Heaven on Earth


Heaven on Earth

With stretches of untouched white-sand beaches and pristine jade waters, you’ll soon discover the meaning of heaven on earth at Yasawa Island Resort.

With over 300 islands sprinkled through the azure waters of Fiji, pinpointing just one to travel to can be tricky. Nestled near the top of the 20-island archipelago which makes up the Yasawa group, Yasawa Island Resort is one of the most remote and unspoiled spots in the country. And with just 18 bures peppered amongst lush tropical gardens and palm trees, it’s also one of the most private resorts you’ll come across.

The Yasawa Island Resort experience begins before you even sink your feet into the crystal-white sand as the journey to the secluded location makes for an unforgettable start your holiday.

The only way in and out is by a private plane and there’s nothing quite like soaring high above Fiji’s turquoise tropical waters and white-sand beaches to remind you that you really are in paradise. Once you touch down you’ll be whisked away – a short five or 10-minute drive – to your accommodation. Each of the traditionally thatched bures is luxurious in space and size, and spaced well apart from any neighbours, so you’ll feel like you’re the only one at the resort. For those looking to really unwind, there’s an expansive deck with daybeds for serious sunbathing. Step down onto the sand to discover a hammock hung between the palms and your very own thatched cabana complete with sun loungers.

For those in search of something extra special, a stay in Yasawa Island Resort’s Honeymoon Bure is a once-in-a-lifetime experience you won’t easily forget. Located a 10-minute stroll down the white-sand beach – the friendly staff will happily transport you to and fro – the bure makes you feel like you and that special someone are the only ones in paradise. Take a quick dip in your private infinity pool that overlooks the beach or grab a snorkel and step right off the beach to explore Yasawa’s majestic underwater world.

Escaping to your own private slice of idyllic Yasawa Island isn’t reserved to those staying in the Honeymoon Bure – the island has 10 breathtaking beaches waiting to be discovered. All you need to do is ask and, as part of the all-inclusive stay at the resort, staff will prepare you a picnic and whisk you away to your very own private beach for the day. Spend the day in paradise soaking up the sun’s rays, swimming in warm crystal-clear waters and discovering colourful coral reefs and marine life.

Aside from the private beach picnic, there are plenty of activities on offer to fill your sun-soaked days. Take a trip to the local village, try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding or visit one of the island’s world-renowned dive spots. If it’s a whole lot of doing not much at all that you’re looking for, you’re in luck: relaxation is all part of the Yasawa Island Resort way. The remote, untouched location means that switching off comes naturally. With hammocks strung between palms, sun loungers in the sand and by the pool, you’ll always find that perfect spot in the sun to grab a great book, take in the atmosphere and just enjoy discovering the meaning of heaven on earth.
