Villa Accommodation on Taveuni

We get it, a secluded island dubbed the “Garden Island” such as Taveuni deserves the tranquillity of a private villa.

Whether you’re looking for a luxury escape or somewhere where you can enjoy a more independent holiday, we’ll go through some of your best accommodation option in this quick list of villas on Taveuni.
