Aroha Taveuni Resort
Fiji, South Pacific
‘Garden Island’ is what the locals affectionately call Taveuni, the name speaks volumes for itself. The resort is located in a paradise of lush tropical forest and beautiful gardens all around.
The Island boasts several beautiful waterfalls that cascade down steep cliff faces into the ocean, an amazing sight.
Not far from Aroha Taveuni, there is a ‘natural’ water slide which is a must to visit to watch the local children stand and ‘surf’ down barefooted-it takes your breath away.
Diving and snorkeling from Taveuni is rated as some of the best in the world. Somosomo Strait is known as the ‘Soft Coral Capital’ of the world. The resort works with Taveuni Dive for all of their guests diving needs. They are very professional and a well-run company. If the tide is right, they pick guests up directly from the beach in front of the resort, or if tide too low, vehicle pick up for a short drive to their dive boats.
The beautiful 10 meter infinity pool and sun deck adjoining the main house are available for guests to relax and use.
The restaurant Kai Time is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
A short boat ride from Aroha Taveuni takes you to Koro Levu, an uninhabited small beautiful white sandy beach island which offers fantastic snorkeling. Take a picnic and spend the day lazing on the beach living your dream.
Further North, there are some beautiful long white sandy beaches. Take a walk along and find the beautiful shells on the shores, swim in the crystal clear waters, then head for the waterfall at Bouma on the way home to swim in the fresh water. Just fantastic way to end a great day out.
If you are a golfer, there is a beautiful nine hole, par three course on the island. It is very pretty as it hugs the coast heading south on Taveuni (green fees apply).
The resort can take you to a village very near for you to experience the cultural song and dance of Fiji and of course to sample ‘kava’ the local drink.
They can make bookings for diving, snorkeling, surfing, fishing, sightseeing, bird watching, coastal walks… or anything else you may choose to do while staying with the resort.
