We stayed at the Garden Island Resort from the 12th to 17th August (six nights). Both myself and my partner have travelled around the world and stayed in many places. Garden Island Resort has been our favourite to date! It felt like we gained a new family. Claudia the resort manager was amazing. She welcomed us with open arms and...

We were part of a group (24) who booked this dive resort a year in advance. In that time the management changed and while we had, for the most part, a very good time, it seemed that we were being nickled and dimed to death! The package was to be "all inclusive" yet, the night dive that was scheduled, suddendly...

Thank you for taking time to write such a thorough review, and we're glad to hear you enjoyed the warm Fijian hospitality. Regarding the costings, please note that some of the activities were not included in the dive package for your group and therefore additional costs would be incurred.

Our stay at Garden Island Resort was very pleasant and enjoyable. There weren't too many guests during our stay but the staff were quite attentive and the management was always on site to ask how we were doing. Our room was just beautiful and the view was fantastic. The food was good although a bit pricey.

We were on our honeymoon and were staying at another resort-overly priced and not what we expected! It did not have the at home feeling, that we had the instant that we arrived to Garden Island Resort!

Garden Island Resort is located only 5 minutes from the Rainbow Reef and that is traveling in a large dive boat. You suit up on shore; take the little boat to the dive boat where your equipment is waiting. By the time you get the weights in your BCD and de-fogger on your mask, you are at the dive site....

I stayed at Garden Island over spring break and loved every moment of it. The resort itself is beautiful and spotlessly clean, the rooms are homey and comfortable, and I got to wake every morning to a beautiful ocean sunrise.
