Nicest stay in Yasawa, but meal plan pricing ludicrous

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 May 2024via mobile
Spent last 8 nights in Fiji. First 4 Nanuku (amazing hospitality) and last 4 Yasawa, dividing time between Oarsman Bay (cave tour), Paradise Cove and Waya Island (newest resort).

Overall, Paradise cove is by far the nicest. Upgraded from Garden Burre to One bedroom oceanfront suite upon arrival. The room was very nice, huge and lovely bathroom, and complimentary mini bar with soda and beer. WiFi and AC worked great.

The beach area is calm and serene. Excellent snorkeling. Pool and bar area nice as well.

The meal plan is compulsory or mandatory. The price is egregious per person at 259 FJD and coupled with hotel pricing would make me reconsider visiting the Yasawa in the future. I can stay at many 5 star all inclusive resorts and have an equal to better experience. Drinks aren’t included so you can easily spend 400/500 per day on food and beverage. Breakfast and lunch are single menu item orders and if you are hungry, pay up for more!

Bottom line is the resort is very nice and if I were to return to Yasawa, this is the spot. Many reviews leave out details and I try to be transparent.
Date of stay: May 2024
Room Tip: The Japanese omikase is quite nice although you may be hungry afterwards

If you are looking for that local Fijian experience. Wayalailai is the place!  Beautiful island, beautiful people and amazing local Fijian food. 🫶  Out of all the islands I visited it also had the BEST hike where you can see sunrise & sunset. Great for solo travellers and also perfect for family’s. There is limited phone reception giving you that perfect escape to enjoy the island vibes. You can dive, snorkel, learn weaving, local village tour & more. Highly recommend!!

We loved it from the moment we arrived; Everyone was so genuinely friendly and the atmosphere was simply extremely relaxing the entire time. The staff were super helpful but you also felt like they loved working there.

Beautiful location of course but also great and well kept amenities, fantastic food (and good selection of it - for sure try the tapas menu in the restaurant at the back)! We stayed at a few different resorts whilst island hoping but this was by far our favourite.

Room tip: Walk up to the sunset viewpoint with some drinks and enjoy!

Most amazing place - heaven on earth.

Samu, Ida, Eta and Zach were amazing, helpful, friendly people.

It was our second time there and we will go back!

The food was out of this world amazing and the gluten free options were great - the pancakes were delicious.

Room tip: Most amazing comfortable beds.

What a week, treated like royalty by the most friendly staff. An exceptional resort with loads of activities to do or you can just chill out under a palm tree. The quality of the food was only exceeded by the quantity. All in all one of the best holidays in our lives and we will certainly be back in the future.

Paradise cove is aptly named- a tiny piece of heaven on earth. From the moment you arrive to the welcome “Bula”, the pace of life slows down . The staff are delightful, the food delicious and the accomodation comfortable. Transport from Denarau on the Yasawa Flyer is an experience not to be missed.

I recently Stayed at Paradise Cove with a travel group. The best part of our Hotel Experience after a long Boat Ride was our Welcome Cocktail and Fijian Welcome Song and a few days later....Our Fijian Goodbye Song. In Two Days we felt so special that We were hugging the Friendly Staff Good Bye. I Got Injured on Some Coral and was Carried to the Boat so my foot did not get wet. Now that is some VIP service even though I am definely not a VIP 

Room tip: The Island is remote, so make sure you have a personal travel Kit with medicene and First Aide. There is an onsite Nurse. But be prepared.
