Many of our return guests consider it their second home. We’ve been lucky enough to be the recipient of many awards – one being mentioned as a Top 10 Fiji Resort for Families.

When you’ve been to Castaway once you’ll understand why so many families return. There’s something for every age to do. The stylish family accommodation, great meal deals, kids club and water activities covers everything you need to ensure one of the best Fiji family holidays you’ll ever have.

Castaway has been hosting families for close to 50 years now. Some of our lovely return guests say we’ve perfected the Fiji island holiday experience:) We humbly say we simply try to do our very best to ensure your family holiday is everything you dreamed it would be.

Family Accommodation – Traditional Fiji Accommodation in a Bure (Bungalow)

Fiji Accommodation consists of traditional thatched roof bures (bungalows). The island has four different types of bures scattered throughout the resort. Beach, Island, Garden and Family. The family bures are specifically for larger families who need a little extra space. They can sleep up to 10 people. Click to view the bure accommodation and floor plans of the bures.

Family meal times on Castaway are the most relaxing meal times you’ll ever experience! Dinner time on Castaway starts from 5.30pm at the Water’s edge restaurant and the kiddies can simply wander up to the buffet and choose from a huge variety of ‘kid friendly’ food. We find the routine is either Mum or Dad arrive with them and have a relaxing drink while they watch the little ones eat. After dinner the kiddies scuttle off to kids club with their baby sitter or, age permitting, on their own to meet up with their island friends ready for crab hunting and other fun night games. Mum and Dad then enjoy a beautiful dinner together under the stars until it is ready to pick up the kiddies after dinner. Some nights you’ll find fun activities happening at around 9.00 that all the family can enjoy. Throughout different times of the year we have on offer our famous “Meal Deal”.

Kids Club

Best Kids Club in Fiji Doing Meke on Castaway Island Fiji

Dressed up for the Meke!

Imagine a Kid’s club that’s open from 9.00am until 10.00pm EVERY day with only a few breaks in between? Wouldn’t that be awesome for the kids and for Mum and Dad?

Castaway Kid’s Club makes sure the family holiday is relaxing and fun for everyone. Children enjoy all sorts of fun island discoveries with an emphasis on nature-based play – not an X-Box in sight! Kids over 3 years of age can attend the kids club on their own and will be well looked after by our legendary kids club team members. They’ll be immersed in fun games – both traditionally Fijian and modern day games to ensure they’re kept entertained and happy every minute.

The Fijians love of children is legendary and you can be assured your children will be well cared for by your Castaway family. They’ll enjoy games like poison ball, traffic lights and icecream eating competitions plus of course more island-based play like crab hunting, snorkeling lessons and getting dressed up for the torch lighting ceremony & lali drum playing. A set programme is followed but of course can vary depending on what the kids vote to do! But don’t worry Mums and Dads – the icecream eating competition is only once a week:)  Read more about our legendary Castaway Fiji kids club.
