... and got ready. I went straight for the sea and did some snorkelling as the tide was in so I could swim better around the reef! Today I saw some massive school Of fish, like half the size of Jo! It was scary at first swimming towards them to get a picture but I got used to it! I then just relaxed on the sun beds on the beach whilst drinking a coconut! We had lunch after - I had seafood pasta which was very yummy! Then watched a coconut demonstration where they told ...

The staff set up a big screen on one side of the pool after dinner and projected 21 jump street while serving free popcorn and ice cream. After we walked down the beach with the clear night sky ...

With my bed being made everyday and fresh hibiscus flowers laid on each pillow I really do feel like I am on holiday. I have to stop myself feeling guilty for just relaxing into it, its not even a case of 'I could get used to this', I worry that I am used to this!

Historical Traveler Reviews Tokoriki Island Resort
This beautiful resort has recently had a"make over" with a brand new pool and the bures have been refurbished.
Have stayed at this resort twice, in 2003 and 2004. The staff especially the manager James and his wife Erin were great. The food was excellent, the activities plentiful and the fact that children under 12 are not allowed, made the holiday so peaceful and relaxing.
This resort if truely value for money. It would have to be the best resort in the Mamanuca Islands group, followed by Castaway Island.
If you can afford it,you must stay at the Yasawa Island Resort , this would be my first choice. (Refer to review on this resort.)
We stayed on Tokoriki for our honeymoon for 5 nights in July this year and were blessed with 5 sunny gorgeous days.
My husband and I stayed here for 6 days for our honeymoon. We loved every minute of it. Such a wonderful, romantic place with a friendly, attentive staff. This is a very small resort that does not allow young children. It is quiet and secluded - no other resorts on the island. We stayed in a honeymoon bure with a private plunge pool. I loved sitting with my feet in the plunge pool, looking out toward the ocean, and seeing a vast expanse of water with small islands on the horizon. It was so relaxing...the most amazing sunsets I've ever seen.
I have stayed twice at Tokoriki island, once before the upgrade and once during the upgrade so i'm yet to stay in one of their new rooms, however I did enjoy my time while I was there. The staff are excellent, they are all very friendly and in one case, a little too friendly! The rooms are well appointed and have wonderful private outdoor showers which are heaven to use at night under the stars. However the rooms are set back a little from the beach, nestled in the trees. Each room has it's own hammock which is also a nice touch. The food is good, i think I had the best tuna i've ever had there, however the breakfast is very expensive for what it is and the lunch menu is just so-so, with most things being standard fried fare. The main dining area is nice and will further be enhanced by the new swimming pool they've put in. There is a wonderful chess set next to reception and a quaint chappel for weddings. The gardens are ok, but could use a little work, as could the tennis court which is a little on the sad side. The major flaw however with the resort is the beach. Both times I have been there the beach has been in the process of moving around (naturally of course) and outside our room there was no sand at all, it was just hard rock. This kind of shatters the image you think of when thinking of a tropical resort, yes the palm trees are there but there isn't much sand to lie on. Also the snorkeling is so-so, it takes a while to get to the outer reef where all the coral is and it's difficult to get there at low tide, especially with a light to moderate swell.
Anyone looking for a romantic interlude, a wind-down, relaxing escape from the world - then look no further than Tokoriki Island Resort. This must be Fiji's most well kept secret! We have just spent 5 incredible days and nights at this resort in one of the Honeymoon Bures (no. 4 - the best unobstructed view of the beach, reef and neighbouring island) which was a 2 room unit with its own splash pool, decking lounges, table and chairs, along with an outside double bed under a native hut structure and a fourposted bed (with airconditioning which one needs in the tropics) with the most incredible views imaginable. No phones, no computers, not even a alarm clock - we wound-down within 2 days (ususally takes at least one week!).
Paradise Lost, I need to find again!!!!
What an amazing vacation. You might think that you may have nothing to do secluded on a small island, but Tokoriki was full of amazing suprises! The motto "Come as a visitor, leave as a friend" Is absolutely true. The staff live on an adjacent island an completely open up to you and let you in as one of your family. Food was excellent, and many activities planned for each day! Amzing place for a honeymoon, bures were so clean, and filled with flowers that wre refreshed every day. NO phones or television in rooms which make it possible to really enjoy your love one. Breathtaking views of the sunset! Guaranteed to be a vacation you'll talk about for years to come. I can't wait to go back!!!
We have just returned from a fabulous vacation in Fiji, including four nights at the Tokoriki Island Resort. This is by far the most beautiful place we have ever stayed, but what makes it even more special is the way we were treated by the staff. From the moment we stepped off the boat and were greeted with singing and shell leis, all of the staff made us feel welcome and appreciated. Every day we were greeted with a warm "Bula!" from everyone who works at the resort, and most of them even remembered our names! We enjoyed snorkeling and scuba diving, hiking to the top of the "mountain," a trip to nearby Monuriki Island (where the movie "Cast Away" was filmed), a nature walk, coconut demonstration, a class in weaving a basket with palm leaves, and just relaxing without any agenda. The food was great -- fresh, plentiful, and delicious. At dinner each evening the staff sings "Bula Malaya" and "Isa Lei," a trio of musicians serenades the diners, and a list of guests who arrived that day -- as well as those who will be leaving the following day -- is read by Penioni, a wonderful, grandfatherly type who will ensure your stay is unforgettable. The bures are large and beautifully decorated, and each includes a sheltered patio, hammock, and private outdoor shower. The views from anywhere on the resort are amazing, and the stars at night are incredible. We did encounter a few unexpected visitors in our bure: teeny-tiny ants in the bathroom, a small gecko who enjoyed running around the shower, and a very large spider that we managed to chase away (and were assured was harmless). If you are truly squeamish about insects, you may wish to vacation elsewhere. But if you do you will miss out on one of the South Pacific's most enchanting resorts. Thank you Penioni, Erin, Alex and Will, Susannah, Lily, Alma, Alumita, Iveri, Taini, and all the others who helped us have the trip of a lifetime.
Went to Tokoriki on my honeymoon and stayed in one of the honeymoon bures. Absolutely amazing, from the great sunsets to the amazing hotel staff this place rocks. Additionally, food is good and pricing is fair. If possible I also recommend the helicopter transfer, lets you see a great deal on the ride to or from.
Great place! We went on the all inclusive package which basically included all meals but no alchoholic beverages or excursions. They ask that you sign for everything - even that which is on the AI plan - but the bill was perfect when we checked out. The room are great -- all facing the beautiful Fijian sunset. The people are wonderful and accomodating -- I can't think of a place that has had nicer people. The food was okay - but we're a bit spoiled living in New Orleans. The snorkeling was gorgeous and there was plenty to do and see or just relax and unwind. We really didn't want to leave.
