This hotel is much needed in a small town like Levuka. As i traveled alone i was very bored at the end of my stay. the rooms are very clean, beds are good and breakfast is lovely. I would highly recommend this place if it wasn't for the lazy staff and lack of basic amenities. Beware of the below: -there... More

It is a small hotel in a little town. The 2 story building is on the main waterfront street of the charming historic town of Levuka. Everything is in walking distance anyway. Yes it is clean , has breakfast included in the price and sometimes the Wi-Fi is working . (not during our stay) . Since you don't expect anything... More

We arrived at the New Mavida Lodge following a long bus/ferry/bus ride from Suva. The views from the bus of the countryside north of Fiji were lovely and the only delays we experienced were for refuelling the ferry at the dock at Natovi Landing, but refreshments were available. The ferry, too, had a lounge and refreshments area. We arrived in... More

The New Mavida is a great accommodation option in Levuka, The interior is newly finished with lovely marble, gorgeous chandeliers, as well as beautifully furnished. The showers were piping hot, the beds tidy with fresh new sheets, and the meals were excellent. I stayed in the dorm which was quite comfortable, and Pacepe was a wonderful host. Very pleased with...

Before I start - the above rating is because there is not a lot to compare New Mavida with. We attended a beautiful local wedding at Leveuka Village and New Mavida was literally a 5 minute walk. This is a local Guest House with a variety of accommodation options ranging from FJD 30 to FJD 120 - Dorm style vs... More

The hotel is very clean and spacious, breakfast included, hot showers, and they have free Internet! They have some different rooms to choose from, we stayed in a dorm, but the private rooms looked really nice as well! Well worth for the money. And only one minute walk from "downtown" Levuka. Staff is very nice and helpful. Probably the best... More

Brilliant place to stay when visiting Levuka! The staff are so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble! The place is so clean and the food is just delicious for a very reasonable price... Can't thank the team enough for making my visit to the island a fab and chilled out time!

Bula to Pasepa and the girls and vinaka vaka levu for a wonderful stay at your place. Your warm welcome and eating recommendations on arrival were greatly appreciated 'cos if you arrive by ferry and transfer you arrive by about 5.30pm and you are wacked. A shower, dinner and bed is all we could manage with a 4 yr old... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. The room was wonderful - quiet, clean, lovely balcony and comfy bed.The staff here (as, indeed, the people in Levuka) are amazingly friendly and welcoming, they even picked up my jeans and tee shirts that I left on the floor one morning and washed them for me. I arrived back from a jungle tour and... More

New Mavida Lodge is about half a kilometre up the coast from Levuka town centre, near the War Memorial. It still looks very new and very clean, compared to anywhere else in Levuka. We were welcomed on a [very wet] arrival with cups of tea and slices of cake. The dormitory [around F$30] of 9 beds is all newish, with... More
