In a long string of tropical islands just northwest of the main island of Fiji, lies the paradise luxury resort location known as Turtle Island. This private island is populated by none but the staff and visitors to its 14 secluded bures (Fijian cottages). Each bure enjoys its own private beach and is beautifully decorated and fully stocked and equipped with all modern amenities. Turtle Island is the perfect get away spot for romancing and honeymooning couples, a true gem in the throes of paradise.
Each bure is uniquely built and adorned, but all of these two-room, traditional Fijian cottages have the following benefits in common: hardwood flooring, a majestic king-sized bed, plenty of light flooding in through the many windows, an excellent view of the peaceful waters of Blue Lagoon, a roomy dressing area, writing desk, walk-in shower inside, open-air shower outside, a hot tub, and a veranda for day naps with a palm-shaded queen-sized bed. Each bure is extremely spacious and is a luxurious home away from home. Deluxe bures add: an extra indoor shower, a sitting room with rattan, and more. The most popular of all the bures, however, is that on Vonu Point which is is considered the premium bure of the whole island for its breathtaking, panoramic view. All bures are wonderfully romantic and relaxing with the pleasant aromatic scent of Fijian blooms wafting in on the gentle breeze.
Private breakfasts on your own personal beach, private or group picnics, and dinners on a lantern-lit miniature pontoon, alone by the light of the moon, or at scheduled events with the other island guests are all options. Yellow fin tune, lobster, crab meat, Australian beef, abundant Fijian fruits, and an international selection of top-quality wines are all on the menu. Professional cooks ensure that dishes are prepared with perfection, and after-dinner performances offer a peek at native music and culture.
Numerous activities on both land and water are constantly at guests’ disposal for no extra charge. You can enjoy swimming, surfing, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, fishing, coasting along in a sail boat, and admiring the incredible fish and sea life that inhabit the island’s coastal waters. On land, you can hike the island’s pathways, explore on horseback, tour native gardens, join in a game of beach volleyball, and survey the tropical jungle and colorful bird life. Special annual events like Yellowfin Tun Run and the Baby Turtle Release add to the excitement.
The superior accommodations, scenic beauty, and large selection of activities to engage in render Turtle Island of Fiji one of the premier resorts in the Pacific and in the world, and especially fitting for romantic getaways and beach-side weddings.
It is easy to arrive on the island by small sea plane or boat from the Fijian capital Suva, and arrangements can easily be made by contacting a travel specialist at conciergetraveldesign.com.
