Why we think you’ll love it

  • The vast majority of the population lives on the main island, Viti Levu, conveniently leaving many of the other islands either thinly populated or completely deserted

Luxury Fiji Holidays: The Detail

Fiji's islands, with their white sand beaches and volcanic peaks coated in lush tropical vegetation draw surfers and divers from around the world, as well as those merely happy to chill out in idyllic surroundings at some of the world's best hotels. Original Travel, sister company Original Diving and Tim Simond (author of best-selling dive guide Dive in Style) have chosen their favourites from the many outstanding hotels on offer, including what is, in our humble opinion, possibly the finest private island resort in the world.

So what to do once you arrive in your own personal paradise? Enjoy first class service and drop dead beautiful surroundings, but also superb diving. Fiji is known as the soft coral capital of the world, but there is some spectacular hardware as well. Many of the best dives have huge hard corals of all descriptions - brain, plate, star, finger - waiting to impress, and all surrounded by thousands upon thousands of orange and blue anthias fish.

Sonsoma is generally considered the best dive spot, but thanks to their pristine reef, Wakaya is arguably the next finest diving in all of Fiji. And while diving is the definite highlight at Wakaya, over the water at Laucala the mission statement was simple - to create the best billionaire playground imaginable. They haven't done a bad job.

Did you know

  • There are 333 islands in Fiji and over 500 small islets. Around 110 of these islands are inhabited, although 87% of the population lives on the two biggest islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu
  • Fiji is located right on the International Date Line. In Taveuni there is a spot where you can stand with one foot in the current date and your other foot in the previous date
  • In the United States, Fiji Water is one of the priciest and classiest water brands

Church on a Sunday is a big part of the Fijians' lives, and visitors are welcome to go and join them for their weekly services. It's an activity that we find that our clients love: it gives insight into the warmth of the local communities, and exposes them to the special charm of the islands.
