Recent guest reviews
We arrived at the Koro Sun in early November and we fell in love with the resort, the people and the island. We stayed in an Edgewater Bure and woke up to the gorgeous ocean every morning! We loved the accommodations and privacy! The food was outstanding as were the cocktails. The service was impeccable. We were treated like family and everyone greeted us by name! We enjoyed several spa treatments at the Rainforest Spa, we loved meeting the locals at the waterfall and village and fell in love with all the staff. Junior, Abraham and Melika looked after us at the Wai bar and Junior went out of his way to leave a beautiful surprise in our bure! Mavis, you are amazing. Thank you Nai, Fanny, Milly, Rumeno, John, Ben, Joeli, Josie, Arvin, Miri, Kara, and all the staff at Koro Sun for treating us like royalty! You are all amazing, genuine people and you have made a lasting impression in our hearts. We miss you all and hope to return to see you one day soon!

Perfect - great room (although whilst being provided with a kitchen, stove, fridge, sink etc - there was nothing to cook with!), 2 separate bedrooms for us and kids, 2 showers - outdoors and indoors, our own plunge pool, plenty of space and not crowded with neighbours. But best of all were the staff - so friendly, welcoming, helpful and amazing with the kids - even out 2 year old who enjoyed a scream every now and again! Twp happy parents here who actually got a holiday.
Mary rose, junior, Mavis Brett and all the people who we met were the most beautiful people we have the pleasure to know. We can't explain in words just how amazing our experience was. From the beach picnic, snorkelling, and never forget junior in the wai bar. An incredible infinity pool bar with amazing sunset every night
We are relaxed and easy going people, but we were duped into thinking this place was going to offer us five star luxury - it did not and for ten nights we spent over $10,000 Australian dollars to stay in something that was 2-3 star at best. Shocking. The food was barely edible and on one occasion my children were served raw sausages... I wish we had known what we were in for and urge people looking for overwater bungalows (that is how we were suckered in) to stay away and go anywhere else but Koro Sun. The one and only saving grace was the beautiful and kind local Fijian staff who tried so hard despite the shabby place they have to work. This place was probably last decorated and updated in 1990. Save your money and don’t ruin your vacation by going here.
We stayed in an Edgewater Villa for 10 days. The staff was always friendly and I can't believe how many of them are able to call you by name when they see you -- I was impressed. The coconut foot massage and coconut welcome drink were very nice and a great way to start the trip. Our room was large and served our needs. The mattress in the downstairs room could definitely be replaced. The kitchen was nice to have -- but there were only a skillet to cook with -- needed to be stocked with a couple more pots and pans. We did enjoy the teas available to us. The view from the room was great. The grounds were nicely maintained and I enjoyed walking from our burre to the main area to see the flowers, shrubs, etc. There were nice activities to partake in during the stay that are free -- coconut demonstration (the demo is different depending on the staff member doing the presentation). The rain-forest trek was nice -- but Strenuous!! There is lots of climbing of hills and through streams involved. The kava tasting is a must do in FIJI. There was a cocktail party at the owner's home. The views from there are amazing. We enjoyed the FIJIAN night at the resort. A local village comes and performs native dances for you. It was a fun evening. As far as the food goes, I would not plan on eating here often. The prices for dinner and lunch are quite expensive. The Mongolian Wok night, Fijian buffet and barbeque buffet dinners were good -- but not work $60 per person for the food. We ate dinner at the Seaside cafe one evening. Service was really slow and the food was pretty much cold when served -- not sure what was going on with the restaurant that evening. Breakfast was included for us -- it got a little tiring to have the same items each day. Cocktails were good -- but expensive as well. The Korosun was overall a nice place to stay with friendly and helpful staff. The food could use upgrades or reduced prices to keep people at the resort for meals. I like the traditional Fijiian feel at the resort and would stay here again should I return to this area.
From the moment you are greeted by your driver at the airport to the musical welcome accompanied by a foot massage, you know you have chosen the right resort. There are many to choose from but I doubt any could make you feel like family as they do here. The edge water bure was like a dream with the steps leading you into your own snorkeling Paradise right outside your door. The entire staff was super friendly and helped in any way they could to make your stay perfect. Love it here and will be back!
