How to Get There
Words are not enough! I could write a book and fill a library with the experiences we had at Viwa. The Island itself is stunningly beautiful. The ocean is a multitude of blues and greens with gentle waves lapping onto white fine sandy beaches. There are corals galore full of multi colored fish, crabs and an abundance of sealife. If snorkeling is your passion, come here, if scuba diving is your passion come here, if relaxing on a beach is your thing then guess what,come here! Its better than paradise.
The resort is second to none. The rooms are spacious, clean and the bathrooms are an experience as they are part outdoors.
Food was delicious and the bar was well stocked. Happy hour every night had a new cocktail to enjoy. The staff are outstanding. The warmth and friendliness we received from the moment we stepped off the boat was overwhelming. We truly felt we had come home to family. Each day we had a new experience, singing is part of every day life with constant smiles wherever you go. There are too many activities to mention however the village visit was quite exceptional and the concert held just for us by the school children was such a joy. You can partake in many games and adventures or simply kick back and relax. There are no roads, no traffic, no trains or buses - so peaceful!
Roy and Louise are by far the best hosts ever. They make the resort truly special. They are very much involved and take the time to greet each and every guest and ensure your stay is perfect.
Leaving this place and the people was very hard. We took the seaplane back to the mainland and highly recommend it. I could go on and on, this resort is simply the best and not to be missed.
Viwa Island Resort is a dream come true. Fiji was on my bucket list for years, and Viwa Island Resort exceeded all of my expectations.
The staff is simply amazing. Their smiles and top-notch service is the best we have ever experienced in our travels. Their singing makes me smile every time I watch my videos.
The owners, Roy, Louise & Sheung, were present and involved. They socialized with the guests and it was evident that they care about Viwa Island and their staff.
I had a prior bad experience diving in the Caribbean and wasn’t certain I would ever try it again, but Roy and Sheung spent time talking with me and were very reassuring, so I did ... and it was an absolutely amazing experience that restored my comfort level. When I got in the water to dive after a refresher lesson in the pool, I felt educated and safe and enjoyed the dive immensely.
The resort itself is beyond beautiful and very well maintained. The food was amazing (I’m having coconut snowball withdrawal). The beach area offered excellent snorkeling.
We had massages and participated in some of the numerous activities offered, with a great deal of time spent simply relaxing.
The happy hour was relaxing with great music and a chance to socialize before dinner. We made new friends with other guests and the staff and would go back today if we were able.
We stayed at two other resorts in Fiji during our vacation that were also great, but Viwa is a phenomenal place ... if you’re deciding where to stay in Fiji, I would highly recommend putting Viwa at the top of your list.
After our first visit to Viwa Island Resort I began our review with the words, “Although our expectations were high, they paled into insignificance with the reality of Viwa. From the moment we arrived, welcomed by the beautiful voices and warm smiles of the amazing staff, … every perfect, magical minute on Viwa is a precious memory.” For our second visit in April, our expectations were even higher yet Viwa did it again, so much better than expected.
Viwa is reached by seaplane or boat and, even before you step onto the golden sand, the sound of the fabulous voices of the Fijians greet you with welcome songs, followed by huge hugs and lots of warm wishes as you reach the sand. As before, once we were escorted to our bure we were delighted with the thoughtful touches— delicious home baked cookies and charming arrangements of hibiscus flowers with the towels and toiletries.
Each day begins with staff singing while you partake of a great breakfast overlooking the ocean. For the energetic, there are numerous free activities to enjoy, guided snorkelling, kayaking and hand line fishing tours, cooking and sulu tying demonstrations, basket weaving, history hikes, village visits and volleyball with the staff. For the less energetic at the front of each bure is your own section of pristine beach with two lounges, a large thatched umbrella, and a hammock. Perfect for relaxing in this tranquil paradise after snorkelling or swimming. As well you can opt for deep sea fishing or diving with qualified instructors (owners Sheung and Roy). A thoughtful touch initiated by the management team are refreshing glasses of cold water brought around throughout the day while lazing on the beach and offered after every activity.
Make sure to book a massage with Maria—they are not to be missed.
As evening falls, sit back and enjoy spectacular sunsets, followed by delicious food and entertainment. The melodious voices of Illy, Ronny and Jonne entertain guests until 9pm (Illy, we love your first CD and are very much looking forward to buying your second one), this is followed by various activities or shows, something different every night. There are the fabulous Pacific and Fijian shows where staff entertain with a great performance, on Sunday evenings there is the church choir (it’s impossible to be unmoved by the wonderful voices), and on other nights we enjoyed lots of fun, dancing and laughter with crab racing, Monte Carlo, family fun and trivia nights
Then, there are so many friends to thank. Unlike many other resorts, where the attempt is to suppress the natural exuberance of the Fijians by managers who erroneously believe that this is what visitors expect, the management team at Viwa is much wiser and so quests experience the real Fijian—laughter, singing, contentedness, friendship, dancing, happiness, finding real pleasure in life are just some of their characteristics. We feel very privileged to call so many of you friends and cherish our memories of you all. Soto tale, we can’t wait to be with you again in October.
I ended our first report with, “I struggled to find the right words to convey the absolute magic of Viwa, then realised that they are just words and words will never adequately express what is Viwa, its very essence gets under your skin and captures, a forever to remain, part of your heart.”
So just what is it that makes Viwa such a magical kingdom is something we’ve pondered and have come to the conclusion that there are several components. There is the brilliant location, wonderful entertainment and activities, and playing a major role are the friendly, genuine, warm-hearted and happy Fijians and something very special—the fantastic management team. Akuila the general manager, respected and admired by all; owners Louise and Sheung who with their caring warm natures and attention to detail ensure that for every second, every guest enjoys the very best that Viwa has to offer; and owner Roy whose charismatic and jocular nature adds to the camaraderie and belonging to the family feeling that prevails at Viwa. Together their various talents generate the sensational environment of a ‘heaven on earth’ paradise.
From the moment we stepped off the seaplane we were in a tropical island paradise. A wonderful warm, friendly welcome greeted us on arrival. Our beachfront bure was amazing and well appointed, with an outdoor bathroom. The daily activities were loads of fun. You could keep yourself busy snorkeling, hand-line fishing, village visits, etc. or just laze on the beach on your own personal lounger. The diving was spectacular with highly experienced professional staff. Each evening we had a different performance or activity which all the staff participated in. The friendly staff really went out of their way to make us feel like part of their Viwa Island family. We highly recommend this resort for anyone looking for a relaxing tropical getaway and true experience of the Fijian culture and hospitality - Sota tale
My wife and I have just returned from a week at Viwa. It really is the most wonderful place. Every single member of staff goes out of their way to make your stay (no matter how long or short) as enjoyable as possible. You will struggle to meet a nicer bunch of genuinely friendly people anywhere. The on site owners, Roy, Louise and Sheung also add their own unique personalities to further ensure your stay is as enjoyable as possible.
We both brought back some wonderful memories (one of them being Roy falling asleep at dinner!).
In all seriousness if you are undecided about going do yourself a favour and go - you will not be disappointed!
