Flights to Fiji
Fiji has amazing beaches, sunny skies and gorgeous resorts. But perhaps its greatest asset is the warmth of its people.
Time and again, you will find yourself greeted by unforced smiles and heart-stirring songs of welcome. If you're travelling with children they will be treated like tiny celebrities. In a world where busy schedules and technology dominate day-to-day life, such natural friendliness can feel like the most precious gift of all.
Families are very well catered for. Fiji's all-inclusive resorts range from sophisticated five-star brands in locations such as Denarau, to one-of-a-kind hideaways on their own private islands. With kids' clubs and a dazzling array of water sports and activities on hand, your younger family members will enjoy every minute (while you enjoy the fact that they're having fun in a safe, supervised holiday environment).
Contrasting with these family-friendly properties is another kind of resort - the couples-only retreat. Often set on heartbreakingly beautiful islands, these boutique properties specialise in tranquil luxury. You can expect private villas, fine dining and high-end spas to be standard to most packages. The goal is top quality one-on-one time, with all mundane concerns taken off the table.
Time and again, you will find yourself greeted by unforced smiles and heart-stirring songs of welcome.
This brings us to another of Fiji's specialities - the destination wedding or honeymoon. Exchanging vows on your special day becomes even more romantic when the wedding party is gathered on a stunning beach at sunset.
Find the perfect place to stay
Best time to go
Pleasantly warm all year round, Fiji's tropical climate is divided into wet and dry seasons. Most visitors prefer the dry season (April to September). The Christmas/New Year break and school holiday periods see a surge in travellers, so you might prefer to avoid these times.
How much will it cost
Food and groceries can summarised under two categories - local and imported. Most imported goods will be at least three times what you would pay at home. However fresh produce from local stalls or markets can be very cheap. If your hotel has not arranged a transfer from Nadi Airport, you can find reputable private transfers to Denarau from FJD $44 one way.
Up-to-date vaccinations against typhoid, tetanus and hepatitis A and B are a good idea. If you're travelling outside the main resort areas, mosquito nets and repellents are recommended, as there is no vaccine against dengue fever. The Zika virus has been reported in Fiji, so pregnant women should seek up-to-date advice on their travel.
New Zealand citizens can enter Fiji without needing to apply for a visa. A stay of up to four months is permitted.
