Snuggled up in the northern Yasawa Islands, this 5-star luxury resort provides an idyllic setting for honeymooners or couples looking for a romantic escape. Navutu Stars has a maximum capacity of just 20 guests, ensuring attentive service from the warm and friendly staff. The Grand Bures all have an oversized tub in the living area, and each day the tub is prepared with flowers, floating candles and scented oils to create the perfect ambiance for your romantic getaway.
It’s not hard to understand why Tokoriki Island Resort consistently wins awards: it’s easily one of the most exotic and romantic resorts in the archipelago. Situated in the Mamanuca Islands, you can choose your preferred mode of transport to the island – from speedboat to helicopter.
As well as the idyllic ocean-view bures and villas, Tokoriki offers a variety of activities to help you and your partner connect and enjoy your quality time together. Choose to snorkel or dive the beautiful reefs, go island-hopping, share a secluded island picnic date, or indulge in a spa treatment together.
If you want to be as close to the water as possible at all times, then consider Likuliku Lagoon Resort – the only resort in Fiji to offer overwater bungalows. The name Likuliku means ‘calm waters,’ which is exactly what guests are in for at this luxury resort on Malolo Island, designed only for couples. Cruise to the island from Denarau or fly in by helicopter for an extra special entrance and enjoy the soothing, calming waters that surround you.
With just five deluxe beachfront villas, Tadrai Island Resort on Mana Island knows how to create a truly romantic and secluded experience. Each villa has a private plunge pool with views of the ocean, an outdoor shower and air conditioning. There’s plenty to do – from kayaking, fishing, snorkeling and climbing to simply relaxing and soaking up the romantic atmosphere. Guests can dine at the resort’s restaurant, choose in-room dining, or order gourmet picnic baskets that can be taken to any of the beaches, which look out to the other islands. The Wai Siliva Alfresco Spa offers a range of luxurious beauty treatments, either within the spa or in the comfort of your own villa.
Laucala Island is the crème de la crème of luxury holidays. This exclusive, private island is the spot where celebrities go to escape everything. There are 25 villas scattered throughput the resort, each of them private and secluded, with stunning backdrops and their own swimming pool. The island is incredibly diverse, from the beautiful beaches to the tropical rainforest and mountainous landscape. Laucala uses this natural setting to its advantage, and offers a truly luxurious setting while supporting sustainable practices and building. No expense has been spared – and that’s evident with the nightly rate reaching almost US $5000, so you’ll need to apply in advance if you want to stay here.
