We always enjoy our time at the Colo-I-Suva Rainforest Resort. The children love the reasonably priced family bungalow where they each have a bed (4) and we don’t hear their constant chatter from our room downstairs- so everyone is happy! Because it’s nestled in the...rainforest, it’s also very cool and quiet. All you hear are the birds singing their different melodies!More

My wife and dined here for dinner,my wife ordered the prawns and I the salt and pepper squid which was overpriced and barely warm on a mountain of fresh crisp lettuce!! I’m sure the squid had be froze that had been heated in a microwave...and served on the lettuce! My meal was disappointing and not worth the money!More

My wife and I had dinner here as we were staying nearby. I ordered the Ika Vakalolo, which was described as reef fish wrapped in banana leaves and cooked in coconut milk, and my wife ordered pan fried reef fish. What actually arrived at our...table was curiously similar - the pan fried fish was certainly pan fried, but I strongly suspect the banana-leaf-wrapped-coconut-milk-cooked fish came out of the same frying pan. Having said that, it was rather tasty. The highlight has to have been the salad which arrived complete with complimentary dirt dressing - actual soil still on the lettuice which was also nicely distributed throughout the entire salad (see photo). Needless to say we chose to give that one a miss, making our meal just two small peices of fish. Admittedly it wasn't stupendously expensive, but it left us rather hungry afterwards. To add to the experience, a good while after we finished, I asked the waiter for the cheque. His cheerful reply was 'no rush'. The best part of the experience was the lake next to the dining area with loads of big fish swimming around.More

Our family group had several meals here, breakfast, lunch and dinner. We loved the relaxed and friendly service and we enjoyed the food very much. We particularly liked the 'Taste of Fiji' offerings that gave us a chance to try various traditional local dishes. Highly...recommended!More

I went for a Saturday breakfast with a visiting relative who was keen to eat local seafood whenever available, so we chose this due to a grilled fish and tomato dish on the breakfast menu. I ordered a egg and bacon burger, which arrived at...room temperature. The fish wasn't much warmer (though apparently quite tasty), and served without the expected tomato. After asking the staff, the chef advised they had run out of tomato the day before. The cooked meal was also meant to come with toast, which we had to ask for separately, and then had to ask again for the butter and conserves that were meant to be included. On a positive note: lovely setting and great smoothies.More

Rain Tree Restuarant is a little expensive, atmosphere is ok and the food is not that great. Overall an average standard, we ordered spicy prawns, fish and banana rum dessert. This was fine but not the best meal for me. This is just my experience...in that evening but if you want to go and try yourself then give it a go. My personal opinion the restaurant needs improvement in most areas of the service. Not to sure if i would wish to have dinner again at RainTree.More

We enjoyed a walk in the forest and then stopped for lunch. The view over the small lake was pretty and we loved the kingfisher which sat in front of us for ages. However, the drinks were average and the food likewise. It would not...take much to lift the standard of the food or to prepare it a little faster.More
