The resort overlooks Savasavu Bay. 

Located on the Fijian island of Vanua Levu, the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort’s 40 acres houses 25 oceanfront and garden bures overlooking Savasavu Bay. In addition to wood floors and traditional thatched roofs, the two level bures have private decks, hammocks and tropical gardens.

Menus at the restaurant change daily and feature dishes with Fijian, South Pacific, and Asian cuisines, sourcing fresh local ingredients. The resort also has a large on-site garden providing lettuces, passion fruit, herbs, and a wide variety of vegetables.

The beachfront spa offers treatments steps away from the sand. Couples can enjoy a day picnic and outing to Naviavia, a private secluded island a short boat ride from the resort. The resort’s world-class dive center offers excursions for every level amongst pristine coral reefs. Dive trips include swimming through grottos and underwater canyons and diving with sharks.

The resort’s Bula Club is complimentary and each child up to age five is assigned a nanny for the duration of their stay.

Fiji Airways provides direct flights to Nadi International Airport from a variety of U.S. cities as well as from Australia and New Zealand.  Upon arrival in Nadi, guests can  board a short flight to Savasavu Island where staff from Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort will pick them up in a complimentary shuttle.
