Best Family Resorts Fiji Map

Below is a map where you can see the top Fiji resorts for kids, which are covered in this guide. Zoom in and out for a closer view.  Keep reading below for details on reach resort.



Best Family Island – Fiji

While Fiji is made up of some 330 islands, only 110 of them are permanently inhabited.  However, that still gives you a huge range of islands to consider when on your family holidays in Fiji.  While most people don’t venture any further than Viti Levu, where you’ll find the bustling town of Nadi and popular resort areas like Denarau Island and the Coral Coast, there are other islands well worth considering.

This section covers some of the more popular islands of Fiji, so you can determine which island is best for your family getaway.  This section in no way covers all of the Fiji islands, just some of the more popular islands visited by families.  

While it certainly takes a little more effort, time and money to visit islands, it is well worth it.  You might even want to consider a bit of an island hopping holiday, so you get to experience more than one island on your holidays with kids in Fiji.

Viti Levu

Image Credit: Tourism Fiji

For most families visiting Fiji, you will probably fly into Viti Levu.  The airport is not too far from the town of Nadi and the resort area of Denarau Island.  Denarau Island is a tiny man made island accessible via a bridge and is well known for its strip of fancy 5 star hotels.  This area is particularly appealing to families with young children wanting to get to their accommodation quickly due to its proximity to the airport.

Many families staying on Viti Levu head around to the Coral Coast (approximately 1-2 hours drive from Nadi), where you’ll find some of the best Fiji resorts with kids – particularly if you’re after the best resorts in Fiji with kids club.  

As well as enjoying all the facilities of the resorts, families holidaying on Viti Levu can enjoy visits to mountain villages, zipline through the jungle, go rafting through the rainforest, snorkelling, relax in hot springs and mud pools and more.

Mamanuca Islands

Best Family Resorts in Fiji

Not too far from Nadi and Denarau Island are several islands known as the Mamanuca Islands.  These stunning islands are home to gorgeous white sandy beaches, contrasted with striking blue water and some of the very best weather in Fiji.  Perhaps best known for being the location of Tom Hanks movie Castaway and one of the Survivor series, the Mamanuca Islands, is the ideal place for beach lovers.

While staying on Mamanuca Islands, families can spend their days snorkelling coral reefs, surfing world class breaks, participating in watersports and simply relaxing among the pristine tropical location.

The best places to stay in Fiji with kids on Mamanuca tend to be a little more expensive than what you’ll pay on Vita Levu, but the stunning tropical island setting more than makes up for this.

The Mamanuca Islands are an easy hour boat ride away from the Denarau Island Marina.

Yasawa Islands

Best Family Resorts in Fiji

If you’re looking for something a little more remote and less developed, then head over to the Yasawa Islands, just north of the Mamanuca Islands.  Twenty islands make up Yasawa, all of which are surrounded by beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters with every shade of blue you could possibly imagine.

For those 40+ parents, you may recall the movie Blue Lagoon, which starred Brooke Shields? Well, that movie was filmed here, so you can imagine just how pristine the location is.

Similar to Mamanuca Islands, the main activities on the Yasawa Islands are related to the water.  Go swimming or kayaking and spot marine life (mantas are regularly spotted here) or relax around your accommodation.  The aim here is to relax completely.

In terms of resorts in Fiji for kids in Yasawa, there is not as much variety as the mainland or the Mamanuca Islands.  You’ll also need to have super deep pockets for a 5 star hotel with a kids club.  The better option for families on a budget is to forgo the kids club and stay in a smaller resort on a stunning stretch of beach. 

You can reach the Yasawa Islands by speedboat (it takes a few hours) or seaplane for those wanting to splurge.

Vanua Levu

If you’re after some where to go in Fiji with kids that’s off the beaten track, then consider Vanua Levu.  Despite being the country’s second largest island, it’s not often visited by tourists, which means it’s relatively unspoilt and is perfect for those families wanting to truly escape the crowds.

Here families can venture off in search of waterfalls and hike through the rainforest, enjoying hot springs and lookouts on the way.  Other activities include 4WDing, mountain biking through the jungle, river tubing, swimming, snorkelling and diving in deserted beaches at the jungle’s edge.  There is also a farmers market you can visit in the town of Savusavu.

Despite being off the beaten track, Vanua Levu does offer some stunning accommodation.  While to afford some of this family friendly accommodation Fiji offers, you will require you to sell one of your kids; there is surprisingly some good value accommodation here.

