"If you are looking to experience Fiji, all i can say is that Garden Island resort was a total Fijian experience. This was my second trip to Garden Island. Foremost, the diving in the Soma -Soma Straight is the most beautiful diving I've ever done. The dive staff is very knowledgable of the local reefs and are quick to point out rare creatures throughout the dive. The resort staff was very friendly and accommodating, sharing the Fijian spirit."

"We had a fantastic stay at Garden Island Resort; we couldn't have asked for more. The resort is near some of the world’s most incredible diving and the dive operation is run very well. We have never encountered a more genuinely friendly and helpful staff. We were very well taken care of, and we were able to relax and truly enjoy on our vacation."

"Taveuni is stunningly beautiful and this is a very reasonably priced way to enjoy it. I did my PADI open water certificate here and had a ball. It was great to discuss the day's diving with other guests, many of whom were on repeat visits. The resort is low key and friendly and excellent value for money."

"We met our friends from New Zealand there for world class diving on the Rainbow Reef. This was our fourth trip to Fiji and their eighth - and we all agreed that we'll return to the Garden Island Resort again to enjoy the world class diving and the friendly staff."
