We stayed for five nights and had the best time. We had a four year old and they were so great with her. Such a lovely atmosphere. Laid back and relaxing. Friendly staff . Food was good. We chose to order from the menu rather than the buffet . Had a few different options during the day such as sandwiches you could order. Had teppenyaki one night. That was superb. On the end of the pier with the sun setting. So beautiful. I liked the simplicity. No tv in the room. The beauty of the frangipani trees. The kids catching crabs and playing outside climbing trees. Was great to see the turtles released. A beautiful white sandy beach around the whole island. Clear blue sea. Was quiet. Nice families staying . Met some lovely people. Kids club was great. Excellent for families. Loved it.
Keep looking if you want quality and value. Booked here for 6 nights with the family and we wanted to change after the second nights and so glad we did. Don’t get me wrong the views are great and beach is ok. Snorkeling was nice also but that’s about it. The negatives I found are Food is too expensive for poor quality and cold meals. Expecting so much more for the price. Stay away from the poor quality $82 pp buffet which is basically a bbq one night. The beer is expensive $20 Fiji for a corona which is very excessive. Also a lack of option. 4 choices each night for Main The facilities need a bit of love. In our accomodation the cold tap was hot and the hot was cold so my daughter just about burn herself. Facilities very basic for the cost. Aircon could work much better also. Booked the under water glass boat one morning and they could not get it running. Make sure you wear shoes as the paths are getting very rough. Staff are friendly but it’s like they are on holiday also. Everything is on Bula time that’s for sure.
We recently stayed on treasure for 7 nights taking friends with us for their first visit, this was our 7th time staying. We really love the relaxed atmosphere of the island the wonderful staff and being able to swim and snorkel on the reef that is so close. As returning visitors we are treated like family and it is awesome to see the staff we have gotten to know over the years with a special thanks to Henry, Serena from the restaurant who was superb, Abby our lovely house keeper and John who always stopped to talk while doing the garden and the lovely young ladies at reception. One comment would be that I know the bures are being renovated, our bathroom was in particularly bad shape but in saying that we will be back next year and our friends will be as well. One last thing coffee cups rather than tea cups in the rooms would be great. See you next year.
The real treasure here are the staff on the island - John and Joshua who kept the gardens tidy and were always ready with a beautiful warm welcome, Henry's lovely singing, Ruby, Alain and Took's smiling helpful faces in the restaurant, and of course the boys at Sea Fiji making all the water pursuits delightfully easy and entertaining. These staff were all so warm, friendly and helpful they made our stay one to remember. If you expect 5 star accommodation and gourmet food, then you may be disappointed. However, If you love clean, crystal clear warm water, snorkelling amongst the brightly coloured fish in the coral reefs, or even relaxing on the beach with absolutely nothing to do, then this is definitely the place for you. Feeling totally relaxed and dreaming of our next snorkel...
It was really sad for us to see the disaster of the conservation program. They keep turtles in small sea water pool to attract tourist and make sure they always have a couple swimming around in their surrounding water, so they can make tourist pay to go on feeding trip. NEVER FEED WILD ANIMALS This program just kills any opportunity for turtles to have a real life, migrating and come back to nest. They now barely have one turtle nest every year as it use to be a natural nesting habitat. They exchange babies with the neighbouring bounty island :-( First thing would be to switch of the terribly powerful lights at night during nesting seasons, and second would be to release the babies the very first night they hatch, you need 1000 baby to have one returning adult, every single one kept in pools kills the chances. You should take example of turtle island in Borneo or Hilton head in The US. The resort pretend to have a marine biologist, didn't see any, when I asked, they assured me there was one, but no name mentioned and no photo/diploma references... We spend one night on the island, commuting from the Yasawa to the Malolo Island. Staff is under pressure and not friendly. The front lady looked like she just wanted me to leave, offered me the first early transfer, not mentioning the mid-day boat, I wanted to enjoy the reef, half destroyed, it is still full of fishes and we saw a grouper and a reef shark. Food is expensive and basic. More expensive than the better hotel we visited for a poor quality. Didn't try the private restaurant Plenty of activities for kids with unlimited mini-golf and tennis, friendly kids-club, it's a good place for family gathering on a budget. But please let them know you want them to really protect the turtle and let them nest, at least by switching off the lights during nesting season...
My husband and I have just returned from a holiday to Treasure island. It was relaxing, hot and an enjoyable break. We took some duty free and snacks with us and we. recommend this! It's expensive for food and drink, naturally, because it's an island. The staff were friendly in the main- but don't expect amazing service- every night we had finished our meal before we were asked if we wanted drinks- if that's a big deal to you, then this probably isn't the place for you. It's very family friendly, and full of kids. The burres all share a wall- and so you can hear kids and babies through the night- just something to be aware of. The spa is ok- does what it says on the tin, but not fancy or anything, and much of the coral around the island is damaged which is a real shame. Those turquoise waters are like a bath and really great for swimming in still. If you have young kids, Treasure would be a great option I'm sure.
