4.6/5 Wonderful! (11 reviews)
My wife and I ventured to Sau Bay around the 20th of June, shortly after it opened. At a high level, we give the place 6 out of 5 stars! At the top of our experience was the incredible staff that greeted us and took care of us throughout our 5-day stay. We had previously spent a couple of weeks at some other resorts in the Mamanuca islands, and while those were also great, Sau Bay stood head and shoulders above them in terms of service, privacy, and overall experience.
Sau Bay is a small resort with only a few cottages. It never feels crowded and during our stay the staff outnumbered the guests by about 2 to 1!
By the time we left the staff felt like family. Eunice, Sara, William, Carl, Letu, John and little John banded together to give us an experience we won’t forget.
Sara took care of making sure we had great dining experiences and also gave us fantastic seaside massages along with herbal therapy to help me ease my sinuses (from a head cold, which unfortunately kept me from diving).
Carl and Letu took care of our boat transportation from the island of Taveuni, and also led us on our snorkeling expedition on the rainbow reef. Having snorkeled and dived many locations around the tropics since the 80’s, I can say this was right up there with some of best, unlike some of the locations where much of the coral is dead and the fish are no longer abundant. We also did some snorkeling on the house reef. My recommendation for snorkeling right near the resort is to take a kayak
