Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort

A romantic yet also thoroughly family-friendly luxury retreat

Sustainable luxury on Vanua Levu for families and couples

Located on the southern shores of Vanua Levu, Fiji’s second largest island.

25 bures – a Fijian word for a traditional thatched house – are set around Savusavu Bay, most enjoying views of the ocean and reefs beyond. Some have two bedrooms, ideal for families, while others are more secluded. The opulent Presidential Villas has its own walled garden, spa tub and waterfall.

Dine on fresh Fijian cuisine and South Pacific and Asian-inspired delicacies, with all meals served at the al fresco restaurant just a few steps from the shore. You can also enjoy more private dining experiences on the pier, beach-side dining decks or perhaps on your very own island.

There are a huge range of activities on offer here and a selection of all-inclusive packages depending on what sort of a vacation you’re after. As you’d expect by a resort founded by Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of Jacques, there is a wonderful dive school, along with some fine snorkelling and a resident marine biologist. You can also explore the waters on boat trips, fishing outings, kayaks and stand up paddle boards. Back on land there is a range of cultural experiences on offer, a relaxing spa and complimentary kids’ club to keep the young ones thoroughly entertained.

Places to combine Jean-Michel Cousteau with



Kokomo Private Island
Located at the tip of the Kadavu Island Group and surrounded by the Great Astrolabe Reef, Kokomo Private Island is the epitome of pure escapism. As soon as you approach the island, either by private seaplane or helicopter, you immediately get the feeling you have arrived someone very special. A lush green interior gives way to powder white sand which in turn seeps into the sparkling turquoise waters of the Pacific. The retreat is spread across 140 acres, giving guests a sense of seclusion and total privacy. There are 21 beachside villas scattered across the island’s two longest beaches, with the option of one, two or three bedrooms. The open-plan villas are bright and airy, simple, sophisticated decor fused with traditional Fijian influences. There are also five hilltop residences, nestled among the natural rainforest, offering spectacular views across the island and the ocean, as well as one owner’s residence which enjoys a prime beachfront location. All accommodation options come with a private infinity pool and walled garden. Organic fruits and vegetables grown on the island and seafood harvested from the surrounding waters are used to create beautiful dishes with a tropical touch, which can be enjoyed at the  Beach Shack restaurant, the poolside cafe or at secluded spot on the island. All your meals are included with your stay. The Great Astrolabe Reed is the fourth largest in the world and exploring the pristine waters that surround the island is a highlight of any stay. Snorkel, swim, dive, water ski or kayak through the underwater world then head back on land to play tennis or hike and bike across the island.
Davui Island Resort, Fiji


Royal Davui Island Resort
Located on Fiji’s Beqa Lagoon, Royal Davui is an idyllic island retreat set against a backdrop of white sandy beaches, turquoise waters and fiery sunsets. 16 vales – the Fijian word for home – are nestled among the tropical gardens, each one looking out across the ocean. The decor is stylish and modern but within the vales, there’s an air of tradition with thatched roofs and wooden frames. Each one features a sundeck with a private heated plunge pool from where you can relax and spot dolphins and turtles moving through the lagoon. At the heart of the resort is a magnificent Pacific banyan tree which pushes its way up through the Banyan Restaurant. Here, you can enjoy fresh seafood, tropical flavours and relaxed dining – or you can choose to enjoy your meal on your private deck or at a number of secluded spots around the island. Ingredients are sourced locally and the fish used in dishes are line-caught. The reef surrounding the island is protected and no fishing is allowed within one mile, resulting in waters incredibly rich in marine life. Exploring this underwater world is a highlight of a stay at Royal Davui and guests can swim, snorkel, dive or kayak through the pristine waters. There’s a strong eco focus and the resort was designed to exist in harmony with the natural environment. During construction, vales were built in locations which eliminated the need to cut down ancient trees. All the timber was purchased from sustainable plantation stock and wastewater is treated and converted into usable garden water.
