Planning your Fiji honeymoon can be tough. Let’s face it, your honeymoon is important and if you’re spending all that time and money to go to Fiji, you want it to be good! Romantic, fun, relaxing, and picture-perfect beautiful.
After the wedding, planning your honeymoon is the next most important thing.
This is why I wrote this blog. After traveling Fiji extensively (and planning our own wedding there), Dan and I know what is important when planning your honeymoon in Fiji. Of course, choosing the perfect honeymoon resort in Fiji is super important, but there are a few other things to consider too.
Here you will find information about why choosing the area in which you stay is important, the best honeymoon resorts in Fiji, romantic things to do and see, and so much more! It’s your ULTMATE guide to planning your very own Fiji honeymoon!
Where to Stay for your Fiji Honeymoon
Choosing the best area to stay in Fiji is important. It’s so much more than just picking a nice hotel.
Although a small island nation, Fiji isn’t all that small when it comes to getting around on a short honeymoon. Between traffic on the main island and limited ferries to get out to the smaller islands, it is vital that you book a hotel in the area in which you plan to spend the most time.
For this reason, I have selected the best areas to stay in Fiji for anybody visiting on their honeymoon. These are the areas with the best beaches and the most romantic honeymoon resorts that are perfect for couples. These areas are all also fairly easy to get to, meaning you won’t spend an entire day on a boat just getting there.
My best advice for deciding where to stay in Fiji would be to decide on an area to stay first, and then choose a resort in that location. Once you’ve decided where in Fiji exactly you want to base yourself, then it is time to pick your perfect Fiji honeymoon resort!
The Yasawa Islands are made up of a total of 20 pristine islands. They are located Northwest of Viti Levu and easily reached riding the Yasawa Flyer catamaran. From Port Denarau, you can expect the ride to take anywhere from 2.5-4.5 hours depending on where you choose to stay.
There are some stunning island resorts located in the Yasawa Islands complete with plenty of pools, activities, and restaurants. Some of the resorts are located on their own private island – perfect for a relaxing honeymoon in Fiji if you ask me!
One thing to note about staying on remote islands is that you will be confined mostly to the island. You’ll have to eat at your resort restaurant and keep yourself busy with the activities they offer. This is perfect for anybody going to Fiji for a relaxing honeymoon but probably wouldn’t suit those who like to stay busy and explore. This is also true for the Mamanuca Islands (next in this blog.)
The Mamanuca Islands are one of the most popular areas to stay in Fiji. They are a beautiful isolated group of islands that’s easily reached from Port Denarau. Most resorts can be reached in about a 2-hour or so ferry or boat ride.
You might recognize these islands from the reality TV series Survivor, of the movie Cast Away that stars Tom Hanks. These islands are so beautiful they really are what you see on TV!
There are a few great resorts to choose from on the Mamanuca Islands (more on them below.) One of the best things about staying on the Mamanuca Islands is the close proximity to Port Denarau. So, if you’re worried about getting bored at an island resort for your entire honeymoon, then you could mix a couple of night stay on the Mamanuca Islands with a couple of nights in Denarau.
The Coral Coast is an area located just over an hour’s drive from Nadi. Here, you will find nice beaches and various resorts offering an island vibe without actually having to get on a boat or drive too far!
The resorts here are reasonably priced and huge – probably the best bang for your buck when it comes to resorts in Fiji! You can easily walk or take a taxi to nearby restaurants if you don’t want to be confined to the resort.
The beaches are great for snorkeling, but they aren’t pristine like you’d probably imagine in Fiji as they are usually pretty full of coral (hence the name, “Coral Coast.) However, if you aren’t planning on spending a ton of time in the ocean then this shouldn’t be a big deciding factor for you.
Denarau is only a few minutes’ drive from the Nadi airport and is centered around the main port. Port Denarau is where all of the ferries to the outer islands depart as well as many day excursions. It is very easy to book day trips out on the water from Denarau, which is handy since the beaches around Denarau aren’t anything to get excited about.
Denarau is a very touristy area composed of resorts, restaurants, and shops all aimed at tourists. Therefore, out of all of the areas to stay in Fiji, there is the biggest selection of very nice hotels and resorts in Denarau.
For people looking for pure luxury, you’ll love Denarau! Since it is located on the main island of Viti Levu, there are no “small island resort sacrifices” to be made. You’ll have access to WiFi, plenty of delicious restaurants, air conditioning, day spas, shopping, and so much more.
You will likely fly into the Nadi airport which makes Nadi the easiest place to stay. Nadi is a city of about 42,000 people on Fiji’s largest main island of Viti Levu. It sits on the coast and many hotels are located here.
Nadi offers a city-vibe mixed with a beach-vibe making it a good combination for a place to stay. Nadi is also the most budget-friendly area in Fiji in terms of accommodation, however, there isn’t much for beautiful honeymoon resorts to choose from.
To stay at a nice resort in Nadi you’ll have to go a few minutes outside of the city. You won’t get the gorgeous beaches you expect in Fiji here, but you will get a great value hotel with an ideal location for accessing all of the fun things to do in Nadi, as well as Port Denarau for island day trips.
Can’t decide on just one area to stay in Fiji? Then stay at two! Move once during your Fiji honeymoon to switch it up a little and keep things interesting. I would recommend spending a few days on one of the remote islands (Yasawa or Mamanuca) and then the remainder of your time on Viti Levu. This way, you can enjoy island life as well as plenty of other fun and adventurous things to do in Fiji!
Island Hopping for your Fiji Honeymoon
Can’t decide which island to visit for your honeymoon in Fiji? Well, then you should consider island hopping!
Island hopping means you will bounce around between different islands during your holiday, this way, you’ll be able to see and do so much more!
There are two different ways you can organize island hopping: 1) book a hop-on hop-off pass with South Sea Cruises and prearrange your accommodation on the islands you want to visit, or 2) go on an organized cruise.
Organized cruises are great because you don’t need to do any planning. There are a few different types of cruises you can choose from, some of the most popular options include:
- 7 Night Cruise – This is a cruise ship where you’ll sleep on the ship and explore different islands during the days. All meals are included and the ship even has a pool! You’ll get to explore both the Yasawa Islands and Mamanuca Islands with plenty of activities to keep everyone (even kids busy.) Expect to pay over $2000 USD per person for this 8-day experience.
- 4 Night Cruise – This is a also a cruise ship experience, just a little bit shorter and cheaper. It also includes meals and plenty of fun activites during the day. Since it is only 4 nights, this is the perfect option for anybody who wants to experience lots in a short amount of time. Expect to pay around $1200 USD for this experience.
- 7 Night Tour – This is an organized “tour” where they prearrange accomodation on various islands for you, and also supply the transport between the islands. It also includes a ton of fun activites like Malamala Beach Club, hiking, snorkeling, caves, and more. Meals are not included in this tour, but it comes in pretty reasonably priced at under $800 USD per person.

