7 Super Romantic Resorts in Fiji, Hold the Squealing Children

Fiji hotels

With its white sand and azure waters, friendly local culture and countless activities, from catching song and dance performances, and snorkelling or diving, to spending an afternoon island hopping via catamaran, Fiji was made for romance.

But as much as the archipelago nation is known for adults-only resorts catering to love, it’s equally looked to for kids-friendly, family stays. So, what to do if you want to ensure you’re getting the best of the former?

To help you find the best fit romantic resort in Fiji for you, we’ve rounded up a few of our favourites here. From resorts with dedicated adults-only areas, including pools and restaurants, to others with not a soul under 16 years old, these are seven of the best accommodation in Fiji sans kids.

InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa, Natadola

You’ll find InterContinental Fiji tucked into 14 hectares of tropical gardens along Natadola Beach, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Though the award-winning hotel does allow all ages, its infinity pool is adults-only, and it has dedicated adults-only meal times. The resort’s on-site restaurant Navo allows only adults for breakfast and dinner between 7pm and 10pm. Club InterContinental guests also get Club lounge access, which serves complimentary sunset cocktails and canapés for adults-only every day from 5pm to 7pm.

Shangri-La Yanuca Island, Yanuca Island

Shangri-La Yanuca Island can be found on a private island on Viti Levu’s Coral Coast. While it does cater to families, too, the resort has an adults-only area called Reef Wing that sprawls across more than a quarter of the island. There, you’ll find a dedicated check-in, lunchtime dining options and an adults-only infinity pool. Complimentary cocktails and canapes are served at the pool, daily.

Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa, Denarau Island

Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa is located on Denarau Island, which neighbours Nadi, the island you’ll land on, making the journey to get here a breeze. While the resort caters to all types of travellers, its Waitui Beach Club is an adults-only sanctuary within it. On arrival, guests are served a drink, given a cold towel and shown to their cabana. Then, they can spend an afternoon sipping chilled rosé by the pool, swimming in the cool waters of the Pacific Ocean or long lunching on fresh, local produce at the club’s restaurant.

Likuliku Lagoon Resort, Yaro

An adults-only retreat, Likuliku Lagoon Resort is the first resort to Fiji to be built with authentic, overwater bures. They spill across a natural ocean lagoon that’s surrounded by a protected marine sanctuary, meaning the water is teeming with sea life. The resort was designed with Fijian cultural values and traditional designs and architecture in mind. Spend your time simply relaxing at the resort or book an experience including a village tour, fishing lesson or surf session.

It’s adults-only and geared towards romance, with ‘lomani’ meaning ‘love’ in Fijian. Though you might want to leave the resort during your stay, if you do, you’ll be treated to nearby sights including a local church and traditional village. You’re also welcome to make use of the facilities at Lomani’s sister resort, Plantation Island Resort, too.

Turtle Island Resort, Nanuya Levu

At Turtle Island Resort, you could barely see other guests if you didn’t want.

Aside from remote relaxing, snorkelling or swimming on a beach, guests can indulge in a Fijian-style massage at the resort’s spa, take a horseback riding lesson or learn to scuba dive. The resort aims for stays here to be focused on culture, community and connection.
