“Luxury home away from home”
Reviewed 29 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The only thing that could improve Korovesi Villa is a sandy beach! Great fishing, delicious food and generous hosts in Mahesh and Monica who are only too keen to attend to your every need. A wonderrful venue for larger groups.

“Superb destination (shhhhh, best keep it a secret!)”

Korovesi is a superb property and a credit to its owners and caretakers. We enjoyed a memorable 14 nights with our extended family over Christmas and New Year and also celebrated a significant birthday whilst there. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect spot to down tools after a busy year and spend quality time together in this less touristy part of Fiji. Waking each morning to uninterrupted views of Savu Savu Bay, cup of tea in hand was an absolute treat, as was sitting down to three meals a day together, prepared by our wonderful husband and wife hosts Mahesh and Monica. Days were spent snorkelling at one of the many local reefs, exploring waterfalls, hiking, playing board games, taking the boat into town to browse the local market or enjoy a cold beer, reading books by the pool, playing table tennis and enjoying the zip line, lolling in one of the many hammocks and enjoying massages. "Fijian warrior" Savaki, was wonderful with our five boys ranging from three to thirteen, helping them make spears and playing touch rugby. There are many little things that are now great memories, such as when my son lost a tooth and Mahesh took him to bury it and plant a shrub to mark the spot! as well as the endless milo milks he delivered to the children and the delicious fresh lemon tea made by Monica. On our final morning we were sent off with freshly made pancakes wrapped for our journey home. We hope to return to this gem. But shhhhh, best keep it a secret!

“Ideal holiday location for a family group aged from 11 yrs to 84 yrs”
Reviewed 25 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

All members of our family group had an unforgettable holiday. We each participated in different activities, enjoyed the comforts and facilities at the Villa and were so well cared for by the villa personnel. We were treated like family and had lots of fun. All our expectations were not only met but exceeded. The accommodation was both spacious and comfortable with fantastic views over the seas from each individual villa. As the mother of the family group I would highly recommend Korovesi as a great family holiday destination with each family member being able to enjoy their own activities.but still all able to be together for most of the time. There was great fishing and the children were delighted with their catch
as well. Thank you to the staff at Korovesi for their hospitality and care.

“Korovesi Villa -The most beautiful and amazing family holiday destination you could experience.”
Reviewed 19 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We arranged to have my extended family stay at Korovesi Villa for my 50th birthday. there was 10 of us from 10yrs old to 86yrs old. The property itself was more then we could have expected, comfortable and luxurious. The manager, his family and staff that looked after us and provided all our catering and needs went beyond what we thought was possible, and made our holiday very unique. The catering for us was outstanding and service impeccable. The night of my birthday a Fijian Feast was arranged with a pig on the spit and freshly caught fish done in the lovo pit and many other fijian dishes to accompany this. The staff surprised me with the most beautiful decorations, cake, and we had a kava ceremony and the bulla band, a very wonderful evening for all. We were fortunate to be there when "the festival of lights' is celebrated, and enjoyed a day of cooking speciality Indian cuisine, dressing in traditional dress and watching endless fireworks through out the night, and are very thankful to the staff for this experience. We booked the boat for our week and our fishing experiences, daily, were wonderful and the variety of fish caught endless, and cooked in a variety of ways to perfection. The trip to Shy Guy beach was a wonderful day. Each day we had numerous choices from snorkelling, tubing. fishing, shopping, flying fox, walking or just relaxing and enjoying the pool, we achieved doing all and loved each day and the variety. We have travelled to Fiji before and have never had such an amazing holiday in our own resort and no crowds. Korovesi Villa is a piece of paradise with beautiful staff, it is truly outstanding. The owner Gavin was a pleasure to deal with and we look forward to coming back in 2015.

“EXCELLENT HOLIDAY”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My husband and I and our 3 boys have just had the most amazing family holiday ever at the end of September at Korovesi. The villa itself is amazing and one never grows tired of the incredible views and sunsets. The staff were absolutely fantastic and pampered us like any six star resort, but were also never intrusive. The tireless “manny” (Sovarki – not sure about the spelling!) kept our boys entertained for hours, taking them fishing and playing volleyball, and guiding them through the endless array of activities (trampoline, zip-line, mountain bikes etc etc) while the other staff attended to our every need. The food was amazing and the 3 meals we received each day would have done any Sydney restaurant proud! Overall the value was amazing (something that was highlighted when we spent the day in Denerau on the way home!).We will be back for sure in the next 12 months.
