Fodor's Review

Guests of all kinds are drawn to the pristine rain-forest-and-lake setting of this ecofriendly resort. Tour groups and backpackers are happy with the clean, comfortable dorms and single bedrooms, couples content with the small double-bed rooms with a shared porch overlooking one of the lakes, and families enjoy the privacy of well-spaced, split-level bures with equal or better views. The larger lake was created when a 110-foot deep gravel quarry hit water during a storm

one night and flooded, leaving a bulldozer and two 10-ton trucks submerged. Locals swim here (no, you can't scuba dive) but guests generally stick to the pool, with its bar, TV, occasional on-stage meke (traditional performance) Tuesday and Sunday nights, and BBQ buffet lunch with a live band on Sunday. Locals frequent the eclectic restaurant overlooking the lake for its Cajun chicken salad, and breakfast here is great value. A 15-minute taxi or bus ride from the city center, it's a minute's walk from Colo-I-Suva Forest Park.
