Bula Helena and Demo, It was great to have you guys hanging with us in Viwa for a few days. We are sure we all wish it could have been longer. We take great pride in the fact that there are no "hidden charges" and the only activities you have to pay for are scuba diving and deep sea fishing.... More

I am not overly sure I can do justice to this absolute ‘Heaven on Earth’ holiday destination in a simple and short forum review but I will try to give the reader just some idea of the magic that is the Viwa Island Resort in Fiji. Imagine a pristine, pure white, sandy beach nestled within a fully protected South Pacific... More

VIWA is a truly remarkable spot in the Yasawas. Sheung, Louise, Roy, Akulia and all the staff really make this place something special and memorable. The food and bures were fantastic; so was the Fijian music and song. The snorkelling was special too. Thanks again for the great moments celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary: the cake, the singing and beachside... More

We visited Viwa Island to celebrate our honeymoon and we believe we selected the best place to toast this special event. We spent 6 days in this wonderful hotel and we would readily extend our stay if circumstances permitted. We are rather fastidious travelers with sufficient experience with tropical islands so it is tough to impress us, but these guys... More

My stay at the Viwa Island Resort has been amazing. The staff are friendly and speak English which is good for anyone who doesn't speak Fijian and the owners can help translate our requirements to the staff if you don't speak English. The activities are amazing and they are guided by locals from the island and you can visit two... More
