With their own private plane pickup from Nausori or Nadi, this resort is 10 minutes by plane form Nausori airport. The view of the island from the air is amazing and when u on ground the ride and scenery starts to get even better. You arrive at reception welcomed by friendly staff with the welcome song. check in and entry to the room is hassle free. The rooms are private, spacious and outdoor shower like having a bath in the forest. The lawn from the room to the beach gives lots of private space and kids play area. White sandy beach in a marine protected reef area is amazing. U wake to to see birds calling, waves hitting the shore and turtles swimming nearby. The food is something to look forward to. Every meal is a piece of art, Amazing and delicious every time with surprise menu everyday, with every meal. The Mexican themed dinning with blend of Fijian culture makes dining an experience on its own. This is the only island that has deer so you get treated to deer meat as well, and that's an experience to look forward to. The staff are amazing and helpful every time even in this difficult times. The GM and head chef are best we have seen in Fiji and with the team this is a 5 star place.

Wow!! Where do I even begin to explain what a wonderful experience Wakaya had offered to our group.. We were the first local group to have visited the Wakaya Spa and Club and our whole trip was just so incredible.. From the beauty of the island to the amazing food and down to the hospitality of the staff - we enjoyed everything and every moment.. Monika, Ledua, Nina, Henry Just to name a few provided an exceptional service to us locals and treated is just like any one of their usual clientele who are mostly millionaires and celebrities.. highly recommended!!

Love your locals just got real at Wakaya. From the plane trip to the boat ride, Wakaya never ceased to amaze me. The service and hospitality is unmatched in Fiji. Highly recommended for a relaxing, laid-back vacation/staycation.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left - nothing was too much. Our first visit to Wakaya was simply perfection. We were celebrating my birthday and our recent move to Fiji - Wakaya did not disappoint. The private plane journey from Suva was seamless and efficient. We were greeted with an amazing Bula welcome then whisked off for breakfast and straight into relaxing beach side. Our bure was wonderful and large, with sweeping views of the ocean and our own hammock to enjoy. We snorkelled, had a hugely successful day of tuna fishing, ate the most divine food and totally unwound. Every meal was outstanding - no easy thing in Fiji. Fresh, full of flavour and creative. I requested all the wonderful recipes to take home. The service was exactly what you would expect and more when you are staying at this type of luxury escape. We were also very lucky to have the island to ourselves - 4 days of absolute heaven. Monika, Lendua and Henry made our time on the island incredibly special and we simply can not wait to return.

Having traveled to over 20 countries and staying at memorable places, nothing in our years of travel can begin to compare to the experience we had at Wakaya. Our bungalow on the beach matched every picture in a dream travel guide. It was clean, tasteful and felt exotic. The furniture looked like it hadn't ever been sat on. The bed was super comfortable, and from through the canopy bed you could see the beach and the ocean. The beach had beautiful sand and crystal clear water. The open air dining room was the ultimate Fiji experience. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were perfection. Every meal was a gourmet experience with a Fiji flare. We had already tried a famous Fiji barbecue before arriving at the resort, and we thought we wouldn't order it again (it was a little dry), but when we arrived at Wakaya, we were told that their food was like no other. Let me just say, it was so much better. We had the barbecue for our anniversary dinner. On that evening, they had planned on their own to set a table on the beach with beautiful lanterns hanging in the trees, tiki torches lining the beach, and a huge bonfire just for us. They baked us a special anniversary cake and several came out to sing a couple songs for us. The evening lasted for hours and we will never forget it...maybe the finest evening of our lives The staff want to make you feel like you're there on a beautiful island all by yourself, so they really try to respect privacy. But if you let them know that you would like to engage them, they are wonderful and interesting conversationalists...all while continuing to respect your privacy. We felt like we were treated like royalty. One day they set up a beautiful lunch on a private beach. They brought out the beautiful drinks and fantastic food and the table setting was laid out under a gazebo. They set up an outdoor covered lounge area with a large cushion to sit on and tons of pillows. Two hammocks were ready for us and someone stood off a ways to make sure that if we wanted snorkels or paddle boards or kayaks, they were available upon our request. The coral reef there was beautiful and there were lots of sea turtles in that area. One day we took them up on the offer to take the boat out to one of the reefs. I have had the opportunity to snorkel in the Red Sea on the Sinai Peninsula. I never thought I would see water that clear and a reef as beautiful as that, but Wakaya offered something to match it. On Sunday morning we went to the church to join their church service. The pastor was gracious, the people were happy and kind, and the children were a joy to be with. What a beautiful service! I've been many places, and without a doubt, Wakaya is the best and most beautiful place my wife and I have ever stayed. We can't stop thinking about how we can get back there and how soon we can make it happen. To everyone who works there and might read this, we think of you all often. Thank you so much for being the wonderful people you are and how much you made us feel at home.

