“Fantastic for a group with kids”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Korovesi for ten glorious days. We had five adults and four children under the age of seven.
After a long haul to get there with the kids the welcome was fantastic, music and cool drinks and a quick introduction to the villa, allowing us to settle in quickly.

Mahesh, Monica, Jack and the team were fantastic and really made the holiday. Every day we had plenty to do as we had hired the boat for the duration and Captain Jack was always around for a fishing trip, snorkelling trip or even a trip into town.

The fishing was great with the big boys trolling in the channel early mornings coming back with spanish mackerel, tuna, barracoota and trevally. Jack took the smaller kids (and adults) out bait fishing, where he hooked a 4-5 metre sailfish…that got away! Snorkelling at Split Rock was great and snorkelling at Shy Guy Beach was amazing, just ask Jack where to look. The boat shed had kayaks and snorkelling gear that we took out when we had the time.

Other activities included a picnic at Blue Lagoon, a village visit with a waterfall swim, plenty of pool swimming, trampolining and zip lining. The main room has plenty of entertainment options to keep kids and adults busy as well.

Saving the best for last - Monica's kitchen. The food was awesome. A mix of Indian and Fijian and whatever else you could ask for. The fish we caught in the mornings was served for lunch and dinner - the different curries were a standout - not mind blowingly hot but full of fresh flavours. Other food highlights included a coconut pudding cooked in the hot springs, the eggless chocolate cake, the fish that had non fish eaters eating fish. The children were very well catered for with meal just before the adults - they did not go without at all. Every meal was restaurant quality in taste and service - eating like this in Melbourne each day would cost a packet. If you're a foodie, you'll love it.

The staff were fantastic, always willing to help. Mahesh went out of his way on several occasions, even offering lifts into town (although the bus was fun and taxis were cheap). All round we had a great time, and were loathe to leave…cant wait to go back

“an unforgettable, amazing, absolute total holiday experience”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The welcome we received to Korovesi set the standard for an incredible holiday. Mahese, Monika and the staff are a great asset to an amazing holiday villa. The location helps to make Korovesi ,giving it awesome views and the infinity pool adds another dimension. The swimming, snorkeling, and fishing make it well worthwhile including the boat and skipper ( Jack) in the package. The food is out of this world , full of wonderful flavors and very well presented. We felt like royalty being looked after so well!! Nothing was a problem , from a surprise engagement where they had a cake and decorations to celebrate to a rugby watching night with the tv and bar set up, and finger food for dinner. Our every whim was catered for. Can't wait to go back!!

“Fabulous holiday experience”
Reviewed 13 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

From the time we arrived at the magnificent front entrance until the time we left Mahesh, Monica and the team just took care of us so professionally. The catering was an absolute treat and always a wonderful surprise. The rooms were beautifully cared for and very comfortable.
The boat (and Jack) for trips and fishing was a not to miss add on.
Positioned where it is over Savusavu Bay made us feel like we were on top of the world. Amazing views, great pool, excellent staff responses.
The only negative , if it is one, is the lighting in the main room. It was difficult for reading which is often what a great holiday allows you time for.
Thanks Mahesh n the team for wonderful 5 days. Unforgettable.

“Best holiday ever!”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our family of 12, ranging between 4 years and 70 years of age, take a holiday together every couple of years. Korovesi has to be the best so far.
The beautiful villa was large and spread out enough to give us all privacy, the setting was magical and everything was clean and we'll maintained.
We were lucky enough to have a week of beautiful weather, so we're able to enjoy the pool and hammocks every day. There were plenty of board games to amuse the children, ping pong, a flying fox and ball games.
Mahesh was the perfect host and organised many outings for us, we enjoyed his company and knowledge as he took us to a waterfall to swim and villages to meet the locals. He also took us into Savusavu regularly to shop and stock up on cocktail ingredients!
Captain Jack was a favourite also with my fishing mad family. Each morning 3 adults would join him at 6am.they to go out fishing, watch he sun rise and have dolphins dance around the bow. We never came back empty handed, there are plenty of fish to be caught in that beautiful bay. We were generally back by 8am to 8.30 am, in time for another cooked breakfast, which always included a fruit tray and something 'special', freshly made doughnuts, waffles or breakfast cake. Jack also took us on wonderful beach trips and snorkeling trips. He also took the children out in the boat, just out from the villa, with hand lines to fisH, much to their delight. Both Monica and Mahesh are great cooks and we enjoyed a huge variety of food, they were happy to cook food especially for the childrens taste and a bit earlier than the adults. Mahesh is amazing with the pizza oven and BBQ. Savusavu was very special as we rarely saw another tourist, so nice in this day to enjoy an area so untouched or spoilt by tourism. None of us had an anniversary or birthday, but it didn't stop a touching celebratory night where I was presented with a beautiful cake made by Monica, which had written on it, Happy Ohana (family). Many thanks to Mahesh, Monica, Jack and staff at Korovesi.
