Considering a Fiji Honeymoon?

Here are our top tips:

1. Decide on the type of honeymoon you want

Do you plan on relaxing by the beach, cocktail in hand, for days on end? Are you planning on snorkeling and diving from sun up to sun down? The way you plan to spend your honeymoon is incredibly important for choosing the right Fiji destination. You don’t want to end up on a resort with no accessible beach if you’re planning to spend your whole time there. Some resorts cater more towards adventurous guests while others are better for ultimate relaxation.

2. Settle on a budget

In Fiji, you can be as extravagant or as practical as you like – you just need to make sure you’re at the right place. Many Fijian resorts offer inclusive packages and meal plans, and others offer the full, all inclusive experience where you hardly need to lift a finger. These sort of indulgent packages come with a high price tag to match, so be sure you have an idea of what you’re willing to spend for your Fiji honeymoon.

3. Avoid the rainy season

Fiji is an incredible destination any time of the year, but for a special occasion like your honeymoon it’s best to avoid the rainy season. November to April sees the most rain, with January to March as the wettest months. The best time to visit Fiji is during the shoulder seasons, from late April to early May and October to early November. This is when crowds begin to dwindle and the wet seasons are ending or haven’t started yet.

4. Plan with a Destination Specialist

With over 330 islands, choosing the right resort for your Fiji honeymoon can easily get overwhelming. Working with an About Fiji specialist ensures you’re working with a travel expert who’s been to Fiji and knows which resorts will suit you and your partner perfectly. You’ll receive personalized service with every detail taken care of, from take-off to your last flight home. We won’t put you in a resort with no healthy reef system if you wish to snorkel and dive, nor will we send you to a resort requiring several boat trips and separate flights to get to if you want to relax the moment you arrive in Fiji.
