2. Get the “Castaway” Experience on an Uninhabited Island
What’s more romantic than spending the day marooned on an uninhabited island? This experience can be fabricated by Toberua Island Resort who take couples to a sandbank for a day of snorkelling, swimming and sunbathing. At Leleuvia Island Resort, they’ll transport you to the aptly-named “Honeymoon Island”, which is an isolated sandbank for a private island experience. Finally, Wakaya Club & Spa can arrange private beach picnics just about anywhere on their private island.
3. Learn to Scuba Dive Together
If you thought the verdant islands with white beaches and volcanic peaks of the Lomaivitis were stunning then wait until you discover the underwater world. A diverse range of hard and soft coral attract amazing marine species such as turtle, eagle rays, reef sharks, eels, sea snakes and thousands of reef fish. While a beginners dive is a great introduction to the deep, you can take it a step further by learning to scuba dive together on a three-day PADI Open Water course with Toberua Island Resort.
4. Get Competitive with a Game of Golf, Tennis or Volleyball
The wedding and honeymoon resorts of the Lomaiviti Islands are set up to provide a stress-free island lifestyle for their guests (with a few modern comforts). That includes sports to unwind and get competitive with each other! Golf courses are found on Toberua Island and Wakaya Island, while Wakaya Island also has a fully lite tennis court. Swimming pools are also a romantic place to relax and refresh together, whether it’s a private pool at the Wakaya Club & Spa or the resort pool at Toberua Island Resort, the Royal Hotel or the Ovalau Holiday Resort.
5. Enjoy a Private Candlelit Dinner
Want to surprise your loved one? Perhaps to pop the question or… just because? Set the mood with a private dinner in a secluded area of the resort decorated with candles. This is a staple that most of the island resorts in the Lomaivitis do, but you will need to book this experience at reception so that they can set up a special spot. Ask about private candlelit dinners at the Leleuvia Island Resort, Toberua Island Resort and Wakaya Club & Spa.
6. Explore the Waters by Kayak, Paddleboard or Outrigger Canoe
While there are plenty of guided activities available on the islands of the Lomaivitis, it’s the moments alone that you’ll treasure on your romantic getaway. One way to spend some alone time is by paddling out with one of the complimentary kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, or in the case of the Leleuvia Island Resort, outrigger canoes. These offer a peaceful way to explore the shores, secluded beaches and coral reefs without distraction – making you feel more connected with nature and each other.
7. Enjoy Your Honeymoon Bonus
When booking your island stay in the Lomaivitis, it’s always worth mentioning that you will be on your honeymoon (if, of course, you are). Toberua Island Resort, for instance, offers a “Honeymoon Bonus” for couples staying five nights or more. The bonus includes a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine on arrival, a Toberua sulu (sarong) each, and a 30-minute massage each.
