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. The oceanfront rooms were immaculate and provided the perfect view of the ocean (and A/C). The staff was super friendly and attended to our every... More

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

We booked it because it was the cheapest of the resorts on Taveuni that has air conditioning in the rooms. It suited our purpose as Divers. It is a nice hotel with very friendly staff. The room with the Ocean view gives a beautiful view of the Ocean from the bed. The food was good. You have to order your... More

My family and I stayed 3 nights at the Resort. All our meals were excellent and the chilled jugs of sangria just delicious! The rooms were clean and comfortable and the bed was like sleeping on a giant cloud. Quite possibly the best nights sleep I've experienced whilst on holiday ever! Only downside was the attitude of the receptionist. She... More

We enjoyed the meals, and they were even able to assist us with dietary restrictions. The dive center is located on site and readily available to take you to... More

This is a very nice hotel which is more reasonably priced among others in the area. Dive shop and the connecting pier is just next door of your rooms so it's exceptionally convenient if you are a diver. In addition, this resort is also very close to the Rainbow Reef, so it saves the long ride out in the bumpy... More
