Discover Fiji

Luxurious blues and romantic whites, the islands of generous smiles

There is a warmth to Fiji that is only partly explained by the gorgeous year-round temperature. The communal spirit so inherent in Fijian culture translates to visitors being welcomed generously, with each vibrant greeting of “Bula” accompanied by a sincere and gracious smile. Such unaffected kindness has earned this Pacific nation a reputation for being one of the world’s friendliest. Fiji as a travel destination is synonymous with romance and luxurious getaways, an association that is truly justified - though Fiji is like a diamond, with each facet reflecting the nation’s diversity. Its blend of Melanesian, Polynesian, Micronesian, Indian, Chinese and European cultures results in a multicultural society - though Fiji hums with a unified community spirit. Encompassing more than 330 islands and 500 islets, the ample charms within Fiji’s arms satisfy the needs of every traveller, from the adventurous to the languorous. From resort-style to traditional Fijian; lush forests to sparking Pacific waters; relaxation to exciting adventure – the beautiful diamond of Fiji can be enjoyed from every angle.
