ICING-SUGAR BEACHES, WILDLY EXOTIC LANDSCAPES AND A RAFT OF RAVISHING NEW HOTELS: HOW FIJI DOES HONEYMOONS
NESTLED IN THE DAZZLING AZURE WATERS OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC LIE THE ISLANDS OF FIJI
Arguably the world’s happiest paradise. With an incredible 333 islands to choose from, all boasting year-round warmth, there’s plenty of scope for long-haul luxury. For of-the-scale romance, the island of Taveuni is hard to beat. Located in the pristine north, just a 50-minute light from Nadi International Airport, it’s home to a clutch of swoon-worthy retreats that put the rest of the world’s honeymoon escapes in the shade.

Tides Reach Resort, a contemporary orchid-strewn all-inclusive is pitched right on the shores of he Paciic. Fringed by skinny palm trees with a backdrop of tropical greenery as far as the eye can see, this is back-to-nature island living with cocktails on tap. Horse-riding, suring and scuba-diving are all on ofer, but it’s perfectly acceptable to lop from the beach to the spa if that’s more your style. Nearby Matagi, a private island resort just of the coast of Taveuni, has recently undergone a top-to-toe revamp; rustic-chic villas peep out from a dense rainforest canopy and feature four-poster beds, tree houses and swathes of bamboo and lava rock.
Not only that, Taveuni sits on the International Date Line, so pay a visit (perhaps a honeymoon picnic in one of the secluded bays) and boast that you’ve been, quite literally, halfway around the world. Prefer the splendid isolation of a private villa? Take your pick between Vacala Bay, your own haven of sleek modern luxury complete with wrap-around pool and views of Fiji’s most beautiful bay (a favourite of Prince Charles!), or Raiwasa Grand Villa, one of the world’s most exclusive and opulent hideaways. It’s safe to say nothing beats the raw beauty and natural splendour of Fiji. Consider us oicially hooked.
