We stayed at Viwa Island Resort for 7 nights in September for our honeymoon. It was the most amazing place that we will remember for the rest of our lives. From the moment you arrive on the island (we definitely recommend the seaplane; it's the best way to arrive and depart), you know you've picked a very special spot. They...

Viwa Island Resort will live in our imaginations forever. The weather was perfect, the staff were kind and all beautiful singers, and the rooms are 5 star. The food is excellent, the drinks are perfectly made, and the experience of getting to know your fellow travelers (or not) makes this place our home in Fiji. I'm not sure when we...

I and my wife, together with our two teenage boys ( 16 and 17 years old) stayed at Viwa for 8 days in September. Having been to Fiji in January the previous year, when it was very hot and sometimes wet, September seems to be the time to go - not too hot and the water temperature is ideal. This...

Restored my faith in Fiji as a peaceful resort destination - Viwa Island Resort exceeded our expectations and made the heart of a cynical traveler smile. While the location, island landscape & resort environment were as promised - the culture delivered the X factor. It's all about the people - warm, delightfully unpolished, and genuine. Wallace & Jo say Vinaka.
