Breakfast
This is one of a few places in the area that has this feature.
Tavola Villa Fiji is privately situated on 8 acres with majestic views of Savusavu Bay and convenient access to town. Our sprawling 5-bedroom villa is right on the water's edge. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets from our spacious lounge and sparkling infinity pool. We provide free use of kayaks, snorkels and yoga gear. Our captained boat can take you to explore vibrant reefs. Daily housekeeping included. Daily meal plans, prepared by our private chef, are available as an additional add-on.

The space
Meander through stunning jungle gardens of frangipani, hibiscus and red ginger cascading to the sea. We're the perfect location for a remote yet accessible South Pacific experience — 10 minutes drive from Savusavu Airport, between the quaint town of Savusavu and the world-renowned Cousteau Resort.

The villa is comprised of seven separate buildings on two levels. The inviting kitchen, chic lounge, spacious master bedroom and entertainment deck with infinity pool comprise the upper level. The breezy master bedroom opens to an ocean-view deck and a private tropical garden. It offers spacious closets, dual sinks set on a raintree slab, an indoor rainbath shower and separate toilet, and an outdoor garden shower under the stars.

The lower level, connected by a 30 meter pathway through towering stands of bamboo, houses two bungalows, each with a bedroom, queen size bed, lounge and bath. Each bath has a rainbath shower and separate toilet. The lounge is perfect for your creative endeavors, or can be configured for sleeping, with either two single beds or a king size bed, enabling the villa to comfortably sleep 10. In addition, we have infant cots available. Every bungalow opens to an ocean-view private veranda overlooking our gorgeous bay.

Our dedicated staff offer true Fijian hospitality and consists of our on-site manager and concierge, private chef (if you opt to add daily meal plans), housekeeping and laundry, boat captain (if you opt to add private boat hire), personal masseuse (if you opt to add massages) and groundskeeper. We are delighted to welcome you home with nourishing gourmet fare. Our name "Tavola" honors the indigenous, medicinal grand-dame Tavola tree of Fiji, as well as the Italian phrase "a tavola" meaning "family table". It is the memories and connections created when we gather together that makes life so very precious. Our guests consistently rave about our South Pacific fusion cuisine. As an additional add-on, we can provide daily meal plans, prepared by your personal chef fresh from the land and sea, and adapted to your dietary preferences. Our daily meal plan includes breakfast, picnic lunch, snacks and a family style 3-course dinner. Our daily housekeeping will take care of your dishes.

There are two beautiful formal eating areas, one indoor and one outdoor, each with expansive views of the bay and the lush green mountains beyond. The open-concept kitchen is a chef's dream with a separate food preparation area, a conventional oven, large wood-fired pizza oven, gas bbq, and Weber bbq. It is well equipped with two refrigerators, as well as expansive cupboard and counter space. There is a traditional lovo pit (Fijian earthen oven) at the rear of the house which also has a spit BBQ and a separate outdoor dining area set in lush surrounds.

Down the path to our beach you'll discover a fairy tree house. The boat shed is located at the water level and houses kayaks and snorkeling gear, included for use during your stay. There is also the option to hire our captained 23-foot skiff Ossus (a Star Wars nod to the owner's time working for Lucasfilm) which can be used for fishing, snorkeling and bay excursions. Captain Jack expertly guides our guests to phenomenal reefs and sandbars for picnics. There is also a playing field with expansive views to the rear of the villa where guests can enjoy volleyball, bocce ball, footy and the like, and there are activities to delight even the most energetic children of all ages such as trampoline, flying fox, and rope swings. At the villa you will find free weights and yoga gear for your use consisting of mats, blankets, blocks and straps. And we are delighted to arrange on-location massage for you. Truly, there is no more inspiring place to revive and get into your yoga groove than the native vesi decks of Tavola overlooking Savusavu Bay. Magic.

In addition to the on-property activities on offer, we are delighted to recommend and arrange local excursions. So many of our guests enjoy a trip to a Fijian village, hiking to a waterfall, snorkeling in some of the world's most vibrant and diverse coral gardens in pristine Natewa Bay, diving with nearby Cousteau Resort (Northern Fiji is lauded worldwide for its exceptional diving), attending a chocolate workshop at KokoMana cacao farm, a picnic and swim at the meteor-created saltwater Blue Lagoon, a stroll through the Savusavu market, and other exciting ways to make your holiday special and experience the beauty of a heart-centered culture.

If you're keen to explore further afield from your base at Tavola Fiji, we can plan a day trip for you to the garden isle of Taveuni where you can stand on both sides of the international dateline and explore the native, organic gardens of Gaia Tree Sanctuary. Another exceptional experience is a day trip and hike to remote petroglyphs that legend says were created by an advanced race of man who had mastered time.

Check in is 4pm and check out is 10am. Maximum group size is 10.
