Bibi's Hideaway - Matei

Bibi's Hideaway Slice of paradise on 5 acres of gardens Honeymoon bure
Comfortable and clean Interior Family bure (cottage)  

Bibi's Hideaway offers one of the most popular, value priced accommodation facilities in Taveuni.

Located in Matei along the beautiful coastal road, Bibi's offers a slice of heaven and paradise, Taveuni style. It has two bures (cottages) offering a wide range of well-priced facilities from family through to honeymoon and also a homestay which is reasonably priced.

Bibi's is a locally run, family operation. Your hosts Paulina Bibi and her family are charming, hospitable and will attend to all your needs.

There are plenty of local plants and flowers growing in the five acres of lush tropical gardens, with an abundance of tropical fruits, including pineapple, paw-paw (papaya), mango, bananas and coconut, amongst others, which are all available for use by guests (for free).

The two bures on site include: family bure that can sleep 4-5 people and a honeymoon cottage (sleeps 2). All bures are self-contained and you can buy your groceries at the local supermarkets such as MH Supermarket in Naqara (cheapest) or the Sunset mini-store in Naselesele.

Bibi's is well located, close to all the major restaurants and beach access is only a five minute walk and is close to a local dive operator.

Bibi's is also on the bus route from Vuna to Bouma, so sight-seeing by the bus is very accessable, as is a trip to Tavoro falls located at Bouma National Park, however you will require a local guide if you want to see all the three falls at Bouma.
