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
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
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.
