The diving that is offered at the resort is an experience to be treasured with wonderful underwater scenery worthy of mention in top dive publications. According to one reviewer, she said that the diving was not to some scruffy reef with every polyp kicked off the coral but to a wonderful reef.

Special mention should be made of the Koro Sun Resort’s excursion to the nearby waterfall. It is privately owned and is pure magic to swim under. Before the trip to the waterfall is completed, a small gift is presented to the villagers where the waterfall is located. This is like a protocol that is followed in many villages and is good thing to experience. Of course, the friendliness of the Koro Sun Resort staff is almost legendary, starting with the welcome. They greet you by name, sing a welcome song, provide a cool drink and then massage your feet. What a way to start your vacation. Koro Sun is a luxury resort and can be accessed by a short flight from the International Airport in Nadi, Fiji with a 15 minute drive.
