Thank u Kemu, Barbara, Masi and Siteri for making our 10 day stay memorable. Travelling with 3 children the youngest 14 months was going to be interesting but it was no problem at all. We were happily accomodated in one bure which were spacious, clean and modern for the area and having hot water for the kids showers was definitely... More

What a magical place. We were met at the Kadavu airstrip by Tulala, a boatman from Tiliva Village. We had a wonderful hour and a quarter boat ride through the clear waters between the island and the Astrolabe Reef. At the resort private beach we were greeted by owner Kemu, and Masi & Siteri. The resort has five spacious bures,... More

We arrived after a hour's journey by boat to be greeted by a pod of dolphins! That magical welcome set the scene for a really relaxing and enjoyable stay at Tiliva Resort. The bures are spacious and comfortable and the private beach, white sand and palm trees, was our own little piece of paradise. Our perfect hosts, Kemu and Barbara,... More

This place is absolutely beautiful. The gardens are stunning and beach is like your own private piece of paradise. The hosts Barbara and Kemu are extremely kind and helpful, along with the main staff member Massey who is very polite and courteous and will always greet you with his warm and welcoming smile. The rooms are large, clean and spacious... More

Tiliva Resort & Kadavu Island are special places in Fiji. As frequent visitors to Fiji, our stay was made special by the wonderful hosts (Barabara & Kemu) and all the staff particularly Masi who made us feel very special & were great company. Coming from working in a high pressure professional jobs this was the most relaxing place we have... More

I visited this resort in February 2012. A very authentic resort, next to Tiliva village with wonderful people leaving like 100 years ago, from gardening and fishing. Barbara and Kemu are distinguished hosts, very friendly and interested that you feel well, the food is excellent, bures very confi, nice and clean. What a pity that I didn't have enough money,...

Tiliva Resort and Kadavu Island exceeded all our expectations! We wanted a true Fijian experience, off the beaten tourist track, with great diving and we certainly got it. We loved that TIliva Resport is boutique style accommodation with only 6 bures, and has been beautifully set in its surroundings to ensure maximum privacy for its guests. We loved sharing meal...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Tiliva Resort, starting with the exhilarating boat journey from the airport up the coast of Kandavu. A highlight was sitting on the veranda of the main bure, drink in hand as the evening drew in, watching the colourful Kadavu parrots doing “fly pasts”. Barbara, Kim and their staff were very gracious and friendly hosts. The... More
