Meet the Qamea Team
Nina Holmes – Sales and Marketing Manager
Favourite Thing About Qamea: The resort staff! I have never encountered such beautiful, happy, helpful and genuinely loving people. It feels like a family, and guests feel part of it from the moment their feet touch our divine white sands.
Must Do or See: Well I’m torn. Either the facials at the day spa – my favourite is the liftosome. Or ‘Meke’ which is the Fijian dance night. Both amazing! Gotta love a conga line!
Favourite Food: hands down the lobster. WOW! And funnily enough, eggs on toast. The best cooked eggs ever! It’s the small things in life that make one happy
Advice for Anyone Visiting Qamea: simply breathe and relax. Use every moment to discover something even more beautiful than you noticed a moment before… And cocktails! Life on an island resort just isn’t complete without a pina colada or two!
Lars Wahlquist and Krista Espelien – Resort General Managers
Favourite Thing About Qamea: Aside from working with our incredible staff, we love the island itself! Beautiful birds, stunning trees – your senses will be in overdrive!
Must Do or See: Definitely the Waterfall Trek. Walking through the luscious jungle and then rewarded with a refreshing swim at the beautiful falls. Also, give a yoga class a go – you will never have a more beautiful yoga space than what we have at Qamea.
Favourite Food: Lars votes for the creamy, freshly-made gnocchi, and Krista loves all the different soups at Qamea.
Advice for anyone visiting Qamea: Sit with the local band members in the evening, share some kava and listen to some great stories which go along with their beautiful music!
Adrian “Bev” Bebbington & Renee Tapsell – Resort Dive Centre Managers
Favourite Thing About Qamea: Other than exploring the underwater world, it would be the flora and fauna of Qamea it truly is a natural beauty.
Must Do or See: A dive charter to Rainbow reef is a must! Not only is it fantastic diving, but it’s also a great day out with lunch on a beautiful beach.
Food: Bev Loves the Fijian curries and Renee’s favourite is the wood-fire pizzas with extra olives.
Advice for Anyone Visiting Qamea: Don’t forget your camera! You will capture moments here that will take your breath away.
Lusia Wakoloilagi Colaudolu – Assistant Manager
Favourite Thing About Qamea: It is home and with guests from all over the world coming here, it is like I am on a world tour everyday! I learn new things about people and places where they come from plus the other places they have been – depending on what takes them there – sometimes work or just having a holiday.
Must Do or See: Dive if you a diver or learn to dive if you have not tried diving – we have the best spots in the world! Secondly Village Tour to experience firsthand the people and what Fiji Time is all about.
Favourite Food: Fish anyway it is done – it is so fresh!
Advice for Anyone Visiting Qamea: When packing make sure you mix pack – his clothes in her suitcase and vice versa! This way it saves the hassle of one having nothing when one bag does not arrive. Secondly jandles (flip flops as we call them in Fiji) is a must.
