Wakaya Club & Spa Receives a Full Renovation Makeover.
Come discover the private Island of Wakaya, A new leadership team has brought the iconic Wakaya Spa and Club back to life with elegance, luxury and sophistication through its redesign, cuisine and amenities.
After Fiji experienced a tropical storm in 2016 and a change in the management of the Island, we decided to seize the opportunity to do extensive renovations to the iconic resort. We focused on improving our accommodations, dining options, and grounds, and broadening our list of activities.
Today, Wakaya Club & Spa offers a one of a kind private island experience surrounded by some of the most pristine beauty nature has to offer, a rich culture embraced by our warm-hearted community, exquisite cuisine and an abundance of luxury providing the ultimate sanctuary for our guests.
Embracing a Unique Opportunity
Among the most eye-catching of the resort’s renovations is the redesigned landscaping, which incorporates a series of verdant Fijian gardens and dense groves of native plant life. In addition to providing colorful beauty and aroma, the landscaping provides privacy to our guest bures (freestanding Fijian structures), offering our guest suites both a private garden down to the beach and a private rear reading garden.
Each of our newly renovated bures provide an indoor-outdoor experience embracing the beauty of Fiji’s natural environment as well as ensuring all of the lavish comforts of the indoors. Each bure boasts cathedral ceilings, King-size beds with 100% cotton sheets, open-air lava rock showers, separate living rooms and relaxing decks on either side.
Many updated touches are showcased in our two deluxe bures: The Governor’s Bure, a 2,400-square-foot villa with a Jacuzzi bathtub, fine Italian sheets, and a secluded garden with a waterfall; and the Ambassador’s Bure, a two-bedroom oceanfront retreat with a full kitchen, living room and a private two-room spa outfitted with a lanai and a plunge pool.
In addition to our bures, we are proud to offer two private homes: Vale’O “House in the Clouds”, a lavish 12,000-square-foot, three bedroom home which sits on 16 lush acres and offers a host of luxuries: splendid ocean views, a rock-rimmed pool with a waterfall and a Jacuzzi, a night-lit tennis court, and the services of a personal chef and an on-call driver.
Finally, for those times when extraordinary luxury is a must, we’re proud to offer Seqa Na Leqa villa, with a state-of-the-art kitchen, ample living space, a master wing, with separate his and her bathrooms, dressing rooms and massage rooms joined by a spa pool. Also included is a private guest suite and a one hundred foot infinity-edge pool on the ocean’s edge.
We owe our nature-inspired look to Mexican designer Bibiana Huber, who helped us incorporate timber from trees downed by the cyclone and volcanic rock from around the island into the architectural elements and furniture. We spared no expense on the upgrade—throughout our resort, guests will notice elegant details and modern touches. The transformation is truly remarkable.
Breathing New Life Into Our Slice of Paradise
It’s not just the accommodations and grounds at Wakaya Club & Spa that have gotten a facelift. Our restaurant’s menu has also been reinvigorated, thanks to the efforts of award-winning Executive Chef Marielle Hajj. With extensive culinary expertise and multicultural roots, Marielle takes our menu to the next level, always pushing epicurean boundaries with the freshest, most delectable creations.
Fun activities are a must on any relaxing getaway, so we’ve added even more options to the list. Previous guests know the thrill of snorkeling or scuba diving in the healthy reefs just offshore, but now they can also make use of paddle boards, Hobie Cats, clear-bottom kayaks and pedal boats. Even our recreation room offers an upgraded experience, as it’s now outfitted with new books, games, and a flat-screen TV.
Active types will enjoy our professionally designed golf course, our fully equipped gymnasium, and our hiking and running trails. To help guests experience the splendor of the surrounding landscape, we can arrange day trips such as helicopter tours, fishing trips, day trips to nearby islands, and more.
And, of course, we highly recommend that all of our guests make time to savor our private island’s jaw-dropping beaches, with diamond-white sand and water as warm as a bath. Wander in any direction and you’ll come to a pristine stretch of coast you can claim for a day of carefree sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, or simply relaxing in the shade.
