They say that a woman’s wedding is the most magical day of her life. But the truth is, a wedding can be a stress filled day. There are guests to worry about, there are events to plan, and everything has to be perfect.
The Honeymoon, on the other hand, needs to be stress free. It still needs to be perfect, but at least it should be stress free.
The ultimate stress free honeymoon is an island escape in Fiji. A beautiful and tranquil week on a pacific island is the dream honeymoon for many new couples, but if not planned right, even Fiji can be less then perfect.
How To Plan the Perfect Fiji Honeymoon
If you are trying to plan the perfect Fiji honeymoon, the first thing you need to consider is location. Fiji is made up of over 300 islands and 500 islets. For a perfect Fiji honeymoon, you want to find someplace romantic, and secluded. For that, we suggest getting off the large islands, and heading to a resort on one of the smaller island chains like the Yasawa or Mamanuca island chain.
For a more private, natural setting, the Yasawa islands are a prime pick. Being closed off to land based tourism until the late 1980’s, the Yasawa islands offer a unique, experience by allowing you to experience Fiji without the over commercialization commonly found at resort destinations.
The Yasawa Islands are dotted with small resorts that range in price from budget friendly, to all-inclusive luxury. Although dorm style accommodations are not good for a honeymoon, most resorts will still offer private bore’s (Fijian for villa) that range in size and cost. Look for what is best for you and your budget.
Even on your honeymoon, you won’t spend all your time in your room. Fiji has many great activities to choose from, and you should plan some out before hand. You can go kayaking or sailing in a pristine, calm lagoon, or scuba diving or snorkeling in the amazing coral reefs. You can visit a real Fijian village, and take part in a Kava ceremony, or take a trip up to the magnificent Sawa-i-lau caves. Many of the resorts offer unique activities like forest hikes, or horseback riding on the beach. You may wish to consider what activities you are interested in before choosing the resort you wish to stay at.
Whatever resort you choose, and activities you decide to take part in, you should consider transportation as well. Getting around the Fijian islands by boat can be time consuming and inconvenient. Turtle Airways offers seaplane resort transfers, day trips, scenic flights and custom charters.
A low flying scenic flight to your Fiji honeymoon resort can truly make for a romantic time that you will remember and cherish for the rest of your lives together. Imagine arriving to your honeymoon resort from the air, landing in the shimmering lagoon, and disembarking right on the beach. What a way to start a perfect Fiji Honeymoon!
