Welcome to paradise. Born and raised on Oahu, i'd never imagine a place more beautiful than home. Until I got a chance to travel to Tavarua. The people, beaches, surf, food, and no phones! It's a little escape from the world, the workers on the island are THE kindest people I've ever met. We're friends on facebook and talk every... More

After many years of travelling to Fiji, we have finally found our happy place - Tavarua! It ticks all our boxes as a family, excellent surf, plenty of things to keep the kids occupied, great food and just the perfect week or R'n'r! We met some really great people and once again the staff were beautiful! Despite the U.S. Exchange... More

Not going back. Been there six times and after the decree it has been dodgy at best. The most frustrating thing is having a Fijian wahine occupy your room fo "housekeeping " fo hours during the day so you cannot takea nap etc... BTW the owners have palatial homes on the island that are funded on the backs of the... More

We area family of 4 (kids 9 and 7 yrs) and we had a great time during our week at Tavarua in October. The Island is stunning, but it is the staff, especially the local staff that make the place so special. From the ladies in the restaurant to the boatman, they are so friendly and wonderful. The only things... More

Cannot fault Tavarua. Service, accommodation, location and vibe are superb. It is very geared for surfers - so take that onboard when considering. There is fishing, SUPs, snorkelling but the island timetable is set to surfing. As a surfer I highly recommend it. The boat service and guides are super helpful (fetched my board after the leg rope snapped at... More

Tavarua is paradise on earth! Such a beautiful place! We went there with several other families and we all had a great time. We were there for a week and had great weather and surf every day. The kids spent most of the day in the pool. There's a heated pool next to the cold pool, so they can warm... More

We went to Tavarua in 2013 and it was the best trip of our lives. If you are into surfing then this is the destination of a life time. The staff is incredibly kind and the island is the most gorgeous place you will ever see. I spent a lot of time snorkeling and my boyfriend was in heaven surfing.... More

Amazing island, amazing resort, couldn't ask for more. We went with a group of 40 people and everyone on the island was extremely accommodating to all of our requests. We had the most incredible time ever and it was a trip of a lifetime. Food was amazing. Waves were epic. We can't wait to go back!!! I highly recommend Tavarua... More

Staff and employees at the island were super helpful and proactive to make us feel comfortable and safe all week. Surfing is world class, however there is something to do for everyone, from gym, to yoga, to scuba diving, snorkel, skate half pipe, kayaks or SUP. Food and accommodations, considering you are in a tiny island, was very good and... More
