Fiji’s majestic beaches and seclusion are only two of the many titillating reasons why this destination should make the final cut for a couple’s honeymoon plans. The islands’ natural beauty is wrapped up in seductive pampering as only the Fijians can offer.
And for pure paradise, the Namale Resort & Spa, at water’s edge on the Koro Sea in Savusavu, is high on the wish list when it comes to romance. This is a top-of-the-line resort favored by many celebrities who come seeking seclusion and serenity, and honeymooners will find that its allure is rivaled only by its excellent service.
The days begin with the soft sound of a native lali drum and end with walks along beaches lit by torches and moonlight.
With 19 avant-garde bures (bungalows) built on a sea cliff on Vanua Levu, Fiji’s second largest island, Namale is solitude personified. Accommodations are patterned after Fiji’s unique style and have all the modern amenities for a comfortable stay.
Consistently chosen as one of the most romantic places on earth by visitors and magazines, Namale (rates begin at approximately $1,200 per night dbl) has received awards for having “the ultimate number one honeymoon suite in Fiji.” Newlyweds are greeted by smiling staff with a tray of chilled champagne before receiving a welcoming massage.
Couples may have meals brought to their private hammocks or enjoyed next to a waterfall in the rainforest surrounding the property. The resort also features romantic night hikes through the forest to a deck next to a spectacular blowhole where couples like to watch the meteor showers for which the area is known.
