassata, che ti permette di staccare completamente la spina!
    L'accoglienza è calorosa e familiare e cerca di coinvolgerti nella grande famiglia Navini!
    Cucina eccellente e staff pronto a soddisfare ogni tua richiesta!
    Una serata a settimana è dedicata alla cucina locale e alle tradizioni: bella esperienza!
    La barriera corallina da un lato dell'isola è particolarmente bella ma noi siamo stati un po' sfortunati perché per alcuni giorni è stato ventoso.

  • 5 star ratingTeeny, tiny paradise I read about Navini when researching great places to snorkel in Fiji, and it did not disappoint! There is a reef surrounding the island which you can access from the beach and see many fish and the ocassional reef shark and turtle. There were tiny black tip reef shark pups in the shallows almost constantly (to my unwavering delight!) The views were consistently stunning.
    Almost every day we were taken on a snorkeling trip to another reef. Each trip was varied, but always awesome: The colours and shapes of the coral, the variety and density of the fish, the visibility! Consistently the best snorkelling I have pexperienced. I was so glad to see our guides never fed the fish (which some were clearly used to from other operators).
    “Sea lice” were very prevalent while we were there (I didn’t research the best time of year to visit, so this may vary)! If you react badly to these, make sure you cover up. The upside: where there were sea lice, there...

  • 5 star ratingParadise Found If you need (like we did) a complete break from the hectic humdrum of modern life, then Navini is for you. If you want a bland, 5 star, expensive low quality food, no beach resort that could in fact be anywhere then it probably isn't. The quintessential Fiji experience - amazing staff, comfortable bures, beautiful island and incredible food. We will definitely be back 🙂 Vinaka!

  • 5 star ratingHeavenly! If you are looking for a small, extremely friendly, low-key, very relaxing, and totally beautiful island to hide away on, Navini is it! A hidden gem amidst bigger, glitzier resorts, both its staff and clientele are truly special. The bures are very comfortable (great beds) and the food very good. But perhaps the best are all of the activities with staff, from trips to great snorkeling spots, beach volleyball, every possible water sport, to evening music and dancing. No pressure to participate but plenty of activities if you want. We were not sure what to expect, but what we found was even better than we might have imagined.
