Honeymoon Destination: Fiji

Honeymoon Destination FijiAn idyllic and relaxing tropical paradise, Fiji is a haven for honeymoons and destination weddings. The people here are so warm and friendly that no matter what resort you stay in, you will probably be greeted with hugs, or mothered by the female staff with genuine concern and hospitality. The easygoing atmosphere will make it easy for you to chill out and go with the flow.

Where else but on these 333 islands can you swim with huge, harmless manta rays that have congregated by the shore, snorkel over giant rainbow gardens of soft coral, or stay secluded and float in the calm, quiet waters of a azure lagoon at sunset. With the pristine white sand between your toes; sweet aromas of tropical flowers wafting through the air; warm ocean breezes rustling palm tree fronds overhead and stunning sunsets reflecting off the turquoise water Fiji will enchant the bride and groom and make it a memorable experience that you will want to relive over and over.

Once the hectic schedule of your wedding is over, experience romantic bliss in a relaxed and stress-free paradise. Beneath a tropical sun, you will joyfully mingle among a swirl of warm water and warmer smiles while fragrant flower leis and refreshingly sweet and cool concoctions fill your senses. You may be guided down the silky sand and palm lined beach toward your beachfront bure (a Fijian cottage) or you may have your hearts quicken in anticipation as you wade ashore to your very own private island where you will indulge yourselves with vintage champagne and lobster picnics.

The days will pass effortlessly as you unwind in your all-inclusive resort honeymoon suite with king size beds, jetted spa tubs, double showers, a well stocked fringe, and a cozy hammock for two, where, in constar view, the exotic sea enchants and invites. Whatever your plans, come and discover why Fijians are known as the world’s best hosts and dive into the Fiji honeymoon that you will never forget.
