Are you craving an island getaway but have no idea where to land? Dive into a South Pacific escape that’s just right for you with this guide to some of Fiji’s best resorts for romantic getaways, family holidays and everything in between!
The Coral Coast is a 45-minute drive from Nadi International Airport.
The Naviti Resort
If you’re looking for a no fuss seaside getaway, this beautiful Warwick resort is it. Set amid 38 acres of lush tropical gardens, the waterfront resort has everything from comfortable hotel rooms through to one bedroom villas, all with views onto the magical gardens or the ocean. Kick back with a cocktail at the swim up bar, or taste test Fijian cuisine with both in-resort and nearby restaurant options.
Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa
If when you think of a South Pacific getaway, you think of a private island resort, then this might just be the place of your dreams. Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort is set on a 109 acre island with stunning white sand beaches and a beautiful natural lagoon. The resort offers the best of both worlds, with the essence of an island escape, but the convenience of being connected to the mainland by a causeway. A stay here can equally be filled with days by the pool and at the spa, then nights dancing to live music at the bar; or you can venture out to explore the cultural riches Fiji has to offer, and discover the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park just 10 minutes away.
