Explore the resort
The resort’s restaurant serves a delicious and fresh variety of meals each day, starting with a complimentary continental breakfast. All of the food prepared here showcases local produce and sustainable seafood, with a focus on healthy living. Guests can also experience the famous Fijian ‘lovo’ - a style of underground cooking where food is wrapped in banana leaves and placed under hot coals buried below the sand. The pool bar serves a wide selection of wines, ice-cold local beers, soft drinks and cocktails with the resort’s private bay as a backdrop - the perfect place to relax after an action-packed day.
In addition to wellness services like yoga, Waidroka also provides an on-call massage and spa service that can be enjoyed in the privacy of your own room or in a water-front massage bure. A range of cultural activities can also be arranged by the resort, including local language lessons, weaving, and coconut opening, while the more adventurous can try their hand at kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and exploration of the resort’s mangroves and rainforest. The waters around Waidroka are also home to some of Fiji’s best surf breaks, including the world-famous Frigates Passage - a magical long-peeling reef break over 20-kilometres out in the pacific ocean.
