Turtle Lair sits on the ridge above the resort and from its private deck it has one of the best views in Fiji. It is the largest bure on the property and the most private but you have to earn your privacy by climbing up the steep staircase from the main lodge. A large Indonesian style bed stands in the middle of the room with an en suite bathroom behind it. A bamboo-enclosed outdoor shower with plenty of hot water is attached to the bure. Some guests have opted to stay inside the bure for most of their time at Oneta, only emerging when the sound of the conch shell or the lali drum calls them down for dinner.
Vesi and Shark Alley are the two beachfront bures and they are just short walk from the main lodge. Vesi (also a namesake of a native tree) is larger and has beautiful polished mahogany floors. Shark Alley is a bit smaller but lies closer to the water. Both have high-pitched soga palm roofs and small private decks that look towards the beach. They are shaded by greenery and fruit trees but have a clear view of the ocean that is only a short distance away. Each of these bures has an en suite bathroom and a bamboo-enclosed outdoor shower with plenty of hot water. Sit on your porch and enjoy an afternoon drink as you count the fish jumping in the ocean. –
Split Rock and Purple Wall, our two garden bures, are set back among the fruit trees and flowering shrubs of the garden. They are a little further back from the beach but certainly have their own charm and privacy. They also have king beds, en suite bathrooms and the outdoor bamboo-enclosed shower with hot and cold water. Take a couple of steps to the nearest mango or papaya tree (when they are in season) to pick your fresh snack. Or walk up to the main lodge where the staff will have your fresh coconut and sliced mango and papaya waiting for you. – MORE PHOTOS OF THE GARDEN BURES >
Archway is designed to accommodate larger groups that want to stay together in the same room. Larger families choose this bure or fishermen that prefer to stay together. It also may be a more cost-effective way to stay at Oneta for a group. The rates for this bure are per person with a minimum of three people needed to book it. Archway is quite spacious and features six single beds separated by hanging bamboo mats that give a little privacy to each person. It has a large en suite bathroom and two outdoor bamboo enclosed showers with lots of hot and cold water.
All bures are well appointed with quality European sheets, fine cotton Turkish peshtemel towels, and all natural bathroom products. All rooms have quiet three-speed ceiling fans, but please note there is no air conditioning anywhere on the island. Also please note that all electricity at the resort is 110 volt with U.S. style plugs and we have universal adapters for those that need them.
