Activities in Denarau for Adults
We get it, not everyone wants to share their “Fiji time” with over-enthusiastic children. When you’re looking for some special alone time or to just hanging out with mates on a well-deserved getaway, Denarau Island is the perfect place to mix it with luxury. Thanks to the adults-only areas in the five-star resorts and the wealth of bars and private activities, you can choose to spend your Fiji getaway with like-minded travellers or just the people you love. Check out your options in this list of adult-only activities in Denarau.
Note that while we have listed some adult-only activities, we have also included a few ideas where children are allowed to participate but are usually a child-free zone.
While you’re here, don’t miss our Adult-Only Guide to Denarau Island.
1. Relax in a Luxury Adult-Only Area
Denarau Island’s luxury resorts have adult-only facilities and even entire adults-only complexes to allow you to enjoy “Fiji time” undisturbed. One of the most complete adult-only retreats in Denarau is at the Waitui Beach Club within the Sofitel Fiji Resort. The adult-only beach club gives guests a daily welcome pack, as well as facilities like a pool with swim-up bar, gym, private cabanas, champagne bar, restaurant with healthy eating options, live entertainment, pool butler service, fitness programs and more. KORO at the Hilton Fiji Beach & Spa is another fantastic adult-only area with two oceanview pools, a bar and restaurant. Alternatively, Radisson Blu Resort and the Sheraton Fiji Resort have their own adult-only pools and lounging areas.
2. Treat Yourself to a Spa Day
Every resort in Denarau has its own luxurious spa complex. One of the highlights is at The Westin Denarau, home to one of Fiji’s largest spas. Enter a lush garden setting and select one of the experiences from their extensive spa menu. For some alternative spa experiences, or for those visiting Port Denarau for the day, you have a few options to unwind between shopping and exploring, including at Spa Maya, the Oasis Spa and Spa Denarau.
3. Head Out to the Cloud 9 Floating Bar
Just off the coast of Denarau and set above a stunning coral reef is the Cloud 9 floating bar. It’s a beautiful location to relax with friends or your partner, whether it’s on the deck chairs or sun loungers with a drink or a woodfired pizza or out on the water snorkelling with tropical fish.
4. Skydive Over the Islands
That’s right, you can freefall at 200km/h (125mph) from 8,000-14,000ft over the stunning islands of Fiji! While there’s no age limit for skydiving, it’s not often where you’ll see parents taking their kids to jump out of a perfectly good plane. That makes all the more room for an adult-only adventure! Skydive Fiji offer pick-ups from the Denarau resorts.
5. Do a Workout at a Fitness Centre
Every resort mentioned in our 5 Adult-Only Resorts in Denarau has its very own fitness centre giving you an adult-only environment to workout with like-minded people. The adults-only programs, such as at the Waitui Beach Club at Sofitel offers free yoga, pilates and boot camps. Outside of the resorts, the Pacific Fitness gym has a lively fitness timetable including boxing, pump, step fit and more.
6. Rejuvenate with a Yoga Session
A holiday in Fiji is all about reviving your body, mind and soul, so there’s no better way to rejuvenate than with a yoga session complete with stunning ocean views. While some resorts offer yoga classes, don’t miss the sessions with Kama Yoga located in several oceanview locations throughout the week including Sheraton, Rhum-Ba, Westin and at the Pacific Fitness gym.
7. Take a Trip to the Malamala Beach Club
Enjoy the day on the private island at the Malamala Beach Club. The bar is an idyllic tropical location to hang out with friends or have a romantic dinner, with the island bar serving imported wines, beers and handcrafted tropical cocktails. The beach club also has an infinity pool and free access to snorkel gear, stand-up paddleboards and kayaks.
8. Indulge in a Scenic Flight to a Private Beach
For a real “treat yourself” adventure with only the ones you choose to share the experience with, book onto a flight on the Turtle Airways seaplane to a secluded beach in the Yasawa Islands. The five-hour trip gives you and your loved ones the time to explore, snorkel or simply relax on your own private beach. Even your guide will leave you in seclusion, available to call when you need your refreshment cool box filling.
9. Jump on a Private Fishing Charter
For the adventurous angler, make your time out on the water exactly what you want in a private fishing charter. With your own fishing guide, boat and equipment, it’s just you, your loved ones and the exciting array of game fish waiting to be tackled! We’re talking blue marlin, yellowfin tuna, giant trevally, mahimahi and so much more! Check out private charters like PJ Fiji’s departing from Port Denarau.
10. Check out the Nightlife at Port Denarau
While Port Denarau is not where you’ll find your wild party nights (check The Ultimate Guide to Nightlife in Nadi for more of that vibe), the scenic marina has a relaxed and social holiday atmosphere. Check out bars like Cardo’s or the Hard Rock Cafe, with live bands to keep you entertained. Alternatively, the Rhum-Ba is a sophisticated establishment popular with spirit connoisseurs from all over the globe. Check out more recommendations in our Guide to Denarau Nightlife.
