It’s hard to imagine a more romantic and exotic honeymoon destination in the world than the islands of Fiji. Picture turquoise sea lapping at the edge of white sandy beaches, lush mountains covered in picturesque green forests with breath taking waterfalls and crystal clear lagoons. It’s no wonder that the people of the Fiji islands are some of the happiest in the world and the smiles and friendly greeting you’ll receive will make a lasting impression.
Scattered like lost gems in the South Pacific Ocean, 333 islands make up the archipelago known as Fiji. Although only 110 of these are permanently inhabited… the rest remain true desert islands waiting to be explored. When planning your honeymoon to Fiji, we highly recommend considering a two or three centre trip to make the most of this wonderfully diverse destination. To break down the long flight, why not stop over en route in either Hong Kong or LA and then once you have arrived in paradise, choose two or three islands on which you would like to stay. Whatever your style, budget or needs, Fiji boasts a host of boutique, luxury retreats – so the only question, is which ones are for you?
Food For Thought
Why not start your honeymoon with a few nights at the family owned Matangi Island Resort in northern Fiji. Ideally located off the beaten track for post-wedding relaxation and a spot of gentle adventuring… also home to the most famous treehouse bures in the South Pacific. Each treehouse has an outdoor river-rock shower, hot tub and day bed. If you choose to venture away from home, visit the waterfalls on Tavenui, take a walk round Horseshoe Bay and swim together in its secluded lagoon before heading back for a spa bath for two.
Each morning you’ll awake to the sound of tropical birds singing and the soft South Pacific sea breeze, and you’ll feel transported to paradise before you even open your eyes. Spend blissful days swimming in the ocean surrounded by multi-coloured tropical fish; and idyllic nights enjoying candlelit dinners on the beach or private picnics while watching the sunset.
All At Sea
From the trees to the seas: twin your stay at Matangi with the stunning Likuliku Lagoon, where stylish contemporary design effortlessly blends with traditional Fijian architecture. Likuliku in the Malolo dialect literally means ‘calm waters’ and was an ancient safe harbour and its still the perfect sanctuary for modern day couples. The ten overwater bures each have their own private sundeck, perfect for lounging on during the day and a separate bathing pavilion with lagoon views from your bathtub. Spend your days by the infinity pool or indulge in some pampering at the Tatadra spa.
As well as offering the ultimate in relaxation, Likuliku also offers the ultimate indulgence (for your tastebuds) at Fijiana, the centrepiece restaurant with stunning views. It specialises in exquisite Pacific Rim cuisine and the head chef uses the finest local produce with an emphasis on seafood, delicious tropical fruits and the diversity of influences that have shaped the South Pacific.
