Location, location!

Absolutely stunning location. Facilities were being improved and the potential is definitely obvious.
Staff lovely and helpful.
Would highly recommend to families and large groups of families. Soo much for kids to do.


A slice of paradise

We had the most amazing family holiday at plantation island. The location is so beautiful and the staff are so kind and friendly. There was so much to do and a variety of pools meant it never felt crowded. The ocean is clear beautiful and so lovely to swim in.


Perfect Stay - Won't forget this one !

This was one holiday I did not want to ever finish. The resort was absolutely amazing and the location so picturesque. I stayed in a Beachfront Bure.. Waking up to those views daily were dream-like. These rooms appear to have been recently renovated so we're very fresh and clean and comfortable from the beginning. Housekeeping kept on top of their cleans in between my stay. That saying.. the staff throughout the entire resort in every role were nothing short of beautiful.. so friendly and helpful. Food was very tasty with different themed buffets every night for variety. À la carte restaurants made for a very nice and slightly fancy alternate. (I would definately recommend a pre-purchased meal plan as meals could get expensive without one). Drinks can also add up if you like spirits or wine so would also recommend bringing some with you to help ease that cost but other than that.. there were plenty of things to keep both adults and kids alike busy and entertained throughout the stay. I've never been to Fiji before but with an experience like this.. it definately won't be my last.
