“Perfect in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2013

We just spent 8 Fantastic days at Coconut Grove. We fell in love with the beautiful Banana Bure which is right on the beach and has a lovely hammock right in front. The beach is lovely and the is great snorkelling near the islands in front of the Resort. Our Bure was kept spotless and we really appreciated the jugs of cold, filtered water in our room. Our king size bed was so comfortable. There are loungers on the deck of the Bure overlooking the ocean. This place is very special and I cannot recommend it highly enough. They organized tours for us as we'll as diving. The Great White Wall on Rainbow Reef was incredible. A big thank-you to Ronna and her wonderful Staff. We miss you!!

Room Tip: Go for the Banana Bure!

We stayed a week at Coconut Grove, it was worth it just for the lovely home cooked food, let alone the scenery, wonderful people, super-comfortable Mango bure with a king-size bed and romantic outdoor shower, and marvelous snorkeling on the world famous Rainbow reef. We were glad that we chose the meal plan so we had no qualms about trying just about everything on the vast menu. I think we got spoiled a little as there always seemed to be something just a little special for us. But maybe they treat everyone that way! All the other guests were just as thrilled as we were, some of them had been waiting for years to book time at Coconut Grove. We booked 9 months ahead, just to make sure we could stay there.

Room Tip: Mango bure is the biggest, but all were lovely with the ocean just steps away.

We had a very relaxing holiday while being spoiled by the Staff at Coconut Grove Beachfront Cottages on the Island of Taveuni in Northern Fiji. Ronna and her staff took very good care of us. The cottage was well decorated, clean and very comfortable and the view from the deck was outstanding. The food was delicious. The massage treatments were excellent. There were only three cabins, so it was very quiet and super relaxing. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Pick the Mango Bure.

We have stayed at Coconut Grove many times. The views are spectacular, so close to the beach, the bures are all really nice, food is great and the staff is wonderful. Fresh veggies from the garden and real home cooking. Very warm, friendly ambiance and very relaxing.

Room Tip: Bure down on the beachfront is the quietest

First, look at the ratings for this place…at the time of this review Coconut Grove has 366 reviews and 338 are Excellent. That should be your first sign to book here. That is why my wife and I booked and we did not regret it.

Second, read the reviews. I am not sure I can add much to what is written, but, you will see every positive superlative possible in the other reviews.

Third, my review:

The Staff

I am going to lead off with the best part of the entire stay, the staff. I cannot describe how nice, welcoming, and personable the staff is – everyone on the staff from Ronna to the gardeners. Before landing in Fiji, my wife and I could only think of how great it would be to lay on the beach, and have a dreamed up Fijian vacation. Now, when someone asks about Fiji we talk about how nice the people were and forget to mention other tropical details.

The Food

The place has amazing food (they even stored my wife’s lasagna overnight in the fridge so I could eat it cold for breakfast the next morning – I know that you may not like cold lasagna for breakfast, but, that is a personal touch that is not possible in a large resort). I hate fish and ate the fish 4 out of 5 nights we stayed there.

The Room

We stayed in the Mango Bure (the Bure closest to the lodge) and the room was perfect. It was private despite being close to the lodge and perhaps most importantly it was immaculate. As a plus, it also has a ceiling fan which helped to keep the air moving and made it comfortable to sleep in.

The Activities

My wife and I are not very “beachy” people so we were worried about what we could do to fill the time. Do not worry – We visited the international date line, the Wairiki Church (the choir is pretty cool to hear and I do not enjoy church choirs), did the Lavena coastal walk to a waterfall and kayaked back, and went snorkeling twice. The activities were amazing and the best part was is that it was all arranged by Coconut Grove. No hassles and they even packed a lunch when you needed it. I need to repeat – no hassles – they took care of everything.

The Intangibles

If you have made it this far you probably realize that I am very enthusiastic about Coconut Grove. My Wife and I take an international vacation for about a month every summer and have stayed in a wide range of hotels – from hostels to luxury resorts. Coconut Grove is the best hotel we have stayed at in our travels. It felt like staying with family – but family that takes care of your every need.

Room Tip: There are only 3 rooms and they all are great!

Stayed at Cocunut Grove for 6 nights and Aroha Taveuni for 7 nights. We enjoyed our stay at the Coconut Grove. The staff are excellent. They are very professional and beautiful people. We stayed in two different bures and they were both well appointed with a Fijian feel. Having windows/screens on all four sides of the bures allowed for good air movement which was appreciated with the hot nights. The meals were also very good and dining on the deck with the view was tough to beat. Aroha Taveuni is a first class property and much better value.

This quiet, private, affordable luxury resort is unique and precious, with breathtaking views of islands; expansive, clear skies decorated with delightful white clouds and sparkling seas amid swaying coconut palms. It has a relaxing and welcoming ambience, great food and a friendly, quality staff. The best part for me is that it is located right on the beach front...if you like that sort of thing. Expect no hectic, crowded-city noises; just the relaxing sounds of gentle waves washing upon the shore and birds singing. A few steps and you are lounging or strolling about in the soft, golden sand or soaking, snorkling or swimming about happily in the healing, mineral-rich sea water. Watching the sun rise from the ocean every morning is a treat in itself; as is star gazing and walks on the beach in the soothing, romantic moonlight, where the world falls away and love is gently persuaded to bloom more and more. I hope everyone has a chance to treat themselves to a stay in this earthly heaven. It's everything you would wish for from a vacation in Fiji, and more.

Room Tip: The 3 rooms or bures, as they are called in Fiji, meaning separate, small cabins..are all clean, spa...
