A forty minute turboprop flight from Fiji lies the private island retreat that is the Wakaya Club.
This intimate hotel consists of just ten rooms dotted around the lush tropical gardens covering just ten per cent of the island - the rest has been left very much as is, and is home to deer, goats and pigs who occasionally end up on the menu.
The spacious rooms are a study in under-stated elegance, with separate bedroom and sitting room decorated in the traditional Fijian style of high ceilings, woven walls and wooden floors. The bathrooms have a bath and an external shower.
Activities include - of course - diving and snorkelling but there is also a nine-hole golf course, tennis, spa and croquet available.
Why we love it
One particularly nice touch is that your room is reserved for the days before you arrive and after you leave, so there are no concerns about early check-ins or late check-outs for international flights.
