What took you there?
A group of friends and I wanted to enjoy some time in Fiji after a friend’s wedding at a fancy resort, and I’d heard the Beachhouse was a great way to experience the “real Fiji”.
What was your room like?
We had our own room in one of the freestanding bungalows. It was huge, clean and had plenty of authentic details. But to be honest, we barely spent any time in there as the communal spaces were so comfortable and relaxing, we only went to our room to sleep.
What about the venue
As the name suggests, this place feels more like a friend’s idyllic holiday home than a hostel or hotel. The service is super friendly and relaxed, as is the atmosphere. A few of us were already sunburnt from before we arrived, so we took advantage of the shade of the palms and played darts, pool, and volleyball. I spent most of my time reading in the hammock between the palm trees, complemented by the soundtrack of the waves lapping onto the beach. Best of all, guests have direct beach access to the crystal clear waters which are perfect for swimming, surfing, snorkeling, SUPing, and soaking up sunsets.
Tell us about the destination
The Beach House is located on Fiji’s main island, only a couple of hours from the airport and away from the touristy areas of Fiji so it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. There aren’t many beaches on the mainland, surprisingly, so this place really is a hidden treasure.
