1. Fly by Helicopter or Seaplane Over the Islands of Fiji
When it comes to exceptional views of the Fiji islands, don’t settle for anything less than the best.

4. Spend the Day in the Serene Adult-Only Complex of Your Resort
We get it, not everyone shares the joy of over-enthusiastic children splashing in the swimming pool. Resorts like Radisson Blu and the Sheraton Fiji Resort have adult-only pools and lounging areas. Alternatively, amp up the experience at the Waitui Beach Club at the Sofitel Resort or KORO at The Hilton, which provide a complete adult-only experience. Relax in the pools with a swim-up bar, taste delectable sharing platters and drinks at the adult-only bars, be waited on in your own private cabana, and enjoy fitness programs from yoga to boot camps.
5. Take Your Loved Ones or “The Boys” on a Private Fishing Charter
One of the most exciting private luxury experiences out on the water is a private fishing charter. With your own fishing guide, boat and equipment, you’ll be ready to take on mahimahi, blue marlin, yellowfin tuna, giant trevally or smaller catches in the reefs. Check out private fishing tours with PJ’s Sailing Adventures.
