Reviewed 4 November 2012

Go ahead, have high expectations. They will be met. Simple as that. The Kiwis running the place are wonderful people. Their bures are superb. To go on is to be repetitive as others have stated it all already.

Is there a down side? Hmmm difficult to come up with one. Have one but it is minor. Beach is not grand but Fiji Islands with the exception of the Yasawa Islands do not have great beaches. Still, it is a nice enough beach with wonderful grounds and surroundings.

I cannot think of another place you would want to stay when visiting this island. Go!

Another good example of Tripadvisor excellent recommendation. This small hotel is a hidden gem and both the quality of the infrastructure and the welcome of Ngaire and Dennis are top. Both will do everything to make your stay pleasant without being intrusive and nowhere since a long time did we feel that the moto "come as a guest, leave as a friend" was more appropriate. The bures are beautiful, the infinity pool superb, the beach 5 meters away and the food just excellent... Furthermore Aroha can arrange a wide range of activities through knowledgeable and very nice partners. Taveuni is incredibly relaxed and if there was a place we would like to reurn... It would definitely be there and we would stay at Aroha again, no doubt about it.

Room Tip: Five rooms only and all facing the sea... So difficult to be wrong!

Words cannot describe how beautiful the b&b grounds and the staff were. It's a million dollar view at a great price. It's like a time share, with great amenities and having the beach at your fingertip.

We loved the outdoor shower, looking by the mountains. My husband would have stayed in the shower for hours and enjoying the fresh air and mountain scenery - very refreshing. The wood architecture is outta this world gorgeous. I have a new fond respect and appreciation for having no tv while being on vacation...yes there is no TV, respecting the nature, from hearing the birds, breathing in the fresh air, looking at the mountain, loving the sunset by the beach and loving the peacefulness. There is internet access for free.

We want to thank Jim for driving us around to our excursion and teaching us he history of Taveuni. He's very knowledgeable, funny and down to earth to have you drive around the island. Cookie, we love your cooking so much that to this day I cannot forget some of the dishes you cooked because we cannot get them here in the USA. If you see Cookie, she's a sweet and adorable human being that can light up your heart, by just looking at her. Plus she her cooking is something you will take with you forever.

If I can make it back to Fiji, this will be the only island and b&b to only come back to. Everything was perfect. The stores were 5-10 minute walk, the catholic church was 15 mins away. The surrounding is safe and well maintained. Do not pass this place up.

All the reviews that you read here on Trip Advisor, will not do Aroha justice! Book your holiday today and come and experience it for yourself - you won't be disappointed.
I am sitting on my bed listening to the beautiful music of Aroha's personal musicians. We had a perfect "Lovo" Fijian Feast night tonight, with the wonderful people from Aroha. The band of 5 started playing at 6pm and it is now 10pm and their wonderful voices are as strong as when they started playing at the start of our evening feast.
Ngaire and Dennis are truly outstanding hosts, but behind these wonderful people are their staff, their Fijian family, whom are acknowledged, loved and respected for what they bring to this wonderful Fijian experience.
Cookie for her wonderful food - a true professional, Lo - looks after the household, keeps our Bures clean, she makes it look so easy, James for his driving, and commentary and wow - can this man sing!
This team of people have got looking after their guests down to a fine art.
My friend and I were booked to come to Aroha back in April - the same day as it flooded in Nandi. We did not take out insurance, and thought our trip to Aroha, Taveuni was lost. Ngarie wrote back immediately and said that when we were ready, our accommodation would be here for us. This is the type of generous hosts we have been privileged to stumble upon.
When you are next thinking of a holiday in Fiji, experience the true Fiji, stay at Aroha. Enjoy perfect accommodation, at fantastic rates. Enjoy beautiful restaurant quality food, at a fraction of the cost. Enjoy a beer or a wine, at their prices, you can enjoy several! Enjoy the tours offered, insightful and fun! Enjoy the views - open your doors in the morning to the gentle sea, listen to the Fijian children laughing as they walk by - when they see you, you can always expect a big smile and BULA!
We leave here on Monday, after 9 days of bliss. Vinaka to Ngaire, Dennis and your truly wonderful extended Fijian family. We will carry the experience with us always!

Room Tip: Every room is perfectly nestled amongst manicured tropical gardens with a view to the beach!

My son and I are not the most social people being very shy/quiet. However Ngaire and Dennis made us feel very comfortable and at home. Extremely helpful with everything from organising tours to exchanging currency for us. Our bure was exceptionally clean and kept as such throughout our entire stay. Amenities were always topped up and smelled beautiful. The outdoor shower is.....WOW! There were also mosquito coils made available (a life saver for me!). Continental breakfast was really yummy with a variety of cereals and fresh fruit available every day. Thank you so much for the extra papaya (after finding out I loved the fruit) and for the coconut drink on lovo night! Cookie is a superb cook and it is truly amazing what she does with the island's fresh produce. I would LOVE to take cooking lessons from Cookie.....her sublime creations are not to be missed! A massage by Leita is a must as she is a miracle worker with her hands.....talk about being in heaven! The lovo night Ngaire and Dennis organised was momentus and the feast was eye boggling awesome!

I highly recommend Aroha for it's location on the beach and it's proximity to the local shops, church and school. The property is stunning with an immaculate pool and sun lounges positioned overlooking the beach. Ngaire and Dennis's love for the island and it's people is shown in all they say and do at Aroha.

Thank you so much for an unforgettable holiday and I look forward to seeing everyone next year!

Room Tip: All the bures are fantastic, spacious and with a well equipped kitchen.

Like everyone else we had a great time. Just a shame that Dennis was not there. I hope you're fully recovered now. Everything was perfect with Ngaire and co. there when needed. Accomodation was superb and the shower was something amazing - where else can you get that view!!!
Must not forget Cookie's food. Sublime. You have to eat in at least once or regret it for the rest of your life.
If going to Fiji just book here. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: There all superb. Just go for it.

Much like the other 76 positive reviews - I could not find a fault with this independent bastion of great accommodation, stunning views, excellent food - (Bless you Cookie), insightful guides and well managed by Ngaire and Dennis.
Go book now.
