Yasawa Resort and Spa, Fiji: Entire island resort available for 'isolation in paradise'

A guest takeover of the friendly rather than hostile kind is now possible for travellers eyeing off Fiji for their next holiday.

Yasawa Resort and Spa is now available for exclusive use from one to 38 guests on the 2800 hectare island whose resort is dotted with traditionally thatched bures steps from a white-sand beach.

Located off the coast of the main Island of Viti Levu in the Yasawa group the resort's "Isolate in Paradise" buyout costs $US14,000 ($19,506) a night with a minimum three-night stay.

The price tag includes accommodation in 18 beachfront bures, all meals and snacks for up to 38 guests, private picnics on a choice of 11 white sand beaches and boat snorkel trips including a visit to the caves where 1980s movie The Blue Lagoon starring Brooke Shields was filmed.

Guests can dine at the new al fresco area with a 180-degree view of the ocean, beachside, at the horizon pool or in the privacy of a beach hut and the poolside Manasa's Bar, named after a long-time resort employee, serves cocktails from dawn to dusk.

Meanwhile Baravi Spa offers ocean view massages and uses black volcanic pebbles in its hot rocks therapies.

Other resort activities include sea kayaking, boating on a catamaran, stand up paddle boarding and tennis.

Beyond the resort guests can visit Bukama Village, meet the chief and take part in a kava ceremony, the ceremonial drink of Fiji, hear the school choir sing and watch a ceremonial dance.

The resort is 30 minutes by private air transfer and inaccessible to other travellers from Nadi International Airport
