Our second visit was amazing, it was so nice when we arrived to hear ‘welcome home’ by Penioni who remembered us from our last stay.
I have to say the personal touch at Tokoriki is what gives the resort that extra special experience. Alfie the Guest Relations manager was fantastic, thanks Alfie we enjoyed our chats and your knowledge of the Fiji islands. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner from Australia who shouted us a few cocktails and told us a few of his stories over 18 years of owning the resort, his passion for the resort and care for the beautiful Fijian people was lovely to hear and see. Also nice to know our contribution by staying at the resort really helps the local village of 600 people, some actually work at the resort. If you get a chance do the village trip to see the school and the children who will sing for you and show you their work.
We stayed in the beachfront bure with a pool and the outdoor shower had been rebuilt (which we thought was so nice last trip) it’s now double the size of the old one. The last 2 nights we upgraded to a Pool Villa same size large pool but the room was double the size 120sqm. We enjoyed the free canapés delivered at 5pm each day and loved the free laundry that came back beautifully folded, wrapped in a basket with a flower on top. It’s the little things we noticed that make Tokoriki so special. Too many to mention, you just have to see for yourself.
We did notice another resort under construction on the other side of the island when we took the kayaks for a paddle around the island, a Sheraton resort primarily for families and was once the old Amunuca resort, they said should open in June, doesn’t look very Fijian from what we saw. We loved the no little kids factor at Tokoriki, so peaceful, so serine, beautiful established gardens with many different flower varieties. Even the gardeners took the time to chat to us. Highly recommend the Teppanyaki, we met 2 other couples from New York and another couple from the UK. Tui and Mama are very entertaining and the restaurant only seats 4 couples so book before you go to the resort for sure.
The Spa was such a lovely place, we took the unlimited massage offer for 3 days and extended another day and we came home so relaxed. Thanks to the lovely spa ladies, sorry can’t remember all your names as we had a different one each day.
Thanks again Tokoriki for another great stay and we hope to visit you again next year.
