Tokoriki Island is part of the stunning Mamanuca group of Fijian islands, sat 35km west of Viti Levu, meaning the award-winning, adult only resort can be reached from Nadi International Airport in just a few minutes by helicopter or seaplane, or an hour by boat. There are 36 beachfront bures – Fijian for a wood-and-straw hut, though these are far more opulent than that may suggest – 14 of which have their own pools, and 10 pool villas, with the Pacific Ocean just a few steps away. Each enjoys a tropical outdoor shower and are set amid lush palms, all facing west for fabulous sunset views. Dine on fresh South Pacific and Asian influenced menus, either under the palm trees or on a romantic oceanfront deck, perhaps enjoying a special evening of Teppanyaki at the award winning Oishii restaurant or the simple pleasures of a picnic on the beach. As well as relaxing on the sand or by the spectacular infinity pool, there’s a spa to indulge in and a plethora of activities. Explore island and its plants with ancient healing properties on a guided nature walk, visit a local village on a nearby island or go island hopping and out on fishing trips. There’s also snorkelling, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, windsurfing, a PADI dive centre, tennis courts, beach picnics and more.
While on Tokoriki Island, explore the rich waters with complimentary activities such as stand-up paddle boarding, hobie cat sailing, windsurfing, snorkelling and kayaking. You can also hike the interior, go on fishing and boating trips, learn about the local flora and fauna, learn to dive, kick back at the spa, visit local villages, picnic on the beach and more.

With over 300 islands to explore and turquoise water as far as the eye can see, Fiji is the perfect destination for a luxury cruise. Weave your way through the Mamanuca and Yasawa Islands aboard the Fiji Princess, a small vessel that allows you to discover inlets and bays not accessibly by the larger cruise ships. The 179-foot Fiji Princess features 32 cabins, accommodating up to 68 passengers. All cabins are above the waterline and feature large windows with ocean views. There is a shaded sky deck with sun loungers, an open-air restaurant, library and splash pool as well as a spa offering a range of rejuvenating treatments. There are three itineraries to choose from, lasting three, four or seven nights. Cruises depart from Denarau Marina on Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu, but there are also transfer services from some of the Mamanuca Island resorts if you are combining the cruise with a hotel stay. Dining on the cruise is a real treat with a mix of a la carte, barbecues and buffet. Fresh tropical fruits and seafood are the stars of the show but there is also a delicious range of internations dishes. A real highlight of the cruise is the Fijian lovo feast on a private beach. A lovo is an earth oven and this is a traditional way of preparing food for ceremonies and special occasions. All meals, including morning and afternoon tea, are included in your cruise. There is so much to discover which is why sailing time is limited to four hours a day. This means there is plenty of time to swim, snorkel, dive or relax on the white powedery sands of Fiji’s beautiful beaches. There are also clear kayaks, glass-bottomed boats and stand up paddleboards for guests to use. For those wanting to learn more about Fijian culture there is the option to visit local communities, learn the art of basket weaving and coconut husking and take part in a traditional kava ceremony where you’ll get to drink Fiji’s national drink, made from the pulverised root of a kava plant.
Check into the Fiji Princess cruise ship and meet your crew and fellow passengers before enjoying a delicious lunch on board. The Sacred Islands provide a breathtaking backdrop and the rest of your day is spent here enjoying these idyllic tropical islands. It’s up to you how you spend your time in this stunning setting. Enjoy a swim, wander the beaches, kayak in the lagoon and just enjoy the feeling of being in this beautiful part of the world.
In the afternoon, master the art of Fiji high tea and learn how to make roti in a lolo - an earth oven - and enjoy the fruits of your labour with lemon tea. Back on board enjoy cocktails, cold beer and wine on the upper deck before a captain's dinner to properly welcome you. The a la carte menu is served in the dining saloon and entertainment is provided by a talented singing, dancing and guitar playing crew. Anchor in Yalobi Bay.
