Testimonials

   We found the perfect refuge on Turtle Island, with its glorious white beaches, its lush green hills, and its miraculously blue lagoon. We also found new friends among the Fijian people, who welcomed us with a caring and disarming hospitality. We quickly developed a deep attachment to the island and its people, and have since returned with our family many times. It is a beautiful, special place. Read more Senator John S. McCain

Every day has been like a dream, and when I woke up in the morning that is when the real dreaming began. I want to thank you everyone on the island for making us feel welcome in their home and for making us feel like it is our home as well. I want to stay and experience this lifestyle for a year. Let us know when the island next to yours comes up for sale!! Gretchen, 2012

My wife and I returned from Turtle Island a few days ago. We had the privilege of being married here on February 29th. Now, to those of you reading this that are considering a romantic getaway… please allow me to paint you a picture. Private beach… not a soul anywhere around. Fresh lobster and champagne picnic. Soft sand… and the woman (or man) of your dreams laying beside you on the beach… well, I’m sure you know what happens after this. Trust me when I say that this experience was one of the highlights of our trip! Griff & Lynn, 2012

My wife and I went to Turtle Island for our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived in Nadi, we were completely taken care of. The flight to the island was a first for my wife and she loved it. Our arrival at the island set the tone for what we were about to experience. Welcome home. The staff was amazing. Our bure was gorgeous. The food was fantastic. The diving was incredible. The massages unbeatable. We could go on an on about it, and have, and continue to do so. We’ve spoken to family and friends who are all in when we go back. They too want to experience what we did. Turtle is a magical place. And the friends we made while on the island we keep in touch with still. Chris & Lindsay, 2012

We took away much more than pictures and memories from this trip. It was truly a life changing and eye opening experience for us. The Fijian people are the most gracious, friendly, caring and appreciative people on earth. Thank you for such a wonderful experience – without you this could not have happened! Alice, 2011

Turtle is such a wonderful experience, even Shakespeare could not put it into words. John, 2011

We absolutely LOVED Turtle Island! The wedding was wonderful and stress-free. All of our family and friends have commented on being jealous about our exotic location. I think one of the things that we liked the most, was the fact that we could just relax and everything was taken care of for us. Anything we needed or wanted was provided, even down to the vegetable fried rice and Singapore noodles that my hubby seemed to order every day! We are not used to being waited on, and with our jobs, this was really a treat. The people there were all so kind and welcoming as well. Honestly this was the best vacation we have ever had and we look forward to going back in a few years! Jennifer, 2011

Bev and I had a truly wonderful time. Turtle was wonderful, the staff was, the scenery was incredible, and we had a great experience and honeymoon. For me, getting up in the mornings and walking out to the ocean with fresh juice, watching the fish jump, and having nothing but the silence and the sky around me were some of my favorite moments. Beverly’s favorite times were the sunsets and the private beaches. Those just couldn’t be beat. Oh! The stars were incredible! So many and so clear! We were amazed to see the dusting of the Milky Way filling up a whole part of the sky. That was truly awesome. Ben, 2011

The island itself was gorgeous. That is a gross understatement, but I don’t know a word for the most beautiful place on Earth. The pictures I showed my family and friends from Fiji were so amazing they couldn’t believe it was real. It looks like a postcard. Sheila, 2011

Bula! Coming back to reality after Turtle Island was not an easy task. Jeremy and I are so blessed to have such an amazing honeymoon. What an awesome way to start off our marriage, with a trip to paradise. That is truly what Turtle Island was like… paradise! We will never forget the beauty of the island or the people we met there. We have already connected with staff and other guest and hope to keep in touch with our Turtle Island family for years to come! It was without question, the trip of a lifetime! Marlene & Jeremy, 2011

We’ve been telling people that literally the hardest decision we had to make on a daily basis was what we wanted for lunch. It doesn’t get much better than that! The private beaches were wonderful, and being able to walk barefoot was great… the views were breathtaking. There were times when we simply marveled at the beauty around us.

Every guest was treated special. The entire staff knows our first name and the love of the Fijian people will be in our hearts forever.
