Embrace the warm South Pacific culture and its tropical pin-up good looks while staying in Fiji.

From vintage summer houses to rustic jungle retreats, Fiji’s hotels are as varied as its bountiful lagoons. But there are some qualities that unite them – sunshine, white-sand beaches, azure water and a friendly welcome. Read on to discover the best places to stay in Fiji.

Grand Pacific Hotel

This grande dame sits on the waterfront in Fiji’s capital, Suva. It’s been a landmark since 1914, when the Union Steamship Company of New Zealand built the Grand Pacific to house passengers travelling on the South Pacific route. Expect high ceilings, double louvered doors and broad verandas. Book a heritage suite in the original building – you’ll gain access to the exclusive Victoria Lounge, where breakfast and complimentary sundowners are served every day.

Alternate lazy mornings on the beach with adventure-filled afternoons snorkelling, water-skiing or hiking at this adults-only resort. Alternatively, sunbathe by your private, beachfront pool villa, if you’re lucky enough. Book into the open-air beach spa for a romantic treatment – they use all-natural, all-local products, including coconut milk. If you can tear yourself away, explore Malolo Lailai Island by bike or canoe. A dolphin safari and a trip to Solevu Village market are a must.

With its international airport, most visitors pass through Fiji’s largest island – but why not stay? With dolphin spotting, scuba diving and kitesurfing hotspots on your doorstep, Viti Levu makes a great Fijian base. Make your way to the quiet resort on Tambua Sands. The detached cottages are surrounded by 17 acres (7ha) of forest, so they feel entirely private. The garden rooms offer mountain views, whilst the beachfront bures have the advantage of their own pools.

Everything at Navutu Stars – from the cottages built by local craftsmen, to the fish landed each morning on the beach – aims to give you a true experience of island life. There are just 10 bungalows here, the only resort on Yanggeta Island. Explore by kayak, join a daily boat trip to see the Blue Lagoon or stop by local villages. Sunburned? Try a spa treatment of aloe and banana leaf to soothe sore skin. Come dinner, order the Singapore chilli crab at the on-site restaurant, which operates according to a plantation-to-plate ethos.

    Natural rather than manicured, the 52-acre (21ha) island, located just off the south coast of Fiji’s second largest island, Vanua Levu, is full of mangroves and forests to explore. Ten lofty villas jut out on volcanic outcrops over the sea, each with a private pool. Alternatively, stay aboard the Serenity, a 43m (140ft) three-masted schooner with its own cinema and bar. Make the most of the on-site dive shop – they’ll guide you to the best surrounding coral reefs.
