Relaxing and fun break

Really wonderful trip. Glad we went of peak season because I imagine it would get busy. I liked how relaxed, playful and easy everything was. Buffet blast and dinner with 3 teenage boys was wonderful. Activities run. Pools and hang out spots great too.

Wright's Holiday

Plantation Island is a fabulous establishment with great and friendly staff. We have been there quite a few times and still enjoy it. Swimming is great for adults and children. I recommend Plantation Island if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. w

Vinaka PIR

We had the most wonderful time, even though it was raining like crazy and only got one sunny day. Massive shout out to the activities guys for keeping us laughing, singing and dancing!
A difficult time for the island as most of it was underwater, but the staff handled it well kept things humming.
My dad had an excellent 70th Bday - we will be back!

One week in Paradise

We made right choice with PIR. Location is outstanding. Very beautiful island with a lot of trees, very green. A lot of free water activities, my 5 yo loved kids club. Our 2 bedroom garden bure was clean and tidy and just 50 m from the beach.  
Hope we will be back one day

Amazing Family Resort!

We had an amazing time at this resort! We were there during the raining season and it was true to its word, rain and overcast every single day! However, this resort and the staff made our stay amazing regardless! Almost all activities still went ahead as usual, and if they couldn't they would do their best to make amendments to make it happen another way just as good! The food was great, the room was great, super spacious and beds were fairly comfortable. The staff were all amazing from restaurant, to admin to housekeeping. Our kids loved the kids club and begged to go everyday - this is a godsend especially during bad weather so you're never stuck with bored children! Overall we really enjoyed our stay, will definitely be back and highly recommend this resort to both families and non-families!

A great place for a break

We spent a week on Plantation Island in early March 2024, we have been there many times and return because of the value and the culture. The staff are brilliant. The resort continues to invest with ongoing refurbishment. We swam, snorkeled on the sandbar and Joes Farm (which is spectacular), fished and dived. What more do you want!

Great holiday destination

This was a great holiday destination for families, there was so many fun activities for the kids and the kids stay and eat free deal was such a money saving! 
The resort itself was close to the mainland and quick and easy to get to!
The facilities at the resort were a little rundown in some areas, our room could do with a revamp but it was clean and all the amenities worked (and we were too busy all day to spend any time in it, so we really were only in it to sleep) 
The Fijian staff at the resort were absolutely beautiful and nothing was too much for them! 
The food at the buffet was good, but by the end of a week we were a bit over buffet breakfasts! The food at black coral was delicious! Absolutely recommend it! 
your after a holiday at an island resort that will keep everyone in the family happy this is definitely the spot for you!

Best Location

The location of this island is hard to beat. You can hire the bikes to get around the island which makes the trip more fun (although some bikes are old).
The staff are very welcoming and friendly and the entertainment during dining is awesome. We had the breakfast buffet included. This is good for people who like to have a big breakfast and not have to eat again until dinner. Otherwise, breakfast off the menu is available at Tavola. The accommodation in beach Bure is basic but fine as it's the stunning view and being steps away from the beach that you pay for. There's inflatables for the kids and the hotel advised there are more water facilities coming for the bigger kids/adults mid this year. It would be of benefit for the resort to supply hand sanitizer and to ensure that everyone entering the buffet uses it. All in all, a great stay. We will be back

Perfect tropical holiday

Just the break we needed. Always something to do, beautiful island. Kids club was great.
Only downfall is dining options - you have to book your entire dinner reservations straight up so if you feel like something different that night you cannot change.
Buffet breakfast is great. Will be good when the ice cream and donut shop is open.

Plantation island value for money

A 3 star resort in a 5 star location with plenty of activities and amenities to suit most people. We are a family of 5, with a mix of young children and teens. We have been to plantation island resort 4 times now and will return. The resort is actively renovating and adding in more services, and over the years we have been there we have seen a lot of improvements 

We did the tours, including village tour, snorkeling, island hopping and surfing. We used the 4 pools, with the infinity pool at Tavola restaurant being our favourite. We stayed in a poolside room which was good, the room has been recently renovated and was more than comfortable. We also did snorkelling off the beach south of the jetty, we ate at all venues including sit downs at Tavola and Black Coral, as well as Buffet. Food was good quality.

