Fiji is the place for romance. Earlier this year, Australia’s sweetheart Miranda Kerr and Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel spent their honeymoon in the dreamy tropical paradise. We watched enviously as Sylvia Jefferies and Peter Stefanovic climbed aboard the island-romance bandwagon with their honeymoon spent at Kokomo Island Resort in Fiji.
Exclusively for Traveltalk, Tourism Fiji has put together this list of the top places to pop the question to your sweetheart in Fiji – the islands of love.
Tivua Island, Mamanuca Islands – Couples can enjoy a 90 minute cruise to the picturesque Tivua Island. Surrounded by pristine reef, the couple can stroll along the deserted beach to come across a “message in a bottle” lying by the water’s edge. While your love reads the message “Will you marry me?” you can get down on one knee and present the ring.
Captain Cook Cruises offers this package for $583 FJD ($378 AUD) per couple, including lunch and a bottle of sparkling wine in a private romantic bure. Price also includes the help of a Special Events Coordinator to make the day come together.
Treasure Island, Mamanuca Islands – Starting with a helicopter ride to Treasure Island your lover will be able to peer away the window to read “Will you marry me?” written on the beach in seashells. This incredible proposal is followed by a three course lunch, set in a private bure overlooking the Mamanuca Islands.
Events Fiji offers island proposals from $1,597 FJD ($995 AUD) per person, including the helicopter flights, the proposal set up, a three course A-La Carte lunch, sparkling wine, a romantic private bure setting, 15 minute legs and foot massage and activities such as snorkeling etc.
VOMO Private Island – This stunning 225 acre island resort can be exclusively booked for your intimate proposal. Management and event planners can help to create your unique proposal. The island offers plenty activities such as poolside and private resident cocktail parties, Rocks Beach dinners, degustation dinners, gourmet picnics, snorkeling, diving, fishing, Meke and kava ceremonies and plenty more.
LikuLiku Lagoon Resort, Mamanuca Islands – Heaven for couples, LikuLiku is an adults-only luxury resort with stunning authentic over-water bures. Couples can laze on their decks or in their separate bathing pavilion with Lagoon views from their grand bathtubs or gaze out at the living aquarium surrounding their bure. While the blissful bures would be the perfect setting for a proposal, LikuLiku can also help to set up something more extravagant, with a helicopter ride and the groom-to-be’s intentions spelled out in coconut husks on the sand.
Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, Savusavu – Jean-Michel Cousteau has unique and tailored proposal ideas to suit many different couples. With waterfall and rainforest walks, private Island tours at Naviavia, or simply a romantic candlelit dinner proposal on the beach, Jean-Michel Cousteau will help to create the perfect experience.
