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, or snorkelling around bombies and over bright coral walls.

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

  • 5 star ratingTropical Cyclone Sarai delivered a different Navini experience. We missed Henry meeting us at the airport, hope he is enjoying retirement, we wish him well. Finally we are being welcomed ‘home’ on the beach by Simone the owner, and friends from previous visits. It was supposed to be an extended family Christmas holiday but an expired passport by one resulted in just the two of us. They did make it to Fiji later but not to Navini. The resort with renovations completed looks beautiful. Christmas started with the staff singing carols outside the bures, a moving experience. A staff Church Service beautiful singing. Christmas Dinner was TC Sarai was on the way the seas were huge. Most guests opted to stay on the island. Winds increased , it was time to ‘batten down’. All boats taken to mainland marinas. Bure windows were boarded up, we were given meals and by early evening we were waiting ....we ate our dinner, drank some wine listening to the crashing surf and wind. I... read more

  • 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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

  • 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 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 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 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 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 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.
