Yasawa Island Resort & Spa, Fiji
The untouched islands of Fiji’s Yasawa archipelago are the most archetypal of the South Pacific. Remote, unspoiled and strung out like blue and green beads amongst pristine reefs, these islands are fringed by long stretches of powdery white sand beaches and azure seas. Six main islands and numerous smaller islets stretch north-east for more than 50 miles. Volcanic in origin with soaring mountainous peaks, these quintessential paradise islands are striking. The Yasawas were sighted by Captain Bligh in May 1789, a few days after he began his legendary voyage postmutiny. For the most part, the Yasawas were of little interest to European traders or settlers, and for many years remained one of the most isolated parts of Fiji. Due to their remote location,Yasawans are more traditional than other Fijians, making this region a very special place. Yasawa Island is the main and most northerly island in the group. Just 22kms long and less than 1km wide, this slice of paradise is reached via a scenic 35 minute light aircraft flight from Nadi.
Yasawa Island Resort & Spa
Your castaway refuge is one of 18 spacious thatched Bures, designed in a contemporary yet traditional Fijian style,sitting right on the astonishing beach. Picture this: swinging in your hammock, strung between two palms, cooled bythe gentle sea breeze…the makings of a lifetime memory! Hopeless romantics will love Yasawa’s honeymoon suite -‘Lomalagi’ - serenely secluded at the far end of the beach with its own horizon pool.
The island boasts 11 deserted, white sand beaches - including ‘Paradise’ and ‘Lovers’! Equipped with a gourmet picnic, cooling drinks and a sunshade, hop on a boat and be whisked to your private utopia for an unforgettable day! At Yasawa, all meals are included, with a natural focus on freshly caught fish and seafood – the local villagers are great fishermen, and their catch of the day is a highlight at mealtimes. Savour a traditional Fijian feast – a ‘Lovo’ –served up with a ‘Meke’ performance of Fijian song and dance, and washed down with a cup of kava. An acquired taste, this traditional drink is made from the roots of a pepper plant.
Swim, dive, kayak, visit the local villages and meander along tracks and unpaved roads into the native bush. Join a trip to the magnificent Blue Lagoon Caves, made famous in the Brooke Shields shipwreck movie. And when a musclemelting massage beckons, stroll along the beach to the Spa where the signature massage, the Baravi Rhythm, is performed by two therapists, working to the tempo of the waves. There are 15 words for ‘heaven’ in Fijian, little wonder that Yasawa is the first!

Whilst having plenty of fun with the fantastic team of Fijian carers, the young explorers and adventurers learn about their incredible natural surroundings and the local culture. Rather than using modern toys and video games for entertainment, daily activities are tailored around the various ages and interests of the children attending the club each day - ranging from beach walks, nature talks, sea discovery and visits to the local village, home to Yasawa's friendly team of staff. Delicious meals and snacks are also served. Families are welcome to dine together in the resort's main dining area whilst respecting the evening ambience and enjoyment of fellow guests.
