    Tuvununu is dead, and you are redirected to Maravu Plantation. This is an old 4 stars resort, which have been abandoned for 4 years, without maintenance. So now, staying at Maravu is a wonderfull environement, large natural park, large bures, at affordable price. If you go to Bouma park, you can see the old Tuvununu place, and you are happy to stay at Maravu ! A good point is that it is very close to the airport.

    It is old, been abandoned for 4 years, so many things don't work anymore. The best example is hot water : there is none anymore... The food is generally terrible, except breakfast, and many people go to eat at a restaurant near by along the ocean. The staff is friendly, but average. Anynway, for that price in a such place, the stay is quiet good.

    The garden is beautifull, and the bungalow very nice!

    Too far from the beach and diving center, to far to carry diving equipment, photo video equipment, ecc. NO HOT WATER in the bungalow this is terrible when weather is bad!!!

    The location, grounds are beautiful and well kept, friendly staff, clean burre, swimming pool, free wifi,

    the lack of training of staff. We were often given a run around when it came to activities. All activities were an extra charge and the 'guides' were not trained well enough to justify the price. They were not able to give us information on other activities in the area, everyone seemed to have a different answer. The taxis to and from activities were expensive. We were made to wait over and hour for staff on a couple occasions, we were taken into really rough sea which could have been avoided. The staff were really friendly but with lack of management and training they can only do so much.

    Tuvununu Dive Lodge doesn't really exist anymore but the guys from there have taken over an old resort called Maravu that closed down 5 years ago. The resort must have been something in its day. The location is brilliant. The cottages are all in lovely gardens with lots having ocean views/glimpses. I was in Bure 7 and was very impressed. Beautiful old Pacific Green furniture, clean sheets (although if you lift the sheets you might get a shock at the look of the mattresses) and firm beds.(No Bed Bugs) All the windows have insect screens and mozzie coils are included in the room There is no electricity in any of the cottages or Wi Fi (you have to do your charging up at the main building where there is a WiFi signal as well) there is just a light in the Garden Cottages although the Sea View cottages don't even have that. I stayed a night in a Sea View cottage (No 15) Gorgeous decor and huge balcony with hammock overlooking the ocean. You need lots of candles though with no lights. I haggled a better price for the Sea View because of the no-light situation which I was happy to put up with for a night to experience a tiny piece of old 5 star luxury from days past. It's a bit of a trek from the main lodge to the Sea View cottages as well over some dodgy wooden bridges so make sure you have a torch. I loved my time at Manavu. The Staff are awesome and all Fijians with lots of laughter and with nothing too much trouble. Sing-a-longs and Kava every night. A fire show that was pretty impressive by the local lads. Dinner was really great with massive portions. f$15-20. The included breakfast is a bit lean but Eggs on toast for f$5 bucks! (Cant go wrong) Nice pool which is kept super clean by George (bless him!) Can't wait to go back! Miss it already after two days away!

    No electricity or WiFi in the rooms. (But it does force you to meet people up at the main building which is a bonus)

    I really like the staffs for the friendliness, helpful and not pushy at all. Their sincerity brighten the ambience in the hotel that bring guests together, at least during our stay. Not forget, Charlie, the chef and other kitchen's staffs, thumb up for the food. In overall, Tuvununu Maruvu made our stay memorable.

    A little bit hiccup during our stay was the failure of main power supply in that area that cause the hotel to provide minimal power supply on generator, what the hotel could have done better is to inform us in advance.

    Tuvununu Dive Lodge does not exist. They have changed name and premises, and are now located in a rundown resort that was abandoned for a number of years. I was in contact by e-mail with the staff several times before arriving and they never mentioned anything concerning this "minor" change. We made the reservation in good faith for Tuvununu Dive Lodge only to arrive to a place looking completely different to what I was made believe in the photos. On arrival we were asking why we are not at Tuvununu Dive Lodge, and they just said that this is what it is and take it or leave it. Since the next door hotel costed $750/night we had no option but to stay here. The mosquito nets on our windows were slashed and despite several requests from our side and equal many promises from their side to fix this - nothing was done. Our room was infected with hundreds of cockroaches and it smelled as if some animal had died underneath the house. When I complained about this I was only met with accusations of lying so I in the end I ended up taking photos of the insects I managed to kill. Since the premises hosts no restaurant or bar you have think of alternative options for feeding your self - if you are thinking of cooking yourself in their kitchen, be prepared for the worst - this place is dirty, disgusting and unhygienic. The kayaks are full of holes so that water leaks in and the paddles are broke, so incase you want to do this activity you will end up rending the equipment for a mere $60/day. We payed in advance for a private transport to the ferry but they completely forgot about that so we ended up being squeezed in to a minivan with a group of other people. Due to their "amnesia" we missed our ferry and had to settle for a secondary slower option, that could have triggered a domino effect of missing several flights and hotel booking that we already payed in advance, all and all costing us thousands of dollars.

    I came to Taveuni the first time with my wife my dad and my brother. We loved the location and hospitality of the great tuvununu love of Fiji Islands in Taveuni. Our visit was short but sweet. Did meet a lot of people of Taveuni and the staff was excellent, the food was over whelming it was so nice you all gave us a wonderful time and the tapa we received from our brother. Yes we are a family even though we never met. We will come and include our friends and families around the world. Its the little things that count, the smile the pure Fiji Bula a heart felt welcome. Vinaka Vaka Levu Tuvununu, We Love you the Island of Taveuni Fiji Islands and never forgetting the Brothers and sisiters who gave us a wonderful stay. God Bless Fiji. Thank you once again.
