On Trend at Musket Island Resort
Fiji’s oldest operating resort is undergoing a transformation, taking it to the next level in style and elegance. We met the locals and fell in love with this village within a village.June 13, 2018

At four o’clock every afternoon the Island Bar at Musket Cove Island Resort puts on quite a show. Locals, visiting yachties, resort guests, guests from neighbouring resorts and even a few people from the mainland congregate on the bar stools as they wait for sunset.
This is no ordinary resort bar, in fact it doesn’t feel like you’re at a resort at all – and that’s just the way the guests seem to like it.
The drinks are cheaper, the guests all seem to know each other and there are families standing around a barbie cooking dinner.
The pace of life is smooth and unhurried and again a community feel prevails. The staff will play beach volleyball with the guests, not because they have to, but because it’s home to them too.
Of the resort’s 55 rooms, over half have been renovated. The offerings range from beachfront adults-only fares with separate living rooms to family units with plunge pools.
The new pool area with private cabanas is gorgeous and uncrowded. In fact nothing at Musket is crowded – you can wander the island and hardly see another soul, right up until sunset of course, when the troops all gather at the Island Bar.
Musket Cove Island Resort caters to families and couples, groups and the passing yachties keen to stretch their legs and enjoy an air conditioned room for a while.
Whilst the neigbouring resorts attract schoolies, Musket attracts schooners. The private marina offers a launching point for unforgettable fishing, scuba diving, snorkelling, surfing and sailing excursions, while watersports like paddle boarding, kayaking, catamaran sailing and windsurfing await on the resort’s beach.
Whether you’ve come to do everything or absolutely nothing at all, Musket Cove Island Resort & Marina offers an authentic Fiji holiday experience. It is a village within a village and you’ll leave feeling part of the family.
Twice daily connections are available from Denarau on the Malolo Cat or seaplane transfers can be arranged from Nadi International Airport.