Vanua Levu is best reached by a short flight from Suva or Nadi.  

Lomaiviti

A short 30 minute boat ride from Suva will bring you to the Lomaiviti group of islands.  This archipelago consists of seven main islands and several smaller islands.  With the lack of commercial development and authentic local atmosphere, the Lomaiviti Islands offers families the ultimate getaway.

Activities across the Lomaiviti group of islands include snorkelling and hiking through jungles, searching for secret waterfalls.  The highlight here though, is the scuba diving with the surrounding reefs home to sharks, turtles, sea snakes and thousands of fish species.

Best Fiji Resort for Kids Reviews

Below I have reviewed some of the very best Fiji holidays family accommodation, all of which offer great value for money, whether you’re after a bit of a splurge, the best Fiji island for kids, something more budget friendly or the best kids club Fiji has.  

Sheraton Fiji Resort

 

 

The Sheraton Fiji Resort is just a short 20 minute drive from the Nadi Airport, making it ideal for families wanting the best place to stay in Fiji with kids, where they can check straight into their accommodation after they land.  

The location of this resort is also excellent for those wanting a range of places to dine and shop. With its proximity to the airport and the Denarau Marina, it’s great for those needing somewhere to stay before they head to the outer Fiji Islands with kids.

For the kids staying for a while, they’ll love the on site kids club, which is complimentary for guests aged 4-12.  Called the Lai Lai Kids Club, the kids will enjoy a range of fun activities, including Fijian language classes, fish feeding, face painting and more.  Kids under 4 are welcome to join, but they will need to be accompanied by an adult.

There is a huge 1200 square metre lagoon style swimming pool that meanders through the beachfront grounds, with various areas including a dedicated family friendly area with a beautiful sandy entry and a quiet area for the adults while the kids are in the kids club.  There are plenty of day beds, pool seats and a sitting area by the pool bar.

Other activities on the property include water sports such as kayaking, SUPing, windsurfing and banana rides, Cultural Show Nights, kava tasting ceremonies and beaches for relaxing.  Guests can also visit the golf course and play tennis at the Denarau Golf and Racquet Club. Other on site amenities include a children’s playground, a day spa and four restaurants and bars to choose from.

A great benefit for guests staying at the Sheraton is that guests can also enjoy the facilities at the Sheraton Denarau Villas, the Westin Denarau Resort and Spa and as mentioned above, the Denarau Golf and Racquet Club.

This is an expansive resort, with almost 300 guest rooms and suites.  Rooms for families come with two double beds and feature a TV, air conditioning and tea and coffee making facilities.  Rollaway beds can also be arranged for a small fee.

Please note that the Sheraton is temporarily closed for renovations.

What’s to love?

The Sheraton is a stunning hotel and a great option for families after one of the excellent Fiji hotels with kids club.  

What’s not to love?

It’s extremely touristy here and you won’t get a feel for the real Fiji unless you venture away from Denarau Island.

Summary

The Sheraton is regularly considered one of the top 10 family resorts Fiji offers.  It’s ideal for families after the drop and flop type holiday, where they are surrounded by all the modern conveniences of a five star hotel. However, while it does offer families excellent facilities, for those seeking out a more authentic Fiji experience, you’ll want to venture away from Denarau Island.

Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa

 

Located just a short 2 minute walk from the Sheraton, the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa is another stunning five star resort on Denarau Island with all the bells and whistles you can imagine.  It’s one of the best Fiji resorts with kids club, for families with kids of all ages.

The Niu Kids Club is split into two age groups.  There is a kids club for kids aged 3 to 6 and then the older group for kids aged 6 to 12.  There is also an excellent area, especially for the teenagers (kids aged 12-16), complete with X-Box, PlayStation and arcade games.  This means whether you’re after the best Fiji resort for toddlers or teenagers – or maybe both – you are covered at the Sofitel.

Other on site facilities at this Fiji resort kids will love include a playground, lagoon style swimming pool, with a kids area that even includes a two story spiral waterslide!  In addition, there is a day spa, gym, three restaurants and three bars, including a beach bar and an adults only poolside bar and grill.

The Sofitel has 298 guest rooms as well as a range of luxurious suites.  All rooms have either ocean or garden views and come with a TV, wifi, air conditioning and tea and coffee making facilities  Families are best accommodated in the superior rooms, which come with two queen size beds or the family room that comes with a queen and set of bunk beds.  Complimentary breakfast is also included in the room rate.

