What makes a vacation romantic is pretty personal for each couple. But if you’re looking to spend your honeymoon in Fiji, surrounded by natural beauty—and where your every whim and fancy will be catered to in spades—there’s a resort that fits the bill. It’s safe to say that Fiji does romance with a tropical backdrop better than almost any place on the planet.
Picture yourself in a thatched-roof bure with your private plunge pool and the beach a few barefoot steps away when you check into some of the best honeymoon resorts in Fiji.
Wakaya Club & Spa
Trees felled during Cyclone Winston were incorporated into the redesign of this spectacular private island resort that reopened in 2017 in the Lomaiviti Archipelago. One of the best resorts in Fiji for couples, Wakaya Club & Spa has just 10 lavish bures and two private villas for guests to stake their claims on a corner of paradise. Cathedral ceilings in the bures and king beds draped with wispy mosquito nets make your bure feel like the tropical boudoir of your dreams.
Spend your days snorkeling off the white sand beaches among sea turtles and tropical fish, playing golf or tennis or heading off-island for fishing trips and romantic picnics on deserted nearby islets. You’ll find no shortage of things to do in Fiji here.
Six Senses Fiji
Fronting a sweeping crescent of beach on Malolo Island in the Mamanucas, Six Senses Fiji, which opened in 2018, draws couples looking for a sophisticated stay in the islands. Opt to bed down in one of the beachfront or garden view bures, all with their own plunge pools and romantic outdoor showers with huge soaking tubs.
For the ultimate splurge, book one of the resort’s private residences, with sprawling outdoor decks and master bedrooms with doors that fold completely open to let in the sparkling ocean views. This resort particularly appeals to active couples who like to surf and scuba dive, with excellent onsite operators that can take you out on bespoke tours to nearby reefs and the world-class surf spot, Cloudbreak, nearby.
Laucala Island Resort
Secluded beaches and dense rainforests are your backdrop at this private island resort on the site of a former coconut plantation, where guests arrive by private plane. The villas at Laucala Island Resort are all completely secluded, with terraces crowned with private infinity pools where you can take a dip surrounded by all the island’s rich greens and blues—and not another human in sight.
Come evening time, tiki torches light up your terrace, turning on the romance for a post-sunset swim in the pool. Among the many activities you can partake in during your stay are horseback riding, scuba diving, game fishing, kite surfing and much more.
Honeymooners who pass on Bora Bora for a vacation in Fiji and a stay at one of the 10 uber-romantic overwater bungalows fringing Likuliku Lagoon will not be let down. Made with natural island materials using traditional Fijian building techniques, the overwater bungalow is your own little oasis right at the edge of a tropical coral reef.
Clink glasses of champagne while enjoying a soak in your bure’s oversized bathtub, with sweeping views overlooking the lagoon. And when it’s time for a snorkel session together, just descend a ladder right from your bungalow into the surrounding gin-clear seas. It’s obvious why this makes the list for one of the most romantic resorts in Fiji.
Yasawa Island Resort & Spa
It’s no overstatement that Yasawa, in Fijian, means heaven. This luxury all-inclusive resort with just 18 romantic beachfront bures in the Yasawa Islands will certainly feel like your little slice of heaven during a stay. Guests can really spread out here, with 10 private beaches at their doorstep and all manner of cultural and activities to enjoy.
It’s the beautiful indoor-outdoor design of the bures that makes them so romantic. Each has a large outdoor deck with daybeds where you can read or soak in the views, and the tucked-away outdoor shower will make you never want to bathe indoors again.
All the amenities make it hard to leave the property, but it’s worth venturing offsite for a half-day excursion to the famous Blue Lagoon Caves. Just ask, and the concierge with arrange it for you.
Royal Davui Island Resort
This adults-only resort at the edge of Beqa Lagoon on the south coast of Viti Levu breathes romance and barefoot luxury at every turn. The guest villas at Royal Davui Island Resort are called vales (the Fijian word for home), and all have floor-to-ceiling glass doors that fold back to create an indoor/outdoor living space that maximizes sea and rainforest views.
All accommodations have their own climate-controlled private plunge pools, too, and there’s no better start to the day than a soak and a hot drink here while watching the sunrise paint the sky in pastels.
For an especially romantic outing offsite, have the concierge book a picnic for two at nearby Sand Cay, a blissful sandbar where you can spend time snorkeling in the clear waters or resting under a sun shade.
Lomani Island Resort
Head to Malolo Lailai Island in the Mamanucas to ensconce yourself with your significant other at the adults-only Lomani Island Resort. The 30-guest accommodations range from suites to beachfront bures with their own private pools, and all have ocean views.
Paddling out together in one of the resort’s complimentary glass-bottom kayaks and finding a secluded stretch of coral reef for a snorkel is a fine way to spend another idyllic day in paradise.
Matamanoa Island Resort
On its own private island in the Mamanucas Chain, Matamanoa Island Resort is surrounded by a coral reef marine sanctuary and sparkling sapphire seas. The property has just 10 beachfront villas, located on a private beach that guests access via a walkway from the main resort or via chauffeured golf cart rides.
When you’re not blissing out on the white sand beach, your villa has its own covered patio with a comfortable day bed to lounge atop as well as a private plunge pool for swimming in complete privacy. Make time for a couple’s massage at the resort’s exquisite treetop spa, Veidomani, where treatments take place in the open breezes with 180-degree ocean views.
Vatuvara Private Islands
If it’s romantic enough for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who purportedly holed up here in 2018, chances are adults-only Vatuvara Private Islands will tick the boxes for your two, too.
Lapped with the turquoise seas in the Northern Lau Islands, off Viti Levu’s east coast, Vatuvara is the kind of exclusive locale that ensures your private villa’s mini-bar is stocked with your favorite beverages on arrival, so you can toast paradise as soon as you touch down.
With just three all-inclusive villas spread across 800 lush acres, privacy is of the utmost in your own corner of the South Pacific, where you can practice yoga on your private deck, head out scuba diving, play golf at the four-hole “organic” course or swim in a hammock and do absolutely nothing at all.
Tokoriki Island Resort
One of just two resorts on gorgeous Tokoriki Island in the Mamanucas, this adults-only property is continually lauded among Fiji’s most romantic lodgings. There are just 36 bures and villas for guests at Tokoriki Island Resort, all of which are free-standing to afford maximum privacy.
Surrounded by palm trees and tropical flowers, the beachfront pool villas are the most roomy and romantic, with infinity edge pools and double day beds for lounging outside, side by side. The resort’s staff includes a dedicated Romance Coordinator, whose sole mission is to set you up with the most romantic options for dining and excursions during your stay.
