Located on Savusavu, Vanua Levu, the Koro Sun Resort is aimed at those travellers who want to skip the ‘tourist traps’ and head for the real deal. Its pristine beauty, loads of activities, especially diving, make for an unbeatable combination.
Vanua Levu is smaller than the Fijian mainland of Viti Levu and therefore, less discovered and photographed (or trashed). With its sheltered coves for roving yachts, crystal-clear waters, plentiful marine life and Fijian culture and traditions – Vanua Levu is what travellers want to experience in a Fiji holiday.
The Koro Sun Resort is just a 15-minute ride from Savusavu’s airport and travellers love the scenic beauty of the hills, rainforests and the pale blue waters of the Pacific on either side of the road.
The resort is ideally situated between the slopes of a lush rainforest and the white sand beach. There is a picturesque jetty, with a line of overwater villas and the resort prides itself on a host of land and water-based activities – especially diving. Koro has a fully-certified dive shop which teaches new enthusiasts to learn diving and several dive sites where divers can come face-to-face with pods of dolphins and healthy soft coral reefs. Travellers also have a choice of two beaches, (one of them private) to sun, snorkel and swim. There is a nine-hole golf course for fun, as well as tennis courts. However, the adventurous can hike up to the magnificent Vuodomo Waterfalls, kayak on the Salt River or go for hikes in the nearby woodlands. Plus, the Koro Sun Resort has no less than three huge freshwater pools.
Of course, we would also suggest experiencing the warm Fijian hospitality during a traditional village visit.
The resort offers travellers a large choice in accommodations. There are three sites around which the villas and bures/rooms are located – in the resort gardens, nestled in the hills or situated around the water’s edge. Koro also offers its guests the choice to stay in a ‘floating bure’ or a two-storey treetop bure. From cosy garden bures for couples to the massive five-bedroom Mountain Top Villa overlooking the resort, Koro has something for every type of traveller.
The resort has also made one-bedroom Tropical Apartments in its Rainforest section. These accommodations feature a kingsize bed, attached bathroom, lounge, open-plan living space and a kitchenette. Outside the air-conditioned apartment is the courtyard where the guests can lounge in the evenings with a cup of tea (or a glass of wine, for that matter!)
The resort could have been just a diver’s delight, with superb dive sites and great snorkelling to be sampled. But the location, villas and the warm hospitality make it a delight for families, couples, adventurers and all.
