Castaway Island is a pristine private island surrounded by gorgeous white sand beaches and vibrant coral reefs that can be explored by snorkelling straight off the beach.  Fiji's most popular island resort for romantic couples, families and friends, offers everything you come to Fiji to find.
Castaway Island ticks all the boxes.  A picture perfect welcoming island paradise where everyone feels at home.

Stylish accommodation is in traditional style 'bures', with thatched roofs and high vaulted ceilings lined with beautiful hand painted 'tapa' cloth.  Interiors could be described as casual elegance, featuring natural rattan and timber furnishings.  Choose from Island or Ocean View bures located throughout the gardens or Beach Bures located along the two stunning beach fronts.

Everyone wants to eat well on vacation and our team of Chefs led by Executive Chef Lance Seeto, bring delicious menu options to your table that are suited to the tropical environment.  Passionate about providing international cuisine with a distinct Fijian influence, our Chefs use a bounty of local organic and imported produce across three dining outlets.

A tropical island vacation conjures up thoughts of pretty white sand beaches, swaying palm trees and crystal clear waters teaming with colourful fish and corals.   This is exactly what you will find at Castaway Island - surely one of Mother Nature's finest masterpieces.

Castaway Island's family of staff provide genuine and caring Fijian hospitality.  Your home away from home is a welcoming environment where guests return year after year to enjoy the magic of Castaway. 

An extensive range of water sports and activities will keep every age occupied.  The legendary Castaway Kids Club is open from 9:00am to 10:00pm daily offering complimentary activities for children from 3 years of age.

With complimentary use of all non motorised sports equipment, you can spend the day snorkelling, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, catamaran sailing, windsurfing or playing tennis on the championship court.  PADI diving, fishing, parasailing, water skiing, dolphin safaris, surfing and island hopping excursions are also on offer.  

Castaway is everyone's pace and everyone's place.

Room types

65 free standing 'bures' are built in the style of a Fijian village with thatched roofs and tapa lined high vaulted ceilings.  Choose from Island, Ocean View or Beach Bures.

All bures are both air-conditioned and fan cooled and feature louvre windows with screens to capture the South Pacific tradewinds.  

Most bures offer one king bed and two single beds with the two areas separated by a sliding privacy screen.  Well appointed and with stylish timber and rattan interiors, the bures offer tea and coffee making, refrigerator, ironing facilities, bathrobes, toiletries and are serviced daily.

Bathrooms featuring natural tumbled marble have a separate toilet and shower.

One Family Beach Bure can accommodate up to 10 persons across three bedrooms and with two bathrooms.

At additional cost and on request, Castaway offer a small amount of bures that can accommodate larger families of five.  

With similar accommodation and appointments throughout all bure types, you only need to decide if you prefer to be on the beach front or located in a bure throughout the gardens.  Many of our returnee guests want to be accommodated overlooking water in the Beach Bures whilst the Island Bures are located amidst lush fragrant gardens and only a minute or two walk to the beach and main facilities.  Sometimes an Ocean View bure can be the perfect compromise.
