Sea Fiji Travel - Your Fiji Experts

Garden Island ResortGarden Island Resort

Garden Island Resort is a popular Mecca for divers. This small resort hotel is set on Fiji's "Garden Island" with a spectacular backdrop featuring verdant rain forests, stunning waterfalls and breathtaking panoramic sunsets. Originally built in 1971 as The Taveuni Travelodge, the 30 room hotel was purchased by the Morais family and extensively remodeled in 2008-2009.

All 15 Oceanfront Spa Suites (ground level) feature a patio and outdoor spa. Another 15 are Oceanview second floor rooms featuring balconies overlooking the ocean. Four of these rooms interconnect, making them ideal for families. All rooms have either a king or two twin beds plus a sofa bed in each, air conditioning, refrigerators, coffee/tea facilities, TV, and internet access. 

An open-air restaurant offers local and international cuisine where soft breezes, beautiful views, and the sound of ocean waves add to the enjoyment of dining. The Tagimoucia Bar is open from midday until late, offering a wide range of soft drinks, alcoholic beverages and cocktails.

The swimming pool is fresh water, and nearby golf, tennis, bushwalking, and other activities will keep you busy while not diving.  Or take a stroll down the road to the International Dateline where you can stand in both Today and Tomorrow at the same time! The island's culture is rich in tradition, and the people here embody the trademark Fijian friendliness and warmth.

Fiji has become one of the world’s most popular tropical dive destinations and much of this interest is due to the superb diving at Taveuni’s acclaimed Rainbow Reef which is ablaze with every colour of the rainbow, as multi-hued soft corals and fish feed in the tidal currents of the Somosomo Strait. Add to this clear, warm tropical water and you have truly world-class diving. Garden Island Resort’s PADI 5 Star Dive Centre offers daily excursions to this world class dive area. It is alsoTaveuni’s closest access to some of the Straits' internationally known sites, just a few minute's boat ride away. You'll visit sites like the Great White Wall, Yellow Grotto, Fish Factory, Jerry's Jelly, The Ledge, The Zoo, and Cabbage Patch, just to name a few.

With multiple dive boats in service, it’s possible to accommodate large dive groups. Separate snorkel trips are arranged to nearby Koro Island for non-divers, and kayaks are also available.
