A magnificent starlit setting at the water's edge is enhanced by the music and songs of the "Castaway Islanders" with their acoustic guitars and island style bass. Covered breeze-conditioned dining in our "Bure ni Vutu", (bure beside the Vutu tree), is adjacent to our water's edge terrace. The restaurant is our main resort dining venue and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Nuku Marau Pool Bar & Grill: The Nuku Marau Pool Bar and Grill opened in December 2011 and adds another beautiful pool area to Castaway Island, Fiji. It includes custom-made Fijian-inspired water features and a dining area with sand underfoot. The depth of the pool is perfect for little ones to paddle around while Mum and Dad relax in a pool lounge close by. A water fountain and the custom-built Fijian 'waterfall' feature adds to pool fun and games. Adjacent to the pool is the grill and bar where a variety of drinks and food can be bought.
The Sundowner Bar & Grill: Our Italian style gourmet wood fired pizzas featuring a thin, crisp base and delicious topping alternatives are offered at our Sundowner Bar. The Sundowner Bar is now open from breakfast night time. You can enjoy amazing breakfast pizzas, all day drinks and gourmet wood fired pizzas at night. We also have a designated happy hour. We encourage a child free environment in the evenings and for families with children there is the KID'S CLUB and a babysitting service available. The Sundowner also provides boxed take away pizzas, perfect for a romantic sunset picnic on the beach or a casual family picnic.
Lali Sandbar: The Lali Sandbar & Grill concept was in itself built to answer the growing feedback from guests to have a truly unique outdoor Fijian dining experience with loads of variety that is healthy and delicious using local organic ingredients. Our chef has devised an incredible menu concept based around the fusion of Chinese and Fijian cuisine – where food is considered medicine. Sourced from the many organic farms throughout Fiji, including Castaway Island's herb farm, the tropical fruits, peels, nuts, herbs and vegetables in this menu are classed as superfoods because of their high, nutrient-dense and medicinal compounds.

Marriage under Fijian law involves two parts. The first part is the registration of the intent to marry with the Registry office in Nadi. The office is open from 9.00am - 3.00pm Monday to Friday, and the appointment will take approximately 20 minutes. Castaway Island will try to organise an appointment for the bride and groom in the Nadi Registry Office on the first or second day of arrival in Fiji. This will allow for the completion of the Fijian Registry requirements before coming to the Island for the marriage service.
The second part is a religious ceremony to be held on Castaway Island. Usually the ceremony takes place at sunset on the jetty adjacent to the dining terrace. A minister would be available prior to the wedding to discuss the wording used in the ceremony. See Instant Quote for Wedding Costs.
