I stayed a week at Maravu and wish I stayed longer! The staff is super helpful (even though some things happen on Fiji time ;) and the food is yummy. I stayed in a dorm, the bathroom was clean and the room spacious. They offer a lot of activities to the waterfalls, timeline, natural waterslide and snorkeling. Our guide Raffa...

Well worth the visit. Staff are fantastic. Food is good and inexpensive. Facilities need some loving care but it doesn't attract from the experience. I had a great time and would return. I would rely on activities running every day as they have a minimum of 5.

I recently had the privilege of staying at Maravu Lodge for 11 nights while I explored the beauty of Taveuni Fiji, and had a awesome experience! From Shabe and Jackson serving me my meals and drinks throughout my visit to the guys that performed the Kava ceremony nightly and guiding us on the tours, everyone was so friendly and accommodating!...

I thoroughly enjoyed my time her. I came for two nights and stayed two weeks. The dorm is lovely although the shower is a little sketchy as the door didn't lock but it was fine because everyone knew everyone and became a big family. We did some great activities locally with so much to do on your door step. One...

The Maravu Taveuni Lodge is a beautiful place to stay! The staff is so friendly and the food so delicious. You can do a lot of unbelievable activities. Escpecially swimming by the waterfalls is unforgettable. The kava-session with music from Simon and Soni was always the perfect end of a beautiful day. I spent 4 days there but I could...

The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good. We loved the view from our bure. The bure was in need of updating (new patio furniture, a couple of chairs inside, and the outside bath cleaned up) but it was clean and quiet. Many tours were available and the ones we took we enjoyed. An uphill walk back from...

Taveuni is a gorgeous spot and offered everything we wanted to do in Fiji. In terms of Maravu it needs a lot of work, it has so much potential but so little maintenance is being done. We were their on the package for 5 nights and it really wasn't worth it and we could have done all the amazing activities...

Great spot for what it is. Pros: -Staff could not have been friendlier. We were greeted by name every morning by all the staff we saw. They were open to answering questions, arranging transport to activities, or just chatting. They will honestly do everything they can to make your stay excellent, and were a highlight of the trip for us....

Felt so welcome it was like making a new family. The Bure's are clean and almost all of them have ocean views. We spent 16 days here (wedding included). Almost all the backpackers extended their stays as Taveuni ended up having a lot more to offer than any other island in Fiji. We went to the falls, the coastal hike...

“Ocean view rooms cost $150 US; for that I'd go more upscale elsewhere on Taveuni. For $65 US you get a nice-enough non-view room.”

“You will walk in the open to your bure, so take an umbrella with you in case it rains - rain is usually a pleasant relief from the heat.”
