Paradise Cove - aptly named

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Jun 2024via mobile
Paradise Cove is aptly named!
The beautiful environment and the fabulous team at Paradise Cove make your whole experience memorable for all the right reasons.
Nothing is too much trouble and it doesn’t matter whether you just want to laze by one of three pools or go out for the many activities - your choice is ok with them.
One of the things I really liked about our time there is that it is a relatively small resort and, as such, very relaxed and you got to meet and chat with other guests. At the bigger resorts this can be more difficult and, as a widow, I found this feature particularly enjoyable.
Now I do need to mention the food. This was an unexpected delight. I had read the reviews but, to be honest, was not expecting too much as in other trips to Fiji I had found the food disappointing. This was certainly not the case at Paradise Cove. Go hungry!!
We enjoyed ourselves so much we are already planning our return trip. Thank you everyone at Paradise Cove. We look forward to coming back soon.

    Wow, the snorkeling is amazing at Paradise Cove. The Yasawa islands in FIJI are for anyone who loves snorkeling and beach holidays. Despite not seeing any Manta Ray’s (which was our primary motivation for visiting paradise cover) my husband and I had terrific time at Paradise Cove and plan to return.

    Snorkeling

    Paradise Cove has a very healthy house reef. It was amazing to swim each day straight from the beach. You can swim on any tide; you just need to be careful on low tide & go in from an area beside the reef to get out into deeper water then swim across the reef.
    In addition, there are daily snorkeling trips on a boat to various other reefs to explore. The resort will vary the reefs daily.
    The snorkeling was truly magic.

    Accommodation
    We loved our Paradise Bure, it was roomy and ideal for a beach holiday. I would highly recommend staying in these Bures.

    Service
    Our appreciation goes to Josh (dinner service) Leisa (housekeeping) who were genuine and exceptional in their service delivery. Sadly, we also had some average service, were we felt like an inconvenience.

    Activities
    Besides the snorkeling, we enjoyed walking daily to the lookout. The gym is surprisingly good for an island resort. There is Yoga daily and other activities on offer.
    The spa offers a range of services which we enjoyed twice throughout our stay.

    Food
    The food wasn’t for us. They have a 6-course compulsory menu. That said, they changed a few things to make it work for us which we appreciated.
    We had a private BBQ one night, which we wished we did more as it was perfect. The food was delicious, the service was better than we could have imagined with a personal waiter & chef who serviced and cooked outside our Bure. This was very special!

    We would definitely recommend Paradise Cove. The snorkeling, bures and activities make this place well worth visiting. It is a truly amazing resort. Yes, there were a few thinks that could have been improved for us, but they weren’t big in the overall scheme of the holiday. Finally, we would highly advocate getting to Paradise Cove by Island Hoppers. The helicopter is a fast way to getting to Paradise Cove while flying over the crystal blue water with reefs scattered all the way out to the resort.

    Spent last 8 nights in Fiji. First 4 Nanuku (amazing hospitality) and last 4 Yasawa, dividing time between Oarsman Bay (cave tour), Paradise Cove and Waya Island (newest resort).

    Overall, Paradise cove is by far the nicest. Upgraded from Garden Burre to One bedroom oceanfront suite upon arrival. The room was very nice, huge and lovely bathroom, and complimentary mini bar with soda and beer. WiFi and AC worked great.

    The beach area is calm and serene. Excellent snorkeling. Pool and bar area nice as well.

    The meal plan is compulsory or mandatory. The price is egregious per person at 259 FJD and coupled with hotel pricing would make me reconsider visiting the Yasawa in the future. I can stay at many 5 star all inclusive resorts and have an equal to better experience. Drinks aren’t included so you can easily spend 400/500 per day on food and beverage. Breakfast and lunch are single menu item orders and if you are hungry, pay up for more!

    Bottom line is the resort is very nice and if I were to return to Yasawa, this is the spot. Many reviews leave out details and I try to be transparent.

    Room tip: The Japanese omikase is quite nice although you may be hungry afterwards

    We loved it from the moment we arrived; Everyone was so genuinely friendly and the atmosphere was simply extremely relaxing the entire time. The staff were super helpful but you also felt like they loved working there.

    Beautiful location of course but also great and well kept amenities, fantastic food (and good selection of it - for sure try the tapas menu in the restaurant at the back)! We stayed at a few different resorts whilst island hoping but this was by far our favourite.

    Room tip: Walk up to the sunset viewpoint with some drinks and enjoy!

    Most amazing place - heaven on earth.

    Samu, Ida, Eta and Zach were amazing, helpful, friendly people.

    It was our second time there and we will go back!

    The food was out of this world amazing and the gluten free options were great - the pancakes were delicious.

    Room tip: Most amazing comfortable beds.
