Nanuya Resort Yasawa Island Fiji is situated on the Blue Lagoon, and we stayed there just after a week at the Octopus resort.

We thought Nanuva was one of the most elegant small beach hotels we have stayed in as far as the South Pacific is concerned.

What really impressed us during our stay was the small touches, such as the plug in insect repellents in the room, especially as we had left ours at home!!

Another thing we love are nice toiletries in our room, and we were not disappointed at Nanuya, as the bures were modern, well equipped with ensuite facilities, towels, in fact all you would expect from a good resort. This of course included towels for the beach, and free water, which you can get from the bar.

The resort had everything needed for a great vacation, starting with the open air restaurant, serving superb food, and big platefuls. Fiji is not noted for its cuisine, but the food at Nanuya is delicious, with a simple continental breakfast to start the day. The breakfast is included, and then the menu for lunch is always the same, but the food is so good, you'll have no difficulty finding something you like every day. The dinner menu changes daily, and there is a good selection of starters and main courses for you to look forward to.

The biggest drawback was the invasion of backpacking daytrippers, who arrived on the beach, took the sunbeds, used the internet, and generally turned one of the best elegant small beach hotels that is Nanuya into a rugby scrum. Fortunately this only happened once, and we were mercifully free from too many daytrippers.

The beach as you would expect is quite out of this world, everything a South pacific beach should be, with wonderful blue/turquoise/green shades, and it was possible to swim out a little way for some quite good snorkelling.

Nanuya Resort is very well staffed, by cheerful smiling helpful people, who were never too obtrusive.

We'd definitely visit again, but next time we'd use Turtle airways and fly, turning a four and a half hour transfer into 30 minutes, so well worth the money!!

Nanuya Resort gave us one of the best tropical beach vacations possible