I was hesitant when my husband first said where he booked us... No TV... No Wifi... AHHH.. For the most part, it was the best four nights of our 18 night vacation. To get there it was a 27 hour long trip for us - we arrived on the 4th of October, Merani was not real pleasant to deal with at the front. We told her we were exhausted, how long we traveled and she really didn't care - she didn't do anything to get us into our bure quickly. She also didn't listen when we explained our transfer departure, it was frustrating to say the least. Once we did get into our room - it was an incredible island stay. We actually want to stay again and not stay on the mainland at all next time we go. Our housekeeper, wish I had gotten her name, was the best housekeeper we have had, no matter how hot it was, never complained and ALWAYS greeted us with a smile. She was the best. Ruby was our waitress at their special restaurant, again as the servers went she was the best. Lots of families on this island which surprised us for the time of year we went, assumed they'd be in school... They have a fun turtle sanctuary where you can help clean and feed them - tons of fun. The water was incredible - the snorkeling was some of the best we have ever done - we've been many places to snorkel and Treasure Island has raised the bar. We found a Crown of Thorns starfish which is dangerous to the eco system, reported it and their team found it and removed it right away. Overall, this is a great island - if you need rest and relaxation, this is THE place to be. I almost didn't post my review because i want to keep this place a secret!!! :)
Prior to going to Treasure Island we read as many reviews as we could. Some people loved it some didn't. Some said that it was tired looking and a bit dated. Well I can say that if you were also built in 1972 or before then I'm sure on occasions you feel a bit tired and dated as well. Having said that they have updated the bures to a modern day feel. We were a family of 4 and were very comfortable in our bure with 2 single beds for the boys and a king bed for us. The food was great, we went for the all inclusive meal package and were spoilt for choice. The buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner was definitely worth it. Next time (because we will be going back) I think we will also go for the inclusive drinks package, although limited to the times you can use it I think it would definitely be worthwhile. They know how to feed the kids as well, hamburgers, hotdogs, crumbed chicken and fish just what kids love to eat and although they feed the kids between 5.30pm and 6.30pm which we thought might not work real well it wasn't a problem at all as if they wanted they could go off to kids club after dinner whilst we had dinner from 7pm. Which brings us on to Kids Club!! How good is that our eldest boy (9) wasn't real keen on the idea initially but when he got there loved it. Kids club 3 times a day! (morning, afternoon and evening) if you want. Although our kids didn't go to all 3 every day (otherwise it wouldn't have been much of a family holiday) it did give you a chance to just sit and chill when they did. The evening kids club was great giving us a chance to sit, eat and have a chat, even if it was about the kids! Ma, Nathan and Ice definitely know how to look after the kids, absolute credit to Treasure Island, don't let them go Treasure Island! If you get the chance do the Teppenyaki with the kids for dinner and a Sunset Bure dinner just for the adults whilst you send the kids to kids club. Great entertainment every night with the band and something different each night whether it's crab races or the kids club putting on a show. The staff on Treasure Island absolutely know how to treat their guests Tui, Missy and Serita (?) at the bar, fantastic, right down to the wait staff Soko and others in the dining area and Elvis in the dive shop. Beautiful water for snorkelling at your doorstep and the free use of kayaks, standup paddle boards and snorkelling gear. If you get the chance also take the time to do the Village visit to Malolo Island a bit of
Meant to write this sooner however life gets busy...hence the reason we come to relax at places like Treasure Island Resort. We came at end of July with our 15yr old twins. We had a premium ocean front room which was great. Roomy, clean, located a little back from the beach but close to the turtles so walking to and from the restaurant and bar was easy on the inland path or beach front. As we read in other reviews, there was an odor towards the end of our stay. Just a minor "gray water" smell. The island is very small and quiet, exactly what we were looking for. We did have wind for a few days and low tide was pretty early in the afternoon so some activities were missed. Our kids did complete their scuba certification with Elvis though. The reefs are still recovering from the previous storm damage and there is a good amount of silt so visibility was not perfect but the diving was great anyway. The food was hit and miss. Some items were surprisingly good but most were just okay. The teppenyaki was amazing and we highly recommend that. We did not do a food plan. Although our kids are older and did not partake in the kids club, it looked amazing. The entire staff here are incredible, especially Missy. This place makes you feel like family and I cannot express in words how special everyone is. We would definitely come back, especially if we had young children. I wish there was a higher rating than 5 stars for service. Vinaka to Treasure Island Resort and everyone who made our vacation wonderful!!!
Just returned from 5 nights on treasure island. Arrived in the dark, to a warm welcome and dinner, and woke to blue skies and sparkling water a few metres from our bungalow spent most days swimming, snorkelling, paddle boarding, kayaking, eating, feeding fish, turtles and iguanas, and just relaxing. The resort was fully booked but never felt rushed or crowded. Setting was beautiful and peaceful, food on the whole was very good, especially the local recipes such as the curries, and a real highlight was the staff. Nathan greeted us when we arrived, sent us away with a tear jerking song as we left (at 330 am believe it or not) and seemed to be everywhere in between,and was great with the kids, as was Ice. Ruby was exceptional with her service, always with a smile, as was Alita and Sereana. We never waited more than a few minutes before someone came by to ask us about drinks or meals . John was up for chat about the island's gardens whenever you passed by. All the staff were exceptionally good at making you feel welcome and the vibe on the island was very friendly, and we certainly appreciated it.. The island was beautiful, though dry at this time of year. The reef closer to the drop off was still in pretty good condition with lots of fish and corals. some of the resort looked a bit tired , but overall the island was beautiful. If you want to experience the beauty of Fiji and its people, I think this island is perfect.