These below resorts are top-rated and come with plenty of amenities suited to honeymooning couples. They are also spread out all over Fiji, so you can choose a resort in the area that most interests you and your loved one!
1. Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa (Yanuca Island)
Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa sits on the exclusive Yanuca Island, offering you a relaxing Fiji honeymoon experience without bringing you too far from the mainland (there’s a causeway connecting to the mainland).
Upon checking in, you’ll be spoilt with three pools and a private beach, along with five waterfront dining concepts and three waterfront bars. Adults-only dining and cocktail hour is readily available, too. After an action-filled day, treat yourself to an exclusive overnight spa treatment at Chi, The Spa, located away from the main resort.
All rooms here boast unforgettable ocean views, Fijian-inspired décor, and private balconies, but the Reef Bures are the must-book for your Fiji honeymoon. These adult-only rooms feature a private infinity pool with daily complimentary sunset beverages and canapes. Rates also include breakfast.
Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa is about 50 minutes from Nadi International Airport through a scenic countryside route.
Depending on the room you choose, expect to pay around $300 FJD to $890 FJD per night based on double occupancy.
2. Hilton Fiji Beach Resort (Denarau)
Featuring over two kilometers of private beach on Denarau Island, the five-star Hilton Fiji Beach Resort is only a 20-minute drive by car from the Nadi International Airport.
This resort caters to guests of all ages, but you can still enjoy your Fiji honeymoon at its adults-only KORO zone. Here, you can find expansive beachfront pools, restaurants with all-day dining, a bar, and a deck. There is also live evening entertainment available. Outside the KORO zone, you can enjoy the day spa and fitness center.
The accessible rooms at the resort come complete with floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies, where you can enjoy a scenic view of the ocean or the resort’s lush garden. Activities nearby include snorkeling, diving, fishing, and jet skiing.
Prices range at this resort from around $450 FJD to $2,300 FJD per night.
3.Castaway Island Resort (Mamanuca Islands)
If you’re looking for a luxurious island stay that’s easy to get to, look no further! Castaway Island Resort is a huge private island resort that comes as one of the most highly-rated places to stay in Fiji. Here, you’ll find 4 restaurants, a pool, and an endless list of free activities to keep you busy all day long. You can also take advantage of the tennis court, pool bar, and day spa.
Castaway Island Resort is one of the easiest resorts to get to, in fact, many guests skip the boat ride altogether and opt for the short (but scenic) flight. From the Nadi airport, you can get to Castaway Island in only 15 minutes on a flight. If you want to take a boat, South Sea Cruises has a catamaran that departs daily.
One thing to note for your Fiji honeymoon is that this resort is family-friendly and does have a kids club. So if you’re looking for an adults-only resort this is not the one for you.
Castaway Island Resort isn’t cheap either, and you can expect to pay upwards of $1000 FJD per night for a bure. But trust me, this luxury resort is well worth the price tag and there are few places to stay in Fiji as beautiful as this.
4. Royal Davui Island Resort (Beqa Island)
Nestled on ten acres of gorgeous tropical setting on Beqa Island, Royal Davui Island Resort is one of the adults-only Fiji honeymoon resorts.
Each of the 16 exquisitely appointed villas here boasts a wet bar, private heated plunge pool, a soothing spa bath, and a sun terrace with spectacular sea views.

