My girlfriend and I spent a week there in early September, 2022. My second visit and her first. You will experience a little piece of paradise at the Taveuni Island Resort on Fiji Island. The cottages are impeccable with spectacular views. The hospitality of the hosts is above and beyond expectations, from the moment you arrive, by making you feel at home to the wonderful presentations of each beautifully prepared meal. You will not be disappointed staying at this beautiful resort. And, you'll find yourself not wanting to leave.

We collected from the airport just a short drive up the road from the resort by a friendly face - this was also a free transfer. On arrival to this beautiful resort, we were welcomed by all the staff singing to us! We also experienced the same lovely personal touch on leaving the resort. The lovely Kiwi couple who own the resort were very welcoming and have lived in Fiji for most of their lives. They and their fabulous and friendly staff went out of their way to tend to our every need. The rooms are unique and facilities included both sizeable indoor and outdoor showers, air conditioning, veranda with loungers, fridge with milk and tea/coffee making facilities. The infinity pool was lovely, situated looking over the beach with amazing views. We really felt at home with the staff and other guests and even made friends with the owner’s friendly dogs and cats. Inclusive food was very good quality, plentiful and varied, considering the limited access imported fresh food. We’d return without hesitation… maybe after some saving up!

This place is paradise! The owners Do & Ric are absolute gems and the staff is impeccable. We were greeted so warm and kindly. The food was spectacular as well. They assisted in all our travel needs & are wonderful! Absolutely do the ‘honeymoon snorkel’ ~ it’s out of this world! Take a drive into town as well and support the locals. Go to the international dateline too from here. And the resort is only 3 minutes from the airport!

My family and I spent 4 nights here, and it's hard to summarize exactly how wonderful this place is. The place is clean, safe, comfortable and incredibly accommodating. The owners, Do and Ric were genuine and lovely. We enjoying chatting with them throughout our stay. They've done an amazing job turning the resort into a luxurious and welcoming place. They even picked us up and drove us to the airport! The views and location is incredible. The villa was wonderful and we had so much space! The staff was kind and helpful. The food was cooked using local fruits and foods and was delicious!!! We keep talking about the fish and chips! The manager, Storm was friendly and extremely helpful in helping us travel around the islands and in setting up all sorts of activities such as hiking and snorkeling. DO NOT MISS THE SNORKELING or diving right near the resort!!! It was something out of a movie - absolutely breathtaking. We were incredibly comfortable and relaxed and are looking forward to going back again some day!

My wife and I spent 3 nights here. It's hard to put into words what a wonderful experience we had. In over 50 years, the owner Ric and his wife Do built an amazing resort in all aspects. The location is exquisite. The room was tastefully done and very comfortable. The staff were kind and outgoing. The manager, Storm, helped set us up with activities all around the island and ensured they went smoothly. The owner, Ric, is a genuine and kind guy, he chatted with us and made sure we were enjoying our stay. Highly recommended for anyone looking for an exceedingly comfortable and luxurious stay on Taveuni.

Our stay there was nearly perfect and a great way to end our Fiji location. They were a little low on types of alcohol but we caught them at a bit of a shortage as they’re just getting back from many months of no tourists. Everyone there was so nice and we would definitely stay there again.

Incredibly friendly hosts, great dive teams, delicious food and comfortable bures. Taveuni Dive Resort has all of this and more. The resort staff greats you by name upon arrival and helps with the airport transfers (friendly driver too!). The diving was spectacular (I especially loved the outer reefs) and the dive guides/boat crew safe and knowledgeable. They provided thorough briefings and described highlights to watch for (sharks, unicorn fish, nudis, shrimp & gobies, Trevally, eels, etc. Healthy, diverse reefs thriving with life (amazing soft and hard corals in a riot of colors!) The food at Tavenui Dive Resort was exceptional- well beyond expectations and options were plentiful for vegetarian guests. The Lodge grounds were simply beautiful with colorful well-tended landscaping, birds (blue herons, mud pies, etc) and a few cherished dogs (owner’s pets). I loved the bures. Lovely inside and out with large comfy beds, beautiful wood work, stucco and flooring. Not a single mosquito made it through the screens or windows. Carl and Murien were accessible and helpful with any questions or needs (Carl fixed a small leak in my bcd within seconds, and was super flexible with dive/guide requests). In short, I had a wonderful 6-day and can’t wait to return. Highly Recommended.

Briiliant eight days Pick up Do and Ric at the airport with very friendly initial contact.There were four of us and things only got better. Welcome cocktail on arrival and a coin flip to decide which cottage for each. Beautiful gardens manicured to perfection. Rooms large with indoor and outdoor showers. Very comfortable --no TV a big plus. Meals included. Each day the 3 meals changed different courses of local produce. Raymond Madden looked after us like kings . All staff friendly and always happy. Most staff are long term and basically family. Not one problemover our stay . Do and Ric treated us as family not guests. This does not happen in the real world. A brilliant eight days. sorry they are now closed due to Corona virus epidemic. Thank you Ric And Do --all the best for the future.

We have stayed at Taveuni Island resort 5 or 6 times now and will continue to come back for a week every year. It’s my ‘bit of luxury’ in Fiji. I love the views, the food, the massage and the all the staff. The rooms are wonderful and luxurious with very welcome air conditioning on the hot nights, and cleaning staff are very conscientious and friendly. It must say something that we see the same smiling faces year after year where a lot of resorts seem to have new staff all the time. Management are very accommodating to any requests we have made and are always available if you need them. Anything can be arranged, diving, waterfall walks, trips to town, snorkelling, kayaking and more. Lastly, we are very lucky that we can come to Fiji/ Taveuni twice a year and we usually stay with friends or rent a house but I will ALWAYS come to TIR for my week of being spoiled. I have stayed at a lot of places in Fiji and this is the only resort that we have, and will continue to return to.

Been going to TIR annually for over 15 years. The staff is always good-natured and caring. I frequently walk the spacious grounds, as it is landscaped to beautiful tropical perfection, and quiet to boot. I have never had a meal that did not delight. Much of the food is locally grown or raised, I once even toured the nearby farmer suppliers. With massages available, a pool, classy spacious suites, and a dining room facing the gorgeous Western horizon (for Fijian sunsets), TIR is always a pleasure.
