Located on Fiji’s Beqa Lagoon, Royal Davui is a idyllic island retreat set against a backdrop of white sandy beaches, turqoise waters and fiery sunsets. 16 vales – the Fijian word for home – are nestled among the tropical gardens, each one looking out across the ocean. Decor is stylish and modern but the vales there is an air of tradition with thatched rooves and wooden frames. Each one features a sun deck with private heated plunge pool from where you can relax and spot dolphins and turtles moving through the lagoon. At the heart of the resort is a magnificent Pacific banyan tree which pushes its way up through the Banyan Restaurant. Here you can enjoy fresh seafood, tropical flavours and relaxed dining – or you can choose to enjoy your meal on your private deck or at a number of secluded spots around the island. All meals are included in your stay. The reef surrounding the island is protected and no fishing is allowed within one mile, resulting in waters incredibly rich in marine life. Exploring this underwater world is a highlight of a stay at Royal Davui and guests can swim, snorkel, dive or kayak through the pristine waters. There is a strong eco focus and the resort was designed to exist in harmony with the natural environment. During construction, vales were built in locations which eliminated the need to cut down ancient trees. All the timber was purchased from sustainable plantation stock and waste water is treated and converted into usable garden water.

Likuliku means ‘calm waters’ in the Malolo dialect, and this retreat in the Mananuca Islands is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

These beachfront bures have day beds, a private courtyard and outdoor shower. For something really special, there are ten over-water bures which sit above the sparkling waters of the South Pacific. Dishes at the al-fresco restaurant are fresh, clean and creative with a focus on local seafood and tropical fruits. You can choose to dine at the beachside decks beneath the restaurant for something more intimate or enjoy a romantic picnic on the beach. All meals are included with your stay.