The staff are wonderful, friendly and take time to talk to you if you take time to introduce yourself. 

The resort offers a returnees cocktail party and other benefits like free wifi and room credit. We do plant to return next year

Very well looked after

We are a family of 2 adults and a 2.5yo. This is our second time staying at Plantation Island Resort (first time with a child) and we enjoyed it even more this time around.
Despite a tropical cyclone coming past Fiji in the middle of our stay, the resort and all the staff handled it so well, keeping us informed and preparing the resort for the storm, we felt very safe. 24 hours after the storm the resort looked like nothing had happened, all the staff worked so hard for us, it was incredible.
We loved the Bula bikes, to ride around the island, the excellent selection of food, and the beautiful snorkelling just off the beach. They have a new "underwater museum" that you can swim out to, to see fish swimming amongst bicycles, tables and chairs, golf buggies and more - it's very quirky and a lovely activity.
We are already planning our next trip to Plantation Island.

Tropical Plantation Resort

This was not my first trip to Plantation Island Resort so from the moment we arrived on the Malolo Cat transfer boat to the moment we left we had a wonderful time.  Our room was lovely in the Beachfront Hotel upstairs which had a great view of the water and you could sit in the balcony and enjoy a wine after a day of swimming at the pristine beach or lovely pools.  The staff are always a very happy bunch.  We will be back in 2024.

Fabulous family resort, stunning location & great value for money

We love Planation Island Resort- group of 9 (6 adults, 3 children aged 11,13 & 14). Kids loved the beach - in particular the water park, underwater museum, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and ski biscuit. The accommodation was simple but spacious, clean and comfortable. Loved that there are 4 pools to choose from so never too crowded. We enjoyed the food options, was great to have the two ala carte restaurants as well as the buffet options. Tours were easy to orangise and really added to the experience. Highly recommened for families looking for a large resort with plenty to do to keep the kids occupied!

Family Fun

We recently had a family holiday at plantation Island.
The activities for the kids were great, there was a variety of food available that ranged from pretty good to amazing. ( not much sea food though).
The staff were friendly and welcoming. The rooms were good, a little dated, but fully functional and have everything you need.
Only 2 minor issues, was when it rained, a lot of activities were cancelled. And despite attending the Bula bike shack every day, we were unable to hire a bike with a child seat, as a family holiday park, I thought there would be a few more than the 6 or so they had available.
Overall, we had an awesome holiday, and would return.

Plantation island resort

Plantation Island resort was amazing. Great location for families and lots of activities to do. I'd recommend the garden bure as accommodation as it was central to everything. Kids club was great and lots of fun things planned.
The food and drinks were expensive and you wouldn't mind paying the price if it was amazing food, however it wasn't anything flash. In saying that some meals were amazing when ordered from the menu but the buffet was expensive and the food wasn't anything special. Another challenging part we having to book a table in advance for dinners. The staff were lovely and the resort was so beautiful.

Great family holiday destination

Plantation Island Resort is a 3 star resort on the absolutely stunning Malolo Island, perfect for families. Amazing snorkelling straight off the beach in beautiful crystal clear waters. PIR is not a luxury resort by any stretch, but is great for families who like to swim all day and then rock up to lunch or dinner in their swimmers! Food was OK - plenty of options, but it's not a 'foodies' resort. Kids 11 and under eat free with a paying adult, which helps keep costs down. There's a little shop on-site plus another bigger one in Muscat Cove next door, so we self-catered some breakfasts and lunches. We also hired bikes to get around which was great fun for the kids, although the bikes had seen better days! Staff were great, very friendly, amazing with kids. All in all, a wonderful family holiday and we hope to come back.

Family paradise

Someone summed it up perfectly; its a 3 star resort in a 5 star location. The island, beaches and water is simply amazing. Im generally nervous in the ocean but the swim area felt so safe with its clear water, sandy edges and the roped off swim zone.
The resort is somewhat dated but you can see they are renovating some of the restaurants and common areas; The pools are cold and not that clean and the rooms are not serviced daily. But when you look at other resorts this place is exceptional value for money and we had a wonderful time. The resort gardens are stunning and the entire place is very picturesque.

