What a fabulous place to stay on Fiji's "Garden Island" of Taveuni. Spectacular views, nice plunge pool to relax in, fabulous property with colorful tropical flowers and local fruit trees. Walk right down the hill to go snorkeling (and use the free kayaks...that are waiting for you there). You can even schedule a scuba diving trip with the dive shop there as well at the famous Rainbow Reef! Such a cute place, nice outdoor shower, lovely kitchen, if you want to stay in and cook your own meals (which I recommend doing). The Owner and the property managers are very responsive, and offer lots of local recommendations, and can also arrange taxi/transportation. Have fun, you deserve it & will enjoy staying here. : )

My wife Annmarie and I had one of the most extraordinary getaway experiences of our lives at Lumani Private Resort in Taveuni, Fiji. We spent 6 amazing nights in Taveuni, 3 nights at Raiwasa and 3 nights at Lomani private resorts. I was lost for words when I first set foot in this wonderful property because everything about this place was so incredible from the food, the activities, the landscape to their very accommodating and hospitable staff. The staff was very friendly, attentive, and anticipated our every need and make us feel so welcome. We loved how every little detail was thought out which made the place so perfect, almost like a paradise as everything you needed is being handed to you. The resort sits on a breath-taking spot where you could watch the sunset or go stargazing and not to mention the amazing food made by 5-star chefs served in different gorgeous locations. Our stay there was so relaxing, all our worries and stress were washed away. The property offers awesome amenities, outside the resort as well! We hiked to the waterfall, we went on sightseeing excursions to a historic 150 year old Church, visited both sides of the international date line, and toured all over our very own private island.. It's truly an out-of-this-world experience and the best vacation we've ever had and for that, we felt so fortunate and grateful to be able to spend a time in this wonderful place in Fiji. This was a once in a lifetime experience and we highly recommend it to anyone.

Bula Chris and Ann Marie, You were the cutest couple! From the very beginning sending me your surprise video at LAX surprising your wife was just the best. We are so happy you had a magical time at Lomani. You really got to experience the beauty of Taveuni staying at Lomani and then onto Raiwasa. Take care and we would love to see you both again one day, Vinaka Saskia, Kelera and Knox

My husband and I stayed at the Lomani during our trip to Fiji in July 2022. The Lomani exceeded our expectations. Knox picked us up at the airport and took us to our villa. Kelera met us there and showed us around. We spent some time in the pool, relaxed in the hammocks, and enjoyed a lovo which Knox prepared on the property. Knox went out of his way to make us comfortable and even brought us to and from the dive shop which was nearby (but challenging for my husband who was scheduled to have a total hip replacement surgery on our return to Los Angeles), We would definitely love to return to the Lomani on our return to Fiji. Saskia, the owner, checked in with us via WhatsApp during our stay to make sure that we were settled in and had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend the Lomani.

Great house, great location, awesome pool. All the needed comfort for a perfect stay. The company who rents out the house also provides activities but most of them you can do on your own with the help of locals, because get tend to get quite expensive but offer a personalized once in a lifetime experience. If we had to give a comment on the house, is it that the water in the shower is eather cold or very hot. But with the warm weather a cold shower wa sore than welcoming. BTW sasha, the owner of the house, is the most friendly host ever. She makes sure every guest feels at home, helps with all the questions or problems and follows up everything like a professional is supposed to do. Special thanks to her for the great care.

Lomani is set on a beautiful spot at the top of a hill, with a view unlike any other! It was such a cosy stay and we felt very relaxed. We would recommend to anyone wanting to relax and feel as though they are away from hustle and bustle. I’ll definitely be booking Lomani again in the future!

Definitely the place to stay in Taveuni! There are stunning views and the sunsets are unreal. The dive and snorkel shop is a quick walk down the hill. Close to other resorts and restaurants. Rosie was wonderful at helping to coordinate the experiences around the island, and Nox was an awesome driver who filled us in with local knowledge and history of the island as he took us to all of the best spots.

We appreciated being met by Nox at the airport and taken to a small supermarket before being introduced to the delights of Lomani. Nox was quite delighted to tell us we were the oldest guests to stay there, I can assure travellers that it is not just a place for honeymooners! Unfortunately it rained bucket loads during our week but the pool and deck were a great place to hang out in spite of this. The pool is just perfect for a couple and was pristine sparkling. After a busy week with family on Viti Levu we enjoyed the peace that Lomani provides. How special to pick fresh pineapples in the garden and papaya and limes from the trees! We visited a nearby village with Nox one day and enjoyed seeing the local life. The neighbouring Nakia Resort was a great place for dinner when we couldn't be bothered cooking, and just a few minutes walk away. The delightful Dog (yes, that is his name) escorted us there and waited to bring us home. We also had Nox take us to Coconut Grove for dinner one night, another pleasant evening on Taveuni. Thanks Saskia for your excellent communication and information, and Nox and Tukana for your care. It was a week to remember. Vinaka.

My wife and I were very pleased to stay in this beautiful, private spot. The pool was terrific. The well appointed house, bedroom, living room and separate kitchen building were wonderful. The view is stunning! The caretaker, Knox, picked us up, took us grocery shopping as well as delivered us to our next destination on Taveuni Island. I highly recommend it.

We had a lovely stay at Lomani for our honeymoon this May. Knox, the caretaker, was extremely helpful and kind from the very start. After picking us up at the airport (the smallest one we've ever been to!), he took us to the supermarket and the village to stock up on supplies. He told us what was available at the house (garlic, sugar, laundry detergent, etc) and where the best places were to buy the food that we wanted for the 4 days we stayed. When we arrived at Lomani we were impressed by the place...it was beautiful inside and out! Knox was available to drive us to hikes and anything else we wanted to do for a small fee, all of which is written in the comprehensive guide Saskia provides. We did the Lavena Coastal Walk which was beautiful! We rode bikes to the local village and tried to kayak one day but it was too windy. Just relaxing at Lomani was my favorite thing to do. The hammock chairs on the deck were our favorite place to hang out. There was also a great movie selection and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook each night. We loved our stay at Lomani!
