Fiji For Lovers - 7 Amazing Resorts NOT To Bring The Kids To

26 September 2016

Fiji is renowned for being family friendly, but seriously, what could be more romantic than a palm-fringed tropical island, with white sandy beaches and someone nearby to serve you chilled champagne as you watch the sunset?

If you want a little more romance in your holiday life, why not leave the kids behind and check out these luxurious resorts in Fiji?

1. Likuliku Lagoon Resort

Located on Malolo Island in the Mamanuca archipelago, Likuliku is the first and only resort in Fiji to have ‘overwater bures’. It’s only about 25kms across the water from Port Denarau, so a relatively short boat ride, but if you really want to arrive in style, go the scenic route and grab a helicopter. Designed in traditional Fijian style, the all-inclusive resort has a stunning infinity freshwater pool, a day spa and delicious five-star cuisine, made with ingredients sourced locally or grown in the kitchen garden.

2. Laucala Island Resort

Set upon 3500 exclusive acres on its own private island, Laucala is certainly one of the prettiest of Fiji’s many islands. It’s dramatic volcanic landscape is covered in lush rainforest and surrounded by white sandy beaches. Choose from a range of luxury villas, from a beach-front Plantation Villa set amongst an old coconut plantation, to the Hilltop Residency or Overwater Villa. Each with a private pool and your own personal “Tao” or butler to take care of your every need. Style and sustainability go hand in hand, with natural fibres and woods used in all aspects of design, and a number of organic farms established to supply the resort’s restaurants.
