Viwa island resort info

Hello all,

For our first trip to Fiji, my wife and I are planning on spending 7 nights at Viwa either late November or early December. Just wondering what the weather is likely to be like? Will we need any warm clothing for the evenings, or is it warm day and night?

Also, does anyone have any recommendations for somewhere to spend the night in Nadi, both before and after our stay in Viwa? Somewhere that is accessible (with transfers?) to the airport and marina where we will catch the Yasawa flyer to Viwa? We don’t need anything luxurious in Nadi, just smething clean and comfortable for spending the night.

Thanks in advance for any help

Know November and December are during the rainy/cyclone season. Viwa is in the drier region, so tends to get less rain. Unfortunately, the weather can't be predicted our guaranteed. Won't need warm clothing. It was hot and humid during our stay in December several years ago. There were tropical downpours usually in the afternoon. One night we watched a spectacular thunderstorm with lightening from our deck. It lasted several hours. It was so strong that it knocked frigate birds out of the sky.

The following link has pictures of our vacation to Viwa. Will give you an idea of bures, resort grounds, pool, tours, etc.


Raffles across from the airport is popular for overnight stays. Takes about a 1/2 to get to Denarau by cab. Cost is around 25FD. Be sure to confirm the price before getting in. Will need Fijian cash.


Recommend purchasing alcohol at the duty free shop in the airport in Nadi for having drinks in your bure. Will help keep the price down. If you prefer a certain brand, you might take the amount allowed by customs in your checked luggage. The following has has other suggestions of what to take with you:

The weather will be warm day and night. We stayed at Viwa and really enjoyed it. Before and after you could stay the The Terraces which are apartments across from the marina, a 5 min walk
