Coconut Grove Beachfront Cottages

Hidden away on the island of Taveuni is a small, friendly resort called Coconut Grove Beachfront Cottages, and is the proud winner of the TripAdvisor annual Traveler's Choice Awards for the last decade! This intimate group of only 3 bures is situated directly on the beach and immersed in a lush environment of mango trees, coconut palms and verdant island vegetation. To honor the solitude and beauty of Taveuni (known as Fiji's Garden Island) and the simplicity of the island way of life, there is no disco or television. What you will find is an extraordinary staff devoted to this island, its people, its traditions, and their guests. Additionally there are incredible nature walks, convenient swimming and snorkeling, sunrises that will take your breath away, and the clearest night skies you have ever seen - ever.

The resort's restaurant is a long time favorite of both locals and tourists, and ocean views are prominent at meal time, too. Fresh fish and seafood, organically grown vegetables and homemade pastas are prevalent, as are curries and Fijian food. They also import some of the finest beef New Zealand has to offer. Resort guests can have their dinner served in the restaurant, on their private verandah, or down on the beach by candlelight. Many nights the local guys come to play their ukuleles and sing island tunes. Coconut Grove really makes an effort to show you as much of the Fijian culture as possible while you are their guest. There is also a village night when the entire village performs a meke (a traditional musical story/dance) on the beach at the resort, followed by lovo (food cooked in an earth oven over volcanic rocks).

The Banana Bure is only 10 steps from the beach, and offers ocean views from 3 sides. It has a king bed and a private outdoor shower. The Mango Bure is the newest and is still only 30 steps from the beach and since it is higher on the hillside it has a spectacular view. It also sports a king bed and private outdoor shower. Trade winds rustle through the papaya trees that give the Papaya bure it's name, and also keep the bure cool and airy. It is a bit smaller, but has a queen size bed, ceiling fan and a small fridge for cold drinks. The louvered windows provide beautiful views of the ocean and sunrise right from your bed! Heliconias and hibiscus are everywhere, and a few steps down is the outdoor lava rock shower (there is also a hot water shower inside the bure).

Taveuni diving

Taveuni is famous for it's wonderful natural environment. Among the many outdoor activities available are a nature hike to Bouma Waterfalls (if you are feeling adventurous you can trek all the way to the upper falls), the Lavena Coastal Walk, bird watching (watch for the kula parrot, silktail, ferntail, and orange dove), great snorkeling right off the resort's beach, village trips, kayaking, Horseback Riding, or even a trek to a 4000' peak to see the rare and beautiful Tagimoucia flower. Of course, that's not all. You can also do some dolphin watching right from your verandah, have a professional massage in your bure, and much more. Diving can be arranged through several dive shops nearby. Visit Coconut Grove and see why people say that Taveuni is one of the most magical places on earth.
