Staying in Wayalailai is a must do experience when hopping around the Yasawas. Staff were excellent to my girlfriend who was feeling unwell on our arrival. Really great experience, ate some traditional food they cooked in an underground bbq took part in a Kava ceremony. I seen a few of these ceremonies but this was the first real one wear... More

We had no running water while we were there which was frustrating at times. No internet but it was nice to disconnect from the world. Very chilled and spent most of my time in a hammock. Sunset walk is a MUST with a great tour guide Matthew. We also did the sunrise tour with him which was also pretty beautiful.... More

This was the second to last stop on our 7 day trip to Fiji. These guys couldn't have been more friendly, completely village run, Waya Lailai is a lovely spot. Sarah allocated us the Bures as another group wanted the dorms. The night's entertainment was fun, and included a song from the staff which our students replied to with our... More

I fell in love with the environment, the white sandy beach, the people. It was a great experience to stay here. You can do whatever you like, whether just sunbathing, swimming, hiking, resting in a hammock or even sleep all day nobody's gonna bother you. Very peaceful. What was interesting was the dinner, where the guests were called and gathered... More

I stayed in Bure 2 for 4 nights. Spacious, clean and comfortable accommodation. Food was plentiful and delicious. If you can bring bottled water from the mainland as it can be quite expensive to buy it on the islands. Beautiful beach and views, the sunrise walk to the summit was worth it. Lots of activities available, but you also have... More

Oh, what a missed opportunity. This place is the only village-owned and village-run resort in the Yasawas. This is itself is a great drive for people like us to choose it over foreign-owned resorts, but unfortunately it doesn't deliver on the expectations (and on the hefty bill). The staff looks quite disengaged and not really interested in having tourists there.... More

This was my first experience of island life, and I really liked it here. Staff sing to you on arrival/departure and at mealtimes, and are all super friendly. Facilities were basic, but all you need. Dorm was huge, with no mosquito nets, and visitors like rats and giant spiders and moths were frequent :-O Bathrooms were so old and rundown,... More

We had the best time staying at Waya Lailai Resort! We loved it so much that after staying 2 nights in another resort on another island (which was very fancy) we decided to cancel the rest of our bookings in other places to come back to Waya Lailai Resort and finish our trip there! We spent 10 nights there! If... More

Stayed at wayalailai for 2 nights and it was my first island stop. Positives: - beautiful location looking out on to the sea and although so windy when we were there we couldn't lie on the sand. - sunset hike was breath taking, although not sure why we payed $20 for it, since not much guidance shown. - food compared...

From the minute you step off the boat to the welcome song you know this place is going to be amazing. The landscape of the mountain is incredible and views out to see equally beaut. We stayed in the 1 coconut lodge room which was lovely. We did not have a key and was as safe as houses. The water... More
