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!
