Tavarua Island Resort is an easy destination for Australian travellers with direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to Nadi, Fiji. The island staff strives to remove all the worry and stress from your surf experience - from the moment you land - with transfer from the airport to the boat landing and a quick 20-minute boat ride to the island. They are the only resort on the island providing an intimate and personal retreat with 16 air-conditioned beachfront bures, each with two queen size beds and private bath. The bar and restaurant offer three freshly prepared meals daily and boasts the best view in the South Pacific. Where else can you sit back and relax on the oceanfront deck, sipping your favourite drink while watching your mates getting barrelled on one of the most perfect lefts in the world?
When not surfing there are heaps of other activities to keep you busy. Tavarua Island Resort offers fishing, snorkelling, tennis, gymnasium, a resort sized pool and spa, kayaking, Tony Hawk designed skate ramp and SUP boards which are all-inclusive in your package during your stay. There is an island spa providing after surf massage treatments and the resort can arrange scuba diving through a third party on a range of different sytled dive sites for an additional charge.
Reservations for Tavarua are uniquely organised compared to any other resort and are required to be made through a - Group Leader - who works to ensure compatible weekly groups. This way if you are travelling with your family, chances are you will travel during a week with other families, couples with other couples and so on. Surf Travel will facilitate all of this for you and be able to advise you when the resort is available in order to confirm your reservation.
The Island can accommodate 36 adults each week and the island is booked out for one full week from a Saturday to a Saturday. Any guests arriving from Australia will be required to arrive in Nadi, Fiji the previous day due to flight arrival times from Australia not connecting with transfer times to Tavarua. There will be no exceptions for alternative arrangements outside of these times unless prior arrangements have been made when booking your stay and must be definitely made before traveling to the island. The only other alternative to the week long stay is the 3 day weekend escapes which are strictly subject to availability.

Cloudbreak is a thick grinding lefthander which is surfable on all tides. It is a consistent wave that can hold small to solid size swells of 2-20ft and can pump from a range of various different swell directions. Cloudbreak can offer a different form of perfection everyday of spitting barrels or playful long lines.
Namotu Left is a world-class left hand reef break thats more forgiving than its famous neighbour Cloudbreak. When the wind is side shore, Namotu Left is as legendary in the sailboard and kitesurf world as Cloudbreak is in the surfing world. What Restaurants is to Tavarua, Namotu Lefts is to Namotu.
