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 ratingPure enjoyment! My husband and I loved our 3 nights at Navini (wished we had booked for longer)! The staff were very friendly, the food was delicious and the premier bure on the beach was everything we could have asked for. Two of the excursions included amazing snorkelling (the best we have ever seen having visited both Samoa and Vanuatu in the last couple of years). One excursion to Muscat Cove and Plantation Island was Ok (the families with children enjoyed swimming in the pools). I think we were taken there to compare resorts and reinforce the fact we had chosen one of the best islands in Fiji to vacation on - couldn't wait to get back for lunch and to do more great snorkelling right outside of our bure. Would definitely recommend to stay at least a week if possible. We will definitely be back sooner rather than later (I hope).

  • 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 ratingThe best ever Arrived at the island at night and was already amazed by the island and the staff, the food on the first night was wonderful aswell as every other night after that. I would like to give a shout out to jozava and viniana who were the highlight of the trip keeping us happy and always smiling all day and all night, at night these two amazing people would play with my family and entertain everyone around them. The activities this island has to offer are absolutely awesome from island tours to snorkeling tours, they cater for any age no matter what, truly the best holiday ever. Thanks Nivini

  • 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 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 ratingFantastic relaxing week A stay at Navini Island Resort is total relaxation intertwined with wonderful snorkeling adventures. You can do as little or as much as you wish. It is a very small island with no day-trippers and during our stay there were more staff than guests.
    The meals were excellent and we so enjoyed meeting all of the other guests at communal dining tables.
    Also the opportunity to meet the staff and share kava and games after dinner was very enjoyable.
    We look forward to a return visit.

  • 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 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 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 ratingPerfection! We just spent 5 perfect nights on Navini. Even though we were moving on to another resort (Likuliku on Malolo), we didn't want to leave! We split up our vacation up between the two resorts, thinking we might feel confined on a 6 acre island after 5 days but my wife and kids and I all would have been happy to stay another week (at least!) on Navini. Snorkeling on the north side of the island was as good as any of the other reefs we went to with plenty of corals, shells (just don't touch any live cones!), brightly colored fish, sharks (friendly), and turtles.
    Bures were simple but clean and comfortable and felt very private. Very much enjoyed having a large, covered day bed outside on the sand for reading, napping, or just watching the Black-Tipped Reef sharks feeding on the small bait fish swimming a few feet off the shore. Chaise lounge chairs were also available even closer to the water...

  • 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 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 ratingMagical Navini We just returned again from a long stay at magical Navini Island
    Our family has been holidaying there every year for the last 26 years, up to a month at a time, and it’s hard to leave
    There are no phones, there is wifi if you want it but otherwise you leave the world behind and connect with nature at its best.
    Navini reef teams with incredible fish life.I was amazed to witness this visit 2 large eagle rays casually gliding through the water so close to me with a shark swimming a few metres underneath, sites like this are common. I have dived and snorkelled on Fiji reefs for the last 26 years and Navini Island is by far the best Marine Santuary, it never disappoints.Scuba diving at the Island last week I was also thrilled to see vibrant coral starting to regenerate all over the reef again after being affected from the cyclone a few years ago,beautiful bright colours of blue pink and green.

  • 5 star ratingWhat more can I say..Still beautiful one day perfect the next. Travelled with family for Christmas staying in the spacious family villa. Worked perfectly for 7 of us.
    Nice to see the renovations to the bar/dining completed, it looks amazing.
    Christmas day started with the pre dawn carol singing by staff outside the bures, Church Service after breakfast then a relaxing day until Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings.
    Catching up with many other Christmas returnees is always nice.
    Perfect weather too.
    The family left and we moved to our favourite south side bure for the rest of our stay .
    New Year was excellent. Starting with a lovo dinner then moving outside to the new area outside the bar overlooking the beach for the evenings entertainment. The staff excelled. Commencing with a traditional kava ceremony followed by traditional singing and dancing, timed perfectly to end with the countdown to midnight, when fireworks stareted with a bang. All around on the surrounding islands and mainland the sky lit up. Wow!

  • 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 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 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 ratingPerfect for a family! Our family of 5 (three sons ages 4, 7 and 10) absolutely loved our time on Navini. The island is gorgeous and peaceful and we had our own private beach just steps from our burre. The snorkeling was the best we've experienced in Fiji. Each day Dumu took us to different spots and we saw so many amazing creatures. The food was quite delicious and they even change the kids meals everyday so the kids don't get tired of eating the same food. The fruit lollipops for dessert were a favorite of my boys! Each night, they have a kids activity during the adult communal dinner and it was one of our boys' favorite parts of the day. They took the boys to gather hermit crabs and played hide-and-seek and learned how to play Vidi Vidi and all the while, my husband and I were able to enjoy leisurely dinner. Our favorite part by far though was the staff. Jooka and... read more
