It is perhaps the most famous resort in the Yasawas, which was opened 15 years ago by an Austrian couple who fell in love with the islands. It has expanded over the years and now is perhaps a little big, but has impeccable facilities, a swimming pool that is also used for diving courses, and plenty of sunbeds and hammocks scattered along the beach. The food is excellent and there are 10 beds in the dormitorios.
It's my favorite resort. The owner is Australian, but they employ over 45 local people and are very grateful, so when visiting the village you are received with a big party with dancing and singing. The resort opened in late 2009 and is very good, with a beautiful beach and situated close to the Blue Lagoon, where they filmed the movie The Blue Lagoon with Brooke Shield a few years ago.
A small family resort, but only 20 minutes walk along the beach or trail away from the beach from the famous Blue Lagoon, where you can snorkel among thousands of fish and corals. The owner, Terry, is a great showwoman, who tells you a thousand stories and is an expert at card tricks.
This is a very well-known resort since it's next to the famous Blue Lagoon. It's well designed and first class, with cabins at different heights of the hill on which they are based, which are almost invisible from the sea. It has a dive center to the top of the Yasawas
It is a little bit isolated in a small bay that empties at low tide and prevents you from swimming without having to walk more than a hundred meters. Also they charge for boats, which few resorts do. The site is original, with the restaurant next to the beach, and accommodation on a small hill with fabulous views over the bay and the island. The food is pretty poor and unoriginal, and they put the same for lunch and dinner, rice with sausage
Although it's on the same island as the Bay of Plenty, it's located on a beautiful beach perfect for swimming and snorkeling. The resort is quite nice and the staff is very friendly, and they offer daily excursions to the Blue Lagoon and other points of interest.
Siairo and Eta are the owners of this resort, which has become well-known for its family atmosphere, but the rooms leave much to be desired, it has 32 beds in 16 berths, and the people in the bottom bunks never receive breeze from the fans so it can be very hot. On the other hand you can eat well and the beach is very nice. They have excursions to the nearby town and diving with sharks and manta rays
As its name suggests, the Manta Ray resort is famous because the manta ray, which can reach up to 4 meters in length and navigate the shallow channel between the 2 islands, making it one of the best places to see them. It is a resort with 2 beaches, both east and west, and as a result of water shortage on the island, has a water treatment plant and waterless composting toilets. The restaurant is on the highest part of the hill where guests can enjoy some amazing views. The bedroom is kind of weird, made of cement cubicles with 4 beds with mosquito nets, which are a bit small and unfit and claustrophobic.
Kuata could be Stevenson's Treasure Island, as it has many caves and giant rocks of strange shapes which, with a little imagination could transform into Skull Island. The resort is basic but the family who manages it is lovely, and from the beach you can see the sunrise and sunset.
