Plantation Huts are nestled under swaying coconut palms on the lush rolling hills of Maravu Lodge.

This is a great choice for divers, nature-lovers, and adventure seekers, just a short walk from the colourful tropical reefs of the Somosomo Straights and the white sandy beaches of Taveuni's northern tip.

The space
Immerse yourself in the wonders of the Fiji Islands. This unique and opulent opportunity offers couples, families, and perhaps even battered backpackers a place to relax and rejuvenate amid a flourishing postcard-perfect paradise. You can see happiness from here.

**THE DESTINATION**
Taveuni, aptly named Fiji’s Garden Isle, is the country’s third largest island and is comprised of one very large, but a dormant, volcano. Steeped in nature’s sweetest secrets, with a Mataqali (family) of friendly Fijians charged as her caretakers, the island and surrounding waters are home to the Rainbow Reef, one of many world-famous dive sites; Lake Tagimoucia, the hiding place of the fabled Tagimoucia flower; Bouma National Heritage Park, Waitavala Waterslide and Lavena Point, which each boast several majestic mid-jungle waterfalls; as well as Ravilevu Nature Preserve and Taveuni Forest, two of the island’s most prolific bird sanctuaries.

Incredibly, the island offers even more. Eco-industry abounds here, keeping the island in its presently pristine condition. The land is laden with organically grown fruit, root and vegetable gardens. Fresh fish are sustainably farmed. Even the sweet-smelling coconut and frangipani massage oils are sourced from the islands own natural resources and created using practices passed down through generations of earth-aware Fijians.

With so much natural beauty, tradition and inherent culture, it’s easy to see why discerning vacationers and enchanted expats, along with their fellow Fijians, have been hiding away here all these years.

**THE ACCOMMODATION**
Maravu, the sprawling resort of which your private rental is a part, is nestled nicely between Welagi and Naselesele villages, right around the corner from the Matei Airport, and within walking distance to the beach, bus and local convenience shops.

Tropical paradise looms at every angle…

**THE DEAL**
A slight twist on the conventional is what really makes Maravu surprisingly special. This remote resort has been reimagined into a humble lodge, where local interaction and eco-living are the order of the day.

Structures on the property are provided with Fijian-made candles (and bright twinkling stars) to light their night once the sun has set.

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.

Although your private Plantation Hut is set on the lower slopes of the larger resort compound, you are welcome at any time to join 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 tropical 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.

Other things to note
Please note that I (Henry) no longer live in Taveuni, but I have a great Plantation team to take care of my guests :)

I love islands, beaches, seafood, volleyball, culture fusion, but most of all, i love travelling. I've travelled around the world and found my favourite spot...Fiji! My family's business is hospitality based and i manage a couple of tropical enterprises including impossibly beautiful properties in the luscious Taveuni area. Our style is simple, fun, eco, adventurous, and atmospheric that works in harmony with outer island villages. I'm excited to be involved with airbnb.com, to open the door for intrepid travellers, to an immaculate tropical island paradise.