What’s to love?

The Sofitel facilities are pretty awesome; this really is the ultimate resort for families looking for somewhere to flop and drop – you won’t’ even need to leave.  It’s also an excellent option for families with kids of all ages, considering the kids club is one of the few that caters for toddlers right through to teenagers.

What’s not to love?

The Sofitel is one of the more expensive resorts on the mainland, so unless you have toddlers or teenagers, you’ll probably get better value for money by choosing one of the other resorts listed in this guide.

Summary

While the Sofitel is one of the more expensive resorts in this guide, it does offer a few things other resorts don’t.  For example, having daily breakfast included whereas other resorts don’t and having a dedicated kids club program for children from 3 up to 16.  This makes the Sofitel well worth considering for families with kids ranging in different ages. However, for everyone else, or those on a tight budget – consider one of the other resorts in this guide.

Radisson Blu Resort Fiji

 

The Radisson Blu Resort is right next door to the Sheraton on Denarau Island.  This property is sprawled among 10 acres of tropical gardens, including picturesque waterfalls and even a private beach!  This is a fabulous resort for families – don’t believe me?  It has won the Travellers Choice Award for the best family resort four times in a row since 2016!

There are some great facilities here to keep the kids busy.  There are also four lagoon style swimming pools, including two kids pools, an adults only pool and one of which includes my favourite – a swim up bar!  There is even a whitewater tunnel slide which is fun for kids and parents alike.

The resort includes a kids club, where the kids will enjoy activities such as kid’s Olympics, art, cooking and more.  The Radisson Fiji kids’ club is available for kids aged 4 to 12, with separate programs for kids aged 4 to 7 and 8 to 12.  The kids club is open daily from 9 am to 9 pm.  For little ones 1 to 3, there is a child care centre open between 9 am to 12 pm.  Both the kids club and child care centre have an additional charge.

Other on site facilities include a playground, gym, spa, a range of water sports including kayaking and snorkelling, and access to the Denarau Island Golf and Racquet Club.  In addition, there are six restaurants and bars to choose from – including an in the water dining experience.  

Accommodation at the Radisson is offered in 270 guest rooms or one and two bedroom suites.  All rooms have views across the lagoon pool, gardens or courtyard.  Each room has been decorated in a modern Fiji style and all include a TV, free wifi, air conditioning and mini bar.  The suites also come with kitchens and laundry facilities.  Families are best accommodated in the deluxe twin rooms, which come with two double beds or suites with a king bed and sofa bed.

What’s to love?

This is a luxurious resort, with all the bells and whistles, still at a relatively good price for families. So if you’re on a budget but feel like a bit of a splurge, the Radisson is definitely it.

What’s not to love?

This is one of the more expensive resorts on the mainland and so it is a little disappointing that the kids club attracts an additional charge when so many other resorts don’t.  However, it is still fairly cheap.

Summary

The Radisson Blu is a similar hotel to the Sheraton and Sofitel previously reviewed. However, perhaps the most important difference here is that it specifically caters for kids from 1 right through to 12.  This makes it ideal for families after the best Fiji resorts for toddlers as well as older kids.  However, keep in mind that the kids club here does attract an additional rate, whereas most other resorts don’t charge for this.

Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa

 

Just a one hour drive from the Nadi Airport, the Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa is ideal for those families wanting to stay on the Coral Coast.  The resort has been inspired by a traditional Fijian village, spread across 35 acres of tropical gardens and provides some fabulous facilities, making it ideal for those after the best Fiji hotel for kids.

There are three stunning swimming pools to choose from, including an adults only pool which is great for when the kids are in the kids club.  Other facilities include a gym, spa, steam room, even an ice room!  Plus, there is an 18 hole golf course and three restaurants on site.  There is also a range of activities guests can join, such as yoga, cooking classes and sporting games.

The Intercontinental Fiji kids club, called Planet Trekkers, is designed for children aged from 4 to 12 years of age.  The groups are split into two age groups, being 4-7 and 8-12.  Children under 4 are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.  Kids club runs three sessions per day, 9.30 am to 1.30 pm, 2 pm to 6 pm and 6.30 pm to 10.30 pm.  The first session includes lunch and the last two sessions include dinner.  There is a charge for the kids club.

In addition to these activities for the little ones, there are daily activities organised for teenage children.  These activities include things like putt putt, beach football, cricket, volleyball and more.

