Aroha Taveuni
Reviewed October 13, 2012

All the reviews that you read here on Trip Advisor, will not do Aroha justice! Book your holiday today and come and experience it for yourself - you won't be disappointed.
I am sitting on my bed listening to the beautiful music of Aroha's personal musicians. We had a perfect "Lovo" Fijian Feast night tonight, with the wonderful people from Aroha. The band of 5 started playing at 6pm and it is now 10pm and their wonderful voices are as strong as when they started playing at the start of our evening feast.
Ngaire and Dennis are truly outstanding hosts, but behind these wonderful people are their staff, their Fijian family, whom are acknowledged, loved and respected for what they bring to this wonderful Fijian experience.
Cookie for her wonderful food - a true professional, Lo - looks after the household, keeps our Bures clean, she makes it look so easy, James for his driving, and commentary and wow - can this man sing!
This team of people have got looking after their guests down to a fine art.
My friend and I were booked to come to Aroha back in April - the same day as it flooded in Nandi. We did not take out insurance, and thought our trip to Aroha, Taveuni was lost. Ngarie wrote back immediately and said that when we were ready, our accommodation would be here for us. This is the type of generous hosts we have been privileged to stumble upon.
When you are next thinking of a holiday in Fiji, experience the true Fiji, stay at Aroha. Enjoy perfect accommodation, at fantastic rates. Enjoy beautiful restaurant quality food, at a fraction of the cost. Enjoy a beer or a wine, at their prices, you can enjoy several! Enjoy the tours offered, insightful and fun! Enjoy the views - open your doors in the morning to the gentle sea, listen to the Fijian children laughing as they walk by - when they see you, you can always expect a big smile and BULA!
We leave here on Monday, after 9 days of bliss. Vinaka to Ngaire, Dennis and your truly wonderful extended Fijian family. We will carry the experience with us always!

Room Tip: Every room is perfectly nestled amongst manicured tropical gardens with a view to the beach!

My son and I are not the most social people being very shy/quiet. However Ngaire and Dennis made us feel very comfortable and at home. Extremely helpful with everything from organising tours to exchanging currency for us. Our bure was exceptionally clean and kept as such throughout our entire stay. Amenities were always topped up and smelled beautiful. The outdoor shower is.....WOW! There were also mosquito coils made available (a life saver for me!). Continental breakfast was really yummy with a variety of cereals and fresh fruit available every day. Thank you so much for the extra papaya (after finding out I loved the fruit) and for the coconut drink on lovo night! Cookie is a superb cook and it is truly amazing what she does with the island's fresh produce. I would LOVE to take cooking lessons from Cookie.....her sublime creations are not to be missed! A massage by Leita is a must as she is a miracle worker with her hands.....talk about being in heaven! The lovo night Ngaire and Dennis organised was momentus and the feast was eye boggling awesome!

I highly recommend Aroha for it's location on the beach and it's proximity to the local shops, church and school. The property is stunning with an immaculate pool and sun lounges positioned overlooking the beach. Ngaire and Dennis's love for the island and it's people is shown in all they say and do at Aroha.

Thank you so much for an unforgettable holiday and I look forward to seeing everyone next year!

Room Tip: All the bures are fantastic, spacious and with a well equipped kitchen.

Like everyone else we had a great time. Just a shame that Dennis was not there. I hope you're fully recovered now. Everything was perfect with Ngaire and co. there when needed. Accomodation was superb and the shower was something amazing - where else can you get that view!!!
Must not forget Cookie's food. Sublime. You have to eat in at least once or regret it for the rest of your life.
If going to Fiji just book here. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: There all superb. Just go for it.

We spend there 14 days in june and it was hard to leave. The bungalows are convinient and clean. You have a kitchen with fridge for your daily needs. The rooms are situated in a nice garden. The beach is in front of the terrace, just some steps away. Dennis and Ngaire made us feel at home since the arrival. Don' t miss the food of Cookie, we still remember it. If you want to do any trips, you only have to ask and it will be arranged. Thanks to the Kiwis and the Aroha-team for this experience.

My husband, our adult son and myself spend 4 wonderful days at Aroha and in the company of Ngaire & Dennis. They are exemplary hosts. We inadvertently tested them, due to our inability to make a choice on a boating trip until the very last moment, and they accommodated us with our wishes and with much grace. For this we thank them most sincerely.
Right from the outset when I started my e-mail communications with Ngaire she was so very kind and helpful in all aspects.
Aroha itself is as pretty as a picture. Everything is spotless, cared for with much love and the staff are indeed fantastic as well. It was an absolute delight and joy to have dinner served to us on our verandah each night. So much more intimate and nicer than dining in a restaurant situation. This is a truly unique experience.
Our time was indeed very memorable: could not fault a thing. We commend Ngaire & Dennis for their excellent work and shall indeed return with our families.

With rainbows every other day and sunsets hung so low you felt you could be swept away across the horizon too, the garden island of Fiji, Taveuni, is beautiful. We found our stay at Aroha Taveuni, comfortable, truly relaxing and the perfect place to be to take in the serenity of the place. We made good friends with the locals and were able to take in the sights at our own pace which was refreshing and ensured a holiday that was expected and exceptional at the same time. Dennis and Ngaire have thought of everything in comfort to the last detail, such as, mosquito repellants for the night. The accommodation has everything from open showers to spacious bedrooms and a self contained kitchenette. Fresh fruits and cereal for breakfast every day. Rooms are made daily. Ample of linen and separate towels for the room, indoor pool and for the beach. There is laundrette free to use. to make our stay coin comfort and were the perfect hosts. Kuki can turn up some sumptuous dinners with Dennis and Ngaire the perfect hosts - meals are reasonably priced. Should one want to opt for cheaper meals than highly recommend Reena’s place some 800m away. One can let Reena know in the day what time and whatever you like to eat and the meal will ready and waiting. Their 4WD and James can be booked for all your trips – highly recommended. James is very safe driver and the perfect guide and knows the island inside out. Ask for Sepo and his 4 WD taxi to go to Des Voux Peak – a must do, the views are magnificent. Other touristy things that one must do is the Lavena coastal walk (must do the boat trip at least one way to the pool and then to the double water fall) , tavoro waterfalls, natural waterslide (you slide downstream on bare rocks – a thrilling experience), blow hole (have to time this trip perfectly). On Sunday morning can attend the Church service in the morning - one at 7 am is in English and the 9 am in Fijian. Our daughter completed the four day scuba diving open water course and went diving in the rainbow reef – Taveuni Dive are the ones to go with. Other things one can do, sun bathe, swim in virtually your own private pool, read a book, watch the skyline and simply relax. We spent the most relaxing 10 nights in Aroha Taveuni and were just beginning to get used to a life without internet (although there is free internet available in your room), mobile phones and television when sadly we had to leave.
