Tubakula (pr: Toom-bah-koo-lah) is the ideal place for a casual and affordable beach vacation, and the only beachfront budget property in this area. Our location near the Outrigger on the Lagoon Resort gives the budget traveller the option of either a quiet relaxing holiday or access to a wide range of activities nearby. Recommended in both the latest editions of the Moon Handbooks Fiji and the Lonely Planet Fiji guide.
"... Tubakula is a quiet, do-your own-thing kind of a place.... Seated on your terrace watching the sky turn orange and purple behind the black silhouettes of the palms along the beach, a bucket of cold Fiji Bitter stubbies close at hand, you'd swear this is paradise! One of the most popular backpacker resorts in Fiji and well worth a couple of nights" (David Stanley, Moon Handbooks Fiji , Avalon Travel Publishing, 2004)
Tubakula is not just for backpackers ... it's for anyone wanting to relax and unwind—families, couples and singles of all ages will feel equally welcome in this peaceful and unhurried beach front setting.
