We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Koro Sun Resort the first week in December 2008. We have 2 children aged 4 and 1 and we just didn't want to leave.
We had booked to stay in a 2 bedroom Rainforest Bure, which is a good size (a bedroom on either side of the living room and a screen enclosed deck off the front of the living room) and nice and cool during the day. These were the first rooms built in the Resort though and although the decor has been updated, only the vanity in the bathroom has been redone, the rest was still old and we were a little disappointed with this. But, if you expect this and that sort of thing doesn't bother you, they are nice spacious rooms up in the trees. They also have no phones or TV's, which is nice if you want some quiet time.
We ended up upgrading to the newly built Edgewater Villas over the water which are absolutely fantastic! They are 2 storey - the whole top floor is a massive bedroom with vanity, shower, toilet etc. Downstairs there is a living area, a kitchen, another bedroom off the living room separated by a sliding shutter door and a bathroom off that room. It also has a flat screen TV and DVD player, which came in very handy for our 4 year old. It has it's own pool at the front door with a little bridge that you walk across to get to your room. This was fantastic because we could swim here with our 4 year old while our 1 year old was sleeping during the day. These villas are awesome and I would definitely book this next time. The only downfall was that there are no "blockout" window coverings anywhere and the sun rises on the glass front of the villa, so we were up at about 5:30am each morning wih the children, but it didn't seem to worry our neighbours who didn't have any children.
The staff bent over backwards to ensure we had a wonderful stay. When they couldn't get the cot up the stairs in the Edgewater Villas, Josh the Maintenance Manager, organised for it to be lifted up over the balcony - he is a legend!
The "feel" of Koro Sun is something really special too. We stayed at the Hilton on Denarau the following week ,and while it was nice, my first choice would be the Koro Sun - it was a much more Fijian experience. There are activities organised for each day which you can choose to take part in or not - some excursions cost money, others don't. Solo and Johnny are wonderful at keeping the guests entertained and while there wasn't a Kids Club running while we were there (ours were the only children at the time), there was never a shortage of staff to pick up the children and take them for a walk, or play with them, while we were eating our meals. The food is absolutely sensational! There are 2 choices for each course for lunch and dinner and every meal was fantastic - for the children as well. I can' rave about this enough!
The Spa is also wonderful - it is right at the back of the resort beside a waterfall which is so nice and relaxing when you are getting a massage. I think my 2 massages (I wish I had time for more) are the best I have ever had. They are reasonably priced and definitely well worth it.
We had a wonderful time at this resort and didn't want to leave. Everyone goes out of their way to make sure you enjoy yourself and feel welcome. I'd go back tomorrow!