A very nice week away in the very friendly atmosphere that Fiji is well known for the weather and water temperature was wonderful.

A couple of points, we had originally requested conjoined rooms in fact we had a room in between and having twin 6 year old twin boys it was not to good for the family in between us. We were a family of two grandparents our daughter with her three children. A little disappointing initially. Our air conditioner was not cooling blowing but not cooling. Reported three times over the week and was promptly attended to but not fixed, in my daughters it was a newer unit and worked well.

Recently stayed at Plantation Island and loved the time there...the staff and service is fantastic.
I think the buffet is too expensive as i certainly do not eat 45.00 worth of food for breakfast or 65.00 for dinner....

A Great Family Holiday Destination

We really enjoyed our time at Plantation Island Resort. The resort itself is quite large that has everything you need for a comfortable enjoyable stay. I thought it was fantastic that there was a dedicated kids buffet restaurant that opened at 5.30pm so you could feed the kids early, which allows the adults to eat later on. The kids club had some great activities for the kids to enjoy. The water is crystal clear with lots of free water activities available at high tide. The staff are super friendly and welcoming.

Set on a beautiful island full of palms, aquamarine waters, snorkeling right out the front of the beachfront bure, friendly and helpful staff. We went with a group of friends and their kids and bought the 1/2 board package, our biggest decision of the day was which restaurant we would dine in each night! Stress free, relaxing and so so much fun! My only criticism is that drink prices are a little high. Everyone had an awesome holiday and said they wanted to go back again

Family Paradise

Plantation Island Resort is positioned in a coconut tree lined paradise. The only thing more beautiful than the environment is the Fijian people. The resort caters for both adults and children. Travelling as a couple for surfing and snorkeling we were not disappointed and the extra resort activities filled the time gaps with space for an afternoon siesta. Admittedly, pool areas and restaurants were littered with families, which comes with it a bit of noise. But this is where the Plantation Island resort comes to its own. Its appears to be a haven for parents with children 4-12, as the kids club allows for plenty of activities and some parent-only time. As with all of Fiji, particularly in a captive resort, food is on the pricey, but budget well and you'll have an amazing holiday (Kids eat free! but food-board packages may not be your best option here). Extra curricular activities that involve boat trips may also be costly. Overall my wife and I loved it!

Magnificent and totally enjoyable

My daughter has Coeliac disease, so we were a little unsure about how the menu options and food choices she would have, as she is 12. The chefs did an amazing job, there were plenty of options to chose from, even a designated gluten free section in the buffet. Not even a hint of contamination which we were so worried about before the trip, it was so good.

Right from our welcome to the Island we felt so at home and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The room was clean and cool, kids club was awesome for the kids and there were so many activities to choose from if you wanted. We want to go back already!

Island paradise!

Plantation island was without a doubt the highlight of our trip. The staff are phenomenal and really build a relationship with you, especially with children. After one meeting they'll remember your name and after a week you'll feel like you are part of the family. We actually left there with the phone number of one of the staff so we could keep in touch, so was the bond that they formed with our family - particularly our daughter.
The water is clean, clear and picturesque. Food and drinks are a bit overpriced but nothing worse than any other resort. Our room was clean with plenty of room to spread out. We went the first few days walking everywhere but hired a bike after this and it was a great decision.
If you have kids, take advantage of the pizzas available until 5.30pm from the cafe next to the mini mart - this saved us hundreds of dollars rather than going to the buffet/restaurants each night - better yet pack plenty of snacks and 2 min noodles.
We will definitely be back!

Plantation Island

Having been here before I can say, with hand on heart; that staying at plantation Island resort is amazing. Wonderful for families and like us a retired couple. There is only one thing that I would say that was disappointing and this was the price of consumables and day trips. However saying that, the improvements they have made with the coffee shop, snack hut and mini Mart at Muscat Cove evened the food issue out quite well.
We love plantation Island and would definitely consider returning.

