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 truly enjoyed our 5 days at Remote ..... Such a picturesque and beautiful resort with the most genuine, helpful and somewhat eclectic team of happy Fijian staff you could possibly ever imagine (congratulations to the management on creating such a great staff culture ..... the word family could better be used to describe them than staff anyway). We did everything.... the full drinks package, a uniquely Fijian twist cocktail of the day +++ every day , a massage on our private deck everyday afternoon and all possible activities. Awesome Snorkelling , sunsets and food . The recently new manager Yohan ( I hope this spelling is correct ) is a true gentleman too
Met our son and his girl friend in Fiji since it was the halfway point between California and Africa. We were lucky to find the remote resort among the many choices but it was sort of last minute so the choices were narrowing. The website does a great job of describing the units and activities and the reviews cinched the deal. It is a bit of an adventure getting there with an 75 minute flight, car drive and a boat ride after landing at Nadi but it was well worth it. Once you step off the boat, you know you have made the right decision and it only gets better from there. The staff is fantastic, the meals and activities are great, and we were able to get in a couple of half days of ocean fishing which was adventurous and educational. The relatively new and large rooms were perfect. Spacious bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, nice views out, comfortable beds. Every morning we made coffee and walked out to the beach to sit and watch the waves. We had breakfast at the room some days and at the pavilion others. Same with the dinners. You can let the staff know what you need anytime. it rained off and on but that added to the charm and did not stop any activities although there was a bit of flooding on the roads during our day trip to Taveuni so we did not make it to the water slide but still had a fantastic waterfall hike and visited the church and international dateline.We ordered drinks and meals al a carte. It would have been too much food and beverages otherwise. We selected the snorkel trips, village trip, Taveuni day trip but not the secret beach trips although those would have been fun if we had another day or two. We did select two spa plan for everyday and traded those among the 4 of us. Those were well worth it. the Christmas reef snorkel is just 10 minutes out from the resort is is every bit as good as the Rainbow reef
It couldn't have been a more perfect 6 nights after our hectic wedding. The only decisions we had to make was which of the 6 awesome meals we wanted to have and whether or not we wanted to go kayaking that day! So so relaxing. The villas are lovely and truly feel like being outside. The view is so fantastic that we rarely closed the curtains and just lived our life based on the sun. Even if you don't do this- definitely make sure to catch a sunrise one of the days!
We had a wonderful holiday at Remote Resort. Great room with beautiful views, nice food - offering great dinner settings experiences in a variety of locations on the island, romance and time to really connect and chill together, relaxing massages on our own private decks (my favourite was the sugar scrub), The cocktails need a little work …. were not the traditional tasting cocktails I've had … although very strong, However, the best thing about Remote Resort is the genuinely friendly staff who are always there to help with anything and always have a smile for you. Thank you everyone at the Remote Resort for a truly wonderful holiday.
Great location, awesome staff, nice rooms, tasty food and beautiful nature. You need nothing more for a romantic escape with your beloved. The place feels like a special one with everything designed for you to have a perfect experience.
