We did a tour around the Yasawas stopping at a variety of different budget ‘resorts’. Wayalailai was definitely the pick of the bunch for us. The staff were great and the walk to the summit was the highlight for my son and my wife. If the shark feeding is on – do it! It’s a very cool experience to be...

We stayed here for 2 nights during our island hopping tour! It's very Fijian, clean, friendly and basic. 'It does what it says on the tin!' Food is ok, my partner is very picky but managed to find things to eat. The shark snorkel trip was our favourite trip we went on. The rooms need a bit of tlc, we...

Been to a few islands in the jasawas and the mamanucas (naviti, bounty, mana and wayalailai) and this was by far the best place. The food was outstanding, the people were uberfriendly and it really felt like being in paradise. The activities were awesome, you have to do the sunrise hike up to the mountain for stunning views.. Fantastic place.....

The resort is amazing, different types of accomodation depending on budget. We stayed at Lodge as we're travelling as couple. It was a basic accomodation but what else we needed? The food was better than we're expecting, it was buffet type, and it was soooo yummy, we always got second round. Many activities to do. My boyfriend did the scuba...

this resort is lovely, run by a local family for the benefit of the village, we really felt immersed into Fijian life. We took part in a local cava ceremony and met the village chief, experienced lovo earth over cooking and just kicked back and relaxed. We stayed in Bure 6 which was overlooking the ocean- what amazing sunrises would...

Where to even begin... Me and my fiancé visited this resort last week and had the worst experience of our year traveling so far. To start with, as we sat down for lunch when we first got there a man who was living at the resort came over and told us not to use the fan on our wall at...

My boyfriend and I had planned to stay here for 4 nights after hearing good things about it from a couple of other backpackers we had met in the Yasawas. When we first arrived the staff seemed friendly and the beach was okay but the resort had a nice village feeling. However, when we were shown to our bure we...

A friend and I took our two teens and we all loved our stay here. We had a bure which was clean and tidy ( see photo). The amenities were basic but the location and beach are outstanding. Meals were healthy and plentiful, we had bought our own smacks for in between times which was good as dinner wasn't til...

First of all I really do not like to do bad recommendations at all but in this case I see it more than necessary. Even though for the second night my friend and I got an upgrade from the 16 people (wasn't completely filled but still) dorm to the double bed, people were extremely money focused here. I totally get...

This island is a great place to visit if you want to meet the locals. Everyone was friendly and wanted to know a bit about you. We had young kids on the beach making sand castles with our family. When went for a walk along the beach and the local village invited us in and everyone wanted to talk. The...

“The front row of the oceanview bures are well worth it. Ours, the one on the far end was the nicest.”
  • Amazing view from the room
  • View from outside the room
  • The room was spacious, with a king size bed, a single bed, a couch, two chairs and a table
