Bula Dear Partners,
A very recent, unexpected and remarkable opportunity has arisen that will directly and substantially affect our island and its inhabitants. After very careful deliberation, and weighing the benefits to our local communities, Yasawa Island Resort have decided to not accept guests at the resort starting from 01 April, 2017 – 31 October, 2017. As such, the resort sincerely and regretfully advise, that they are no longer in a position to honor your bookings at Yasawa Island Resort and Spa during this period.
“At Yasawa Island Resort & Spa – Fiji, we place the utmost value in both you, our suppliers, as well as the strong relationships we have built, maintained, and strengthened with our local communities, who are such an integral part of our company values and its ultimate success”
A film crew from Europe has had an unexpected cancellation of its shooting location. This production company, have requested to use Yasawa Island as its alternate location. It has been under great pressure and heartfelt requests from our local villages that has ultimately led to the resort’s very difficult decision.
“Apart from the 80 local staff members from nearby villages that Yasawa Island Resort & Spa is able to employ, the approximately one thousand other villagers of Yasawa live a simple subsistence life of fishing and farming. This unexpected opportunity is an unprecedented chance for them to obtain not only income from leasing their land, but also by receiving mass employment for the local population for an extended period of time. The commitment to our local communities and our ongoing sense of social responsibility is paramount in what we do at the Resort”
