All activities except ﬁshing and (open water) scuba diving are included in your daily tariff at Yasawa Island Resort.
One of Yasawa’s unique water based activities is an excursion to the Blue Lagoon Caves. Travel the picturesque length of Yasawa Island by boat with your fellow guests; skim over turquoise waters and past incredible cliffs and beaches. Hidden beneath a dramatic volcanic peak at the southern end of Yasawa Island are the Blue Lagoon Caves, one of the settings for the 1980 movie starring Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins. Visit this spectacular lagoon and swim within its hidden chambers, linked to the sea by underwater passages.
Yasawa Island Resort is surrounded by deserted beaches, ready of you to enjoy a specially prepared private beach picnic. Whether it’s an afternoon relaxing on the beach or a romantic getaway, our friendly staff will pack a delightful picnic for you to enjoy. Like all meals at Yasawa Island Resort, the private beach picnic is included in the all-inclusive tariff.
Yasawa Island is made up of rugged volcanic rock whose sheer cliffs fall into the sea creating the most amazing limestone coral formations and drops offs. The island is surrounded by uncharted reefs, submerged in turquoise and jade green seas. Our remote location gives us the enviable situation of having all of Yasawa’s incredible dive sites to ourselves. The western side of the island (where the resort is located) is surrounded by magnificent, unspoiled coral reefs and offers a broad cross section of dive possibilities for all levels of divers. Some sites offer gentle current, others little or none. Let the expertise of our dive team assist with dive site choices of the day, taking into consideration local sea conditions, tides, currents and your dive experience. For those wanting to try scuba diving for the ﬁrst time, the resort offers complimentary PADI Discover Scuba Diving pool sessions and PADI Open Water Certiﬁcation courses.
On an island overlooked by the modern world, Yasawa offers an intimate and authentic cultural experience. With the permission of the chief, guests can visit the nearby village of Bukama where school children offer a welcome in song. Or at the resort, guests might take part in a lovo (Fijian feast), witness an evening Meke (dance ceremony), or sense the full resonance of Fijian voices when the village choir pays a visit on Sunday evenings.
Yasawa Island Resort & Spa takes great care to ensure all guests enjoy their dining experience in Fiji. Our freshly caught seafood and local produce will be available for when you experience our local cooking demonstrations. Cooking style is Fijian, featuring traditional South Pacific recipes using all local ingredients, herbs and spices and you'll be able to return home and recreate your Fijian experience for your friends and family.
It is difficult to market the cultural component of a visit to Yasawa, but undoubtedly it is these experiences that guests remark on the most. Fiji is famous for its kava, and here at Yasawa Island Resort & Spa you'll be able to partake in a traditional Fijian kava ceremony. You'll love our resort, the beaches, and the food, but it is our local community and culture that touches you and leaves a lasting imprint on your heart, long after you have departed our sandy shores
