I recently returned from Viwa island with friends and we both had the same views of the place. Viwa Island Resort is in desperate need of a change in management ownership. This place is for sale and its very obvious from the penny pinching from the management that they are not going to spend much money to maintain the place... More

I'm going to start this review with the positives of this island resort. It is a beautiful, idyllic location, with beautiful staff, who smile & are so happy to have you as a guest. The bure's are clean, tidy, well appointed & quite private. Access to the beach takes about 30 seconds. The food is lovely, & there is no... More

A truly wonderful resort far, far away from the bustle, stress and noise! The bar was a natural gathering point for guests during the afternoon and evening where everyone was talking to everyone. The staff was incredibly friendly and service-minded and they really made us feel welcome and made ​​an effort in every detail so that we all could enjoy... More

We stayed on VIWA for our honeymoon in February 2014. What a relaxing & enjoyable place to stay. If you’re looking for an island that has no phone reception, lovely staff, excellent food and a good bar tender, then VIWA is a great choice. We were welcomed on the beach with a fresh frangipani lei and coconut to drink during... More

My husband and I visited Viwa on the 1st January 2014 for 7 wonderful nights. This island is so beautiful and quiet and with only 11 bures, it makes it extra special. There is plenty for you to do if you want to or you can just chill out. With the gorgeous beach and clear crystal blue water in front... More

We stayed here over Christmas,- and the island itself is beautiful. The resort is a little sad. Michelle was off on maternity leave and so family members were managing the resort. The local staff were lovely. Really trying to make the trip memorable. And it easily could be. The attention to detail is what is lacking here. And yes, I... More

We recently spent seven fantastic nights at Viwa over the Christmas 2013 period. On arrival we quickly learnt that we were the only guests at the resort. At first this was rather exciting as we were on our honeymoon, then we started to question – Why? It is peak travel period and only the two of us. By the end... More

We are very disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay here at Viwa island Resort and we do acknowledge that we did have a small issue with our desalinisation plant during your stay. However it was management who arranged for a new machine to be brought to the island Christmas eve and installed by contractors on Christmas Day. Unfortunately... More

Went here in September/October 2012. It is a long boat ride to get to this little island in the south pacific but once you do it is amazing. It is VERY secluded. We stayed in Bure #5 that was just a few steps from the beach. Great views on the beach too. The ocean here is crystal clear and soft... More
