We staid for three weeks at Aroha Taveuni and loved every second of it! From the outset we were made to feel like we were at home and nothing was too much trouble for Ngaire or Dennis to arrange for us. As a couple without children we found the arrangement absolutely perfect - Aroha is located conveniently close to Somosomo village and there are bikes to hire to ride into town or it's only a short stroll to the nearby shops. The layout of the bures is fantastic, providing plenty of privacy. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and everything you need for cooking (if you can resist Cookie's cooking!), while the outdoor shower is lovely!
The natural environment of the local area is stunning! We enjoyed many days diving on the Somosomo strait as well as hiking up to Lake Aselemo, enjoying the Lavena Coastal walk and Tavoro Falls. Ngarie is great at encouraging you to get out and see the local environment and arranging everything for you.
A real treat while staying here was the Lovo nights that Denis and Ngarie arrange. You can watch the meals being made from scratch and learn how to make coconut milk, while enjoying the Fijian singing and kava. Cookie's night time meals were always delicious and my dietary restrictions were always accommodated. It was a lovely experience to sit around the main house table at the end of each day and compare stories with the other guests.
We would highly recommend staying here to couples and families alike. We were heartbroken to leave and will definitely be coming back!
