We stayed on Kuata for 2 nights using our Bula Pass and it really was amazing. From the second we arrived the staff couldn't of done more for us, we even got a welcome dance on the beach!! We stayed in the Beach Dorm which was ideal for us, and a lot nicer (and cleaner) than accommodation on other islands... More

Although the private room was nice, clean and modern, it was under furnished with only a bed in it. There wasn't even a small table to put your things on so we had to place everything on the floor. In the bathroom, the shower was barely more than a trickle and the tap wouldn't turn off properly - not what... More

Vinaka Kuata! Myself and partner spent 5 wonderful days on this paradise island. We did the Bula Combo pass and struck gold here! Everyone was so welcoming, nice and always smiling and laughing! Plenty of activities to take part in, from swimming with sharks (100% recommend) to visiting a local school and hiking to the incredible sun set lookout. Meal... More

We cannot understand all the good recommendations for this hotel. The island is not a south sea dream at all. In comparison to the other Yasawa islands this is the most unattractive one regarding the beaches, landscape and staff. Food was served only at specific times and in limited amounts. We were still hungry after the meals. If you come... More

What to say about Kuata? An amazing island in the middle of Fiji, perfect for couples but also for young people who wants a bit time for relaxing. The staff is unbelievable friendly and in a few days or even hours they already become your family. Its everything very simple, but clean and organized. The view is amazing, and they... More

I arrived at Kuata Island on the 28th of December 2014. Catching the ferry from the mainland and arriving at Kuata you are greeted by a little boat that picks you up off the ferry just off the island. The people are very friendly and know your name. Once you get on the boat and head over to the island,... More
