Garden Island resort is mid price hotel in the Island of Taveuni. Like most hotels in the island it is dive resort with a ramp jetty. Rooms are comfortable and the shower (pictured) somewhat special. 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

The resort is comfortable and a good value for the $. The diving was quite good and the staff friendly and helpful. The dive staff were great at pointing out interesting marine life. We had a really fine time diving here.

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

We stayed at this hotel recently and had a wonderful time. The location right on the waters edge is idyllic and the staff are fantastic , helpful and accommodating. The room was very comfortable and clean. We also dived with the hotels dive centre every day and the diving was spectacular. Lastly and most importantly the hotel Manager Claudia also... More

This hotel has a modern,minimalist design in the rooms, which seems out of place in Fiji, but was very convenient and pleasant for our trip. It was hard to find an occasion to use the Jacuzzi tub that came with the room, but luckily it was cool enough on a few nights that we made use of it :) All... More

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...