Amazing, unforgettable family holiday

Plantation Island was an incredible destination for our family holiday. The staff were amazing and could not do enough for you. A special mention to Lela at Copra Restaurant who went above and beyond to make sure we had an exceptional dining experience every time. She was so friendly and welcoming and made us feel like super stars. Actually all staff were amazing from the dining staff, cooks, entertainment crew, water hut crew, activities crew and our beautiful house keeping lady. The activities were fantastic. I would highly recommend the inland tours to a Village as well as the dolphin safari snorkelling tour. The location is absolutely stunning, rooms were comfortable and clean and the facilities were fantastic. I would highly recommend Plantation Island to any family.

We loved it at Plantation. It is picturesque and the staff are incredible.

The kids absolutely loved it. We have 4 kids between 10 and 6 and we only used the kids club twice as there is so much to keep them occupied and it's more fun to do as a family at this location.
The two times they did use kids club they enjoyed it, and so did we.

The perfect getaway for families. Additional travel time to the island with a 50 min ferry so factor this in to time and cost. Plantation Island staff are amazing, both kind and helpful. Rooms were cleaned every second day and were pretty roomy (our family of 5 coped well). Lots do do, snorkeling, kayaking, stand up paddle boards, inflatables, pools and beach swimming.

Perfect north facing location.
You don't have to drive to catch the boat to see the dolphins, the island boats are already there for our convenience to catch, the little white church at the top of the hill is worth attending on a Sunday, large open spaces and clean. Bula bikes are great to hire to get you from your room exploring the island with the summer breeze in your face.

Great for families

We stayed at plantation island for 7 nights. There are 4 pools around the resort and the beach is beautiful toddler friendly.
There are 3 restaurants so we didn't get a food or drink package. The buffet breakfast was very nice but buffet dinner I don't think it's worth the money but still ok to do once or twice. The other restaurant much cheaper and yummy.
Drinks are expensive so we took our own alcohol bought duty free when we arrived but still bought cocktails here and there.
Mozzies are really bad I got attacked but my two children 4,11 wore mozzy bands $7 from the chemist and wore them the full trip and didn't get one bite so definitely worth it.
I also suggest taking your own beach towels as house keeping is every 2 days and they have afternoon sun showers so it's handy to have other towels. They also have great activities for the whole family to join in on and dj every night tell mid night. Staff are so friendly and helpful but take a little time in serving so remember to be on Fiji time and chill. Definitely take snacks from home as the kids get hungry while swimming and the mini mark is expensive but we still used it. I give this resort 4 stars and would definitely stay again because they kids don't get board as other resorts are a lot smaller.

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.

Perfect family holiday

We had a wonderful time at Plantation Island. Showcases all Fiji has to offer. Beautiful tropical setting with palm trees, swimming pools & restaurants & we really enjoyed the activities & night time entertainment. We stayed in the new hotel accommodation which was lovely. Bit noisy down that end at some points but nice none-the-less with a beautiful outlook, great aircon & a dining option close by. Adds quite a few additional guests to the island which made it a little more crowded & less intimate than our previous stays at Plantation. Either way we had a lovely time. Everything we hoped for.

Wonderful family stay

We stayed with family friends. So much to do there and the staff are excellent - always friendly, smiling and helpful.
The Poolside rooms we had were connected by a door, large, and air conditioned. Recommend you get a food package with your meals included (check where you can eat for which meals - there are good options). Three of us are Coeliac and the gluten free options were excellent most of the time. The change of chefs on our last day was disappointing as our meal options became quite limited, however they did endeavour to meet our needs. Drinks are additional to the food package we had and are quite expensive (to be expected on an island). The Mini Mart was good for bottled water, although you can drink the water provided at the eateries and bars (not the tap water in your room, though).
The swimming pools and the beach were great. Fun games to play in the pool with the pool toys and balls. Many of the beach water activities were free and good fun in a large, designated area; they were supervised at a basic level where you can have plenty of fun but dangerous horseplay was stopped. Free hire of snorkels and fins.
The kids did not go to the teem club, but the kids club looked great with plenty of youngsters running up to the staff and giving them big hugs.
Good prices for day trip options. Would recommend the dolphin and snorkelling tours - they were excellent and the coral and reef snorkelling was amazing. The Island Hopper was average as the two other islands we visited were OK but the lunch, service and options were just not comparable with Plantation Island Resort; the snorkelling was good, though.
Overall, we would definitely return to Plantation Island Resort!

