Introducing Fiji

Fiji is a paradise that fits the definition of "worlds away"—but getting here is easier than you might expect. Though the 300-island nation is thousands of miles from any mainland, it's also the most-visited hub in the South Pacific and boasts excellent travel infrastructure. And with coral reefs hosting a brilliant array of sea life, tropical jungles, and postcard-perfect palm trees swaying on quiet beaches, Fiji's beauty speaks for itself: this is an idyllic destination for honeymooners, backpackers, families, and everyone in between.

Diving, snorkeling, surfing, and sunbathing are unsurprisingly popular here. But there's more to Fiji than glorious resorts and beach time. Travelers who want to get off the beaten path can do so on islands like Mamanuca, where you can dig into local life with kava tasting and a Fijian village homestay. Or head to Kadavu or Taveuni, islands with particularly verdant jungle landscapes, perfect for guided hiking trips. No matter what your travel style, our local specialists can customize a trip that you'll never forget.

Hotel Reviews
Matamanoa Island Resort
Mamanuca Islands, Nadi

This was my favorite hotel from our Fiji trip. The staff was amazing, everyone was so kind and went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. They got to know us by name and even remembered our preferences. We felt so sad to leave! The view of the beach was amazing, we spent every morning snorkeling. The reef is immediately accessible and visible, just 20-30 feet away from the shore. The feel of the hotel is extremely relaxing. There is one restaurant but the food is excellent, I never felt tired of the options because the menu changed everyday.

Authenticity & Character
The staff is so friendly! They take the time to learn your names and chat with you everyday.
Location
The island feels remote and private. It’s a quiet and relaxing location.
Staff
Enoke, Kevin, Bai, Naomi, Aquila, and so many others were all so special. They are extremely kind and friendly.

Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort

As honeymooners, this resort was not ideal for us because it caters to families with children, but nonetheless the quality of our stay here was excellent. There’s plenty to do, the staff is excellent, and the Sundowner restaurant in particular has great food.

Waterfall Tour
Fiji

We really enjoyed our first outing on our trip to Fiji! Our guide, Esther was so personable and kind. It felt like hanging out with a good friend. She was enthusiastic showing us around the village. Once we got there, we partook in a lava ceremony, then we did a horse ride to the waterfall. The trail was beautiful and we were able to swim in the waterfall for a bit. Esther personally made us lunch, it was so sweet of her! We really enjoyed this trip.

Tivua Island Day Cruise
Fiji

This cruise was so much fun! The crew was so talented and entertaining the entire time. They were high energy and very friendly. We arrived at Tivua and had our own little cabana to relax in, clear waters, and access to an open bar and snorkeling gear. My husband and I learned our first scuba diving lesson and it was amazing to experience the reef for the first time here. Highly recommend this cruise!

Sunset Dinner Cruise
Fiji

The cruise and the crew were amazing, but the experience was a bit of a zoo. It was crowded on the deck and many of the people aboard were very loud and rowdy (not the crew, only the guests.) it wasn’t relaxing and hard to enjoy because of this. It was hard to enjoy the sunset because of how crowded the deck was. I didn’t like the dinner that was served, it was buffet food.

I wish the cruise wasn’t so crowded. I didn’t enjoy the buffet food. It wasn’t a relaxing experience.

When we were ready to leave manta the money hadn’t been paid by Kimkim, but the manager Lauren said, “no worries... they always pay. We’lol sort it out” and they let us leave without $$ in place for our 3 day food and lodging! Glad to hear you have a great relationship with the places.

We discovered a hidden gem in Boitaira ... good food, beautiful beach, chill village hike, friendly staff (be prepared for a few bugs and critters in your bure)
