Nanuya Island Resort

Nanuya Lailai, Western, Fiji

A rare mid-range option in the Yasawas, Nanuya offers 17 spacious, comfortable accommodations, good food, and wonderfully personable staff. There is good snorkeling off the beach, and highly personalized diving, fishing, kayaking, and cave-swimming a 45-minute ride north. Yes, you're sharing the "Blue Lagoon" with the lavish Turtle Island resort for a fraction of the price. The 180-square-foot Deluxe Villas each have a queen- and two single beds and pretty stone-wall semi-outdoor showers, while the interconnecting Superior Villas have an aboveground spa. The cheaper Traditional Tree Houses are set into the hills and sleep two in a double or two single beds. Continental breakfast is included; there's an all-day dining menu and the numerous à la carte dinner options might include grilled-beef fillet with salad, fries, and hollandaise sauce or pan-seared hapuku on sun-dried tomatoes, bok choy, and green tea noodles.
