We spent 6 nights, arrived March 29, 2018, in a floating bure with a deck on the lagoon and our own private kayak. We enjoyed every minute of being at one with the natural and unspoiled beauty of the lagoon/ocean and the rainforest where the main restaurant, lounge and reception are located amongst rainforest bures, swimming pools, the golf course and the spa. This resort is a destination in itself. I recommend walking the entire property and experiencing all the wonders of nature there. Regarding the staff, it was like finding yourself in the midst of a very warm and inviting community; something long gone from our residence just outside of Washington, DC. Everywhere you roam you will hear a friendly "Bula!". Our main goal was to experience the underwater marine life; and the Dive 4 Life Company on the resort took us to magnificent sites teaming with fish and soft coral. It gave my heart great joy to see marine life thriving. In addition, the divemaster, Rodney Simpson, was going deep sea fishing and we hoped on Captain Linzi's boat and we were treated to an exciting day of deep sea catches, one of which we requested the restaurant to prepare and we all had a feast. If you want to get back in touch with nature, Koro Sun Resort and Rainforest Spa has it all!
I had such a good time at Koro Sun and couldn't fault this place. The room was incredible, the staff were so helpful and friendly, the food was up there with some of the best i'd had in Fiji - I told the chefs this too! And I went on the best scuba dive i'd ever been on; seeing hammerhead sharks, a manta ray and a big moray eel. All in all, it was so good! It's set out on beautiful grounds and is in close proximity to Savusavu a real gem of a place to visit. I will definitely be returning with the family at some point later in the year and look forward to staying here again. Vinaka!
This resort is really beautiful with great rooms and activities. The infinity pool is lovely but beware the beige sun umbrellas around the pool (and perhaps elsewhere in the resort) which appear to be for allowing you to sit out in the strong sun, but which are only about 50% UV proof. My friend and I both got bad sunburns since it seems like the umbrellas provide full shade but they do not, and there is no warning about it anywhere. The umbrellas themselves should have that warning written on them, and the staff around the bar, restaurant, and pool should also mention it to guests to avoid nasty sunburns from sitting under such umbrellas without knowing that they are not sun proof. Otherwise, a lovely place with great massage options too.
My best friend and I went to Koro Sun for 5 days and nights to celebrate turning 40 this year. Everything about the experience was amazing. It’s a gorgeous place with tons to do and tons of beautiful places to relax. MOST of all, the staff are the friendliest people I have ever met and made sure we had a completely amazing trip. Everyone knew our names and treated us like family. Everything at Koro Sun was very well thought out and people were very invested in us having an authentic Fijian experience. The best of both the rainforest and the ocean. Incredible! If you can, go!!!
Overall a beautiful resort. Stayed in a 2 bedroom pool Bure which we booked as it was listed as having a full kitchen. There was only tea and coffee making facilities but the large private pool made up for the lack of kitchen. Housekeeping, grounds, restaurant and reception staff were all wonderful and friendly. Everything was amazing until a coconut fell through our windscreen. Koro Sun had engaged contractors to de-nut the coconut trees above their designated parking area. We were not asked to move our vehicle prior to work commencing. Fortunately we witnessed the event. The assistant manager verbally advised us that Koro Sun would take full responsibility and arranged a replacement vehicle. The rental company required confirmation of liability in writing. We tried to get this before leaving. After waiting for action for ages the General Manager, who we believe was avoiding us, finally appeared and gave us a letter stating we were not at fault. This was not sufficient for the car company. We spent a further 3 hours in their office - 2 hours away - phoning and emailing the resort. They stopped answering our calls. Finally we emailed that if we didn’t have liability confirmation in writing within 5 minutes we were cancelling our flights and taking legal action. This got a result. So much wasted time on our valuable holiday. The General Manager was unprofessional and slack. Shame on you!
