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.

A few words form recent visitors

  • 5 star ratingAmazing- Paradise Island and as brilliant as it sounds! We visited Navini in December 2018, having gone through a few of the reviews we had very high expectations and Navini did not disappoint. The Island itself is beautiful and kept to such a high standard, the food is outstanding and the staff really make your time here so memorable.
    The day trips that are offered are the perfect way to explore the surroundings but staying on the island is equally as enjoyable.
    We enjoyed dining with the other guests which at first we thought would be out of our comfort zone but was a really great part of the trip.
    The majority of guests on the Island had visited many times before and we can understand why.
    Navini is the most magical and beautiful place we have ever visited and will have a special place in our hearts always.
    We can't wait to return.

  • 5 star ratingFabulous stay at Navini! Beautiful, peaceful, paradise, Navini was even better than we expected! We stayed in a premier deluxe Bure literally on the beach which was fabulous. Snorkeling around the Island was excellent and the daily boat trips to other reefs were also great. We had opted for the two meals a day which were always of a very high standard. Above anything else I must make mention of the staff who in my opinion will not be bettered in any 5 star hotel, customer service was incredible, every staff member knows your name and uses it for the duration of your stay. They were all genuinely kind and happy to help in anyway they could to make our stay even better. I cannot fault anything about Navini it really is perfect in every way. Thankyou to all your staff for making our trip so enjoyable. We will be back!

  • 5 star ratingVinaka Vaka Levu Navini Island Resort! Navini is small, quiet and incredibly special. No TV, phone, AC or wifi is necessary when you have the ever changing shades of blue of the ocean, the sky, and the coral reef alive with sea life. The staff are attentive and genuine, exemplifying legendary Fijian hospitality. This is low key recharging at it’s very best. A week is not enough time here and leaving was harder than I’d ever imagined it could be!

  • 5 star ratingWonderful taste of Fiji You can't go wrong choosing Navini for your Fiji vacation. This was our first time visiting Fiji and I liked the idea that after 24 hours of traveling someone would meet us at the airport and take us to our destination as soon as we arrived. Staying at Navini is so enjoyable. I never felt so safe and relaxed. The staff is amazing. This was our favorite place to stay in Fiji.

  • 5 star ratingWonderful holiday experience Our second visit to this island, we returned because it is a beautiful place with very helpful and kind staff always willing to do extra for us. The bures are all beachfront and comfortable, the surrounding reef is a sanctuary and full of fish and coral, every day there was a free boat trip to other reefs to snorkel. The food was delicious and more than ample. The whole experience was restful and relaxing and we will return again.

  • 5 star ratingSimply heaven. So beautiful, so luxurious yet so simple, such lovely people (the wonderful staff and the 4 other lovely guests with whom we are still friends across the world). Our priority was snorkelling, which is top notch, not only a gorgeous reef outside your bure with a drop-off to see reef sharks and eagle rays and turtles, but personally arranged, included boat trips each day to other lovely reefs. But on top of this were the gorgeous modern, luxury bures each with its own little beach and incredible views, the smallness of the island yet the privacy of it, the comfort level on all counts... the food is amazing, and they went to great trouble to accommodate our dietary needs. The fresh hot bread rolls... Helen's Lumberjack cake... breakfast pancakes... omg. It's magical there as everything arrives by boat and you have to be carefully poled over the reef for the last bit. How they do such fab catering with those constraints I can't imagine. The ethos of the place... read more

  • 5 star ratingParadise with an Ocean View - Bula! Did you ever dream of your own private tropical island when you were a child? This is the reality. We have enjoyed 8 nights on Navini Island with the most wonderful staff, exquisite natural surroundings, comfortable modern bures, amazing snorkeling every day, delicious freshly cooked food every meal, singing, dancing, games, smiles, laughter, new friendships, private beach walks, (watching the tiny baby reef sharks at the shoreline) quiet reading time, total peace and relaxation. I could go on and on. There was nothing more that we wanted from our beautiful holiday. Vinaka vakalevu everyone on Navini. 🙂 We will return.

  • 5 star ratingAbsolutely amazing We had one of our best holiday on Navini with the whole family. We had absolute bliss. We loved the morning trips to different places, snorkelling was so beautiful. The staff looked after us and were fantastic with kids. They have tried to fulfil any request we had. And food was soooooo good. It was very sad to leave this paradise, but we will definitely try to come back again.

  • 5 star ratingSpot-on from beginning to end We completely enjoyed our visit to Navini Island. The location is awesome, the staff is great.
    Staff took time to learn each of our names and ensure that we were taken care of. The facilities are casual but immaculate.
    The snorkeling trip to nearby reefs were amazing.