When it comes to activities, the resort offers private beach areas and various watersports like diving, snorkeling, and kayaking. The best part is that only several guests are accommodated at a time, so expect an intimate and authentic Fiji honeymoon experience from the minute you arrive.

Each of the resort’s 45 bures is traditionally designed with authentic architecture and beautiful views of the Likuliku Lagoon and ocean.

All 266 guest rooms at the resort feature a Cleopatra bathtub for a complete luxury experience. There’s a private terrace or balcony in every room, where you can soak in the views of the beach, lagoon, garden, or pool. In some of the suites, you can even enjoy a private plunge pool.

Other on-site facilities include a 24-hour fitness center, two bars, and my personal favorite, the beachside cabana massage. You can try out the non-motorized watersports on the property, dip in the pool, or play 18 holes on the PGA-endorsed golf course.
You can get to the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa from Nadi International Airport by car in about an hour. This is very appealing for couples who don’t want to spend a lot of time getting to their hotel on their honeymoon.

The guest rooms at this resort come with a contemporary and luxurious vibe with a hint of traditional Fijian touches. Each room features the signature Sweet Dreams by DoubleTree bed and a private balcony or patio overlooking the gardens or beach.
What I love most about this hotel is the tons of activities available right on the property, from dipping in the infinity lagoon pool and relaxing in the spa to immersing in cultural activities and watersports. Other notable amenities on-site include a casual poolside dining and a swim-up bar. This hotel is perfect for any honeymooning couple who likes to stay busy.

The Radisson Blu Resort is just stunning, and for what you get, the price is very reasonable too. This resort is just huge offering tons of activities for both families as well as couples. There is an adults-only pool as well as spa services.
The Port is only just around the corner. This is the perfect place to stay before you head out for an island stay, or by simply basing yourself here you can easily go out on as many day trips as you want! This resort is perfect for couples who like to stay busy and would likely find themselves bored at a remote island resort.
Rooms here range from standard hotel-style rooms with king beds or two queens, up to two-bedroom suites. Some rooms feature courtyard views while others have a view of the lagoon. All rooms have a balcony and minibar.

Located in the Mamanuca Islands, Beachcomber Island Resort is one of the most popular island resorts to stay in Fiji. Its affordable pricing mixed with its close proximity to Viti Levu make it one of the best honeymoon resorts in Fiji.
You can reach the Beachcomber Resort from Port Denarau riding the Yasawa Flyer ferry. The ride should take about 2 hours and costs $119 FJD each way.
One thing to note is that this resort isn’t super luxurious. There are dorm rooms at the property that will attract backpackers or those traveling Fiji on a budget. Only some of the rooms have air conditioning, so be sure to pay attention to that when booking.
With that said, Beachcomber Island Resort is located within a marine sanctuary, making it an ideal spot for snorkeling or diving.

