Fodor's Expert Review Octopus Resort
Waya, Western, Fiji
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 bure 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 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.
