If you have questions about our surf experiences, please review some of the commonly asked questions that we've collected here.
What is the dress attire on Tavarua Island?
+
ANSWER:
The Fijian culture encourages conservative dress codes for locals. Women are almost fully clothed from head to toe and men usually wear 'sulus' or long skirts as this is the respectable and appropriate attire in the villages on the main island(s). While on vacation at Tavarua Island Resort, we ask that you be aware of these cultural dress norms. As the island offers a relaxed environment, we recommend casual resort wear during the day (swimwear, board shorts, coverups, tank tops, shorts, sandals, hats, and protective sun-wear). In the evenings, casual elegance is suggested. Options include summer dresses, skirts, and blouses for ladies and collared shirts and trousers for men. During mealtimes, we ask that ladies wear a beach coverup or sarong while in and around the dining area(s). Vinaka for understanding and respecting our beloved Fijian culture!
How can I donate to the Fijian staff and their families?
+
ANSWER:
Any and all donations are greatly appreciated but not obligatory. Traditionally, guests have gifted items during our kava ceremony on Thursday night. Items might include things like: school supplies, clothing, slippers, toothbrushes, or sporting equipment. If you'd like to donate money, we have the Tavarua staff Christmas fund which is a tipping pool that's evenly distributed twice a year. Thank you for supporting our staff!
How do I purchase Kava for Fiji night?
+
ANSWER:
The easiest way is to inquire with our front desk once on island. They will be happy to help organize this for you!
How do I get from the airport to the island?
+
ANSWER:
An air-conditioned Tavarua Island bus and/or van will meet you at the airport and transport you to the boat launch. Most of our arrivals land early in the morning, so our transport team takes guests to a location for a rest/breakfast prior to heading for the boat launch. This breakfast is NOT included in your tour package. The ride usually takes a scenic 35 – 40 minutes traveling through family farms and sugar cane fields before arriving at the shore. Once at the launch, porters will load your boards and bags onto our island boats. It is a good idea to have on board shorts or beach clothing on as you may get wet. Reef shoes or slippers are also recommended. Depending on the tide, you will take a short walk (at times in shallow water) across a soft reef to board the boats. Helicopter transfers can also be arranged for an additional charge, please inquire with your booking agent for more information.
Do you provide snorkel gear?
+
ANSWER:
We have a selection of masks/snorkels and fins to use during your stay. If you are a serious enthusiast, we recommend you bring your personal gear.
Do you provide surfboards?
+
ANSWER:
We provide a selection of soft tops available at a first come, first serve basis. We also have a small lineup of SUPs and Kayaks as well. It's advised to bring your own quiver if you're after something more serious than a soft top.
How do I arrange for a snorkel boat?
+
ANSWER:
Please inquire with the boat shed and/or front office to organize a snorkel boat if you have 3 or more people. Snorkel boats most commonly go to Namotu or the Sand Bar.
What's the surf boat schedule?
+
ANSWER:
There are 4 scheduled surf boats a day - 1st is at sunrise (between 5:30-6am), 2nd is at 9:30am, 3rd is at 1pm and 4th is at 3:30pm. If guests would like to organize an additional boat at a different time to a different surf break, you can inquire with the boys at the boat shed to schedule. A minimum of 5 people is suggested.
How do I tip?
+
ANSWER:
Tavarua has a “staff Christmas fund” which is a tip pool that is evenly distributed to the staff twice a year. You can organize this through the office upon checkout. You can also leave a tip for a particular staff member if desired. Cash and credit are accepted. Vinaka for supporting our staff!
Do you offer surf lessons?
+
ANSWER:
Yes! Between our volunteer lifeguards and local Fijian boatmen, you are sure to catch your very first wave or improve your surfing abilities while on Tavarua (for an additional fee)!
What is "Fiji Night"?
+
ANSWER:
On Thursday night we celebrate Fiji or "Lovo" night for our staff to welcome guests in a traditional way. Tropical attire is encouraged but not mandatory. The island population comes together on a woven mat for a Fijian kava ceremony or “Sevu Sevu”. During the ceremony, guests have the option to make an offering or say a few words. We also celebrate by cooking underground in a “lovo” and serving local dishes followed by a “Meke” of singing and dancing with our Tavarua entertainment group. This experience will surely be a highlight of your week!
Do you have Wifi?
+
ANSWER:
Yes! We provide several WiFi packages available for hourly/daily/weekly use for one or multiple devices. Rates vary depending on which package you choose. Keep in mind that Tavarua Island is remotely located - we offer the best service currently available and will continue to upgrade as the technology and reliability improve. Please inquire at the front office.
I have kids, are there any snacks in between the 3 meals?
+
ANSWER:
We do provide a big bowl of fruit to snack from in between meals and serve appetizers prior to dinner. If you think you or your family might require more food, we offer smoothies from the Restaurant Bar for purchase and some light snacks in the boutique.
Is the kitchen able to accommodate dietary restrictions?
+
ANSWER:
Yes, our kitchen is happy to accommodate special dietary restrictions. Please let us know ahead of time by informing your booking agent and/or our front desk.
How do I access drinking water during my stay?
+
ANSWER:
We encourage you to bring your reusable water bottles for your stay. We have two water stations (one located in the restaurant and one by the boat shed) where you can fill up with our delicious chilled drinking water. If you forget a water bottle, we sell awesome Tavarua-branded Mizu bottles in the boutique.
Is the water safe to drink on Tavarua?
+
ANSWER:
Yes! We are proud to provide our guests with a top-of-the-line reverse osmosis with UV sterilization water filtration system that will keep you hydrated and happy during your stay!
Do I need a special plug to charge my devices?
+
ANSWER:
In Fiji the power plugs and sockets are of type I. The standard voltage is 240 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz. If you are traveling from America, you will need to use a plug adapter to fit a US plug into a Fijian power outlet. We provide adapters for purchase in our boutique. However, the bures are conveniently equipped with built-in USB wall outlets.
Do the rooms have air conditioning?
+
ANSWER:
Yes, all bures are equipped with both AC and fans to ensure a comfortable lounging and sleeping experience.
Do you provide shampoo, conditioner and body soap?
+
ANSWER:
We are proud to provide a wonderful lineup of Pure Fiji products for your stay. Should you run out of anything, please let our front office know.
Do you have pack n plays available for my baby or toddler?
+
ANSWER:
Yes. Please request a pack n play ahead of time so that we are able to get it setup and ready for your arrival.
Do you have Babysitting services?
+
ANSWER:
Yes, our Fijians nannies are famous for their loving nature towards children and tend to develop lasting relationships with our child guests. Please let us know in advance if you are interested in childcare via email as our nannies are brought in from villages off island. We can provide you with current rates and often take special requests. We offer this service hourly or at a day rate. Our most popular day rate option allows for full flexibility and a dedicated, on-call sitter for the duration of your stay. Planning ahead will allow you to start your nanny service immediately upon arrival.
What essentials do I need to bring?
+
ANSWER:
The sun is more powerful in Fiji so sun protection is key! Hats, sunglasses, sunscreen and a rash guard are highly recommended. As the typical weather is warm, casual loungewear, plenty of swimwear and a light rain jacket for afternoon wind and showers might come in handy. Many guests bring a lite board bag for surf transfer and a waterproof bag for the daily essentials. We also recommend a simple first aid kit to keep on hand. Our boutique carries most of the necessities should you forget anything. It’s recommended that serious enthusiasts bring their personal gear for activities that the island usually provides for. If these activities are your primary focus skateboards, tennis rackets and favorite snorkel gear are worth bringing along. The same thing applies with fishing.
