The Legendary Rainbow Reef...

The legendary Rainbow Reef - just 20 mins from Paradise 


 One of the most famous dives sites accessible from Paradise Taveuni is the Great White Wall. This is a site not to be missed! An underwater escarpment from 15-60 meters (50-200 feet) - though dive trips only cover to a depth of 30 metres – that is covered with a slightly luminescent white coral tinged with lavender. 

32 km of the best diving in Fiji on our doorstep in Paradise 


Other notable sites include Dakuniba Pass, a wall dive with pelagics such as barracuda, shark, tuna and the prettily coloured Annie’s Bommie, with a kaleidoscope of soft corals and reef fish.

Blue Ribbon Eel Reef presents a drift dive opportunity to spot the Blue Ribbon Eel, whereas the
Cabbage Patch features an abundant garden-like display of cabbage looking hard corals. 
Other sites include Yellow Tunnel, Jerry’s Jelly and The Ledge...!!!

Paradise is all OK after TC Tomas

In the aftermath of Tropical Cyclone Tomas, we are all well in Paradise and in clean up mode. 

All accommodation bures are undamaged and the only damage we sustained has been to the grounds. 

All of our 10 Guests that were with us during the cyclone are well and in good spirits and many of them are even helping with the clean up. 

We have power and water and Paradise Taveuni is fully operational and will continue to be. Land lines and mobile phone access has been cut throughout the Island, however domestic flights have been reinstated to Taveuni and we are quite bus in Paradise with the JR Aquatic Dive Group that have recently arrived. 

Our shore dives directly in front of the Resort have received some damage, however Vuna Reef and Rainbow Reef dive sites in all intact. 

A big Thank You to all of our staff and local villagers who have been helping us put the gardens back in place. 


Some of our staff and neighbours have lost their homes and Paradise Taveuni has started a special fund to help raise money for those families in need. We will be supplying building materials and clothing. Should you want to help, please contact us at Paradise

Thank you to many of you for your warm wishes.
