Picture yourself reclining on a beach lounger, nothing but the sound of waves gently lapping at the shore, fancy cocktail in hand. If you have kids, that probably sounds like a far-fetched dream. Yet resort owners in Fiji know exactly what parents need – a family holiday, with activities for kids and adults, as well as some chill-out time for the grown-ups.

1. Radisson Blu Resort, Denarau

The Radisson Blu is nestled among 10 acres of gardens and has its own private beach, as well as four swimming pools. One of them is home to Fiji’s only white-water tunnel slide. The Blu Banana Kids Club will keep children occupied with activities available for toddlers and children up to the age of 12, as well as the chance to partake in the nightly torch-lighting ceremony. For some quality time for parents, the resort has babysitters for hire, allowing them to enjoy the peaceful, adults-only swimming area, a spot of golf at the Denarau Island Golf and Racquet Club, or perhaps a quiet dinner together after the children have gone to bed. A range of non-motorized water sport equipment is available, such as kayaks and stand-up paddleboards, while other adventures and excursions run by Evolution Fiji are also on offer, such as a jet-ski safari.

2. Treasure Island Resort, Mamanuca Islands

If an island getaway is more your family’s style, head out to the Mamanucas to Treasure Island Resort, a tranquil setting surrounded by turquoise waters. The Little Treasures Kids Club provides a range of activities to occupy youngsters, although they only look after children between the ages of four to 11. Kids aged three or younger will need to be supervised during activities. Babysitting can be arranged and the resort has baby strollers available for rent – one less bulky item to worry about. Treasure Island Resort has a strong focus on wildlife and conservation, which is ideal if your children have a passion for nature. They can help feed turtles as part of the island’s conservation program, partake in different cultural experiences, such as basket weaving, learning the Fijian language, and a ‘meke’ performance (singing and dancing) for parents. Snorkel off the beach, take the children out in the kayaks, play a round of mini golf or tennis, and relax during the resort’s nightly cultural entertainment.

3. Robinson Crusoe Island Resort

An idyllic setting not far off Fiji’s Coral Coast, Robinson Crusoe Island Resort is the ultimate in cultural family holidays. There are bure hut-style accommodation options, as well as the family lodge, which can sleep up to six adults with plenty of space for the whole family. Children under the age of four are free of charge, making this resort an ideal choice for parents with toddlers. The activities club, Kids Korner, offers activities such as jewellery-making, hair-braiding, dance lessons, traditional costume-making, treasure hunts and a Junior Island Survivor. Aside from the many snorkeling spots and water activities, the resort also runs a range of free activities, such as medicinal plant and culture walks for insight into local Fijian traditions, coconut jewellery-making, island dancing lessons and fire dancing shows.

On the island of Vanua Levu, Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort knows how to create the perfect family holiday. With nannies available for every child – that’s right, a nanny dedicated to every child – there’s always an extra person to help out with the kids, giving adults some much-needed rest and relaxation. The Bula Club offers a range of activities for youngsters, including the opportunity for children aged six to 12 to participate in the Junior Chef Program, teaching the farm-to-plate concept. The resort is situated on the picturesque Savusavu Peninsula, with unspoiled views of the Bay and plenty of water activities available. On site is the renowned Jean-Michel Cousteau dive center, offering scuba diving options for older children and adults.