Terrible service in run down resort

Staff seem very uninterested and severely under trained in hospitality.
Location is great but the resort is run down. No wifi as advertised. Constant booking for restaurants that are at times not available but still half empty. A number of times mistakes made in bookings for times and dates.
Forget kids club of a night. We were with a large group and half our kids came out crying as they're made to simply sit and watch a movie with delayed sound and can't play.
Virtually zero water pressure in room. Pool towels absolutely STINK when issued. Changed a number of times with same problem.
Check price of drinks... soda water in small glass $9FJD and still had to return it as flat.
Get a massage if you enjoy using the towels the previous customer had used and had their face all over. Not to mention therapists turning up 15 mins late and delivering an hour massage in 45 mins. Plus previous persons oil all over the table.
$750FJD fishing trip for 3 hours. Simply trawled the entire time with not so much as a nibble. The boat picked us up from wrong location so started 30 mibs late. Some disappointed kids that pretty much slept the whole trip due to boredom and nil interaction or explanations from guides
Water Park abysmal. Half of it was torn, the other half of the kids one was simply missing. Can only use in high tide so for most of the day it was out of action while we were there.
Reception had no idea or information on the golf course and its a loooong walk from the resort.
Pool lounges old and stained.
Definitely expect 3 star

Postcard Perfect!

Upon arrival we were taken a back by the crystal clear turquoise water and palm lined white beaches, simply breath taking! My family enjoyed every minute on this beautiful island. I highly recommend booking a Beachfront Bure, stepping out to the beautiful beach and warm crystal clear water was what dreams are made of. Rooms were simple but with super views and were comfortable and clean. The pools were good, the ocean was the best for swimming, and all the free activities (snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayaks) were great! Our family enjoyed the cooking classes, medicine tour, and sunrise hike, shout out to IZZY for making that so much fun! The buffet was not for us (very noisy and food only just above average), so we dined everyday (breakfast/lunch/dinner) at Tavola and the food there was unbelievably good, a special shout out to Annie for making each visit as good as it could be. Highly recommend the Bula Bikes for your stay, my husband and I were taken back to our childhoods cruising around the resort on our bikes from here to there and back again. We did not opt into the WIFI and with no TV we were forced to switch off, unwind and just be a family enjoying fun in the sun. A great place to stay and enjoy the simple things in life!

Definitely a family friendly place, if you don't want to be around kids maybe not the place for you but definitely still good for couples.
The only thing which could have made it better (suggestions only) was if our group were put together. We booked together but the 3 families where spread out over the resort and it's a big resort so made it hard to get together once the little ones in bed even though we booked together. Last time I stayed we were together and it made it much easier. The other thing is there is no option to eat around the pool areas you have to get dressed and go to one of the restaurants which sometimes the kids just wanted to stay, I also would have definitely spent more if someone walked around offering drinks whilst we were at the pool areas… we had a great time and it is an amazing place to stay

5 Star Location - fantastic resort for families

We stayed in 2 of the new hotel rooms which are located right on the water front with our 4 children (2 x 8 year olds 2 x 11 year olds). Despite being concerned that we didn't have a bure which is more suited to families it worked out well as our kids were just about old enough to be in the same room without adult supervision.

Rooms were great, clean, well equipment and styled in nice modern décor. they have a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. We had an absolutely fantastic time - the resort had so much to keep the kids entertained and the environment felt very safe and secure. The kids club was a bit young for our kids - but they loved the evening entertainment. We did a few snorkelling and 1/2 day trips to the reef or other islands which were fantastic value and really enjoyable. The water sports were fantastic and I really cannot complain about how easy it was to have a relaxed family holiday in an idyllic setting. I would absolutely recommend and would go again.

