This was our second visit to Viwa Island and once again it was a fantastic holiday. Michelle , her staff including Caroline the chef ensured we were not disappointed. Earlier reviews criticising the resort are unfounded in our opinion. We had plenty to eat, there were plenty of beach chairs to go around ( and the resort was close to... More

We've been to various parts of Fiji many times but this was our first time in the Yasawas. And we weren't disappointed. What a gorgeous part of paradise. After a warm welcome from the owners, Michelle and her mum Desiree, we were shown to our charming and well appointed bure (No. 1), with 2 comfy king size beds to choose... More

Arrived at Viwa by Seaplane to be met by flowers and beautiful Island music. Flying in over the reef and onto the beach was an experience in itself. This is a place to relax and get into Fijian time before you even unpack. The Bures are well appointed with Pure Fiji products provided in the bathrooms and restocked daily. Fresh... More

We recently spent 12 nights at Viwa Island to get away for a break and just relax without heaps of people around nor children. We flew out via seaplane and back on chopper which was worth every cent. Flight out was fantastic landing in lagoon and onto beach with a very warm Fiji welcome. Bure was very good with an... More

What a beautiful island, inhabited by absolutely wonderful people. Such a relaxed atmosphere with not a care in the world. We enjoyed our week at Viwa only due to the marvelous staff. Management might as well have not been there as there was no contact at all. If you are trying to lose weight this is the venue for you.... More

Arriving at the island we were expecting a traditional Fijian welcome, but no welcome to be had. Foot massage on arrival? nope the lady who does the massage was... More

Staff were great. Very friendly and wanted you to enjoy their country. Food was also great and I enjoyed the after dinner activities run by the staff to help guests to mingle. However there was room for improvement. The day we organised to go snorkeling to a particular destination, which required a boat, they ran out of gear and so... More

We would like to apologize for your snorkel trip being cancelled on the day you arrived. Snorkeling equipment is on hire to our guests and it seems the issue was, that equipment had not been washed and ready for hire at the time you had arrived on the island, which would explain why the following day you received your equipment,...

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

It is extremely disappointing to hear that you and your friends did not enjoy your stay here at Viwa Island Resort. Our main facility is an open area and was designed this way so guests could enjoy the beautiful sea breezes that frequent the area, so most of the time ceiling fans are not necessary and are perceived to do...

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.
