Ni Sa Bula Vinaka Erica T, I express my deepest gratitude to you both for writing an awesome review of your recent stay with us. It was truly wonderful to have met you both and share our experiences. I am humbled by your review which provides details of our Bures, Facilities, and your experience of the Excursions Spa, Diving and the Dinning. I am particularly humbled by your mention of so many staff members from all departments, including our General Manager who is always very support off the local staff. This is what makes Savusavu a unique destination as the people truly want you to find at HOME. We believe each member of the Jean-Michel Cousteau Team has a gift to share with each and every Guests, I am so glad to hear that Viri worked her Magic and Andy and the Team ensured that Bob had the 5 different diving sites. Again thank you so much for posting the review and we hope to welcome you back in the near future to your home away from home. Lolomas from the Hidden Paradise of Fiji!

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

We went to this resort because we love scuba diving. But it is more than this. It is a beautiful resort that caters as well to non divers. It has a great children program, great food and lots of very attentive staff. And if you're lucky, like we were, you get to meet the legend,

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.

"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"
"We had a room overlooking the bay, Cabin 10. It was 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom and lovely. Very quiet with a beautiful view."
