Matei, Taveuni Island, Fiji

Our Thoughts on Tides Reach Resort
It takes only a little extra effort to get to, but what awaits you at the end of your journey is an exceptional holiday experience for young and old alike.  Tides Reach is perfectly located right on a private sand cove beach only 5 minute-drive from Taveuni’s airport and Matei Village.  Taveuni is a very special island which abounds with natural features like the famous Bouma Waterfalls, sliding rocks, deserted off-shore islands, coast and forest walking trails, caves, gardens, exceptional game fishing, spectacular diving and surfing, and truly amazing sunsets.  Tides Reach is in an ideal location from which to enjoy all this and more. 

The resort itself is a gem; comprising four beautifully presented ultimate beachfront Villas flanking an amazing Lodge.  The Lodge exudes such a perfect feeling of calmness and tranquillity, you just want to be there for hours enjoying the internal lounge which flows out to a wide wooden deck (with the resort’s horizon plunge pool off one end) and the outdoor living area too.  Everything about the Lodge is comfortable, from the over-stuffed lounge furniture to the outdoor settings and the gentle rocking chairs down to the attentive but discrete wait-staff.  The lodge restaurant is another delight.  All meals are included in the tariff at Tides Reach and the food, most of which is sourced locally or grown in the resort’s own organic garden, is delicious.  Stay a week or two or three and you will never tire of the amazing variety and quality of the food. 

The interior of Taveuni Island has a high, rocky landscape which gives rise to its many waterfalls and streams, but Tides Reach is on the norther plain area on a beautiful beach with the mountains as a romantic backdrop.  The beach is kept private by a headland at one end and by a grove of large old trees at the other end.  The waves break on the edge of the reef out at the edge of the large lagoon out front. Every morning you wake up to the murmur of the waves as you take in the enchanting view from your Villa.  In the evenings, round-globe lamps are placed along the edge of the lawn in front of your deck to guide you to and from the restaurant.  There is no place anywhere in the South Pacific where it is better than here to enjoy the sunset over the distant islands while the boats in the lagoon bob in the glow of the setting sun.   

At Tides Reach you can be as active as you like, there is a long list of inclusions in the nightly tariff and another wide range of optional activities too. There are excellent dive and fishing sites nearby, excursions to the waterfalls and sliding rocks are easily arranged, take up the opportunity to enjoy a jet ski ride and don’t miss the massage treatments available. 

The resort caters for a maximum 16 guests, so you will never be in a crowd.  Give yourself a minimum of five days here – seven is better as that gives you access to their Stay 7/Pay 6 year-round special plus that much more time to enjoy this remarkable place.
