Koro Sun ResortOf the 54 accommodations at this 160-acre resort on Vanua Levu, 10 of them are a “first” for the South Pacific – floating bures (think a Fijian version of a houseboat) that sit directly on top of the water, gently rocking on the incoming and outgoing tides. Each one comes with a two-man kayak tethered to the front deck, which you can use to cruise through the lagoon and surrounding coastline. There are also 10 “Edgewater” bures, which are more like traditional overwater bures, each with a private terrace with daybed, and ladder leading to the lagoon below. Set back from the beach and climbing up the hillside are 34 1- and 2-bedroom bures, some with pools, that offer a little more space and privacy. For even more space and privacy, there are three hilltop villas with kitchenettes and private plunge pools. Koro Sun isn’t all-inclusive, but breakfasts are included, and you can buy a meal plan to eat at one of the two restaurants. Parents can carve out time to partake of a vast variety of free activities (and supplemental excursions), or enjoy the adults-only pool and swim-up by taking advantage of the free child care for kids 5 and under, and the kids club for those 12 and under.
