Suva, Fiji91 contributions13 helpful votes
A visit to Fiji's second island is a must if you plan to visit Fiji. Savusavu is a laid back town on Savusavu Bay, which hosts the popular marina for "yachties" from around the world. To make your visit to Savusavu complete, we recommend Tavola Villas, which is run by Monica and her Fijian team, and not forgetting Jaco and Luna the dogs and Prahna the cat. The house is architecturally designed using local timbers and the location gets the best out of the cooling trade winds. The property also has an infinity pool, an outdoor dining area and hammocks to chill in and read. We have lived in Fiji for some time and we can honestly say the food on offer only uses the freshest local ingredients. The food is freshly prepared with care and provides a perfect balance. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel part of the family and within a few minutes we felt we belonged. Monica and the team will do whatever they can to meet their guests requirements and can provide transport if asked, This is a geat base for diving a JMC resort or for travelling further afield. We were introduced to OceanVentues Fiji on the largest bay in the South Pacific, at Natewa Bay, which is about 40 minutes drive. Sara and Matthew offered a fantastic day and directed us to some of the best snorkelling in Fiji in the most unspoilt area you can ever imagine. Please see our review of this trip. Thank you to Monica and the team for making or anniversary trip so special.

As Covid19 shut down the world, I found myself in Fiji. For 5 weeks I stayed at Tavola Villa. The villa has an amazing view overlooking Savusavu Bay. The property is on Vanua Levu, the second largest island in Fiji. The villa is incredible, and all the rooms are inviting and facing the sunset.  I stayed in one of the guest bungalows for 3 weeks. It’s cozy and comfortable with one side being a bedroom and the other side being a private lounge. I loved waking up as the morning light brightened. And sometimes you wake up and the first thing you see is a rainbow, which is magical.  I stayed in the master suite for 2 weeks. It’s on the main level, so the verandah is just out your door, and the infinity pool is steps away. I enjoyed swimming in the pool in the late afternoon or early evening, lounging in a hammock and spending many late evenings on the trampoline marvelling at the stars. While at Tavola, I became a certified diver with Cousteau Resort, which is just down the road. Once certified, I went to several dive sites, all spectacular. I saw turtles, sharks, mantas, groupers, soft corals, clown fish, eels, cabbage coral and barracudas. And I even ventured into caves, with my GoPro in one hand and my flashlight in the other. The diving in Vanua Levu is not to be missed!  In addition to diving, I regularly went snorkeling and kayaking. It’s a quick walk through the jungle canopy to get to the beach at the edge of the property. I really enjoyed taking a kayak out, tethering it to a buoy and then snorkeling from that spot. On my last swim, I invited Jaco and Luna, the villa dogs to join me. I so enjoyed their company and certainly wish I could take them home! Monica is an amazing host and very bright. She takes time to speak with the guests and is helpful in 1001 different ways. I am so happy that I could stay at Tavola, especially in this unique time of a global pandemic. I traveled throughout Fiji, and Tavola is prettier than Fiji itself. It’s an incredibly special private villa nestled in the heart of an abundant Pacific Island paradise. Tavola feels like home, and it’s truly hard to leave.

I had the greatest pleasure (and honor) to stay with Monica and her dear family for a full 10 days and emerged quite literally a new version of myself, more focused on the present moment and all its glory. The property is literally perfect - aesthetically pleasing from every vantage point, brilliantly architected and expertly layered with the details that make a house a home. In lieu of writing a novel about my stay (which I may well do!, here are the highlights and what's not to be missed: -- Enjoy a massage on the back deck of your bure before slipping into the infinity pool at sunset -- Savor each morsel of the meals. Monica's a brilliant chef who expertly marries local ingredients and spices to make meals that leave you feeling vibrant. -- Spend time in every hammock. Bring extra books. -- Meditate on your back porch. -- See the sunset or sunrise from the top of the property - it's stunning -- Enjoy the ocean view from your shower -- Get out and explore! Go on a jungle trek, see a waterfall, visit the secret castaway beach, and check out the town which couldn't be a more well-preserved enclave of local charm. Monica and team are an encyclopedia of where to explore. -- Pay attention to the music that surrounds you. Even this detail is expertly crafted.

The perfect place to get away from it all. For my not nearly long enough stay, I was treated like family by the owner and staff, and was able to forget about everything and relax. There were also plenty of activities to fill the time we get like moving. The snorkeling and fishing were fantastic. From the gorgeous views to the delicious fresh food, it was bliss. I can’t recommend it enough. If you do go, make sure to take advantage of the delicious passion fruit and golden tea.

Tavola was the perfect place to holiday with our four teenage boys. Monica and her team made our stay so special. It was such a treat to stay in such beautiful surroundings - incredible views across the water and tranquil gardens. The views were breath taking from the master bedroom and it was so nice to wake each morning looking across the ocean. The infinity pool was well used by the whole family but particularly the boys who spent many hours swimming and just hanging out with each other. I can not talk enough about Monica and her wonderful team. They were all so helpful, warm and friendly. Monica was a great source of knowledge as to what activities and sights we could see and experience. There were so many things that you could do at Tavola, you were spoiled for choice - kayaking, snorkeling, early morning fishing, or just relaxing. Monica prepared our wonderful meals which was such a treat. We were so thankful that we could spend our family holiday at Tavola with Monica and her team. It was the right blend of fun and relaxation in a very luxurious and incredible setting. We hope to return again some day.
