The staff are exceptional, the food fresh, beverages readily available (there is fresh fruit infused water, coconut juice, lemonade, plain water, before you even consider the other non-alcoholic drinks that are included in the rate, and then you have the alcoholic drinks which are reasonably priced, particularly the cocktail list which is well worth working through), activity packed days or the choice of 3 pools, the sea to laze in, including snorkeling off the pier, or taking a paddle board or kayak out. There are programs provided every evening so that you can plan the day ahead, and the programs are not just for the adults, but for the teens, children and babies. You actually go in search of your children as they are so well looked after with the programs in place, that you are left to enjoy your days at leisure. You don’t even notice that there isn’t a TV or radio in the room. The library on-site has a substantial collection to choose from, as is the activity list (there is so much to do). We can vouch for the rainforest walk to the waterfall which is a hike through lush vegetation to get to the beautiful waterfall; there is an activity for the teens where they go river tubing, which is again a trip down a river surrounded by lush vegetation as well as calling out ‘Bula’ to villagers who live by the water; you can pay to go on a pearl farm visit with J Hunter Pearls and this is an amazing venture; diving is also a paid activity thoroughly enjoyed; for the more active, take advantage of the early morning hike, and make your way to the top of the ridge for a spectacular view of the area at sunrise before heading back for a massage after breakfast. There was a 3-generation family checking in as we checked out, and when they asked how we found the resort, we said ‘blissful’ in that there was something for everyone. If you don’t want to take part in any of the organised activities, you could just grab a book, lie by your bure or the pool, and just relax with a drink by your side. Thank you Kaye, Bart, Kitty, Rosie, Camari, Roberta, Veiwili, Gabby, Mario, Raymond, Mika, Ropate, and I so wish I could remember the entire team as they made the stay what it was. Vinaka Vakalevu!

Hotel's Favorite
I've just returned from eight nights at the Resort and seem to be suffering a bad case of separation anxiety! My family and I have stayed at a few Fiji resorts over the years (Malolo, Vomo, Raddison and Hilton) but none of them get close to the Cousteau resort. The kids club is absolutely outstanding. Our buddy Sereana was amazing and our kids had a fantastic time. They made lots of new friends and all of the kids club staff were exceptional. This meant my wife and I could relax over dinner each night and even read a few books! But we also had some great times snorkeling with the kids too. The bure was comfortable, they don't have air conditioning but it was cool at night and this was never an issue for us. There are a few (small) things that could be improved. But I'm only mentioning as I'm pretty sure we will be back: 1) the food was a bit inconsistent. Most of the dishes were very good but every now and then something just didn't work or wasn't cooked well. I don't think it would take much to refine the menu to improve the consistency. 2) the service at the restaurant was always friendly and mostly efficient, but it was quite common that we'd need to order something a few times before it came 3) the wine list had a reasonable selection but was a bit expensive, the $25 BYO is a good (but not entirely practical) option 4) the rooms were a bit dark (even with the lights on) and the showers could have been a bit warmer 5) the tennis court and some of the equipment was a bit run down 6) there were a few dogs at the resort, they were pretty friendly and seemed well trained - but we had read a previous review that a child had been bitten so this made us a bit on edge when they were around - they also woke me up a couple of times barking at night But these were all very minor in the scheme of things. The staff at the resort made for an exceptional experience and we can't wait to go back.,

