“Great for all the family”
Great place for the family - fun for the parents and we loved the fijian ladies who did the baby sitting becasue it gave us a chance to have a break.
Friendly staff. Only problem was not enough tourists so lots of tours and things to do were cancelled. Hope in future they think of the people already there and try to keep them happy.
“Five memorable relaxing days....”
Our December 12-17 vacation was "superb." We debated whether to stay at one of the resorts on Viti Levu where the Nadi airport is located or on one of the numerous outer island resort options. We are elated that we opted for one of the outer islands due to the truer island experience and better (i.e. more sunshine/less rain) than we would have experienced on Viti Levu. Special (initial vacation saving) resort staff services included coordinating a private (albeit more expensive) boat transfer from the airport to the resort when our flight delay caused us to miss the last transfer of the day. And while there were only 3 couples arriving on the special transfer, the staff were out at the dock in the dark welcoming us with guitar and song to receive us and our luggage and drive us to the resort lobby for check-in. Our Studio Garden Bure in the 300 area was spacious and clean with a view of the bay from our front porch separated only by about 100 feet of palm and coconut trees many with open/available hammocks strung between them.
We had a great time on Plantation Island. This hotel is excellent for families with kids. It feels very safe and quiet even when hotel is fully occupied there is always a peaceful place to relax on the beach. Snorkeling is great right off the shore and sandbank is even better. There are small things that the resort could improve on mostly with the state of the rooms but nothing major. My daughter (11) enjoyed some of the Coconut club activities, loved kayaking and snorkeling and said this was the best vacation we ever had!
“Plantation Island holiday”
Due to Westin Denarau been closed down because of Cyclone Evan, we chose to stay at Plantation Island Resort which we felt was an awesome choice to have made. Even though we had arrived not long after Cyclone Evan hit, the staff worked round the clock to make sure that the resort looked it's utmost best. I thoroughly enjoyed the friendliness of all of the staff and the fact that they took time to find out our names. They were very helpful and always greeted us with a smile. The complimentary activities that were available were fantastic as made the costs of holidaying more affordable. In saying that the other activities I felt were affordable anyway. My children, husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Plantation Island and are planning to return in the near future.
“GREAT TINE !!”
Had a fabulous time... Staff were great... Food was awesome... All said GREAT !!!
Absolutely loved the Plantation Island! We went there twice over 6 months period. The beach is just stunning, with beautiful sunsets, and good snorkelling just off the beach. We stayed in garden bure, which was very comfortable, the food was good, service sometimes slow, but hey... it is Fiji time :D Would be going there again one day - hopefully soon :D
“Plantation Island Fiji April”
The Fijians have still got that human experience that makes you involved in with staff. Many resorts in the 'developed' nations would benefit a week of witnessing the level of interaction staff at Plantation Island have with their guests.
“Plantation Island Resort - April 2012”
This holiday was all about the kids being busy, entertained and having fun and allowing us to join in but also relax at the same time and the resort and facilities totally achieved all of that. Recently hit by storms and floods the resort was undergoing maintenance but that was all well managed and we were not affected by that in any way. There are four close places to eat, buffet in the main area for all 3 meal times, and 3 other a la carte restaurants, incl one at the adult only resort, Lomani. No complaints about the food apart from personal taste, e.g. not quite cooked the way liked, and definitely catered for most tastes, esp the kids. Couple of things that we were not aware of before going: 1) no cash transactions in the resort (only at Anandas shop). All food, drinks, activities were either booked to room or charged to the a cash card which you get from reception. By chance, we took loads of cash which we put on this card & avoided the 3-4% surcharge on the credit card bill at the end of the week. Receipts from purchases showed rolling card balance. Although we thought it was a really good system, the system wasn't always working which was a bit frustrating. 2) Wifi access - you can buy it at $35FJD for 24hours, other time options available. However, I was told, while there, that a Vodafone t-stick works great for about $15 a week for 1GB data but you have to buy from mainland...can't confirm this personally tho' All-in-all we all had a really good time Thanks PIR
They have a lot of double handling with vouchers and tickets and need to comuterise this more. They also need more staff serving drinks. It took an average 10 minutes to get drinks and you had to go to the bar from wherever you were on the island.
