Comments Wakaya is the top resort in Fiji,. I have been to a dozen resorts throughout Fiji and it doesn't get any better than this. Each resort we have stay for a week or more and I felt like I never wanted to leave Wakaya.
You schedule your diving when it is convient for you. If you wanted to sleep in and have a late breakfast, then 10:00 was fine.You called the shots.
The reef around the resort has been protected for many years and it shows. Even the Fiji live-aboards stopped by and anchored in the bay for a day to enjoy this tropical beauty. The sites are 2 minutes from the dock. Most sites are wall dives, with small stuff on the wall and big stuff in the blue. The Passage, which I dove on both sides is a fish magnet. You conclude the dive by hanging out on the edge of the reef wall as clouds of Sharks, Manta(1), Fussiliers, Snappers, Barracuda, Beamers, Unicorn, Surgeonfish, and more are viewed through a cloud of small topical fish. It reminded me of the Blue Corner in Palau. A Hammerhead circled me but I was too busy watching a Lionfish with his out-strenched jaw. Everyone else saw it. All I can say is I'm going back, maybe this time I can have a Hammerhead encounter.
This resort provided the best food and wine list in Fiji ( all included). Did I mention the 9 hole-par-3, a few par-4's, Enjoyed several rounds with the local Fijians. Great way to finish off a day of diving. Other activities include guided nature hikes, picnics at a private beach, boat trip to Lavuka, etc.
For the non-diver the snorkling is great 100 feet in front of our bure.
Their private plane brings you in and out on your schedule.
Everything is included in the price Top-Wine, Food, Diving, Golf, Hikes, Private Picnics, Airplane, and Wonderful Bures.
