Great place, room was huge. Resort is big and you do need the map. American buffet breakfast was yummy and at $42 FJD, hefty but worth it.

Family friendly resort

Posted Jun 27, 2017 on Hotels
The resort is looking a bit old, it's an ideal place for families not so much for couples (Lomani and musket cove is quieter) plantation has all the activities and day trips. Transfer to cloud 9 was really reasonable too they only offer transfer every second day, book as soon as you arrive. Book black coral restaurant for an a la carte choice as it's quieter option than the buffet. Bula bikes were great option to get around the island. Musket cove has a bigger supermarket than at plantation FYI. No room service so pack extra snacks. Staff were friendly, it's a good resort

Amazing spot and warmest clear water

Posted Mar 27, 2017
My partner and I recently stayed and we loved it. So many activities are on offer really friendly staff. The only disappointment was the food as they only do buffet breakfast and dinners and it is quite expensive. Other than that highly recommended especially if you have children

Resort for Kids

Posted Mar 26, 2017
If you don't want to spend your vacation with endless amounts of kids, don't come here. Tons of kids - which is what it caters to. We were able to find a few places away, but if you want to relax this place is not for you. However, the best snorkeling we have seen off the beach. Staff not too friendly and rooms are decent - nothing extravagant. Buffet dinner food was bad, but the a la carte restaurant was great for dinner. Lots of rules we didn't care for - had to check in with the entire group that arrived on the boat with you, hour limits on the rental gear so you could only snorkel until 4:00, no adults on the kid bouncy area, can't sit on the beach for breakfast. Overall, wouldn't recommend other than the beach and snorkeling. Would recommend bringing own heat as they rent out a lot.

Great locations, few downfalls.

Posted Mar 1, 2017 on Wotif
On arrival everything was great! Tiki was lovely everything was brilliant. We always got a friend Bula from everyone and a bottle of champers and sarongs because it was our honeymoon. Mozzies and sandflies were a bit of a pain. Take your aeroguard. Only downfall is that seems alot of the activities to take place would need a minimum of 6 people for it to happen. Bit hard when your travelling as a couple or even for a family of 4?!

Beautiful location and okay for 3 or 4 days

Posted Jan 2, 2017 on Wotif
Pros: The entertainment was good, especially the Fijian traditional concert night. Crab and frog racing was fun. Great Kava ceremony by Michael.
Cons: The furnishings in the rooms need cleaning. More fresh tropical fruit for breakfast and dinner buffets.
Location: Ideal tropical island location. Snorkelling, canoeing and other water sports at the resort. Village tour on nearby island and tours to other islands
Plantation Island Resort is the perfect Fijian setting you would expect, with crystal clear water, palm trees and hammocks dotted around the resort. It is a good venue for an authentic Fijian holiday, but is not a 4 star hotel and is better for families than couples. The furnishings in the bures were grubby and the food was ordinary (especially for Fiji). Fresh fruit was scarce and you had to be at the buffets (breakfast and dinner) early to find any fresh fruit - no bananas, paw paw, mangoes at all. Very little tropical fruit, in fact, which we found disappointing. Three or four days on the island is enough. To mix your holiday with a few days on the mainland would be better.
