Recently stayed here and had a fantastic stay. You really get immediately immersed in 'Fiji time" staying here. Low key, relaxed and mellow! The staff was excellent. Bose, Lui, Langi, and Nui were fantastic. The food was adequate, but you don't go to Fiji for the food! If you are a foodie, go to Paris!

I was there for 9 nights last august, it was a very good stay, beautiful atmosphere, the food is good, excellent excursions, and the most of all is the kindness of the staff, you come as a client and you live as a member of a family ;-)

Maravu logde is a nice place to stay as a backpacker on this Island. We paid around 35 Fiji dollar per night for a 11 bed dorm (they made it a 12 dorm during our stay) unfortunatley there is only one bathroom with toilet and most of the time it was dirty. Extra bathroom facilities would be very welcome. Another...

Ive been to Fiji many times and this is easily the best island to explore! The dorm rooms are spacious and the A/C works wonders witht the warm evenings to make your night much more comfortable. The day trips run by the hostel are fantastic ways to spend your days and the activity guys, Pa, Tuko and Nu make the...

The staff at Maravu were the best, I travel alone and they always made sure that I was doing fine. I was sleeping in the dorm rooms which were very comfy (and don't look like the pictures on here anymore, nice single beds instead). The bungalows are not close to each other so you don't hear your neighbours, and the...

We had a good experience at Maravu Lodge. Our bure was very spacious and clean, we had our own bathroom. Housekeeping was done every day. They have a nice pool, perfect to refresh on those hot days in Fiji. Their bar/restaurant is very good as long as you choose more local/asian type dishes (eg pizza, burger etc were not so...

I booked the Treehouse through Air B&B; I'm not sure if it can be booked directly through the lodge. We were very pleased with our stay. It was clean, the air conditioner functioned, and we had amazing views. Were there ants in the bathroom? Yes, because neither the doors nor windows seal tightly. Was there a lizard running on the...

We are giving Maravu 2/5, it's not hideously terrible but it should be much, much better and isn't fair value for money. We arrived to our delux/honeymoon bure to find that five lights were blown. You can understand one, maybe two, being blown but when five are blown you know that nobody cares. Insect screens where patchy. The doors were...

Bula coast_dwellers, We are certainly confused by this review. We suspect that it was either written early last year (at least) or we are experiencing a tripadvisor time warp glitch. Reasons below:- - It is a long time since our deluxe bure rate was F$180. - No bures have 5 lights not working - No bures have two broken shower...

My stay at Maravu was nothing short of perfect. During my weeklong stay I made friends with some unbelievable people. The man in charge of an ocean sports shop by the beach, Lagi, took me on some unreal adventures including hunting down an octopus, kayaking, biking, and more. I also got to have some relaxing evenings with Mika, a staff...

“Ocean view rooms cost $150 US; for that I'd go more upscale elsewhere on Taveuni. For $65 US you get a nice-enough non-view room.”
