The Wakaya Club & Spa offers unrivaled luxury in one of the most secluded corners of the South Pacific
To find a piece of paradise on earth, look no further than 17.65° South and 179.02° East. The coordinates lead to a privately owned island of Wakaya in Fiji, home to The Wakaya Club & Spa. Spread across the island’s 2,200 acres are ten Fijian cottage suites, guaranteeing a private and restful holiday.
Those suites are known as bures (say it with me, “boo-rays,”) and are outfitted with four-poster king size beds, Tibetan rugs, woven bamboo wall coverings, yaka timber flooring and soaring cathedral ceilings. Bathrooms have lava rock outdoor showers, soaking tubs and his and her vanities. Bures also come with two covered outdoor decks, private gardens and hammocks conveniently pre-strung between coconut palms. What they don’t come with are televisions or telephones, except for an intercom to contact Reception. The purpose at The Wakaya Club & Spa is to relax in nature and forget about distractions back home, (well, almost- Internet is available in each bure.)
To fill the days and nights, The Wakaya Club & Spa offers water activities like snorkeling and scuba diving, fishing, sea kayaking and paddle boarding. On dry land there’s golf, tennis, croquet, yoga and a fully-outfitted fitness center. The resort is fully inclusive, meaning these activities as well as meals and drinks are already added into the price.
When it comes to food and beverages, the chefs have designed a menu with a focus on organically grown and produced ingredients. For example, breakfast might include tropical island fruits and eggs direct from Wakaya-raised chickens. A lunch order could be the catch of the day severed atop of micro greens and dinner might consist of organic game. A wine menu of regional vintages is available as well as cocktails, teas and juices.
Breeze Spa boasts a salt water, water shiatsu plunge pool that overlooks a private lagoon. Services focus on the body, feet, hands and face and utilize Pure Fiji products. While the price of treatments is not included in the daily room rate, a tropical foot-bathing ritual preceding each one is complimentary.
