Coconut Rating System
What is 1 coconut accommodation? Dorms and Bures. The accommodation is typically basic but usually in really beautiful locations. Often these resorts do not have hot water, however; the local water supply is tepid. More than likely, you will have a fan as opposed to air-conditioning. All these resorts are run by Yasawan Fijians who love hosting you and sharing their lives with you. Bring your own towel, soap, and other necessities. Meals are included in the price. If you need a hairdryer, 1 coconut accommodation is maybe not for you!
What is 2 coconut accommodation? Dorms and Bures. These resorts are more modern properties with a higher standard of accommodation and amenities than the 1 coconut accommodation. Although more modern, the properties still have a strong Fijian flavor to make you feel welcome and immerse you in Fijian way of life. You could either have a fan or air-conditioning in your room and meals are included with optional upgrades. With all 2 Coconut properties, we have compulsory meal packages that are payable in FJD to the resorts directly. Look into a 1 coconut package if you are looking for somewhere more basic.
