Incredibly friendly staff in a nice location
Posted Nov 15, 2015
My friend and I stayed at Koro Sun in one of their Rain Tree Bures. The room itself was very spacious, and housekeeping services kept it clean and stocked throughout the duration of our visit. There were ample furnishing and electrical outlets (for recharging our cameras and other gear) and a nice fully size kitchen. The room's outdoor plunge pool was also much nicer than I had expected, and we spent a few hot afternoons using it to cool off.
The meals provided by the resort were of a broad variety and good quality. They would ask you at breakfast to choose your lunch and dinner courses from that day's selection. The desserts were consistently amazing and I definitely found myself looking forward to them (the Rack of Lamb dinner entree was also fabulous and I highly recommended it).
There is both an indoor bar adjacent to the main lounge and a swim-up bar in the adults-only seaside pool. Both had a fair selection of drinks and very reasonable pricing during happy hour.
The resort had a list of planned events/tours/excursions that you could sign up for on a daily basis, everything from free local kayaking up to ~$150USD boat tours out to scenic islands with great diving/snorkeling locations. Particularly enjoyable was the trip up into a waterfall near one of the local villages, do go if you have the chance.
The staff were always very kind and cheerful, and they often went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome.
A great vacation, would visit again.

Bula Vinaka Kai. Wow thank you for your 5star review of our property not to mention the detailed outlining of the resort and it's setting, particularly in the raintree villas you stayed in.
It is very encouraging to read a good review of our raintree villas and also that you found it spacious. Yes the plunge pools are ideal for cooling off.
For the benefit of those interested in Koro Sun Resort too, there are three main pools, namely the kids slide pool, the family pool near Main clubhouse and the Wai bar pool at the edgewater side (set aside for adults only).
You're right about the meals on offer coming from a broad selection. Our 10day menu cycle works well for guests especially for those staying for an average of 7nights or more guaranteeing that you won't be having the same menu available to you. Although I should mention that if guests have a certain preference, you can always request them with the resort operations Managers.
So glad that you all enjoyed the activities on offer at the resort and with Namena Divers Inc, our dive operator/partner. We are pleased with the partnership ourselves and our guests are guaranteed an excellent range of activities and things available to do.
Thank you again for your review. We look forward to receiving you back at Koro Sun Resort and Savusavu.
Our Warmest Regards,
JR & Margie Rayawa
