Fiji Resorts Guide
There's an excellent choice of accommodation all around the Fiji Islands including large international brand hotels, exclusive private island resorts for couples, lively beach resorts for families and budget huts for backpackers. Most resorts in Fiji are located on a secluded beach front, sometimes on an uninhabited island making them ideal for honeymoons or a romantic break. For those that like to move around, or have the freedom to enjoy independent restaurants, staying on the main island is a better option - at most island resorts there are no restaurants outside of the hotel and no means of exploring on your own.
