Fabulous location, wonderful hosts and staff

The staff looked after us in a very personal way, if we didn't want to join in with organised activities they would ask if there was something else we would like to do. Food was reasonable for such a remote location. We hope to return to Viwa in the not too distant future.

Perfect Paradise

My Husband and I stayed at Viwa for 5 Nights & even though we knew it would be beautiful when we arrived we found that in real life it is much more beautiful and pictures simply do no justice. From the moment you arrive you are made welcome and to feel like family by the owners and the staff who come down to the beach to welcome you with smiles and singing. The staff are genuinely happy doing what they do and are well looked after by the owners. Every Meal we had was divine, all so fresh and well balanced with a good mix of seafood/meat and veg and also beautiful desserts our fave was the banoffee pie which is the best we have ever had! We took advantage of happy hour each night before dinner enjoying some cocktails.

Whilst in Viwa we did some free activities: paddle boarding, snorkelling, local village visits and we also had a free scuba dive trial(as part of our package) in the pool with one of the owners Roy and it was a really great opportunity to try out scuba diving for the first time. My Husband then went out on a scuba dive and seen a turtle, Mantaray, a school of Baracuda and heaps of colorful coral. Snorkelling is also amazing with heaps of coral and fish able to be seen just a short swim off the beach. We also took advantage of other paid activites: We went deep sea fishing and caught various fish including a great trevally and got to see the sunset and also seen dolphins, a shark, turtle and sealfish, the next day the chef cooked up the fish i caught for my husbands dinner. We also had a romantic dinner on the beach which was really nice. I had a massage which was really relaxing and well priced. We went on a picnic on a private beach which was well worth doing we were taken on a 10 min boat ride to a nearby island with a picnic lunch, snorkelling gear and paddle boards and left there for 4 hours to enjoy our very own piece of paradise.

The Bures are excellent and are cleaned daily. Picture perfect view from the bure so nice to sit out on the balcony or go down to the beach and lay on the beach chairs. There are only 11 Bures and no kids allowed so is very peaceful.

We could easily have stayed for twice as long as there is plenty to keep busy. The only bad is that we had to leave :(

We will most definately be back to Viwa and hope that too much does not change as it is truly perfect!

Best honeymoon ever. Beautiful location & beach.

We just returned from staying 7 nights at this beautiful Island for our honeymoon. We have visited a few Fijian island resorts now along with some on the Coral Coast and this has been the best Fjjian holiday experience we have had thus far. Sheung, Roy & Louise went out of their way to make sure from the moment we arrived that we we're welcomed into the Viwa family. Nothing was ever too much trouble. This resort has something very different to any other resort in Fiji.. this is a very personal touch. With only 11 bures on the island and it being such a small inimate resort, every staff member at the resort knows your name along with the other guests. You can be as involved as much as you want in the daily activities or you can just relax and not do anything at all. There are many activities to do daily. Basket weaving, cooking lessons, history hikes, village visits, snorkeling, handline fishing, diving, volleyball etc. The rooms are spread out along the beach from numbers 1 to 11. We stayed in bure number 5 which was perfect. We had a hammock right out the front (there are only 3 ) and a beautiful view of the reef . Every bure has their own thatched umbrella and sun lounges on the beach which was fantastic.
The bures had everything you needed. The generous deck with super comfy chairs and ottomans were a great way to relax in the afternoons with a glass of wine or cocktail.
The dinner menu changed every night which was great as you got to try something new and the lunch menu had so many options. The food was lovely.
This resort being Adults only 16+ makes it a wonderful place for honeymooners couples or adults just wanting to relax and escape lifes busy daily grind.
Don't expect tv's or Internet in the rooms. Although there is wifi at $20fjd per day in the meals area. . This resort is all about taking time out and enjoying all the beautiful scenery it has to offer. It is just a magical place and definitely one of Fijis hidden secrets.
I would highly recommend visiting this beautiful place for a traditional Fijian experience which you don't get at the resorts in Denaru or on the Coral Coast.

We look forward to visiting again soon
