About the property

Taveuni-Honeymoon Beachfront Cottage on secluded white sand beach. Aduts only

Coconut Grove is located directly on the ocean on Taveuni, Fiji's #1 honeymoon destination. Privacy is assured because our property has only 3 romantic honeymoon cottages. This is ideally suited for those who want a quiet, intimate holiday far from cell phones, televisions and discos.

There are 3 criteria for a tropical island holiday:

1. golden, sandy beachfront (not rocks or black sand)

2. quiet (i.e. no little ones) & private (only 3 cottages, all couples)

3. great food

Because we are the only property on Taveuni that meets all 3 criteria, we tend to fill up early. It's what an island holiday is meant to be....swaying palms, a hammock outside of your bure & a secluded golden sand beach right at your front door. You will stay in luxury at an affordable price

Come & see our Taveuni & experience the beauty of this island & its people.

You will have the vacation of a lifetime.

Amenities:: We have 24 hour electricity, outdoor hot water honeymoon showers, daily maid service, fridge in the cottage for cold drinks, in room safes for valuables & room service. There are chaise lounges and hammocks here on the property and on the beach for you to use. We are right on some of the finest snorkeling and diving reefs in Fiji. We also have horseback riding, kayaking,& nature walks as well as bicycles here for you.

Meals are served every evening at the restaurant, on your private veranda or better yet, on your secluded beach by candlelight.

Activities: : Beach, scuba diving, beach, snorkeling, beach, world heritage nature walks, beach, kayaking, beach, horseback riding, beach, fishing, beach, snoozing, beach, swimming, beach, sun, beach, surf, beach.

Area: : Your cottage is steps from the beach. It is a protected reef, ideally suited for snorkeling no matter how skilled you are.

About Ronna Goldstein

Travelled for 2 years, trying to decide what was next after having quit my high paying job in the U.S.

My ex said 'I know this place called Fiji in the South Pacific'

the rest is history

Ronna Goldstein purchased this cottage in 1990

What makes this cottage unique

It's all about the people here.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I went to Fiji with my best friend for our 30th birthdays. We stayed at two different resorts on Taveuni and I have to say we absolutely loved Coconut Grove!! We truly felt like we were at home there. The staff to extremely good care of us, even packed us a lunch for our long flight home...and when we forgot it, Ronna came speeding up to the airport in her golf cart to drop it off!! :) Everything was seriously amazing, great hospitality, food, scenery, sleeping arrangments, etc!!
