If you want a real south seas adventure off the regular tourist route, but mixed with fine dining and excellent personalized service, Tiliva is it!

This is an amazing, one-of-a-kind destination. The owners, Dee and Eric, instantly make you feel welcome and at home. Ideal for honeymooners or families with children. Bures are secluded, and steps from the beach and nature. Accommodations (tastefully decorated with original artworks), food and staff (Masi, Johnny and Ethany are the best!) better than any 5 star resort. You will...

I stayed at Tiliva for 4 nights as a solo traveller, and from the moment I stepped of the boat, the owners Dee and Eric and all the staff, especially Masi, Ethany and Johnny me feel extremely welcome.

My wife and I spent a month travelling through Fiji 10 years ago and we loved it. We did not make it to Kadavu on that trip, but decided to go there next time we visited Fiji. We chose Tiliva Resort after reading all the 5 star recommendations on Tripadvisor. We were a bit surprised to hear when we arrived...

What a magical place. We were met at the Kadavu airstrip by Tulala, a boatman from Tiliva Village. We had a wonderful hour and a quarter boat ride through the clear waters between the island and the Astrolabe Reef. At the resort private beach we were greeted by owner Kemu, and Masi & Siteri.
