What a beautiful spot, just metres from a white tropical oasis. We stayed in the beach house with a friend of ours and couldn't of asked for a more perfect location. Fantastic beach the snorkeling was brilliant. We will definitely be back.

My partner and I chose this beautiful location to get married mid June 2016 and I am so happy we did! We were also lucky enough to have family book and stay at the Vai Villas House right next door so we ended up having our ceremony there and the reception on the Vai Villas side which worked out perfectly....

I was just reading through recent reviews and was very suprised about comments over management. We are regular visitors at these villas and have never had any problems with staff or management. Hence our repeat holidays there. If it were not for my wife banning me from Raro for 18 months 😈 we would have been back at Via Villas... More

I loved this accommodation. It is in a great location with excellent swimming and snorkeling, close to Wigamore Superstore for everything you need and Wi-Fi, several restaurants including the Café next door which had excellent food, Vaima, and Yellow Hibiscus nearby. There are two units separated by a large deck. I was in Unit 1 which has the best view.... More

Our third time back to Vai Villas and as before just a fantastic place to chill out and have a great relax. Again thanks to Alese for looking after us so well and keeping the whole place beautifully maintained. Thank you Nooroa, we will be back again.

My wife and I stayed in Villa #1. As others have said, the location is great. There are restaurants, Wigmores superstore, coffee shop, DVD rental, etc., all within a short walking distance. Despite that, we really didn't notice any street noise. The villa itself was perfect. Nicely equipped kitchen, BBQ outside,a comfortable bed, and very clean. The service was amazing.... More

We stayed in the larger beach house for a family break and it was excellent. Lots of room, great for self catering and the location was great with wigmores just over the road. Lovely bit of the beach with good snorkelling. Nooroa was easy to deal with when making the booking and alesi was a treat. The only somewhat negative... More

We were fortunate enough to have our wedding ceremony and reception here and we certainly were not disappointed. Upon arrival we were greeted by Lesi who made sure we were looked after throughout our stay. The Villas and the section itself were immaculate and had everything you needed. If you are looking for a beautiful private wedding venue where you... More

Villas located in a great location, next to a supermarket, a dvd rental (in case it rains) and a nice restaurant, a cafe, a rental for cars. The lady taking care of the place was lovely.

We stayed at Vai Villas Beach House for 7 nights. The house was clean and comfortable. Rooms were bright and airy and having two bathrooms was great. Alesi was an absolute gem. If we left dishes on the bench, we would turn our back and they would be washed and dried. She sourced lemons for me and regularly serviced the... More
