I do believe it’s important to know what you are booking, going to Yasawa Island Resort.
This is the only resort on the island, with only 18 villas in vast and lush lands. This means that you will not only have the long beach in front of the resort more or less to yourself, but also the rest of the beautiful beaches with well perserved corals along the 22 kilometers long island.
Waters are turquose and crystal clear. Perfect foe snorkelling.
It’s like being a luxury version of Robinson Crusoe; wild, private and beautiful with a lovely interaction with the ever so friendly staff, most of them from the closest village.
Villas are basic and could do with some maintenance, but very spacious. There are fans, but only AC above the bed. If you want the bling-bling show off kind of villas, go somewhere else. But if you feel like relaxing in genuine village-like surroundings where all villas have perfect sea views, Kasawa resort is a very good choice. This view is shared with the high level of repeat guests, who love the beauty of the surrounding gardens and sea.
The Spa is a beautiful haven with skilled therapists and treatment beds with a lovely breeze from the sea.
Excursions to the caves, the local village school and picknicks to deserted beaches are relatively inexpensive and good fun.
Breakfast is really good, with a broad choice and fine flavours. The only area - apart the need for some maintenance in a few villas - would be food and beverage, which does not really live up to expectations of a high end resort. Desserts, yes, but not all the main courses we tried. Nor drinks from the bar, apart from smoothies and fruit juices.
But all in all, Yasawa resort is a lovely haven and I would love to go back again.
