Taveuni Island Resort & Spa

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 April 2012

We had read about TIR in a Brisbane newspaper travel review and decided it would be a perfect place to take our 3 kids aged 20, 18 and 16. We were NOT disappointed! We spent the first week in the 2 bedroom family bure with our own cook Olly who made us positively fat with her delicious cooking. Our every wish was taken care of. We moved to 2 oceanfront bures for our 2nd week and met an American family staying at the resort with kids the same age. Boy did we have fun!!!
The resort's owners Do and Rick were so warm and friendly and together with their son Matt organised so many fabulous things to do on the island so the kids were never bored for a minute. Sai took us under his wing and organised island picnics and several snorkelling adventures as well as hosting the evening music and kava circle. The coastal walk is a must with swimming in the waterholes and waterfall slides. We were very sad to leave and tears were shed when the staff gathered for their farewell song. Thank you Do, Rick, Matt and all the staff for sharing your slice of paradise with us. We will always remember you.

Room Tip: Rooms on the oceanfront have magnificent views and sunsets.

Great four nights here in mid-April. Stayed in an Oceanfront bure and it was really comfortable with a view to die for. My friend saw dolphins from her villa on her first morning (I was fast asleep). The staff were fantastic, relaxed and took great care of us.
We took the Lavena Coastal Walk option and I'd recommend to anyone doing it the way we did - walk in, swim in waterfall, Lunch, then boat down the coast to see more waterfalls, swim some more and back to the village for the drive home. Amazing day. Big mention to Vetta for jumping off the waterfall ;) Snorkelling was great and my panic at the shark sighting was real...
This is a really comfy resort that offers a great escape and opportunity to wind down, would come back for sure with a special someone or another group of friends.

Stayed: April 2012

I spent a week during January and enjoyed every minute of it. Warm helpful staff with accommodating owners on site made for a wonderful experience. The food was world class good and I am trying to figure out how to recreate my villa at home, it was that comfortable. Do and her family have obviously worked very hard to make this a welcoming, safe and luxurious experience. I would have enjoyed it much more were I sharing it with someone else. A great couples retreat. I will go back just for the expert diving and optional recreational activities. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I cant imagine they have a bad room. Mine was wonderful

We stayed at the resort in March. This was our first trip to Fiji and had a great time. Tavenui Island Resort is a wonderful all inclusive resort. Meals were excellent. Fruits and vegetables were locally grown and there was lots of variety. Staff was very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate every need. Excursions were custom designed to whatever we desired. And the local guides provided great insight to the land, cultures and history of Fiji. I highly recommend this for a quiet getaway.

We spent a week at TIR and although it rained for half of the week we thoroughly enjoyed the time we stayed there. We were personally welcomed by the lovely owner Do and serenaded by some of the staff with a 'bula' song. We stayed in a Oceanfront Bure which had a fantastic view of the ocean and was very private. We have stayed at a lot of 5 star resorts around the world and TIR was equal to any of them. The bure was beautifully appointed and well designed to take advantage of the view. The grounds are magnificant and well maintained and the bures well spaced. The staff were very friendly and went over and above their duty to assist us with our needs and wants. Do was a wonderful hostess who was always available for a chat and to assist in any way she could. The meals were enjoyable, healthy and fulfilling. The resort is located in a beautiful spot above a couple of lovely small beaches with some great snorkling 10 minutes away by boat. If you are visiting Taveuni Island then this is the spot to stay.

Room Tip: Select a Oceanfront Bure if you can because the views are fantastic.
