If ever there was a cozy spot for newly-weds, hid­den from watch­ful eyes and al­lowed them to in­dulge in care­free in­do­lence, it would def­i­nitely be the Royal Davui Is­land Re­sort, Fiji

What could be more ex­clu­sive than be­ing tucked away on its own, se­cluded is­land? Very few places, cer­tainly, and one of them is this lux­u­ri­ous, all-in­clu­sive re­sort, Royal Davui Is­land Re­sort that is a 30-minute speed­boat ride from Pa­cific Har­bour in Fiji.

Sur­rounded by dive sites, the Royal Davui Is­land Re­sort is an ex­clu­sive adults-only sanc­tu­ary sit­u­ated in Fiji's Beqa La­goon. It of­fers honey­moon­ers and cou­ple a level of Fi­jian lux­ury, el­e­gance and pri­vacy not found in most large re­sorts. This one can ac­com­mo­date only a few guests at a time en­sur­ing com­plete pri­vacy and free­dom to be se­cluded in one's own trop­i­cal oa­sis. This bou­tique lux­ury is­land re­sort has 16 vil­las spread across 10 acres of trop­i­cal land­scape with pri­vate plunge pools in each of the vil­las. Wish­ing to keep the is­land as nat­u­ral as pos­si­ble, the own­ers de­signed the vil­las, build­ings and ameni­ties to blend into and around ex­ist­ing veg­e­ta­tion and an­cient trees. The reef sur­round­ing the is­land has been de­clared sa­cred and no fish­ing is al­lowed within a mile of the is­land, cre­at­ing a stun­ning ma­rine re­serve with count­less species of fish, clams and coral for guests to en­joy.

Cou­ples can in­dulge in spa treat­ments here de­signed by Pure Fiji, Champagne break­fast on a de­serted sand­bar, or in the simple plea­sures of do­ing noth­ing on a pri­vate beach. Royal Davui's re­sort ac­tiv­i­ties pro­vide mul­ti­ple ways to en­joy the la­goon.

With the re­sort's is­land cata­ma­rans, pad­dle boards or sea kayaks cou­ples can snorkel to ex­plore the fring­ing coral reefs. For the more ac­tive guests, the wa­ters near the re­sort of­fer deep-sea fish­ing and some of the Pa­cific's most spec­tac­u­lar dive sites.


Each villa (or vale (vah-le) the Fi­jian word for home) has been su­perbly ap­pointed with stylish modern fea­tures while main­tain­ing the Fi­jian tra­di­tion of thatched roofs and wooden con­struc­tion. Each stun­ning vale fea­tures its own heated pri­vate plunge pool, spa bath, sep­a­rate lounge room, sun deck and wet bar. With su­perb views out over the sur­round­ing reefs and neigh­bour­ing is­lands, guests can watch dol­phins and tur­tles mov­ing through the la­goon, fol­low the wind path of a frigate bird, or just wal­low in the bare­foot Fiji lux­ury from their vale's pri­vate plunge pool.

With prox­im­ity to Pa­cific Har­bor (Fiji's soft ad­ven­ture cap­i­tal) Royal Davui of­fers a wide range of ex­cur­sions to keep guests busy. In or­der to share their unique cul­ture with the world, a num­ber of ex­cur­sions fo­cused on the lo­cal Fi­jian cul­ture are also avail­able here. Bula Vi­naka!
