The best budget resort west of the mainland is seated on dreamy Likuliku Bay in the southern Yasawas, and doesn't act its price. The cheapest bures have queen-size beds and balconies and even dormers get bath and beach towels. Hiking, hand-line fishing, village visits, and island-hopping are offered each week and evening activities include mekes, crab races, beachside party games, and a weekly film-showing. Five great-value accommodation options range from a well-maintained nonbunked 15-bed dorm (rare for Fiji) to two beachfront rooms with open-air bathrooms on the sand, to an air-conditioned room in a three-bedroom lodge. A mandatory F$44 per day meal plan entails three-course dinners emphasizing seafood in traditional dishes served with local vegetables; lunch usually includes sandwiches and pizzas. There are also a kids' menu, youngster activities, and babysitters on-call.
