We have stayed in many beautiful places, but never one that combines luxury accommodation with outstanding service and exquisite meals. There were lots of activities to keep us busy throughout the day - scuba diving, snorkelling, paddle boarding, sailing, hiking, day trips on the island, etc. There is an excellent kids camp. Although we were not travelling with young children,... More

We stayed here on the last leg of our journey. The whole experience was amazing. We had an ocean front bure which was such a traditional atmosphere we immediately fell in love! We were greeted with so much warm and love we immediately felt at home. And when our gorgeous nanny Laisa appeared and our 2 year old took to... More

We spent our 30th Wedding Anniversary here, for a total of 10 nights. Don't really no where to begin.... The gorgeous resort setting, the wonderful staff, the fantastic diving...

Travelling with a 9 month old on his first OS holiday, I was a little nervous to say the least but I need not have worried - JMC was great! The only negative now being that the bar has been set quite high! The room was lovely with a good Fijian feel and had plenty of space for our baby... More

We met up with some NZ friends here for a family holiday. The resort, staff, location, experience are amazing. We did the private island escape for our wedding anniversary and the staff made us a complimentary cake and threw in a bottle of sparkling wine with our picnic. Other highlights were stand-up paddleboarding in the bay, the village visit and... More

We came here not realising it was for families. The resort was lovely but noisy with all the kids. At 6am we were woken daily from parents on their way to off load their kids at Bula club and having loud conversations (possibly the only conversations they had in a day) along the way. They showed no regard for others... More

We have mixed feelings about our stay at Jean Michel Cousteau. The resort itself is just beautiful. The location & the staff were fabulous. We did holiday in Fiji during a very hot time of the year and the humidity was very high. The bures & entire resort do not have air conditioning which we found hard at night time... More

My wife and I spent just over two weeks here: our Bure was wonderful, food excellent, staff very friendly. Scuba diving spectacular, the best we have seen in our world-wide experience (we dove over 20 times). Although just the two of us, we could see they had a robust children's program (separate children's and adult pools). Truly eco friendly: grow... More
