This was our last island and unfortunately was also the worst we visited. The staff seemed very disinterested with everyone there and the main lady who works in the office was very abrupt with you. They made it very obvious that they wanted to close the bar at about 9pm. The room was okay but when climbing up to the... More

We stayed in one of the 2 bed huts for 3 nights. The staff were friendly, especially Waise! The Bula time after tea was great fun and got everyone involved. The older guy behind reception was very rude and blunt and never served with a smile unlike all the other staff. The food was okay but the cake shop down... More

To bad this resort lies so far from Nadi. Positive things was the food, the staff and many other factors as good service. The power runs out everynight at 10PM which was really really bad because it was so hot to sleep. No wifi possibilities...

• The staff was not friendly or welcoming. Me and my four friends felt like we were bothering them by beeing around. • The food was boring and not good. And the portions were soo small. We were hungry most of the day. • They did not have any snack in the bar or anything else to offer. • Breakfast... More

This was our first accomodation on our 7days trip to the Yasawas. Our private room with shower was near the beach. We enjoyed sitting in our small verandah with our duty free gin. Nice food, pleasant atmosphere. Made the trip to the cave: worthwhile.

This lodge is at the top of the Yasswas chain on Nacula island. If you are here you've probably booked via Awesome Adventures (AA) and I believe starting at the top of the island chain and working your way down is the best way to see them. I came here in low season and the resort put us in a... More

Horrendous stay here.. Main member of staff is very rude and overly pushy when it comes to booking activities. As soon as Youve paid they want nothing to do with you. They told me they would send my towel that I left on the island to the boat the next day but of course they didn't. Had geckos and rats... More

In many ways, Nabua Lodge was the best place I had stayed in the Yasawa Islands. It would have been brilliant if not for the mosquitos and a rat I shared my bure with. Don’t get me wrong though, had I brought mosquito repellent I would have been fine as the rat only wanted my biscuits, not me. The grounds... More

I stayed at Nabua Lodge for 2 nights recently and throughly enjoyed my stay. The staff could not have done enough for us. We were greeted by a small speed boat and taken into the island. We were given lunch straight away. The food was very yummy and there was always enough of it. On one of the days we... More

The staff was really unavailable and when asked a question dismissive and unresponsive. Not personable like the Fijians are known to be. It seemed they were more interested in spending their time hanging out with villagers then caring at all about their guests. Food was for the most part inedible. I am a 1 star traveler and have no problem... More
