Fiji honeymoon highlights
Fiji has plenty of luxury resorts for couples, where you can pair romance with personal service to ensure you're treated like king and queen on your special getaway. Some of Fiji's honeymoon resorts are also all-inclusive and while we understand it's a bigger upfront cost, it means you don't need to worry about any food and drink bills spiralling out of control. This is especially handy after a few manic days around your wedding! If you want more information about a Fiji all-inclusive honeymoon, please get in touch with one of our travel specialists.
Overwater bungalows have become the accommodation of dreams for honeymooners. Traditionally known as bures in Fiji, these thatched huts sit just over a turquoise lagoon and make for the perfect honeymoon bungalows in Fiji! Likuliku Lagoon Resort is where the first ones were built, while Tokoriki Island Resort is an adults-only slice of paradise. Wherever you choose to stay, we recommend an overwater bungalow for at least part of your Fiji honeymoon!
The brilliant thing about Fiji is that each of its mini archipelagos and the larger islands all offer something a bit different to the next. If you're into your adventure, the best island in Fiji for couples is Taveuni, whose lush interior is laced with wild walking trails and punctured by gushing waterfalls. Archipelagos like the Mamanucas and the Yasawas are more remote and offer romantic seclusion, sun-soaked beaches and gin-clear waters in abundance. So, there's not just one best island in Fiji for a honeymoon, there are many!
Obviously, romance is high on the agenda on any honeymoon. You'll be pleased to know that Fiji has plenty of it! The islands stunning beaches and tropical scenery speak for themselves, while experiences like private beach dinners and motu picnics only add to the romance. In particular the Yasawa Islands feel so remote that you'll feel as if you are the first to step foot on its islands, so find a spectacular stretch of sand and enjoy it for yourselves!
