Spent 10 days at the resort. The housekeepers were excellent. The dive shop was excellent. The food was excellent. The staff went out of their way to help you. Several invited us to their homes and island activites. The fact is that this is where you come to dive. The reef is only 15min boat ride which is very nice.... More

Excellent Diving and excellent resort. The food and the accommodations are first class. Great staff. Stayed two weeks...the service and value are unbeatable. I suggest checking your junk mail for any replies, apparently there is some internet glitch when they respond to your email queries.

Stayed for 2 nights way back in 2009. Would love to come again. The accommodation was nice, Spacey and clean. Staffs were friendly. All their meals was tasty. The view from the room into the ocean with the waves hitting the shore was amazing.

After spending a wonderful week at Garden Island Resort in 2011, we decided to spend two weeks there this year. The staff is the best we've encountered in our travels. They are simply the most gracious folks you'll ever meet. The good food is very plentiful and varied. The bar is well stocked and priced fairly. The rooms and grounds... More

We spent a wonderful 9 days spent at this resort. The rooms are lovely with oceanfront views. The rooms are clean, beds are very comfortable, there is a security safe in the room for peace of mind and a shower with heaps of water pressure. The rooms have aircon as well as ceiling fans plus there is a great laundry... More

I live in Hawaii and have traveled all over the world. The week that my wife and I spent at Garden Island Resort in Taveuni was one of the best travel experiences of my life.

I have a stressful job, and the two weeks we spent at Garden Island Resort were pure heaven. Don't let the slightly bumpy ride to the resort fool you. You couldn't ask for a more idyllic location -- literally walk out the sliding door of our room and stare at clear blue ocean water. Perhaps sit in the hammock under... More
