Our Room
We stayed in a traditional Fijian style hut, which on the inside though was very modern and had everything we needed. Aircon, mosquito netting & wifi were all available from the room. Outside each of the huts there were also two large beautiful seashells implanted in the soil and filled with water daily, so we could wash our feet of the sand before going back inside, a nice touch.


Food
The food at Qamea was beautiful. Fresh Salads, Seafood & local specialties were all available. Gluten free & vegan options were also available, and we were never left hungry. There was also a gorgeous beach hut which once could book in advance to enjoy a romantic beachside dinner for sunset.


Service
If there was one thing that stood out from our stay at Qamea (besides the picturesque beauty all around us), it was the service and the warmth of the people working at the resort. The resort is almost exclusively staffed by local Fijians, who welcome you with big & warm smiles upon their faces. We have such fond memories of our interactions with them all, it feels from memory more like we stayed at friends, than at a resort. I was pleasantly surprised at how well everyone remembered our names, and it created an instant feeling of familiarity. From the waiters, to the cleaning maids, i can’t remember having ever felt so comfortable and instantly accepted by any group of people representing a venue or brand. There is truly something special about the Fijian people.


Activities
Qamea Island is world renowned for some of the most exceptional diving spots on our planet. The resort has a dedicated diving instructor who takes guests on daily trips to the surrounding Reefs. There is also a village of native Qamean residents a short boatride away, which you can visit with a guide for a truly cultural experience. We got to spend the afternoon with the Chief of the Island Daniel, a great man who made us feel very welcome. He even offered us a place to stay should we ever want to visit again.
There are also a set of 3 freshwater waterfalls, on the nearby island of Tavenui, which are a sight to see, and one can swim underneath them as well.
The resort also has a dedicated yoga & meditation instructor, who hosts daily classes to get back in touch with your body & soul.


Wifi
The wifi was fine, though there was an outage for a couple of days, which the staff assured us was out of character.
