From the moment you arrive to departure everything is perfection and everyone is friendly and willing to do anything it takes to make your stay with them full of great memories. Reality of the resort is even better than the photos. Cannot recommend this enough the personal touches and the family feel is something to treasure that you just can never get from large resorts. This is the best place to go in fiji.

We loved our stay here.
The people and employees are really what separates this resort from others (others being resorts outside of Fiji, as this was our only stay within Fiji). The staff are very personable and you get to know them on a personal level, greeting each other by first names, learning about their families and lifestyles. They say Yasawa Island resort is your home away from home and they really make you feel like it is.
Another nice thing about this resort is you can have a full spectrum of participating in activities to relaxing and lounge on the beach/pool. The private picnics were amazing with great views and the staff was very accommodating with them.
This is a great place to completely unplug and enjoy life for how it should be enjoyed...in paradise.
the smaller garden bungalow was very adequate, those water front ones sure looked good though! outdoor shower was lovely, even in the rain. Noise levels were ok, there was a sound of a generator or desalination plant through the night, but I would imagine this would be common to all island resorts. the beach is sandy and beautiful but not very long, and at each end are slippery rocks, not the place for long beach walks, and if the weather isn't on your side and not nice for snorkeling or kayaking you feel a bit closed in with not much to do. The bar was awesome but drinking is not my thing! I would suggest glass bottomed kayaks, I'm sure there's such a thing..? for cold weather, great also for the kids who cant get out to the deeper snorkel zone. The food was delicious, the staff were warm and helpful.
From when we first hopped on the transfer boat and the beach Botaira was one of my favourites. The welcome and main hunt just completely what you want a FIJI to be. Homely, friendly, welcoming and traditional. The staff are lovely and sang through each of our meals. The gave a great concert on the first night with traditional singing and dance. The beach front villa was very large with beautiful Fiji pattern painted on the high ceiling. I had a nice bathroom and hot water in the evenings and a fridge. They provide fresh water in the room daily and had a good selection of free activates and even though at dinner there were a few guests you felt like that the whole place was just yours. We did a village visit and this is well worth it. Snorkelling and swimming is good as is many places in Fiji.
I did not want to leave and I would return in a heart beat.
Lovely staff, great setting. Good food, reasonably priced wifi. A nice mix of backpackers and others( from honeymooners to energetic retirees.) The large tables at mealtimes encourage people to interact. Great eco friendly resort. Staff also ensure no snorkelling at low tide, we have seen so much reef destruction in Figi...simply disrespect and / or lack of education of tourists. Very refreshing, well done guys!
Three beautiful beaches, nice activities and lovely staff.
The rooms and showers are very clean, the food is good and there are so many things to do, e.g. see the manta rays, hiking, diving...
We had such a good time on this island, thank you very much for this perfect stay!
Staff were fantastic, we got to know everyone and had such a personal experience. Lots of entertainment and activities. buses are very nice and clean. Resort may not be as modern as some other resorts but I think it adds to its charm. Would definitely go back again, mostly to see the amazing staff!
Beautiful resort, lots of activities, hike the mountain ridge to see the sunrise, dive shop on site, snorkeling right there on the beach, cave snorkel trip, night snorkeling. Lots of fun! They had fun activiites in the evening.
This was our first trip to Fiji. The Octopus Resort had been recommended to us. The location is superb and the diving is convenient. As in most places in Fiji, the staff are warm and friendly. I was not expecting the very good food that was on offer for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Resorts in Fiji are quite expensive and Octopus was no exception. Our bure was fine - on the beach, clean although quite basic. But then again, we really spent very little time inside. There are higher end options for a premium price.
The activities are well thought out and the village visits highly enjoyable. I was there with 2 children who loved it just as much as me.
Less developed than the nearby Mamanucas, the 16 Yasawa islands and smaller islets are noted for their lush hilltops, classic palm-fringed white-sand beaches, and brilliant coral reefs. Volcanic in origin, the islands are a paradise for cruisers, yachties, honeymooners, divers, and backpackers, with resorts to match, from budget through to exclusive 5-star retreats.
