Maroon yourself on Castaway, Fiji’s friendliest island

December 27th, 2015 by admin | Filed under Blog.

It’s tough not to be happy in Fiji.

Surrounded by bluish waters and holidaymakers seeking respite, visitors find themselves respirating a whine of service during a initial sound of ‘bula’.

But even in this many halcyon of settings, where even a internal wandering dogs are in high spirits, genuine regard strikes a chord.

Scroll down for video

Nowhere have we seen some-more smiles than on Castaway Island, a initial private island review in a eminent Mamanuca Islands. 

Touching down on a white sands after a 20 notation seaplane moody from Nadi, a initial pointer of a cheeriness came in a form of a guitar rope heralding a attainment with a acquire song.

After being handed a uninformed splash and forked in a instruction of accepting and a dual restaurants, we were walked to a beachfront bures to relax.

On a proceed we perceived an eager ‘bula!’ from any staff member we passed, call my worry that they had confused me with a prolonged mislaid crony or returning guest.

Secluded: Each room during a review is a possess beach front bure, providing guest with combined privacy 

Comfort: A king-sized bed awaits guest in a bedroom of a beach front bure. Upon arrival, we detected sarongs and beach bags had been solemnly left for a use

‘We all know any other, and if we don’t, we will soon,’ we was corrected by my messenger who after examination her possess mom work on a review as a child, happily took on a position of avocation manager herself after withdrawal school.

Once nestled in a comfort of my hovel (each of a islands 64 guestrooms is freestanding) we began to know because so many (40%) of Castaway’s guest are ‘returnees’.

An superb shifting bamboo row distant my wealthy king-size bed and sensuous en-suite from a neat lounge. In a minibar sat a jug of daub H2O with 4 cold glasses, a acquire change to overpriced bottles of a workman kind we competence find in other hotels. 

On a porch of any bure hangs a soaking line for towels and soppy swimsuits and a steel bucket of H2O for guest to rinse a silt from their feet before creation their proceed inside.

Stunning: Perhaps a many special underline of Castaway Island is a relaxed backdrop, permitting for a many richly charming nightfall possibly of us had ever seen

Such touches of observance set Castaway Island detached – guest are left to themselves to tell scrupulously though carrying to call on staff to support to their whims (should they need help, it is fast found in a solid tide of staff strolling around a sensuous grounds). 

Guests unequivocally are left to their possess inclination – there’s no Wifi in bedrooms and phone vigilance is intermittent. 

While a bar, accepting and restaurants yield internet access, visitors are wholeheartedly speedy to unplug for a generation of their stay. 

Some competence find this a widen too far. Surrounded by zero though H2O and a substantial debate to a nearest airport, Castaway Island is a really hint of a name.

But disconnecting from a rest of a universe is accurately a indicate of this enchanting enclave. Little suspicion goes over a island once on it.

Owned by a Outrigger Resort group, Castaway Island falls underneath a organisation’s new Ozone Infinitive that seeks to strengthen coral and sea life surrounding any of a properties. 

While Ozone looks out for a coral, sea life is stable underneath internal supervision laws that demarcate fishing.

With such closely rhythmical treasures sneaking in a surrounding waters, snorkelling is among activities speedy on a island. 

Guests are acquire to steal pack giveaway of assign to try a shallows off 3 beaches so prolonged as apparatus is returned unharmed, though a improved proceed to knowledge a low blue is to take a outing serve afield.

We hopped on a speedboat for a private guided debate of House Reef where an contentment of class can be dignified adult close. 

While a outing was cut brief by a pound of mini jellyfish famous locally as sea lice, what we did see was zero brief of wondrous. Floating above House Reef underneath a instruction of a accessible guide, Knocks, we were means to see first-hand only because a sourroundings is so fiercely protected.

Among them is 1808, an award-winning Asian alloy eatery whose chefs prepare al-fresco on a kitchen built into a sand.

Water Edge, a other restaurant, offers a some-more infrequent approach. Seafood linguine and prawns with papaya are some of a no-fuss dishes and a locally sourced ‘kokoda’ – tender white fish in a cold chowder – is a ideal appetizer. 

Its desserts are a genuine uncover capsule with espresso cheesecake and ‘volcano’ chocolate fondants among puddings on a menu.

There are attractions for a loyal operation of guests. Honeymooners can suffer a private beach cooking while relatives can take advantage of a kids bar (6.30pm – 10pm including a supervised meal). 

Bidding farewell to a Castaway Island was done all a some-more formidable by a comfortable hugs and kisses we perceived from staff wishing us a happy Christmas and protected leading travel. 

With a island descending serve out of steer as we done a proceed behind to a mainland, we began to see a interest in anticipating oneself truly expel away.
