What we love about Castaway

The returnees can’t be wrong. And they are not.  Castaway is a place where you will instantly feel at home.  Castaway has changed and evolved to keep up with  guests’ changing needs but is still the same as it was 50 years ago.  Its charm is real.  Its beaches still white, its water still refreshing.   The Castaway staff, your very own Fijian Vuvale will greet you with a true Fijian welcome, sung for years and years to their many, many returning and new guests.   It really is truly like returning home.
