Koro Sun Resort in northern Fiji offers discerning travelers brand-new Edgewater Floating Bures among tropical rainforest and clear blue waters. The eight adults-only Edgewater Floating Bures are a unique aspect to the resort and are the first of its kind in the South Pacific. The 50-room resort is a truly authentic Fijian experience, full of relaxation, adventure, and romance.

The luxurious Floating Edgewater Bure offers a direct on-the-water experience complete with your own personal kayak tied to your private front deck and floating within the protected marina of the resort. It provides the best ocean view at the resort and an unmatched waterfront experience in Fiji! The bure is 380 square feet decked in traditional Fijian style with native Dongo wood accents and thatched roofs. The bures are located in the adults-only peninsula of the resort, a coconut plantation of 160 tropical acres.

The resort also recently unveiled another type of accommodation called the Edgewater Bures. Each bure is found next to the water’s edge, with a private beach area and ladder that leads directly into the lagoon. You can’t ask for closer proximity to the lagoon and the beach than in the bures! Built with romance in mind, the spacious accommodation offers great water views from the lounge area and master bedroom.

Explore Northern Fiji

Americans love northern Fiji for its exotic tropical jungle paradise mixed with white sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters that go on forever. After returning, our clients who have been to many tropical paradises tell us they have never seen or experienced anything like northern Fiji. It’s not only about the beauty of the land and the water but also about the beauty of the local people.

Koro Sun offers many opportunities to get immersed in the Fijian lifestyle and culture, and we highly recommend taking advantage of this during your stay.  Visit a local village to interact with some of the sweetest children you will ever meet. They will invite you in their school and even sing to you before you leave. With music being such an important part of Fijian upbringing, they have some of the most beautiful voices. You can also attend Sunday church service to hear them sing.

The Fijians will teach you about the lovo (an underground oven for cooking food) during lovo night and perform meke (Fijian dance). You can also learn about pearl farming and the importance of coconuts or try your luck at handline fishing, which is most often used to catch ground fish, squid, and other species. You can even attend a cooking class to learn how to prepare Kokoda (Fijian ceviche).

For the adventurous, you can kayak to Lotu Island, cycle the Hibiscus Highway for scenic coastline views, trek through the rainforest and do a herbal walk to learn about Fijian remedies. Look for rare birds, take a dip in the waterfalls, snorkel in coral gardens with bright-colored fish, or even play golf at the nine-hole golf course at the resort.

For an additional charge, guests can go to Split Rock to snorkel and dive (Koro Sun has a PADI-certified SCUBA diving operation), visit a pearl farm, look for dolphins in Natewa Bay, have a private picnic lunch on the beach, experience a local market, or tour the hidden waterfall.

Fijian Cuisine

The resort has two restaurants and two bars for you to enjoy.  Matakau Restaurant is the resort’s main dining venue that serves fresh, locally sourced food. A stay at the resort is inclusive of three meals a day (excluding alcoholic beverages). For lunch and dinner, the resort offers gourmet three-course meals. It also caters to vegetarians and vegans. At night, Fijians will serenade you during cocktail hour.

The Seaside Restaurant, on the other hand, has gorgeous views and is open only on select days for a romantic setting.  You must sample Koro Sun’s specialty, Ika Kovu. It is steamed fish wrapped in banana leaves with a creamy dill sauce, served with cassava chips. Yum!

Rainforest Spa

The calming rainforest setting will leave you with an experience that you’ll always remember. Detox with a banana leaf body wrap with leaves from the resort’s grove and let your feet soak in the rainforest foot refresher of coconut oil and peppermint. Or relax with the papaya enzyme facial to revitalize your face.

Visit Koro Sun by a direct flight into Nadi and then a short 60-minute flight up to northern Fiji’s Savusavu.
