By far the best resort I stayed in on the Yasawa's, indeed in Fiji, in fact in all my trip around the globe. The resort is not too big, not too small. A good mix of singles and couples, some families or parts thereof. Food was excellent, up with the very best, but food plan was not expensive at all. Welcome was great and we were spoilt until we left. Lots of free local activities, basket weaving, 101 things to do with a coconut! tree climbing.... all delivered with the Fijian smile you become accostumed to whilst on the resort. Good bar, stays open till 1am, and powered site 24 hours (some are not). The snorkelling is on par with that of Great Barrier reef, lots of fish, and got to see a shark on the last day (if you go out deep enough). Snorkelling is easy, just off the beach. Owned by a very nice Swedish lady who started small and has grown to a very manageable size. Bures were clean and eating areas very socialable, good for both couples and people travelling alone, did I say the food was excellent, a la carte with choices - spoilt!!. I was on Beachcomber, LongBeach, Gold Coast and Manataray, and I'd rate Mantaray well ahead of all the rest. Beachcomber was lowder and more fun at night (disco's etc) - but for a lazy few days in total bliss head to Mantary - I'll be back!!
The only downside - The dive gear is exceelent for day dives, but I was disappointed with night dives. A lazy "walk up the beach and drift" dive. They do need to invest a small amount in their night dive equipment lamps etc...
Hope to see them again,
