A few weeks ago I was treated to an incredibly luxurious vacation at Royal Davui private island resort in Fiji. I’ve been spoiled before (c’mon it’s my job!), and expected 5 star amenities, but all my expectations were met and this idyllic resort simply blew me away. Here’s my review of Royal Davui Resort in Fiji and some favorite photos -
But first let me explain myself. I am a beach bum, a scuba diver and happiest outdoors in tropical weather. So while it’s unusual for me to get overly excited about a fancy room or honeymoon suite, the vales at Royal Davui were incredible! In fact Royal Davui Resort in Fiji offers everything most honeymoon and luxury travelers have on their wish list.
Let’s start with privacy! To reach Royal Davui one must fly about 10 hours from Los Angeles to Nadi Fiji followed by a private plane and boat transfer to a tiny little island in the midst of Beqa Lagoon. Upon arrival, you’ll get your first glimpse of the island’s white sand beaches, turquoise water and what will soon be your adult only Fiji vacation home in paradise, one of only 16 beachfront vales.
Each vale (think bungalow, bure or villa) is built above the sparkling South Pacific Ocean and set far enough apart to afford total privacy. Access to your vale is along a winding path bordered by lush vegetation, tropical flowers and peek-a-boo views of the sea.
Entering your vale, the peek-a-boo views disappear and you’re greeted with stunning 180 degree ocean views from every room! Each vale has a light and airy living room with wet bar, fridge and coffee maker, generous deck with table and chairs for private outdoor dining and a private pool (premium vales have jetted and heated pools) suspended above the sea and beach below.
The separate master bedroom suite has a king bed with pillow menu, lavish bathroom with double sinks, an oversized Jacuzzi tub and large walk in shower. With the push of a button the shower roof is gone and voila, the Royal Davui Resort version of an outdoor shower!
There’s a second furnished deck with comfy lounge chairs off the bedroom and one of my absolute favorite features are the hinged window walls which can be opened wide to balmy breezes and sounds of the surf or closed for air conditioned comfort. Paradise in Fiji!
The restaurant and bar offer more amazing views and all meals are included in the room rate. The food at Royal Davui Resort is excellent and most guests dine al fresco in the main dining pavilion, at a torch lit table for two hidden from other guests, or enjoy room service on the deck of their vale. There is no extra charge for private dining. For those more social, the open air bar is a popular gathering place and local entertainers provide music and the occasional kava ceremony in the evening.
Daytime activities at the resort center on the beach, ocean, pool and spa. Numerous dive sights are nearby and the snorkeling is excellent right off the beach. Kayaks and sailboats are complimentary, bocce ball and volleyball are popular afternoon activities and there’s a full range of spa services available to keep the mind and body relaxed.
Royal Davui Fiji also offers optional cost excursions including
- deep sea fishing
- zip lining
- white water rafting
- jet skis
- shopping and more
But by far the most popular optional activity at Royal Davui Resort is the sandbar picnic where guests are “marooned” with a gourmet picnic for two, champagne and nothing but a white sand beach, clear tropical waters and time completely alone in Fiji. Ahhhhh…….
Royal Davui island resort is about privacy, pampering and time away with your special someone. You can stay as little as a few days but I recommend you plop yourself down and discover the truly indulgent pleasure of disconnecting and being away from it all!
