This is a nice and clean place to stay with beautiful view. The price is relatively reasonnable. The rooms are clean, breakfast was simple but ok. You can even have pizza for dinner but you have to place an order in advance :)

I had dinner with my partner on the occasion of her birthday at this fabulous resort on the island of Taveuni in Fiji.

A wonderful three course...

I stayed here for two weeks while diving the Rainbow Reef, which was a 15-minute boat ride from the resort. The reef lived up to its name, having a spectrum of colors in the soft corals and an abundance of sea life, including sharks and a manta ray. Waking up each morning to the sight and sounds of the ocean...

We stayed this hotel for 9 nights. We chose the Ocean Front Spa room, but apparently the spa is not available like other previous reviews said. Many rooms were under renovation during our stay.

Considering that a cyclone devastated a lot of properties on the island of Taveuni, Garden Island Resort had done a great job of getting the property back up to par. Our group was supposed to stay in the upper rooms, but those were still under repair, so we were put in the lower rooms. Those rooms used to have a...
