OMG, Fuji, sounds amazing!  Would love to see some pictures.  I think seeing some pictures will be the closest thing I will ever get to going to Fuji.  LOL

Fiji/Tahiti is my dream vacation! Darling Husband has promised me we’ll go for a big anniversary. Thanks for the recommendation!

Fiji is great but a little unstable politically (I’m from New Zealand) – every so often it can get a little hairy – but when it is good it is really good.

Another option is Vanuatu, stunning like Fiji but a lot more ‘un touched’ (but still resorts, honeymooners locations etc) – have been there twice. Same story as Fiji though, you want to stay on the outer islands with any Pacific Island destination. Samoa (not American Samoa) is also really popular with Australian/NZ honeymooners, less comercial than Tahiti and Fiji too.

Hope that helps 🙂

I just got back from Fiji – we went over there for a wedding. The wedding was at the Westin on Denarau… and it was absolutely beautiful. She got married overlooking the ocean, and then had an open air reception with an awesome band.

We enjoyed the resort, although we got a bit bored with the food as it was quite plain and boring!

After that we went to Castaway Island, which while beautiful I definately would not recommend for a honeymoon. If you are thinking of having a honeymoon – or trip there – make sure you pick an island that is kid free!

The kids on our island were really well behaved, but everything on the island was built around the kids. So want a relaxing float in the pool? not going to happen as the kids are jumping and splashing next to you. The lunch buffet is hamburgers and chips, all kid friendly, and the whole resort was in bed by 9.30 at night and up again early! For us, it just wasnt that fun. We got a bit bored because it rained a few days and we were stuck inside with no tv, and only a game of monopoly to occupy us.

Just pick an island that has lots of free activities, is kid free and has some night time activities and I am sure you will love it because we enjoyed it – just could have been better!

As an Australian, I could suggest Port Douglas 🙂 It is beautiful, has the great barrier reef and lots more going on.

Hi all!!

We would love to go to Fiji for our honeymoon, but there are so many islands and resorts that is hard to know where to start!! Did anyone do packages that you can find online that include airfare?? I’m not sure if I should book through a travel agent or just do it ourselves? Any suggestions on where to stay would be amazing and much appreciated!!
