Recent guest reviews
We wanted a luxurious, intimate and secluded honeymoon and found all this and more at Tokoriki Island Resort. We stayed in a sunset villa and loved the privacy of the beachfront positioning, and the beautiful facilities. Lovely touches like welcome champagne and fresh-picked flowers each morning added to the enjoyment of the accommodation. The resort facilities and activities on offer were fantastic - we were able to do as much or as little as we pleased, and interact with other guests to the same degree! The food was incredible but by far the best aspect of our stay was the genuine and friendly staff. From remembering our names (& favourite songs) to professional yet friendly banter, without exception every single staff member we interacted with enhanced our stay. We'll definitely be back - we were researching flights back to Fiji before we'd even left the resort!
We spent 4 days at Tokoriki resort for our honeymoon in November. We were fortunate to get an upgrade to a beach front Villa with a plunge pool. While the resort is expensive the resort really does deliver a high quality experience. The pool and its surrounds are well maintained and picturesque and the acoustic music and welcome songs create a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere. From our experience the dinners are expensive but quite good. The ice cream is perfect way to finish your meal no matter what time of day. The Tippenyaki is a fun experience and a must do in my opinion. The room we had had a great view and the plunge pool was a great way to start the day. Housekeeping were non-invasive but on top of everything. The room was always spotless and cool at the end of a long day. All the activities are great, but do book in advance. Having stayed at other resorts in Hawaii and Fiji the thing which stood out most was how friendly and welcoming the staff were. The staff are always smiling and happy to have a conversation. Talking to everyone you felt genuinely part of the family, if only for a few days, which is something that can be lost at other, larger resorts. I can assure you you will not regret a visit to Tokoriki and the staff will welcome you as family when you arrive. We left relaxed, rejuvenated and sad to go.
My husband and I visited Tokoriki from November 23-28th. We had spent two and a half busy weeks in Australia, travelling from Brisbane to Sydney by car, and definitely needed the relaxation that Tokoriki offered. Tokoriki is easy to get to through Nadi and Port Denarau. We did the South Seas Cruise both ways and have no complaints. We took the early cruise, as to have the day on the island. We were greeted by the beautiful welcome song, and had an easy check-in process. Our room was not yet ready, so we changed and hung out by the pool with a drink. We checked into beachside bure 14 which was beautiful, comfortable, and perfectly acquainted, complete with a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine for our honeymoon. Noa was incredibly helpful and welcoming throughout the check in process. Our first full day we spent kayaking, swimming and exploring. Unfortunately, on day two at Tokoriki my husband slipped at the spa and sprained his ankle after our complimentary 15 minute foot massage. Within hours, the entire staff was aware of the slip and we had ice delivered to our room and free room service for dinner, as he was not up for walking all the way from Bure 14. I filled out an incident report, and after asking, Patricia agreed to move us to a closer bure, which was bure 2 with a plunge pool. We enjoyed having the pool outside, so my husband and I could relax by our pool, him in the lounge chair with his ankle elevated and iced for three days. They also had a pair of crutches on hand which helped as his sprain improved. The day before we left, my husband was able to get up and we took out the Hobie cat, snorkelled and relaxed by the main pool. Every time we passed a staff member, they asked how he was doing. We did not do any of the planned excursions other than an off-shore fishing trip, where unfortunately we did not catch anything after four hours of trolling. Overall, we left relaxed, well-rested, and happy to have spent the end of our honeymoon in such a beautiful, tropical paradise. We loved the beach side breakfast and dinner, and had a great time at Teppanyaki on our last night. We would absolutely recommend Tokoriki for a romantic honeymoon or getaway. Thank you Tokoriki! Special thanks to: Neamaia, Noa, Salu, Kris, Sam, Tusi, Will, Priya, Freddy, Joshua and Ala
Tokoriki is the ultimate in relaxation and romance! My partner and I came here for the second time for our honeymoon and stayed in Villa 7. The room is breathtaking, pristine, sunny and extremely private with your own plunge pool, loungers and shaded day bed. The food was always delicious and beautifully presented with many options to choose from. My partner and I did the private beach picnic one day with lunch and champagne - it was incredible! Would like to make a special mention to the amazing staff, and a huge thank you especially to Kris, Ala and Sam. So so friendly and welcoming, always greeting us by our names and making us feel so well looked after. After visiting Fiji for so many years, we are so glad we tried out Tokoriki as this is now the only place in Fiji we will ever visit again. We already can’t wait to go back - thank you so much to the Tokoriki team! Sophie and Chase
We have been to Fiji many times and have just discovered Tokoriki. Tokoriki is a must when visiting Fiji and only 15min by heli direct from the airport to an amazing landing pad on the ocean. The resort is perfectly maintained and the staff are so happy and offer very attentive hospitality. Food is also a highlight and we met the Chef who grew up in Fiji and went abroad to Vietnam for a few years. We loved the flavours and freshness of his food and different dishes daily to choose from. Try the teppanyaki too it’s a lot of fun and only seats 4 couples so book straight away when you arrive. Thanks to Kris in the restaurant and big Joe in the bar you are amazing and we will be back for sure!
