We have just come back from the Sonaisali, to be honest I would not recommend it. The location and resort are very nice, but for a honeymoon you should know that there is a kids club, so kids where running past our hut a fair bit. We both found that the service was far below adverge and while most activites where reasonably priced others very $$$$. And it was very noisey so durning the day naps just did not happen.

I have heard of far nicer places.

Really thought Sonasali would have gotten their act together by now. We went in 2002 and they had alot of issues then but they had gotten new management in and were really trying to pull the resort around for the better. Doesn't sound like they were successful.

Did you by any chance eat in the exclusive restaurant while you were there? That is where we spent most of our dinners. The staff were so amazing when we went and the food was to die for.

We wouldn't go back but if we went to Fiji again and were at an island close by, we would definitely do a day trip over just to go to the restaurant.

Hi Cat,

Well we can fully recomend the Outrigger on the coral coast! It was the best place the staff were great the service was just the best and the pool was just to die for. LOL.

The place is quite well catered for honeymooners and ya also get a room up grade to an ocean view room with wine on arrival in your room and complimentary Outrigger Sarongs as well. They also have a fair bit of night time entertainment as well to occupy your time if thats what you want. Even though it is about 1 hr by private transfer it is well worth a place to look at and don't have a bad word to say about it in the slightest. smile.gif

Our whole package was about $3300 for the both of us for 7 nights.

Hope you have as much fun looking for places to stay as we did... laugh.gif

We stayed at the Warwick resort - it was amazing. Not really many kids, very romantic and quite reseonable prices!

I would go back in a second!

We stayed at Sonaisali and loved it!!! It was beautiful!!

There was only about 4 kids on the whole island at the time though so it probably made a difference. Our bure was up the end of the island so we didn't have people running past our bure either.

It was magical and very romantic and I would recommend it to anyone!

I have been to Malolo and its stunning... service, food, and facilities are great... my only complaint is that the beach is not that nice. There is alot of dead coral and it washes onto the beach... so sand is really sharp.. not very nice. You cant really walk barefoot. Also, there is no nice coral straight off the beach.. you need to kayak out abit to see nice coral.
Treasure Island is my preference now. Soft and silky sand, perfectly preserved coral... good meals, nice bures... its lovely!

Thanks girls...I'm looking at the Matamanoa Island Resort as we speak ... yummy... might avoid a family-oriented place though, I live below a 2 year old's bedroom and I am having homicidal! thoughts laugh.gif

unless you go to a resort/island that is exclusively adults only, you are going to run into children no matter where you go, as alot of those places have children specials where they stay/eat for free, that is why you see so many of them.

But you will also find that they have Kids Clubs and are kept busy most of the day with various activities.

TREASURE ISLAND! been there, loved it! The food there is terrific. We had a meal package and ate three times a day. When they have buffets, you don't have to eat from it, you can still choose meals from the a la carte menu.

we had the best bure on the island (well so people told us!). Ten man paces and you were on the beach............and we would keep our door slightly open at night with the sheer curtains and timber shutters pulled across and could still hear the ocean.

If you go to the coral coast, keep in mind that it is a long drive. I think the Warwick Fiji is the furtherest from the airport and that takes a good couple of hours I think. You can do all sorts of things there, including village tours, shopping tours to Suva. Lovely people, lovely place........swim up bar! (their sister resort doesn't have the swim up bar)

I can't remember the exact cost, but if its an island type holiday you want, then go somewhere like this rather than the Australian Island resorts, because the Aussie ones can cost just as much.

We have just received quotes for Mana Island which we are really happy with. For 6 nights (flights ex Melb, transfers, accom in Ocean Front Bure & breakfast) it is $1850 each. This island sounds great!!! We're so excited. biggrin.gif

Matamanoa is adults only, as is Tokoriki. No one under 16 allowed.
