What makes Tuvununu so special is the wonderful, happy, friendly local staff, and the amazing food made with locally sourced fish and vege, and the interaction with traditional Fijian arts and crafts.
The staff really love to share their local area and their lifestyle with all the guests. The scene is set for interaction with traditional island life and culture and adventure. Make friends with the staff and you may experience Fiji beyond the Tourism facade- the real story!
The food is most often cooked with all local fruits and vege and seafood. Our cooks have a unique style and flavour that could found in some of Fiji's 5 star resorts, but at backpacker prices. Guests are often welcome to learn and/or be involved with the meal preparation and local cooking styles.
