My fiance and I are having a really difficult time finding a honeymoon spot in Fiji for September 2013 and we need your help!
I know there's already plenty of info out there and believe me I am not posting this without having first done tons of research. I have been through all the Trip Advisor forums countless times and read hundreds of reviews on each of the recommendations but havent' been able to find the perfect spot and am now going round in circles - so I'm coming to you seasoned travellers for advice!
What we're after:
1) Private adults only resort
2) Small and intimate resort (not those enormous ones where you're just a number)
3) Right on the beach/water
4) Option to have meals served to your room and/or at the restaurant/s
5) Access to massage and day spa
WOULD PREFER BUT NOT ESSENTIAL:
1) An island location (i.e. not the mainland)
2) Own pool or spa with the room
3) Access to activities and tours
Approx $6,000 AUS all up incl transfers. Would possibly pay slightly more for the right place but would like to keep within budget if possible.
We're getting married at the Outrigger on the Lagoon in Sigatoka but are happy to travel for the right place.
WHAT WE FOUND:
Yasawa Island Resort and Spa - Loved this but it's childrens only week during our travel dates so it's sadly been ruled out.
Namale - a little over the budget andhave been put off by reviews about the quality of the beach. Also, the distance is not ideal given the extra flight required.
Qamea Resort and Spa - a little over the budget and wondering whether the extra flight is worth it. It's a lot of travel and surely there must be something as good closer to the Outrigger?
Royal Davui - great but have been put off by all the references to sea snakes in the reviews!!
Likuliku, Tokoriki, Laucala, Tadrai, Tavenui, Turtle Island, Wadigi and Wakaya - all too expensive.
Navutu Stars looks great and seems cheap but I've read the beach is not great for swimming.
Maybe I'm being too fussy but we will only have one honeymoon and want to get it right so I'm putting it out there to see what everyone thinks. My head is spinning with all the information and right now I can't do any more research!!
Thanks in advance :)
