The Best Glamping in Fiji
Sleep under the stars with soothing tropical temperatures by glamping in Fiji. There’s nothing like tying up your tent’s door in the morning to breathtaking vistas of islands, ocean and swaying coconut palms. You don’t, however, have to sacrifice comfort thanks to the glamping experiences available with cleverly designed tents kitted out with comfortable beds. So book yourself a luxurious camping trip using this list of the best glamping accommodation in Fiji.
1. Waitui Basecamp
It’s all about the adventure at the Waitui Basecamp in the Yasawas’ Matacawalevu Island. Stay in one of their gorgeous glamping tents complete with either a double or two single beds, dining furniture and a mat so you can eat Fijian style, bedside lamps and outdoor furniture to enjoy soaking up the sun. Aside from staying in a cool canvas tent, days here are spent snorkelling, freediving, fishing, spearfishing, trips to the Sawa-i-Lau Caves, visiting villages, hiking and island-hopping.

2. Barefoot Kuata Island Resort
We like to think of Barefoot Kuata Island Resort as affordable luxury in the Yasawas, especially with their beachfront safari tents. These large tents are kitted out with timber flooring, bamboo shutters, a queen bed, a private outdoor bathroom and outdoor furniture under the shade. The highlight of the experiences on Kuata is shark snorkelling or scuba diving. Amenities also include three swimming pools, tropical gardens, island walks, conservation programs, private and cultural dining and much more.

3. Dolphin Bay Diver’s Retreat
Escape to one of Fiji’s less-visited islands, Vanua Levu, and stay at the Dolphin Bay Diver’s Retreat, also just a 20-minute boat ride from Taveuni. Stay in one of the retreat’s ultra-affordable safari tents, each kitted up with either a single or a double bed, a locker box, solar lamp and lounge furniture. The main reason to stay here, apart from adventurous glamping, is to snorkel and dive at the famous Rainbow Reef. Find out more in the 10 Best Places to Snorkel in Fiji.

6. The BeeHive Fiji
Finally, one of the most affordable stays on Viti Levu’s Suncoast, The BeeHive Fiji offers a glamping experience, as well as dorm rooms. While the large camping tent isn’t the most Instagrammable, it is equipped with four futon beds for a comfortable night’s sleep. Located on a bee farm (don’t worry, you won’t be sharing your tent with any), The BeeHive Fiji features an outdoor swimming pool with views of the surrounding majestic hills and sugar cane plantations.
