Most of us have been or will be suckered into a vacation by seeing some otherworldly picture in a travel magazine, only to find out that the reality is far less glamorous than (mis)represented. Our stay at the Nanuya Island Resort located in Fiji's Yasawa island group was certainly an exception, marking our first holiday destination where reality …
We are having a great time and soaking up the sun out here in the Yasawa Islands of Fiji. After visiting Auckland for a couple days we flew to Nadi and spent the night at the Tanoa International, nothing fancy but it worked as a quick stop before taking the Yasawa Flyer catamaran out of the port. First stop was Octopus Resort which felt …
For those of you who have been to Fiji, you will know exactly what I mean by the title of this chapter. For those of you who havenīt been - well you just simply have to go. The pace of life is wonderfully relaxed and nothing is any trouble and nothing at all seems to matter. The Fijians are very happy and content people. And why wouldnt they be. …
As we approached our last stop at Nanuya Island we had expected it to be a bit plusher but in fact it was a lot !!! After wadeing ashore from the transfer boat we were greeted by Alfie with a welcome drink and shown around the dining room and site ,, this place differed as you had to pay for your meals but it was a proper menu and restaurant ,, …

Historical Traveler Reviews Nanuya Island Resort
Like the other reviews say - this place is just perfect! Perfect in terms of:
Best place we stayed
This was the best place we stayed during our 10 days in Fiji. The location is beautiful and the owners and all the staff go out of their way to ensure the guests are happy. We had a bure up on the hill and it was gorgeous. The food at the restaurant was excellent and all the amenities we above average as well. Highly recommend it!
When you're in need of a recharge you couldn't go wrong staying here. No pressure (aside from what shall I eat today from the world class kitchen) and the staff are discreet and are hardly ever seen , its the best relaxing holiday I've had this year. Management are alwarys interested in how your visit is going and the beach is a delight. Snorkelling is just off the beach and there is an interesting and varied amount of marine life. The accomodation is nice too, the rooms are kept very clean and the views are nice for sunsets. We stayed in a "tree house" and initially I had concerns because of the proximity of the rooms to neighbours and to the main lounge - I should not have worried... Island life doesn't start here until after 8am, if you're the party goer, you'd need to look elsewhere as the idylic days end around 9pm - although I do know the more adventurous sit up late with the fijian string band. It's a really peaceful holiday. Looking forward to returning to Nanuya.
Just returned from a five night stay at Nanuya - our best holiday ever! Found it on this site and booked it only after reading the positive reviews and researching its sheltered position in the beautiful Yasawa Island Group.
Recently returned to freezing Tasmania from the most wonderful 6 days at Nanuya Island resort. Travelling were myself, husband and 2 teenagers aged 14 and 17.
Well, I think the other reviews seem to sum up Nanuya very well, and there isn't much more to say other than to express my appreciation to Lance and his wonderful staff for an absolutely delightful stay.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Nanuya for 6 nights in a deluxe bure which was simple but beautiful. Food was divine!!!!!
My words don't seem to do Nanyua the justice it deserves. It isn't just the surroundings, it isn't just the people, it is the whole package that makes it great!!!
Thanks again Lance and I will certainly be back........
Magnificent is the only word to go close to this Resort. Everything is well above expectations, and run to perfection.
After staying at Beachcomber, which I found sub-par in terms of the beach (you step on coral as you walk along the limited shoreline) and the food I was pleasantly surprised when the Yasawa flyer arrived at Nanuya. It took us over 3 hours on the Flyer to get there, but it was well worth it. As we approached the resort, I was immediately relieved since we knew so little about it prior to booking. I saw wooden lounge chairs with foam floating rafts atop them and hammocks amongst the palm trees and thought...this is what I expected Fiji to be like. We were greeted immediately by the owner, Lance, who is incredibly hospitable. He took us to the bar/dining area where we were greeted with a cool tropical drink and he oriented us to the island while our bags were taken to our room.
Most amazing time
My husband and I stayed for a week, and from the time we stepped out of the water taxi it was amazing. The whole staff is super nice, the bures were simple and pretty. The food was to die for, I ate food I had never ate back at home. I had never eating as healthy as I did in any vacation. It truly is secluded, tranquilizing, and you for sure are in peace. Swimming in the blue lagoon is speechless. I recommend this resort, for all the people that need to de-stress from their busy schedules. No party life here, just relaxation. We're planning another trip.
I will add some pictures next week.
Absolutely loved our stay at Nanuya. We opted for the Deluxe Beachfront Villa, which was just perfect for us. There is a great verandah to sit and watch the sun twinkling on the water through the coconut palms. Inside is spacious and extremely comfortable. There are 2 single beds (or day beds) with ceiling fan - great to lay on and read if it gets too hot outside. Main queen bed straight under ceiling fan - very comfortable with louvres all around and screened windows. Bathroom was lovely with indoor/outdoor huge shower area. There are 4 of these little villas, then 4 more traditional thatched bures perched high on the hillside. I'm sure they had a lovely view, but I found it much more convenient being closer to the beach and not having to climb the hill to get book/sunscreen/drink etc. The management and staff at Nanuya are very friendly and helpful, and the food is fantastic! On the Friday night the local village band came and played which was really nice, and it made us realise that perhaps the one thing that was missing on a daily basis was some evening music while we ate dinner. Just recorded music would be fine - as it did lack a little bit of atmosphere for the evening meal.
