True to its name, the Remote Resort is located on an isolated peninsula on the island of Vanua Levu, close to Rainbow Reef, one of Fiji’s best dive sites. The intimate retreat is home to just four oceanfront villas and is set on a 64-acre plot studded with pineapple and papaya trees. With a “high design, low impact” philosophy, the spacious villas are decked out with timber that has been felled and milled on-site and furniture made from local vesi trees. The minimal white-on-wood interiors ensure that the attention is placed firmly on the ocean and jungle views, which can be seen from huge windows shaded by wooden louvers. All villas have private plunge pools, spacious decks with daybeds, Bose docking stations and alfresco bathrooms with open-air showers. Guests can decide where to dine, from a secluded supper on the beach to a laid-back in-villa feast. Tuck into South Pacific flavors cooked on a wood-fired stove or a lovo, a traditional barbecue with an underground grill.
In the Area
The Rainbow Reef, discovered by Jacques Cousteau, is just 10 minutes from the resort and is home to more than 20 stunning dive sites. Resort activities such as volleyball, bocce, kayaking and snorkeling are also included in the rate. Vanua Levu is Fiji’s second-largest island and is home to the colorful Naag Mandir Temple and Wasali Nature Reserve, an untouched rainforest cut with hiking trails.
How to Get There
We stayed for a week and felt home away from home from the first minute. We loved the room, we loved the food and drinks, we loved the massages and mostly we loved the staff lead by Kantoni who made our stay extraordinary. I cannot highly enough underline the quality and taste of the food and having chosen the ultimate gourmet and ultimate bar package was worth any penny. The premisses are very well kept and the house reef is stunning, really nice for snorkeling right from the jetty. We joint a few activities including stunning dives in the nearby rainbow reef, which is the most beautiful and healthiest reef I have seen so far, we joint Dan for a fishing trip and just enjoyed ourselves in between. It was the perfect holidays and we cannot recommend the remote resort enough. Thank you for making our stay so special.
The 4 nights we stayed at The Remote Resort is the best vacation we have ever had. This place is truly amazing and deserves 5 or more stars!! Their service is top notch and begins even before our travel (the e-mails we sent were all answered 'supersonic' fast). We stayed at the 2-Bedroom Royal Retreat Villa as family of 5. The rooms are super clean and spacious with gorgeous ocean view. The foods are delicious and both my kids agree the resort cooks the best vegetables they ever tasted. I especially love our dinners that were set up at different part of the resort each night.
All the staffs at Remote are amazingly friendly. Katoni, the assistant manager, is super attentive and he caters all our needs. My mom is not a strong swimmer but she was able to snorkel with us several times because Villisi, the resort manager, guided and snorkeled with her. We went to all the daily excursions scheduled during our visit and love them all. The only disappointment was we didn’t get to snorkel with the Manta Ray as it is still very early of the season. However, it only gives us the excuse to try coming back again! ;)
Thank you Remote Resort for making our stay so special! It is a trip that we will never forget!
I can't imagine going anywhere else. We stayed in the Royal Retreat villa and it was immaculate ( and the pool was awesome). To say the staff was great would be an understatement. Katoni and Villisi made sure our days and meals were planned and timed perfectly. All we had to do was wake up and they took care of everything else. PK took us on the Taveuni Insider day trip and we had a blast. We included the Ultimate Spa package and would highly recommend that as well.
From the time we stepped of the boat upon arrival to the time we stepped on the boat to leave, this was the best vacation we've ever had. Can't wait to go back again SOON!
We now have a new saying between us “it’s no remote resort”. My sister and I had the most amazing stay at remote resort. The staff-kind, attentive and always smiling. The food-fresh, delicious, local, best I’ve experienced in Fiji. The room (we stayed on the two bedroom villa)-comfortable, well equipped and very private. Everything about this place is absolute perfection! The only thing we regret is not staying longer. Thank you so so much for everything!!!
My wife and I along with some friends spent 5 days there and it was nothing short of perfect. We travel quite frequently and we could not say a negative word. The service is above and beyond, the food is phenomenal. Dan along with his team have created a slice of paradise that I hope to find myself at again. Thank you to the remote resort team for an unforgettable week.
