Chances are, Fiji’s been your screensaver at some point. A quintessential paradise of rainforest-laced landscapes, white sandy beaches and glimmering turquoise lagoons, Fiji is as close to paradise as you can get.
You won't find towering hotel blocks here, Fiji's luxury hotels are
intimate, boutique boltholes that focus on privacy and authenticity
(more on that later). But it's not just the hotels that make it so
special for a luxury diving holiday. Fiji has some of the
friendliest people in the world (official) which, combined with
incredible adventures both above and below water, make for a truly
unforgettable luxury holiday.
While there are some 300 islands comprising the archipelago, the
best luxury diving in Fiji is centred around a few key areas, which
are luckily located on the doorstop of some incredible private
island paradises. Take
Qamea Resort & Spa, which is located on the doorstop of the
incredibly colourful dive sites of the Somosomo Strait (think:
White Wall and Rainbow Reef);
Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, where you can dive the
world-famous Namena marine reserve; and no-expense-spared Laucala
Island, which is not only one of the most luxurious private
islands in the world (it's owned by Red Bull billionaire Dietrich
Mateschitz, after all), but also boasts incredible diving close-by,
with shore diving, wrecks, colourful reefs and some of Fiji's most
legendary dive sites (think: Great White Wall), a relatively short
boat trip away.
If you're looking for the perfect blend of luxury meets nature,
luxury diving in Fiji is just the ticket.
