An Absolute Must - but book well in advance
Jul 2019
Vinaka Matthew and Natasha for a most wonderful experience we have ever encountered on our many foodie events. All the reviews are true and accurate and when you arrive, it is even more so! Natasha and Matthew are truly modern day missionaries with a remarkable vision on living sustainably from the 100's of vegetables, fruits, berries, leaves (the lemongrass and holy basil tea was to die for!!) and amazing edible flowers is truly a gift Taveuni have been blessed with. Not to mention what these two have done for the local villages.
Well done and, again thank you so much for allowing us to be part of your lives.

An unforgettable Experience.
Aug 2019
I have been to Taveuni on numerous occasions, and had only ever heard stories and seen photos of Gaiatree from friends and via social media So we were absolutely buzzing when we finally got to go.
And even though our curiosity was amped, it didn't prepare us for the overall EPIC experience. Deeply Visceral, and yet the attention to detail in every aspect from Architecture, to presentation (location, presentation, vegetation, Vista's and a non stop taste sensation) overall filled us in more ways than one!
And such amazing hosts too in Natasha, Matt and the crew.
We will most certainly be heading back!
Loved every moment and the Food...ah the Food! I dread looking at the photos I took because it doesn't do it justice ha ha. You gotta do the SOLS Tour!

Jul 2019 • Friends
Gaiatree Sanctuary is a great day out when on Taveuni.Take the whole day to disvover the hospitality offered by Matthew and Natasha and their Team. Learn about their organic garden and enjoy the delicious food. The attention to detail, beautiful setting, cleanliness and presentation is second to none. I run a resort on Taveuni and I want all of my Guests to experience this day trip. I know they will love it as I did. I really enjoyed the garden tours, the yummy vego food, the drinks and the easy and welcoming conversation all day. Cannot wait to go back!

What an Amazing Hidden Gem on Taveuni
Jul 2019 • Couples
We were greeted by a welcoming and friendly Matthew and after a small car trip up the steep mountain we arrived at the most spectacular Gaiatree Santuary and the effervescent Natasha.
After a delicious welcome drink we were taken on a tour of the kitchen garden by the Matthew. The stories and the knowledge he has is contagious, we then retreated for fresh sugarcane mojitos before indulging in what can only be described as the most inspiring delicious and healthy lunch from mostly items harvested from the gardens.
After lunch a small treck through the farming lands to the waterfall they had us backing up for more delights from the kitchen.
Matthew, Natasha and all the staff are truly amazing, generous and inspiring people. The food, the produce and the Hospitality are world class and I cannot recommend this tour enough.
Thank you for an amazing experience on Taveuni.
Do yourself a favour book your tour well in advance, you will be glad you did.

FANTASTIC FOR VEGANS 💚💚💚
May 2019 • Couples
Gaiatree is owned, built and ran by the most beautiful couple in Fiji! Not only did Matt and Natasha remember our names (out of a 14 member tour!) But they also remembered we're vegan and would appear from their gorgous smelling kitchen with vegan versions of the very few non vegan items! The tour is so incredibly unique and inspiring and Matt is funny and charming for the entirety! If you'd like to see some Fijian jungle farming at its best than this is the place for you! The domes are gorgous and so original, made by the couple themselves and the food was honestly other worldly! Such beautiful, fresh and organic ingredients. We left full, happy and ENVIGORATED! I'm so in love with Gaiatree and from one young, vegan traveller to the hundreds of others, get your butt here.

Bula Nyrvelli! Thank you for sharing your review and spreading Taveuni love around the world. Our hope has always been to create an experience that complements the other amazing activities on the island - a perfect 'dry' day after a week of diving 🙂 Booking in advance is a great tip, especially between May and October.

The drive up Gila Road to Gaiatree Sanctuary is more than worth the spectacular
views. Natasha and Matthew have built an amazing eco-friendly place of ,respite,
enrichment and food that will have you craving more. The 8 acre parcel is full
of both native and imported species of food trees, bushes, plants, roots, and herbs
that will delight every palate. It is a definite YES stop for all who travel to Taveuni.

Vinaka Vakalevu Becky! Your kind review means the world to our whole team. Creating a safe organic haven for endangered native plants and traditional medicines has been a top priority for us from the beginning. Working with the local women to create recipes with the fresh local greens has been a delightful (and tasty) adventure that we love to share with visitors from around the world.

Definitely worth visiting for anyone who likes gardens, plants, backyard animals and even a spot of Fiji Rum. The reviews are not even exaggerating. The place is better than what we expected. The hosts and their staff do an amazing job. Identifying each plant and its uses. Super delicious meal with superb presentation. Well worth the time and money to experience their sanctuary, their hospitality, their lunch and their drinks. Did I mention the Fiji Rum?

Bula Simon! Vinaka for sharing your review with world travelers heading to Fiji. We understand it's an adventure and journey to get to Taveuni, but worth it! Everyone that makes that extra effort to step off the beaten track deserves VIP treatment and we were so pleased to hear that your family day in the Fiji Food Forest was even better then expected. It's our team's pleasure to open the dome doors and share the best of the best with all the brave souls that come up that jungle road! Loloma from Team Gaiatree 🌿

A tour of a self sufficient farm in paradise
Oct 2018 • Friends
Taking a tour here will be well worth it if you are lucky enough to visit Taveuni island in Fiji. The tour will show you where and how bananas, coconuts, mangos, papayas, and many other fruits and vegetables are grown on this small beautiful farm overlooking the South Pacific. Best of all you will get to eat a delicious lunch with many courses all prepared with love made fresh that day straight from the garden. The presentation of these beautiful dishes will have you taking many pictures to show your friends and family. I will never forget this experience. Thank you Matt and Natasha!

Vinaka Rick! Appreciate your feedback very much, it was a pleasure to be part of your journey to Fiji. The entire process of growing organic super-foods is very rewarding (and tasty) and that's one part of the Sanctuary story we love to share with guests. The local team has discovered that food can be art too - adding fresh garnish and edible flowers to "elevate your plate" to photo worthy status - everyone was thrilled that we accomplished this on your tour. We had an amazing visit with you and hope to see you on a return trip one day soon. Loloma from Team Gaiatree 🌿
