Frequently Asked Questions

Where and when do I check in?

If you have booked a Welcome Pack, you'll be met with a warm 'bula' by our friendly transfer representative at Nadi International Airport.

Our main check-in counter is situated at the passenger terminal at Port Denarau, a large building on the waterfront, which leads out to the marina. Taxi and coach services can take you directly to the terminal. Upon entry to the terminal, you'll see the South Sea Cruises & Awesome Adventures Fiji check-in desk and be greeted by our friendly staff who will direct you to board your vessel and will arrange the transportation of your luggage.

Yes, you can speed things up and avoid the queues at the morning departure by checking in at Port Denarau the day prior to your departure, any time after 10:30 am. Your booking will be re-confirmed and you can be checked in so you can board your vessel the next day.

Most of the resorts in the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands source the majority of their staff from the surrounding local villages and islands. Just about every resort is beachfront, with coral lagoons on the doorstep. The resorts range in style from mid-level resorts to modern properties with a higher standard of accommodation and amenities. This accommodates for travellers with different tastes and budgets. One thing all these resorts have in common is they are all set in stunning locations.

There is so much to choose from and to help you make your decision on where to stay. The resorts we offer have a range of room types from simple dorms through to beachfront luxury bures which means they cater for a very wide range of budgets.

Note: The resorts are not owned by Awesome Adventures Fiji and standards vary from property to property. We do monitor the resorts and have our staff visiting regularly to ensure everything is as it should be. Some of the properties run on power generators therefore, the voltage supplied might not be as strong and some devices may not operate effectively.

Our Resorts

  • Resort-style properties
  • Modern with a high standard of accommodation and amenities
  • Meals are not included in the nightly rate; instead, you buy a daily meal plan either when booking or at check-in
  • Meals can include multiple courses with a varied selection of local and international dishes
  • All include free drinking water

Eating at the resort you're staying at is your only choice - there are no restaurants around the corner. 

Some countries require a visa to visit Fiji. Please visit the Fiji Travel website for more information. 

Yes. It is an essential condition of travelling with Awesome Adventures Fiji that you have valid travel insurance.

There are no medical facilities in the Yasawa Islands so if any medical problem arises you will need to return to Nadi. Sea and weather conditions can sometimes prevent travel on your booked dates as well.

Mealtime is generally very social and a fantastic way to experience the Fijian culture. The menus at each resort differ, with some à la carte and some buffet style. Fijian food is generally very tasty and includes delicious fresh fruit, fish, barbecue meat, and traditional fare, such as the melt-in-your-mouth marinated fish dish, kokoda.

Eating at the resort where you're staying is generally the only choice - there are no restaurants around the corner. The style of meals varies, but the general rule of thumb is the more upmarket the property, the better the dining experience you can expect. Having said that even the more basic resorts offer hearty, wholesome, tasty meals. 

All resorts seek to offer a mix of Fijian and European styles using fresh local produce.

We recommend vegetarians inform the resort on arrival.

All of our resorts have compulsory meal plans, some can be prepaid at the time of booking but more need to be paid at the resorts upon check-in in Fijian dollars. 

The currency is the Fijian dollar.

There are no banks in the Yasawa Islands so you'll need to plan ahead! The bank at Nadi International Airport is open 24 hours and cash machines are available at Nadi Airport, in Nadi town, Wailoaloa Beach and at Port Denarau.

A number of resorts in the Yasawa Islands do no accept cash so a credit/debit card is a must but it is still advisable to have some cash with you.


The electric current is 240 volts. Fiji has three-pin power outlets, which are identical to Australia and New Zealand.

Resorts in the islands have generators, so you'll have electricity from sunset to midnight and generally for the first part of the morning, however operating times can vary so please check with your resorts. 

Yes - culture is very important in the islands, so we ask you to respect a few practices upon entering any village.

  1. No hats or sunglasses are to be worn (please do take these with you as it can get hot, but please take care to remove them from your head when in the village).
  2. Ladies are required to have shoulders and knees covered, a sulu (sarong) is a great option to wear when visiting the village.

Please note that the above requests apply to villages, not resorts. Wearing swimwear, hats, sunglasses etc is completely acceptable at island resorts. 

Throughout the majority of the Mamanuca Islands and much of the Yasawa Islands there is 3G coverage so yes, most of the time your mobile phone will work but it is sometimes intermittant. 

Dorm’s (or Dormitories) are great for social travellers on a budget – these range from Dorm rooms with just 4 beds through to 32 beds and are a mixture of unisex or single-sex.  You will, of course, be sharing your sleeping space and bathrooms with other travellers but it’s a great way to keep the cost down and meet new people. 

Bures (Fijian word for Bungalow) are your own private Room or Bure, most of which include a private en suite – these do cost a bit more but this gives you your own private space.

Our baggage allowance is the same as most airlines. We carry the baggage at the rear of the vessel. There's limited space, so to be fair to everyone there's a limit to how much you can bring on board

- One carry-on bag which can weigh up to 7kg (15lbs)

- A standard item - usually a bag - weighs up to 25kg (50lb)

Please advise any dietary requirements at the time of booking. Please also reiterate these directly to each resort on arrival/check-in. Please remember that these island resorts are remote and their access to a wide range of foods is somewhat limited by deliveries and availablity, but the resorts will accommodate the best they can.
