Take a trip to Heaven by staying at Yasawa Island Resort & Spa

By Akuila Batiweti Posted 10 Nov 2014

Did you know that there are 15 different ways to say ‘Heaven’ in the Fijian language? It’s a fact that is hardly surprising given that the stunning archipelago is a tropical paradise filled with white, sandy beaches, swaying palms and crystal clear waters. Yet, nowhere in Fiji is heaven more apparent, than on the Yasawa Islands. In fact, one of those very Fijian words for ‘Heaven’ is ‘Yasawa’.

It is this fortuitous name that the Yasawa Island’s premier hotel, Yasawa Island Resort & Spa, delivers to its guests. Winner of the TripAdvisor 2014 ‘Traveller’s Choice” award in the small luxury hotel category, the Resort is the quintessential example of beauty in an untouched paradise and perfect if you’re looking to be spirited away into a pristine tropical paradise.

Intimate and secluded

Privacy and exclusivity are what sets the Yasawa Island Resort and Spa apart from many other resorts in the ‘heavenly’ islands and indeed, Fiji. There are no other resorts nearby, no traffic and no televisions; there is only the sounds of the palm trees swaying and the ocean lapping a stone’s throw from your private villa.

The resort has 18 very large traditionally thatched, beachfront houses called bures that are understated in their luxury. Burrowed in between the swaying palms trees right on the beach front, each Bure contains an expansive deck with daybeds; a discreet outdoor shower and air conditioning.

Dining

Specialising in first-class modern cuisine including succulent seafood caught daily just off the coast, the renowned chef’s at Yasawa Island Resort and Spa enjoy pushing the boundaries to surprise and delight their guests. Indeed, every meal, whether you are dining at the restaurant or on the beach under the stars is a culinary experience. Variety abounds and menus change daily accenting the freshest, regional ingredients of the day.

Activities

You’ll find plenty to do at Yasawa Island Resort. All motorised and non-motorised activities as well as trips and tours are included in the daily tariff (excluding fishing, diving & spa).

There are 11 pristine white beaches to choose from for a secluded uninhibited picnic. Or perhaps snorkelling on one of the untouched reefs, kayaking in the tropical waters or visiting a traditional Fijian village is more appealing.

In addition, you can play a game of tennis, beach volleyball or take a guided walk to the local villages and catch a local rugby match.

Pamper

For many guests, taking a trip to ‘Heaven’ is all about the pampering and Yasawa Island Resort’s famous all Ultimate Spa Bonus allows you to have a 50-minute Spa treatment each day of your stay at the beachfront Baravi Spa for a one-time payment of only $450FJD plus tax.
