I have never written a review on the many trips we've been on but I've never experienced a trip like the one to Savusavu, Fiji where we stayed at JMC. The property is gorgeous, the staff is friendly, and the Bula club makes the trip! The food was fresh and yummy. I felt completely satisfied after each meal without the bloat of too much salt. Everything was fresh... My husband and I enjoyed a lot of peacefulness and alone time as our two young girls were in the Bula Club from the start. Upon arrival, we joked that this trip was for them as they had participated in kayaking (with blankie in tow), snorkeling, and all the activities at the club within the first few hours. My husband and I simply looked at each other and said, "what are we going to do?" Well, we found ourselves snorkeling a few times every day, deep sea fishing and catching enough fish to feed the resort and the village, relaxing with massages and foot scrubs, and drinking by the pool. Our favorite spot was the lounge right along the water, watching the hermit crabs climb around a nearby tree. Speaking of hermit crabs, our girls LOVED the crabs and holding the races. While on the private island, we collected sea cucumbers, blue starfish, and many, many hermit crabs and held several races. The various excursions were all great. I do not regret spending any time participating in these excursions as I often felt in the past. Touring and participating in the village activities was fantastic, the hike to the waterfall was so much fun, and I brought home a few black pearls from the pearl farm. Okay, the bad news: while this eco lodge is luxury, me and my youngest daughter were creeped out by the flying cockroaches. There's not much more the staff can do to keep these critters away but I was ready to go after waking up to one in my hair on the last night. The other drawback to the entire trip was saying goodbye. Our girls were upset to say goodbye to Leba at the end and still often talk about her and wanting to see her again. My youngest had a dream about being with Leba again and this is several months after our trip. We LOVE JMC and the staff and will return again, especially since our daughter has informed us that she will live there one day...
