10/10 Exceptional

My wife and I ventured to Sau Bay around the 20th of June, shortly after it opened. At a high level, we give the place 6 out of 5 stars! At the top of our experience was the incredible staff that greeted us and took care of us throughout our 5-day stay. We had previously spent a couple of weeks at some other resorts in the Mamanuca islands, and while those were also great, Sau Bay stood head and shoulders above them in terms of service, privacy, and overall experience. Sau Bay is a small resort with only a few cottages. It never feels crowded and during our stay the staff outnumbered the guests by about 2 to 1! By the time we left the staff felt like family. Eunice, Sara, William, Carl, Letu, John and little John banded together to give us an experience we won’t forget. Sara took care of making sure we had great dining experiences and also gave us fantastic seaside massages along with herbal therapy to help me ease my sinuses (from a head cold, which unfortunately kept me from diving). Carl and Letu took care of our boat transportation from the island of Taveuni, and also led us on our snorkeling expedition on the rainbow reef. Having snorkeled and dived many locations around the tropics since the 80’s, I can say this was right up there with some of best, unlike some of the locations where much of the coral is dead and the fish are no longer abundant. We also did some snorkeling on the house reef. My recommendation for snorkeling right near the resort is to take a kayak

The quiet location was perfect for us. The staff were super friendly and very attentive. The bay was calm and perfect for snorkelling right from our Bure. Our day of taking a boat to snorkel at rainbow reef and picnic on a sandy beach was the icing on the cake.

Feels like your dream home
Stayed here for our honeymoon for around 10 days and we can't say enough good things about this place. The view, food, staff, activities, and the dogs were lovely and we miss everyone and everything already! Where do we start...the diving is spectacular with the dive master, Carl. Hiking is a pleasant surprise with the dogs (4) who led the way and were such friendly hosts! Snorkeling with gorgeous house reefs is amazing and the kayaking along mangroves is out of this world. The housekeepers were so sweet and diligent--they make the beds with fresh flower decorations twice everyday and coming home to it puts a smile on our faces every time. The consistent supply of cookies and milk in the pantry is delightful and delicious, as with every meal. The list just goes on and on... You HAVE to come stay at Sau Bay if you are visiting Fiji! We hope to be back some day!

Go there now!!!
Sau Bay is a hidden gem. It has the best service from the kindest people. Snorkeling right off the beach is world class. Go there before it gets discovered

Paradise in Fiji
Sau Bay Resort is paradise in a secluded part of Fiji, with easy access to the best snorkeling we have ever done -- Rainbow Reef. The bure/cottages are elegantly decorated for an island retreat. The amenities are first class. The flowers are abundant in and outside of the accommodation and public spaces. Food is excellent; staff attentive; scenery is lush jungle and blue water. We rank this resort at the top of our list of preferred accommodations worldwide.

Fiji seclusion
Accessible only by boat, this Fiji oasis offers the ideal underwater long dreamed of, experience. Rainbow reef offers divers many dive spots and even snorkelers can enjoy the shallow, clear, colorful, soft coral reefs and fish. Rooms are well thought, modern and a wonderful coffee/tea bar with refrigerator to cool milk and water. Oh, the outdoor showers are fabulous! But the best part was the people . Sera took care of us. She was there to order our preferences for food, provide breakfast, lunch and dinner, teach us about coconut , make me a broom from coconut frond, accompany me while snorkeling in Sau Bay, and she was a real champ getting up with us at 4:30 am to hunt crabs. Kiti plays the guitar, he has a wonderful voice and he shares kava. Vee is a wonderful chef , she is such a talented lady, she makes you smile. The owners Carol and Nigel have great stories to tell and give their all to make their Sau Bay a great experience , a tough job without infrastructure . Kudos to all.

4/10 Fair

Leider kein Paradis!
Einsam gelegene Unterkunft in einer Bucht auf der Nachbarinsel von Taveuni. Leider sind einige Unstimmigkeiten während unseres Aufenthaltes aufgetreten, von denen wir hier kurz berichten wollen: Transfer: anders als angegeben werden einem pro Person 100 USD(!) in Rechnung gestellt für eine 25 minütige Bootsfahrt - sehr teuer. Bei unserer Ankuft wollte man sich nicht daran erinnern, dass ein „kontinentales Frühstück“ im Zimmerpreis inbegriffen war. Man bot uns verschiedene Mealplans an, die von 55USD bis ca. 80 USD pro Person und Tag kosten. Auf unsere Nachfrage, warum denn dies nicht in der Landeswährung angeboten wird, würde uns keine Begründung gegeben. Das Frühstück wurde uns nach langen Diskussionen als „light Frühstück“ angeboten. Alles andere als kontinentales Frühstück. Die Zimmer haben eine Aircondition, aber anders als in den Buchungsbedingungen angegeben kostet diese 20 FJD pro Tag! Die Ausflüge und Tauchen werden ebenfalls in USD abgerechnet. Zum Auschecken haben wir dann eine Rechnung erhalten, in der dann alles wieder in FJD ungerechnet wurde. Völlig unverständlich, warum dann vorher USD angegeben wurde. Auf Nachfrage, dass man statt mit Kreditkarte (5% Gebühren) auch mit Paypal zahlen könne, da dies ebenfalls auf der Rechnung angeboten wird und nur 2% Gebühren kostet, hat die Inhaberin plötzlich befürchtet, das der Zahlvorgang zu lange dauert. Leider ist die Preisgestaltung alles andere als transparent und das Personal z.T. nicht sehr freundlich.:(
