About Garden Island Resort

Reaching the Garden Island Resort is not a single-stop haul, but it isn’t daunting either. After landing at Fiji’s Nadi International Airport, travellers have a choice of either taking the leisurely boat service from Denarau or Suva or a quick domestic hop. After reaching Taveuni, the resort’s friendly car service will take you to Garden Island for check-in.

A boutique establishment, it has limited number of just 30 suites – all near the island’s stunning beachfront. The Oceanview Suites are excellent for families with four interconnected options, while the Oceanfront Suites are bang in front of the beach and perfect for couples and honeymooners. Each of the suites feature queen-sized beds, air-conditioning, ensuite bathroom with separate shower stalls, open-plan living area and a private patio with outdoor furniture. Additional amenities include a room safe, tea/coffee making facilities, WiFi, flatscreen TV, DVD player, satellite cable and a mini-fridge.

The Garden Island Resort also has a great restaurant and bar, but the main attraction lies in the absolute library of on-land activities and watersports travellers can ‘dive’ into. Set next to Somosomo Straits, it has over 30 world-class dive sites and a PADI-certified dive shop in-house. Our recommendation? Don’t miss dive opportunities to the Great White Wall, Rainbow’s End, Blue Ribbon Eel Reef, Jerry’s Jelly and Fish Fingers! You can book one/two-tank dives at the resort itself and there are reminders about when the tide is perfect for night-time diving.

On land, there is an equal profusion of experiences. From hiking trips to village visits and cultural tours, check out Things to Do for more details. In short, people can spend weeks exploring the island and the watersports and never get bored at the Garden Island Resort.

Incidentally, couples can also book the resort fully for weddings. Imagine having your own resort for a traditional Fijian wedding with your friends and family – celebrating the start of a new life together with sweet élan!

If this is your first time visiting Fiji, read up on our Fiji guide – we got our Specialists to sit down and write down travel times, airport info, important do’s and don’ts, convenient bank and ATM guides, weather and temperature, clothes to take and so on and so forth. It helps. Then, for watersports enthusiasts, our Specialists wrote down their top sites for snorkelling in Fiji – maybe you can add a few gems to your bucket-list!
