Oneta Resort Quick Pitch 

Oneta Resort is a small family run eco-resort on one of the most untouched and beautiful islands in Fiji.  It is very remote, it’s a little wild, and it’s somewhat hard to get to – but that’s exactly the point. Hidden away on an island with no roads, very few tourists, and world class diving, we can truly say that it’s one of the few places in the world where you can still find both quiet solitude and true adventure.

How to Get There

Most guests arrive at the international airport in Nadi and then fly straight on to Vunisea, Kadavu with Fiji Link. Once you land in Kadavu, Oneta staff will be at the airport to greet you and will take you by boat to the resort. It is about an hour boat ride from the Kadavu airport to Oneta depending upon weather. 

 

Dive Overview

Diving is one of the big reasons why people come to this area of the world and to Oneta.  The Astrolabe Reef is one of the largest reef in the world. It stretches for countless miles around the Kadavu Archipelago. There are fish here that you cannot see anywhere else and hard and soft corals come in all different kinds of colors.

Turtle Lair

Turtle Lair Bure

Turtle Lair sits on the ridge above the resort and from its private deck it has one of the best views in Fiji.  It is the largest bure on the property and the most private but you have to earn your privacy by climbing up the steep staircase from the main lodge.  A large Indonesian style bed stands in the middle of the room with an en suite bathroom behind it.  A bamboo-enclosed outdoor shower with plenty of hot water is attached to the bure.   Some guests have opted to stay inside the bure for most of their time at Oneta, only emerging when the sound of the conch shell or the lali drum calls them down for dinner.

Beachfront Bure

Beachfront Bures

Vesi and Shark Alley are the two beachfront bures and they are just short walk from the main lodge.  Vesi (also a namesake of a native tree) is larger and has beautiful polished mahogany floors.  Shark Alley is a bit smaller but lies closer to the water.  Both have high-pitched soga palm roofs and small private decks that look towards the beach.  They are shaded by greenery and fruit trees but have a clear view of the ocean that is only a short distance away.  Each of these bures has an en suite bathroom and a bamboo-enclosed outdoor shower with plenty of hot water.  Sit on your porch and enjoy an afternoon drink as you count the fish jumping in the ocean.

Garden Bure

Garden Bures

Split Rock and Purple Wall, our two garden bures, are set back among the fruit trees and flowering shrubs of the garden.  They are a little further back from the beach but certainly have their own charm and privacy.  They also have king beds, en suite bathrooms and the outdoor bamboo-enclosed shower with hot and cold water.  Take a couple of steps to the nearest mango or papaya tree (when they are in season) to pick your fresh snack.  Or walk up to the main lodge where the staff will have your fresh coconut and sliced mango and papaya waiting for you.

Archway

Archway

Archway is designed to accommodate larger groups that want to stay together in the same room. Larger families choose this bure or fishermen that prefer to stay together. It also may be a more cost-effective way to stay at Oneta for a group. The rates for this bure are per person with a minimum of three people needed to book it. Archway is quite spacious and features six single beds separated by hanging bamboo mats that give a little privacy to each person. It has a large en suite bathroom and two outdoor bamboo enclosed showers with lots of hot and cold water.

Villa Levu

Villa Levu

The two bedroom Villa Levu, is actually one of the largest houses in the Kadavu Archipelago. It features beautiful high ceilings and mahogany floors in the large living and dining rooms, plus a well-appointed kitchen and a comfortable bathroom with a large tub. Unexpected luxury awaits here amongst the untouched natural splendor of this outer island.

You can choose to join other guests for dinner at the main lodge or you can opt to have your meals in the privacy of this wonderful retreat.   You also have the choice to cook meals for yourself.

Villa Lailai

Villa Lailai

A beautiful large deck with a lovely ocean view surrounds Villa Lailai.  Built into the deck is a plunge pool that is filled fresh from our spring. 

Each of the two bedrooms in Villa Lailai has a king bed with a shared elegant bathroom and the living room is a cozy place to relax.  It’s the perfect place to live in comfort while exploring the wild beauty of the island. While most guests staying at Villa Lailai choose to have their meals at the main lodge with other guests, we can setup private dinners upon request.

Ono Island Diving

The diving around Ono Island is world class and since it is not as well known as Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, there is almost no damage here.  It is still a pristine and untouched world and water clarity is usually more than 100m. It is also relatively unharmed so far by bleaching unlike so many reefs around the world.

 

 

The Great Astrolabe Reef

The Great Astrolabe Reef is the largest reef in Fiji and the fourth largest in the world.  It’s known for its astounding coral gardens with a large variety of colorful soft corals -Dendronephthya, Alycyoniidae Xeniidae and Gorgonia to name a few. An abundance of fish of all sizes makes every dive an exciting event. There are plenty of colorful coral dwellers to look at as well as large schools of fish to swim through. Reef sharks are often present, turtles make frequent appearances and divers may occasionally be surprised by dolphins or whales.

Oneta Resort Dive Center Overview

 Oneta Resort has a purposefully small diving operation, so they can really personalize each dive experience for guests. They have new top-of-the-line dive gear and the newly outfitted dive boat has shade, tank holders and convenient exit and entrance points. Guests are in good hands with their excellent dive master, Salote. She has worked for many years in resorts all around Fiji before settling here with Oneta at the beautiful Astrolabe Reef.
