The unit was large and right on the waters edge. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Not many staying when we were there and had the pool to ourselves. The food was reasonable and only concern was that the food selection did not display prices and a toasted sandwich costing $26 Otherwise the units were very clean and enjoyed... More

We stayed at Garden Island Resort for a week during which Cyclone Pam paid us a visit. This was our second stay at Garden Island and we were very satisfied with our stay once again. When we were picked up at the airport we were informed that diving was going to be tricky due to the storm. They made arrangements... More

I recently spent a week in Fiji scuba diving with some friends, and was fortunate enough to stay at Garden Island Resort. From the minute we arrived, we were made to feel welcome. The staff at the resort are exceptional....by the second day, they knew all of our names and never failed to greet us with a smile. The rooms... More

I just returned from a week of scuba diving on Taveuni Island with 12 friends. We stayed at Garden Island Resort and could not have been more pleased. Garden Island Resort is a small hotel located just minutes away from Rainbow Reef. Every single member of the staff was so warm and friendly. Within a day of our arrival, they... More

This resort is a little gem! You'd drive past if you didn't know it was there, and certainly from the front it looks nothing special, however once you get inside it is chic, friendly and value for money. It also serves delicious food (which you do have to let them know in advance if you're eating there for lunchroom dinner).... More

The 5 shower heads on vertical bar sprays water virtually all over the body.Sort of a standing spa. Choice of meals are limited and a... More

Our air conditioned room had a perfect south pacific island view of the azure sea framed by palm trees. An extra feature was trees full of fruit bats roosting and flying. The people could not have been more gracious. Each day our room was freshened and decorated with beautiful hibiscus flowers. The food was always delicious. The beef curry made... More
