Visited Waidroka on a day trip by chance to see if I could arrange a trip to Frigates. I was met by the friendly staff at Waidroka (Phil, Neil, & Amanda) who went out of their way to ensure that my request was met. I managed to get a couple of hours surfing at 'pipes' with nobody but Phil and I there followed by a 4 hour surf at Frigates the next day which was fantasic. I surfed 'pipes' again a couple of days later and was able to take my 12 year old son along who spent the time fishing from the boat. I was really impressed by the can do attitude of the staff at Waidroka and I am definitely planning my next trip there with my son in the near future.

“Great family holiday” does not even come close to just how fantastic our holiday was! What an experience! From world class surfing spots (with no one else out), snorkelling coral reefs, that make Disney’s Finding Nemo look pale, discovery scuba diving, getting qualified for open water diving, diving with sharks, chilling on the verandah, great food, a view that is so good you don’t even want to read your book, learning weaving from Ponti, volleyball before beers and with beers, pool and darts before dinner, lying in the hammock or on the day bed, massages by the ocean, tours of nearby villages, rafting the rivers, happy hour at sunset on the pontoon, Kava on the verandah, bar-b- que night, shopping in Suva, opening coconuts and the zip line, we did it all. Staying at Waidroka is like staying with family who just happen to live in a beautiful secluded rainforest on the famous coral coast of Fiji, and who cater to your every need. Nothing is ever a problem, the atmosphere is relaxed and the accomodation fantastic. You can be as adventurous as you want or just sit and do nothing and soak up the sun and tranquility. Thank you to all the crew at Waidroka for making our family holiday so memorable and utterly magical. We will be back. Love you guys. Thanks heaps. Vinaka Vakalevu.

The whole "Waidroka-experience" was great. If you are an active surfer, diver, fisher or snorkler you can't go wrong here. ( awesome surf-spots, some of the best diving-spots I have ever seen!!)
The staff and management provided for us a "home away from home".
Everything from great food, wonderful dinner-settings and fun all day is givin at this location.
Amanda and Neil do everything with such an ease that staying there gets to be adictive...(statements like "just grab a (surf) board, you might want surf in between dives...and a fishing rod, we can do trolling on the way back" make this place unique!

Stayed at waidroka last week for eight days and my trips focus was surfing, got some of the best waves i have ever seen let alone ridden and there are no crowds. There is so much more to do there tho, the snorkeling is like looking through the pages of a holiday brochure we saw turtles, sharks, dolphins and hundreds of different species of fish. We also went out fishing one day and caught a coral trout and got to cook it up for dinner that night on the BBQ. The resort is managed by a small team which makes it more personal and it feels like a family, every night everyone sits down to dinner together and the food is awesome. I was stoked with my trip to waidroka and cant wait to return, the old reviews are completely wrong about this place, I would recommend this place to anyone.

I find it very hard to find fault with this place. We stayed here for just one night whilst driving around Viti Levu but would have happily stayed for longer. The resort is ideal for surfers and divers (of which we are neither) but would definitely also appeal to anyone who wants to relax in a very tranquil setting. The resort is about 4km from the main road and you can forget that the rest of the world exists.

Our room was a very comfortable bure in the lovely garden setting but with views of the sea - it was just a shame that we didn't have longer to enjoy it! The relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the resort, created and encouraged by the management, was very appealing to us. There were various water-based activities on offer and we would have enjoyed some of those with more time. We did take a short trip to the platoon for a sunset snorkel and a beer, which was idyllic.

Meals are served in the communal area and it was nice to a have a reasonable choice for breakfast and lunch. Dinner is served as a group and, whilst we did not choose from a menu any dietary requests were catered for and it was an outstanding meal. At all times the staff looked after our needs in a very informal way, which put us at ease. It is a personal level of service that differs from any other place in which we stayed in Fiji and I would like to congratulate the staff for achieving this.

We would not hesitate to return to Waidroka in the future.
