While you’re here, be sure to take a look at our Luxury Guide to the Coral Coast.
1. Enjoy Fine Dining at the Ivi or Navo Restaurant
While the Coral Coast is more about casual island-style dining, there are a few hidden gem-dining venues for a special occasion or simply “just because”. The Ivi Restaurant of the Outrigger Resort is an adult-only fine dining restaurant serving impeccably presented Pacific Continental cuisine. Another superb choice is the Navo Specialty-Dining Restaurant of the InterContinental Resort. Overlooking a scenic lagoon and Navo Island, Navo Restaurant has a glass-walled kitchen to watch fine dining creations being prepared.
2. Indulge in a Luxury Spa Treatment
One of the most indulgent amenities of your luxury resort is the resort day spa. For instance, enjoy the open-air balconies overlooking the Coral Coast from the Bebe Spa of the Outrigger Resort or relax with Asian treatments combined with natural Fijian products at the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort‘s CHI, The Spa. Take a look at more about spa experiences in our 10 Best Day Spas on the Coral Coast.
3. Spend the Day on a Private Fishing Charter
A thrilling adventure awaits on the waters of the Coral Coast teeming with some of the world’s most-rewarding game fish. Join the team from The View on a fishing charter to try your luck at tackling mahimahi, yellowfin tuna, blue marlin and much more! The InterContinental Resort also offers sports fishing as part of its expansive menu of water activities. Alternatively, for a full day out on the water, join Sigatoka Fishing Charters and their expert guides on a private fishing charter with hotel transfers are included.

4. Unwind in the Adult-Only Retreat of Your Luxury Resort
There’s no better place to find peace and serenity than the adult-only areas of your luxury resort… Adult-only areas usually consist of an adults’ pool and a bar/restaurant. For instance, the Reef Wing of the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort is the quiet corner of the complex with an adult-only infinity pool. At the Outrigger Resort, the adult guests have the chance to enjoy tapas and a swim-up bar in the Vahavu Pool. The View Fiji itself is an adult-only resort with only four private villas! Find out more about an adult-only holiday in our Adult Only Guide to the Coral Coast.
5. Treat the Kids (and Yourself) to a Fantastic Kids’ Club
We all know that a holiday with kids doesn’t always feel like a holiday. Make it a holiday to remember for both you and the little ones with the Coral Coast’s fantastic kids’ clubs! Fijians adore children, so the kids will have a blast getting into the cultural crafts, competitions and games of your luxury resort’s kids clubs. Discover more about what the kids’ clubs have to offer in our 7 Best Kids’ Clubs on the Coral Coast.
6. Scuba Dive in the “Soft Coral Capital”
See why Fiji is known for being the “soft coral capital of the world” with a scuba diving trip on the Coral Coast. Five-star resorts like The Warwick Fiji have their own dive centre offering PADI-associated lessons and trips to the Beqa Lagoon marine reserve. Another spectacular luxury dive resort is the InterContinental Resort with no fewer than 15 dive sites all within a five-minute boat trip from the resort!
7. Play Golf at a Championship Course
It’s true, the downside of playing golf on the Coral Coast is that the breathtaking coastal views are too distracting. Otherwise, visitors to the Coral Coast have access to world-class golf courses, such as the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course at the InterContinental Fiji Resort. Other options include the 9-hole course at the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and a golf training facility at the Outrigger Resort. Find out more about these courses in our The Most Luxurious Golf Courses in Fiji.
8. Treat Your Loved One to a Private Dining Experience
Treat that special someone to a luxurious private dinner on the Coral Coast. The Warwick Fiji has an impressive setup at their Lagoon “Romantic” Bure under an intimate gazebo on its own island where you can either dine under the stars or enjoy breakfast for two as the sunrises. In the comfort of The View‘s luxury villa, you’re going to want to make use of the room service’s gourmet meals. Finally, the InterContinental Resort offers private dining experiences at the poolside or in a private cabana along with Pacific Rim cuisine.
9. Enjoy Cultural Entertainment
Sure, every resort on the Coral Coast has some form of cultural entertainment once or twice a week, but what makes the luxury resorts stand out is the nightly entertainment or the small touches that make your stay all the more memorable. It’s impossible to get bored on an evening at the InterContinental Fiji Resort with a nightly schedule of fire dancing, tribal drumming, acoustic duos, live bands and much more. The Outrigger Resort, for example, also does nightly sunset ceremonies and treats guests to a local farewell gift.
10. Celebrate Your Big Day or Honeymoon in Paradise
If your dream wedding is in an island paradise, then you might want to set your sights on the luxury wedding venues of the Coral Coast. A barefoot beach wedding is a staple of this part of Fiji, but finances have more stunning venues from day spas to wedding chapels to choose from. The luxury resorts offer a wide range of weddings packages, as well as honeymoon packages usually involving private dinners, a couples massage and nights in the honeymoon suite.
