HIllside Villas vs Beachside Villas

Hi Guys,

Still trying to decide on the honeymoon (hardest thing I've had to do for the whole wedding I'd say - the rest was so easy).

I'm liking Yasawa Island Resort & Vomo Island Resort.

My fiancee really likes the look of the Hillside Villas on Vomo (he thinks it could possibly be a bit more private than a beachside villa where you might have people coming past all the time).

I just want to know the difference between the Hillside & the Beachside Villas? Are they very far from the beach/main resort (is it much of a walk)? Do they still have things like deck chairs or day beds for outdoors relaxing? Is there any other differences between the two villas?

Any advice would be great! I think I'm sorted when it comes to Yasawa - I know exactly what I like there but any other tips you could offer would be great :)

You shouldn't get people coming passed all the time in the beachfront bures they are well spaced and private. To me more preferable than the hillside as you don't have to walk up and down from the beach and facilities. You have your own space out front. Vomo is a wonderful resort. I don't know of Yasawa Island resort so can't comment but Vomo is fantastic.

Both villas are the same, my preference for honeymooners would be hillside. They have great views, very private and most importantly are stand alone. Most the beachfront are duplex and you can hear everything!!!

They are on the hill behind the main restaurant and a 1 minute walk too beachfront, if that! They over look the gardens and tennis courts and a great outlook.

Just don't go school holidays as you will be surrounded by more kids than normal.


Hope that helps

Thanks for the responses!

Neither of you woul have pics of either villa (beachside or hillside) would you? There isn't much on the website & I did notice it doesn't say deck chairs on the hillside but does on the beachside (this is important to me).

Still so confused on yasawa or vomo. Dont know why but this has been the hardest part of the whole wedding! Everything else I've known what I wanted and picked really easily!

Hi Lozzie

Have a look at the reviews, then traveller photos, you can then tick "room/suite" for specific pics
