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 hair dryer, 1 coconut accommodation is maybe not for you! Look into a 2 or 3 coconut package if you are looking for somewhere a bit more modern.

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 flavour 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. Look into a 1 coconut package if you are looking for somewhere more basic or a 3 coconut package if you’re looking for somewhere with more modcons.

What is 3 coconut accommodation?
Bures only.
Typically these are small resorts, offering a very personal experience at great value prices. On arrival, you will most likely welcomed with a cocktail, before treating yourself to a la carte or buffet dining. Many properties have a meal package plan that you pay for upon check-in at the resort. All rooms have air-conditioning or fans, ensuite bathrooms with all necessities and towels supplied. All 3 coconut resorts are right on the beach in beautiful, often secluded locations. Look into 2 or 3 coconut packages if you’re looking for accommodation a little less polished.

GENERAL NOTES:
Group travel:
Awesome Adventures Fiji packages are not organised group travel: we do not take you on a ‘tour’ however, local guides are available at many of our destinations. Booking a package simply means that you can book your accommodation, transfers and activities in one easy itinerary - and don’t forget we have created these packages with what we consider to be the ‘Yasawa must-dos’, meaning you will see the best of Fiji's islands.

Sundays:
Sundays are a day of rest and church going in the Yasawas. This means that conducted activities are not on offer however; you are free to do activities on your own. In most villages you will be welcome to join the church service and we recommend you do – it’s an amazing experience! When travelling on a Full Monty package, your activities will be arranged around this. 

Free coach pick-ups:
We are more than happy to pick you up from your accommodation on the day of departure for the transfer to Denarau Marina. All you need to do is advise reservations on where you are staying. 

Check in:
If you want to avoid morning queues on the day of departure, you are most welcome to check in at our Port Denarau counter the day prior to departure any time after 9:30am. You will be given all the necessary documents so you can just board the vessel directly the following day. 

Meals:
Meals are included for 1 and 2 coconut packages. Where an additional price is shown under ‘Meals’ these rates are per person, per night and include 3 meals per night stayed. The meal package must be taken, as there is no alternative dining places. The cost should be paid directly to the resort in Fijian dollars on check-in. If you are traveling on a 3 coconut package, your meals are not included and will need to be purchased from the resort.
