The resort itself is situated on 10 acres of natural beachfront rainforest, has a tidal river dividing the property and our bures are traditionally built by the local Fijians.

Dining is a casual affair with international, simple yet sumptuous meals that are carb-loaded and ensure you have enough energy for daily activities at the resort such as diving, snorkelling, sea kayaking, visiting the local waterfalls, going hiking to "The Big Tree", a 400-year old tree just north of the property and just wandering the beaches collecting shells and enjoying a relaxing time on Fiji's Natural Treasure, Kadavu Island.

The people of Kadavu Island are wonderful, friendly and accommodating and only too happy to take you to visit their home villages and take part of the dancing and kava ceremonies that are held continually in a celebration of life.

We're sure you won't be disappointed with Waisalima Beach Resort & Dive Centre.

We are a simple resort with budget facilities, a fantastic location given that we're located right near the Great Astrolabe Reef, which has some of the World's best diving and we have our own home reef which is located only a few metres offshore from the front door of your beachfront bures.

If you've been thinking of checking out Fiji, think, "relaxing, secluded and friendly" and you've discovered Waisalima.

We look forward to entertaining you soon and sharing the wonderful Fijian culture of Waisalima Beach Resort & Dive Centre and Kadavu Island!

Room types

All of our bures are built by the local Fijians in traditional fashion, have either floorboards or tiled floors and large windows that catch the onshore breeze and keep them cool.

The Ensuite Beachfront Bures are larger and more spacious than the Standard Beachfront Bures and have private facilities whilst the Standard Beachfront Bures are slightly smaller and have shared facilities via a toilet & shower block.

Contact

Waisalima Beach Resort & Dive Centre is approximately 1 hour from the local airport on Kadavu Island (Vunisea) or alternately, you can take one of the two ferries that travel to Kavala Bay each week from Suva.

You can book flights via Air Pacific/Pacific Sun Airlines and flights are daily.

You will see some of the most amazing reefs on your journey from the airport as well as some of the natural beauty and rugged coastline of Kadavu Island.

If you're lucky, you may also see Skipjacks and Dolphins on your way to and from the airport as they often swim along in the shallow areas of the Great Astrolabe Reef; truly an experience.
