Botaira Resort is located on the largest island in the beautiful Yasawa Group, Naviti Island. Botaira is on the western side of Naviti Island which means every night you can watch gorgeous sunsets while sipping cocktails on the beachfront bar deck!

Botaira is 20 mins by road from Nadi Airport to Denarau Marina, then 3 hours on the Yasawa Flyer - a comfortable, air-conditioned, high-speed 25 metre catamaran which leaves daily from Denarau at 8.30am. You arrive at Botaira just in time to step ashore, settle in then enjoy lunch.

Private Bure Accommodation

For your privacy and pleasure, Botaira Resort has only 11 spacious contemporary Fijian style bures with modern en suite facilities sited on an absolute beachfront location.

Each beachfront bure at Botaira Resort has been recently fully refurbished. They are of traditional construction with thatched roofs, local timber & artwork. The walls have large screened louver windows while the floor is of tile or varnished timber.

Your private bure is spacious and airy with a queen bed plus a single day bed, lounge chairs, ceiling fan, fridge, a storage wardrobe and drawers. Plus outside is your own furnished deck.

The bathroom features a tiled shower, hot and cold water, 230 volt power and flush toilet. Fluffy bath towels and toiletries are provided.

Daily maid service is by friendly Fijian staff who will happily attend to your needs to ensure that your bure is clean and comfortable with attention to detail normally found in a quality hotel. Note: power is locally generated and shuts down between 2 and 6.30am.


Village Trip

The local village is approximately 40 minutes walk and takes in spectacular views of the resort and the island. If you do not think you could handle the walk then Botaira Resort staff will take you on the 30 minute boat trip around to the village for a small charge. You will be fascinated with the walk through the local village, meeting the people and children, seeing how they live, work and play. Of particular interest is the local church with its detailed carvings and the local school. A craft market is also available on the island for you to pick up some Fijian souvenirs.

Eco Garden Tour

A Botaira staff member will give you a personal guided tour of a the resort vege garden which is exactly like a typical village plantation giving a great insight to life on the island and how the different types of local fruit and vegetables grow.

Ridge Walk

The Ridge Walk takes approximately 35 minutes and is a steady climb to a peak that offers panoramic views of Naviti Island plus the rest of the Yasawas group. A fascinating walk that is well worth the effort. This is also an organized activity if you prefer to have a local guide with you.

Spear Throwing

A special organized activity at Botaira is the spear throwing competition. Learn how the locals accurately throw spears some distance and then try it for yourself, competing against others at the resort. This activity includes embarrassment, fun and laughter.

Beach Volleyball

What else can you do on a pristine white beach than play volleyball! Enjoy a game by yourselves or contribute to the organized competition and have fun with others at the resort.

Cocktail Hour

At sunset, from 5.30-6.30pm is Happy Hour. Hopefully you have enough energy to enjoy special Botaira cocktails on the deck, prepared by your friendly barman, Knox!


There is excellent swimming in front of the resort with a pontoon (swimming raft) anchored in the bay for you to rest on or dive off.


Take five steps into the water, put your flippers and snorkel on and then be utterly amazed at the marvelous coral reef that is right on the doorstep of Botaira Resort. The bay has wonderful coral and myriads of colourful tropical fish for you to gaze at and play with for hours on end. It is really like swimming in a tropical fish tank! Snorkeling gear is available free to guests and for hire to day visitors.


Kayaks and surf kayaks are always available for a bit of recreational fun. Great for either reef inspection and/or reef surfing… or just to potter around the bay.

Manta Rays

There is nothing more thrilling in life than to experience wildlife in it's own element, and that is exactly what swimming with the Manta Rays is like. The trip involves a short boat ride to Manta Ray Passage, either the early morning or late afternoon. The Manta Ray season is typically in June and July, although some lucky guests may get to see them during May. Swimming with these massive sea creatures is a must do activity. Please Note: Manta Rays are harmless; they do not have the lethal barbs that Sting Rays have. Small charges may apply for the boat trip.

Scuba Diving

World-class diving with our outstanding operator, Reef Safari, is available from the resort. They offer everything for Introductory diving instruction for beginners through to Advanced Open Water Certification courses for experienced divers. This is the experience of a lifetime. Please ask a Botaira staff member if you would like us to arrange a diving trip for you.
