The wonderfully charming Tokoriki team will help guests appreciate the local culture during their stay. And there is so much to do: energise with tennis, explore island plants with ancient healing properties on a guided nature walk, visit the nearby local Yanuya island village, experience the traditional kava ceremony, meet the Fijian ladies at the handicraft beach markets, and receive a hearty welcome from the primary school students.

Tania M. shared her experience of Tokoriki Island Resort through a five-star TripAdvisor review: “There are not enough words to describe how beautiful this resort is. From the very beginning when the staff welcomed us to the island, to the very end, they remembered our names and greeted us each time we’d walk by. Our villa with the private pool was just exquisite and we enjoyed watching the sun set directly across from it each night. The dinner buffet on a Wednesday is something else! The fresh sushi was a personal highlight of ours. “The spa and couples massage was a dream come true and the hike up to the top of the hill is worth a visit too. It really was the best start to our honeymoon and is definitely worth every penny.” Company: Tokoriki Island Resort Contact: Patrice Belle Email: [email protected] Website: can always expect the work is executed to perfection, within the established budgets and time lines.
