Ni Sa Bula – a warm Fijian greeting.
That is truly what you receive when you arrive in Fiji. A Fijian band plays rhythmic music at the airport, welcoming flights. At each resort, you are greeted with lovely wooden bead lei necklaces or flowers.
Fiji offers a range of accommodations – from private island resorts with amenities and dining that are world class to moderate resorts with lots of character. Treehouse and beachfront “bure” accommodations are also available!
Many resorts offer special honeymoon amenities such as champagne, fruit baskets, or the traditional Sulu (wrap garment).

Weddings and vow renewals can be easily arranged, complete with a traditional warrior escort and the beautiful, fragrant “Salusalu” – flower garlands worn around the necks of the bride and groom… or they can be very simple affairs, depending on your choice. Some guests’ fondest memories are delightful Fijian wedding ceremonies held at sunset, along the shores of the famous Blue Lagoon, followed by a wedding feast. All of this epitomizes romance in Fiji!
The beautiful scenery of Fiji is diverse. Fiji has white sand beaches and black sand beaches. Towering volcanic peaks and jungle rivers will allure you while azure to turquoise shades of water will astound you. Turtle Island is award-winning for their commitment to sustainable tourism so you’ll discover they are both a high-end resort and responsible member of the community!
Fiji has over 300 islands, many of which are uninhabited, allowing resorts to arrange picnics “for couples only” on a private beach. What could be more romantic than to have an “island” to yourselves for the afternoon? (Ashley and JP from ABC’s The Bachelorette got engaged here!)
You can enjoy soft adventure, such as a Bilibili raft rides, swimming, and snorkeling – or if extreme adventure is more to your liking, there are 10-day guided tours of the back roads, actually spent cycling for most of the time.
Fiji is also known as the “soft coral capital of the world” and is a world-class area to SCUBA dive either from shore or live-aboard boats. Shot over jet rides and surfing are also available. Golf courses are professionally rated and a real bargain.
Family life in Fiji is structured around the village or extended family. Visits to a traditional village to meet the chief and drink the kava is an outstanding way to get a glimpse into this fascinating culture.
Fiji is another land all together. It’s slightly further than Tahiti but completely worth it. Fiji Airways offers nightly nonstop service from LAX to Nadi with only 11 hours of flight time. In Fiji all of your worries seem far away, because they are. Surrounded by the tranquil blue waters, happiness will always find you.
When visiting Fiji, you’ll likely stay in a bure. “Bure” is the Fijian word for a wood-and-straw hut, sometimes similar to what we in the U.S. would call a cabin. Think of the term bure as being synonymous with bungalow. The resorts offer all styles of bures from standard to ultra-luxurious. We recommend the beachfront or oceanview bures to enhance your vacation experience. Unlike French Polynesia, Fiji only has one resort featuring overwater bures.
Turtle Island, Fiji
Turtle Island is the ultimate playground for couples (and families at certain times of the year) providing a plethora of activities like horseback riding and snorkeling, world-class dining, and romance.
Taking your vows on a pristine beach with impossibly blue waters lapping the shore, celebrating your new marriage in a secluded cottage (“bure”) with breath-taking views, or commemorating a life-long romance
with your spouse, Turtle Island can make your dream romantic getaway a reality.
Turtle Island is blessed with 14 white, powdery, pristine beaches. Some are adjacent to living and dining areas, and some are completely isolated, bounded by high cliffs or set within a cove. Your time here is your own.
Stroll along your own private beach, wade in the turquoise waters, cruise on a sailboat, or experience the abundant sea life by snorkeling or scuba diving with one of our Fijian guides. It’s all included in the price of your vacation. Couples can reserve their own private beach for the day and enjoy their own exotic, romantic picnic luncheon with delicacies such as lobster and champagne—it’s your meal to create. Lose your inhibitions. Read a book. Sip cocktails. Work on an all-over tan. It’s your beach. It’s your time.
Intimate and romantic dining in remote, private locations; breakfasts on your own private beach; open-air picnics; moonlight dinners by the seaside; meals under the stars by lantern light on a floating pontoon in the middle of the Blue Lagoon; fun-filled community dinners with the rest of the guests—Turtle Island creates dining experiences that you will never forget! Group dinner parties are held every night at several locations around the island, where you can linger for hours among new-found friends, and have stimulating conversations with guests and the Turtle family alike. After dinner, take in the talented, entertaining Fijians as they inspire you with local, favorite songs and dances.
