Are you looking for a perfect hideaway – a place where you are truly a million miles away from it all? I might just have the place for you:
The Wakaya Club & Spa is a luxury private island resort unlike any other in the world. This serene retreat in Fiji offers gracious living, sophisticated, international cuisine and unparalleled leisure opportunities – including some of the finest scuba diving and snorkeling, available just minutes away from your accommodations – in one of the most secluded and pristine corners of the South Pacific.
This gem is situated on the Western leeward side of Wakaya Island, Fiji – a private 2,200 acre tropical idyll that is one of 333 islands that comprise the Fiji archipelago. Wakaya Island has the benefit of being surrounded by a protected coral reef, and boasts azure lagoons, majestic cliffs and powder white sand beaches.
From the moment you arrive via Wakaya’s own Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft, and greeted by warm and friendly Fijian staff, you are completely immersed in the peace and tranquility of island life – Welcome to Paradise on Earth!
Whenever guests return from the Wakaya Club & Spa they cite the warmth and spirit of the staff as the heart and soul of their time on Wakaya. A highly skilled and cordial crew awaits you, acclaimed for their friendly yet unobtrusive service. With a maximum occupancy of 26 guests and a staff to guest ratio of 12 to 1 for each guest couple, rest assured that every need will be graciously satisfied, almost before you think of it.
The people of the Wakaya Club are the treasure of the island — your personal connection to Fijian culture. Long after your tan has faded, you will remember the friends you made here, and the power of the Wakayan smile.
A trip to Wakaya is an adventure steeped in the pleasures of cross-cultural experience. Wakaya’s owners work closely with village leaders to create opportunities for guests to observe and take part in authentic Fijian ceremonies and traditions. Without exception, guests come away from these experiences with a profound respect for Fijian values and the Wakayans’ family-centered lifestyle.
While on Wakaya you’ll have a lot to discover.
Learn Fiji legends through traditional songs and dance led by “Josaia,” the former leader of Fiji’s National Dance Troupe, participate in a Kava Ceremony, the traditional drink of Fiji or let the Wakaya’s Village Choir awaken your soul at Sunday morning services.
The island also offers fascinating archaeological sites. Wakaya has been inhabited since at least 700 BC and digs have been conducted by a Fulbright scholar from UCLA. Some of the artifacts are on view in Rumu Lagilagi, the recreation room next to Reception, which houses David Gilmour’s, the founder of this amazing resort, personal collection of 19th century lithographs, maps and engravings.
Korolevu, which means “large village” in Fijian, is the summit of the island and the site of early Fijian fortification. With its ancient banyan trees, it is a magical place of great spiritual energy. A visit will give you an appreciation for the breadth, scope and diversity of this island paradise. Chieftain’s Leap is another beautiful site, where Peregrine falcons nest in the cliff. It has quite a story behind it which a member of our staff will happily explain on a guided nature tour.
