Absolutely amazing experience , everything was better than we expected. Very secluded and during our stay only a handfull of other guests, very peaceful and relaxing with water activities to choose. I had the best sleep ever ( the bure is almost on the beach,...More
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Botaira resort. It was fairly quiet due to low season. But we loved having the whole island just to ourselves. My friend and I had a really relaxing time. The beach is very nice. We had a lot of...More

Yiu will nedd to catch the Yasawa Flyer it leaves Port Denarau at 8.30am so you need to be checked in bt no later than 8am. You will have to stay overnight in Nadi. There are people at the airport who can help you wlth this. Just make sure you are up early enought to get to the marina, allow st least 1/2hour to get there. Raffles hotel across from the airport might be good. The lnly other wst go get there is by seaplane but hou have probably left it too latr to do this. You will pay in Fiji dollars. You will get a great exchange rate with US dollars. Probably around F $ 300 return. Per person . Get an early wake up all and arrange transport the night before if you can.

The snorkeling right at front of resort is great in my opinion. At low tide you must access the water via a concrete path made with squares of concrete laid out to past the coral. These concrete squares are VERY slippery! The coral at the resort is not iridescent in colour but lots of fish life! We saw brain coral, clams (bright blue and green inside) and lots of colourful fish. Even snorkelled through a group of squid one day!
We took the boat trip to a nearby channel to snorkel with the Manta Rays and that was magical!
