My wife and I came to the Garden Island Resort for 5 days and dove for 4 days at the end of May. First off the fact that upon arriving to the Resort the entire staff and management were there to greet us and sang the "Bula" song was incredible. As we checked in the staff brought our bags to...

My husband and I stayed at Garden Island for 11 days in May and had a terrific time. The diving was spectacular and we were lucky enough to have the right conditions to dive Great White Wall, Annie's Bombing, Cabbage Patch, The Zoo, Fish Factory, The Corner, The Ledge, Rainbow's End and the Yello Tunel. We saw sharks, manta rays...

Brilliant location, rooms were clean and they had magnificent showers. The staff is amazing and as are the diving trips. Nothing can describe the incredible diving experiences you have here. one note though: the food is not great - very average breakfasts/lunches and dinners. Then again you dont usually come here for the food..:)

We returned from Taveuni, Fiji just over a month ago and I can highly recommend this resort. The food, staff, and facilities are just great and I have no complaints. During our stay, there were some tropical depressions hampering return flights back to the US, Australia, and New Zealand but we found the management, Phil & Mark, more than helpful...