Accommodation is provided in 266 guest rooms with either garden, pool, beach or lagoon views.  All rooms include a TV, minibar, air conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities and extra large luxurious bathtubs.  Standard rooms come with two large beds and are spacious, making them ideal for families.

What’s to love?

The Intercontinental provides plenty of activities and facilities for everyone to enjoy.  They also offer fantastic, spacious accommodation for families – even in their standard rooms.

What’s not to love?

The kids club isn’t included in your accommodation and does cost extra.  However, it’s not too badly priced, particularly given a meal is included.

Summary

The Intercontinental is a fantastic resort for families wanting to stay on the Coral Coast.  While it’s far cheaper than the previous resorts reviewed located in Denarau Island, it is more expensive than the following Coral Coast resorts.  However, the accommodation is really good value, with so much room for a family, even in a standard room.  Plus, there are so many great facilities on offer for everyone – although do keep in mind that the additional charge for the kids club could soon add up should your kids spend a lot of time there.

Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort

 

Located on the beautiful Coral Coast, the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort is a five star resort sprawled across 40 acres.  Despite its five star status, the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort is by far one of the cheapest resorts listed in this guide, making it a great option to consider for families on a tight budget.

The Outrigger really is a stunning resort, full of lush greenery, spilling out across the clear waters of the lagoon. Facilities on site include a large lagoon style family friendly swimming pool as well as an adult only pool with a swim up bar.  Plus there are water sports, gym, spa and eight restaurants and bars.  Guests can also use free kayaks and snorkelling equipment, join in cultural activities and enjoy Fijian entertainment and demonstrations.

While many kids clubs are only for kids up to 12, the Outrigger kids club is for kids aged 3, right up to teenagers.  The kids club is split into three groups – Little Riggers for those aged 3 to 7, Beach Riggers for kids aged 8 to 12 and then a group for the teens.  It’s free for those 12 and under, but the teen activities come with a nominal fee.  While the younger kids will enjoy all your standard kid’s club activities such as water fun, craft and games, the older kids will enjoy special hikes and tours – including a tour to the local high school.  For children under 3, there is also a nanny service available.

There is a range of accommodation offered at the Outrigger, from traditional bures or modern guest rooms.  All rooms are furnished with a Fijian theme and include a TV, air conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities.  Most rooms come with two double beds, or for larger families, there is also the option of a bedroom bure which sleeps eight people.

What’s to love?

Awesome for those after cheap Fiji holidays with kids.  If you’re looking for a resort with it all at the very best price, then the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort is for you!  It’s also fantastic that this resort caters for kids right up to teenagers, making it the best place to go in Fiji with kids of all ages.

What’s not to love?

It’s rather difficult to fault this resort – it really just offers so much.  However, like most resorts on the Coral Coast, the resort is somewhat isolated.

Summary

For families on a tight budget but wanting to provide their family with the full Fiji resort experience, then you can’t go past the Outrigger.  There is just so much to do here; it’s hard to imagine anyone getting bored here.  It also caters to kids right up to teenagers, so it is ideal for families of kids of all ages.

The Naviti Resort

 

The Naviti Resort is another excellent resort to consider for families wanting the very best value for money without compromising on a thing. This Coral Coast resort offers families exceptional value for money while providing a great kids club and amazing facilities to keep everyone entertained.

Perched alongside golden sandy beaches and sprawled across 38 acres of lush green gardens, the four star Naviti Resort is one of the all inclusive family holidays Fiji resort, which means everything is included from the moment you arrive. In addition, families have a choice of four different restaurants to dine at, so you’ll never get bored with the food choices on offer.

What’s to love?

The Naviti Resort offers fantastic value for money, including all meals, great facilities and a kids club.  An excellent option for parents after the best Fiji holidays with kids without having to think too much after you book your accommodation.

What’s not to love?

An all inclusive resort isn’t for everybody – I personally don’t like to feel like I have to eat only in the resort I’m staying at.  But for others, this is very convenient and does offer great value for money.  It’s an excellent contender for the best resort for kids in Fiji – particularly for those on a budget.

Summary

For families looking for the sort of holiday where they don’t even need to leave their accommodation, the Naviti Resort is well priced.  Given its all inclusive, it really does offer fantastic value for money.

