What do you look forward to when you go on holiday? Sun? Beaches? For many, both of these factors are top contenders, but experiencing local delicacies takes the number one spot for plenty of people.
Fiji is famed for its fresh seafood, island flavours and traditional cooking methods. Experience all of this and more while enjoying your stay at the five star Fiji Jean Michel Cousteau Resort.
Loco for lovo
A Lovo feast is not only a unique and traditional Fijian cooking method, it's also incredibly delicious! Watch as our in-house executive chef, Raymond Lee, places ingredients including various meats, fish, vegetables and taro leaves filled with corned beef, onions and coconut cream (locally known as palusami) into the pre-dug pit. The hot coals in the underground hole slowly cook the wrapped ingredients to perfection. Your children will love the theatrical element!
As The Band Boys serenade diners with their mesmerising Fijian melodies, Raymond will serve the food in a mouthwatering buffet, ready for hungry bellies.
Experience this unforgettable dining practice at the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort every week.

Dine in paradise
Your luxury family holiday in Fiji wouldn't be complete without gorgeous dining spots alongside the equally gorgeous food you'll be enjoying at the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort. Thankfully, we've got plenty. Whether you choose to revel in romance dining under the stars on the end of the beachside pier, or pack a picnic and head to our private island, dining in our Savusavu resort is always special.
Tantalise your tastebuds with traditional treats
A great feature of the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort is the amazing array of complimentary excursions that the whole family will enjoy. From glass-bottom boat rides to visiting a traditional Fijian village, there's a lot of fun to be had. A popular choice for all guests is travelling to the market. Every Saturday morning, you'll find local vendors selling freshly caught fish from the sunrise haul, nearby grown produce and hand-crafted gifts and wares. For a vibrant, cultural and exciting morning, this market is the place to be!
A flavour of Fiji
With endless exotic eating experiences to indulge in, you'll need something refreshing to wash it all down with. Fiji is world-renowned for its clean and crisp rums, locally produced Fiji bitter beer and tropical cocktail concoctions, and you can sip them all at our very own Lounge Bar. Spend an evening savouring these local delights and take the time to meet other families or simply enjoying the company of your own.
The Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort promises every single guest a marvellous time in every aspect of our 5 star Fiji resort and with full bellies and smiles all round, you'll be glad you came to stay!
