The award-winning, five-star Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort is one of the most renowned vacation destinations in the South Pacific. Located on the island of Vanua Levu on 17 acres of a coconut plantation, the accommodations overlook the peaceful waters of Savusavu Bay. The acclaimed resort is an international favorite for romance, honeymoons and weddings; scuba diving; and families, who want to combine heavenly surroundings and exceptional dining with an unsurpassed range of eco-friendly activities. A sister resort to the Post Ranch Inn and the Hotel Hana-Maui, Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands resort is the only resort that employs a full-time marine biologist to help visitors appreciate the underwater world of Fiji. Built on the site of a former coconut plantation, the 17-acre resort features 25 spacious bures. Built of local timbers, these traditional thatched Fijian bungalows provide privacy, comfort and personalized service. Each bure features rattan furnishings, king-size bed with custom-made mattress, small sitting area with desk, wooden louvered windows, overhead fan, and private deck with garden or ocean views. Oversized bathrooms in warm Italian tile offer double sink basins, separate shower, and hair dryer. Other amenities include minibar with complimentary beverages and snacks, French press coffee maker, plush robes and tropical flowers. To ensure a serene environment, the bures have no telephones or televisions. Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort offers an exceptional range of cultural, educational, environmental and recreational experiences. Many activities are enjoyable for all guests, and some are of special interest to romantic couples, children or water enthusiasts. Join us for local village excursions, rain forest hikes to waterfalls, mangrove adventures, reef flat walks, basket weaving and Fijian story telling narrated by our local Fijian Cultural Host, Niumaia. Don't miss Niumaia's Medicinal Plant Walk. We are also the only property in Fiji that has a full-time, resident marine biologist, who is on hand to explain our island's flora, fauna and sea life. Sports enthusiasts can play tennis on our court set among the gardens, or join the staff in a game of volleyball (but be warned they rarely lose!). Refresh your mind and body with laps in our freshwater swimming pool just steps from the ocean. Explore the local clam project by snorkeling off our jetty, or take the glass bottom boat to snorkel on the outer reefs accompanied by our Marine Biologist to explain the area's extraordinary diversity. Or dive in to scuba - the L'Aventure team offers a full range of dive opportunities and experiences, from beginner to expert level.
