Fiji, Spent 7 days at the beachcomer island resort meeting twenty somethings, drinking with twenty somethings, laughing at sunburnt twenty somethings, and getting sick of twenty somethings. I also tried to teach myself to do backflips. Advise for learning to do backflips: If you don't get it the first twenty times, it's probably not going to happen …
... works from 7-11 pm, but it still trumps our backpacking expectations and wants.
Come night, I enjoy looking at the stars through the silhouettes of the numerous coconut palms. But beware to not keep your eyes in the sky for too long: in the night, the frogs come out. So be sure to have a torch with you, because misters and missises toads won't get out of your way, they just stay put and it is you that needs to choose a different route. Fair enough. ...

It's crazy to think we were exactly 180 degrees (completely opposite) from Greenwich. We then used our Lonely Planet guide to walk up through forest, past some villagers, past some inmates relaxing outside their rooms (they seemed very happy to see us . . . made me feel slightly worried!!) and ...
... beautiful clear water, exotic birds flying all around, and tons of trees and green bushes. Yeah this is paradise I said to myself as I headed into the water. It took about 10 minutes to walk around the small island and as we ate lunch we chatted about what it would be like if we got stuck out here. What would happen if the boat's engine didn't start and we were stuck on this remote island in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. I saw ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Coconut Grove Beachfront Cottages Taveuni Island
Best place to stay in Taveuni
Talk about a fantastic place to stay. . . The nicest people, Ronna (the owner) so nice and helpful...Lagi, Serah, Petro, Elenoa, Kata, Lily.. Such great locals, always wanting to please you. They made our stay so incredible... It was Great food, Excellent prices and the best people that will bring us back to the Coconut Grove Cottages. We miss them as they became a part of our hearts. Oh... and the diving, snorkeling, kayaking,,,, it was fun too! See you soon !
From the welcome mango and papaya drink to the staff singing us a farewell song Coconut Grove was a wonderful place to stay. We would particularly recommend the Banana Bure which is closest to the beach and slightly more set aside from the main property (listening to the surf in bed is addictive).
The best lobster of my life
We stayed at Coconut Grove for a week. The food was really good. I did have the best lobster of my life there; my husband had the best lamb chops of his life. The staff was very pleasant. The "cottage" was roomy, comfortable, well-designed, airy, constructed with beautiful wood. The outdoor shower screened with banana trees was wonderful; we would have liked to take it home with us, banana trees and all. We went on a bird walk with a local guide who was knowledgeable and considerate. We went to a Sunday church service, in Fijian, where the singing was astoundingly beautiful.
Coconut Grove Beachfront Cottages is a place where dreams become reality. As you arrive you will first be met by Grace, the grand dame and doberman of the resort. Next will come wayward Kirby, the young german shepherd...very anxious to have a new friend for the beach. Don't worry, this is but the beginning of a long line for greeting you. Each individual bure has its own special personality. All nicely appointed. I liked the outdoor shower. The beach in front stretches for miles. The reef is a short swim away with spectacular snorkling. The view from the deck is only surpassed by the food served there. All this is over seen by the owner, Ronna Goldstein, with a personallity bigger than life itself. To me, she is what makes Coconut Grove so special. Ronna will take you in and introduce the staff to you as if you were long lost family. She knows all on the island and takes great pride in introducing you to her "neighborhood." It was wonderful to get an insider's perspective of what to see and where to go. I too heard of the many incredible works Ronna is a part of on the island. Our week stay came all to soon to an end. Coconut Grove is a stay with an excentric aunt who wants to share all that she loves and cares for with her new found friends. Anyone can run a hotel. Ronna oversees a " Home for her personal Guests."
We were fortunate enough to have been directed to the Coconut Grove Resort by a friend. Having looked at a number of accommodations on Taveuni while we were there, we fully appreciated the advice we were given. The owner of Coconut Grove treated us very well throughout our 12 day stay. We loved the food which was excellent, the best on the island in our experience and ultimately not that expensive for what we enjoyed.
Three years ago we spent two weeks of our honeymoon in Taveuni, at Coconut Grove.
My husband and I traveled to Fiji for the first time in October 2005 - what a wonderful way to celebrate our second anniversary! We spent 4 days on Taveuni, and stayed at the Coconut Grove cottages. We really enjoyed our stay, and would definitely book with Ronna again. Our bure (Mango) was spacious and airy, with a wonderful view of the water from our front veranda. There was a "family feeling" among the guests of the small resort and with the staff, who all quickly learned our names and provided wonderful service. Meals at the restaurant are excellent - definitely some of the best on the island! Coconut Grove is nice for animal lovers as well - Ronna's dogs and cats are very friendly. A word of advice: Spend more than 4 days on Taveuni. It's a beautiful, protected island with world-class diving and plenty to explore topside. -- Drena & Jeff, Gilbert AZ
My family and I got back from our third trip to Coconut Grove cottages on the island of Taveuni in October (2005). We travel all over the world ( we spent the month of May in Spain and France) but when we want to stop the world and get off, we fly to see Ronna and her wonderful staff in the most restful and beautiful places on this earth-Coconut Grove. Ronna is a delight with a sense of humor that keeps us in stitches daily. We look forward to seeing her every day. The food is some of the best we have had anywhere (including the French Laundry in Napa, California). Do not miss the New Zealand lamb chops that are marinated and cooked to perfection. The fruits and vegetables are all grown in Ronna's own organic field that you can visit. The bures are private, beautiful, clean and sweet. We are used to staying at 4 and 5 star hotels when we travel, so we are very picky. There are no hawkers that want to bother you, yet if you want to snorkel, go scubadiving, boat, visit another island, hike to a waterfall, see the local village or dateline Ronna will happily arrange it for you in a day or that same day and the transportation will magically appear and wisk you away for a great time. The beach is right out your bure front door. It is pristine and a few steps away from one of our other favorite spots-the two person hammock.
We stayed here for 6 days of a 3 week honeymoon. Taveuni is a stunning, idyllic tropical haven & the Coconut Grove was lovely. Owner Ronna Goldstein was not.
Just recently, my husband and I travelled to Taveuni island in Fiji. I had read about the beauty and the pristine rainforests etc. about the island, which prompted me to go there, as well as the international date line crossing in the middle of the island.
