A perfect blend of white sandy beaches, coral reef, a sunny climate year round plus, friendly Fijian hospitality and culture with an exciting range of water sports. A dive and beach holiday in Fiji doesn't get much better than this! From the lush tropical gardens to high end quality accommodation, Volivoli Beach Resort has evolved into one of the best boutique family run resorts in Fiji!
Volivoli Beach is tucked away on the northernmost tip of Viti Levu, Fiji's main island. The north of Viti Levu Island is a little off the beaten track for many travellers. From Nadi International Airport it is a 2 1/2 to 3 hours scenic drive (length depending on road conditions). The resort is just ten minutes drive from the village of Rakiraki.
Volivoli Beach Resort is located in a truly unspoilt and spectacular corner of Fiji, having some of the best diving in Fiji right in front their door. Ra Divers, the in-house dive shop, offers great value dive packages for beginners and experienced divers. Divers will find a variety of marine life and fascinating shipwrecks nearby, just waiting to be explored.
The resort is owned and managed by the dedicated Darling Family, originally from New Zealand, they fell in love with Fiji, purchased Ra Divers and built the resort. Volivoli is one of only a very few dive resorts in Fiji with a beautiful beach. In fact ‘Volivoli’ means sand in the local dialect, and the beach was named after the sand spit which stretches 80 metres (264 ft) out to sea, providing a wonderful sunbathing spot and marking the most northerly point of Viti Levu. Volivoli Beach is the water sports hub for the North, and the deepwater bay means that water sports are possible at high or low tide, unlike many other resorts in Fiji. Another advantage is that this area has a lower annual rainfall than many other parts of Fiji.
The resort has different types of accommodation: 11 Premium Oceanview Bures, 9 Deluxe Oceanview Rooms and 8 Standard Oceanview Rooms, the last a great room option for families or a group of divers. Opening in 2017 will be their 8 newly constructed Luxury Oceanview Bures.