There is a new pool area at the Tavola restaurant which has an infinity style pool which is great to watch the sunsets and is very nice. The other pool areas are a little dated so we didn't spend much time there (we didn't need to with the waterfront being right on our doorstep and the inflatable water park in the ocean which our kids loved)

Food was fantastic value - certainly not super high quality but pretty good and I was surprised at how good it was when the kdis were eating for free. Our family enjoyed the buffet and there was great variety in the evenings. Our kids loved it.

All in all a fantastic holiday. Thanks Plantation Island.

Brilliant as always but some upgrades are overdue

We are long-time returning customers and obviously love Plantation and everything it has to offer. A few comments as follows.
Positives:
- The buffet dinners at Copra were amazing, definitely an improvement in food quality since previous visits
- Service is amazing as always
- The Chef at Copra cooked us a fresh fish that we caught which was amazing!!
- snorkelling tours were incredible

Negatives:
- Very disappointing that you cannot ride bikes down through Musket Cove to make use of the facilities down there.
- Very disappointing that you cannot sail the Hobie Cats outside the enclosed area anymore
- Upgrades required to the deckchair areas at the main beach in front of activities bure, there's never enough deck chairs

A perfect family location

We could not speak highly enough about Plantation Island Resort. The perfect location for families, with many many kids activities, gorgeous beaches & crystal clear water. The staff were wonderful, and very friendly. 3 restaurants onsite, and the food was very nice. Slight issue with the new kids club location (which hosts the kids buffet meals) being quite far from the main adults buffet location. But I'm sure they will iron out these issues. Very smooth process from airport, to the partner hotel (The Gateway), transfers to the marina, and then onto the island.

Just back from 8 days at PIR. Our kids loved the activities and kids club and freedom to roam barefoot! We loved the laidback feel and friendly staff and location, plus tour options. The beach, lagoon, snorkelling, all surpassed our expectations, its a stunning spot and I miss the view! Food expense does add up very quickly and the quality is hit and miss. Plus there is a bit of a smell wafting in the boat shed area at times, but these were our only complaints. Loved the nightly entertainment, loved that water sports were free, loved the village and snorkelling tours. And staff make the experience so special with their friendliness and interaction.

this was our 4th time to PIR and we just love it! Their new infinity pool was amazing, with a great little restaurant. The small renos they had done during covid made it look fresh and crisp.
But its the vibe we love! Laid back chill, relaxing, family fun. The BEACH amazing, stuck on an island, i think not! So much to do - snorkel, water park, kayak, paddle board, sand castles, pools, activities center.
Hands down the BEST FREE KIDS club in Fiji

Great family destination

What a fantastic Resort for families with children of all ages. Loads of activities throughout the day to keep children occupied with very friendly staff always willing to help.
Food was amazing, with plenty of choices each themed night at the copra restaurant. I would advise to pre-book at least half board meals or full board as meals and drinks can be expensive if not on a plan.
Our only dissatisfaction was the slow service at the Tavola restaurant.
The snorkelling is great either off the beach at the museum or on the daily boat trips.

We enjoyed every moment of our time there. Made friends with a lot of the locals.
I would strongly recommend Plantation Island to any family travelling with children.
One of the best experiences I have ever had travelling overseas.
Happy family.

Amazing Family Holiday

This place is perfect for families. The resort is undergoing some construction and some rooms and facilities need upgrading but the beach and pools are great. Snorkelling is amazing, weather was perfect, food was good, coffee good.
I barely saw my kids as they were off on their own a lot, place is safe and bula bikes are great.
Note this is NOT a 5 star resort. But you have everything you need.
Will def be back.

Family holiday paradise

Couldn't recommend plantation island more. It's unique, picturesque, friendly, activity filled, entertaining for kids and adults and relaxing too. Everything you need is at your fingertips. Staff are so friendly and accommodating, we've made some good friends. We keep coming back and will continue to do so. Even with babies or toddlers, the babysitters are a perfect addition for giving parents some time out to relax too.

Food is a little expensive when it all adds up however to be expected given you are on an island but if you can buy a full board in your package its worth it and saves you alot.

Only downside is you can no longer ride the bikes all the way through the island now, Musket Cove have banned plantation bikes and lomani no longer allows adults for dinner from plantation. That aside it won't stop us from recommending the resort and coming back in the future. Best memories memories made right here.

