With its pearly white beaches and azure skies, Fiji is home to some of the world’s most luxurious resorts and spas.

Picture a remote tropical paradise, and this South Pacific archipelago comes pretty close. Dramatic volcanic peaks, crystal clear water and secluded villas make for a luxury stay in Fiji. Enjoy island life in even grander style by booking one of these opulent hotels, complete with infinity pools, butler service and private speedboats.

Grand Pacific Hotel

Take high tea in style beside the waters of Suva Harbour. With a grand tiered wedding-cake-style façade, this regal hotel was built in 1914 and still dominates the waterfront in Fiji’s capital. It has even hosted Queen Elizabeth II twice. Now restored, book one of the heritage suites in the original building if you’re looking for period features. Complimentary sundowners are served from 5pm–7pm each day as you get to enjoy the view of the harbour.

Dip your toes in your own beachfront plunge pool while looking out to sea. Lomani is an adults-only resort on Malolo Lailai Island, where the emphasis is most definitely on couples. Alternate lazy mornings on the beach with adventure-filled afternoons hiking, water-skiing or snorkelling. All 30 suites and bures feature modern decor, with crisp white walls rather than the traditional island style of many other resorts. Book early to secure a coveted pool suite.

Located on its own private island in the heart of Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands group, Castaway’s 65 traditionally thatched bures are all moments from the ocean. There are also two pools, a kids club, a tennis court, beach yoga and a boutique shop.

You could stay in an over-water villa while in Fiji, but why not sleep aboard a yacht? This resort’s 140ft (43m) schooner, Serenity, is permanently moored on this private island. Onboard, you’ll find a cinema room, a Jacuzzi and a private bar – plus room to sleep ten. Alternatively, opt for a secluded villa on land. Take advantage of the resort’s free-roaming dining – you can eat on a private beach under the stars or inside a secluded oceanfront cavern.

With just 17 rooms, you’ll only have to share it with 35 guests. Head to the jungle, where you can enjoy a massage in a treehouse at the only Guinot Spa in the South Pacific.

It may just be 30km (17 miles) west of Nadi international airport, but this adults-only island resort feels entirely secluded. Reach it by high-speed catamaran or, for the ultimate convenience, helicopter. Inside your beachfront villa, you’ll find decor inspired by Fijian crafts, an outdoor shower and a plunge pool. Climb the steps to the spa as they wind high above the forest canopy – you’ll be treated to panoramic ocean views at the top.

Moor your yacht, and head straight to the spa at the Musket Cove Resort to soothe those aching muscles. As one of the first resorts in the country, Musket Cove is something of an institution in Fiji. Located on the second-largest of the Mamanuca Islands, its marina is a desirable stop-off for passing boats. Choose the island villa, one of 10 situated on a private atoll, with a shared pool and barbecue area. Start your day jogging through 400 acres (162ha) of tropical gardens before securing a poolside cabana next to the swim-up bar.

    The enchanting Likuliku lagoon is a crescent-shaped bay on the north-western shore of Malolo Island, shrouded in Fijian mythology. The resort’s design emulates a traditional Fijian village – with hand-woven thatched roofs and tribal-patterned interiors. Perhaps, the unique selling point of the Likuliku Resort are its over-water bures – the only ones in the Fijian archipelago – which arch across the lagoon’s placid waters.
