Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort – Savusavu, Vanua Levu, Fiji

Heaven, Above and Below Water

Unless you’ve been living on another planet, you’ll recognize Jean-Michel Cousteau as the son of world-famous explorer and oceanographer Jacques Cousteau; you may surmise – correctly – that his resort offers an experience exceptional for its environmental consciousness.

Settled in a 17-acre ocean- front coconut grove and resembling a tradi­tional local village, the Cousteau resort is a progressive ecosensitive operation that, in addition to its undersea world, offers luxury, leisure, and languor thanks to a joint venture with California’s Post Ranch Inn. For divers and nondivers alike, the South Seas experi­ence served up here will be significantly different from that of other resorts.

Staff nat­uralists lead hikes through tropical rain forests and to neighboring Fijian villages; or enjoy a massage followed by a candlelit din­ner delivered straight to your private bunga­low veranda.

Still, this is essentially a scuba-diver’s utopia. Jean-Michel designed the resort’s 37-foot, state-of-the-art dive boat L’Aventure, whose captains and marine biolo­gists guarantee you the best dive experience possible in one of the most diverse and popu­lous marine habitats on earth. Jean-Michel is around often – who knows, you may go down under with Cousteau fils himself.