Ten out of ten holiday

Friendly Fijians, fantastic reef snorkelling, fabulous pools. Food was great and our pool room accommodation, only 15 steps from our door, was a big hit with the grandchildren (and us), too. We loved the hot weather (and the aircon in the room for comfort, fans at night). All in all a wonderful week away in a tropical paradise.

Return Guest

Although I haven't been to Planation Island Resort since march 2020 as its been closed with the world , I am more than happy to give review. Our trip was stress free, great place to switch off and enjoy the scenery, the quietness, the location is magical and the staff are so friendly and obliging, they are more lie family. Do not hesitate to take your family or just yourselves to this resort , plenty of things to do , kids club, snorkeling ,swimming , kayaking, a water park ,fishing and golf , plus many more.

An amazing family holiday!!!! Highly recommend.

We stayed at Plantation Island for 7 nights (2 adults and 3 kids - 8 and under) and had the most amazing holiday. From the moment we stepped off the boat we were made to feel welcome. All staff were very friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay fantastic. The 2 bedroom Garden Bure was brilliant as well as all of the facilities. The kids loved all the activities and enjoyed making new friends.

I can definitely recommend eating at the Black Coral Restaurant. The staff were very lovely and the meals were amazing. The play equipment nearby meant that as soon as the kids had finished their meal they could play and we could enjoy a very relaxing meal together.

We are already looking at booking another holiday to Plantation Island. We returned to Australia very relaxed and feel that it was our best family holiday so far!!!!!

A return to paradise

This is our 6th trip to Fiji and our first to Plantation Island Resort - and certainly not our last to Plantation Island Resort. The Beachfront Bure was incredible!!!! To be able to take 15 steps and be in the water watching the incredible sunset was priceless. The kids club, activities and sensational snorkelling options were truly amazing and well worth making the most of. Meals were of a very high quality - we had the best Chilli Mud Crab we have ever had in our extensive travels around the world!!! Take your camera and plenty of SD cards - there is much to take home as memories.

Absolutely amazing vacation spot for families

Our family of 4 recently travelled to plantation island for a holiday. My two children 8 & 5 had a wonderful time... there was plenty to keep them occupied from dawn to dusk. The rooms were immaculate with modern touch. The buffet meals were perfectly presented with loads of options for the fussy eaters of the family! The staff were amazing with a friendliness that made it easy to just enjoy the stay!
I would recommend a visit here with all aged families.

A real island paradise

Beautiful place, beautiful people.
Checking in was well organised and simple.
Our room was only metres from the beach.
We visited early February. Mornings and evenings were nice, it did get pretty hot through the middle of the day, air conditioned room allowed an escape from the heat.
Buffet breakfast was great, evening meals in the Tavoli restaurant were excellent - not a lot of options for lunch.
Prices were reasonable.
The resort is spread out - the Bula bikes are the way to go to get around.
Mololo Cat ride to and from the island was fun - about 50 minutes.

Great family holiday

Our first trip overseas as a family. Plantation island exceeded our expectations. We had a 3yo, 9yo and 10yo. Heaps of families and kids.
Yes the property is dated but it satisfied all our needs. We did full board, which is definitely recommended. We didn't leave the island for entire stay. Snorkelling right in front of you.
We will definitely go back to Fiji and would definitely consider plantation island.

Malolo Lei Lei - what a great location

Plantation Island Resort is a great place for kids with a sandy beach and loads of pools and kid friendly facilities.
Adults can snorkel on the reef which can be reached from the beach or walk around the island.

Some improvements with separating smoking from areas from non smoking areas are needed. The manager helped us out with this, thanks Ravin.

Paradise Plus

We have just been on our second holiday to PIR. We had to stay longer this time (10 days) as the week we stayed before was not long enough.
We felt like we were home again on the Island. The staff greeted and looked after us as we were family.
The new upgrades and restaurant were fantastic and the old charm was still there as well.
Planning our next trip already. Safe for children and the views are magnificent.

