How to have the most romantic Fiji-getaway

Planning a holiday with your significant other is exciting. It all builds up to the big moment when you're heading to the airport to celebrate quality time together. 

Of course, an all-inclusive luxury resort in Fiji encapsulates the epitome of romance for such a vacation. And at the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, we have made it our mission to make your lovers' holiday to Fiji an unforgettable experience. 

Alongside the natural beauty of pristine beaches and aquamarine water, we can help you and your other half have the most memorable time.

Go on an adventure

What is better than relaxing with the sunshine of your life by the poolside? How about a day spent on a private island – just the two of you. 

The ultimate secluded paradise, Naviavia lets you enjoy each other's company in complete calm. Smooth waves on the beach will perfectly complement the picnic we can arrange for the two of you before your little trip. 

For a half-day to an entire day, you get to relax and sip champagne by the shore.  Let your imagination be the limit of the adventures you can have. 

Get flexible together

Doing yoga in Fiji though takes things to an entirely new level.

Practising yoga regularly has many health benefits. It can reduce back pain, arthritis, headaches and even lower blood pressure. More than that though, it is a fantastic way to improve your mood and energy levels. 

Doing yoga in Fiji takes things to an entirely new level. The restorative and serene experience of moving your body within eye sight of the tranquil Savusavu Bay can do wonders – for more than just your mental wellbeing. 

To make your couple holiday even more enjoyable, share the experience of serenity with your partner in one of the complimentary morning group sessions. Don't want to have anyone but your lover and a professional instructor in the room? No problem! At the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort we have fully trained experts offering private sessions

We can guarantee that the romantic fire between the two of you will burn in a novel way after getting flexible together. After all, yoga is good for both mental and physical experiences. 

Happy 4th July to our American friends across the water #Fiji #jmcfijiresort #tourismfiji #virtuoso #july4th #independanceday

Dine under the stars together

The way to the heart is often through food. Or so people say. Far away from your daily lives, indulging your taste buds with delicious cuisine is a treat in itself. Dress up in the evening to enjoy a few cocktails at the Lounge Bar. You may even decide to play an exciting game and pretend you are meeting for the first time again – one of you could be a mysterious spy who swoops the other off their feet. 

By the time you are ready to feast, both of you will be filled with excited anticipation for the grand event: a private dining experience by the beach. 

Savour the moments together with a dinner under the stars, right on the waterfront of Savusavu Bay. Perched on the pier or even directly on the beach, you and your partner have the night to yourself. One of our dedicated staff will serve only the two of you, ensuring no one disturbs your special dinner.

At the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort we pride ourselves with the knowledge that our guests can experience the most romantic holiday with us. Every aspect of the romantic island getaway is thought of and provided for by our team, ensuring that you have the vacation of your dreams. 

Whether you want to surprise your significant other with the trip of a lifetime, or are planning the ultimate getaway together, we'd love to be a part of it. Because life deserves to be filled with luxury, romance and relaxation. 

3 Fijian day excursions you and your partner will love

Planning a romantic Fiji getaway? Then you will be delighted to know that a holiday at the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort offers more than simply luxury accommodation. 

As a 5-star resort, we pride ourselves with having immaculate amenities, servicing your every need. From private beach-side dinners to relaxing days spent at the spa – there are endless opportunities for you and your partner to indulge the senses.

But what if you feel like being adventurous together and want to go explore the surroundings of the resort? We offer a range of complimentary off-site excursions on set days each week. 

Let us introduce three of these to give you an idea what you can expect: 

Go on an adventure in Fiji's rainforest. Go on an adventure in Fiji's rainforest.

1. Explore the local rainforest 

When you think of a romantic Fiji holiday, hammocks, sandy beaches and a soft ocean breeze are likely to come to mind. However, the South Pacific has much more to offer than just beach side relaxation. 

Join us for a hike through the stunning rainforest and dip your toes (or full body) into a refreshing jungle pool as you discover a hidden waterfall. 

Besides the obvious beauty of your surroundings, you and your other half get to marvel at some of the thousands of plant species that call Fiji home. You might even get a glimpse of one of Fiji's native species! From the dendrobium dectylodes – a little-known orchid – to the balaka macrocarpa – a flowering plant only found here – your day trip will give you an insight into the colourful world of South Pacific rainforests. 

2. Visiting a traditional village

Fiji is renowned for its friendly, relaxed people. As such, we invite you to experience their famous hospitality during an afternoon in the local village Nukubalavu. Exploring the traditions and customs of the locals, we guarantee you'll feel closer as a couple afterwards! 

To ensure you have the best time possible, visit the village in modest clothing and take off your hat – wearing one could be considered an insult to the chief. Then, if you're lucky enough to be invited into a home, thank your host and leave your shoes at the door before entering. 

Want to impress others with your language skills? Then you'll want to remember how to say hello (ni si bula), thank you (vinaka) and goodbye (sa moce) in Fijian. 

Learning about new cultures and customs can bring you and your partner closer together as well. The two of you will have a new-found appreciation for each other and be able to share the memories of your travel time for years to come. 

3. Farmers market 

If you enjoy indulging your taste buds in different culinary dishes, then the complimentary excursion to Savusavu's farmers market on Saturday morning is for you! 

Immerse yourselves in the busy and colourful atmosphere of Fiji's traditional shopping day and explore the many different local products. From fruit and seafood to handcrafts and jewellery, your lover and you will be exhilarated by the diverse offering. 

Since the Fijian cuisine is heavily based on cooking with sweet potatoes, coconut and fish, there is a plethora of delicious treats you won't see anywhere else on offer. Influenced by the migration of Indians to Fiji in the 1870s, local cooking is now a colourful mix of Indian spices and traditional island foods. 

Want to add a playful element to your trip? Why not pick something you have never eaten before and share the new taste experience as a couple! 

Inevitably, it doesn't matter whether you and your partner have been dating for a year or have been married for 10. Flying away on a romantic holiday can bring out the butterflies of your early relationship, making even a short vacation one to remember and cherish.
