You don’t have to think too hard about why you want a sun-kissed summer holiday in the middle of winter. While the cold chill is getting you down it’s very reassuring to know there is a hot tropical climate with endless beaches and beautiful coral reefs awaiting you, just a few short flight hours away – Fiji!
Fiji offers so much when it comes to providing the ultimate relaxation holiday with your family or friends. Couples, too, can enjoy the many splendours on offer in this island-filled paradise in the South Pacific.
Among the many incentives to pack your bikini and boardies and get on the first plane to Fiji are Villa Getaways’ favourite five reasons to holiday in Fiji.
Fiji is so close to Australia that it certainly warrants a look-in for your next holiday choice. Flight times from the east coast are roughly four hours, while Fiji Airways launches direct flights from Adelaide to Nadi this month (June 30). Fiji’s time zone is only two hours ahead of AEST, so there’s no major jet leg to worry about.
Ditch those winter layers and pack a sarong or two. No don’t, because you’ll be able to buy plenty when you arrive in beautiful balmy Fiji. Both Suva and Nadi have markets, while local villagers often sell sarongs from their island homes. The South Pacific province is close enough to Equator to provide year-round warmth so you can swim in the temperate crystal-clear waters that surround most of the 300+ islands in the Fijian archipelago whenever you like. Take advantage of outstanding snorkelling and world-renowned dive sites, with an abundance of marine life inhabiting the numerous coral reefs in the region. Do your research before you go, then choose a luxury Fijian villa close to the best surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving spots – depending on your preference. Or perhaps, lazing by a pool or taking a dip in the warm waters off your island beach is more your style. Remember, November to April is the wet season with daily rainfall of heavy, quick showers.
3. Family Friendly
Forget being strung-out and sleep-deprived on your holiday, the warm, friendly Fijians thoroughly enjoy looking after little people, so you can relax knowing your kids are in good hands with plenty of fun-filled summertime activities to keep them occupied. Fiji is the place for taking time out for mental health. Forget dragging resistant toddlers around art galleries in France or even the exhaustion of Disneyland in the US, when you have a sun-lazing nirvana so close to your shores. The Fijian culture typically cherishes children and the nanny services are so budget-friendly you’ll be able to organise plenty of romantic moments to share with your partner. Nannies can be free with your luxury villa or cost anywhere between $8 per hour to $15 per day (depending on where you stay), which provides the perfect opportunity for you to enjoy some downtime, while still enjoying the company of your kids after they’ve been entertained all day.
Even if you’re enjoying five-star luxury your dollar goes much further in Fiji. Taking the family to The Whitsundays would cost twice as much as packing them onto a plane and jetting off to gorgeous Fiji. Splurge on dining and stunning private Fiji villa accommodation to top off your luxury holiday experience. Whether you’re on a budget or treating yourself to first class indulgence, Fiji offers a great-value holiday for you and your family.
5. Relaxed Atmosphere
Say “Bula” to a low-key lifestyle for the duration of your stay. The local Fijians are a joy. They’re family-oriented, kind and welcoming people with an easygoing and friendly attitude. Fiji is all about relaxation and taking time out from the digital blitz of work and home. Tune out, switch off and reconnect with yourself and your loved ones. The balmy weather and beach lifestyle of the beautiful natural islands throughout the region rank as some of the most stunning landscapes in the Pacific. There are plenty of activities to keep you entertained, such as boat cruises, canoeing, white-water rafting, hiking, fishing, exploring the local villages or simply sunbaking by the pool – it’s up to you. Fiji is renowned for lush tropical rainforests and soft coral reefs, swimming and sunshine. What to take? Books, bikini, boardshorts and a big grin.
