From the charming welcome song to the view of blue sea through the coconut palms it is difficult to criticise this lovely hotel. I was part of an organised bird-watching party who experienced excellent service from quietly friendly staff. Our room was clean and comfortable and all the food was well presented and tasty. The management are to congratulated on... More

i need to preface this review by saying that i mistakenly first posted this review under the Taveuni Dive Resort heading. The owner of TDR was kind enough to bring it to my attention, so kudos to him/her. Just another example of the goodness of the Fijian people. My wife and i had a wonderful experience with every aspect of... More

I've been remiss in submitting my review of our visit to the taveuni dive resort during the first week in November with a group of fellow divers from Colorado. Call it procrastination or Fiji hangover. My wife and I had a wonderful experience with every aspect of our time at TDR. John picked our group up at the airport and... More

This was our third trip to Taveuni and our second time at Garden Island Resort. The resort is a perfect place to stay if you are in Taveuni to dive. Located directly across from the Rainbow Reef (some of the finest diving in Fiji), the boat rides are short compared to those from the resorts at the northern or southern... More

I went with a group of 30 divers. There are only 30 rooms so we had occupied half the resort. Each room is interconnected so if you want a romantic getaway you may want to choose a different resort for privacy. But if you do select Garden Island I highly recommend the first floor suite with outdoor hot tub. The... More

Great access to diving the sites at the Rainbow Reef. Owen and all of the dive crew are highly knowledgeable and generously share their understanding of the environment and the animals you will see. Phil and Claudia operate a very well run property. Their staff is very friendly and eager to accommodate your needs. The food and beverages are excellent... More

We enjoyed our 6 night stay at Garden Island. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms have contemporary décor and are clean. The pool area is nice and the food at the restaurant was good. The only consideration at this resort, and I'm surprised that I didn't read about it in the other reviews I read before going... More

This is a great place, perfectly located for diving and snorkelling! The accommodations are very clean, comfortable and nice, especially for the price. The view from the whole property is superb.
