“We have had an incredible honeymoon. We stayed at two other five star resorts in Fiji, one that cost over US$2,000 a night, prior to arriving here. Haadyaooverbay has exceeded both resorts on every level. The views here are spectacular, the food is better than any restaurant in the US, the villa is beautiful and the staff are the kindest, warmest and most hospitable people we have ever met. Kelly – thank you again for all of your help. I realize that you go out of your way to make everything really special. We truly appreciated all the little extras. We are so pleased that we chose Haadyaooverbay. We will definitely be back and will be telling everyone that Haadyaooverbay is the best resort in all of Fiji .

“WOW!!! Everything is amazing! The scenery, setting, the views, the food (I think I gained 10 pounds) and of course the people are the best. We came here on our honeymoon wanting a private, peaceful and beautiful place and we got it. This place is unexplainable and we keep taking pictures to try and explain to our friends and family back home. It is even more beautiful than the website. Every chance we had we would just sit on the deck and just take it all in, breathe the fresh air, listen to the waves and take mental pictures of the view. This was our first vacation as a married couple and we have promised ourselves to come back again. Thank you all so much!
Love Patrick and Cynthia”

“Dear Haadyaooverbay, We will be forever indebted to you for gracious and friendly care which has given us memories that will span a lifetime and will always bring smiles to our lips. It was truly an honour to experience such friendship and service. You have the ingredients of perfection that has left an incredible taste in our mouths. Our hearts are in Fiji and with you all”.

“We could not have had a more perfect wedding day. The effort that went into preparing the villa, grounds and arch was beyond all of our expectations. Watching all the preparations and the beautiful result was the perfect lead up to the wedding. We have enjoyed every minute of our stay. From the ultimate privacy, to the relaxation, to the amazing food and wonderful service – everything was been first class. Thank you to everyone. You will all be in our hearts forever.”

“Words can not begin to describe the week we have had. What a fabulous place to have a family holiday!!! Our eyes and hearts have been opened to the beautiful, warm and friendly people of Fiji . We were welcomed like family and leave today with new genuine friends that we will love and cherish forever. The nanny Rosa took such amazing care of my children. Trevor and I could kayak, dive, hike and relax while the children were having the most wonderful time. They built sandcastles on the beach, swam in the pool, did arts and crafts and baked cookies and banana muffins. I felt completely at ease knowing that they were in such good hands while we were also enjoying a vacation. We found we had the perfect balance of time to ourselves and also having family time in the evenings. The chefs did an amazing job catering to all of our requests and I have to say that the food is the best we have ever had. I loved the villa and the privacy with our own pool and beach. We will definitely be back and will look forward to seeing “our Fiji family” upon our return.”

“Where do we begin… spending our honeymoon here has been an extraordinary start to our lives together. The views are magical and the sunsets are breathtaking. We will remember each day with such fond memories of the amazing food and fabulous staff. We enjoyed all of the activities and the music at the Sunday mass we went to was the most beautiful sound we have ever heard in our entire lives. It is something that should be experienced by all when they come to Haadyaooverbay.

The special touches everyday around every corner were so special. The flowers and candles with the meals, having the table set differently every time we dined, and the flowers in the villa, and at turn down. The entire staff was so thoughtful and so pampering. The snorkeling was incredible! I wish we had booked more time so we could kayak more and explore.” Vinaka Vaka Levu until next time.

“Mike and I are very sad to leave such a beautiful place and such wonderful people. You have all made our honeymoon so much better than I could ever have imagined. It was perfect! You have all touched us with your kindness and I hope you know how much it is appreciated. Thank you so much and we wish you all many more years of creating wonderful honeymoons. You think about everything, even the tiniest of details and that is what makes this experience so wonderful and why it stands out from the rest.
Warmest regards,

“We are not honeymooners (too late, too tired, too old) but we are seasoned travellers and travel the world several times a year. Haadyaooverbay would have to be the best place we have ever stayed at. The villa is spectacular, the weather superb, the meals are as good as the best restaurants around the world, and the service is second to none. I have to say though that it is the staffs sincerity and warmth that we have appreciated the most. Nothing is too much for them and everything they do is done with such genuine kindness and love. Thank you Haadyaooverbay for sharing such a special place with us. Vinaka”.

“To the staff at Haadyaooverbay,
You have made our wedding and honeymoon the greatest enjoyment and best experience of our entire lives. We are so grateful for all the wonderful service and more thankful that we were accepted immediately as friends as well as guests. Our wedding day will be most memorable with the heavenly arch and the flowers that one could only dream of. We will never forget the splendour of the beauty that surrounded us during our stay. We could go on and on complimenting the incredible food, staff, service, grounds and villa but it has to be said that Haadyaooverbay is one of a kind. We thank you Tony and Kelly for this heavenly once in a lifetime experience.”

Thank you is simply inadequate. One of the first things we felt, after we absorbed the overwhelming beauty around us, was the focus on comfort.

“A most magical location,where dreams come true. The light, the views, the most special of welcomes and attention. The food was copious, always wonderfully presented and exotic. The care and though that has gone into the villa’s is wonderful”
Mark Holland

“It was so stressful everyday to decide what to eat for breakfast and lunch and where to eat – the bula deck, the house deck or the pool deck and what bula drinks to have – “decisions, decisions” – and where and when to snorkel amongst the beautiful coral – whether or not to take out the kayak – or should we swim, take a nap or read –“decisions, decisions” – whether to scuba dive or to enjoy the beautiful ocean view or the gardens – “decisions, decisions”… You made us feel so welcome and cared for. This vacation exceeded ALL of our expectations.

Thanks again for making our honeymoon so perfect and magical, we will never forget a single minute that we spent there — the gorgeous sunsets, the amazingly attentive staff, the unlimited privacy, the activities, the village visits with the kids dancing, the best food we ever had in our entire lives!
Ayesha and Faiz

Our experience at Haadyaooverbay has been second to none! We could go on and on about the experience, excellent staff, spectacular surroundings, the beautiful villa or the outstanding food, but the truly most enjoyable part of our honeymoon were the friendships we made with you, Kelly and Tony, Bill and Cadia and all of your team!! We cannot wait to come back! Haadyaooverbay has provided us with the perfect honeymoon experience.
