About the resort
Our intimate luxury resort is the ideal setting for a five-star family holiday in Fiji. Situated in the pristine, tranquil surrounds of Savusavu Bay, the resort is equipped with everything you and your kids could ever need to enjoy unspoiled traditional Fiji to the fullest. The gentle waters of Savusavu beach are perfect for the whole family to enjoy, while the resort itself has a wide range of amenities to make your stay a memorable one. From beautifully appointed family bures, to fun activities the whole family can share, your holiday experience can be whatever you want it to be – whether it’s some quality time with the kids, or going on exciting excursions to discover more about the local environment and the Fijian way of life. Our conservation heritage means that we endeavour to preserve the pristine nature of our tropical surroundings while offering premium holiday services. This makes us the perfect base for you and your children to discover the natural wonder of Fiji during our complimentary resort activities.
When you come for a luxury family holiday at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, kids aged 12 and under will have access to our award winning Bula Club, where they can dive into a range of fun and educational activities while you enjoy a little quiet time. Located a short walk from the centre of the resort, facilities include a family and junior pool with a water slide, a nursery bure, toddlers mushroom cascading pool, trampoline, jungle gym and flying fox, not to mention a fabulous treehouse in the grounds. In addition, the Bula Club offers a range of activities tailored towards different age groups. This means children can look forward to spending their days learning about Fijian culture or arts and crafts, exploring coral reefs, helping with mangrove replantation projects or baking with sun oven. Our Bula Club reflects the resort’s commitment to children as the future caretakers of the earth and its oceans. Each day offers unforgettable adventures and enriching activities that teach our younger guests about Fijian Culture and island environment. Unlike other resorts, we cater for babies and toddlers, as well as older children. Each child under 6 will be assigned their own personal nanny from 9am-9pm, while children 6-12 years will be assigned a Fiji buddy in a group of up to 5 children. Bula Club is complimentary for all families staying at the resort.
Johnny Singh, our resident marine biologist, offers dedicated family snorkel trips for all to enjoy the huge diversity of marine life and beautiful corals of Fiji. Each child will receive their very own JMC passport upon arrival, which they can fill with stamps as they complete various cultural and marine activities. When their passport is full, it will be signed by Johnny Singh – a special souvenir your children can bring home with them!
With our wide range of family-friendly activities, you and the kids will never be short of things to do. A favourite activity for all ages is our daily family snorkel trip in the glass bottom boat. The nannies take the younger kids out for viewing only, whilst the older kids can snorkel with their buddy or parents. There is also the private island experience, where the whole family can escape for the day to their very own island, just a short boat ride away from the resort. Want to explore a little more of Fiji? We also have a number of excursions to sites of interest around the resort, from a trip to the local market, all the way to a traditional Fijian village experience at Nukubalavu. Some of our popular offsite activities for older children include our rain forest and waterfall walk, mangrove tour and sword carving demonstration as well as visits to the local village and school. If the kids still have energy to burn off, they can participate in the supervised Bula Club activity program, while you laze by the pool or pay a visit to our spa for a relaxing massage.
