Luxury Travel to Viti Levu

If you’re looking for a fly-and-flop getaway, most find Fiji’s main island more than satisfactory. Viti Levu is Fiji’s largest island with several breathtaking destinations within one landmass. Viti Levu is a top choice for luxury travellers on a limited time or perhaps looking for more than just beaches.

Nadi, Denarau and the Coral Coast

You don’t need to travel far from Nadi International Airport before arriving in paradise. Nadi, Denarau and the Coral Coast are the closest regions to the airport ensuring that you transition into “Fiji time” quickly. Nadi has its own small yet indulgent selection of luxury resorts. Wherever you decide to spend your R&R time, you’ll also have the option to enjoy some exclusive tours from helicopter flights to heavenly spa treatments. Go to The Luxury Guide to Nadi for more information.

While Nadi is great, most seeking a luxury holiday close to the airport set their sights on Denarau, a manmade island that is exclusively home to five-star resorts, luxury apartments and private residences. Find out more in The Luxury Guide to Denarau Island.

For those desperate for golden-sand beaches tucked between lush palms and vibrant coral reefs, head to the Coral Coast. Stretching along the southern coast of Viti Levu, the Coral Coast is blessed with some exclusive five-star resorts offering a holiday that dreams are made of. Discover the Coral Coast further in The Luxury Guide to the Coral Coast.

Pacific Harbour, Suva and the Suncoast

Viti Levu’s Pacific Harbour, Suva and the Suncoast might be a little further from the airport, but those seeking adventure or want to get a little off the beaten track will be served here. The Pacific Harbour and Beqa Island are not only home to some of Fiji’s best scuba diving and river tours, but you’ll immerse in pure indulgence with spectacular fine dining and utterly relaxing day spas. Find out more in The Luxury Guide to Pacific Harbour & Beqa.

About 40 minutes drive from the Pacific Harbour is Fiji’s capital, Suva. Jam-packed with culture and city charm, Suva has very few but exclusive luxury accommodations, dining and activities to experience. Learn more in The Luxury Guide to Suva.

One of the best luxuries of the Suncoast is that not many people know about it yet. This northern side of Viti Levu provides a tranquil retreat on the sunniest side of the island. The Suncoast hides a wealth of luxury experiences, from having authentic cuisine prepared in your own private villa to staying on a private island. Find out more in The Luxury Guide to the Suncoast.

Luxury Travel to the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands

A mix of sandy coral atolls and rugged volcanic islands make up the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands. Quick to get to, especially with a helicopter or seaplane charter, these island groups ensure a true island experience just a short flight from Nadi Airport or Denarau.

Mamanuca Islands

The Mamanuca Islands are some of Fiji’s most prestigious islands holding luxury resorts for the ultimate escape to paradise. With fine dining, stylish retreats in your private bure (bungalow), deluxe spas and an array of spectacular water and land activities, there’s enough to do as much or as little as you like on a luxury holiday in the Mamanuca Islands. Find out more about staying here in The Luxury Guide to the Mamanuca Islands.

Luxury Travel to Vanua Levu and Taveuni

Fiji’s northern islands are home to some of the most luxurious boutique resorts in the country, nestled in tropical jungles, tucked away in a secluded bay, or on their own private islands. Vanua Levu and Taveuni are just a one-hour flight from Nadi but feel a world away.

Vanua Levu

Fiji’s second-largest island is much less populated by locals and less visited by tourists, making for a special place to really escape from it all. On top of that, the luxury resorts scattered across the island go above and beyond to help you appreciate why travelling a little longer to get to Vanua Levu is well worth it. Plan your trip to the island in The Luxury Guide to Vanua Levu.


Taveuni island an island where luxury finds you. Whether you see luxury as having every need attended to in a five-star resort, whether it’s the exclusivity of a private island, or whether it’s being in a place where much of the landscape and seascape remains unspoiled… Taveuni and its surrounding islands of Qamea, Matangi and Laucala, hold some of Fiji’s most exclusive resorts. Find out more in The Luxury Guide to Taveuni.

Luxury Travel to Kadavu, the Lomaiviti and Lau Islands

Finally, for those travellers seeking the most remote, exclusive and less developed island getaways, the island groups of Kadavu, the Lomaiviti Islands and the Lau Islands are worth exploring.


Kadavu is one of those rare destinations in Fiji where the luxury accommodation options are limited, with most resorts providing a more “rustic” accommodation experience. That’s with the one exception of Kokomo Private Island, which makes for a fabulous base for scuba diving in the Great Astrolabe Reef, boating to hidden waterfalls, snorkelling with Manta Rays and much more. Find out more in The Complete Guide to Kadavu.

Lomaiviti Islands

Private island resorts dot the azure waters of the Lomaiviti Islands only a 10-minute flight from Suva. The islands are famous for their history, where one town, Levuka, is even listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Area. Find out more in The Luxury Guide to the Lomaiviti Islands.

Lau Islands

The sixty islands that pepper the deep blue waters of Fiji’s eastern reaches make up the Lau Islands. This is Fiji’s least-visited island group and, in turn, the most pristine with uninhabited islands, coral atolls, limestone caves and remote Fijian villages living a traditional way of life. Find out how to get to these remote islands in The Luxury Guide to the Lau Islands.
