Your honeymoon is that once-in-a-lifetime trip to relax and unwind after all the months of wedding planning. Think of it as your reward for all of that stress. The honeymoon should be your own little slice of heaven for however long your escape from reality is. 

Imagine walking hand-in-hand along white sandy beaches in an idyllic tropical setting with coconut palms trees swaying in the gentle breezes. You are enveloped by salty air and the scent of fresh frangipani. If your dream honeymoon is a secluded island with romantic ambiance, then allow Fiji to be your reality. 

Nestled in the heart of the South Pacific is the honeymoon haven of Fiji. Composed of over 300 islands, this tropical paradise awaits as you experience the trip of a lifetime. Just a 10-hour flight from Los Angeles, your arrival in Fiji greets the sun as you are welcomed home. 

Fiji is known for its picturesque islands and romantic resorts, many topping “most romantic destination” lists. The exotic island paradise, pristine beaches, friendly natives and accommodating staff; there isn’t one thing they have forgotten when it comes to hospitality and service. You are greeted, day and night by the friendly staff, which learns your name and happily use it during your stay, making you feel like you truly are home.

Enjoy romantic, lantern-lit dinners on your own private deck or island. Engage in activities like yoga, snorkeling or hiking or visit a local village for a taste of the Fijian life. Experience award-winning cuisine and wines before turning in to your private bure.

Fiji embodies romance with their weddings and honeymoons. If you are planning a destination wedding on an island in Fiji, the resort staff will take care of all of your details, down to the marriage license. They offer wedding ceremonies rich in the romanticism that will provide years of unforgettable memories. Throughout the many island resorts, there is a setting perfect just for your style, whether it is a sandy beach, rainforest, a garden of orchids, a native village or a chapel on the beach, they have it all. 

The island aptly named Treasure Island showcases an elegant glass-enclosed chapel with breathtaking views that seemingly go on forever. The bride walks to her groom on a glass aisle. Following the wedding, the chapel posts the names of each couple who married there on a commemorative wall. Immediately following your ceremony, you can embark on that dream honeymoon. 

If you are planning to wed on your own mainland, allow Fiji to bestow upon you an exotic honeymoon that you will never forget. 

You will not only experience the romance that is Fiji, but it’s also a voyage to tantalize your taste buds, relax each and every muscle, open your mind to the natural beauty and will allow you to indulge your romantic side. Fiji offers the finest in accommodations, with most resorts only housing a limited number of bures for the ultimate in privacy.

The Fiji Orchid

If your arrival comes before sunrise, a few hours at The Fiji Orchid is the perfect prologue of what’s to come and leaves you feeling invigorated. This beachside sanctuary offers use of day rooms, or overnight stays, to get your started on your honeymoon, or get you sent off back to reality. Guests can relax in their private bures; enjoy a refreshing dip in a sparkling pool enveloped in a sea of palm trees and birds of paradise. Prepare to be delighted by one of the great things Fiji has to offer: fresh, culinary delights. This is a foodie’s heaven and a relaxation seeker’s delight. 

If seclusion and romance are on top of your honeymoon wish list, then allow Tokoriki resort to fulfill that wish. Once you step foot onto this romantic island, it won’t take long to validate why it was named one of the “Top 10 Most Romantic Destinations in the South Pacific.” Your ultimate quest for privacy and seclusion will be fulfilled here; Tokoriki has only 26 bures and doesn’t allow children under 12. While here, you will have easy access to some of the most stunning coral reefs in the world. Fulfill any activity wish from snorkeling excursions to relaxing spa escapes to private picnics.
