My husband and I recently spent 10 nights at Garden Island Resort on a diving package. From the moment we arrived to the day we left the staff could not have been nicer. They took the trouble to remember our names and went out of their way to be helpful. The new manager was very friendly and showed care for...

We were here 8 years ago and again for the last week (March 2017). It was great then and it is still great! The rooms and bathrooms have been updated since last year's devastating Cyclone Winston. The food is excellent and the staff are helpful, friendly, and bend over backwards to please. The dive shop personnel are outstanding and take...

We spent 3 weeks at this lovely resort. Our primary purpose of our trip was scuba diving. The dive shop is attached to the resort. Our dive masters, Ane and Leo were fantastic. With the typhoon only a year ago much of the hotel and island were damaged. Reconstruction is ongoing but the resort has done very well. The dive...

The dive shop at this hotel is outstanding. We felt priviledged to have Leo and Annie as our dive masters. They have been diving this area for decades and know the sites and currents. Leo was especially patient with a novice diver. Annie is THE Annie of Annie's Bommie site. We thoroughly enjoyed all 20 dives at Rainbow Reef. The...

This is a nice and clean place to stay with beautiful view. The price is relatively reasonnable. The rooms are clean, breakfast was simple but ok. You can even have pizza for dinner but you have to place an order in advance :)

I had dinner with my partner on the occasion of her birthday at this fabulous resort on the island of Taveuni in Fiji. Although not staying at this resort we wandered down the road (having booked earlier in the day) to be met by the owner, offered a welcoming beverage and then escorted to our table. A wonderful three course...

I stayed here for two weeks while diving the Rainbow Reef, which was a 15-minute boat ride from the resort. The reef lived up to its name, having a spectrum of colors in the soft corals and an abundance of sea life, including sharks and a manta ray. Waking up each morning to the sight and sounds of the ocean...
