Have the Great Astrolabe reef to yourselves as you enjoy a true Fijian getaway and feel like you have dropped off the side of the Earth!Mai Dive is a small intimate resort offering a very personal service. We are a true Fijian getaway with all the creature comforts you could need in a very picturesque setting - the perfect spot with the Great Astrolabe Reef right on our doorstep.
Our location, which can be seen on Google maps or on our website www.maidive.com is perfectly positioned for easy access to some of the best dive and snorkel locations the Astrolabe Reef has to offer.
Fiji is the soft coral captial of the world and the Astrolabe is the 4th largest barrier reef in the world. We are fortunate to be so close to as many snorkel sites as dive sites. The Mai Dive house reef stretches offshore for 800 meters from the resort and contains a maze of colourful corals and fish life - all you have to do is just walk out from the beach.
There are three main regions that we dive; Naigoro Passage, Alacrity Rocks and the outer reef. Each have multiple dive sites and are very different from each other, giving us diversity that will keep dive fanatics occupied and happy for well over a week.
Our trip advisor reviews speak for themselves and we are proud to be a winner of the “Trip Advisor – Travelers Choice Award” for 6 years running. This has enabled us to enter the Trip Advisor 'Hall of Fame' - 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and recently in 2015 (where we got 6th spot for Best Service Hotels in the whole of Fiji!)!

Room typesThere are only 5 bures which are strung across the resort - all absolute beachfront and just metres to the sand! Our rooms can accommodate a maximum of 16 guests at any one time but we usually only have 10 or less. We're small enough to hire the whole resort and organize your own private itinerary on a daily basis with the help of the experts on hand!
Our bures have 24 hour electricity, fan cooling, screened windows, mosquito nets, a private deck, ensuite bathroom, open hot water shower, outdoor chairs and your very own hammock. All bures have the same internal configuration but with different sizes to cater for different parties: singles, couples and families. We also have the ability to merge 2 of our adjoined bures to create a larger accommodation, just like a house which is perfect for larger families and groups.
