“Untouched paradise – perfect honeymoon destination”. Maqai Resort, Qamea Island, Fiji.
My husband and I travelled to Fiji for our honeymoon for two weeks in Dec 2014. We stayed at the Coral Coast (the Warwick), Denarau (Sheraton) and at Maqai. Maqai was the most memorable by far!
Waking up to the sound of the ocean just metres away from the buree was spectacular. The island is an untouched piece of secret paradise and Maqai was the perfect place to force us to enjoy the simple things in life – good food, good company and good books!
The modest buree` was very comfortable and clean. It was thoroughly swept daily, which was awesome because nobody likes sand in the bed! The toilet was also cleaned daily. The ocean was pretty loud at night but we got used to it quite quickly.
A couple of cups of kava and listening to the awesome staff (Tex and John) sing and play guitar before bed also helped us sleep solidly.
Part of the place’s appeal is the way activities just organically happen. There are set activities, but most of the beauty is in the ability to just enjoy ‘Fiji time’ and go snorkelling, bushwalking, swimming at your own leisure.
The food was delicious, healthy and plentiful. Lucy and Fabi made a variety of dishes and accommodated for dietary requirements (I have coeliac disease). They would always make a special dessert if I couldn’t eat what everyone else was having.
There were countless situations, such as this, were staff added a personal touch to customer service, which made our stay so special.
Maqai honestly did feel like a humble home away from home and we were truly sad to leave. I would highly recommend checking out Maqai for anyone looking for an easy-going and authentic paradise.
