Somewhere, in the heart of the enchanting South Pacific, Fiji’s 333 sun-kissed islands of palm-fringed golden beaches, thunderous waterfalls and jungle-clad mountains beckon.
An incredible range of luxury accommodation hidden in remote, idyllic pockets of these beautiful islands put paradise at your doorstep. Intimate ‘bures’ tucked away in lush gardens, plush overwater bungalows and spacious private villas with jaw-dropping panoramic ocean views all compete to give you the ultimate romantic escape. With their mix of cultural décor, modern amenities, outdoor rock showers and private plunge pools, these tropical sanctuaries exude effortless island chic. Relax with a book, sunbathe by the pool or indulge in a decadent massage and spa treatment while dedicated staff cater to your every whim.
Away from your little patch of paradise, there is a diverse range of activities to keep you occupied. Head inland and swim cool waterfall-fed pools, raft stunning river gorges or hike through native forest and discover long-abandoned hilltop forts that hint at Fiji’s mysterious past. Our islands are an aquatic playground, where you can parasail, kayak, water-ski and surf exhilarating world-class breaks like ‘Namotu Left’ and ‘Cloudbreak’. Fiji’s coral reefs are legendary so don some snorkels or dive the deep blue and discover why sites like the ‘Rainbow Reef’ and the ‘Great White Wall’ are some of the best in the world! For the ultimate extravagance, take a scenic helicopter ride or luxury yacht charter to a secluded beach for a romantic private picnic. Or, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, take the jet-ski!
A visit to a local village will introduce you to ancient customs like fire walking, ‘kava’ ceremonies and beautiful cultural handicraft. Fijians are some of the friendliest people on the planet and the warmth of the wide smiles and enthusiastic ‘Bula’ (hello) that greets you wherever you go, are small indications of the pure joy with which they embrace life.
In the gilded light of sunset, sample mouth-watering tapas, quaff delicious cocktails and watch your worries wander off as you bask in lively, hip-swinging island tunes. And later, under a glittering, star strewn sky, let the magic of the South Seas enthrall you while you dine on fine wine and exquisitely prepared cuisine – the perfect prelude to a deep, blissful sleep.
