News Flash: Fiji now rivals French Polynesia when it comes to luxurious escapes.
1. Overwater Paradise
Want to stay in paradise while enjoying a little overwater luxury? There’s no need to travel to Bora Bora in French Polynesia when Fiji has a stunning range of overwater bures (thatched bungalows). Likuliku Lagoon Resort is a couples-only haven featuring 10 bures strung out along the edge of a fringing reef. Sit on the deck to drink in views of this living aquarium or admire it from the privacy of your own bathtub. Or head to the spa to enjoy a hydrating bath in coconut milk.
2. Resort Retreat
Since 2017, you can also find overwater bures on Fiji’s mainland. The Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay, south of Nadi, is a family-friendly resort that invites couples to “check out of the ordinary” and into one of its overwater villas. Live a real-life Fijian fairytale in one of these villas that feature an unusual arched interior and offer views over the glittering lagoon.
3. Spa Sanctuary
Fiji’s northern region is home to Koro Sun Resort and Rainforest Spa – a sanctuary that’s surrounded by rainforest and perched at the edge of a private lagoon. There’s a wide choice of accommodation, including bures with private plunge pools and villas that include overwater living rooms with glass portholes embedded in the floor. When you’re ready to swim, clamber down your villa’s ladder straight into the crystal-clear water.
4. Island Escape
Head to Tokoriki Island, the northernmost island in Fiji’s Mamanuca archipelago, to find the Sheraton Tokoriki, which was refurbished in 2017. Among the 101 guestrooms and suites are 30 adults-only Tokoriki Retreats featuring private decks, plunge baths and stunning views across the Coral Sea to Tavua and Yanuya islands. When you’re hungry, head into Flying Fish restaurant, designed by Australian chef and TV personality Peter Kuruvita. There’s also an inviting beachfront infinity pool where you can lounge all day.
5. Family Friendly
Jump into a seaplane or helicopter at Nadi – and you can be at Vomo Island just 15 minutes later. This family-friendly resort in the Mamanuca Islands includes 28 villas and four luxurious holiday houses. Just before sunset, park the kids with the baby butler (yes!) and roam the 87-hectare island to find the adults-only The Rocks Bar perched on a volcanic nub on the island’s western side. Settle in, order a “rocktail” such as a coconut mojito, and watch the technicolour show unfold in the sky. Cheers!
