Unique Sleeps: Amazing hotels hand picked by Expedia Experts. Musket Cove Island Resort and Marina, Fiji
Nestled on a lush 400-acre portion of the island of Malolo Lailai in Fiji’s wider Mamanuca volcanic archipelago, Musket Cove Island Resort and Marina is a place expressly reserved for those occasions when you want to feel truly special. It’s a place to unwind, check your speed (the pace of island life in this region is famously unhurried), let go of worldly concerns and focus on relaxation and enjoyment.
From the moment you enter the Fijian family owned and operated resort, you feel embraced by the attentive staff whose only desire is to treat you to the holiday of a lifetime – and leave having had a real taste of Fiji’s rich island culture.
With only 55 rooms, villas and bures dotted across the lagoon and beachfront, privacy and comfort is assured. Choices range from hotel-style rooms in the shared, colonial-inspired Raintree House to luxurious two-bedroom Island Villas on the water’s edge of a private islet in the centre of an inland lagoon ringed by coconut palms.
Open-plan Garden Bures, immaculately furnished and generously air-conditioned, are perfect for families and those looking for a longer stay. Traditional Fiji-style Beachfront Bures, just steps from the temperate, lapping waters, are popular with couples and honeymooners.
A complimentary daily buffet breakfast is enhanced by gourmet in-room coffee and Twinning’s tea selection, to-die-for island-baked coconut lime shortbreads replenished in your room daily, free snorkelling (brilliant for the kids!) and shopping excursions to the local village and host of other minor details that make all the difference to your stay.
Laid back dining is definitely the go here; fresh local ingredients – much of it sourced from the resort’s own organic farm – are transformed into unique Fijian culinary experiences. Of course no resort would be complete without a quality swim-up bar – and Musket Cove’s delivers on all fronts. Or for something extra special, you can opt for private dining experiences ranging from a champagne picnic on a secluded beach, to a romantic candlelit dinner under the heavy South Pacific skies at the end of a private jetty.
