Maravu Taveuni is an off-the-beaten-track paradise nestled against the lagoon on Fiji's luscious island of Taveuni. Beware - it is very beautiful here. This is an excellent choice for budget travellers, nature lovers and scuba divers.
Maravu Taveuni looks out over a vast blue lagoon, the land glows with lush colours of pristine jungles, traditional Fijian farms and vibrant flower beds. It's photographer's dream come true. We're surrounded by amazing waterfalls, incredible hiking, world-class diving and remote surf breaks. Maravu is all about eco-tourism adventures, village styles, and having lots of fun.

Enjoy Taveuni and it's beautiful surrounding islands with a location close to the Taveuni Airport and just outside of the Matei Village. Experinence the famous Bouma Waterfalls and East Taveuni's eco-attractions. Qamea Island has some of Fiji's loveliest white sand beaches and our sister hostel, Maqai Beach, is always available for day trips or combo stays. Transfers between our two spots go everyday.

The famous reefs of the Taveuni area make it a diver's paradise. Explore the Great White Wall, the Rainbow Reef and other worldclass sites. Dive trips and courses are available every day!

The wonderful, happy, friendly local staff offer a uniquely Fijian experience.The team really love to share their local area and their lifestyle with all the guests. The scene is set for interaction with traditional island life and culture and adventure. Make friends with the staff and you may experience Fiji beyond the tourism facade - the real story!

The food is most often cooked with all local fruits, veg and seafood. Our cooks have a unique style and flavour that could be 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 also have a stunning little white sandy private island in the dolphin lagoon with exclusive access to the Maravu guests. Simply, naturally, beautifully Fiji style!
