My favorite place on Earth
We honeymooned at Qamea in August 2009, and loved it so much that on the plane home we decided to return for our 10 year anniversary. We made it in October 2019, and had a trip that was probably even better than the first! Our honeymoon was largely cloudy (which didn't stop us from having a fabulous time), but this time we had sunshine all week. We went snorkeling, ate delicious food, lazed around our private hot tub and pool at the Royal Beach House, and had the most relaxing vacation ever. We used the meal plan, which was a great choice. When you arrive at the beautiful open-air (but covered) restaurant for breakfast, there is a continental buffet you can eat from, and one of the wonderful staff members will quickly bring you the day's menus. You order your breakfast, two-course lunch, and three-course dinner at breakfast , and then when you arrive for lunch and dinner your first course appears within minutes. The most phenomenal thing about Qamea, as always, is the staff. They are friendly, kind, accommodating, and they all know your name within 24 hours. The grounds of the resort are beautiful, with a high degree of privacy between bures (even in the Beachfront bures, which aren't THAT far apart, they're angled such that you can't see any other bures from your front porch). Every detail of the stay, from your initial greeting with a fruity drink and flowers upon arrival to the song and flowers at your departure, is just delightful. I cannot wait to go back!
Perfect tropical vacation
This is such a special place! My partner (who had never been to Fiji) and I (who have been there many times) agreed that Qamea Resort is our favorite holiday ever. The location on Qamea Island - 10 minutes by boat from Taveuni - is stunningly beautiful, and every accommodation has a gorgeous view of the beach, the ocean and the green mountains of Taveuni across the channel. All the excursions - the waterfall, the snorkeling and the village visit - were great. The diving offered here includes the best known sites in the area, but we went to a less well known site nearby for a "discovery dive" since my partner is not certified, and it was amazingly beautiful! Thank you Edward! The staff is friendly, efficient and took very good care of us, The food ranged from excellent to amazing, and if we preferred to dine on our own, the meal arrived at our door. This is a place where you can really unwind, but if you still need good internet you can get it. Our room was spacious and we loved the outdoor shower (covered in case of rain), and the refrigerator, coffee maker and the hammock on the front porch. Furthermore - the management really helped us when a class 2 cyclone disrupted our plans. They made changes to flights and helped me get a refund at my next destination when it became impossible to travel there. In spite of the changes we had to make, they made the whole experience work out for the best. Thanks Ron! Qamea Resort is a wonderful blend of high end services (world class diving AND a spa with European trained masseuses) and an authentic Fijian experience. While you are here, you come to understand that you are visiting a place where "progress" has not undercut tradition. While the local people have cell phones, they also still live off the land and sea in their traditional way. You really can have such an exotic experience and still enjoy all the comforts of a high end resort!
Wonderful island resort stay
My husband and I spent an idyllic week at Qamea Resort. A beautiful spot right on the beach where we got both our open water and advanced diving certs (and did some amazing dives in the process under the friendly and professional instruction of Edward and Lui). The spa is really terrific - great massages and other treatments. Lovely bures (cottages), great food and drinks and above all really friendly and attentive service. General manager Leyh runs a great resort! Someday we’ll be back...
WOW - Just, Wow. Complete Paradise
What an unforgettable vacation. This resort is complete paradise. My wife and I went for our honeymoon for 10+ days and we had the trip of a lifetime. We have traveled a fair amount to various islands and countries but nothing else compares to Qamea. The staff are the friendliest people in the world, the food was very good (french toast at breakfast was to die for) and overall the entire experience was life changing. The spa was amazing especially for someone who is very particular about massages and prefers very strong, deep tissue massages, they certainly applied the pressure needed to break up the knots in my back! Not to mention the spa is up in the jungle so you just heard the noises of the birds and tropical animals while in total relaxation. We did both waterfall hikes/tours as well as the "Circle Qamea" snorkel tour and all three were fun and magical. I could go on and on but words dont do this place justice, you must experience it for yourself. Dream vacation for honeymooners who want complete and utter privacy and to totally unwind and relax.
Remote Luxury Paradise!
If you are looking for an off the beaten path luxury resort this is the answer! After flying into a small airport the Qamea staff will pick you up and whisk you away to a small beach. From there you'll climb aboard one of Qamea's boats to head off to your (almost) private island paradise! The staff is absolutely incredible. Most, if not all, of them are from local villages. They will go above and beyond any expectation to make your stay perfect. We are vegan and they accommodated us every way possible. One morning they did not have any fresh coconut cream for our coffee, we said no problem at all and that we were happy to enjoy it without. Five minutes later one of the staff had climbed a tree retrieved a coconut and made FRESH coconut cream! The dive master changed his schedule to leave the island so we could dive on Yellow Wall, highly recommend! As is the case in all of Fiji the inner reefs were severly damaged during a cyclone a few years ago. There are still some good options close by but I would recommend looking into either of the 'dive charters' (worth the extra fee). CJ, the surf instructor with Tropic Surf (highly recommend any Tropic Surf location) was incredible! The accommodations were perfect too. Private, lovely, AC if you like. The spa team was top notch and were able to work out even the deepest knots! 10/10 would recommend to any couple!
