This has included installing air con into the renovated rooms, a new bright paint job and interior make over. The rooms are only small and quite poky, however a renovation has clearly given them a new... More

The resort is undergoing renovation and the bures were brand new with a fabulous view of the beach and sea, wooden deckchairs with comfortable cushioned toppers and our favourite bit, an outside shower. The beach... More

Throughout our whole stay there were never more than 8 people at the resort. This meant we had the beach and the most perfect sunsets to ourselves!! Throughout our entire... More

Leaving the yasawa flyer you are just stunned by the beautiful bay...once you get to the resort you see why you are the only one to go there, while everyone is being brought to the blue lagoon resort...after experiencing the staff (especially the "tour guide/host/activity guide") you are left with very mixed feelings...it is hard to say why, but at...

I joined tripadvisor for the sole purpose of raving about this accommodation! thank you to the positive reviews before mine that encouraged me to stay here, despite lonely planet's vague and dissuading description (to be fair, two years old).

This resort is located on a beautiful beach with stunning views back across the reef. We had a wonderful friendly reception from the staff who sang a welcoming song accompanied by guitar. As is usual from this part of the world, all the staff were friendly and helpful. That's the positive side of Oarsmans Bay. I'm afraid there really wasn't... More

We had a fabulous stay at Oarsman’s in August 2015. I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and had a decent expectation.
