Stunning scenery, lovely beach and a nice pool area with ample space. We spent a few nights here on our honeymoon and it was the perfect spot to unwind with a book in hand.
I'd recommend no more than 5 nights here, you'll get a taste of everything they offer in that time. If you're in Fiji for longer try out some of the other islands.
If you can stomach the thought of swimming through an underwater tunnel between caves, the cave trip is spectacular and was a highlight for me. My wife is a touch claustrophobic so she stayed at the resort and enjoyed a massage while I was out spelunking.
The food was pretty good for us as vegetarians but a couple of improvements could be made. While the dinner menu seems to be on a rotation (the lasagne was great and so were the vegetable pastries offered other nights during our stay) but the lunch menu was fixed the entire time we were there which meant we got pretty sick of spring rolls, though they were very tasty. A vege burger would be a welcome addition to the menu and easy for the kitchen staff to pull off, given the array of burgers already on the menu.
The absolute culinary highlight was buffet night as there were plenty of awesome vegetarian dishes available for this. Curry night was also a highlight of our food experience here.
Breakfast here in my opinion was spot on, plenty on offer for hot food and lovely pastries every day for the continental side of things. The filter coffee at BLBR was the best we had during our time in Fiji. I was particularly impressed with the quality of the eggs benedict, which stood up to some I've tried here in Wellington.
Our room was by most counts fantastic, but it was bloody hot! We were treated to air con at mainland hotels and were surprised not to have it at BLBR but I'm unsure of their energy requirements in such a remote location and understand that this may play into the choice not to offer air con in the villas. My hot tip (pardon the pun) to beat the heat would be to use only one sheet and to shove that sheet in the refrigerator all day until right before bed time during your stay here.
We're definitely keen to return to the Yasawa Islands and would absolutely consider another stay at BLBR.
