Long considered a place Aussies love for a fun-filled family holiday, Fiji is equally as popular for loved up couples wanting to tie the knot, propose or escape for a romantic holiday. So what is it about this archipelago of 333 islands that is so appealing? Here are 10 reasons you need a romantic escape to Fiji.
Fiji is the land of crystal clear, inviting blue lagoons. Step out of your private bungalow or resort room onto fine white sand and into warm ocean waters. Is there anything more romantic? If you’re after a holiday that’s more reclining and wining than exploring and activities, Fiji is the place to be.
For the most serene, relaxing, romantic holiday possible, Fiji’s adults-only resorts fit the bill. The jewel of Fiji’s northern islands, Qamea Resort & Spa is an exclusive, adult only resort on a private island, the Royal Davui Resort only caters to a few guests at a time, for the ultimate in private island holiday, and the Tokoriki Island Resort is one of the closest adult-only resorts to Nadi’s international airport. If you’re after unique luxury to rekindle your romance or perhaps pop the question, at the LikuLiky Lagoon Resort you can stay in complete paradise in an overwater bure, and faultless service.
Not just known for its spectacular landscapes, visitors return to Fiji time and again for the warm Bula welcome. A romantic holiday should be stress free and taken care of, and that’s exactly what you can expect in Fiji. Attentive butlers, wait staff who remember your drink order, and service with a smile, everywhere you go.
What’s more romantic than sipping a cocktail as the sun sets over the sea with your one and only? Fiji’s sunsets are consistently rated as some of the best in the world, and it’s not difficult to see why. Take your lover by the hand with a bottle of champagne in hand and head to the beach for a sunset picnic.
We’ve all seen the photos of a couple having a romantic, fine dining dinner on a secluded beach, with not another soul in sight. Well Fiji is where you can do that too. Many luxury resorts offer private date services, whether it’s the beach, in a secluded rainforest or a cave, miles away from anyone else.
An archipelago of 333 islands means the only way to fully appreciate Fiji is from the air. Take your special someone on a private helicopter or seaplane scenic flight over the islands to see magical places like the heart-shaped Tavarua Island. If heights are not your thing, how about setting sail for a romantic sunset cruise or private day on a boat? The date ideas here really are endless!
There’s no better way to get close to your partner than bonding over new experiences, and there are no better experiences to be had than in Fiji. Whether you’re into surfing or want to learn, if snorkelling Fiji’s famed soft coral reefs, or scuba diving is on your bucket list, this is the place for water activities. Perhaps you want to learn a new skill you can take back home? A traditional Fijian cooking class is sure to give you something delicious to recreate for years to come.
Speaking of Fijian cuisine, Fiji is known for its rich island flavours and seafood. They say oysters are an aphrodisiac, but you can feast on all manner of the freshest seafood here. It doesn’t stop at Fijian cuisine though, you’ll find myriad international fine dining establishments, all the way through to your laid back beach club diners.
There’s only one thing better than a massage, and that’s a massage with your lover. Fiji’s luxury resorts are home to some of the world’s best spas, with treatments ranging from intimate full body massages, to banana leaf wraps, facials and more. You won’t get closer to the crystal clear waters than at the Bavari Spa at the Yasawa Island Resort, a thatched spa with deck that stretches right over the sand. If you’re staying somewhere else, most resorts have an onsite spa so you’ll never have to wander too far.
Last but definitely not least, there’s no better way to slow down and enjoy time with your special someone than on island time. The rushes, expectations and schedules of reality get left behind when you board the plane to Fiji. A good book and good conversation are all you need, and of course your plus one!
