Organising a holiday can be stressful – often trying to get away for a week can be more of a headache than it’s worth! A lot of island resorts understand this and strive to make your time away as easy to organise as possible.
Fiji is recognised as one of the world’s top holiday destinations. An island nation in Melanesia, Fiji is located in the South Pacific Ocean northeast of New Zealand and consists of the mainland island and a number of smaller islands off of the mainland. Viti Levu and Vanua Levu are the two main islands with the first being well known as the mainland and point of arrival for most tourists.
If you wish to stay on the mainland, Sigatoka is a popular holiday spot on the Coral Coast. Sigatoka itself is approx 69km’s from Nadi where the airport is. Many people visit here every year to experience the Sigatoka Sand Dunes (which you can boogie board/surf down) and also the Kula Eco Park which has a focus on preserving Fiji’s native flora and fauna.
But no matter which island you visit the resorts all know how to craft the perfect vacation experience; many will be willing to take on a lot of the hassle involved in organising a holiday. If you don’t want to spend a month planning your week away, find a Fijian resort that can make your trip an easy one.
When you are choosing a Fiji resort, there are facilities and services provided that you should expect to be included with your stay. Location will be the number one selling point for many people choosing to experience an island holiday. The obvious desire for anybody is a resort close to the beach. Take the time to do some research online into what surrounds the area as well. Diving schools, boat rentals, fishing tours and restaurants are all great additions to any location. A lot of resorts will be close to the beach, but some beaches will be better than others with access to more local attractions and amenities.
To make your holiday a little bit easier, many quality locations will have an on-site restaurant and bar. Fijian resorts often employ some of the best chefs on the islands to cook for them; you can enjoy some of the gourmet food available just a short stroll from your room. Swimming pools and tennis courts are other additions to look for that serve to fill in a few hours between activities or when you have some space in your itinerary. Some resorts even offer bikes for hire so you can explore Fiji on two wheels.
Look for a resort that will also help you arrange activities and offer recommendations on the best places to visit on the island. Many will go out of their way to help you organise the perfect Fijian vacation and will be able to offer local knowledge of businesses and people that can take you island hopping, fishing and show you some of the island’s other ‘must do’ activities.
Fiji is one of the world’s best island experiences. Choosing somewhere to stay that offers the most can have a huge impact on your journey. The right resort will help you get the most out of your trip.
