There are two pool areas, one meant for adults with a jacuzzi and a swimup bar, and the other being a family pool. Sometimes despite staff doing their best, children end up in the 'adults' pool due to parents giving them a little too much free reign.


Castaway Resort Fiji is one of the longest standing family resorts in Fiji, and a reputation to match. The kids club is excellent and the kiddies will be kept entertained all day and into the evening, the supervised times being 9:00am to 4:30pm and then from 6.30pm to 10:00pm daily.

The children will enjoy a range of games, activities, and entertainment with Fijian cultural elements included. And the best part... it's free!


Qalito, otherwise known as Castaway Island, is an inhabited reef-fringed island in the Mamanuca group. The 70-hectare (174 acres) is situated 20km from Nadi International Airport.

Getting There

Firstly, you need to catch an international flight to Nadi International Airport in Fiji. Then you need a transfer:

Air - There are two options here both taking around 10 minutes. One is by seaplane with Pacific Island Seaplanes and the other is by helicopter with Island Hoppers. Seeing Fiji, especially the Mamanucas, from the air is quite something.

Sea - Again you have two options. One with South Sea Cruises, which takes around 90 minutes, on one of it's 150-seat split deck catamarans with thrice daily trips to and from Denarau Marina. The other is a much quicker trip with your own personal water taxi with Mamanuca Express.

All transfer details are found on our Transport in Fiji section.


Rates are per bure per night. They range from FJ$900 to $1,150 depending on the proximity to beach. The big family bure is $2,400. There is a 20% government tax on top. (currency converter)

Included in the rates are non-motorised activities and tennis.