What can I say about this place that hasn't already been said? It is truly amazing in every way, and I think is the only place we could have gone to with children where we could have had a real rest. Let's start with the booking.....I had been keen to try JMC ever since a travel agent friend of mine told me about it. But then I checked the prices on-line - yikes! Even though everything bar alcohol and a few excursions were included, I couldn't justify the price. Eventually though, we were keen to go on an international family holiday (me, husband, and kids ages 7 and 5) so I did my research and found what appeared to be a great place in the South Pacific. When I went to my travel agent friend and told him what I wanted and what my budget was, he steered me towards JMC telling me this is the place where we should go if we wanted a break, and for the kids to have the best time ever. I can tell you that using a travel agent really is valuable, as he was able to get me JMC for my budget plus 3 dives and 3 massages, and a beachfront Bure. Sold!!! This place truly is second to none. We were greeted at Nadi Domestic Airport by the lovely Bella from JMC. A short plane ride and we were on Vanua Levu and in paradise! We were greeted at the airport at Vanua Levu and whisked directly to the resort. Stepping off the courtesy bus, our kids were identified by name by the ready staff, and taken to the kids club! All before we had even checked in! At check-in we were offered a room upgrade which we ended up taking, but our original room was just as fantastic. JMC really knows how to treat their guests. Our original room wasn't ready, but they had a day room all prepared for us so that we could freshen up as we waited. No problem as we took the upgrade! The rooms here feel very traditionally Fijian, but very elegantly appointed. There is no air-conditioning, but the bures have louvres all around, and are fully screened. There are fans as well. We come from a warm, sub-tropical climate so we are used to the heat. We found it very warm in Fiji, but we had no problem sleeping with the fans. And we hardly spent anytime in our Bure anyway as we were out and about all day. The turn-down staff also light mosquito coils in safety boxes so you are protected at night from mosquitos - we didn't have a problem in the room. Also, Pure Fiji products are for use in the bathrooms which was a lovely touch. Every day there is a schedule of activities that runs from 6am-9pm approximately - one for the Adult's/older teenagers, one for the older kids, and one for the younger kids. You are never at a loss for things to do. But you can also just spend your days lazing by the many daybeds by the pool or water. And that view! Savusavu Bay really is a sight to behold! I fell in love! The kids club here is really at a level I never even thought possible in every way. They have 3 pools! Yes, you read that right! 3 pools, just for the kids! And the care! My youngest had a nanny, Veronica, and my eldest shared a buddy, Solomon, with 4 other kids, but honestly, I could have sworn Solomon was just her buddy. They were so incredible with the kids but it was more than that.....they were just so attuned to what you needed, and nothing was ever a problem. If our girls wanted to be with us, then they could at any time, but they mostly didn't want to be with us! They were having too much fun! But that kids club! They would take the kids from 8:30am-9:30pm. Every. Day. They would bath/shower them, dress them, feed them (3 course lunch and dinners!) take them on excursions, swim with them, take them snorkelling (including night snorkelling), night creature hunts on the beach, bonfire on the beach with marshmallows. The list goes on, and on, and on. It was exhausting just seeing how much the kids were up to but they had an absolute ball! As for our experience, well, everything was just perfect. To the food, the drinks, the staff, the location, the snorkelling, the best, the water. And that list goes on too! A big thank you goes to so many of the staff - Kitty, the gorgeous Operations Manager who felt like a Mum to be, Julie, Gabby our amazing bartender, Mario, our escort who even took us to the airport on his retirement day during the work Christmas Party (so lovely of him!!!), Paulini our waitress. And so many more. There are 200 staff who work at this resort so it is impossible to name them all. So many of them are largely unseen but work to make this resort the special place it is. Thanks to all of you for your hard work. It was appreciated every single day! And lastly, a big thanks to Johnny, JMC's resident marine biologist. Not only did our girls undertake the ocean conservation program for the kids at JMC, but we were educated too with Johnny providing us with informative presentations about the environment most nights. Thanks Johnny. You made our girls feel very proud that they can now be ambassadors for the ocean too! When we had to leave, I actually had tears in my eyes. I am so grateful to have had this experience, and can't wait to save my $ to get back here again. Thank you JMC! You really did make my trip the most memorable ever!

Our group used this resort for a combination Scuba/Snorkeling day trip. We were taken out about 4o minutes to drop the snorkels with guides and then another 20 minutes for the Scuba people including a Master diver of amazing experience along with two additional instructors. We all felt this was the best experience ever. Prices were affordable, purely enjoyable experience.

My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) have just returned from a 12 night stay at JMC. Since having kids we have stayed at quite a few 5 star resorts in Fiji and none of them even come close to JMC. The location is stunning, the staff are friendly and professional and the food was consistently of a high standard. The kids club alone is reason to return to JMC. My children have never willingly gone to a hotel’s kids club but they had a blast at JMC. Their nanny and buddy (Dui and Waqa) were outstanding and had the girls out and about doing all sorts of amazing things like night snorkelling and coral planting. The resort is also great for adults, we were able to relax by the pool, kayak in the beautiful bay and go on the daily snorkel trips. When we initially booked this trip it seemed expensive but because almost everything excluding alcohol is included in the price this holiday actually worked out cheaper than our trip to the Coral Coast last year. Thank you to Kay and the team for a wonderful stay.
