Friday Escape: The Wakaya Club & Spa, Fiji



The Wakaya Club & Spa, Fiji From the Harper Collection:

"Extraordinary resort on a remote 2,200-acre private island. Emerald lagoons and shell-strewn beaches edge a forested and mountainous interior that teems with exotic birds. Ten air-conditioned cottage suites (bures) are set amid 200 acres of lawns; each unit features a rattan-furnished living room, oceanview porch and lavish bath with a soaking tub and open-air lava-rock shower. A restaurant pavilion, decorated with Melanesian artifacts, offers Fijian/Continental meals that emphasize fresh seafood, local game and organic produce. A recreation bure features the owner’s personal art collection, a sunken bar and game room; also communications center. Calm ocean swimming, freshwater grotto-like pool, couple’s spa, fitness pavilion, scuba/snorkeling excursions, deep-sea fishing, escorted nature hikes, tennis on night-lit Wimbledon-Tex court, golf on an informal 9-hole course winding through former coconut plantation (Ping clubs/caddies provided). Five-night minimum stay recommended. No children under age 16. Wakaya is reached from Nadi International Airport via the resort’s eight-seat Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft (40 minutes, $960 per couple round-trip)."
