Description

The boutique and internationally acclaimed Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort overlooks the pristine waters of Savusavu Bay on Vanua Leve, to the north of the country. Surrounded by spectacular secluded coastline, stunning coral reefs and exotic marine life, this socially and environmentally responsible resort is one of the most renowned destinations in the South Pacific. It offers an authentic Fijian experience for discerning travelers of all ages, combining culture, wellbeing, nature and the local environment as well as total relaxation and exceptional cuisine. Boasting a resident marine biologist and a huge array of complimentary activities, it is a favorite for honeymooners, couples and families alike.

The Scuba diving is out of this world, with incredible sites for divers and snorkellers, as endorsed by Jean-Michel Cousteau himself. Enjoy many other non d watersports such as sailing and kayaking or on land enjoy tennis, volleyball and plenty more. You can take trips inland to local villages to experience their unique culture first hand and perhaps even enjoy a Sunday church service, where the singing has to be heard to be believed! Wellbeing is also an important theme here, with daily yoga, wonderful spa treatments in beach-side cabanas and delicious cuisine. The food is international standard with a pan Asian and seafood emphasis.

One of the highlights of staying here is the option to hire the hotel's very own private island for the morning or afternoon and have a desert island experience complete with champagne picnic - truly Robinson Crusoe in style! For families, this is an excellent choice of resort as the Bula Club has facilities for children from 6 months upwards and a very educational program is in place.
