The island's 174 acres are covered in rich tropical rainforest, surrounded by white sand beaches, vibrant coral reefs and azure waters. Even though getting to Castaway from Fiji's mainland is just a short trip by either seaplane, helicopter or boat, when you're on the shores of our tropical island escape you feel a million miles away.

Review:   Recommended for: Families with children

Pros: Terrific staff; great Kids Club with fun things for the children to do when the adults want to go diving, etc. Great proximity to plenty of super dive sites on the Malolo Barrier Reef. Plenty of tasty choices in the restaurant--there's "kid food" available, but adults can enjoy something more interesting and adventurous. Totally reasonable prices in the bar, too. Bures are comfortable and nicely located on the beach, far enough apart for quiet and privacy.

Cons: While it would be fine as a honeymoon resort as well, there will be kids around at times.

Review:   Beautiful setting, attentive caring staff and unforgettable renewals of vows! We spent our honeymoon here 10 years ago and made sure to come back 10 years later because the water, the culture of the resort, the quality of guests and unique ambiance was worth both trips. Castaway experience spoils you for other places because of their attention to detail, like having fresh flowers in your room, the staff knowing you by your first name, the delicious healthy food, the beautiful waters and activities—a true getaway experience for both couples or families. We were treated to a simple, romantic and memorable ceremony of renewal of vows on the beach. We travelled all the way from Canada and it was worth the trip! Thank you Castaway!

Review:   Myself and Husband left Castaway last Tuesday, We have no children and was just the two of us. The entire experience was amazing from start to finish, we had previously visited on a couple of day trips and came back this time to stay 4 nights. The staff were amazing Kelera at receptionship, water sports guys, Restaurant staff one being Oni. The food was exceptional, plenty of variety. Beach front Bure was very impressive inside also astonishing views. Modiriki island tour a must. The whole experience is one not to be forgotten and we were very sad to leave. Bula Vinaka our new island family!!!

Review:   We have just come home from a six night vacation on Castaway Island and all I can say is WOW. You are welcomed with open arms and from there in. We had an Island Bure which was very comfortable and just beautifully set up. We went with our teenage daughters whom did not get bored and not phased by no tv, limited internet, they were worn out by their daily activities of either snorkelling, swimming, walking the tracks, kayaking, paddle boarding. The husband took the opportunity to have a go at new things, catamaran, participating in tradition ceremonies, kava, etc. my husband and I accepted the offer of the complimentary renewing wedding vowels ceremony in front of our girls. This was such a beautiful unforgettable experience and one that just opened our hearts up to Fiji and the Castaway Island Family. There was only a few very minor hiccups but nothing that wasn't addressed in a very timely fashion or was in anyway going to ruin our vacation. My girls would thoroughly recommend going on there night snorkelling trips, a whole different experience to the day time.
