There's a handful of mid-range accommodation in town. The nicest resorts, though, are out of town.

On the point, Point Lesiaceva (5km south-west), with Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort, on the south coast around 7km south-west with Namale Resort & Spa and Koro Sun Resort, and then about 10km along and across to the north coast is Lomalagi Resort.

It's a bit tricky to spot on the map above. You need to zoom-in to when the distance key on the bottom left is 1,000ft/500m, before all 4 resorts appear.
