Private island resorts in Fiji are like being the hero of your own Robinson Crusoe story, except that the locals are incredibly kind and will fulfil all of your every need. Oh, and it’s a five-star, high-end affair with all the modern comforts we’ve come to expect and enjoy.
Do your reservation earlier
Once reserved for the world’s elite, the opportunity to spend your vacation on your very own private island in Fiji is now within reach of many people. Enjoying a romantic holiday with your special someone doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your right to privacy and quiet. You might also reserve the entire resort for your family, friends, employees, or wedding guests. The good news is that you have access to all of these choices, some of which may even be more affordable than you think.
Lost into nature
Spending time on a private island is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience. It’s the height of extravagance, sure, but it also offers the chance to enjoy a tropical island paradise in its most pristine form. The sound of the ocean breaking on the shore will be your morning alarm. You may even opt to stay in a tree house hidden among the palm trees, with nothing but a tiny mosquito net separating you from the breezy ocean air. Leaving the stresses of modern life behind, you may relax and take in the tranquilly of island life.
Most private islands have preserved their natural environments, including their beautiful beaches and lush, unspoilt woods, so that tourists can experience the islands as they were before human settlement (except with the convenience of bug spray, electricity, and air conditioning). The island’s natural features make for a wide variety of attractions that may be enjoyed without venturing off the island. Trek through a rainforest that hasn’t been trampled on by settlers, scuba dive in waters that haven’t been damaged by overtourism, or hike to the top of a mountain and discover its hidden caves and rock pools. In many parts of the world, it is no longer possible to safely partake in these once-common activities.
Enjoy the fresh atmosphere
Enjoy the scenery while the island staff tends to your every need. The morning is perfect for meeting a local fisherman at the quay, picking out the fish you want for lunch, and then leaving the rest to your personal chef. Relax in the shade of a palm tree on your private beach while a native Fijian performs a traditional “Bobo” massage on you. Sip your favourite beverage as you watch the sun sink beyond the horizon and the sky fill with sparkling stars.
To whet your appetite and give you a better idea of what it’s like to spend a week or more on a secluded island, we’ve featured the following four resorts. Each apartment is spacious enough for a couple, but cosy enough for a small group of travellers. The selection of these lodgings was also influenced by their convenience to the attractions of nearby islands. You can prearrange excursions with us or have the island personnel set them up for you, and they include scuba diving, surfing, game fishing, and trips to local villages.
