Ahh… Magnificent Fiji. Fiji is an absolute island paradise, what’s with its pristine white beaches and absolutely gorgeous, sparkling azure waters. And with over 300 islands to explore at this archipelago, there’s endless things to see and do here!

Need any more convincing on why you should totally jet off to this exotic destination soon? Well, then read on to find out!  

First of all, these overwater bures will make you feel like you’ve stepped straight into a movie

Overwater bures (the Fijian word for a wood-and-straw hut) will make you feel like the tropical island prince/princess that you’ve always wanted to be! Likuliku Lagoon Resort is the first place in Fiji that offers such overwater bures (the other being Koro Sun Resort), with only 10 such exclusive bures at their resort. What they lack in quantity, though, is definitely made up for in terms of quality!

With the chef personally delivering canapes right to your doorstep every sunset, an opulent bathtub with a view of the ocean, and many more swanky perks available to you here, your dream tropical paradise getaway awaits you. Combined with the fact that it’s above the gorgeous, irresistible waters and soft coral of Fiji, this will definitely make your vacation a thousand times better!  

Resorts that will make you feel like a million bucks

With only 10 overwater bures available at Fiji, booking one might be pretty hard. Not to worry, though, because there’s plenty of other absolutely spectacular island-chic accommodations at Fiji that’ll definitely amp up those tropical beach vibes! I could go on and on… But let’s just have the photos speak for themselves, shall we?

Fiji’s only two-level floating restaurant, Cloud 9 is a totally apt name for this gorgeous restaurant. Think: a fully-stocked bar, wood-fired Italian pizza, day beds, hanging chairs, sun decks… And not to mention the surrounding pristine-blue waters!
