I stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms are nice and they all face the water. Cleanliness is hit and miss but acceptable overall. There is only one channel on the TV but who cares, it's about enjoying the ocean breeze anyways. the wifi only truly works in the lobby. The food was pretty decent, make sure to ask for... More

We stayed 10 days at the Garden Island Resort with a large group of divers which was our main reason for being at this particular resort. It's close to some amazing dive sites and the resort was well equipped with boats, equipment and very good dive masters. Overall the resort was an amazing value - the food choices were good,...

This was the final, 3rd leg of our trip in Fiji (see 1st - Voli Voli Resort, 2nd - Tropica Island Resort). Tavenui, Fiji was chosen because of the dive sites close to this resort, SomoSomo Strait, Great white wall, and Rainbow reef. This resort is the closest to all these dive sites about 10mins. The other resorts take longer... More

I have stayed here several times when visiting family in the nearby village. I have only used the hotel to sleep and for the occasional meal so I can not comment extensively on the food but I found the selection sufficient and the food well cooked. There is no beach but the other guests on my stays have always been... More

It was ok, but something were missing. I think the only think I really enjoyed was the fancy shower, other than that.. nothing much really. The air conditioning report never works so it was freezing cold at night, the shampoo and conditioner was put in tea cups. I thought the previous ions guest left their coffee there until I teared...

Our group of 4 thoroughly loved our time at Garden Island Resort. Our rooms were very comfortable, spacious and most important the shower always had plenty of hot water. There is no beach but the areas outside the rooms had hammocks or lounge chairs for relaxing in the afternoon. Food was exceptional and staff did a great job of working... More

There are more expensive and out of they way places to stay on Taveuni, but no place can boast the friendly family atmosphere and great somsomo straits view and diving than the Garden Inn. Centrally located on the island, easy and quick dive trips to the Rainbow reef. Take kayak to the coastal island explore your own bat cave and... More

Came of a diving (group) trip and was greeted by staff welcoming us in song! All the staff knew, used and remembered our names the whole 11 days. Food was superb. I would like to thank Eta, Maria, Nanni, Tracy and Colletta and all the rest for a wonderfully enjoyable time. The staff treat you like family. Super cozy beds,... More

We went to Fiji for a one week trip and we had absolutely great holiday. The resort is very nice with excellent services, great food and friendly staff. Even if it is off-season in February there, weather was fantastic with very little rain and almost no wind. We are very keen divers, we spent most of our time in the... More

Garden Island treats you like family. Everyone there is super friendly and wanting to accommodate you in any way possible.Rooms were nice, fresh flowers left every day in your room. Food was good. Owner is on the premises. This may have something to do with how nice everyone is. One drawback - there is no beach although lounges and hammocks... More
