Holiday Homes and Villas
While not exclusively for adults, Fiji’s holiday homes and private villas are worth considering for an adult-only holiday as the accommodations are exclusively for your group. In many cases, holiday homes and villas are on private properties away from other tourists so you don’t have to worry about families disturbing your Fiji time.

Location, How to Get There and What is Nearby?
Once you know what type of accommodation you want to stay in, it’s a good idea to start exploring the different regions and island groups in Fiji to determine the best adult-only accommodation for you. The greatest abundance of adult-only resorts and resorts with adult-only areas can be found on the Coral Coast, Mamanuca Islands, Yasawa Islands, Vanua Levu and Taveuni.
While the Coral Coast is the cheapest and fastest destination to get to from Fiji’s international airport, the outer islands of Fiji come with associated travel time and costs, so factor this into your decision-making. You’ll also want to consider what is nearby because while it’s easy to get to nearby attractions, restaurants, shops and supermarkets on the Coral Coast and in Vanua Levu, you will only have access to the tours and services your resort provides in Fiji’s other outer islands.
