Under new management, this resort has seen some notable improvements with more planned. The new owners are extremely pleasant people and keen to lift the profile of this resort. Wifi is now available and the mosquitoes have been dealt to in a big way! The bird life at this resort is absolutely fabulous and a well-kept secret. We stayed 2... More

We spent a few nights here while circumnavigating Viti Levu in a rental car and had a decent stay here. While the price per night was decent, it wasn't anything worth bragging about, considering some of the other, nicer accommodations that we managed to stay at for less, while on the island. Nonetheless, the place is nicely located: it's outside... More

Rainforest is in a marvelous location just outside of Suva. Best of all it is right across the rode to the wonderful eco park, Colo-i-Suva, which is a MUST do if you are going to be in or around Suva. We spent the entire day hiking and swimming in the most delicious springs, waterfalls and ponds! Heavenly! Now, Rainforest itself,... More

We basically stayed at Raintree because we met a few people on our travels in Fiji who recommended it. All of the, said that they booked dorm rooms and as the hotel was empty they were all upgraded to rooms over looking the pond. However, on our arrival we were not upgraded, not that we were expecting it but it... More

I have stayed here a number of times, it's very convenient for the Colo-i-Suva Forest Park and has helpful staff. The bures are spacious and clean, hot water was good and wifi available for a modest fee at the desk area. Restaurant has improved service and Ravi the desk clerk was very helpful. An ideal low-key place not far from... More

Even if this is a backpackers' lodge, I would have expected something better. I was scared the first time at dinner, when the chicken skewer contained pieces of almost raw chicken, and the second time when I almost stepped into the shower with a long-legged spider about the size of my palm. I just caught it in a cooking pan... More
