Go on a river and cave safari
If you’re the type of person who loves adventurous getaways, treat yourself to a cave or river safari tour.

You’ll travel a total of 15 kilometres through the lush Sigatoka Valley, where you will discover some local Fijian villages.
Experience the Sigatoka River’s legendary tales and learn about local customs from your guide along the way. You can see and observe the locals going about their daily lives while cruising down the river and into the cave. Remember some tips and tricks to be a more sustainable traveller, so the locals will appreciate you more for that.
Enjoy a resort getaway in Vomo
VOMO is located in the Mamanuca Islands and can only be accessed by launch transfer, private speedboat, helicopter, or seaplane from Denarau. Now, this is definitely something worth splurging on. Nothing screams ‘luxury’ more than visiting an island destination that’s a bit more secluded and exclusive.
The adults-only VOMO Rocks beach club and bar may very well be the best in the South Pacific for couples. This could be the perfect romantic destination to witness the sunset after a long day, lounging by the beach or doing other fun Fiji activities. Stay in the Vomo Lailai Island Resort and relish the stunning scenery while relaxing with your favourite cocktail.
You can also snorkel, kayak, and swim with tropical fish in the clear waters around the island, which are some of the most bountiful in the South Pacific. The Vomo island also offers family-friendly activities and packages if you’re visiting with your younger explorers. There are daily resort activities, and if you’re travelling with kids but want to enjoy some free time for yourself or your partner, you can hire some baby butlers. Your kids can have all the fun they want without you having to worry about keeping an eye on them.
Indulge in luxurious spas At Six Senses
Having a luxurious trip in Fiji will never be complete without some self-care, which means some dedicated spa time. After all, there are legitimate reasons why you should book a massage while you’re there, as it’s a great way to get your body revitalised and raring to go. Head to the first Six Senses Resort in Oceania and book in for the full, unadulterated spa experience. Everything about this resort embodies renewal and rejuvenation, which is what holidays are all about, right?

Fiji’s restaurants provide a variety of international cuisine, from the menus of the major towns to the resorts. Fiji’s luxury resorts specialize in fine dining, whereas its towns tend to serve casual fare, both of which have a valid place on any Fiji holiday itinerary. For something a bit different, a few restaurants offer an in-the-water dining experience too, and it’s undoubtedly a must-try.
The food in Fiji does not pose any significant health risks as restaurants at resorts have a high level of safety standards. Fiji offers a wide variety of vegetarian options, but travellers with other dietary restrictions or concerns should contact their resort in advance so the chefs can specifically accommodate your food requests.
