Tides Reach ReviEW
Good things come in small packages. Or, at least they do on the lush garden island of Taveuni. Tides Reach Resort is an all-inclusive luxury resort with a tiny, white sand beach in front of its four rooms.
After spending four days at the resort, we can confidently say it’s one of our favorite luxury properties in Fiji thanks to the food, friendly staff, spacious rooms, and access to so many outdoor adventures. In this guide, we’ll review Tides Reach Resort in depth with tips on what to expect, what room to pick, and when to go.

Beach: A small white sand beach fronts the resort, one of the only beaches on the island of Taveuni.

There are just four rooms total at Tides Reach Resort. Two of the rooms are two-bedroom beachfront bures with large, spacious bedrooms, an outdoor shower, a stone bathtub with rainwater style shower, a front deck, and lounge chairs.
There are also two single room options, each with a front deck, lounge chairs, spacious bathroom, and outdoor shower.
The room you pick definitely depends on how large your group is. Couples will love the single room option while families and groups should go for the two-bedroom pick. The property itself is very quiet, and all four rooms have views of the sea. Of the four, the room furthest from the restaurant area is the most private.
Restaurant and Bar
All meals take place at the beachside restaurant and bar, a beachy, spacious, and chic space with an additional hangout area. Meals are served at set times of the day, and it’s possible to cater for special dietary requirements (if chefs are notified in advance).
Tides reach also owns a small public cafe next door called The Dive Cafe. It has a quaint lounge deck with tables, couches, and serves a mix of pastries, pizzas, and quick bites to eat. It’s a great place to be come sunset, especially.
