Best place to be quarantined...
Tokoriki is a luxury resort on one of Fiji's many islands, accessible only by helo, but the resort is a dream. Despite the rough seas caused by a cyclone sitting off to the south, we were not able to kayak or paddle board. We did get out snorkeling and the coral is abundant -- live coral. But some of the snorkeling adventure was spoiled by murky waters. So, not the resort's fault, but a trick of mother nature's. The resort is beautifully decorated with native works and the staff are fabulous, especially Vincent, the mgr. who helped us with travel arrangements after the virus regs became serious. Staff made it a point to remember guests and always greeted us by name. They greeted us when we arrived with a musical performance and did the same when we left. But, the element I liked best was the outdoor shower. I'd build one off my own bathroom but we're in the PNW and would freeze our butts off. Unfortunately, I cannot get the photo edited right way up. :-(
Great Holiday Experience
What a wonderful place. So relaxing and friendly all the staff make a point of remembering everyone’s names. Food excellent! The musicians were good with typical Fijian songs and the greetings and farewell songs sung by the staff was tear jerking. It is one of those places where you could stay for a long time. I would recommend Tokoriki Island Resort to everyone it is an experience to remember for along time. Love and best wishes to everyone there.
Island vibes with flair
This resort was full of genuine pampering. The facility is very nice, the staff however, are excellent. They treat everyone with tenderness, care and love and it is hard not feel. In fact, there is no wifi in the rooms and certain dinner venues have wifi capabilities turned off to allow guests to escape cell phones, and enhance intimacy of the experience.
Too much Bula
Lovely flight to the resort on the heli with a warming welcome song. We stayed for a week. Villa was perfect with a wonderful view, infinity pool, beautiful gardens, and free laundry. Excellent food with way too big of portions. Very accommodating to this picky eater. Loved sitting outside for every meal. It did get very hot if u were not sitting where the breeze was Servers remembered names and favorite cocktails. If it’s your birthday expect a wonderful chocolate cake If you stay a week they do a Japanese hibachi for 4 couples. I would have elected out of this. The space is EXTREMELY hot with no air flow and there was no option to eat with a fork( I don’t do chopsticks well) and if u don’t drink wine no other option was given for that. (Liquor) The food wasn’t that good We did lots of the resorts boat trips. All were nicely planned and the guides were knowledgeable. Just not enough time in the water to snorkel. We also did a private boat charter which was the highlight to our trip. Sam and his little brother did an excellent job and let us snorkel our hearts out. Choose to snorkel outside of the house reef, it’s much clearer and with different fish. Saw a Rabbit fish for the first time and swam in a large school of squid The area is one of the prettiest in all of Fiji Loved that the beaches were kept clean of seagrass. Which is then taken out to feed the turtles Sometimes the Bula was overwhelming. Constantly saying it to every worker that passed and there were a lot All and all it was a wonderful place to stay
Tokoriki is a 5 star resort as far as the infrastructure goes. Beautifully maintained with gorgeous rooms, amenities and stunning landscaping. The kitchen produced wonderful food with well thought out and enticing presentations. I would order Kokoda each night if I could and loved the Tokoriki sandy ice cream. Our lunch waiter Tusi was w/o a doubt a part of the true heart of Tokoriki and he took special care of each guest with humor and a smile. Vincent the day manager was clearly very detailed oriented and seemed to care deeply about what each guest has to say and the other resort managers had equal levels of hospitality. Pool side services, while sporadic at best, we’re welcome additions to the day, from cocktail tastes, frozen towels to having your sun glasses cleaned. Every inch of the property was scrubbed, trimmed and arranged for the guests enjoyment...but, the reason I took off one star is that w/ the exception of Tusi and a couple of others, the service was 3 star at best. I soon learned it was unlikely that table service existed at all during cocktail hour. I would go to the bar to order our drinks and if they ask to bring them to you, pass or else it will be a long time before they arrive. Breakfast service was the same, coffee orders that never arrived or took 10 to 15 minutes. Very slow kitchen times and it was invariable we would be moving plates around the table to their rightful owners. Another slight bump in the road is the only resort offered snorkeling is the house reef, which was nice but really a wall. We paid for a couple of trips and the coral garden was spectacular but that and the turtles was pretty much it. My nitpicking may sound like a narrow mind but you can’t be a 5-star resort with super slow service, missed orders and sometimes zero cocktail service and “Fiji time” isn’t acceptable for 5 stars. On the upside, it is beautiful, super-relaxing and Tusi and Vincent did a great job.
