My husband and I visited Viwa Island Resort for 7 days in early April 2014 on our honeymoon (I meant to review a little sooner, but I guess I'm still on Fiji Time!). When we chose Viwa Island we had a few criteria in mind... a warm tropical island with a tranquil white sand beach, a secluded place without the... More

We choose Viwa Island resort as one of our honeymoon locations and it did not disappoint! It was paradise. The perfect amount of activities and relaxation! The property is breathtaking, the bure was beautiful and private, and the food was excellent! Everyone on the island was so friendly and helpful! We can't wait to go back! We LOVED it!!

Just a quick note, could you please update the meal prices on the website. We were a little shocked with the $45-50 dinners and $20 desserts. Positives: - Beautiful, large rooms - Very quiet and small resort - Lovely white sandy beach - Very beautiful villages nearby - Very nice nature walk - Very friendly, accommodating staff. The chef was... More

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

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,...
