Absolute paradise

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks ago
This was the most magical accomodation we’ve ever stayed at! Coconut Beach Resort is well worth the trip on the ferry. We loved seeing sunrise and sunset from the same island - what a unique experience. There are only a small number of bures here and so it’s like you have your own private beach. There are a wide variety of reasonably priced activities running everyday and a number of free of charge ones. We made great use of the complimentary snorkelling gear and stand-up paddle boards. The coral and fish around Tavewa island are stunning and the guides are very informative. The staff at this resort went above and beyond for us and we were blessed several times a day by their idyllic singing. The food was also great and we loved having a delicious set menu picked out for us everyday. Complimentary yoga with Mela in the mornings was a great way to start our days! WE WILL BE VISITING AGAIN!

We kinda of enjoyed our stay at Coconut beach, due to the poor weather. Not sure I would ever go back to Fiji in the wet season. However, The highlight was their food, which was excellent, especially the dinners.
We also thought their diving program run by Fostyn and Mike was quite good, as they were very accommodating compared to Blue Lagoons dive shop. They offered kayaks and paddle boards as well and the staff were all very friendly
We found the rooms comfortable but were surprised w the lack of AC, especially considering how hot it can get there.
We enjoyed snorkelling on the reef out front which was excellent
We were provided a beach view burre #8 but for some reason they have plants right in front of the view of the beach that blocks the view. Outdoor bathroom w shower was nice but again very hot w/o AC which was provided at Oarsmen Bay.

Bula Chris and thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us.
We're glad you kind of enjoyed your stay with us in spite of the bad weather. March does fall in the rainy season but we normally enjoy sunshine and showers in the Yasawas, with most of the rain falling at night. This year, we had rain during the day too which wasn't what we'd asked for!
We're glad you enjoyed the food - we have a marvellous team of talented chefs who create the most delicious menus for our guests.
Thank you for your kind words about our diving operation. Coconut Beach Resort is a PADI accredited dive centre and we offer an exclusive diving experience for our guests only. This means we can offer our guests the best personal diving experience at their own pace, to fit in with other activities they wish to do.
Our villas are cooled by highly efficient ceiling fans which are normally sufficient since we also enjoy the benefits of cooling ocean breezes - nature's own air conditioning. We are always happy to provide extra fans for the rooms upon request.
We're very happy to hear you enjoyed snorkelling in our marine reserve (our house reef) the corals are stunning and there's an amazing variety of marine life to see.
Vinaka and sending best wishes to you both from the Coconut Beach Team!

Third time lucky at this amazing island. The closest to being on a deserted island you can get. The CBR team are beautiful and joyful, nothing is a problem when it comes to being helpful.

If you want to have a true experience (no tv, little internet) and honestly walk the beach and snorkel the reef from the beach edge with near no one around this is the ideal island.

Sheung, Terri, Phillip and all the Fiji hosts make every day relaxed.

Borrow a book from the library, or a game. Do yoga in the morning, go for a snorkel on the most incredible reefs, go on a fish feeding adventure, go fishing, or just for a walk and spend the day on a hammock by the beach. (The best Fijian pool there is 😂)

It’s like a family holiday with the Fijian cousins you never knew you had 😂.

Ps if you can take the helicopter as this saves so much time!

Coconut Beach was unlike any experience I have ever had before. The staff there (Phillip, Betta, Massey, Apy, Josh, Sulu, Vata, Ben...too many to mention, honestly), they were ALL incredible. They will forever live in my hearts.

The rooms were perfect; only an iguana here and there, NO BUGS at all, which seemed crazy to me since the idyllic showers and bathrooms were indoor/outdoor. Every morning, Casa was there to instruct yoga on the beach which was a spectacular way to start the day. There was such a place of calm there; everyone genuinely seems to enjoy their jobs and people.

I got my Open water dives done with Faustine and she was AMAZING. She made me feel super safe and really stressed the importance of safety. She and Mike clearly love diving and it shows in the dives. Their passion makes you excited!

The grounds were beautiful. The drinks were delicious. The food, was outstanding! Service was impeccable. I would give Coconut Beach Resort a 15/10 if I could. I found joy there. I will always be grateful for that.

Vinadoo Riki, much love to you all.

Room tip: If you are looking to get away and have some down time, this is the spot. This is not a party island, it is a peaceful sanctuary.

Bula Stacey and thank you so much for taking the time to write such a glowing review about your recent stay with us. We are thrilled to hear that your stay at Coconut Beach was the Best Trip Of Your Life! Wow, that's praise indeed for our incredible team who helped make your stay so happy and memorable :)
We do what we can to keep the bugs at bay, and mosquito repellant is freely available throughout the main facility. We're pleased you enjoyed the sunrise yoga every morning - a wonderful way to start your day.
And we're delighted you got your PADI Open Water certification during your stay. You were a star student and it gives us the greatest pleasure that you got certified by the amazing Faustine at Coconut Beach - the start of your diving adventures began here!
Thank you for your kind words about our beautiful grounds, the delicious drinks, the outstanding food and the impeccable service. And thank you most of all for telling us you found joy here. It swells our hearts and brings a little lump to our throats because that's exactly what we aim to do. Bring joy. Thank you again for your lovely review.
Your Coconut Beach Family send you love and best wishes, and we hope to see you again soon. Vinaka!

When booking online, sometimes you can never be sure if you've chosen the best place for your trip. Let me assure you, if you choose Coconut Beach Resort, you will have an outstanding experience. First, the CBR team is incredible -- kind and generous of spirit. The resort beach is a snorkeler's paradise, with a coral reef right off the beach. The Bure's are clean, modern (love the luxe outdoor bathrooms), and the quality of the food was better than I've ever experienced at an all-inclusive. CBR has two highly skilled diving instructors that exclusively work with the resort guests, so it was extra convenient for our group. I'm going back (is next month too soon?).

Room tip: Consider bringing school supplies, sunglasses for the school kids.

Staying at this resort felt like one of those "pinch me" moments in our lives. There is absolutely nothing not to love - the setting, the rooms, the activities, the staff, the entertainment and the food. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt welcomed from the second we set foot on the island. The scuba-diving is incredible - a fully PADI accredited centre - my daughter at the beginning of her diving journey was taken out by the incredible Faustine who truly is a treasure of knowledge, patience and experience. The snorkelling is incredible - either off the beach or to various locations close by - a must is the fish-feeding in Blue Lagoon. We walked directly out from our beachfront villa to hammocks in an idealic setting then on to the beach for a swim. Our evenings were filled with music, singing, chatting to the other guests and even a kava ceremony. A special thank you to Sheung, Vata, Philip and all the staff for making our stay incredibly special, we were sad to leave but look forward to returning.

Room tip: Just consider options for transfer from Denarau/Nadi. It's worth the ferry ride but there are other options - just more expensive ones.
