Maravu Taveuni Lodge Hostel

Naselesele, Matei, Taveuni Island, Fiji

Maravu Taveuni is an off-the-beaten-track lodge on Fiji's northern island of Taveuni. Lonely Planet Fiji 2012 recommends our experience as 'Backpackers bliss'. Beware- it is very beautiful here. The lagoon out front is incredibly blue, the land glows with lush colours of pristine jungles, traditional Fijian farms and vibrant flower beds. It is photographers dream come true. We are surrounded by amazing waterfalls, incredible hiking, world-class diving and remote surf breaks!

About Maravu Taveuni Lodge

Discover a nature/culture/adventure hostel experience. Explore Taveuni from a perfect location. Enjoy fast free Wifi throught the entire property, and fun free activities daily. Maravu Taveuni is unique lodge for budget travellers. We offer a location close to the Taveuni Airport, a short walk from the island's best beaches, a short boat trip to the famous reefs, and set in the midst of a coconut plantation!

Accommodation is laid out like a Fijian Village and every room has high ceilings, hardwood floors and traditional decor. Rates include free WiFi in the main areas and loads of free activities. The little local style restaurant/cafe and a cool bar 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.

The food is most often cooked with all local fruits and vege and seafood. Our cooks have a unique style and flavour that could found in some of Fiji's 5 star resorts, but at backpacker prices. Guests are often welcome to learn and/or be involved with the meal preparation and local cooking styles. We highly recommend a Fiji Fusion Meal Plan for those seeking a unique culinary experience.

And adventure is abound with the famous reefs of the Taveuni on our doorstep, a beautiful private beach for a snorkel safari, the great waterfalls a short drive away, the lush tropical wonderland for walking all around, and some world class surf breaks hidden on the adjacent isle....

But what makes our place uniquely special is the wonderful, happy, friendly local team and the island way of life. Staff operate serenely, on Fiji time, and can often be found conversing quietly with guests or giving weaving, cooking and other village-life lessons. Happily they share their culture with any eager ears they happen to come across. You are welcome at any time to join the other guests in resort activities or make use of the restaurant, bar, pool or spa. Alternatively, you may choose to relax in the reclusiveness of your plantation sanctuary and allow our smiling staff to provide you with in-room food, beverage and massage services.

Our concierge booking desk is also at your disposal, and our local team is ready at all times to share their secret island knowledge to help you plan-out, make reservations and schedule transportation for your idyllic day.
