Comments I stayed at Waidroka Bay Resort March 17-29, 2022, after a stay at VoliVoli resort. Waidroka arranged for transportation by car to their resort, with pick-up at VoliVoli. It was a four hour drive which passed uneventfully.

I was greeted upon check-in and immediately offered lunch. The layout of the resort is basic—the “main hall” has check-in, dining room, bar, and lounge area and is centrally located. There are a number of bures located on the same level as the main hall and several that require a walk up a hill. The pool is located just in front of the main hall and there is a nice covered area for outdoor massage near the pool. The dive shop is about 70 paces away. Each diver is assigned a bin for masks/fins/booties, etc. BCs are handled by the crew after the first dive.

My bure was clean and comfortable with wood floors, a patio with table and two chairs and view to the bay, bathroom with sink, toilet and shower. Water pressure in the shower was good, hot water was plentiful. A small refrigerator housed a pitcher of water that was filled each day, and there was an air conditioner with a remote control that kept the room very cool. I’m not sure that the calibration was properly set as I frequently had to keep raising the set temperature because the room was getting too cool—even at 24 degrees Celsius. Better that than to be too warm.
