Concierge.com's insider take:
This island advertises itself as the last resort, and sitting at the most northernmost point of the archipelago, it is. Remote Nukubati has an authenticity that all the others lack: The resort is owned by Fijians. They've decorated seven cottages in simple plantation style, with rattan furniture, ceiling fans, and big open windows to catch the breeze. There is little to distract from the setting, apart from exceptional snorkeling and diving in the nearby Great Sea Reef and General Manager Gordon Leewai, who treats guests like members of the family. He even invites them to dinner or to birthday parties on the main island with his own family, giving a rare insight into Fijian society.
