Shangri-La's Fijian Resort & Spa - best for an island resort easily accessed from the mainland. Situated on Yanuca Island, the Shangri-La has some of the area's best coastline and it's connected to the mainland by a bridge.
Kids will love: The Little Chief's Club, which specialises in supervised activities for children. The kids, as well as the adults, will also enjoy the lagoon side of the island which caters for all sorts of family activities on and off the water.

Castaway Island Resort - best for secluded island, reef adventure and relaxation. The moment you set foot on the pristine white sand shoreline, see the crystal clear waters and are greeted with a heartfelt "Welcome home!" from resort staff, you know you have arrived in paradise. Castaway is a barefoot island, and a relaxed dress code is encouraged. The resort has a rather small amount of private bures; a thatched-roof resort villa that reflects traditional Fijian style. You'll never feel like you're just another number, and the attention to detail here makes for a truly sublime and unique holiday experience.
Kids will love: The adventure offered at the resort. There's an extensive kids club activities program, plus they'll love exploring the shoreline and the private reef, located right outside your bure.

Fijians have a reputation of being possibly the friendliest people on earth. By respecting their customs and traditions you will always be a welcome guest in their villages and homes. Local considerations for you to take into account are; Religion, Fijians are mainly Christian, Indians are Hindu, and there is a Muslim minority. Tipping is not generally encouraged in Fiji.

When To Go
Fiji enjoys an ideal South Sea tropical climate. Maximum summer temperatures average 31° Celsius with the mean minimum 22° Celsius, winter average maximum is 29° Celsius and mean minimum 19° Celsius. The interior of the large islands is much cooler.Back to Top
What To Pack
Dress is always casual and comfortable. Fiji enjoys a tropical climate - especially noticeable in the hotter, humid summer months of November-March, so you will be able to travel light! That includes shirts with short sleeves, shorts, skirts, bathing suits, open-toed shoes, etc. Reef-walkers are great for protecting your feet if you are exploring exposed reefs at low tide. And don't forget a hat! Depending on where you are staying, you may like to bring some dressier, but lightweight clothes for the evening.
During the popular winter season which is high season in Fiji, it is less humid and some travellers can even feel a little cool in the evening, so a lightweight jacket or sweater is handy. To avoid embarrassing and offending the local Fijian people, visitors should dress modestly when in town, keeping brief clothing for the beaches and resorts. If in doubt about what is acceptable, ask your resort or hotel. This is especially important if you visit a local Fijian village.Back to Top
