Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort

Lesiaceva Point, Vanua Levu, Northern, Fiji

Its scuba diving, children's program, and food have long made this one of Fiji's top resorts. Each day, kids have a choice of activities including village and market trips, rain-forest hikes, and organized snorkel trips that are often led by the resident marine biologist. A gorgeous split-level pool area has one part spilling into a second with tiled counters for bar service and luxurious canopied daybeds, making this possibly the chicest and most comfortable pool area in Fiji. The Oceanfront bure have newer furniture and larger closets than Garden Views as well as views of the ocean, but massage bure partially block the view of two. Both types have dual vanities set in attractive stone-tile counters and walk-in showers, and sleep four. Oceanfront suites have the addition of a double daybed in a front corner room and actually have smaller porches. Lunch and dinner feature international menus with choices of three appetizers, three or four entrées, and three desserts prepared by senior chefs the resort has trained overseas, and vegetarians will be extremely pleased. The first two kids under 12 stay free.
