“brilliant - without rugrats”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

I first went to Colo-i-Suva back in 1999 when the huts had just been put in, and it was a pretty amazing place to while away the weekend - which we did a lot of!

it's a bit run down now, i wouldn't be having too many picnics in the old pagodas, or eating off the old tables, but the attraction is the rainforest, and the pools - and for this, it's a gem!

a couple of cautionary notes: don't leave valuables in the car, take additional precautions if you're going in a small group and let people know where you're going, think twice about personal safety if you're planning on going by yourself, and consider carefully if you're planning on taking your small kids - the tracks are long and can be very slippery, and the water areas are - rainforestie - so you'll spend most of your time making sure the kids are ok, and not enough time enjoying the incredible natural surrounds!

but, for a really great day away from Suva, grab some beers, grab some food, grab your swimmers, grab a 4WD, grab a couple of dollars for the entry fee ($1 per person), and make sure you get some decent 4WDing in before you head down to the pools for a bunch of swinging off high ropes into beautiful cool pools - well worth it, and if you can't be bothered taking your own sustenance, after your swim head to the Raintree Lodge which is almost opposite the entrance, and is a fantastic experience in itself.

“One of the coolest places in Fiji”
Reviewed 22 May 2012

My guess is that most tourists don't make it to Suva which is where Colo-i-Suva is. But if you do, going to this park is a must. I was there 20 years ago and it's better than I even remember. They have done a good job protecting and maintaining the park. 20 years ago there was no charge to get it. Now you pay a minimal fee that is well worth it. I highly recommend this place.

“Cooling atmosphere”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Nice to escape the warm weather of Suva and great to expirience the Rainforest. For very cheap money you can take long walks through the woods. You can get there perfectly by the local bus calls Colo I Suva. You need good shoes because it can get quite slippery and wet. If you are alone you can ask one of the guards to guide you.

“great day out! for everyone!!!”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

We went here with some friends we met at our hotel... long drive from pacific harbour and not easy to find! but totally worth the drive.
The forest is so beatiful and the lakes are so clear. the big lake with the rope swing is great! I did it once and was so scared but worth it. If u dont fancy it, just watching the locals use it is amazing... there so much bravery!
Not many tourists, and mostly locals who were all so lovely and lauhging and having a great time aswelll... bring a picnic and relax by some wonderful, clear lake.
A bit of a walk from the car park and to find a nice quite lake but worth it... not a great walk for anyone with problems walking or maybe younger kids tho.
