“Exquisite and divine in every way!”
Reviewed 16 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

he location is heavenly - the beach is on the doorstep, the local produce grown on the property is delicious, the property itself is so peaceful and nurturing. Honestly, the property is just bliss.
Mahesh and Monica are the perfect hosts. Their fresh and super-tasty meals - every single one of them and just when we thought they had outdone themselves, something else would come out and blow us away!

There were 11 of us staying at the property for a yoga retreat and they did everything to accommodate all of us, including massages, day tours, night events with music and even a little dancing. Just awesome and can't wait to get back to this beautiful island.

“Exceeded expectations”

A group of 11 friends stayed at the Korovesi Resort as part of a Yoga retreat. From the initial greeting from Mahesh at the airport to the farewell 8 days later - the service and experience was truly exceptional.
Mahesh and his wife Monica- manage Korovesi as if they were the owners. All meals prepared by Monica were truly 5 star restaurant standard as was the attention to the overall dining experience. Supported by Captain Jack - who was our "on water tour guide" - we visited one of the most amazing unihabited deserted islands I have ever been to- only accessible by boat at low tide (See pic).
So.....if you are looking for a genuine Fijian experience at one of the most picturesque locations in the world with oustanding service delivered by authentic , warm people - look no further than Korovesi Resort with your amazing hosts Monica & Mahesh.

I was lucky enough to attend a yoga retreat at Vila Korovesi. What a perfect place to unwind from the stressors of life and practice yoga for a week. Namaste!
Monica, Mahesh, Captain Jack, Valerie, other kitchen staff and little Sugar (family dog) went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. We truly felt like we were part of the family.
Monica and the kitchen staff spoilt us with their beautiful cooking. Even making me a yummy birthday cake!
I can't thank you all enough for looking after us.
Already planning my next holiday

Amazing holiday, amazing staff, amazing food. We booked the villa for our yoga retreat and couldn't of been happier. We were so well looked after. Taken out on the boat for snorkling whenever we wanted. Heart felt thanks to Monica & Mahesh.

“STUNNING VIEWS and AMAZING FOOD”
Reviewed 5 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Awesome house that has been thoughtfully designed. The breathtaking view surrounding the villa was magical and perfectly peaceful. The true brilliance of this villa is the staff. They accommodated us perfectly with all our varied dietary needs. Every meal was presented with such pride and attention to detail. We loved it so much we requested a cooking class to which Monica the chef was only to happy to oblige us. The boat trip out to 'shyguy' island was insanely good... the water was picture perfect turquoise in color contrasted by the brilliant white sand and snorkeling around the reef was a gift. Mahesh and his beautiful wife Monica pour their love and devotion into the property which made our stay feel even more special. Without hesitation I would return to stay at this villa. Thank you to Gavin and his family for capturing paradise and sharing it with the rest of us. Yay to you!

“Perfect family (and friends) holiday!”
Reviewed 14 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Normally I would be nervous about putting a bunch of adults and kids in a house together for 5 days but Korovesi Villa accommodated us all beautifully and it was one of the best holidays we've had. 6 adults and 3 kids were able to happily and comfortably hang out together - swimming, snorkelling, fishing, reading, drawing, playing games, even working - and generally doing our own thing when we felt like it but also taking off on little excursions as a group each day and organised superbly by Mahesh and Jack. Activities included a boat trip to the reef, another to the sandy atoll that appears only at low tide where we pitched a tent and spent a few hours snorkelling, a fishing expedition with a catch of trevally and tuna that was presented to us for dinner that night as well as a trip by boat to the markets in town on Saturday morning. Together with the wonderful meals provided by Monica and her team, including lovo night and a special celebration with a local Fijian troupe - it was truly a memorable stay for all of us. I've spent a lot of time in Fiji but I can honestly say that this was one of the best - we all felt totally spoilt, everything was managed so beautifully by Mahesh and Monica - I can't fault it and would highly recommend it to a group of friends or family or both! It feels like your own private luxury resort only better because it is a more authentic experience. The only regret is we didn't stay longer!

“The Epitome of Upscale Luxury with a Incredibly Warm Family Atmosphere”
Reviewed 29 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We had such an incredible trip, I had to put together a video to remember our holiday at Korovesi! Check it out on my youtube channel. (I can't post external links).

YouTube Name: dignan88 - Video Title: Korovesi Villa 2017

Our group of 11, which was comprised of 3 families, 6 adults and 5 children (aged 9 mos to 8 yrs), set off with excitement to finally stay at Korovesi Villa after nearly 3 years of trying to find a schedule that worked for all of us. With 2 solid weeks of school holidays locked in, we escaped the chill of Wellington winter for Fiji warmth and relaxation.

We all looked forward to renting this beautiful house, and had heard about the wonderful staff that helps out at Korovesi. But what we found blew us all away, day in and day out. Of course the villa and location are second to none, but the experience that Mahesh, Monica, Captain Jack, and the family at Korovessi provide is what elevates this experience above and beyond anything you will find elsewhere. I hesitate to use the word "staff" or "team" because they all become your family while there, and you feel you are being hosted by a wonderful family into their home, their culture, and their lives.

Of course you have your space, freedom, and privacy as needed and required, but the generosity, care, and attention, as well as the inclusiveness and warmth that the Korovesi Family offers is something I have only ever experienced when going to a close friend's or family member's home.

And that is what you will find here - a short term family. But I suspect your bonds like ours, both with your travel group and with the folks at Korovesi, will last much longer than your stay. We already consider Mahesh, Monica everyone else at Korovesi as friends and will surely remain in touch.

Of course I can list of the wonderful experiences and activities as others have, and none should be overlooked. Mahesh will help organize anything needed with incredible ease. From fishing (every catch was the biggest fish any of us have ever caught, and you will catch a lot, that is if you listen to Captain Jack: the fishing secret weapon), to snorkeling, boat tours (Rent the boat for your whole stay - trust us!), waterfall frolicking, beach and island visits, or just lounging round the pool, and making cocktails with Mahesh and Monica, the itinerary is full and thoroughly enjoyable
