Kadavu Island

Papageno Resort - Fiji Dive Resorts - Dive Discovery Fiji Islands

Papageno Resort is settled oceanfront on its vast and intriguing 320+ acre freehold property on the calm and protected Malawai Bay. The land and sea surrounding Papageno offer so much to explore, and, at the same time, so many places to relax in a tranquil paradise around the South Pacific Ocean. Our property hosts an extensive organic farm, an aquaponics system, two local waterfalls, a coconut oil production factory, and so much more.

The environment and staff of Papageno Resort have a genuine knack for creating the feeling that you're staying in your home away from home. Fijians are known to be some of the most warm-hearted people in the world and Kadavu Island is especially true to that claim with the tagline of Fiji's 'Traditional Isle'.

For stays three nights or more, all of our accommodation rates do include three full meals per day, unlimited use of ocean adventure equipment (kayaks, snorkeling gear, stand-up-paddleboarding, beach volleyball, and more), as well as roundtrip airport boat transfers from and to Kadvau Island's Vunisea Airport.

Fresh coffee and tea, tea time pastries, water, and organically sourced lemonade (sweetened & unsweetened) are available all-day and are complimentary for our guests. All bures, rooms, and suites include their own private bathroom with hot water. Thanks to our large solar system, we are able to keep the power on 24 hours for your convenience. We do have generator power in case of emergencies.

Papageno Resort is so lucky in the dive world in that there are over a dozen world-class dive sites within 20-minute boat ride from our shores. We invite you to take advantage of this location feat and jump in the water for a few tanks with our local dive masters. Our dive masters were born and raised in the villages surrounding these dive sites and know them extremely well. The home reef for Papageno Resort which is also a Marine Protected Area is called Rooper Reef. It hosts dive spots like Chambers, Crossroads, Group Tube and the one and only wreck dive on Kadavu Island: The Pacific Voyager. Sunk by some of our staff in 1994, a 63-meter long tanker, The Pacific Voyager, lays over 30 meters below the ocean’s surface. All over our local dives sites are host to a wide variety of fish, invertebrates, and nudibranchs.

Depths at our local dive sites range from 10 meters (30 feet) to 35 meters (115 feet). Our dive masters will choose the dive sites best suited for the conditions of the day. If you have a particular request of a spot you’d like to dive while you’re staying with us, please let us know ahead of time or upon arrival so that we may map out the best day and time to take you for the best experience possible. Don’t worry if you didn’t bring your dive gear, we have dive equipment available for rent for the length of your stay.
