Since becoming a Fiji Specialist I’ve visited the Fiji islands regularly in search of the best honeymoon and all inclusive resorts. So what have I found? Here are some of my favorite Fiji resorts at several budget levels –
Namale is the most inclusive of all Fiji resorts and an outstanding choice for a honeymoon or destination wedding. With only 19 bures, this adult only sanctuary offers the rare combination of luxury, total privacy and a long list of complimentary activities such as waterskiing, golf, scuba diving, hiking, horseback riding, tennis, bowling, a movie theater and more.
The food, spa and views are simply incredible and Namale attracts the rich and famous seeking time to themselves. But don’t be concerned, the service is superb and you’ll be treated like Fijian royalty whether this is a once in a lifetime splurge or a luxury you indulge in more often. Spa treatments are additional but meals, drinks (alcoholic and non), private dining and activities are included. View package details or Namale Resort blog post and slide show
Viwa – While not an all inclusive resort, Viwa has a very affordable meal plan and includes lots of “extras” such as daily snorkel trips, line fishing, weekly Warriors Walk and village visits in the room rate. The resort is brand new and set on a stunning stretch of white sand beach surrounded by clear turquoise water and coral reef.
Each beachfront bure have a living area, fridge, bathroom with open air garden plus a large furnished porch with oceanview. In front of each bure is a beach palapa, chaise lounges and a hammock big enough for two. Viwa also has an incredible introductory package that makes it one of the best vacation deals in Fiji.

Likuliku has Fiji’s only overwater bungalows and they are gorgeous! So is the beach, lagoon, pool, pier’s edge bar, restaurant… you get the picture! But if the $1000+ night rate inclusive of meals and non motorized activities is too steep, think about combining a couple of nights overwater with time on the main island or perhaps a more affordable outer island resort with good interisland connections.

Qamea remains an all time favorite adult oriented Fiji resort with a wonderful beach, great snorkeling and diving, fabulous jungle spa and a selection of accommodations ranging from beachfront bures to lavish villas with private pool or jacuzzi. All meals and non motorized water sports are included in the room rate as are daily excursions such as a snorkel trip or private island picnic, private dining in your bure or on the beach, and a weekly Fijian Meke. Drinks are additional. Click for slide show or check current specials.
Royal Davui is a private island resort in Beqa Lagoon, another well known snorkel and dive destination. Each of the 16 luxurious villas is a place to escape with every creature comfort imaginable. You’ll be pampered with a light and airy living room, wet bar, generous deck with table and chairs for outdoor dining, a private pool suspended above the sea and beach below, luxuriously appointed bedroom opening onto a second furnished deck with comfy lounge chairs, and a lavish bathroom with oversized Jacuzzi tub and walk in shower. Check vacation packages.
The views from every room are simply stunning and one of my favorite features are the hinged window walls which can be closed for air conditioned comfort or opened wide to capture the tropical breezes and enjoy the sounds of the surf. Paradise! The restaurant and bar offer more amazing views and resort activities center around the pool, the beach, water and spa. All meals and non motorized water sports are included in the room rate. Click for Royal Davui Resort blog post and slide show.
Hideaway is a great choice for an affordable all inclusive vacation in Fiji. Hideaway is on Fiji’s Coral Coast with easy access to adventures like ziplining, white water rafting, waterfall hikes and day trips to an outer island. The comfortable bures have more charm than an ordinary hotel room and include special Fijian touches like an outdoor shower and porch with hammock. The all inclusive package is optional but a great value with meals and drinks from about $4K total for two including airfare. (Sadly the $3K killer deal of last summer is a goner…)
And last but not least, Nukubati is another all inclusive Fiji resort with a special appeal to scuba divers and honeymooners seeking a private island experience. Nukubati has only 7 bures and guests are pampered with personal service, fresh seafood, beautifully prepared and presented Fijian dishes, two bars and an extensive wine list. And, just minutes off the beach, The Great Sea Reef is a divers’ paradise known for hard and soft corals, turtles, rays, dolphin, whales and hundreds of fish. Scuba diving and game fishing are offered at additional cost but all meals, drinks (alcoholic and non) and non motorized activities are included in the room rate.
