Wonderful place, very relaxed. Off the road, beach side with jungle in the back. The resort is not very big, what makes it very nice. Nice pool area. Panorama rooms really nice view. Rooms were nice, food was great. As a big surprise they made us a romantic diner for our honeymoon, very nice! Diving was very professional, new gear,... More

Waidroka (meaning “fresh water” in Fijian) Bay Resort is an idyllic place to stay with a beautiful view of the azure Fijian ocean stretching to the white wave capped outer reef. I stayed in a mid-priced Burre (number 2), which is a detached wooden cabin and was comfortable with a double bed, sofa and work table. Beach towels are supplied.... More

I have been to 8 different resorts in Fiji and this is by far my favourite... On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff. The resort is small and family orientated. We had a family style dinner, where everyone sat together, this was nice as everyone spoke about their day and what they wanted to do the next day. Kirsti,... More

My husband and I stayed here in August, and after reading the reviews, I had hoped it would be a good experience. Instead it was really disappointing. The room was very, very basic, and there was not way to use the AC without shuttering the place, so no light. The food was okay, but the lack of flexibility in dinner... More

I recently had the pleasure of accompanying a group of 17 Teenagers on an Adventure and Diving Holiday to Fiji as their Divemaster and Tour Leader.

This place is overpriced: $95 per person for a 10 minute boat ride to the nearby surf breaks is ridiculous (it includes a "surf guide", which in reality is less of a guide than just another surfer in the water, which matters if you have beginners in your group). The food is too expensive for its quality, and vegetarians need... More

Waidroka was just what our family needed. My husband surfed, the kids paddle boarded and swam, I relaxed. Add in snorkelling and kayaking. The staff were amazing...kind, caring, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. What more could you want?
