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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 ratingA Peaceful Escape When searching for a place to unwind and disconnect from the hustle of city life, look no further than Navini. From the moment you arrive, the entire staff knows your name and is there to welcome you with kindness. They picked me up from the airport and drove me to the boat house where I was then put on a short boat ride to Navini. The fact that there is no tv or radio music playing anywhere on the island makes you listen to the sounds of the ocean and nature. There are no day trippers so there is a sense of calm and peace constantly. The food is absolutely delicious and they can accommodate any dietary requests. As I was a solo traveler I was sat with other guests at meals where we all became friends. It was such a warm environment. Surrounding the island is a reef where I snorkeled every day, sometimes guided by Thomas. They provide day trips for more snorkeling and visiting nearby islands.... read more

  • 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 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 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 ratingRebecca Foster My husband and I enjoyed our second stay on Navini island, this time as a couple. Two years ago we came with our children.
    We will be returning!!
    Many people we met on the island were returning a second/ third or multiple times!
    The sense of community, warmth, friendships easily created with staff and other residents is a big part of why we love Navini, we feel that it is a unique and special atmosphere.
    There is opportunity for socialising with other guests and private space to relax, unwind and just be.
    The boat trips exploring other reefs to snorkel, or snorkelling around the island are magical. The water is warm, the sunrises/sunsets spectacular and the accomodation is first class.
    Whether enjoying down time as a couple or having fun with family, the experience is fantastic.
    There are fun activities for all and the food is delicious and the service is always professional, friendly and fun.
    Navini is a beautiful haven and we can’t wait to go back!!

  • 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 ratingParadise - the best place you will ever go! If you've ever wondered what heaven might be like, then just go to Navini! We stayed here for 6 nights and it was the most wonderful place I've ever been, from the beautiful bure apartments you stay in, to the most stunning surroundings and sea always just a mere few metres away, to the incredible food which was made taking every dietary requirement into account (me and my mum are both veggie and dairy free and they went to such efforts, resulting in a week of some of the best food and cakes I've eaten!).
    The staff here make the place even more special - so friendly, attentive, warm hearted.. nothing is too small (special shout out to Choka for being generally wonderful). After dinner they gather to play Fijian board games and drink kava with the guests (if you want to!) and it just gives you that insight into the culture as well which I really loved. The water around the island is a sanctuary, so the sea...

  • 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 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 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 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 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 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.
