Last week saw the much-anticipated return of international flights touch down in Fiji’s Nadi International Airport. The now quarantine-free destination has officially reopened and is welcoming tourists from Australia back to its tropical shores this December. With COVID-19 safety measures in place, Fiji’s luxury resorts are ready to reintroduce you to their island home. If you’re getting ready for a Fijian escape then these are the luxury resorts you need to know about.
Kokomo Private Island Fiji
Escape the crowds and relax in the tropical paradise that is Kokomo Private Island Fiji. The island is part of the Kadavu island group that’s located just 25 minutes away from Nadi International Airport by twin-otter seaplane or helicopter. Kokomo guests travel to the island via the resort’s dedicated aviation hangar and are greeted with a traditional Fijian welcome ceremony. From here, the Kokomo’s luxury experience only continues to unfold with ocean-view suites, beach yoga class, treatments at the Yaukuve Spa Sanctuary and plenty of cocktails by the pool. If you happen to be traveling via Superyacht then you’re welcome to take advantage of the resort’s Anchor and Stay experience.
Likuliku Lagoon Resort
You can’t get any closer to the crystal blue waters of the Pacific than in like one of Likuliku Lagoon Resort’s overwater bures. Built with traditional Vesi flooring, artisan-made wooden window pelmets, hand-woven coconut husk art, and authentic palm thatching, each luxury bure offers access to the beach and lagoon, with eighteen of the bures benefiting from a private plunge pool, personal daybed, private courtyard, and outdoor shower. We suggest booking one of the ten overwater bures for the ultimate Fiji experience.
Leave your shoes behind at Vomo Island’s luxurious private beachfront accommodation and settle into the island life. While you might be tempted to spend your day lounging in the resort’s beach hammocks, you also have the outdoor pool, tennis court, beachside dining, bars, and a full-service spa offering massages, body treatments, and facials to enjoy. While couples will find the Vomo island suites romantic, families are catered for with the Beachfront Family Retreats which feature stunningly large verandahs and luxurious outdoor bathtubs to enjoy.
Namale Resort and Spa
You will want to leave the kids at home for this romantic escape. Namale Resort and Spa is a tropical hideaway set within 525 acres of Fiji’s luscious northern island of Vanua Levu. The boutique accommodation is made up of just 19 uniquely decorated guest suites with multiple outdoor pools, a full-service spa, golf course, and complimentary shuttle to shopping designations. While you can’t go wrong with any of the luxury bures, we recommend booking the Luxury grand villa with its 2,000 square feet of space that includes a large deck, covered daybed, outdoor shower, full-size infinity pool, and hot tub with ocean views.
Live out your blue lagoon dreams on Fiji’s 174-acre Castaway Island. Offering traditional Fijian accommodation in the heart of the Mamanuca Islands, guests stay in authentic thatched-roof bures just seconds from the beach. With paddleboards and kayaks available to hire, yoga sessions, and guided nature walks, the resort will make sure that you get the chance to explore the island’s white sandy beaches, coral reefs, and thick rainforests. But with four eateries, cooking demonstrations, and spas, we will be surprised if you make it out of the resort.
