59. Yasawa Island Resort & Spa, Fiji

Ranked #59 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.

“You’ve got to pay to escape the masses of Aussies in Fiji, but once you arrive at Yasawa Island Resort you’ll have ridiculous amounts of Fijian paradise all to yourselves.” Craig Tansley

All you need is swimmers and a sarong. Palm-cloaked Yasawa Island is the original tropical Eden, a getaway-from-it-all dreamscape. Ocean breeze drifts through plantation shutters.

Picnic on a deserted beach, swim in the blue lagoon, soak up some spa treatments or just unfurl in a palm-shaded hammock.

And, of course, feast on just-caught seafood wherever you please – beach, bure or under the stars.

Size 18 bures
