8 Fiji activities for couples


8 Fiji activities for couples

story by: Anna Sarjeant

If we’re talking romance, there’s only one place you’ll want to spend your next holiday, and it’s called Fiji.

Cupid take a break, let Fiji do all the hard work for you. 

1. Enjoy a private dinner on the beach
You know you’re in love when your partner nonchalantly leans across the table and helps themselves (without asking we may add) to your dinner. And if you don’t bat an eyelid - c'est amore. With the help of staff (and chefs) from Matangi Private Island Resort you can enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner on the beach. With a blanket of stars above you and the gentle lap of the ocean at your feet, what better way to impress your better half than with a chilled bottle of wine and Fiji’s finest cuisine? Talented Fijian chefs will ensure you both dine on a feast of fresh local food. From coconut crusted chicken to just-caught tiger prawns, there's no way their fork isn’t invading your side of the table.

2. Lunch beneath a Fijian waterfall
While the rest of us sorry folk are buying packaged sushi from the supermarket, you and your partner could be (and should be) lunching beneath a spectacular waterfall. Namale Resort & Spa actually has its own. Hidden at the bottom of a charming wooden staircase, you'll find a natural enclave of foliage and flora, complete with its own table for two and a small but perfectly formed waterfall. And that’s just the start of it. These guys know how to put on a romantic shindig. From dinners served in a candlelit, seaside cave, to hilltop bluffs with breath taking views, if you’re looking for somewhere unique to eat, Namale know where to put you. 

…Of course there’s always the Veidomoni Deck, with its very own heart-shaped hot tub. Oh stop it, Namale, now you’re just making everyone look bad.

3. Dine with a flirty Italian
If anyone can do romantic, it’s the Italians (just don’t tell the French). For a memorable ​and romantic​ night out, dine with Flavio in Nadi.

Similar to having dinner inside an Italian home, Flavio's is as intimate dining experience with only 12-14 guests sharing the same table. Chef Flavio, from Milan, is your host as well as your cook, entertaining guests from antipasti to dessert. There are no set menus, just whatever Flavio feels like concocting on the day. But don't be shy to contact him with your favourite Italian requests. Partner got a penchant for pesto? Just tell Flavio and he'll try and create something spectacular - pine nuts, basil and all. Just remember to book in advance; like all Italian men, Flavio’s in hot demand.

4. Go five star. YOLO
Imagine waking up in Fiji. Now imagine waking up in Fiji and nudging your partner awake just to show them the ocean. From your bed. That’s right – sea views from the comfort of your soft cotton sheets. Five stars, baby; nothing will make you feel more romantic than a high rollin’ lifestyle.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort boasts the only overwater bungalows in the country, and they’re hands-down sublime. With glass floor panelling for watching the native sea life, you can step from your suite to the ocean via direct ladder access. Maybe you’re more inclined to sunbathe on your own private deck, or to soak up the stunning exotic vistas from a freestanding bath? Everything’s designed to seduce at LikuLiku.    

5. Find romance in defeating your partner
Is there anything more satisfying than thrashing your partner at something they wanted to win? All’s fair in love and war. Especially when it comes to beach boules; one of the many activities you can partake in at Tropica Island Resort on the island of Malolo. An adults-only resort set within 19 acres of tropical gardens, you can either enjoy the child-free solitude, or embrace the multitude of activities. There’s a fresh water horizon pool fronting the Pacific Ocean and complimentary use of all the kayaks, snorkelling equipment, sail boats and SUP boards. And when you’re all puffed out, the resort’s beautiful sunset bar provides the perfect venue for cocktails and a wind down. Loser buys all rounds, obviously.   

6. Live like Kimye for a day
Introducing the exclusive Waitui Beach Club at the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa in Denarau. Ditch the kids and leave them in someone else’s capable hands; it’s what Kim and Kanye would do. Purposely built to be an adults-only area of the Sofitel complex, the club features a swimming pool without the screams, a Champagne bar with no sippy cups and live DJ entertainment perfectly suited for adult ears. With cocktails and canapés served at night, by day you can choose to holiday like an A list celebrity; complimentary yoga, stretching and boot camp classes run every morning and afternoon, and a selection of nutrition-focused food options are always available. If you don’t have kids, stay forever. And if you do, the Sofitel runs a dedicated kids’ club. Hallelujah - there is a God. 

7. Indulge in a hot spring
It’s tough work catching rays and soaking your skin in ripples of Fijian waves. Such a brutal regime can play havoc with your skin.

Head to Sabeto Hot Springs and discover the healing powers of hot mud and water. A​pply a thick paste of mud from the top of your head to the tip of your toes and allow it to dry. Soak in mud pools, fresh water pools and a further three thermal springs. By the time you slide out of the steaming abyss you’ll be as polished as brand new brass. Add on a full body massage and you’ll feel like a brand new person. Just a 20-minute drive from Nadi, Sabeto Hot Springs make for an easy and affordable day trip.

8. Have an inland adventure
​Venture inland and you’ll be rewarded with rainforest, waterfalls and fascinating wildlife. Taking a long boat along Fiji’s Navua River, which runs through Viti Levu Island is widely considered one of the most jaw-dropping boat tours you can take. Lead by native Fijian tour guides, you’ll tackle light river rapids and the gentle currents of the Navua, stopping for village visits and traditional Kava ceremonies headed by the ​chief. 

In Fiji, everything’s romantic. This is a mere taste of what those little love-inciters will put on for you. If you’re looking for a couple’s getaway, Fiji offers it all. From private dining at numerous resorts, to honeymoon specials and adults-only clubs, we’ll match-make you and your partner to the perfect Fijian resort.
