Crusoe's Retreat - a laid-back, casual, traditional Fijian beach resort.  Fronting a palm-fringed sandy beach, Crusoe's boasts only 28 Fijian-style bures, and is located directly next to a traditional Fijian village, where guests can spend time with the most friendly people on earth.

Crusoe’s Retreat is a small, intimate resort located on Fiji’s famous Coral Coast.  With only 28 Fiji-inspired Bures, Crusoe’s is a relaxed, tropical getaway.  Located next to a traditional Fijian village, you are encouraged to visit our friendly neighbors, and experience firsthand how time-honoured traditions and ancient customs continue to shape everyday life, and see for yourself why Fijians are consistently recognized as the friendliest people on earth.  

While Crusoe’s Retreat is a boutique resort, it features all of the services you would expect from a much larger resort.  Many complimentary activities are available to our guests.  A full service Tour Desk can arrange for exciting excursions and adventures around the island.  

Crusoe’s Restaurant serves fresh local dishes, while the Cocktail Bar and thatched roof Coco's Pool Bar are popular gathering places.  A PADI scuba dive centre serves up world-famous Fiji diving, including full dive instruction.  Relax and indulge at Coco's Spa, and enjoy a wide array of spa treatment options.  An expansive sun deck encircles our fresh-water swimming pool (our famous “Foot Pool”).  Nightly entertainment delivers a true taste of Fiji.  A boutique, wi-fi internet-access, both water and land activities, and much more help deliver all the services you want, all with very friendly Fijian hospitality.

Crusoe's Retreat truly is Fiji's Best Kept Secret.

Room types

The most private and romantic accommodation at Crusoe’s Retreat is the Deluxe SeaSide Bure. A thatched roof, polished local hardwood floors, dramatic ceilings with traditionally designed beams, and rattan lined walls, this very traditional Bure also features very modern amenities, including air-conditioning, two-person showers, and a stunning open-air, river rock outdoor shower. The verandah features a covered area as well as a private hammock, and the Bure is within steps of the sandy beach. Reserved exclusively for couples.

With a prime location in the tropical gardens, the SeaSide Bure is ideally situated to access the beach, the pool, and the resort grounds with ease. With soaring ceilings, either one or two Queen size beds (can be set up with one Queen and two Single beds), a comfortable sitting area, and a large covered verandah with sweeping views, the SeaSide Bure is perfect for couples or small families. The spacious sitting area and bedroom are designed in tropical fashion, and opens into the large bathroom.  

Boasting dramatic views of Crusoe’s tropical gardens, beach and ocean, the Deluxe SeaView Bure is situated on Crusoe’s hillside. The Bure features either one or two Queen size beds, and can even be set up with one Queen and two single beds, making it the perfect choice for couples or small families. Each Bure has its own private covered verandah with comfortable furniture, and outstanding views. The large bedroom and sitting room area has a soaring ceiling, and opens into a large bathroom.  

Perched on the hillside overlooking beautiful gardens and great ocean views, our SeaView Bures are perfect for single travelers on couples on a budget. These six Bures are situated in three separate buildings, each encompassing two bures. With one Queen size bed, some comfortable furniture both in an indoor sitting area and an outdoor verandah, the SeaView Bure truly has a lot to offer.

Crusoe's Scuba Diving 

Ah, Fiji. Just the mention of the word Fiji conjures up a scuba diver's dream.  Diverse, healthy marine life; vibrant colours of soft and hard coral; an explosion of macro life; big fish experiences. 

Diving at Crusoe's is effortless and the dive operation reflects the uniqueness of the Crusoe's Retreat setting.  

The dive sites vary in standard from beginner to advanced, and the range of marine life and corals is amazing.  The dive sites we visit are in excellent natural condition and are not crowded with large dive groups from other resorts. Our highly qualified local dive crew have been diving these waters for many years.  Our aim is to provide you with a friendly world class diving experience, in a beautiful and safe location.  Our focus is on safety and ease of use.  


Crusoe's Retreat is located approximately two hours from the Nadi International Airport.  Crusoe's can arrange for nonstop, direct, air-conditioned car or van transfers.  The drive to the Resort is along Fiji's famous Coral Coast, and you will drive through many traditional Fijian villages, with many smiling faces and beautiful nature.