We had a wonderful 4 Day Stay at KSR Feb. 24-28, 2018. Pickup at the Savusavu airport was right on time - and we were greeted in the lobby with a cold Coconut drink and relaxing foot massage! Afterwards - escorted to our Edgewater Bure (#4) and a cold bottle of champagne! Fabulous accommodations with a gorgeous view (and ladder) of the lagoon and a short stroll to the Wai Bar and Pool. We spent most lunches and Happy Hour here...included Continental Breakfast in the main lodge was delicious, as were the dinners we had in the restaurant. Many daily activities during our visit (some complimentary, some charged) We took the Rainforest Trek past the Spa (nice hike to a small waterfall and pool). My spouse really enjoyed the 1 1/2 hour Massage - and KSR arranged for a J Hunter Pearl Farm & Factory Tour on our last morning. Fantastic! Staff were absolutely fabulous and gracious! Loved the farewell song as we left! Hope to visit KSR again on our next Trip to Fiji!
Stayed here for one week as a special treat for my 30th birthday with my partner. The tiny plane over to the island was a thrill and we were greeted with cold champagne waiting in our room :) the views from our edgewater bure were to die for, could literally lie on that daybed for ever and watch the octopus and brightly coloured fish swim through the crystal clear waters below our balcony. Koro sun resort employees made our stay extra special - my partner made a special request for a birthday breakfast to be delivered and the koro sun employees gave me a lovely handmade card and cake. We also got engaged that morning on the bure balcony :) Available to use whenever we felt like it were paddle boards and kayaks which we helped ourselves to, to explore the open water. We also spent so much time just snorkelling directly below our balcony which was easy to access with the ladder down We booked a dive with Namena divers - it was so good we booked another! This resort is quiet - it's about down time and slowing down, don't expect hustle and bustle on an evening in the restaurant and wave goodbye to good wifi connection as that's not what this place is about Myself and my partner have a saying now when we relax and take it slow we just say 'Fiji time':) P.s if you need to wait for your reconnecting flight I'd suggest to stay at the complimentary hotel on Fiji's main island - we opted to visit the town centre and unless you wanted to buy bulk souvenirs all day there was not a lot else to do as if you didn't buy souvenirs the driver seemed annoyed and wouldn't take us anywhere else as he seemed to be employed by the souvenir shop - but of a strange ending to an otherwise lovely holiday!
We spent 10 days at the Koro Sun Resort to celebrate our anniversary and to make a dive trip out of it. We had spent our honeymoon at Beqa lagoon in Fiji and wanted to come back to relive the Fijian experience. But this time we wanted to try another island. We chose Savusavu as our destination because we want try something different but yet very Fijian and need to have great blue waters to scuba dive. KSR fit the bill. We got an edge-water bure and were not disappointing! The room (EB-9) was clean, spacious and comfortable. The views are to die for. The staff is simply unbelievable. So gracious and friendly, we wish the world was Fijian!!! When we got there we were even greated with a foot massage and fresh coconut water. And to top it all, there is a GREAT dive operations on site...just steps from our bure: Dive 4 Life, and these guys were amazing. Definitely a 5-star operation. But don't expect a Hilton or an Intercontinental hotel...this is a simpler, more down to earth experience. No glamour...just relaxing fun (depending on who you are with..haha). Don't bother bringing fancy clothes and ask the wife to leave the high heals at home...some flip-flops will suffice. The spa is also amazing. The spa room is located in the middle of a forest (they drive you up) with a waterfall just in front of it. So as you lay there for your couple's (or single) massage, you hear the rumbling to the water rushing past the room. And if you are active, there is plenty to do: kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, scuba diving, bicycles, swimming, hiking, etc. This was an unforgettable experience for sure!!
Went here on our honeymoon and it was fabulous! The staff was absolutely wonderful. The food was fresh and delicious. There are plenty of day excursions you can take if you're interested or you can just lounge around if you prefer. It's a monster to travel there. I think it took 23 hours to travel from the east coast of the US so be sure to stay at least a week to make the long journey worth it.
Nice place, needs updating in the garden units. Coconut trees dropping coconuts everywhere so be careful. Great pool overlooking the bay and sea with pool bar. Breakfast is ok with extra charge for cooked anything which is wrong but profits prevail.
