Luxe private island resort off Fiji's Coral Coast, with family-friendly amenities and awesome ocean views
Located on a private island connected to mainland Fiji by a causeway, Shangri-La's Fijian Resort & Spa is surrounded by 109 acres of lush grassland studded with coconut palms and frangipani trees overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The resort has a simple Hawaiian-style design, enhanced by earth tones, hand-carved Fijian wood paneling and traditional tapa cloth decor. With 442 rooms, three pools, six restaurants, a sea sports center and a spa, you can get your Fijian fix at this family-friendly resort without having to leave the grounds.
Bed and Bath
In comparison to the stylish mosaic-tiled and wood-paneled public spaces, guestroom interiors are fuss-free, with modern wooden furnishing, bamboo bedframes, earth-tone lounge chairs and large balconies. All offer panoramic sea views. Bathrooms blend in seamlessly, with sandy brown tiles, walk-in showers and panel windows that open up to the Pacific.
At the resort’s spa, the six treatment rooms are tastefully designed and kitted out with ornate doors, wooden carvings, extra-high ceilings, outdoor showers and bathtubs, and even double beds facing the ocean (for the exclusive Dusk Till Dawn spa package.) Adventure seekers will be thrilled with the array of activities on offer at the resort’s water sports center, from snorkeling to mangrove kayaking tours and parasailing. As part of the resort’s conservation efforts, the marine center organizes activities to educate children about the environment. Each of the six restaurants at the resort specializes in a different cuisine. Try Takali Terrace for authentic Asian seafood, or the Golden Cowrie Restaurant for traditional Italian. To sample true Fijian flavors, the weekly Fijian magiti at the Marau Village gives you the chance to try local food cooked in a lovo (traditional underground oven) and watch a meke dance performances.
