Tiliva Resort - the Great Astrolabe Reef Resort is Fijian owned. Kemu, having spent many years in Europe returned home to establish the resort in order to help his village. It is a small intimate resort offering a very personal service with a true Fijian welcome.
This remote eco resort is set in 18 acres of lush tropical gardens with its own secluded beachfront having magnificent views across the bay to the island of Ono. Its location is just minutes from the Great Astrolabe Reef and Waisomo reserve, yet it is remote, and secluded, far away from the mainstream resorts.
The resort has one beachfront honeymoon bure (bungalow) and five deluxe garden bures with ocean views. The beachfront bure is just footsteps from the beach having a 360 degree veranda one side of which overlooks the sea. It has its own comfortable deck chairs and sun loungers on the veranda.
Kemu and Barbara spent many years in Europe and returned home to establish the resort in order to help their village, Tiliva. They along with the friendly staff take care of guests and make sure their stay is memorable.

Detailed description of the Caring for the Destination Initiative:
The management is active in educating the villagers to be environmentally aware and responsible for this beautiful unspoilt island. In partnership with the village, they are reserving parts of the two beachfronts to encourage the re-growth of corals and breeding of clams.
They generate their own power on a generator and inverter system so the generator only runs for a few hours each day.
