It was one of the most extraordinary pandemic gambles – when Fiji announced it was opening up, little did our Pacific neighbour realise we were on the verge of Omicron.
But it has certainly paid off. Hotels are filling up fast, even the most expensive and glitzy resorts. And Fiji has a few of them.
For nearly two years, a small island nation has been languishing, with 40 per cent of its income from tourism gone and hotel staff back in their villages.
Today, many Australians are already enjoying the “Bula” welcome and an island holiday free of the crowds but with all the good service, great food and amazing scenery.
At Explore, we’ve brought you some amazing offers that make Fiji a natural choice.
You’ll be able to swim in crystal clear lagoons off private beaches . And you’ll be staying in a top class hotel. Then you will be wafted onto an amazing cruise of the islands.
The Sofitel has innovative decor inspired by the local culture plus an abundance of resort facilities such as the adult-only sanctuary at Waitui Beach Club, complete with an infinity pool, luxury cabanas and a bar and restaurant. In the evenings, enjoy dinner at the interactive restaurant buffet which features 6x live kitchens offering worldwide cuisine including Fijian, Indian, American and so much more!
On the third day of your holiday, you’ll be transferred to the M.V. Fiji Princess with Blue Lagoon Cruises for your island cruising adventure.
You’ll dine al fresco, relax in the onboard Spa. You’ll visit Modriki Island, which is where the movie Cast Away was filmed, be a part of a traditional kava ceremony and learn to cook traditional Fijian dishes.
