Fiji holiday ideas for romantic couples 

Splurge at an adults-only resort

While there are many fabulous places to stay in Fiji, if you’re looking for the ultimate in relaxation and tranquil surrounds, an adults-only resort is the only way.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort is a lavish property and the only one in Fiji with overwater bungalows. Meaning you and your plus one can dive out of bed and into the lagoon upon rising! You’ll also find Honeymoon Island close to Likuliku – need we say more?

If you’d like to fully get away from it all, head to Sheraton Resort & Spa, Tokoriki Island, Fiji

It’s only accessible by catamaran, speedboat or helicopter, but the lavish beachfront villas and bures make its remoteness worthwhile. Nearby, you’ll find Monuriki Island, where they filmed the award-winning movie Cast Away.

For romantic holidaymakers looking to feel like they are the only people alive, consider Qamea Resort and Spa. With only 34 guests across 17 hectares, it offers an upscale, adults-only resort with Robinson Crusoe vibes. Don’t miss the award-winning Jungle Spa. 

Sail into the sunset

Charter a yacht in Denarau Harbour and sail into the sunset towards some of Fiji’s 333 islands. Nukuivovo and Nukulau Islands are uninhabited, though there are several secluded islets you can also visit.

For the ultimate remote dining experience, organise a picnic to enjoy at sundown and lose yourself in the immersive blue waters of the harbour.

Gaze up at shooting stars

With beautiful sunrises and jaw-dropping sunsets a Fiji norm, it’s no surprise that stargazing is also spectacular in its more remote areas. Is there anything more romantic than snuggling under a star-lit sky?

Anywhere among the Fiji islands lends itself to spectacular star gazing, however the Six Senses on Malolo Island allows you to stargaze from your very own private pool, or while you enjoy local cuisine from Tovolea, one of the resort’s three restaurants.

Soak in hot springs

Nothing brings you closer than a trip to the mud pools, where getting the mud applied and getting the mud off requires a similar level of assistance from your special someone. At the Sabeto Hot Springs and Mud Pools, some 30 minutes from Denarau, you can enjoy a soak in the geothermal waters, followed by some fun coating each other in mud.

Set against the lush Sleeping Giant mountain range and close to the romantic Garden of the Sleeping Giant, this is a fun, relaxing day out.

Snorkel with Manta Rays

Connections deepen when you enjoy meaningful experiences together, and we can think of no more magical an activity than snorkelling in the company of 6-metre-long manta rays.

These graceful creatures visit Fiji’s warm waters from May to October, with the Yasawa Islands offering the best chances of sighting and swimming with them. Even two Yasawa islands - Kadavu and Wakaya - translate to Manta Ray and Barefoot Manta Islands. Manta rays are generally not fazed by humans sharing the waters around them, leaving you feeling at one with nature. It’s a heart-warming experience best shared with your significant other.


For more adventurous couples, consider skydiving over Fiji’s islands. Image: Skyward Industries

Soar to new heights

Take your romance to new heights aboard a thrilling scenic flight over Fiji’s mesmerising idyllic islands and coral. While you can cruise above a range of picture-perfect islets, reefs, and Fiji's forest-clad interior, we recommend you find a scenic flight that soars over the heart-shaped Tavarua Island.

For more adventurous couples, consider skydiving over Fiji’s islands. At 4,000 metres, you’ll each leap from the plane (with a tandem instructor), enjoying 45-seconds of freefall, before safely landing on Denarau Island.

Couples therapy

Because Fiji does pampering as well as it does happy, schedule some couple’s self-care sessions during your Fiji vacation.

The Fijian approach to wellness merges the country’s natural elements into every treatment. Each massage, facial, or specialty therapy leaves you feeling blissed out.

The sustainable Six Senses Fiji in the Mamanuca Islands is Fiji’s most dedicated wellness resort Their detoxifying spa therapies and muscle-relaxing massages complement the resort’s health-focused activities like yoga and hiking. Even adding a one-night wellness splurge to your Fijian holiday is worthwhile.

If you’d prefer to visit a day spa, SO Spa at the Sofitel in Denarau is wonderful. 

Life’s a beach

Just because you’re on a couple’s vacation doesn’t mean it should be just the two of you 100% of the time. Sometimes it’s fun to join new friends at an island day club.

Malamala Beach Club is the world’s only beach club on an island, some 25 minutes from Port Denarau. Enjoy the beachside cabanas, a saltwater infinity pool, watersport equipment, and delicious à la carte and bar menus as part of an idyllic half or full day out.