Shangri-La Fijian Resort and Spa

 

The Shangri-La is located on the Coral Coast, an hour’s drive from the Nadi Airport and just 20 minutes west of the Outrigger Resort.    Well, actually it is situated on Yanuca Island, a private island, which is connected to the mainland by a bridge.  It is an expansive resort, spread out across a huge 44 hectares, with direct access to pristine sandy beaches and beautiful coral reefs.

The Shangri-La Resort has long been a favourite among families and considering all the wonderful facilities on offer; it’s no wonder why!  I mean, what other resort in Fiji has its very own inflatable water park!  Actually, I stand corrected – the Plantation Island Resort also has one – see below.

The Shangri-La is well known for providing a stellar kids club!  The kids club is available for kids aged 2 to 12, although kids under four will require an adult to accompany them.  Activities the kids will enjoy at the Shangri La Fiji kids club include time in the pool, playing on the beach, time in the playground and all the usual kids club activities.  The kids are split into two groups, 4-6 and 7-12, to ensure programs are age appropriate.

Other on site facilities include three swimming pools (including an adults only pool) and free non motorised water sports such as kayaking, snorkelling, windsurfing and catamarans.  There is also a nine hole course on site and tennis courts, basketball courts, a day spa, gym, five restaurants and three bars, all with a gorgeous waterfront location.  The property is also surrounded by a deep coral lagoon, which is perfect for swimming at any time of the day.

The resort has 442 ocean view rooms, which feature a TV, wifi, ceiling fans and tea and coffee making facilities.  Most rooms come with a king bed and a single bed or sofa bed.

What’s to love?

An inflatable water park!  What!!!! – Seriously, how much are the kids going to love this.  There are some super great activities for the whole family to enjoy at the Shangri-La Resort.

What’s not to love?

Not a lot, there are so many great things about this resort.  Probably one thing is that the kids club only goes up to age 12; mind you, there is plenty to do for the older kids anyway.

Summary

If you have kids prone to saying “I’m bored” while on holiday, then the Shangri-La Resort is probably where you should consider staying.  There are just so many fun things to do here.  Plus, being on a private island, you have the bonus of being completely surrounded by a coral reef and every single room offering ocean views.

Castaway Island

 

Located on one of the outer islands of the Mamanuca archipelago, Castaway Island is the place to go for families wanting a little bit of a splurge.  This resort and island are just stunning, sprawled across a beautiful beach, within a gorgeous setting; this island really is worth saving up for just that little longer.

Accommodation on Castaway is provided in 65 rooms, decorated in a modern Fijian style.  While rooms are more than comfortable, this place is designed for pure relaxation, so you won’t find a TV or wifi in the rooms. However, wifi is provided in some of the common areas of the resort.  Most rooms come with a king bed and two singles to accommodate a family.  For larger families, there is also the three bedroom family beach bure which sleeps up to 10 people.

If being on a tropical island wasn’t enough, Castaway Island also has its own kids club to entertain the little ones.  This kids club is for kids aged from 3 and is open daily from 9 am to 4.00 pm and with an evening session from 5.30 pm to 10 pm.  Activities are fairly relaxed, matching the chilled out environment and include things like sandcastle building, pool games, kids games on the beach and making things from coconuts.

Other facilities on site include two swimming pools, including one with a spa and swim up pool, free non motorised water sports, and you can even go snorkelling.  Other water activities include kayaking, SUPing and diving.  You can also join group activities, such as beach volleyball, tennis, cooking and more, and a range of special cultural activities.

For dining, there are four restaurants to choose from, as well as meal plans available.

What’s to love?

The stunning secluded island setting.  You will absolutely be pinching yourself on arrival.  Having a kids club open until 10 pm gives the parents plenty of time to have a nice romantic dinner or two while still having one of the best family holidays Fiji offers.

What’s not to love?

It is much pricer than all the other island resorts in this guide – but still, for its stunning location, it really is worth the splurge if you can stretch the budget, even if for just a few nights.

Summary

If you’re looking for that extra special island location, somewhere to really spoil your family, then Castaway Island is well worth considering.  It really is a paradise setting, where you will feel a million miles from your day to day life.  In addition to being a stunning location, the resort also offers plenty for families to do. So your family will really love you for this trip.

Treasure Island

 

Treasure Island is another stunning island resort located in the Mamanuca Islands, a short 40 minute catamaran ride from the Denarau Marina.  This gorgeous island is surrounded by a coral cay, with expansive white sandy beaches, making it a fabulous choice for families after the best resort in Fiji with kids.

