Volivoli Beach Resort inspires action from diving to a cocktail swim
We feel the energy at Volivoli Beach Resort as soon as we arrive. There are builders completing work on new luxury villas, dive boats coming and going – and a skilful bloke kite surfing across the lagoon. From our elevated viewpoint we find ourselves swivelling to absorb all the stimulating action.
The resort has a vibe that inspires activity at all levels – but simply relaxing remains firmly on the menu. Some may be here for a serious dive charter – or they may wish to simply swim across the pool for one of Isaac’s legendary cocktails. Whichever, this is a magical retreat to from which to watch the sun set while yarning about the day’s adventures.
The journey from Nadi to Volivoli, located at the northern tip of Viti Levu, comes after an enjoyable three-hour drive. Normally a two-and-a-half hour drive, for us the journey is slowed by lumbering sugar cane trucks. But there’s no desire for indecent haste. We’ve been in Fiji a week and are now definitely tuned to “island time.” We’ve learned to savour the moment.
