Just beautiful

Great space and the grounds are just beautiful, sharing the ocean view that the resort have without the price tag. We had the smaller room which was fine, the newer room is definitely nicer if you want to pay the extra $25 night for the whole space.

The caretakers were lovely and Suneeta's food was tasty. One point to note is that you will have to take taxi's into town or to other locations which tended to be about $7 USD each way. Tuk Tuk the dog is also amazing.

SigaSiga is a great location

SigaSiga is a great location for a first Fiji experience. The place is really big, offering loads of space for walk & play with the kids. It has many goats and a couple of adorable dogs following you everywhere you go. You can kayak in the lagoon at high tide or simply walk in it at low tide. It is quiet and secluded but yet, only 12 mins drive from SavuSavu town where one can do shopping as well as finding a handful of restaurant and coffeeshop.

The SigaSiga staff is always available and they constantly go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible! The bure was clean, we had AC in a room which felt like luxury and was perfect for our 1yo who struggled a bit adjusting to the Fijian heat. The kitchen is very well equipped and you have everything you need. There are also several hundreds of DVDs available at the reception which was awesome in a rainy day!

If you have kids, we recommend spending a day at a nearby resort Coro Sun which offers a kids pool with a big slide. It’s only 2 mins drive from SigaSiga. Our only regret is to not have met Gene himself as he was travelling abroad during our stay... but the service we received was nevertheless outstanding!

Amazing stay at SigaSiga Sands Resort

We had an amazing stay at SigaSiga Sands Resort over the last 10 nights. We were very sad to leave the place! We originally chose SigaSiga because the price was right, but we got so much more than we bargained for. The people were fantastic - Gene is an excellent host/manager who is happy to help with anything you might ask for. He's up for a chat, very knowledgeable about the island, easy-going, and usually laughing!

The caretakers are a lovely Fijian husband and wife duo who live at the back of the property. If you choose SigaSiga, you must order food from Sunita! She is an incredible cook and herself or Subash will bring the food hot to your door at whatever time you request. They also bring fresh coconuts with the tops cut off for you to drink out of and then eat the flesh with a spoon! The curry dahl is amazing, and all of this is super cost effective. We ordered twice a day, every day. If you preferred to cook yourself, the kitchen is fine to use as well - we personally left it to the masters. The kitchen was separate to our bure, but only by about 1 metre.

Our bure was a good size with a comfy bed, relaxing recliner lounge chair, and a decent sized shower and vanity area. It was very comfortable to stay in - even for a long period of time. All of the bures are different styles, which is pretty neat! Make friends with the other guests and check them out. We had outdoor on the furniture on the deck where we could eat our meals every day, and a hammock slung across the deck as well where Gene will enforce a strict "hammock time every day" policy ;) there are also some hammocks right by the sand so that you can listen to the soothing sounds of the water while you get your quota...

The beach was lovely as well - private, big fluctuations between high and low tide, no waves. Easy to walk along and goes for quite some distance. The lagoon described is fantastic to swim in if you're looking for some deeper water! The resort has a beautiful white dog named Tuktuk who will accompany you along the beach, all the way to the lagoon, and wait for you on the shore while you have a swim. She is incredibly friendly and loves company. The property itself was also beautiful - grass everywhere, palm trees with coconuts, flowers, and a neat dirt/grass road back to the main tar road. Because there aren't many bures, it's very quiet and relaxing here. A real secluded escape. However, if you're looking for people, Savusavu town is only a 15 minute ($14FJD) taxi ride away, and Gene will give you all the contacts you need to summon a taxi with your bure's phone. Gene is also happy to help you organise visits to nearby activities such as villages,...

Fantastic snorkeling, quiet beach and beautiful hiking trails

Great location! Tucked away in a beautiful cove with fantastic snorkeling, quiet beach, and beautiful hiking trails right outside of town. Easy access to savusavu town and all it has to offer. Friendly staff who are eager to make your stay comfortable. All in all great experience and we would highly recommend the SigaSiga to anyone who enjoys comfortable independent travel.

Private beach and sunshine

It was hard to believe that it was my best trip! We are here to enjoy the disturbed private beach and sunshine. This place has a lovely little dog Duduk, some friendly french friends and a hospitality landlord Gene. It was a pleasure to stay here for only three days. If you can really want to continue this journey indefinitely. If there is a chance, the next time I will choose to come here to enjoy a wonderful the same time, also welcome Gene and his friends to travel to China! Please be sure to contact me at this time.

Response by Gene (October 2017)

Bula Takehisa! Thank you so much for your kind words. We really appreciate hearing from you. We love to share our island lifestyle and work hard to make it all look easy to present what we have for your enjoyment. I know you meant to say "undisturbed private beach" :-) Haha Your english is really quite good and I appreciate you writing me. Tuktuk says "Bula!" and she misses you! really! heehee

Take care, Gene

SigaSiga Sands really is the ultimate paradise

We stayed for two weeks and it was so relaxing and wonderful. The property is right on a beautiful beach with a perfect lagoon to swim in just minutes away. The snorkeling right off the beach is perfect and the reef is incredible. Gene and his staff are so helpful in answering questions and they keep the grounds gorgeous. The bure itself it very comfortable and has a gorgeous ocean view.

Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook and fresh, filtered drinking water so you dont have to spend any money or create waste buying bottled water. If you dont feel like cooking, there is a great menu of Fijian cuisine that can be delivered to your door. If you are looking for a more peaceful and local vibe than a resort then this is your place. It is secluded but easy and convenient to get to town. We would 100% stay here again and recommend it as an incredible place to stay.

SigaSiga sands is quite literally paradise!

You are right on the beach, with the rainforest on the other side. You fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the sea and birdsong. The rock pools and snorkelling directly outside of the accommodation are superb, and the swimming lagoon down the beach is lovely. All of the accommodation at SigaSiga are beautiful, and when we were there, freshly renovated. Gene and his team are so welcoming and hospitable - make sure you try Sunita's food - it's incredible! We thoroughly recommend staying here.

Paradise at your door step

We stayed at the newest bure at SigaSiga. It is quite literally paradise at your door step. Our favorite part of the stay was the laid back and peaceful vibe of the property. We also enjoyed the company of Tuk-Tuk, the very well behaved canine ambassador who accompanied us to the beach swimming lagoon. We also really enjoyed the curries that Sunita prepared (the pumpkin curry and chicken lolo were our favorites). The kitchen is adequate for self catering when buying produce at the local farmers market in Savusavu (highly recommended). All in all Gene, Sunita, and Sabash were very informative and great hosts. I highly recommend that you consider staying here.

Response by Gene (August 2017)

Bula Mark!

Thanks for taking the time to tell everyone about your experience here in The Ultimate Paradise (our company name :-)). Your comment about the "peaceful vibe of the property" reminds me of a couple other similar comments I've heard. Locals have said how it seems that whatever problems or concerns they may have been feeling when they arrived just melt away.

The history of this 116 ac property has been clean and pure with venerable well-established family ownership for most of its 100 year plus titled existence. The first freehold title here was established in 1892 and all has been good ever since as far as we know. We hope to see you again soon. Happy Trails wherever they may take you!

Cheers! Gene
