Accommodations are always well appointed with freshly renovated facilities that come with breathtaking views. Possibilities are endless with world class diving, four different superb restaurants, and an exclusive club just for kids. The abundantly friendly staff and slow pace of the island make it hard to part ways from this lavish piece of paradise.
Accommodations at Castaway Island always provide for an authentic experience with 65 exquisitely appointed bures amongst the lush South Pacific Island. All bures are detached and spacious – set up perfectly for breathtaking views and well-deserved privacy. You will find a serene king sized bed in all bures with two additional day beds on the other side of the privacy screen. Each is air-conditioned and have ceiling fans, verandas, and high vaulted ceiling. Bures also feature all standard amenities and freshly renovated bathrooms.

Freestanding with beautiful Fijian motifs and comfortable furnishings, all Island Bures are complimented by the lush tropical gardens, making for an exquisite Pacific experience.

The “one of a kind” Family Beachfront Bure is the ultimate spot for large families, with twice as much as room as the other bures on the island. This spacious home away from home connects two regular bures with an additional seating area and comes equipped with two king sized beds, six single beds, two bathrooms, and all the standard amenities. Beautifully situated on the North side of the Island, the bure is directly on the beach providing instant access at any hour of the day.
