The Sapphire Bay Villa was everything we expected. The whole experience was enjoyable and this was not just because of the beautiful spacious villa, but also the helpful and friendly staff - Jope our driver and manager Ms Va. The villa is very well-appointed from a cooking, and sleeping point of view. Two master bedrooms with views across the bay and two other bedrooms that could potentially sleep another 8 people with two double beds in each. Staying in a peaceful secluded location means that shops, restaurants and entertainment are not very close. However Jope was always on hand to drive us to get groceries in Lautoka or to take us to the restaurants and beaches at Anchorage, 1st Landing or the Marina. It is possible to walk to these three places but returning in the dark after dinner it is advised to take a taxi. The charges for transport are very reasonable. The village of Viseisei is nearby and walkable via the road or the beach. While we were there we were invited to the local school fundraiser and enjoyed the hospitality and local cuisine and kava. The Fijian people are so welcoming.
Internet is expensive in Fiji and the speed of the connection was very slow. However it allowed us to have a respite from the usual 24/7 contact with the world. If you want an idyllic location with great views and space for entertaining and relaxation this is as good as it gets. We were in the middle villa of 3 and there was very little noise from the adjacent villas which were also booked during our stay. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Sapphire Bay Villas to anyone.
