Volivoli Beach Resort on Fiji’s Viti Levu Island is in a storybook setting of sugarcane fields, cascading waterfalls and colourful coral reefs. If you’re a diving enthusiast or keen to get your PADI, this is the spot to explore the azure Bligh Waters teeming with tropical marine life. Closer to the coastline, you can snorkel on the house reef and treat yourself to an encounter with ghost pipefish and seahorses.
For those seeking something more low-key, the oceanfront swimming pool is a great place to catch up on some reading. Or you can swing from a hammock on the beach and wait for sunset, also known as cocktail o’clock.
Wander along garden paths lined with hibiscus and frangipani trees to your Premium Ocean View Villa, where you can take in uninterrupted ocean views from your terrace day bed. A modern interpretation of a traditional Fijian home, you’ll rest well in your space with whitewashed vaulted ceilings and those quintessential Polynesian wood shutters.
Come diner, you can dine at farm-to-table restaurant Nuku Bar and Grill. The eatery focuses on showcasing hyper-local ingredients in dishes like Kokoda Fish–try out the walu steamed in breadfruit leaves.