It was our first visit to Fiji so not so sure what to expect and having paid a lot of money for our private island resort our hopes were high. We were not disappointed. From our arrival everyone was warm and friendly and the service was fantastic. Special mention goes to Lendua, Waisake, Nina, Monika and Henry! The hotel and island are kept fantastically natural and clean with local people employed. The food was amazing and we tasted things we’ve never had before. I went fishing one day and caught a few barracuda all of which went to the island community. If you want a special private holiday and looked after impeccably, then this is THE place to visit. With a maximum of 20 guests you are never going to be crowded and with the spa and lots of water sports to keep you occupied this makes for a great holiday choice! From the moment you arrive and then leave to hotel staff singing hello/ farewell to you it all makes for a very special private island experience not to missed.

We have just returned from the Wakaya Club and want to report that it is in tip top shape after an extensive rebuilding and refurbishing of bures (rooms), grounds and landscape. Even the professional crochet court had a new grass surface. We have stayed here more than a dozen times over 25 years and it never disappoints. For divers it is nirvana! The management is caring and competent; the Fijian staff is fabulous; the food couldn't be better, with lots of freshly-caught fish and produce from the island's gardens. Treat yourself to a slice of Heaven and enjoy Wakaya!

On a trip to Australia, our travel agent suggested we fly to and stay at the Wakaya Club & Spa on the island of Wakaya. We flew from Brisbane to Suva and caught a small prop place to Wakaya. We landed on a small grass runway where we could see both sides of the island and were greeted with tropical drinks by the Wakaya staff when we disembarked. It was a scene right out of the TV series "Fantasy Island!" We were taken to the resort which is the only one on the island and the concierge said that he knew we must be hungry since we had not had lunch as yet. He said he had fresh cajun tuna stake and a salad which was PERFECT and asked for our beverage preferences. I looked at the wine list and they had Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc (We preferred that to beer). When we got to our bure (our 1200 sq. ft. room on the grounds by the ocean) we said we would prefer Cloudy Bay wine to the beer. We walked out to the beach and when returned, they had already replaced the beer with the great wine. I off-shore fished with their pastry chef each morning and caught yellowfin tuna and wahoo. We also scuba dove with one day on a spectacular wall dive. We have been to great hotels around the world and the Wakaya Club is the quintessential place for luxury customer service and first-class amenities. We also had a spectacular 2 hours at their spa with great massages and steam bath. Lastly, on your final day they take you to the south end of the island with a cooler willed with lobster, tuna poke, wine and a radio and leave. You are the only people within a square mile and we rollicked, snorkeled on the reef and had a blast. 3 hours later we radioed them and them came to pick us up. We cried when we had to leave Wakaya, but will definitely return one day soon. Wakaya has been remodeled after Hurricane Winston and the pictures show that it is even more spectacular.

If you're looking for a private island getaway than Wakaya Private Resort is the place to spend it! We stayed in one of the villas which had the most amazing island sunset. The food was absolutely amazing, and the chefs cook some amazing vegan meals! The island has heaps of activities such as Surfing the reef, which apparently can get up to 7ft but we surfed some fun 1-2ft waves all afternoon, Snorkeling was awesome and they also have diving, standup paddle, kayaking to name a few. Or you can relax by the beach in the hammock and pool area. In summary, you will have an amazing time on the island with the friendliest staff.

It is hard to find the right words to describe this true slice of paradise!! Incredibly friendly staff, beginning with Monica who welcomed us extremely friendly and warm as well as Taito who served us in the best way possible and also all other staff! We felt so welcome and were truly impressed about the professionalism and the friendliness of everyone! Beaches: just incredible, not sure if we saw other beaches like that before. Crystal clear turquoise water, white sandy beaches, no garbage nor plastic, all super clean and just a dream. Pool: perfect! Diving: Meli the guide was very professional and super friendly, boat and equipment high class and the diving itself also pretty good Bures are amazing and you don't miss anything. We like to recommend this hotel to everyone and thank to all staff for making our stay so wonderful!
