Getting to Mana Island
Mana Island is located 30 kilometers west of Nadi.
Boat Transfers: To ensure safe passage of guests to the island, we have a strict compulsory transfer policy that all Ratu Kini guests must travel to the resort on the Ratu Kini Cruiser from Fantasy or South Sea Cruises from Port Denarau. Any other transfer must be pre-approved by Ratu Kini Reservation or you may lose your booking.
Ratu Kini Cruiser: The cruiser leaves Fantasy jetty at 9:30am and returns from Mana at 11:30am. The trip usually takes an hour each way and the rate is $180 (Fiji dollars) return per person. One way is $95 per person. We also offer free pick from Nadi resorts or the airport, as well as drop offs to the resort or the airport.
South Seas Cruise ferry: It leaves the port at 9am, 12 noon, and 3pm and the trip takes an hour and half after stopping at several resorts before arriving at Mana Island. One way is $128 per person and subject to change by the owners. At the Mana jetty, Ratu Kini is only a few minutes’ walk, to the right along the beach. Let us know your arrival time there and we can assist with your luggage. If your flight arrives to Fiji after 1pm please plan to stay the night in Nadi and catch the boat the next day. Earlier than that, you can take the South Seas Cruises ferry from Port Denarau at 12 noon or the last boat at 3pm. South Sea Cruises also provides free drop off to Port if you arrive in time.
