Fiji is one of the most blissful destinations globally, with the perfect balance of relaxation, adventure, and incredible food. So, if you’re wondering what there is to do outside of your luxury hotel in Fiji, read on. Here are our recommendations for how to make your lavish Fiji vacation as enjoyable as possible. 1. Explore the islands from above with a private helicopter. Did you know that Fiji is made up of over 300 islands, many of which are uninhabited? Therefore, it’s impossible to visit them all on your Fiji vacation, no matter how long you stay. However, you can get a bird’s eye view of the islands instead with a private helicopter tour. There are many scenic flights to choose from, with the flight time ranging from 30 to 90 minutes. Plus, some will take you to the exclusively private Mamanuca Island, where they will drop you off for the day. 2. Be a castaway on the uninhabited Monuriki island. Monuriki Island is one of Fiji’s most famous islands as it’s where the Tom Hanks movie, Castaway was filmed. Today, the island is still uninhabited, but that doesn’t mean you cannot visit. In fact, you can get a speedboat to whisk you away and drop you off on the island, leaving you to your own devices for the day before picking you up later. The island is completely untouched, and the waters are full of fish and coral, making it one of the most peaceful places to snorkel and swim. Plus, there’s a fantastic hiking trail that takes you up to a magnificent lookout point where you won’t see a soul or a boat in sight! 3. Experience the ultimate pampering spa day. As Fiji is a popular honeymoon destination, spas here are plentiful and extremely high quality, too. Namale’s five-star Valeni Sasauni Spa Sanctuary is one of the best luxury spas in Fiji. It’s nestled in the volcanic cliffs overlooking the beautiful Koro Sea, with grounds just as tranquil as the treatments. While a traditional Fijian massage is a must here, the vast complex has an impressive range of facilities, including aromatherapy pools, hot tub, cold plunge and sauna. 4. Hop around the islands via jetski. For an action-packed adventure in Fiji, take a jet ski tour around some of the best islands. As well as exploring the beauty of the Coral Coast, a popular part of the jet skiing tour is to visit the famous floating bar and restaurant, Cloud 9. You can also add on an extra waterport such as solo or tandem parasailing for double the fun. 5. Have a fine dining experience on a secluded island The adults-only Wicked Walu seafood restaurant is so exclusive that it has its own island yet is close enough to the mainland to reach via a small bridge. With both inside and outdoor seating areas, you can literally eat your dinner with the sand beneath your toes and the waves by your side. However, the unique setting is not the only remarkable thing about Wicked Walu. They are renowned for their fresh seafood, chargrilled steaks, mouthwatering desserts, and of course, incredibly welcoming Fijian hospitality. 6. Go on a sunset dinner cruise For another dining on the water experience in Fiji, take a sunset dinner cruise. On this cruise, you’ll sail through the Mamanuca Islands aboard the Fiji One, Fiji’s most prestigious charter vessel. You’ll enjoy a tropical BBQ dinner while you admire the spectacular views of the sun setting over the ocean. The cruise lasts around 3 hours and includes a transfer to and from your luxury hotel in Fiji.