  • 5 star ratingWonderful Family Time in Paradise Our Family group of 12, 70 years old down to 4 years old, have just returned home from a wonderful week on Navini Island. All of us were very sorry to leave, especially the children. Their new Fijian friends who took care of them and played with them after children's dinner hour were loved by the children and will be missed.
    All of us had a fantastic time on the snorkeling trips with life jackets and swim noodles available for weaker swimmers. The reef around the island was also great, the coral is recovering from cyclone damage and there are lots of fish, shells, little sharks and turtles to see and not too many sea lice.
    Some of the family have food allergies and intolerances which were very well catered for, nothing was too much trouble. All the meals were great, a little big for some of us. The tropical fruit platters were yummy. The most delicious birthday cake was made for us as 3 of the males had...

  • 5 star ratingHome away from Home - Truely Spectacular My husband and I enjoyed a Beautiful stay at the resort - truly spectacular. We only stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and it superseeds eveyrthing. The staffs get to learn your name and treat you like their own. We were greeted by Losalini who was there for us from begining to end. Thomas the islands Aquaman - his your snorkelling guide, super caring making sure that you are ok throughout the excursion. The dining staff Vini, Joka and others are on hand and meals are more then what you expect and super yummy. Volleyball in the afternoons with the staff is lots of fun, you don't have to be a pro to play volleyball. Last but not least you end the night with the traditional Kava drink with a game of Vividi. Truly spectacular staff who are amazing and super caring, with the beach right outside your bures and you have your own path to the beach from your own private bures what more can you... read more

  • 5 star ratingNirvana (a desert island paradise) We first started holidaying in Fiji in the eighties, and having stayed at many different resorts over the years, having finally landed with Navini as our nirvana. For more information, please see my other Fiji reviews and photos.
    This was our 5th visit to Navini – so in Navini terms we are only relative newcomers!
    Once again the island, staff and snorkelling delivered 100% to our expectations, gleaned originally from reading Trip Advisor reviews, then talking to long term returnees during past visits, and our own experiences.
    That said, this year, for the first time, we realised Navini may not suit everyone.
    In past reviews I have always focussed on what Navini is, so I thought this year I should focus on what it isn’t, and who it may not suit.
    In our view, Navini is not for those who:
    • prefer to listen to their own loud music on their portable speakers during the communal gathering for pre-dinner drinks, rather than enjoy the tranquil desert island atmosphere
    • enjoy their own boisterous gathering in...

  • 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 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.

  • 5 star ratingNavini is all you hope for and more!! Bula! Let me begin by stating that nothing I write will do this place justice. You’ll have to take my word for it and visit for yourself. I had the good luck of finding this slice of paradise by scrolling through Google maps just looking for a nice place to stay in Fiji. The more I read the more I knew (hoped, really) that this would be the vacation we needed. Little did we know that the sum of the experience at Navini is so much greater than its parts, and would far surpass our expectations. The friendly greetings, the delicious meals, and the fact that you can do as much or as little with your days as you wish made it one of the best, relaxing, island vacations that we have experienced. We stayed in a premier bure and it was more than enough for our family of three. The reef just off our beach was as beautiful as advertised and we couldn’t have been happier with the... read more

  • 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 ratingIncredibly special island and people My husband and I booked a portion of our honeymoon at Navini on the reccomendation of my colleague - and what a brilliant decision. The Bures are gorgeous with stunning views. The island itself is something else, really cute and pretty. You don’t go hungry there, the meal package is great and fantastic for vegans (me) and meat eaters alike. Snorkelling trips are fab and the water is crystal clear with diverse marine life just from popping your head underwater offshore. Mealtimes are generally held at communal tables (the other guests were really sweet) with the option of having a beachfront private dinner should you wish. The most generous resort when it comes to offering kava! Finally, and most importantly, Navini staff are just so kind - going out of their way to make vegan ice cream for me (thanks Vaulina and Ana!). Every staff member feels like family after just 4 days - plus the cocktails are fab too. I heard somewhere that the return rate is exceptionally... read more

  • 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 ratingBest Vacation Ever Wow, it is hard to know where to start! Our family, traveling together on this 10-day vacation, all agreed it was the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation we have ever experienced.

    We were struck most by the positive spirit and hospitality of the staff, followed by the beauty and compactness of the island. By day two, the entire staff called you by your first name. They were personable and caring and could almost read your mind as to wants and desires. The accommodation, we stayed in, the family Villa, was modern, clean, and in a top state of repair. We had daily service that included a complete cleaning and new sheets and towels. Our family of five adults and one grandchild fit comfortably into this Bure. Each Bure has an outdoor hammock and a covered seating area on or adjacent to the beach. We were on the north side of the island and were treated to the most beautiful sunsets.
    The dining area was a central hub of...

  • 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
