Where do I start about JMC….. When you are there you know it is amazing but you don’t realise just how amazing it is until you go somewhere else. We went for the kids to become even bigger marine warriors and to elope. The kids were permanently looked after and so so happy they

Another incredible Sunset
Exterior Ocean view bure
The view from our Bure
the beach is broken coral and not much sand. ppl got here to dive and to do that you go out in a boat. they have a private island about 500 m away that was good but again you cant really swim like in Tahiti or Hawaii. warning the hotel is VERY 'eco' and not 5 star more like 4 star ok we were very disappointed but it does have its charms

Do the rooms have a curtain to divide up the room and the living area for kids sleeping?
The Gardenview and Oceanfront bures are open plan however we can put in a free standing screen which can provide separation from the King bed. Christine JMC Resort

Hi - what is weather like in mid April?
Fiji has a warm tropical climate perfect for beachside holidays and is a key reason Fiji has a reputation as one of the worlds most sought after holiday destinations. The best months for holidaying in regards to Fiji weather is late March through to early December. Maximum temperatures in Fiji rarely move out of the 31C to 26C range all year round. A cooling trade wind blows from the east south-east for most of the year. It usually drops to a whisper in the evening and picks up again by mid-morning. Fiji does have a wet season. The wet season is normally from November to April and results from the southerly movements of the South Pacific Convergence Zone. The wet season is characterised by heavy, brief local showers and contributes most of Fiji's annual rainfall. Annual rainfall on the main islands is between 2000mm and 3000mm on the coast and low lying areas, and up to 6000mm in the mountains. Typically the smaller islands in Fiji receive less rainfall than the main Island with various amounts according to their location and size, ranging from 1500mm to 3500mm. Cyclones do occur in Fiji and are normally confined to wet season.

We have had marathon runners as guests and they have jogged along the very quiet road and up some steep tracks behind the resort as well as the beach as mentioned. Just ask the activities staff.

"Rooms facing the ocean have the best views but you are not going to be in your room much..."
"Ocean front Buree beautiful views. We stayed in Number 6 not too far from all amenities"
"Ocean-facing Bures are nice, but you can't really go wrong as you won't spend much time in your room."
"Stayed in ocean front 2 bedroom with shared bath (Bure 11) fabulous views and good privacy. Easy walk to restaurant and activities."
"Garden bures easily accommodate a family of four"
