If you’re looking for a luxurious, relaxing, peaceful retreat, then you don’t have to look further than Fiji.
This paradise nation in the South Pacific is scattered with different islands and landscapes, ranging from tiny white-sand beaches perfect for snorkelling to lush mountains where waterfalls cascade down the cliffs.
No matter what kind of trip you’re looking for, Fiji will deliver. At Travel Nation, we are Fiji experts – here are our favourite luxury Fiji resorts.
This truly romantic resort is made so special by the warm Fijian hospitality and caring attention to detail from all of the staff. Modern meets traditional in the beautiful bures, with tropical outdoor showers and four poster beds that reveal beautiful views over the ocean. Share a bottle of champagne in your private pool, soak up the views and succumb to feeling totally relaxed.
Rise at dawn to watch the sun rise over the calm ocean, as fruit bats chatter overhead as they come home to roost. Spend an afternoon in the spa, indulging in the relaxing treatments offered in the tropical gardens and snorkelling in the peaceful waters, looking for colourful fish and coral beneath the waves.
Food is a big part of a stay at Tokoriki Island Resort – why not book in to enjoy a special meal at the Oishii Teppanyaki, where you’ll watch your food prepared in the intimate restaurant, surrounded by lily ponds and tropical plants. The staff at Tokoriki are wonderful, looking after your every need and greeting you as you wander through the lush grounds. Their warmth is such a highlight of a visit to this luxurious hotel.
Likuliku Lagoon Resort is a haven of luxury. For adults only, this wilderness island retreat is the only resort in Fiji with authentic over water-bures, in a natural ocean lagoon, surrounded by a protected marine sanctuary. You’ll be welcomed by singing staff members and settle into your gorgeous over-water bungalow.
Spend your time exploring the lagoon, lazing on your deck or luxuriating in your separate bathing pavilion views from your grand bathtub. Enjoy your complimentary daily canapé plate from the chef and dive into the lagoon to enjoy the natural aquarium that dazzles beneath you.
Why not spoil yourself with a trip to ‘Tatadra Spa’. This luxurious and tranquil spa is set against lush, green slopes with stunning views of the lagoon. With many natural beauty and body treatments to choose from, you'll be able to enjoy ultimate indulgence!
If you head south from the main island you’ll come across the spectacular Kokomo Island, you can do as much or as little as you please. Turquoise waters will tempt you in immediately – you can snorkel, dive, kayak and surf in the crystalline ocean.
Take a glass-bottomed boat to view the colourful coral below the waves or head out on a romantic sunset cruise – the perfect way to end a beautiful day in Fiji. Relax with an early morning yoga session by the water or head to the spa for a luxurious couples massage.
You’ll also be able to experience the wonderful culture and famous hospitality of the Fijians. Take a tour of the local village where you can experience an authentic welcome ceremony, share kava with the village chief and learn about the traditional Fijian lifestyle. The Fijians will welcome you with open arms and hearts – you’ll never forget the experience you have in this beautiful nation.
Back at your villa you can enjoy private in-room dining, swim in your private pool and soak up the gorgeous ocean views from your sun-drenched garden. Depending on the time of year, you can watch the humpback whale migration as they pass right by Kokomo Island, or swim with majestic manta rays in the warm waters off the coast.
Off the south coast of Viti Levu, the main island of Fiji, you’ll find Royal Davui Island Resort. A romantic resort nestled among the palm trees in the spectacular Beqa Lagoon, Royal Davui is one of the most private places you’ll ever stay. The villas have beautiful plunge pools, perfect for relaxing as you soak up the sea breeze, with modern furnishings that blend perfectly with the authentic Fijian style.
During your time here you can enjoy a traditional kava ceremony, where you can learn more about the beauty of traditional Fijian culture, or head out for a beach picnic on a private sand cay. Take kayaks out to explore the azure waters, or tuck into a cooking class to taste some delicious Fijian seafood. Head for a walk around the island or even attend a village church service – what Royal Davui does so well is the perfect blend of luxurious comforts with friendly local tradition.
Off the east coast of Taveuni is the tiny island of Matangi. This gorgeous resort is set on a private island and is a truly unique little place. There’s so much to do, whether you want to relax and soak up the spectacular landscape or get out and explore.
Head out on a romantic picnic to Horseshoe Bay on the untouched western coast of Matangi island or snorkel with parrotfish and butterflyfish on the pristine reef just offshore. Take a kayak and head out to explore the water around the volcanic islands or try your hand at stand-up paddleboarding – the calm bays are the perfect place to learn.
If you want to explore further, there is a whole island to head out and discover. Hike through the lowland rainforest, look for native Orange Doves in the trees and wander along the coastal paths to watch the sun set into the ocean.
The most special rooms are the treehouses, up in the lush foliage of the rainforest. These unique rooms are perfect for couples looking for a romantic, private stay – soak in the hot tub, relax on the sun deck and listen to the sounds of the forest.
All meals are included, as well as a candlelit dinner on one of the evenings. We’ve also arranged a couples massage for you to enjoy during your stay.
Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort is an award-winning luxurious island paradise in Fiji. Discover the truly amazing resort experience — focusing on rest and relaxation, authentic cuisine and culture, and exploring the incredible secrets of nature and the local environment.
There is so much to do here, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Why not head off on a boat trip to go deep sea fishing, for tuna, Mahi mahi or marlin? Or if you’d rather stay on land, spend some time with one of the village elders, hearing traditional stories and ancient myths from the last 3,000 years.
Go paddleboarding on the perfectly clear water, kayak around the rugged coastline or snorkel among the pretty soft coral found just offshore. All of these activities are included, so your time here can be spent indulging in thrilling activities, all built into the cost of your trip.
If you want to go even further, you can head off on a dive. This is highly recommended as Jean Michael Cousteau is close to some of the most beautiful reefs in the world. Or, if you’re looking for a romantic adventure, try booking a private picnic on Naviavia Island, where you can relax on pristine white beaches and swim in the rippling ocean, before watching a scarlet sunset splash across the sky.
