Our cool and unique Tree House is the definition of island style peace and harmony. It comfortably fits two to four and is hidden away on an old coconut plantation with an ocean vista and just a short walk from Taveuni's best beaches.

The space

Immerse yourself in the luxury of the Fiji Islands. This unique and opulent opportunity offers couples, families and perhaps even battered backpackers a place to relax and rejuvenate amid a flourishing postcard-perfect paradise. You can see happiness from here.

Taveuni, aptly named Fiji’s Garden Isle, is the country’s third largest island and is comprised of one very large, but dormant,volcano. Steeped in nature’s sweetest secrets, with a Mataqali (family) of friendly Fijians charged as her caretakers, the island and surrounding waters are home to the Rainbow Reef, one of many world-famous dive sites; Lake Tagimoucia, the hiding place of the fabled Tagimoucia flower; Bouma National Heritage Park, Waitavala Waterslide and Lavena Point, which each boast several majestic mid-jungle waterfalls; as well as Ravilevu Nature Preserve and Taveuni Forest, two of the island’s most prolific bird sanctuaries.

Incredibly, the island offers even more. Eco-industry abounds here, keeping the island in its presently pristine condition. The land is laden with organically grown fruit, root and vegetable gardens. Fresh fish are sustainably farmed. Even the sweet-smelling coconut and frangipani massage oils are sourced from the islands own natural resources and created using practices passed down through generations of earth-aware Fijians.

With so much natural beauty, tradition and inherent culture, it’s easy to see why discerning vacationers and enchanted expats,along with their fellow Fijians, have been hiding away here all these years.

Maravu, the exclusive resort of which your private rental is a part, is nestled nicely between Welagi and Naselesele villages, right around the corner from the Matei Airport, and within walking distance to the beach, bus and local convenience shops.

Our Treehouse, the highest house on the property, is fitted out with the finest of Fiji furniture. Stress mysteriously disappears as you ascend the 75 steps to your treetop retreat, turn and take in the view of Somosomo Strait stretching as far as the eye can see. Paradise looms at every angle… especially from the sprawling deck which runs the length of the structure and houses a hammock, chaise lounge chairs, outdoor dining area and even a secret stone shower where you can soap up in style beneath the sunny (or starry) skies. Inside, you’ll find the hardwood floors coupled with locally hand-made furniture make quite a cozy sitting and sleeping space. Soft leather warrior-style club chairs create the perfect space to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book, a beautifully draped four-poster bed sets the scene for romance uninhibited, and if things get too hot, just fold open your glass paneled front wall to let in the soft sea breeze.

A slight twist on the conventional is what really makes Maravu surprisingly special. This remote resort has been reimagined into a humble hostel, where local interaction and eco-living are the order of the day.

Structures on the property are provided with Fijian-made candles (and bright twinkling stars) to light their night once the sun has set.

Staff operate serenely, on Fiji time, and can often be found conversing quietly with guests or giving weaving, cooking and other village-life lessons. Happily they share their culture with any eager ears they happen to come across.

Although your private Treehouse is set apart from the larger resort compound, you are welcome at any time to join other guests in resort activities or make use of the restaurant, bar, pool or spa. Alternatively, you may choose to relax in the reclusiveness of your treetop sanctuary and allow our smiling staff to provide you with in-room food, beverage and massage services.

Our concierge booking desk is also at your disposal, and our local team is ready at all times to share their secret island knowledge to help you plan-out, make reservations and schedule transportation for your idyllic day.

Other things to note

In previous years, the Treehouse was offered as a 5 star property, but this is no longer the case. Please do not expect a 5 star holiday!

Please note that i (Henry) no longer live on Taveuni Island, but i have a great Taveuni Treehouse team to take care of all the Treehouse guests :)

And also, 75 steps will lead you to the Treehouse property so expect a significant workout!

The treehouse is great. The view is amazing and for the money nothing comes close. This is your place in Tavuni, look no further. One thing to be aware of are the stairs, there are lots and provide a workout while you are there that we appreciated. Bula

The tree house looks remarkable and was a great experience. The views are breathtaking and the tree house is fairly luxurious for accommodation in the jungle. The area of improvement could be to provide hot water for showers instead of warm water. But tavueni is a rain forest that experiences humid conditions so we could live with the water. The tree house is what it looks like in the pictures. On a side note, the tree house shares its grounds with Maravu, which is a backpackers hostel. But the staff and guests are all hospitable as it is a tiny island. Worth checking the reviews on Maravu on trip advisor before booking.

You'll be hard pressed to find a better location, or more scenic stay than the treehouse. Our stay there, and at maravu resort in general, was very nice. Staff was great and friendly, food at the bar was delicious.

We had a wonderful stay at the Treehouse in Taveuni. It is a sanctuary which the most amazing views and was very spacious for 3 adults. I definitely can recommend this place if you are looking for a retreat and relaxing getaway. The staff at the Maravu resort are helpful and always up for a laugh! We loved our trip to Taveuni Island, thanks Henry!

I love islands, beaches, seafood, volleyball, culture fusion, but most of all, i love travelling. I've travelled around the world and found my favourite spot...Fiji!

My family's business is hospitality based and i manage a couple of tropical enterprises including impossibly beautiful properties in the luscious Taveuni area. Our style is simple, fun, eco, adventurous, and atmospheric that works in harmony with outer island villages. I'm excited to be involved with, to open the door for intrepid travellers, to an immaculate tropical island paradise.
