The resort itself is home to no fewer than 11 private beaches, which gleam in iridescent shades of aquamarine, pearl white and jade blue. The calm, crystalline waters are one of the undeniable draws of a stay on Yasawa Island, whether you choose to traverse these by kayak, paddle board, catamaran or delve beneath the surface on a snorkelling or scuba diving adventure in search of the dazzling array of marine life to be found in the surrounding coral reefs. A beautifully laidback and intimate feel pervades the resort, where traditionally designed beach bungalows offer all modern luxuries, but where the breathtaking ocean views take centre stage.
A clutch of eighteen luxurious bungalows (or bures) are scattered along the beachfront, shaded by swaying palms and just steps from the pearl-white sands. All boast crisp linens, indoor and outdoor showers, and generous private decks where you can recline and absorb the sights and sounds of the Pacific Ocean. In addition to six classic Bure Suites, a collection of ten freestanding Deluxe Beachfront Bures offer enhanced living space and expansive ocean-facing decks with day beds and magnificent views. A Two Bedroom Bure lends itself to older families two couples travelling together, while a Honeymoon Bure provides the perfect romantic hideaway.
Yasawa Island Resort opens its doors to those travelling with children under the age of 15 at certain times of year only – namely the Christmas and New Year period, Easter, and selected weeks in July, September and October. The resort’s Two Bedroom Bure is the perfect spot for those seeking a self-contained family stay, with two King-size rooms flanking a generous indoor living space, looking out to a panoramic outdoor deck.
WEDDINGS & HONEYMOONS
The team at Yasawa are well-versed in taking care of all the arrangements for your special day, where you can exchange your vows on a deserted white-sand beach, perhaps heralding in your celebrations with a guard of Fijian warriors or a performance by the choir of Bukama Village. The resort’s Honeymoon Bure is in a league of its own. Nestled in a blissfully secluded spot at the end of a deserted beach, this impossibly romantic retreat boasts its own private terrace and lap pool looking out to the endless Pacific waters.
