“Haven't been to heaven but this must be close”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2011

We are a couple in our late 30's from Minnesota with four children and we have been to a lot of destinations. We choose Fiji hoping to find something different. We spent a week at Yasawa Island Resort and it turned out to be the best vacation experience yet. It was everything we hoped for from excellent accommodations, superb cuisine, and some of the friendliest staff and villagers imaginable. We arrived at Yasawa Island Resort as vacations and left with a feeling that we were leaving friends behind. In past travels we have never had the feeling of safeness and honesty that we felt here. We were worried that 7 days would be to long and would get bored but 7 days was not long enough. We still had things we wanted to do when we left. We enjoyed Scuba Diving and Fishing with Atu, Waqa and Lye and the personal attention they gave us. We made a trip to the Blue Lagoon Caves, Lost Village on the North Shore, and had our own private day on Paradise Island. We also enjoyed a basket weaving demonstration by Waqa and the other villagers. Along with some a couple singing and dancing performances by the village choir. We were able to dance with the villagers also. We enjoyed a traditional Fijian feast where all the food is cooked in a pit dug in the sandy soil. We had many massages by Aggie at the Spa. She is wonderful and is definitely a must. Joe Seru the Duty's Manager if very personable heartfelt staff member that will answer any question you have and make you feel at home. Bill, Wati, Anna, and Manasa are also staff members and villagers that helped us always with happiness and excitement. You can tell they love what they do and are more then happy to help you. This is definitely a place we will go back to. We are already planning a trip for our family of six for March 2012.

We love Fiji and have been to so many of the 4 & 5 star resorts over the years, but we have finally found our nirvana! Yasawa is paradise... incredible beaches, the friendliest staff, unbelieveable food... we didn't want to go home and can't wait to visit again next year! Thank you for the best holiday we have had in decades!
