As part of my visit to several resorts in Fiji in April, I had the chance to stop at Garden Island in Taveuni. Not a scheduled stop but one that I wanted to see. There had been a lot of changes there and I wanted to see them first hand. Please note, I did not stay there, dive there, or eat there, it was a quick visit to see the upgrades. They now have a very nice pier that goes out a good distance. They are adding to that pier to allow for power yachts to use. The resort is not the typical Fijian ambiance, in fact it is very European in its styling. The bottom floor rooms all have a Jacuzzi on the porch, the uppers do not. All the rooms have been upgraded and are very nice. I like this resort but if you are looking for that Fijian ambiance, you will not get a lot of that, but if you want a clean, well run resort with access to some great diving and have a smaller budget, this is a great resort for you! The owner, Philip, is very nice and made us feel very welcomed even though it was an unannounced visit.
