We woke up in our little private room at Bamboo backpackers and headed to the reception to book the boat and hostel on Mana Island... The boat cost us F$75 (about £25) and a night in a private room in the hostel was F$55 with 3 meals included... Not too bad for staying on an island in the middle of the South Pacific! Only bad thing is there is …

We also took part in the Easter Sunday church service at the islands local Methodist church. Neither of us are Methodist but the format is more in line with Anglican approach, a few hymns, a sermon, the plate whip around and "peace be with you". The minister was very quietly spoke and the sermon was in Fijian but we did know "what a friend we have in Jesus". Towards the end I got a bit of ...

... We talk to local taxi driver and
general man that knows, Vincent, and he recommends Mana Island as we
are only here for ten days. He says that if we don't like it we can
always move to another island. So we pack up our stuff and sort out
our cash situation. With no ATM's on Mana and a 10% surcharge for
every card transaction, cash is vital for survival on the island!

The following day it was time to do some island hopping! We were picked up at 7am and taken to the port where our high speed catamaran awaited. Over the next 6 nights we would take in 3 islands. First stop was Manta Ray Island. After 3 hours on the catamaran we were picked up by a small wooden boat ...

Very friendly island... service was good, food good, activities varied, great snorkling and diving. All in all a very enjoyable place to get away from it all. Prices for water and liquor is high so hit the store in Nadi before you board the boat.
I would recommend this as a place for couples and for families.

Historical Traveler Reviews Mana Island Resort
We have stayed on Mana three times (the first being 24 years ago for our honeymoon) and love it. We even visit when we are staying on the mainland.
Recently spent five nights at Mana Island and got married at the Seaside Chapel.
Be very carefull when you eat anything at mana island i ended up with very bad food poisoning and spent three days in bed and the island refused to offer any compansation not even 2 or 3 extra nights. My friend i travelled with also had problems with the food we ended up eating pks of chips from the shop for the last two days. Never again. I went to castaway island after and ate myself silly it was great.
Just returned from what was one of the best family holidays we have ever had. Beautiful beaches, good facilities, wonderful staff ; activities laid out for adults and children alike! Our 5yr old son thoroughly enjoyed the Kids Club especially the opportunity to participate in more traditional Fijian activities - a nice change from the 'high-tech' world. Staff were wonderful and ensured that all the children were well entertained.
This island is breathtaking. We stayed in a garden view room, the cheapest available in the brochure and it turned out to have a lovely garden and ocean view. The beaches were lovely and the free snorkeling was amazing, you could lose yourself in their world for hours on end. There were prickly weeds towards the back of the beach but this didn't impact on the white sand and crystal water beauty. The island is arranged so that most of the time you feel totaly alone on the unspoilt stretch of sand. The resort is run by the islanders who live in the staff village over the hill and its this that makes the resort truely special. They are so friendly and the evening polynesian entertainment is fantastic, not comercialised and gimmicky. the food was lovey. OUr room had 2 double beds and was very clean. little touches like free insect repellent (which wasnt needed) and fresh flowers daily were lovely. yes, if you looked closely you could find things in need of a coat of paint etc but on a magical island such as this with fantastic staff you shouldnt have the need to care. I cannot recommend this resort enough.
I spent 5 nights in one of the cheaper "garden view" bures, which our travel agent had recommended we avoid. Contrary to their advice, we found the bure to be brilliant. It was large, clean, well maintained and well situated to both of the main beaches and restaurants.
The beaches were great, with good snorkelling in both low and high tides The pools looked nice, but were surprisingly cold, so we only swam in the ocean. We found the food to be very nice, and reasonably priced.
We stayed on Mana Island for the final part of our honeymoon for 3 nights. We had previously loved every second of our trip, staying on the Coral Coast and also a 4 night cruise.
Mana Island Resort is in a great setting - a large island to the west of Vitu Levu surrounded by blue water and coral reefs. It provides a fantastic opportunity for snorkelling both on its south and north beaches.
We visited Mana Island in September of 2004, and it was exactly what we wanted for our honeymoon. The weather was perfect, the water was warm, and the staff was very friendly. It was such a relaxing setting that it was hard to leave. I would recommend staying in one of the Honeymoon Bures.
