This was our first accomodation on our 7days trip to the Yasawas. Our private room with shower was near the beach. We enjoyed sitting in our small verandah with our duty free gin. Nice food, pleasant atmosphere. Made the trip to the cave: worthwhile.

This lodge is at the top of the Yasswas chain on Nacula island. If you are here you've probably booked via Awesome Adventures (AA) and I believe starting at the top of the island chain and working your way down is the best way to see them. I came here in low season and the resort put us in a... More

Horrendous stay here.. Main member of staff is very rude and overly pushy when it comes to booking activities. As soon as Youve paid they want nothing to do with you. They told me they would send my towel that I left on the island to the boat the next day but of course they didn't. Had geckos and rats... More

In many ways, Nabua Lodge was the best place I had stayed in the Yasawa Islands. It would have been brilliant if not for the mosquitos and a rat I shared my bure with. Don’t get me wrong though, had I brought mosquito repellent I would have been fine as the rat only wanted my biscuits, not me. The grounds... More

I stayed at Nabua Lodge for 2 nights recently and throughly enjoyed my stay. The staff could not have done enough for us. We were greeted by a small speed boat and taken into the island. We were given lunch straight away. The food was very yummy and there was always enough of it. On one of the days we... More

The staff was really unavailable and when asked a question dismissive and unresponsive. Not personable like the Fijians are known to be. It seemed they were more interested in spending their time hanging out with villagers then caring at all about their guests. Food was for the most part inedible. I am a 1 star traveler and have no problem... More

This was our first of three islands. You should know, that this is far from luxurious. But, it is an 1 coconut accomadation. It is clean enough, but the bathroom is not in good condition. (I've seen wose though). The beds are okey, and the lodges had a good size! My favorite thing here though, was the employes, so helpfull... More

It was my first accommodation on Fiji which I booked blindly and have to say that I was overwhelmed. The island is wonderful, the accommodation in a Fiji style is fabulous, the food was great and the personnel was so nice and always smiling. For me it was a paradise and I would repeat my staying straight away.

POOR THEFT POOR THEFT POOR THEFT POOR THEFT I have visited almost all of the Yasawa Islands over two visits to the area and Nabua Lodge is by far the worst.
