Accommodation

The Yasawa Islands have that special remote and ‘untouched’ feeling to them. The resorts range in budget and style from very basic to very up-market.

Most of the Mamanuca and Yasawa Island resorts we work with are Fijian owned and run, making them super friendly, fun, relaxed and culturally authentic. You'll mix and mingle with the locals from the nearby island villages. Just about every resort is beachfront, with coral lagoons on your doorstep.

The resorts offer a range of room types including mixed dormitory, twin and double rooms. Many resorts are traditional thatched roof huts called 'bures' (pronounced boo-rays). The properties have generators, so you’ll have electricity from sunset ‘til midnight and generally for the first part of the morning. The local power socket is the same as for Australia and New Zealand. In most properties the beds will either have mosquito nets or the windows have screens, but we always recommend bringing along insect repellent.

Resorts
The Resorts are more modern properties with a strong Fijian flavour, and they have a high standard of accommodation and amenities. Rooms have fans or air-conditioning and there is more variety of meals. You'll feel welcome and immersed in the Fijian 'family'.

Local transport

All vessel transfers between the islands and the mainland are included.

Meals

Meal time is generally very social and a fantastic way to experience the Fijian culture. The menus at each resort differ, with some a la carte and some buffet style. Fijian food is generally very tasty and includes delicious fresh fruit, fish, barbecue meat and traditional fare, such as the melt-in-your-mouth marinated fish dish, kokoda.

Eating at the resort where you're staying is generally the only choice - there are no restaurants around the corner. The style of meals varies within the coconut tiers, but not surprisingly the general rule of thumb is the more upmarket the property, the better the dining experience you can expect. Having said that you’ll get some great meals at even the 1 coconut (Simple Stay) properties (especially the 'lovos' where food is cooked in the ground).

We recommend vegetarians inform the resort on arrival.

Additional info

Money Matters
Credit cards can now be used on most islands, but it is still advisable to have some cash with you. Please note there are no banks on the islands. The most convenient ATM machines are at Port Denarau, others are available in Nadi and at the airport. The currency is the Fijian dollar. Check out current exchange rates to get a sense of how much you’ll need.
