Introduction

Built on the site of a former coconut plantation overlooking Savusavu Bay, the award winning 17 acre Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort is one of the most renowned in the South Pacific.

Epitomising tranquillity and serenity, this resort features just 25 luxuriously appointed bures with views of the coral reefs and mountains beyond. Each bure offers plush king-sized beds, over-sized bathrooms and private decks, epitomising privacy and luxury in a quintessential Fijian setting.

Dining at Jean Michel Cousteau Resort is an experience in itself, with Executive Chef, Raymond Lee creating culinary masterpieces inspired by the Fijian surroundings and also his Asian heritage. His renowned dishes are made from seasonal, local produce much of which is picked straight from the resorts very own organic garden and served alongside an extensive wine list with glorious views over Savusavu Bay.

Jean Michel Cousteau Resort is also renowned for its indulgent spa where you can relax in the privacy of one of the beachfront bures designed to induce harmony and balance the senses or alternatively you can rise early and practice restorative yoga as the sun rises over the tranquil waters of Savusavu Bay just steps away.

If being out and about is more appealing, you can partake in one of the many water-based activities the resort offers. From glass bottom boat tours to fishing, scuba diving, sailing and paddle boarding, there is something for everyone at Jean Michel Cousteau Resort. The resort also offers eco tours with marine biologists to explore the mangroves, traditional village visits, highland hikes, guided kayaking tours of the bay and even private island tours where there will be nothing but you, the powdery sand beneath your toes and the gentle sound of the rippling ocean.

All rates are fully inclusive (alcoholic drinks require a supplement) and include return transfers from Savusavu airport.
