Fiji Accommodation

Fiji accommodation is as diverse as the 320+ islands that make up this area. There are more than 50 hotels and resorts spread out over the islands ensuring whatever your taste or budget, there is something for you. Most accommodation can be found on Fiji's two largest islands, Vitu Levu and Vanua Levu however there are more scattered throughout the smaller islands. The facilities at each hotel and resort vary as much as the islands themselves. Depending on your particular accommodation, you can enjoy access to day spas, fully equipped gyms and massive lagoon style pools. While some hotels target budget travellers, all are quality accommodation.

Fiji Activities

Fiji has a range of activities to suit everyone and they can be as relaxing or adventurous as you like. Spend your holidays relaxing around the pool and your nights dining in style or strolling along the beach. But if action and adventure is more your style there are plenty of activities to get your pulse racing. Many of the activities revolve around water sports (it is an island after all!) and depending on your skill level you can try your hand at diving, snorkelling, parasailing and golfing. Tours and cruises are other excellent ways to experience the striking beauty of this tropical oasis in comfort and style. The list of activities that resorts have to offer are almost endless so check with your accommodation provider to see what other attractions they offer. If you love the night life (and got to boogie!) there are countless cultural shows, night clubs and bars around the islands where you can work your way through the cocktail list until the wee hours of the morning.

Fiji Weather

Fiji welcomes you with sunny days and a warm tropical climate between late March and early December. This is the best time to visit, however maximum temperatures sit between 26 °C and 31 °C year round so Fiji is definitely thongs and shorts weather. A refreshing trade wind blows from the east south-east and will keep even the most active visitors cool, so whether you're climbing a village walk or tearing it up with a 4WD tour it's no sweat! Fiji does experience a wet season during November to April however these brief, heavy showers are localised. As a tropical island, the wet season is a vital part of Fiji's climate and is responsible for the lush environment and plant life that is so plentiful there. Cyclones do occur in Fiji but are normally confined to the wet season.

Fiji Facts

Fiji is a nation of islands in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean over 2,000 km northeast of New Zealand. Fiji is made up of 320 islands, however many of these are uninhabited. Fiji has two main islands, Vanua Levu and Vitu Levu, the latter of which is home to Fiji's capital Suva to the east and on the west coast, Nadi (pronounced "Nandi"). Nadi is home to the international airport and where visitors first arrive. From here, visitors will be transferred to the other islands either by boat or air, depending on their proximity. The Mamanuca Group of islands is located close to Nadi airport and play host to the most popular resorts in Fiji.
