We stayed 11 days at Aroha Taveuni with our 2.5 year old daughter and had the most fantastic experience. Ngaire and Dennis are beautiful hosts and work so hard to create this little paradise with so much attention to detail and respect for their local staff. The highlight of the day was dinner, when Cookie, their Fijian cook, created the most delicious meals (and even accommodated my vegetarian diet). We shared the meal with other guests at Dennis & Ngaire's home and enjoyed talking about our adventures during the day. There is sooooo much you can do on the island... hiking, snorkeling, diving, cycling, playing golf, kayaking, getting to know local people, go to church and enjoy the most amazing singing, horseback riding with a local farmer, etc. Aroha Taveuni is well equipped and we borrowed their kayak, bikes, golf clubs (green fee included!!) for free and explored the island. Dennis & Ngaire as well as their staff are very knowledgeable and can tell you a lot of interesting facts about the island & and their people.
If you're hoping to find a white sandy beach, you might have to take a 20 min taxi ride to the northern part of the island, where you can also find a little restaurant / cafe ("Tromentos") next to that beach with the most amazing views.
I would highly recommend Aroha Taveuni to anyone who wants to get to know "real" Fiji. It's ideal for couples, solo travelers, families with kids and many more.
