Things to Do in Suva with Your Loved One
In Suva for a special occasion, like a wedding or anniversary? Then treat your loved one to one of the romantic activities in Suva for couples! Yes, the capital city might not be the perfect picture of romance, especially when compared to the breathtaking landscapes and sparkling waters of the outer islands, but there are a few things in Suva worth doing for a bit of romance. Here are just a few ideas…
1. Indulge in a Relaxing Couples Massage
Unwind together in one of the city’s spectacular spas. Pure Fiji Day Spa is the headquarters of Fiji’s famous spa product brand where couples can indulge together in a couples treatment. Alternatively, the Bliss Spa at the Grand Pacific Hotel has treatment rooms especially for couples within their luxury hotel. See more of your options in our list of the 6 Best Day Spas in Suva.
2. Enjoy Fine Dining Together in one of Suva’s Gourmet Restaurants
While there are many fantastic eateries in Suva, make it extra special by going to one of the fine dining or gourmet restaurants. The Prince Albert Restaurant is Suva’s exclusive fine dining establishment situated in the Grand Pacific Hotel. The Five Princes Hotel restaurant, amidst a tropical garden setting, serves creatively presented food to sample while watching the South Seas sunset. In the city, there are also plenty of dining experiences worth saving for a special occasion, such as the exquisite seafood and curry dishes at the Saffron Tandoori Restaurant or a teppanyaki show at the popular Daikoku Japanese restaurant. See more of our recommendation in our Guide to the Best Eats & Restaurants in Suva.
3. Treat Your Loved One to a Beach or Forest Picnic
Surprise your loved one by organising a picnic on the beach. While the closest mainland beaches to Suva are along the Pacific Harbour, which is worth the journey, another option is the beach on Mosquito Island. The island has picnic benches and needs to be booked through the Suva City Council. Or if you and your partner prefer the romantic flair of a tropical forest, then find yourself a quiet corner in the Colo-i-Suva Forest Park. The walks through the park have various picnic tables and waterfalls making for a romantic setting to spend some time together. Wherever you choose, you’ll be able to grab yourself some food from the Suva markets to make up a tropical picnic.
4. Tackle Mt Korobaba Together
Taking on a challenge together is a fantastic way to strengthen your bond! Climbing up to Suva’s highest peak, Mt Korobaba, rewards with sensational 360-degree views across Suva, Beqa Island, the harbour and beyond. Getting there is half the adventure with an attractive walk through lush tropical forest. This walk starts behind the cement manufacturers in Lami, taking around three hours to walk up and back down again.
5. Take a Day Trip to the Pacific Harbour
Finally, you can’t visit Suva without visiting the Pacific Harbour. Less than one hour’s drive along the Queens Road, the Pacific Harbour has something for every kind of couple, from the adventurous wanting to explore the villages and waterfalls of the Navua River to the relaxed who want to unwind with a round of golf or snorkel in the coral reefs of Beqa Island.