When it comes to holidays with kids, Fiji offers plenty of great kids clubs to choose from and Treasure Island does not disappoint on this front.  Here you’ll find the Little Treasures kids club, which is open for kids aged 4 to 11.  Younger children are welcome to join the activities, but they will be required to be accompanied by an adult.  Activities range from fish feeding, snorkelling, pool games, treasure hunts, turtle feeding, Fijian dance and more.  The kids club is open daily from 9.30 am until 12 pm, 2 pm to 4 pm and then between 7 pm to 9 pm.

In addition to the kids club, families can spend their days swimming, snorkelling as well as using a range of free non motorised water sports.  That is, of course, if you can tear yourself away from the gorgeous three tiered infinity pool.  Other facilities on site include a day spa, tennis court, golf, volleyball court and there are also other water sports such as jetski hire, banana boat rides, sailing and more.

Around the island, the resort offers accommodation in 78 traditional style Fijian bures.  While the bures are fairly basic, they offer all the modern comforts required, including air conditioning and tea and coffee making facilities. Family bures sleep two adults and two children in a king bed and two single beds.  

In terms of dining, there are several options on Treasure Island, with six restaurants to choose from.  There are several private dining options too for something a little bit special, such as dinner in the sunset bures and a picnic on a private sandbar in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. Meal plans can also be arranged.

What’s to love?

This small, intimate island setting is fantastic for families travelling with younger children – perfect if you want the best Fiji resort for young kids such as toddlers or primary school aged kids.  Parents can relax with confidence, knowing their little ones are not too far away and being thoroughly entertained.

What’s not to love?

Like all island getaways, having to factor in the additional transfer costs to reach the island does increase the budget.  Also, the island is isolated, but that’s why you stay on a Fiji Island.  

Summary

For families looking for that beautiful Fiji Island escape, Treasure Island is a great choice.  It’s close to the mainland, making it easy to reach.  It also offers relatively good value for island resorts, particularly when you consider the various activities on offer, including a great kids club.

Coconut Beach Resort

 

For families who want a more remote island escape, consider Coconut Beach Resort in the Yasawa Islands.  With its position, directly overlooking the famous Blue Lagoon, the Coconut Beach Resort is the ultimate destination for a remote family island getaway.

This small beach resort just has 11 bures on the property, so here you will well and truly escape the crowds you’ll find in the bigger Fiji resorts.  While this means no dedicated kids club, it guarantees an intimate tropical getaway.

Despite having no kids club, there is no chance of the kids getting bored.  There are numerous activities at Coconut Beach Resort that the entire family will enjoy.  There’s snorkelling, kayaking, SUPing, volleyball, guided walks, Fiji cultural demonstrations, fishing, diving, village visits, cooking classes, yoga and more.  This makes it the best place for kids in Fiji, who are starting to outgrow the kid’s clubs.

Each of the 11 bures comes with a king bed and two single beds to accommodate up to four people.  The bures all feature gorgeous open air bathrooms, ceiling fans, mini bar, hammocks and spectacular ocean views – you won’t find views like this in your budget rooms in the big chain resorts!

There is just one restaurant at the resort where all meals are served, and a day spa is also on site.

What’s to love?

With only 11 bures at the resort, you are guaranteed a quiet getaway.  No matter where you go, there will be no crowds, providing the ultimate secluded island getaway.

What’s not to love?

I’ve mentioned this a few times – adding on the transfers to get here.  However, with the Yasawa Islands being one of the further islands from the mainland, the transfers do add quite a bit to the price – particularly for a large family. In addition, given the island’s remoteness, it is also compulsory to have a meal plan.

Summary

If you want to escape the gigantic chain resorts and all the crowds that come with them, the Coconut Beach Resort is the ultimate destination.  With its sublime, lagoon setting, bures on the beach and staff to take care of your every need, this is what I like to call affordable luxury.

What’s to love?

The overwater bures – how posh!  Not to mention the free kids club and free nanny service for the tiny munchkins!

What’s not to love?

The resort is well spread out, so it could be a bit of a walk depending on where your accommodation is.  However, here you’re on island time, so there is never any hurry.

Summary

The Koro Sun Resort is an excellent place to consider for families with young kids.  As well as having a brilliant kids club, this must be one of the only places that provide a free nanny service for extra tiny ones.  This means parents are guaranteed to get some relaxing alone time.  And if that wasn’t enough, this beautiful island setting was just made for relaxing families holidays.
