The island of Waya Lailai has the feeling of being very wild and authentic. It's a resort owned by the people on the island, and it shines through for both good and bad. The good is that it's different from the other resorts in the way that the people who work there are just ordinary islanders. The bad is that... More

I'm reluctant to refer to those who set up meals or provide tours at Waya Lai Lai as "staff." Being at Waya Lai Lai feels more like you've joined a family. While a little more basic than other experiences available in the Yasawa chain, Waya Lai Lai was also my favorite. The burres were clean, the meals prompt, the snorkeling... More

Lets face it, its not often you get to stay with Fijian villagers in their own resort. This resort was built in 1984 and consists of some lovely thatched bures and a longer 'motel' style building (which used to be their school) but which now houses the dorm and the twin style rooms. Beautifully located and smartly built into the... More

Myself and my fiance were travelling on the bula combo pass and had our last stop here. It's a Fijian community owned resort and unlike a lot of the other resorts that have foreign owners and money invested in them. This means it's not as fancy as the other Islands, but the rooms are spacious and the facilities are good.... More

Wayalailai is warm, friendly and real. The facilities are basic but no one should go to a remote island and expect 24 hr electricity and unlimited water. The resort was doing its best despite a 9 month drought. Our thatched bure was adorable and the food was tasty and filling. And when my daughter fussed about the sauce on the... More

I can't believe the wimps who travel these days. I've just been reading reviews from a guy who was transferred from the Yasawa Flyer to Wayalailai by the island boat (wooden with outboard motor) and he was shocked by the waves hitting the side of the boat. Poor love - it must have been a horrendous few hundred metres and... More

We stayed here only one night. Without asking nothing they downgrade our stay from bure to lodge only because the bure were full, no hot water and missing tools from the shower lodge shower. The place is not bad but is was not the best experience. The food is really good, the only one of the three resorts visited, they... More

Our boat transfer from the Yasawa Flyer in stormy seas was extremely scary, with water spraying all 8 or 9 of us as as we knelt with our luggage in the little open boat as it pounded into the waves and our boatmen howled with laughter. I would prefer not to repeat that experience. Our bure was acceptable and cofmortable,... More

We stayed here only for one night, but to be honest I didn't really sleep there... Our bed in a lodge was full of bed bugs ! We took a picture of one of them and tried to kill as much as we can. I couldn't sleep because of allergies. The morning after, we advised the responsable for that, and... More