Laze on the sun deck as you cruise past several of the larger Yasawa Islands and beautiful bays en route to the famed Blue Lagoon. This superb stretch of water is encircled by islands, creating a lagoon that is filled with fascinating coral reefs easily seen from the surface of the crystal clear waters. One of the islands, Nanuya Lailai, is home to Blue Lagoon Cruises very own private beach. The crew will bring the vessel right up to the beach and tie her off to a coconut tree. Lunch is served on board, whilst on shore the private Fiji-style beach club awaits, with sun loungers, bar, beach volleyball and massages on offer. You’ll have plenty of time for swimming, snorkelling, fish feeding, viewing coral from the glass-bottom boat or just wandering along to a secluded stretch of beach. There will also be a coconut demonstration where you'll see how to climb a palm, get the coconut and husk it, and then enjoy fresh coconut milk.
Diving for both novices and experienced divers can be pre-booked for this location. There are many awesome dive sites within easy reach and there is also a number of guided ‘reef safari’ snorkelling tours to show you the best spots around the island.
Happy hour is served on the beach bar along with canapes, and tonight you'll get to enjoy a traditional lovo meal, where the food is cooked underground in a specially prepared pit. Watch the unearthing of the lovo and be tantalised by the smells before enjoying dinner under the coconut palms and the stars. Following dinner is a fantastic meke performance with singing, dancing and storytelling by a group of local villagers. Anchor at Nanuya Lailai.
Enjoy an early morning swim in the azure waters, head ashore to the beach or paddle a kayak in the surrounding tranquil waters before sitting down to an a la carte breakfast of fresh tropical fruits, yogurts, cereals, fruit juices, tea and coffee.
Most of the day is spent at leisure at the private beach. An easy guided walk along the beach and up over the hill to the other side of the island is offered, where you'll be rewarded with spectacular views out across the Blue Lagoon. You'll see village gardens, local island residences and arrive at Lo's Tea Shop on the beach where you can enjoy Lo's famous cakes and browse the shell market. A water taxi whisks you back to the vessel.
Other activities offered include basket weaving, woodcarving, diving (additional cost), and guided 'reef safari' snorkelling trips. A delicious buffet lunch is served in the dining bure on shore before the Fiji Princess heads north to the mystical island of Sawa-I-Lau. Afternoon tea is served on board as you cruise.
On arrival, you'll set off on a private guided visit to the Sawa-I-Lau caves. Steps rise from the shore up to the first cave, and you can view the majestic cavern from the stairs or take to the water. A short swim through an underwater passage takes you into the second of these stunning limestone caves.
This evening includes a visit to the village of Tamusua. A yaqona ceremony, a guided walk around the village and a Fiji village-style feast prepared and cooked by the village women awaits you. This is not a feast tailored for visitors but one exactly as the village would hold themselves for special occasions. You will enjoy Fijian food and share stories with the villagers about their culture and their home.
Return to Fiji Princess for a movie night. Pull up a chair or a sun lounger on the upper theatre deck, get a cold drink in hand and enjoy the one movie that just has to be shown on a Blue Lagoon Cruise - the classic 'Blue Lagoon' starring Brooke Shields. Anchor at Tamusua Bay.
Today you will head out of the bay towards Drawaqa Island. On arrival, a marine biologist will tell you all about the local fish, marine life and the conservation work the Vinaka Fiji Volunteer team are doing in this area. If you are lucky enough to be here during May to October, then an introduction to the magnificent manta rays, whose feeding ground is just nearby, will be included. Conditions permitting you will have the opportunity to snorkel with these wonderful creatures in small escorted groups. From October to April a guided 'reef safari' snorkelling tour takes you to see the prolific corals, clams and marine life in this area. This is also a superb dive area.
If getting wet is not really your thing, then two other great activities are on offer. Visit a local village school where Vinaka Fiji volunteers are at work. Or, for a truly exhilarating experience, have a go at abseilinh from the island cliff top to the stunning waters below.
Dinner this evening is a barbecue served on the upper deck under the stars! A special feast and party night is the perfect way to celebrate your time in the Yasawas. Anchor Drawaqa Island.
It is an early start on this final morning as you set sail and return to Denarau Marina. All guests will be farewelled with the traditional Isa Lei song from the crew, as your exploration of the beautiful Yasawa Islands comes to an end.
