About Fiji

Fiji is one of those places many of us daydream about. This level of tropical perfection needs almost no introduction, just photos. But there’s probably more to this honeymoon paradise than you thought, what with the amazing coral reefs - home to more than 1500 different species of fish and ocean creatures - surrounding the private island resorts, and the wonderfully jungle-y interiors and friendly, welcoming culture. As you’d expect from a list of the best places to stay in Fiji, there are some beautifully barefoot luxury properties where you can sleep within the sound of waves lapping at the sand, but our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Fiji also includes some very reasonably priced options. As well as the perfect honeymoon paradises…

When it comes to highlights there are plenty of bucket-list beauties, including the near-perfect beaches of Mamanucas and Yasawas islands, which you might recognise from ‘The Blue Lagoon’, or ‘Cast Away’, and the diving and snorkelling around the Kadavu Group. This area is known for being under-developed, but that’s why it’s so special, with an amazing interior teeming with all sorts of birds and jungle creatures, dotted with spectacular waterfalls and mangroves you might want to kayak through.

The lush, green city of Suva is home of around half of this group’s population and plenty of rainfall. The colonial downtown is full of wonderful discoveries - tiny alleys lined with curry houses and sari shops for example, the local parliament, temples and a fantastic market.

The best places to stay in Fiji cater to all tastes and budgets, whether you're looking for a honeymoon hideaway or cheap (ish) beach resort.

The Most Romantic Places to Stay in Fiji

  • Fiji is a classic honeymoon destination and the Matamanoa Island Resort is a quintessential honeymoon hotel. There are 42 rooms arranged in colourful villas around private pools and overlooking a pristine child-free beach. And there’s a treetop spa. And a great restaurant.
  • If you love the idea of staying on your own private island, the Laucala Island Resort offers just that - albeit with a small selection of other guests and staff to look after you - around 300 staff looking after around 50 guests. There’s five star dining, an 18-hole golf course and a fleet of private yachts.

For great value

  • The First Landing Beach Resort & Villas is a collection of 40 rooms in light, airy villas with high ceilings and a nautical feel - which is in reference to this being the spot where Captain Cook first landed on Fiji. You’re right by the beach with access to the marina and there’s a great restaurant. Rooms start from around £80 per night.
  • If you’re travelling to Fiji to enjoy an idyllic beach holiday then the Beachcomber Island Resort is a great value option. it’s on a tiny, and relatively recently developed island, with 38 comfortable rooms literally a stone's throw from the clear sea.
