Wakaya Club

 

 

The Wakaya Club fulfills the great South Pacific romantic legend. The stress and urgency of modern life fades away as you lounge in one of only nine beach-front Bures - authentic Fijian thatched roof cottages. Stroll in the surf at sunset, take a tranquil walk through the forest, alive with deer, wild horses and all manner of colorful, exotic flora and fauna. Or take in a challenging round of golf, tennis or scuba diving before an elegant gourmet dinner prepared by one of the four chefs.  (Adults only 16+)

 

Guest lodging at Wakaya is limited to just nine traditional Fijian cottages called “Bures.” Under the thatched roof you’ll find airy, high-pitched ceilings, fanciful hand woven bamboo wall covering and gleaming yaka plank floors. Stretch out on a four-poster king-size bamboo bed in an elegantly appointed bedroom. 

Vale O is a three-bedroom island estate divided into three pavilions. It houses from one to three couples and includes a personal kitchen and laundry staff, your own personal chef and an on-call driver. 


The bures interconnecting living room features inviting island-style furnishings, including a full wet-bar stocked daily with spirits, soft drinks, delicious world-famous FIJI water and fresh local fruits and juices. Relax under gently spinning paddle fans to eclectic music on the CD stereo, or browse through a library of distinctive hardcover books. 

Soak luxuriantly in an oversized tub in the modern bathroom, which also features a separate shower and bidet. Fluffy cotton robes and towels and distinctive Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries complete the extravagance. 

 

 

FACILITIES:

Wakaya’s beauty extends far beyond its surface from soaring rocky cliffs to the depths of the azure Pacific, bursting with colorful living coral reefs and exotic aquatic creatures. Venture out in Wakaya’s glass-bottomed boat, or strap on a snorkel and fins to connect directly with this underwater beauty.

You may choose to embark on an archaeological nature walk through Wakaya’s lush forest, where you’ll soak in the breathtaking flora and experience Wakaya’s wildlife -wild horses, deer, feral pigs and exotic birds. You’ll visit “Chieftain’s Leap” - where native Wakayans leapt to their deaths rather than face capture by invading warriors. 

Back at the Club, you can try your hand on our challenging nine-hole golf course that snakes its way through a 19th Century coconut grove. 

Relax afterwards in Wakaya’s tropical pool, as water gently trickles from a waterfall, or with a restorative "East meets West" massage in our spa.

Try a match on our championship “David Niven” croquet court - named in honor of Wakaya's owner David Gilmour’s friend and playing partner. There is even a boules court for those familiar with this sociable European sport. Swing a racket on the lighted, Wimbledon-Tex championship tennis court.
Beyond the reef are even greater wonders to explore with scuba gear - provided by Wakaya Club. These protected waters are some of the clearest, most abundant on earth. Or hop on board our sport fishing boat as our expert guides lead you in search of the “big one.” 

All Inclusive: 
Rates include all meals, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, two scuba tank dives per person per day, and the use of all sporting facilities and equipment, including golf, tennis, snorkeling, and professional croquet. (Deep-sea fishing and massage not included.) 

 

 

Wakaya Club’s four chefs and two pastry chefs flex their creative muscles for you, with delectable gourmet Fijian, Indian, Chinese and Continental delicacies, featuring local game, seafood and native fruits and vegetables from Wakaya’s own organic gardens. Wonderfully unique salads and soups, fresh, crusty breads and sumptuous main dishes and desserts are graciously presented with an artist’s flair. 

Dine alfresco in the exquisite Palm Grove pavilion, with its soaring 60-foot timbered pitched ceiling, and decorated with ancestral war clubs and other island artifacts, flagstone floors, carved wood and bamboo, and nautical art. Descend to the sunken bar to sip a tropical beverage or nibble on sushi and hors d’oeuvres before dinner. 

Once each week you’ll enjoy a  meke - a pageant of traditional Fijian song and dance, followed by a lovo feast of seafood, chicken, lamb and slow-roasted pig, wrapped in banana leaves and cooked over hot stones buried in the ground. The evening is capped off by a traditional “kava” ceremony, where you share this national drink of Fiji.
