Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent seven nights at Waya. Fabulous location, staff and service. The rooms are clean and well equipped. The selection of water activities like stand up paddle boards are a great inclusion.
The food is mostly western inspired, everything was made with a lot of attention to detail.
The amazing staff were always so helpful and did everything with a smile.
Special thanks to Bati, Luke and Api for making our trip so memorable!
We thoroughly recommend Waya Resort, it is a tiny paradise that feels more like your own private island experience than a resort!

Absolutely magnificent spot, one of my favorite places. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Loved the quirky do not disturb signs, red coconut for don’t disturb & green welcome to knock on the door! 😊 I truly love the green creeper vines on the walls, unique. The views are breathtaking. Excellent food. Highly recommend, I can’t wait to return 😊💚🩵

Waya Island Resort is a piece of paradise, the grounds and gardens are lush and beautiful. Our Villa was extremely comfortable and even had an outdoor shower. The staff are amazing, so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. I have to eat gluten free food, the chef adapted the meals on the daily menus to gluten free. His warm gluten free muffins each morning at breakfast were a highlight. We had a wonderful time, an unforgettable holiday.

Paradise Found!! What a unique place - this 17 villa, adults only resort is the ultimate way to pamper yourself. Fiji’s tag-line is Welcome Home. By the time we left Waya Island Resort, I felt like I was leaving family. Every single person on the resort would stop what they were doing, greet us by name and ask if there was anything they could do for us. The love and pride they have for their resort shines through in everything they do. The villas, that are open, airy and kept spotless during our stay, blend into the natural environment. The outside (private) showers are delightful. The food was phenomenal. Full breakfast, lunch and 3 course dinner - all ingredients showcasing the islands natural resources. This felt and tasted like 5 star dining. Their homemade ice cream quickly became one of my husband’s favorite things. Wandering down to the sunset bure at the end of the day where we were brought our drink of choice and roasted coconut (Fiji popcorn) quickly became one of my favorite things. Attending a Kava ceremony is a must. While you might be tempted to stay on the resort, I highly recommend you let Api and Captain take you snorkeling or into the village for a visit. The choir at Sunday church service was indescribable-has to be heard to fully understand how moving. While I would love to mention everyone by name, we simply met too many people that leant to the total experience and I wouldn’t want to leave anyone out, however, when you see Loui, tell him Nancy sent you….while I would like to say that will get you extra special service, something tells me he provides extra special, excellent service to all who are fortunate enough to step foot on this paradise island resort.

Ended up on this island by chance. What we found here defies description. Location, staff, bungalows and service are of unprecedented quality. Rarely have I been so excited about a beach holiday. Don't expect mass tourism, so don't expect a disco either. A few days of pampering that will remind you of paradise. Take the boat from Denarau at Nadi and after 2 hours of sailing the Yasawa islands come into view. The hotel crew will pick you up from the ship and the party can begin. A SUPER destination... Bula..
