I stayed two nights at this resort in May this year with my mum and we have to say that this resort offered the best reef we have seen among the islands for snorkelling, we were mindblown! It is very natural and the oceanfront bures were large and nicely decorated, right by the beach. The staff was super friendly too and as it's a family run business very accommodating towards our needs. So if you're after a quite, peaceful holiday and you want to spend a lot of time snorkelling, this is perfect. We do have to say however that in comparison to the other resorts in that price category that the cleanliness could be improved a lot and that in regards to similar meal plans, this one is really far behind. We spoke to the staff about it during our stay, as the value for money is not appropriate. After numerous conversations - and some promises on their behalf that they took back only hours later - they did cook us some different food and it was certainly okay. We didn't let this ruin our stay but it's good for others to be aware of it. When you ask you will get some better meals and we loved that we got fresh coconuts whenever we asked :-) Again, we loved our stay and would definitely come back as the staff were super lovely but it's not a 5/5 due to cleanliness and quality of the meals.

The bures here are large and surround a large grassy area. There are plenty of hammocks but no loungers. The bures at the back are surrounded by flowers. This place has more space than virtually all the other places in the Yasawas. The bathroom area in my bure needed an upodate, but worked fine. You can get over the fringing reef at any time. The coral is nothing special but I did see several sharks and a turtle, which made up! There is a very nice ridge walk (45 mins each way) which you can do witrhout a guide: strongly recommended.The staff were fantastic and the beer reasonably priced. So far, so good. There were only two other people there during my three days... which takes us to a possible reason. The food is overpriced for what you get... plenty of it, but poor compared with Octopus or Barefoot Manta, for example. Coffee was not on offer which is an absolute must. I enjoyed my time here but the price of food is an issue.

My husband and I stayed in the Executive Deluxe bure at Botaira for our honeymoon. We had taken two years to plan our wedding from across the country, had near 200 guests, and were very much looking forward to escaping for a week afterward. From the beginning of our experience, Botaira did not disappoint! Finau helped us to book our time there and transportation to and from Nadi, and was patient as we figured out our exact travel schedule. Once we arrived, there were only a handful of staff onsite since there were not a lot of guests when we stayed. In fact, my husband and I were the only guests at the resort who were not there to volunteer at the neighboring village. We practically had the place to ourselves, and it suited us just fine! The lodging was delightful – big and spacious in the deluxe bure with an open bathroom that still offers privacy. We didn’t see any rodents or bed bugs (not saying it didn’t happen to others, but our trip was pest-free). There were some geckos that made their way into our bure, but that didn’t bother us at all. The food at Botaira is incredible and cooked to perfection. We had to ask Wati, our main contact at the resort, to give us smaller portions because we did not want to waste food. It worked for about a day, and then he told us we were getting full servings regardless because they wanted to make sure we had as much to eat as we wanted. (By the way, Wati is the best!) On our last full day, we were treated to a picnic lunch and a very romantic sunset dinner with lobster and reef fish. I could go on for days about the food – I would probably go back for the menu alone! There was no internet, no tv, and very little technology at the resort. The power is shut off twice a day to conserve, and the water pressure is very low. THIS WAS PERFECT FOR US! We got exactly what we wanted and MORE by staying at Botaira – we were able to disconnect, explore nature, nap when we wanted, write in our travel journals, lay in the hammock, and snorkel every single day out on the reef in front of the resort. It was so laid-back and relaxing, and the staff took care of everything we needed. When we decided to do a scuba excursion, the staff at Botaira arranged the whole thing with a resort on a neighboring island. All we had to do was tell them when we wanted to go diving and they took care of the rest. We also took advantage of the free activities at the resort, like the coconut workshop and the hikes to the island hilltop. The weather forecast called for rain all week, but we only experienced a light misting ONCE after dinner. It was partly cloudy during the week except for one day when the sun was out in full force. My husband and I agreed that we both preferred the clouds – we still got tan without being too hot the whole time! Thank you so much to the entire staff at Botaira for being an absolute pleasure to work with!

Our party of five stayed in the oceanfront bures the second week of August. We knew not to expect flashy accommodations and had a few concerns after viewing some bad reviews but none of our fears materialized. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the beach and home reef one of the best in the Yasawas. Yes, there was a problem with water pressure (none) and the food, althogh mostly good could have been more plentiful as could the supply of juices for drinks though the beer was cold. The bures were kept immaculate though in need of upkeep, I.e. holes in the screens and broken beach furniture. Nevertheless, we all had a great time and hope Botaira continues to rebuild after the cyclone devastation.
