Fiji's islands are a truly seductive destination, seemingly tailor-made to fulfill your every romantic daydream. Whether you’re looking for a passion-filled escape with your loved one or a perfect honeymoon location, let us guide you around some of the best resorts Fiji has to offer for true romance.
There are plenty of Fiji resorts that entirely devote themselves to welcoming lovebirds with some serious island pampering, so you and your other half can enjoy all the private beaches, sandspit picnics and romantic sunsets you could dream of. Best of all, many Fijian resorts are small and intimate, some with fewer than 20 rooms, so you can really escape the crowds and make the most of your one-on-one time. Some resorts specialize in spas and wellness activities, while others offer an array of activities including scuba diving, river rafting and rainforest treks.
With these considerations, here are some of Fiji’s most romantic resorts where you can tuck a hibiscus flower behind an ear, grab a couple of cocktails, watch the Pacific sunset with someone special and truly get away from it all.
Likuliku Lagoon Resort
Many resorts can offer you a secluded beach, but Likuliku goes one step further with your own lagoon. Here on Malolo Island in the Mamanuca Island chain, you get more than just beachfront property; rather a series of traditional Fijian bures (thatched cottages) sits on stilts over the water, so the lap of the lagoon soothes you asleep and gently wakes you in the morning. If that’s not blissful enough, the resort’s luxurious Tatadra Spa can help you both unwind before considering some gentle activities, such as a short boat ride to Mociu Private Island for a swim and picnic, or snorkeling your way from your veranda to the lagoon's fringing reef together.
Tokoriki Island Resort
You know a resort is serious about delivering the dreamiest of vacations when they have a Romance Coordinator on staff to look after everything, from in-room champagne and flowers to arranging spa treatments. Tokoriki’s private beachfront villas, set in verdant tropical landscapes, come with outdoor showers and personal infinity pools, and face into the west for perfect views of romantic sunsets in the Mamanuca Islands. Intimate star- and candle-lit dinners come as standard, or for real extravagance, you can even book your own butler service. There’s also a luxury spa carved into the side of a mountain, with water gently cascading down its volcanic stone walls. The spa puts an emphasis on treatments for couples, so try a massage for two to leave you both feeling utterly relaxed in one of the most beautiful retreats in Fiji.
Matamanoa Island Resort
Occupying an entire island in the Mamanuca chain, Matamanoa Island Resort offers a truly grown-up experience. Stylish, sophisticated and peaceful, it features 33 beachfront bures and villas overlooking a blindingly white, soft-sand beach. Most villas have private pools and beaches just steps from the room. The fun-loving staff is renowned for its uniquely Fijian welcome and traditions; and the hillside spa, with its prime treetop location, is the perfect place to indulge in some island pampering. Couples can also arrange a champagne-fuelled island hopping experience or a trip to the nearby pottery village on Tavua Island.
Tropica Island Resort
Tropica is another peaceful sanctuary in the Mamanuca Islands, conveniently located just off Fiji’s mainland and easy to reach. Head to the gourmet restaurant to sample authentic Fijian cuisine, washed down with a glass or two of bubbly, or spend your time floating happily together in the 82ft infinity pool. That’s if you can bring yourself to leave your accommodation of course. There are 30 recently renovated bures, suites and rooms – all but the latter have outdoor showers, patios and cozy deck swings, ideal for whiling away many a romantic hour together.
Blue Lagoon Cruises
For something a little bit different, why not consider spending at least a portion of your vacation at sea? The 68-passenger, adults-only Fiji Princess meanders through the Mamanuca and Yasawa Island chains on multi-day trips. The highlight? How about when the crew positions the ship right beside the famous Blue Lagoon beach, and ties it off to a coconut tree as you have happy hour on shore and dine beneath the palms? The cruise company has exclusive use of the famous beach, giving guests the chance to make the most of its legendarily crystalline waters. Three-, four- and seven-night cruises depart from Port Denarau.
Yasawa Island Resort
How do lobster omelets for breakfast sound? Pretty enchanting? That’s just a taster of the gourmet meals (including private beach picnics) served up at Yasawa Island Resort. Set on a gorgeous beach, the resort’s 18 air-conditioned bures have separate living and bedroom areas, outdoor showers and their own private beach hut. The stunning honeymoon bure is hidden from the rest of the resort with its own pool and even its own private beach. The resort’s also convenient to the Sawa-i-Lau caves, where you can swim in a natural grotto or explore an underwater passage to an adjoining chamber where carvings, paintings and inscriptions mark the walls. While this resort is aimed at couples seeking total remoteness, it’s still only a scenic 30-minute plane ride from Nadi International Airport.
Matangi Private Island Resort
What could be more romantic than heading to your own private island? Matangi, a luxury destination that regularly polls among the best resorts in the South Pacific offers just that. Just off Taveuni, Fiji’s fourth largest island, it’s reached by a 90-minute flight from Nadi International Airport. Guests stay in gorgeous airy beachfront bures, or you can treat yourself to a stay in a tree house like no other – nestled into the canopy where you can enjoy the views from the outdoor Jacuzzi on your wraparound deck. There is intimate gourmet dining, or you can take a boat to the verdant Horseshoe Bay for a private picnic.
Royal Davui Island Resort
Honeymooners or those celebrating a particularly special anniversary will find the private villas at the Royal Davui Island Resort, on one of Fiji’s southern islands, perfectly fit the occasion. Staggering views, gloriously refreshing plunge pools and spacious, modern rooms are on offer here, along with a range of activities. Don’t miss the chance to have a Sand Cay Beach Picnic on a tidal islet a short boat ride away from the island. A small resort boat will whizz you there with picnic, mats and sunshade packed, so all you need to do is kick back and relax together.
