Thinking of a family friendly holiday where the kids are entertained and the parents can be at ease? Here are five favourite Fiji resorts recommended by Helloworld agents that take care of the kids – without forgetting about the parents.
1. Castaway Island, Fiji
This four-star resort that originally opened in 1966 boasts a brand-new look following recent renovations. Step onto the 70-hectare private island in the Mamanucas and while away the days snorkelling and diving the coral reefs lying beneath the azure waters, swimming on the safe beaches or nosing around the bushwalking trails. The next-level kids’ club offers all kinds of delights, from ice-cream-eating competitions to sandcastle building and treasure hunts. The shallow kids’ pool features a waterfall while the adult pool comes with a swim-up bar. Cheers!
2. Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort
Parents rave about this 25-bure luxury resort overlooking Savusavu Bay on the northern island of Vanua Levu for good reason: the tariff includes a dawn-to-dusk nanny service along with the incredible Bula Club for Kids. This adventure-filled haven features a flying fox, trampoline, treehouse and two pools with waterslides. Kids can also head out in a glass-bottom boat with a marine biologist or find a new playmate at the local school. Parents can take advantage of the club to head out on their own aquatic adventures.
3. Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort
Want to holiday on the mainland of Viti Levu? Check in to Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort along the famed Coral Coast. The 16-hectare resort features a vast lagoon pool, along with two kids’ clubs and a teen program while a nanny service is available for babies aged more than six months. If you need peace and quiet, point yourself towards one of the resort’s five adult-only zones.
4. Toberua Island Resort
Want to escape the hordes and enjoy a Fijian island that’s a little off the beaten track? Toberua, a 1.5-hectare idyll lying off the coast from the capital of Suva, feels like you’re stepping into a traditional village. Settle in to one of the 16 traditional waterfront bures and throw away your clocks – you’ll know it’s mealtime when you hear the beating drum. Babysitters and nannies are also available.
5. Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa
Families love this 442-room resort, sprawled over 44 hectares of private island lying just off the coast of Viti Levu, for its extensive range of activities. Try banana boat rides, lawn bowls, crab racing or simply go for a snorkel in the aquarium-like lagoon. Kids can also head to the Little Chief’s Club to hang out with other pint-sized holidaymakers.
