    Hi all,

    I am looking at Uprising Beach Resort at Pacific Harbour, Fiji, which is close to Beqa Lagoon.

    I have found plenty of info on the awesome shark diving at Beqa, but haven't found much on Uprising Beach Resort. I think its a fairly new resort. Have any of you stayed there, and would you recommend it? :questionmark:

    Thanks

    (PS: I have found a few reviews on trip advisor, of which nearly all are excellent, but would like divers' opinions also)

    Hey Orange,

    Check out my post "Fiji Trip Report Dec 08".

    I stayed there and I was very impressed, excellent staff, good food, large clean dorm, let me keep my dive bag in reception which was manned 24/7..i would definitely recommend it!

    Also did the shark dive with AquaTrek, saw 2 Tiger sharks on the 1st dive (one 14ft pregnant) and many Bulls on the 2nd dive, a lot came within 2 feet of me...the DM let me sit right next to him (bc I had a camera) as he emptied fish out of a wheelie bin.

    If you need any more info just ask..

    Uprising Resort is probably one of the hidden jewels of Fiji. They bill themselves as a backpacker resort but it is anything but. They do have a dormitory, but the individual bures are roomy and are really close to the beach. Pacific Harbor has probably the best beach in Fiji - very long and sandy. Depending on the time of year the surf can get pretty big. the only shortcoming that Uprising has (IMHO) is that they do not offer a meal plan. The restaurant scene in PH is pretty limited. Uprising food is good, it's just ala carte.
