Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort’s philosophy is to strive to maintain nature’s balance by respecting and participating in the living vitality of its environment. The Fijian people have flourished for more than 3,000 years by living off the natural bounty that surrounds them. Jean-Michel Cousteau and his team of conservationists believe modern society can learn a lot about achieving a sustainable environment from their agricultural and fishing practices.
The seas provide the fish served for dinner, the trees produce coconuts that are served to the resort’s guests, and the rain sends water to flow from the tap in the bures. The resort also features an organic garden that is meticulously cared for by the staff. Resort-wide edible vegetation means guests can enjoy tropical fruits including pineapple, mango, papaya, coconut, guava and more, all included in the edible landscaping.
Additionally, the resort is located in a marine protected area. The resort practices recycling and composting, the utilization of low-energy lighting, solar panels on water heaters for some bures, and uses environmentally friendly chemicals in the laundry and kitchen. The timber used for construction comes from certified forests, and the restaurant menu does not include reef fish or farmed prawns.
A vacation at Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort offers an unforgettable personal experience that is derived from the natural beauty of the island and the warmth of the staff. For more information, please visit www.fijiresort.com.