We stayed at the Tokoriki island resort at the beginning of our honeymoon. It’s a resort that combines natural beauty of this island in Fiji and outmost luxury. They upgraded us to a beach villa with private pool at our arrival. The staff and the manager Patricia were super kind and helpful. They do everything to make guests feel great.
Overall, it's a lovely location. It's a very relaxing place, but the cost is not justified. We splurged for our honeymoon with a week at Tokoriki, but the luxury price did not come with much luxury. While it was nice, it did not meet our expectations. There is a lot of room for improvement. We stayed for 7 days, which was too long. I wish we only stayed for 4 or 5 days and checked out another part of Fiji instead. Room/Accomodation - 3/5 rating We stayed in Bure 3, a beachfront bure with a pool. I would not recommend bures 1-4. They are close to the the pool/restaurant which means you are close to most of the noise and activity. We also chose Tokoriki to relax and every day we were disturbed by non stop hammering. They were working on the dock, and I understand they are trying to improve for the future, but it was very disruptive especially considering that our bure was so close to the dock. Our view of the ocean was obstructed by Hobie Cat sails, boats, and board storage. The deck was nice with 2 loungers and a private pool which was great for a quick dip to cool off. The bathroom included a double sink and plenty of counter space. We only used the outdoor shower since we enjoyed it so much. The bathroom overall could use an upgrade, it was a little worn and very basic. The bure was spacious decorated with basic Fiji design with tile floors and wood furnishings. While I understand there is no wifi in room for a reason, after a week without it, I don't think I would opt for a hotel with no in room wifi. It became inconvenient to head to the lobby any time we needed to check up on things. The room had A/C, which was essential to escape the heat. We did enjoy the in room coffee supplies and mini fridge to keep cold water on hand. Cleanliness did not meet expectations. The first night we noticed blood stains on the sheets. We notified the housekeeper and asked for fresh sheets. We also found 2 dead cockroaches on the ground. When you pay over $700 per night, you don't expect cockroaches. Overall, the housekeeping was sub par. They did not automatically restock toiletries and towels, you had to ask. Plus, the first few days the water in the bathroom sink was coming out discolored. We asked and they confirmed the water is clean and safe to use. Spa - 4/5 rating We did enjoy the unlimited 3 day massage package. We really liked Shailene, the massage therapist. While most of the girls did a good job, there was one that was not good. Unfortunately, my husband and I each got her once and she just did not have the same skill level as the other therapists. While I would recommend the unlimited massage package, I would skip the pedicure. It was done while lying down, which was strange. Food/Restaurant - 3/5 rating The food was similar to something you'd find on a Holland America cruiseline in the Caribbean. It was good, but not great. There was some rotation of dishes, but after being there for a week it grew tiresome. I also have some dietary restrictions (no gluten and dairy) and while they did their best to accommodate, it did limit my options. Also, one night they mistakenly served me gluten, running to my table only after eating most of the dish to tell me that they served it to me by accident. Be aware that meal times take a long time. On Fiji time, you may have to wait an hour to be fed. The slow service was frustrating at times when water glasses were empty. Also, the food often arrived and it was not hot. It did improve slightly once the head chef was back on the island. We only ate breakfast one time, being that we weren't that impressed with the breakfast options, we chose to make coffee in our room and eat protein bars the rest of the days. I do recommend the Teppanaki dinner as it was nice to switch it up from the normal menu and fun to connect with other guests. Be aware that the Teppanaki does take a long time. You start at 7:30p, but don't get done until 10:30p. Staff/Customer Service - 4/5 rating The staff is very friendly and try to make it a personal experience. Everyone you come across says "bula bula." We most enjoyed Kris, Ala, and Mita. They were always offering up their big smiles and helpful attitude. I could do without the nightly singing of the "good bye" song at dinnertime. The staff didn't always seem too enthused to sing it either. The welcome song when you get in and good bye song on your departure is enough, the dinner song just isn't necessary night after night. Activities - 3/5 rating We did enjoy the complimentary activities of sailing on the Hobie Cats, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, hiking, table tennis, and snorkeling. We didn't opt for any of the extra paid activities as they didn't appeal to our interests. The pool was lovely, but it could use more loungers in the shade. The nightly activities could also use a refresh, crab racing just isn't that exciting to do twice in one week.
