Otto and Fanny's is not luxurious compared to Fiji resort standards, but that was part of the charm. I stayed in the dorm and only had to share with one other person at the time. I had been staying on another resort on Tavewa and found it hypersocial and crowded. O&F afforded me privacy and Ape and Jimmy were still attentive in a laidback and friendly way.
With only about 5 other bures and the dorm room, I had space to feel like a human being again as opposed to a sardine. It is a family owned business and Jimmy took myself and the other guests staying for a kava night with the rest of the family. The food was wonderful- I ate like a queen! Unlike some on the resorts in Yasawa, you do not have to pay for meals there with accomodation, but really, when the food is this good, you may as well try it for one day.
The snorkelling which I travelled to the Yasawas for was just off the beach and I spent countless hours exploring the waterlife and idled away on the hammocks. It was a piece of paradise that I still hold dear to my heart there.
