“Great place and people, would def return!”
This resort is on one of the most stunning islands we've seen. The water is a clear torquoise blue, the sand is soft and golden, there is fantastic coral reef snorkelling/swimming right off the main resort beach (called the 'front porch') and a number of other stunning private beaches that can be kayaked, sailed or motorboated to within minutes. The people in the resort itself made the stay extremely special. All staff were warm, genuine, professional and generally great people, a real asset. The facilities were very good (pool was clean and lovely but with such an amazing beach right outside the bure...) and the bar/dining area stylish and modern. Bures were spacious tho some looked like they were due a tidy up (due to the recent storms that hit Fiji) and this seemed to be underway when we were there. The food was mostly excellent, there's a large selection for breakfast, several options for lunch and options for a 3 course dinner. The cocktail list is decent and also well made.The spa is right on the beach so you listen to the sound of waves crashing as you get massaged... Yasawa Island resort is not a cheap place to get to and the alcohol/bar bill especially adds up quickly but it's well worth it for a special occasion or that special someone, we would definitely go back!
“The perfect honeymoon”
My wife and I stayed at Yasawa for 5 days for our honeymoon. We could not have chosen a more perfect spot. The resort's location is among the most beautiful spots I have ever seen. Our bure was always kept spotless and completely stocked with whatever we requested, and located just steps from the ocean. We enjoyed stunning sunsets every evening. The staff was second to none -- always smiling, friendly, and attentive. The menu was varied and delicious. The wine list was surprisingly extensive. You must take advantage of the lunch picnics on private beaches -- the experience of nearly complete isolation is not to be missed. Also, we highly recommend the day trip to the Blue Lagoon caves. It's not as scary as it sounds! The view from the lookout is well worth the 15 minute hike. Overall, I cannot more highly recommend this resort. It is 5 star in every way, and we would absolutely return.
“Oasis for romance, tranquility and stress relie”
Great resort with a very attentive and friendly staff. The room was clean, comfortable and had a fantastic view of the ocean. We slept to the sound of crashing waves, and woke up to the same. The beach is extensive, clean and thinly populated. In a week, we did not pass another couple on our walks. The water was warm and we enjoyed frolicking in surf. With no TV......it was great to disconnect from the world and just live in the moment. Utter relaxation. The stress drains with each surge in the surf, right down into the sand. The food was very good, especially the breakfast a la carte and buffet. The hotel grounds were clean and well along the way to recovery after last year's hurricane. Nice grounds. The best thoughts of all go to the staff who really do go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy your stay. The resort is the only one on the island and lives in a symbiotic relationship with the surrounding villages, with villagers representing much of the staff. You detect that they have a sense of ownership in the resort...and it shows. A great place for a quiet, relaxing, romantic getaway.
