Our Resort Report

Our Thoughts on Dolphin Island Private Island, Off North Viti Levu, Fiji
Located off North Viti Levu nestled between and sheltered by Nananu-i-Ra Island to the north-west and Nananu-i-Cake Island to the south-east, Dolphin Island is totally unique amongst Our Resort Islands in Fiji.

When you book accommodation at Dolphin Island, you get exclusive use of the whole island for as few as 2 people or as many as 8 people – there is never a person staying on Dolphin Island with you that you haven’t brought with you!  Dolphin Island is not altogether unique in this as several island resorts we deal with offer the opportunity to “charter” the whole island at a one-up price irrespective of the number of guests staying, but what sets Dolphin Island apart is the fact that they only accommodate between 2 and 8 guests and have a per-person nightly tariff for the exclusive use of either 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 guests. This means that 2 people can stay and have the whole island to themselves at a fraction of what it would normally cost to “charter” a complete Island Resort and every service is still available irrespective of the number of guests staying. Naturally, the overall per-person tariff decreases for each additional couple in your accompanying party.  If there are an uneven number of guests (say 3, 5 or 7), the exclusive use per person tariff changes to reflect the fact that 1 person will be utilizing a Bure designed for 2 people. (Something similar to a “single supplement”). 

The exclusive use tariff includes just about everything – absolutely top-class accommodation, gourmet meals, all standard drinks and the use of all island facilities, kayaks, Hobie catamaran and snorkelling equipment as well as ground transfers between the Nadi area and the Resort.

Then there is the Spa and massage service as well as the opportunity to have outside services “brought in” on request, such as the hire of Jet-skis, scuba diving, game fishing etc.  Add to this the romantic walking paths around and through the island and the totally wonderful Hilltop Sleep-out Bure to enjoy.

Dolphin Island Private Island provides a rare opportunity to indulge in the absolute best of everything Fiji has to offer in a private setting on a perfect little island surrounded by top-notch staff, services and facilities. Expensive? Yes, but not excessively so and we believe that for the standard of the facilities, the exclusivity and the inclusions in the tariff, Dolphin Island is superior value for such an idyllic experience.

Dolphin Island continues to win accolades from all over the world.

Your Accommodation Options
Four spacious Guest Bure Suites, each one with a generous 40m2 of interior space plus a 10m2 enclosed private courtyard off the bathroom and a wrap-around veranda and deck off the bedroom/living room. Furnishings and fittings reflect the very high standards of all The Huka Retreats properties with a genuine Fijian flavour.  There are 2 buildings, one on each side of the lounge, restaurant and pool complex, each housing two side-by-side Guest Bure Suites.

All accommodation is air-conditioned, but you hardly need it as the whole front of the Bure Suite opens up through floor to ceiling Bi-fold wooden shutters as does the complete back of the amazing bathroom which opens to the enclosed private courtyard thus providing complete flow-through ventilation.

The bathroom is spectacular.  Open the wide double doors between the bedroom and the bathroom and you immediately see what we mean, as right in front of you in the centre of the room is a large free standing bathtub.  While luxuriating in this bathtub you enjoy a view through the lounge/bedroom to the lawn and the beach and the sea beyond. There are 2 vanity units – one on each side of the room, a separate shower and separate toilet.  Open the Bi-fold doors into the private enclosed garden courtyard and the outdoor shower. 

Out front, the veranda wraps around two sides and provides guests with a place to relax and take in the special views out over the sea to the mainland and the neighbouring islands.

A minimum 3 nights stay is required at Dolphin Island.
