Fiji Happy!

Fijian Warriors, Nanuku Resort

A friend of mine eloped in Fiji many years ago and I remember looking longingly at her photos, wondering if I would get married in such a way. It didn’t happen, but those images of the culture, beauty and peacefulness have stayed with me all these years. However, since having my son, Fiji has been on the long finger – a dream destination that may or may not ever happen.

You are probably like me and think of Fiji as a romantic destination for weddings or honeymoons, but as I have recently learned, this assumption is far from reality. Yes, there are many hotels and island resorts that are for adults only, but there are also an amazing host of gorgeous resorts with amenities catering specifically to families.

I am so excited to share that Yasawa Resort, Nanuku Auberge Resort and the Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa are sponsoring us for an 8 day stay in Fiji. These hotels look amazing and I can’t wait to share our adventures with you all.

Private picnic on the beach, Yasawa Resort

I can’t wait to picnic on a private beach or hike on trails around Yasawa visiting some of the 6 local villages on the island. The island and the resort sound like a true dream getaway.

Back on the main island of Viti Levu, we will stay at two amazingly family friendly resorts. The Intercontinental sits on a gorgeous stretch of beach and looks to have what will surely be my son’s favorite kids pool of all time!

Last but definitely not least, we cannot wait for our time at Nanuku. Have you ever dreamed of taking a vacation with a nanny or babysitter? Well, this is it folks. At Nanuku all children under 12 get their own dedicated nanny/buddy for the duration of their stay. There is also an amazing kids club with scheduled activities and cultural events. This might be the first time ever on a holiday that my husband and I get time together to relax and enjoy each others company.

Now we just have to figure out what is the best time of year to visit and when we can fit it into our schedules! Stay tuned for more updates on our planning process and adventures in Fiji!

    I’ve stayed at Yasawa! I have tips for you to get off the beaten path and things to bring. Yasawa is one of the farthest islands and is quite isolated. The resort likes to take their guests to 2 of the villages, we asked to be taken to others. So glad we did, we went to a village that had not seen an outsider in many years. We visited the school, took an entire village photo and sent them tons of school supplies and copies of the photo for everyone once we returned to the states. What lovely people!!! I miss them! I have more to tell, let’s email offline.

    That’s awesome! I went to Fiji in 2011 as a backpacker and it was fantastic, there’s really something for everyone and every budget there. You’ll have a great time!