I actually won my trip to this resort by raffle. This was not my choice for a tropical escape but I knew that I wanted this type of vacation. With that said, Koro Sun has everything and so much more ~ The friendly staff, beautiful accommodations and delicious food are just the beginning. There are activities for all levels and ages available every day. A true tropical experience awaits at Koro Sun. I can't say enough about my experience here ~ Do it! You will not be disappointed.
This is our favourite place to stay in Fiji. The staff are wonderful, they always remember your name and go out of their way to do anything they can for you. By the time we left we felt like family. The island of Vanua Levu, and particularly Savusavu, is less touristy than other parts of Fiji and feels closer to the real Fiji experience. There is so much to do on the island and at the resort that you never get bored. The resort was wonderful, snorkelling amazing, and the kids loved swimming off our own private deck. We have stayed at a number of places in Fiji and this is by far our favourite.
We returned to Savu Savu to celebrate our wedding there 25 years ago and chose Koro Sun Resort as it seemed to have the feel we remembered of a hidden paradise with just the right level of comfort, friendliness but not a hotel type resort ( think Sofitel, Denarau, which we stayed in on the way over). We chose the 3 bedroom Lagoon Villa since we had our two grown sons and after a little "room envy" because the Edgewater villas looked so cool and were on the beach side of the Hibiscus highway, we settled in and could not have been happier with our choice. It would take too long to mention all the reasons this was the perfect place, but the staff are so helpful, the food was great, the infinity pool bar was a sunset treat and all the guests relaxed into the friendly atmosphere so we all became part of one holiday group- honeymooners and families alike. Highlights- a cruiser bike ride down the Hibiscus highway, a rainforest trek, a local bus trip into Savu savu, snorkeling off the beach ( great tropical fish viewing), FIJI day celebrations, local church choir singing, kayaking, and the afternoon beach volleyball games with the staff... not to mention the massage at the rainforest spa which was a gift from the resort for our anniversary. It is a bit remote to get to, but that is what makes it so special- as it was 25 years ago.
We stayed in Edge Water Villa no. 1 and it was superb. We had the very healthy and comprehensive continental breakfast and did self-catering for the other meals getting stocks from the little town by hire car or cheap taxi. There are also regular bus rides. The hotel shuttle from the airport (driven by the friendly Alvin) met our plane and our luggage was delivered straight to our villa. The Villa was nothing short of Amazing. Top floor - giant bed with superb linen, huge balcony with daybed, little skylight atop a high celing and lovely highly-varnished wood everywhere. His and her basins and a pretty "porthole" window facing the floating bures (boo-rays). I can only get around with my walker and there were convenient paths everywhere; a horizon pool at the Wai Bar and large steps down right into the sea where we found a blue starfish, coral and tropical fish - heavenly. If this was my last ever swim in the sea I couldn't have had it at a better place - evening sun going down, high tide, warm water....heavenly! My wheels don't work on sand so most sea is hopeless for me. All the staff from the admin. office to our wonderful "villa help" Oni were full of smiles, friendly, efficient and very helpful. The facilities were numerous and our two youngest members thoroughly enjoyed kayaking and having foot massages and loved the Rainforest Spa. There was a thriving little club for the children, a children's pool, tennis courts, volleyball courts and a daily programme full of excitement for those wanting to take advantage of tours etc. The Methodist choir from the nearby village was really excellent and we would like to thank them again for a great experience. The dive centre and activity centre were run by charming staff and were always busy. There were plenty of water "stations" where you could fill up your bottles or jugs and our villa had a huge fridge as part of a proper kitchenette. Outside our front door was a really cute little pool running under a bridge (yes, I did swim under it) and a delightful garden. Words cannot really express the uniqueness of the resort - we even had two portholes in the floor of our villa - never seen this anywhere else! The "honeymoon" bures and the floating bures had the same high quality furnishings as our villa and also had ladders or decks down into the lagoon. Thank you all at Koro Sun for a wonderful holiday and, if we get a chance, we will be back one day - you made us feel so very welcome. Anne
