This property on Vanua Levu's southern coast has been considerably upgraded in recent years by its American owners, who will gladly sell you a piece of paradise and build a custom-designed home on it (the resort rents luxury villas already built by its landowners). The Hibiscus Highway runs along the shoreline, separating the property from the lagoon. The resort offers a bit of beach, and a swimming hole has been dredged into the shallow reef. A lagoonside restaurant and bar sit on a landfill by a marina, also blasted into the reef. Koro Sun sports two outdoor pools (the more attractive reserved for adults only), and a 9-hole, par-3 golf course. A dirt track leads around the course and through a rainforest to the resort's own refreshing cascades, where you can take a cold dip or be pampered in the spa's two screened bungalows. On the way are six "Raintree Villas" beside one of the fairways; each of these units has two bedrooms, a bathroom, its own pool, and a full kitchen. The land turns quickly from flat coastal shelf to hills, where most of the guest bungalows are perched, thus commanding views through the palms to the sea. All these hillside units have screened porches. One has a separate bedroom, another has two bedrooms. The octagonal honeymoon bure is the most deluxe and private. Down at sea level, the "garden" units lack views but have small front yards behind picket fences, plus four-poster beds with mosquito nets. All bungalows have outdoor showers behind high rock walls.