Good for young families

We stayed here to attend a wedding ceremony. We were 2 adults without children and found it to be similar to staying at a camp ground. We were woken each morning by kids. Would have appreciated having other adults as neighbours instead. Thought the main buffet was expensive and offered the same food options each night. Enjoyed the neighbouring Musket Cove facilities and would stay there given a second opportunity.

A fantastic, relaxing break

You cannot fault the staff and service at Plantation Island - It is a 3.5 star resort, so if you are looking for that clinical, businesslike feel of a hotel, this resort is not the place to go. The staff get to know people by name and greet them with a big "BULA!" wherever you are on the island.

Food is great, with options from buffet meals (different buffet each day) to a la carte dining at either the Tavola or Black Coral restaurants. For an adults only night, there is also the option of walking around to the restaurant at Lomani.

Activities are available, most of them free! Paid activities like the snorkelling trips or trip to the nearby village and school are all reasonably priced. There is also activities for kids and teens, so they can take a break from their parents!

Highly recommend Plantation Island Resort for families of all ages!

Perfect for family holidays in the Pacific

We could not rate Plantation Island more highly for its wonderful facilities and activities. We stayed in the brand new Oceanview rooms. These were clean, spacious and well appointed. They had direct location on the beachfront, and were close to the beautiful new pool, restaurant and bar. There were endless activities for kids, many of them free of charge. Food was fresh and plentiful, and we felt the whole resort was more family friendly than some of the nearby, and more expensive resorts.

A great holiday option

We traveled with 2 young children and Plantation Island Resort was a perfect place to stay. The staff were fabulous and the food was plentiful. We loved the option of swimming in the ocean at high tide or any one of the pool in the resort.

When travelling back home we stayed on Denarau Island for a few nights, to break up what would have been a long trip home.

Next time we will most likely stay on Denarau before and after going to Plantation Island.

We had a group of 3 families (6A & 6K) staying together. The island offered something for everyone. Never a shortage of things to do and see, however plenty of time to relax and unwind as well. The food, the people (especially "Onie and Miso" and all the staff at the Black Coral Restaurant), the facilities, all were wonderful. We will definitely be back to stay again.

Only booked/stayed one night - our 10yr old son loved it. There is alot for children to do both on land and in the water.
The new restaurant, Tivola, was very good. The new infinity pool and accommodation at that end looks great. The rest of the resort needs abit of TLC; bures were big, clean and well ventilated w aircon and fans.
It is definitely a family resort; would not be my first choice if travelling as a couple but would visit again as a family.

A week in paradise

We had a fantastic week at Plantation. There were a few gripes, but all of these are minor. The dining is expensive, but we found ways to save. The shower drainage in our bure was slow and I wouldn’t say the bure was immaculately clean on arrival, no resort guide in the room, also no spare key available. As I say, all of these are minor issues in the grand scheme of spending a week in the special slice of paradise. The staff were wonderful, the facilities excellent, the buffet breakfast delicious! Our farewell song from our favourite guitar player was special indeed. It was a magical week for our family. We hope to return. Bula vinaka!

Fun-filled destination with activities for all ages

Our stay at Plantation Island was perfect for our family. With many activities to choose from, including the inflatable water park, snorkeling, volleyball, tennis, golf, massage, kids club, etc, there's something for everyone. It's the perfect place to relax and read a book and take the occasional dip in one of the 3 pools or beautiful ocean. We particularly enjoyed learning about the effects of global warming on the coral reefs and what the Fijians are doing to bring the coral reefs back to life. The only down-side was noticeable increases in the cost of staying on the Mamanuca Islands, but it's a small price to pay for bliss.

Relaxing get away

We loved staying on P.I. It was just the holiday we needed. Walk out the front door and sit on the beach. Kids club was great for Mr. 5 and Mr. 11 enjoyed the water activities, snorkeling and the Bula bikes. Breakfast and dinner were lovely but lunch was a bit limited with the only option the buffet or pizza. Muscat Cove was a little bit far away for the kids to go, just for something to eat for lunch since they you can’t ride your bike the whole way anymore. When the new section opens with a new restaurant, it should give a bigger variety. Would have loved to have been able to purchase a drinks package too as this ended up costing a fair bit. Overall a great relaxing getaway. We will definitely be back!
