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...

Arrived here very sick from some dodgy food at another island and staff took one look at me and put me straight into private room even though I had paid for a dorm. Staff are so friendly and could not have done enough for me! They brought me all my meals in bed as I was very sick. Nicest people...

Staying in Wayalailai is a must do experience when hopping around the Yasawas. Staff were excellent to my girlfriend who was feeling unwell on our arrival. Really great experience, ate some traditional food they cooked in an underground bbq took part in a Kava ceremony. I seen a few of these ceremonies but this was the first real one wear...

We had no running water while we were there which was frustrating at times. No internet but it was nice to disconnect from the world. Very chilled and spent most of my time in a hammock. Sunset walk is a MUST with a great tour guide Matthew. We also did the sunrise tour with him which was also pretty beautiful....

This was the second to last stop on our 7 day trip to Fiji. These guys couldn't have been more friendly, completely village run, Waya Lailai is a lovely spot. Sarah allocated us the Bures as another group wanted the dorms. The night's entertainment was fun, and included a song from the staff which our students replied to with our...

I fell in love with the environment, the white sandy beach, the people. It was a great experience to stay here. You can do whatever you like, whether just sunbathing, swimming, hiking, resting in a hammock or even sleep all day nobody's gonna bother you. Very peaceful. What was interesting was the dinner, where the guests were called and gathered...
