This was our fourth visit to Plantation Island, and despot Checkin issues on three of the four occasions, once sorted we settled in for family fun. We take the family to Fiji, to catch up and share time with all our adult babies, their loves and our grandbabies. We always get beachfront bures next to each other so that the...

When you first arrive stick with the host until you get the lay of the land. The place is big and you will want to know where all the basic facilities are early on. Beach side bungalow was great (214); clean, modern (renovated) and near the waters edge. Not great facilities in it with 1 teaspoon! Beds are very hard...

Beautiful island is what you expect going to a island and this is what you get. rooms are large very basic pools are poor food is poor with not many options breakfast is poor over all way overpriced for what they offer and would be better option to camp on the island.

A Great Place to base yourself to visit for a few days. It is quite far from mainland so they make up for it with plenty of activities. Our little one spent some time in the kids club so that was good to have some mum and dad time. The Tours you had to book in advance as they booked...

We stayed 5 nights here in a garden bure in March. We had originally booked all of our 19 night holiday here. Due to many reviews , mostly from returnees we changed to 5 nights and 14 nights on the mainland. We have been to Fiji many times but not to an island to stay. I think we made the...

Some people attend resorts with unrealistic inflated expectations and without doing enough due diligence investigating what the resort 'specialises' in. Here's where I think frustrated reviews are born. Plantation offers the most friendly hard working staff, beautiful beaches and very kid friendly entertainment and activities. It's a perfect balance between value (relative to 4 stars) and notable facilities. Yes, the...

Plantation Island Resort potentially offers so much but doesn’t always deliver on expectations for a great holiday. We stayed 9 days from 24 March. This was our 4th visit. On previous occasions we had travelled with our children but this time we travelled as an adult couple. The best things about PIR are its location, beaches, water clarity, swimming, and...

I recently visited plantation island with my wife, daughter and her partner , overall the resort exceeded my expectations, there were so many free activities (windsurfers catamarans paddle boards and kayaks ) plus throw in the snorkelling off the beach it's a beach lovers paradise. For food there are also heaps of options, the dinner buffet changed theme daily ,...

We found that not buying the pre-purchase meals was a good choice. Be sure to check out the activities immediately on arrival, and book down your names as places are limited. The use of the sailing boat and windsurfer is quite limited to high tides only during 8am - 4pm. The rooms have no view with the air-con on which...

Bula Damian Thank you for your thoughts and comments, although I am a little confused on some points. Wi-fi is available in all Bures, and currently sea lice not an issue although is sometimes are prevalent. All water-sports are available only at high tides so the enjoyment of these is sometimes restricted by nature unfortunately. Vinaka Ross Greenaway General Manager
