Maravu Plantation Resort, Taveuni

Taveuni is the third largest island in Fiji, a cigar-shaped volcanic island with forest-clad peaks running down the spine, the narrow coastal plain fringed by palm trees and golden beaches, turquiose waters and coral reefs flanking the shoreline. The world famous Somosomo Straits sweep along the north side of the island, its swift currents cutting Taveuni off from Vanua Levu. It is in the Somosomo Straits that can be found the world famous Rainbow Reef, hoe to such hallowed dive sites as the Great White Wall and Rainbow's End, which put Fiji on the diver's map.

Set against the backdrop of a 56-acre coconut plantation, Maravu Plantation Resort is a sumptuous hideaway where you can escape the hustle and bustle of daily life! Beautifully tended gardens that sweep down the hill are the location of just 20 well- appointed traditionally thatched bures (bungalows). Conveniently located on the north west tip of the island, Maravu provides easy access to the fabulous dive sites of the Somosomo Straits. The International Dateline runs just a few miles to the west. At Maravu you can be one of the last people on the planet to enjoy the end of the day!

There are a variety of bure available at Maravu. Four Planters bures in 2 units have private verandah and en suite bathroom and an interconnecting door that makes them ideal for families. Three Deluxe bures have outdoor shower and jacuzzi, surrounded by a stone wall. The five Honeymoon bures are separate units and each has a large open sundeck and covered verandah, an indoor and outdoor shower; similar to the deluze bures but larger and more spacious!

Built across a small valley, and accessed by an impressive wooden walkway amongst the treetops are the top two classes of room. The four Honeymoon Deluxe suites are much larger and have separate lounges and bedrooms, a private courtyard with outside shower, sundeck and jacuzzi. The wide verandahs have covered terraces and spacious open sundecks. The top of the range Ocean Spa Villas are larger even still and 3 have commanding views of the sea, the other garden & ocean.

All the bures at Maravu have air conditioning, but with cooling sea breezes wafting in from the Pacific Ocean air-conditioning is only required udring the summer months. Ceiling fans keep cool air circulating and louvred windows allow breezes to drift in.The walls of the bures are adorned with local Fijian artwork. There are neither phones nor TV in the rooms, but email, phone & fax facilities are available in the reception.

The open air restaurant is located under a long shaded verandah with views of the gardens and the pool. The resort has it's own organic vegetable garden producing a range of herbs and vegetables throughout the year, and as you wander through the landscaped you will notice banana, mango and papaya trees bursting with fruit! Meals are a delicious occasion, with local seafood as fresh as it can get, choice cuts of meat from New Zealand & Australia and a selection of fine wines from around the world. A weekly lovo feast is offered, where you can savour a traditional Fijian feast and try your hand at some local dancing, having perhaps first built up your courage by drinking an exotic cocktail or two.

A two minute walk from the reception area is the private beach and Swiss Fiji Divers, who offer daily dive trips to the Rainbow Reef. Dominic & Evie and their Fijian team have two purpose biult state of the art dive vessels that take 8 divers on the 30 minute run to the dive sites. A snack is provided between dives on an uninhabited beach, where you can go snorkelling or hunt for shells in the sand. 2 dives are offered in the morning and an optional 3rd in the afternoon, subject to numbers and availability. This gives you the chance to relax in after lunch or go and enjoy Taveuni island itself.

Non-divers are excellently catered for with guided tours, nature walks to such locations as Vidawa Forest with its excellent bird life, Bouma and Kulanawi waterfalls and the volcanic lake at Tagimaucia, horse riding, deep-sea fishing, sea kayaking or just relaxing in the beautiful surroundings of Maravu Resort.

After your stay at Maravu we defy you NOT to have a lump in your throat as you leave! This resort is one of the most romantic in the world, and nothing is too much trouble for the friendly and efficient staff. In our opinion this is the ONLY option for Taveuni!
