Resort Description

Octopus Resort is a 4* hotel with a focus on authentic Fijian hospitality and world-class diving.

The resort itself is just steps away from the sand, and only a few more steps to their beautiful coral reef, where you'll find the resort's very own PADI dive center. So as tempting as it may be to sip cold drinks at the Coconut Bar and dip in and out of the pool, there are plenty of adventures to be had on your doorstep, including fantastic snorkeling, guided hikes and diving with giant manta rays.

The rooms range from large beachfront villas to cosy garden bures, so there's something to suit every group size and budget. The restaurant is the hub of the resort, where guests from all around the world gather the share good food and a love of diving. The fish is always freshly caught, the produce is all grown locally, and the crystal clear spring water comes straight from the beautiful mountain behind the resort. Try one of Joe's Electric Octopus cocktails while the sun sinks into the ocean.
