Amid the Taveuni jungle, peering out across the Somosomo Straight, sits the fabled five-star resort Maravu — a once exclusive escape now turned humble lodge.

Accommodation is laid out like a Fijian Village and every room has high ceilings, hardwood floors and traditional decor. The little restaurant/cafe is open daily. The open plan dining area allows stunning views at meal time. Make the most of the massive indoor/outdoor deck area for dining or relaxing

Imagine, if you can, a paradise so perfect that man and nature still exist in perfect harmony with one another. Turquoise water twinkles in the blazing sunlight. Lush green landscapes are laden with flowers, fruits and bright red chili peppers. It is silent—save for the slow creak of the ancient coconut palms lazily blowing in the breeze, the gentle waves rhythmically throwing themselves upon the white sandy shore, the quiet cries of the country’s most exotic species.

And it doesn’t end there! Friendly Fijians also inhabit this island. Solemn keepers of both land and culture, they wander this wilderness carrying with them the passed-down practices, legends and traditions of their ancestors. Looking after the land and the people which look after them.

So, join us for some kava with the village’s rising chiefs, try your hand at spearfishing with the local champs or learn to weave, dive, surf, and snorkel.
