How to Get There
We stayed at the Viwa Island Resort for 10 days at the end of Feb 2019. The resort is fantastic, the staff is very warm and genuinely friendly and happy, and the food is outstanding. The room was very well appointed, clean and comfortable. We took part in a lot of activities. The snorkeling is great, the scuba diving was incredible, even swimming off the beach was wonderful. Best of all though, was the people. The staff and people of Viwa we interacted with treated us like family and really were helpful and attentive to us. If you are looking for a fantastic experience, come here.
We spent 5 days in this beautiful place after a 4 week fly/drive in New Zealand. The island offered us the opportunity to chill out and relax. We were able to join in with the organised activities when we chose such as snorkelling, village visit, Kava ceremony and the Fijian evening.
The staff are full of Fijian enthusiasm to share their island with you and want you to have a special time. The food variety and preparation meant that we were never bored with the menu choice. The rooms are comfortable and offer all the amenities that you need but having been well used for the last 13 years perhaps they could do with some repair and renewal. The housekeeping standards were very good but also we experienced a variety of different standards. Some good, some not so good.
The grounds are well maintained and looked after. They allow you to have a very peaceful break whilst enjoying the lagoon and all it has to offer. Bait and his colleagues are really good with organising the water activities and it was reassuring that they were very conscious of the safety of all participants. Some non swimmers went snorkelling while we were there.
You will not be disappointed by choosing to stay at Viwa Island it was one of best decisions we could have made to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. The staff are so attentive and accommodating, going out of their way to make you feel special and appreciated. We stayed in a Deluxe Beachfront and what a view from our patio, it was picture postcard perfect. The great thing about this resort is there are plenty of activities and if you don't feel like doing anything at all then just sit back and relax while you listen to the waves of the ocean. The resort only has the one restaurant, but we never felt limited by the choices and the food quality and presentation were fantastic. We took advantage of the many activities, which included kayaking on the reef right of front of the resort, the coral and fish are amazing to view. Snorkeling and several visits to the local villages on the island. With no TV and limited WiFi access you might think you would get bored but not so, just the beauty and serenity of the island will whisk you away. We visited in early November 2018 and we are still each talking about how much we enjoyed our stay! Kudos to the staff at Viwa Island for making our stay so enjoyable and helping us to celebrate our 30th anniversary.
My adult daughter and I spent 3 days on Viwa Island last week and to say it is Paradise on Earth is an understatement. We were in love from the minute we were welcomed to the island with the traditional Fijian 'Bula' singing and presentation of shell necklaces and coconut water drinks. The island is beautiful - stunning white sand, clear aquamarine and blue water, surrounded by a fringing reef so always calm and safe. There is some snorkelling right off the beach but also free daily snorkelling trips to different places around the island. Diving trips are also available but sadly we didn't have the time. The bures and main resort building are very 'Fijian' and clean, comfortable and well maintained. Fijian toiletries and a mini bar fridge are a nice touch. The staff are all gorgeous - so much Fijian 'bula' hospitality, happy smiles and attention to detail. The staff sang to us in breathtakingly beautiful voices at every meal and had a list of activities for guests each day and evening for those wishing to participate. On my daughter's birthday they sang Fijian birthday songs, and presented her with a beautiful birthday cake and a handmade lei made of fresh frangipani flowers. The food was amazing and a fabulous variety to choose from each day. No TV and WIFI (free) is only available at the main resort building so it was the perfect opportunity to 'digital detox' and simply revel in the quiet beauty of our surroundings. The crab race night is a lot of fun and the proceeds of our auction all went to the local school. We visited the local village school and kindy, where the school children put on a concert for us - so enjoyable. Tip: we took books, crayons, pencils etc to donate to the school, which was much appreciated. Viwa is quite a way from Denarau - the boat transfers (3 boats in all) takes about 4 and a half hours and costs around $155 FJD/pax one way. There is only one boat per day - this needs to be considered when booking international flights. If the budget and weather allow, I recommend taking the seaplane to Viwa at least one way - the scenery is spectacular and the flight is worth every cent. We used Turtle Airways. Drinks on the island are pretty expensive, even by Fiji standards - perhaps if management reduced the price of drinks people would spend more time at the bar and spend more money overall.
Our trip was far too short and we were sad to leave. Viwa is our new favourite island holiday destination and we can't thank our new Viwa Island 'family' enough for what was the experience of a lifetime - we are already planning our return. 6 stars!!!
My husband and I came here in October 2018 for our honeymoon and we loved this place. It is the most beautiful island and people. We stayed at 7 islands and this is our favorite. We had the best snorkeling to see the giant clams, our favorite Kava ceremony, and our favorite host Sera and Caroline. The beach is the whitest beach made out of coral and seashells. I really hope the management doesn't change a thing about this place. We would love to see the village kids to be able to go to the resort because they are very poor but good kids. Maybe have resort activities where the village kids can come and hang out with guests who want to see them. Please management, don't change a thing. We love this place and we will be back shortly.
