Honeymoon to Fiji

We are a young couple thinking of going to Fiji this November. Doing some research I see there are many different islands and resorts. Has anyone had an especially good experience they could share in terms of hotels/location? We like to snorkel for sure, like great food/wine, and somewhere right on the beach. Thanks!

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, and honeymoon. Lots choice depending on budget. Would help to offer advice, if you could give a little more information. Approximate budget? Large or small? Adults only resort, or are kids ok?

The outer islands have the crystal clear blue water, soft, white sand beaches Fiji is know for, and amazing snorkeling off the beach.

Air Pacific flights from LAX to Nadi arrive very early in the morning. Will have no problem getting to an outer island the same day you arrive. Won't have to overnight returning back to the states as the flight departs late night.

As for Navini, there are several pluses to the resort. The resort has 24/7 transportation to and from the mainland. You will arrive at the resort about an hour after landing in Nadi. If you stay 7 or more nights it is included in the price. Another plus, all daily scheduled snorkeling and island tours are at no charge. Unfortunately, the island reef sustained damage due to Cyclone Evan this past December. The outer reefs faired better.

The following link has pictures of our vacation to Navini a couple of years ago. Will give you an idea of the bures, resort grounds, beach, etc.

Viwa island resort would be lovely for a honeymoon. Beautiful location and beach, good food and nice accommodation. I've also been to Navini but recommend Viwa for a honeymoon. They have a good special on their website, stay 7 nights pay for 5 nights.

Mid price range resorts worth considering are: Lomani and Matamanoa. Both are adults only. Also have a look at the websites for Mana, and Octopus. They are large resorts popular with families with children and offer a price range for accommodations. Navutu Stars, Blue Lagoon Beach, and Viwa may suit. While enjoyed our vacation at Viwa, we were disappointed in the offshore snorkeling.

Matangi Private Island Resort is our favorite resort in Fiji. It is pricey. The snorkeling off the beach, and tours to the outer reefs was the best we experienced in Fiji.

The following links have pictures of our vacations to both resorts.

Navini and Viwa would be my picks as they are smaller more private resorts.

Check the websites for specials. Matamanoa is bigger and popular with honeymooners then Tokoriki a bit more upmarket. Congratulations on our upcoming marriage have fun with your plans.

Coconut Grove Beach on Taveuni, and nearby Rainbow Reef Resorts are also worth a look. Both are small resorts. Haven't stayed them, but have stayed at other resorts in the area. Amazing snorkeling in the area. We are considering Rainbow Reef for next holiday. Have a look at their websites.

My wife and I luuuuuuuvvvvvvvvvv Navini. It is our little bit of paradise.

It is not however for all tastes. So in order that you can make a valued judgement I have included below a link to a You Tube video which does a pretty good job of showing you what Navini is about.

If however you are looking for five star luxury with all the bells and whistles you wont find that at Navini

Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZk_NYSQh_s

Hope you enjoy the viewing.

Another idea is to trawl through the previous posts on this forum; they talk about a lot of different resorts. You could perhaps pick the eyes out of that and then search for the reviews on this site.

Anyway half the fun is doing the research.

Hope you find what you are looking for and don't forget you can always private message some of the more experienced like E & C Reno or Hooked on Fiji. These people have shown that they love to help.

All the best

Thanks for the reply! We were going to try and keep the budget to about $200 a night if possible. Adults only would be nice but are open to other options. I like the bigger resorts that have bigger pools and more activities going on throughout the day! Also, coral reefs near by are a plus! Looking at all these islands there seems like a lot of good options...
