Yodra!! This was the third time I visited this area in the last 5 years. Wananavu has changed managers but the quality of service and amenities is still excellent. I am a SCUBA diver and find the Ra area wonderfully located near the Bligh Waters, a Magnificent display of undersea mounts that have an abundance of life. It is a...

We visited this resort for several days before joining a dive boat in Fiji in early December 2013. We had a bure right on the beach (I forget the number...4?) and it was absolutely perfect! We went diving every day with Mere and Keenie and they were first rate! The diving in Fiji is unbelievably wonderful and the dive masters...

The hotel staff are very friendly and the rooms are very well kept. The hotel site is very scenic with walkways around the site, to beaches, and around the marina. Vicky and Chris are great dive guides and took us to some nice sites with pinnacles and coral barrier reefs around small atolls. The fish life is abundant.

If you're looking to get away from the tourist zone, head to Rakiraki and stay at Wananavu. My husband and I visited for a 10 night stay in late September/early October, and we were very impressed with the resort. The staff is professional and courteous. Grounds are well maintained, and rooms are cleaned daily. We opted to stay in one...

My husband and I stayed at Wananavu at the tail end of a month long excursion. We loved it! We were looking for something that would not give us the typical resort feel that we could get in many places in the tropics; we were looking for something that was a little more out of the way that felt more...
