With its 330 islands, Fiji has long been an in-demand vacation destination. If you’ve ever longed for an idyllic island getaway to the South Pacific nation, the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort on Savusavu Bay is likely to surpass any expectations you may have.

The serene resort was one of the first eco-luxury hotels in the world, and you can customize your vacation to include just about anything you could want from an island adventure. Consider trying these experiences on your next visit. They’re all worthy of your bucket list.

Stay In An Oceanfront Bure

The bures at the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort are made in traditional Fijian style and have a sturdy, thatched roofing, and a ceiling fan helps cool things down in warm weather. When you stay at an oceanfront bure, you can throw open your front door for a breathtaking view and the wonderful sound of the ocean waves.

Visit Nukubalavu Village

No visit to the island is quite right without a visit to Nukubalavu Village. Its name means Long Beach, and it is situated just two miles south of the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort. Visits are organized every week for guests who want to experience the market and see other parts of the rural village. It’s also home to many of the resort’s staff members.

Enjoy A World-Class Diving Experience

With its location on Vanua Levu Island, divers come from all over the world to experience the resort’s dive sites such as the revered Namena Reef. The diverse fish and coral are stunning. If you’ve always wanted to dive but never took the time, even beginners can get certified to dive during a three-night stay at the resort.

Try The Delectable Vegan Cuisine

The vegan menu at the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort is fantastic and large, so you don’t have to repeat a lot of the same meals during your stay. (Of course, you may find yourself wanting to if you discover a favorite dish, and that’s okay, too.) You can enjoy your meals in the main dining room or even have them brought to your bure. The chef is happy to make vegan desserts, too. For a memorable meal, add on a vegan picnic on the resort’s private island that’s so gorgeous many couples choose to get married there.

Get A Seaside Massage

Yes, you can get a massage anywhere, but have you experienced a restorative massage as you listened to the sounds of the sea, inhaled balmy air, and felt the sun on your back? The seaside massages at the resort were designed specifically to cater to a variety of needs, so you can discuss what you need and enjoy a massage planned just for you.

Fly First Class on Fiji Airways

If you have always wanted to try flying first-class, this vacation would be the one to do it on. When you book a business-class flight to the island nation, you’re sure to feel like the luxurious experience has already started. Fiji Airways offers lie-flat seats for business-class travel so you can sleep easily on an overnight flight after having dinner and drinks in comfort.

Plan A Getaway With Your Extended Family

No matter how you choose to get to the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort or what you decide to do once you get there, nearly everyone will find things to delight them along the way. You can even bring along your children without compromising on romance or the adventures you take because there’s an onsite kids’ club that’s so child-focused families return to it every year. Babies and very young children have their own appointed nanny when at the club. Much effort is put into offering Fijian hospitality to every guest.
