Tokoriki Island Resort provides excellent accommodation, meals and activities on a beautiful tropical island about 30km from Nadi, Fiji. It's a 4.5 star resort rating but delivers a 5 star service in every way (island style).
Arriving at Tokoriki Island Resort:
Check-in is nominally at noon. If taking a South Sea Cruises connection from Denarau Marina, you'll arrive on one of the two daily sailings at around 10:15am or 4.50pm. It's a wonderful arrival! Staff sing and welcome you at the boat with coconut shell leis. Check-in formalities are then done in the lounge over a welcome drink and a cold towel. There are helicopter transfers available too that take just 15 minutes from Nadi airport or Denarau.
Tokoriki Island Resort itself:
This is a beautiful place - lovely gardens, pool, white sandy beaches, clear sea waters. The accommodation, food and activities are all excellent with much attention to detail. No children are permitted and it's mostly couples, so the resort has a quieter, more serene feel.
I stayed in both a deluxe beach bure and a sunset pool villa. While the deluxe beach bure is excellent, the sunset pool villas is magnificent with its own pool and cabana. Both types of accommodation are beautifully furnished. There is no TV or phone in the rooms but I didn't miss them - it made my stay more relaxing. I did however use my iPhone for WiFi internet which is available in the lobby/lounge area.
I took the meal plan and was not disappointed. Food is delicious, very well presented and there is plenty of choice. The menu changes every day. There are some theme nights too which are fun. Try the kava if you are brave enough (haha)! At lunch and dinner there is live entertainment from Fijian singers. And each day has a happy hour with discounted drinks. There are some tables right at the sea side which can be reserved for a very romantic and private dinner.
There's more than enough on offer each day: village visits, diving trips, treking, water sports, fishing, snorkelling and a lot more. Snorkelling on the nearby home reef was wonderful. I also did lots of swimming. And each day there are different demonstrations of Fijian culture. It's interesting to learn the many uses from a single coconut tree.
Tokoriki Island Resort staff and management:
Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and it's amazing how they all remember your name. Always smiling. Often singing (haha). The managers mingle with the guests and go out of their way to personally make sure your stay is great.
Leaving Tokoriki Island Resort:
Check-out is nominally at 10:00am which fits in perfectly with the South Sea Cruises connection to Denarau Marina which departs the resort at around 10.15am. But if you have a late flight, I highly recommend to stay around the resort for the day and catch the 4:50pm departure which arrives at Denarau Marina at 6:00pm. It's so much nicer than spending the time at Nadi airport!
