A cosmopolitan Italian couple built this resort as an escape for the "stressed" and, with just nine romantically appointed bures fringing a quintessential Yasawa shore, couples are certain to recover the love lost during the daily grind. When guests aren't relaxing on their daybeds, lounge chairs, or hammocks (Beachfront bures have all three), they can take guided snorkeling tours, island-hop, dive with a local operator, visit a village, fish, take guided walks, kayak, or hike to hilltops. All bures have 26-foot ceilings, king-size beds, dual stone sinks, and outdoor daybeds. Beachfronts are well-spaced with high bamboo borders; each has a wall of French doors opening onto a thatch-covered deck just shy of the sand and the lagoon. The larger Grand Bures are built on rocky outcrops on a separate bay, have large tubs in their living rooms, and steps leading down to the beach. Á la carte menus feature reasonably priced Mediterranean fare and a meal plan is also available.