At this resort, your stay is already inclusive of all gourmet meals, snacks, and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as all standard and scheduled activities like private beach picnics and guided snorkeling tours. All that’s left is for you to relax and enjoy your Fiji honeymoon!

One thing to note is that this hotel is popular with families and weddings. So, sometimes it can be quite lively.
Expect to pay around $300 FJD for a standard king room with a resort view.
Romantic Things to do for your Fiji Honeymoon
Sunset Dinner Cruise
From Port Denarau, you can enjoy a beautiful sunset dinner cruise. Not only are these cruises super affordable considering they include dinner, but they are a romantic way to spend a couple of hours in the evening on your Fiji honeymoon.
Oftentimes in Fiji, your days will be full of beaches and activities, and then you’ll have nothing to do at night. This sunset cruise is the perfect way to enjoy an evening once the sun starts to go down!
It is the best seat in the house to enjoy a beautiful sunset!
Fire Dancer Show
A traditional way of dancing in Fiji is with fire! Fire dancers in Fiji are very talented and put on a unique show right in front of your eyes as they spin poles lit with fire.
If you want to see a fire show, you can go to a paid show such as one at the Fiji Culture Village, or you can try and catch a free one in a bar or restaurant. Just be aware, not all fire dancers are as talented as the next. If you want to see the really impressive ones, then I recommend going with the paid experience!
When I was last in Fiji I went to the Fiji Culture Village and loved it!
Enjoy many sunsets
Fiji has some incredible sunsets. You simply couldn’t visit Fiji and not enjoy multiple sunsets over the water. Grab a hammock or a cocktail (or both) and enjoy the show from just about any beach in Fiji.
If you’re staying in Nadi or Denarau, then head to the nearby Wailoaloa Beach one evening to watch the sunset. Here, you can actually visit a rooftop bar on top of the Ramada hotel that is actually open to the public! Club 57 & Bistro offers some of the best views in all of Nadi.
From this rooftop bar, you’ll have the best seat in the house during sunset. You’ll get to see the entire coastline. And the best part? They have a daily happy hour right when the sunsets – bonus!
But the truth is, no matter where you enjoy the sunset, be sure to do so! I watched the sunset every single night while I was in Fiji and they never disappointed!
If you are an early riser, checking the sunrise too is a great idea!
Visiting Malamala Beach Club
If you’re staying on Viti Levu, then a great day trip is out to Malamala Beach Club. This beach club is located on a pristine private island complete with an infinity pool.
Head out for the day and spoil yourself and your loved one with beachside cocktails and lunch.
Okay, so this one might sound a little strange as a honeymoon suggestion, but the truth is that Dan and I have been skydiving twice before together, and nothing brings a couple closer together than a little adrenaline. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you’ll remember forever – and when better to do it than on your honeymoon?!
The thing I love most about skydiving is that it is a scenic flight experience and thrill activity all in one!
The truth is, if you’ve never been skydiving before then maybe it is time you do so! Sure, it sounds scary, but it’s totally worth it!
Skydiving in Fiji isn’t cheap though and you can expect to pay over $200 USD for a jump. You can choose between a 12,000 ft drop and a 14,000 ft drop, with the latter being the most expensive. The plane departs from Nadi, so this is another great activity if you’re staying in and around Nadi and Denarau.
Fiji is surrounded by vibrant coral reefs full of fish that you see on a snorkeling tour. While you can go snorkeling on your own from various hotels around Fiji, sometimes it can be hard to know where to go (especially if you’re staying on the main island of Viti Levu.)
Most cruise and snorkel day trips depart from Port Denarau (only a few minutes from Nadi), but some will even pick you up from your hotel in and around Nadi. A day trip from Nadi to the Mamanuca Islands on this sailboat is very popular. Visiting the Yasawa Islands is also popular, but more commonly done on overnight cruises due to the longer distance from Viti Levu.
If you ask me, snorkeling is one of the must-do bucket list activities in Fiji.
