We didn't stay here, but the restaurant was Fijian home cooking at its finest. It seems as though one woman puts it all together, and she does a fine job Beautiful music, kava passed around, and very friendly people! Beautiful moonlight on the beach across the street.

This is a humble and sweet place owned and run by a Fijian family and when you stay here you feel like you have become one of them. The Bure's are delightfully dilapidated, but in a completely functional way and the care and attention you receive from the Fijian family and staff will warm you heart. The food is simple... More

We had a really good time with the Tovu Tovu because the location in Northern Taveuni (Matei) is ideal for all activities like hiking, beach, snorkeling and just getting to know this different part of Fiji. Once you enjoy the view from the opposite beach and see all the surrounding Islands like Rabi, Vanua Lewu, Quewa etc you realize that... More

It's getting harder to find these one star 'resorts' nowadays, but this one is a great example. Not cheap, but filled with poor facilities. For example, no hot tap in the bathroom sink, a mattress that would have been average when bought 10 years ago, a four speed overhead fan that actually only knew flat-out, every tap dribbling 24/7. Anything... More

We spent 4 nights in a bure with kitchenette. The owner was very pleasant to deal with as was the staff. We had a reasonable stay here, but I would like to be honest about the accommodation. We found the bure to be quite worn in places, and could really do with a spruce up. Beside the basic setup, we... More

We spent 6 nights at Tovu Tovu. The staff were fantastic, they helped with organising activities but were never pushy and let us operate at our own pace. We had privacy but could always find someone when we needed to. The food was fresh and tasty and well priced. Also byo with no corkage which was much appreciated. The kitchenette... More

Although the resort unfortunately does not have a beach or sea-view, as it is located across the road for the sea, this is an idyllic place where one can enjoy the tranquillity of Fiji. Taveuni is very different (fortunately) than the hyped up, touristy islands on the Western side of Fiji. The bures are basic, but comfortable and clean, with... More

Clean (though a bit tired) Bures freshened up beautifully daily (with flowers too).. Slow ceiling fan but good bed and everything worked in little kitchen and... More
