Thank you for the note Piper. And for all of your help. We had an AMAZING time. It was our best vacation ever. Hands down – the resort was everything you described and more. We had pretty high expectations going into it, and the resort/staff/guests surpassed all of our expectations. Eddie (Qamea Driver & Airport point of contact), was there to greet us, and whisked us off to the van/beach. All of the Qamea staff is absolutely great. We had heard how kind/sweet/genuine the native Fijians are, but they were all even better than expected. I was not expecting for all of them to know our names 90 minutes into our time on the island. All-in-all the accommodations were amazing. The food was as-advertised. All VERY GOOD. The excursions that we went on were all great. Their activity leader (Percy) is a blast. We went on the Bouma Falls hike, and the Lavena Coastal Walk. We also visited the village on our last day. We went on a few of the guided snorkel trips, and also were able to use the sea kayaks and the paddle boards.
Thank you for arranging Honeymoon beach picnic for us. It was a great afternoon. The goodbye song was pretty emotional. There were 12 of us leaving on our day. 4 in the morning, and 8 of us in the afternoon. Rosie’s lounge was a much-needed stop-over – thanks for including it! Although we were only in there for about 30 minutes. We were busy hanging out in the airport with the 10 other people that we met at Qamea. I was a little worried about the guests being pretentious, but everyone was great. there were 5-6 other honeymooning couples at the resort at any point while we were there. and everyone was very down-to-earth, friendly, and very genuine. The couple hours spent at the airport were a great way to say goodbye and hang out with our new friends.
As I said, Qamea was an amazing experience. There were so many high points. I can’t imagine a better location for our honeymoon. It was beyond our wildest dreams. Thank you so much for helping us have the perfect honeymoon.
Vinaka!! Geoff & Melissa

I’m not even sure where to begin, we literally had the Honeymoon of a lifetime!
Huge thanks to, Piper, our travel agent…who was literally with us every step of the way. From the moment we inquired about Fiji, to delayed flights, even a “Welcome Home” message. You have no idea how much your Get Ready Packet helped us out! We used that pen more than once when we were in a jam, one of our luggage tags broke so the ones you provided for us were a life-saver! Along with your personal insight to traveling (our legs thank-you for the tip about bugspray!) Your response to EVERY email was lightning-fast and jam-packed with any info you could come up with. Not to mention our afternoon on Honeymoon Beach that we enjoyed thanks to your generosity 🙂
& your feedback on Qamea was spot-on..it was paradise! The grounds alone are enough to fill pages describing its beauty…but then there’s their staff. Who from the moment we arrived to the second we left, waited on us hand-and-foot. But not only was their service superior, we also considered them friends by the time we left. Nothing we’ve ever experienced at any other Resort…Qamea has the feel of a close friend/family member opening their home and making you feel like you live there. We both agree that Fiji alone is one of the most gorgeous places we’ve ever visited; BUT that the staff multiplied our honeymoon bliss by a million!
We loved hanging out before/after dinner getting to know the other guests and having the freedom to be alone, enjoying paradise as newlyweds…or the option to mingle with other couples and experience Fiji up-close and personal.
It was the trip of a lifetime and absolutely a place we would love to re-visit…& hopefully stay even longer 😉
