I love beaches and Fiji certainly allows me to enjoy the natural beauty of mother earth. I always stay at an exclusive Fijian Golf Resort & Spa on the world-class Natadola Beach. With superb facilities set among coconut palms and 35 acres of native flora, you can appreciate all kinds of watersports, snorkeling and diving in the blue waters of the South Pacific’s brilliant coral. Enjoy the 18 holes, a yoga class, relax by the pool, indulge in a spa treatment or take a dip in your room’s private outdoor Cleopatra Bath.

During the day, climb up to the top of Mount Tamasua and venture through giant succulents and lush scenery all the way to the peak. Dip into the hidden underwater tunnel of the Sawa-i-Lau caves in the Yasawa Islands where the movie Blue Lagoon was filmed. Next, surf across the balmy waters around Namotu and Tavanua and watch the famous breaks of Fiji’s outer reef.

Looking for excitement? Challenge yourself with the longest zip-line in the South Pacific or explore the cannibal cave. Jump on a quad bike for a nerve-wracking ride through Nadi’s back road, past Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple, the biggest Hindu Temple in the Southern Hemisphere. Venture through mud puddles, cane fields, pine forests and mountain plateaus overlooking the Mamanuca Islands.


Although it is amazing to see Fiji from the ground and from the ocean, the views of the Fiji from above are unbeatable. Hop onto a thrilling seaplane where you can experience a stunning bird’s-eye view of the turquoise reefs and lush islands.

Don’t miss out on learning about village life away from the hustle and bustle, with the sound of the “lali” drum beating from the village. Visit the Fijian temple “Bure Kalou” and the “Chief Bure” where you can witness their rich culture of carving, pottery making, coconut cure, tapa making and weaving. Be sure to take part in the welcoming “Kava” ceremony filled with singing, dancing and a delicious Lovo lunch by the riverside.


I also suggest visiting a few famous landmarks including the marvelous technicolor display of the Hindu temple and its traditional Davidian architecture and carvings. Explore the Garden of the Sleeping Giant with more than 2,000 different kinds of delicate orchids and take a dip in the thermal mud bath

Lastly, visit the Namaka Market where you can find colorful stacks of tropical fruits and vegetables.

If you love cooking and enjoy food as much as I do, I would suggest a hands-on cooking experience to learn the techniques, secrets, and traditions of creating delicious Fijian and Indian dishes at home.

Before the sun sets, board an enchanting and romantic cruise to enjoy dinner with spectacular views or choose to relax and indulge in a fresh seafood meal under the stars at a private waterfront cabana.