We stayed on Tokoriki from 28 NOV-01 DEC to celebrate a milestone birthday. We received a room upgrade to a private Villa which had a private pool and direct beach access. The quality of the Villa and of the grounds were immaculate. We dined at the restaurant for lunches and dinners, selecting meals from the a la cart menu. The standard of the food was truly incredible. The presentation and taste of each dish was amazing and the food was a standout aspect for us during our stay. The staff even organised a birthday cake and sang a Fijian Happy Birthday. It has to be said that aside from the aforementioned highlights, it is the service of the team that makes this resort shine. Each and every staff member treated you like a family member rather than a hotel guest - going to exceptional efforts to ensure you were made to feel welcomed, comfortable and looked after. Remembering our names each time we encountered a member of this wonderful island family is testament to how far they go to make you feel at home. We would like to pay a particular mention to Patrice the Sales & Marketing Manager who greeted us on day one and continued to check-in with us throughout our stay to ensure we had everything we needed and more! We must also mention Kris at the resort's restaurant who was the kindest, most beautiful lady to greet us each timed we dined and was truly interested in our holiday experience. Thank you to Patrice and the ENTIRE Tokoriki Island Resort family for an unforgettable experience. It will be exceptionally hard to find a resort that matches this level of service and quality anywhere - and we have stayed at hotels and resorts throughout the Fijian islands. We will be back. Travis & James
Just as wonderful as all the other reviews suggest. It was worth the expense and the splurge for the helicopter in/out. We were happy with the meal plan, although is a lot of food and we didn’t always have each course. As others mention, drinks - including non-alcoholic are expensive - plan ahead for these expenses and avoid the surprise (menus with prices are on their website). I did 3-day all inclusive massage package - had two hour-long massages a day with 4 different practitioners and each were great. The spa is beautiful and relaxing. We made use of the daily, free snorkeling adventures and kayaks to our own snorkeling spots. Definitely make the short, mild hike to the sunrise lookout (sunrise, sunset, and other times) - we did this nearly daily for the exercise and views. Resort is LGBTQ friendly as represented by their guests and staff. A note that we weren’t aware of until we arrived: Fiji culture is not to tip. The resort has a “kitty” that guests may add to that is divided among all staff twice a year. Consider bringing along cash to contribute (we brought very little cash with us to island, and found out too late that we could pull out cash at reception against our credit card on file).
Tokoriki Island Resort is by far the best we have been to and we have travelled the world. This is a luxurious and relaxing island paradise. The highlight was all the team working there. We arrived as guests and left as family. The customer service is superb and team really looked after all our needs. The band boys were very special and serenaded us on our last night of ocean front dining where my fiancé proposed over a beautiful meal. The food is really worth what you pay for. The chef comes with international experience and the variety of food is to die for as is the selection of wines!!! The rooms are divine and the grounds, pool and ocean are just magnificent!! There is a couple that have visited the island over 50 times and I can certainly understand. We will certainly return to stay again. If you are looking for a paradise oasis to truly rest and rejuvenate in a beautiful and prestige island. Tokoriki island resort is the place to stay!!!
