Lo­cated just 20 min­utes by boat from the tip of Viti Levu, es­cape to Dol­phin Is­land bou­tique re­treat, nes­tled like a pre­cious jewel sur­rounded by crys­tal-clear waters. With trop­i­cal-mod­ern in­te­ri­ors by de­signer Vir­ginia Fisher, it of­fers a max­i­mum of just eight guests, across four bures, the ul­ti­mate pri­vate Pa­cific Is­land ex­pe­ri­ence, on an ex­clu­sive-use ba­sis.

Upon ar­rival, guests are im­me­di­ately en­veloped by the beauty and lux­u­ri­ous ac­com­mo­da­tion that awaits. The main

bure, with its fab­u­lous tra­di­tional palm-thatched roof and ar­chi­tec­turally de­tailed el­e­va­tion holds cen­tre court, with a pair of equally pic­turesque guest bure suites sit­ting to each side in per­fect har­mony.

The main bure is the hub for rest, re­lax­ation and fun with a se­ries of pool­side ar­eas per­fectly des­ig­nated for time spent ly­ing on day beds be­side the in­fin­ity pool, or for al fresco din­ing.

The guest bure suites are all equally se­duc­tive, stylish and serene. The high, palm-thatched bure roofs and wooden shut­ters are a nod to Pa­cific liv­ing. Well-ap­pointed bath­rooms with out­door show­ers, within pri­vate court­yards, com­ple­ment gen­er­ous dress­ing rooms. For to­tal ro­mance, guests can take an easy stroll to the top of the is­land where the hill­top sleep-out bure awaits – per­fect for a tryst or an overnight stay!

Is­land host, Dawn Simp­son, and her staff pro­vide the warm style of hos­pi­tal­ity that Fi­jian peo­ple are so well known for – look­ing af­ter guests as lit­tle or as much as they de­sire. Meals are de­li­cious and fea­ture fresh pro­duce, with many flavours and in­gre­di­ents unique to Fi­jian cui­sine, with freshly caught fish brought to the is­land daily. Trop­i­cal fruit abounds and the breeze car­ries the sweet trop­i­cal fra­grance of frangipani flow­ers.

The is­land of­fers an ar­ray of aquatic adventures, with warm, clear waters and coral reefs on the doorstep. Guests can snorkel, tank dive, swim and fish with care­fully se­lected lo­cals whose knowl­edge is in­valu­able. Cul­tural vis­its to nearby vil­lages and ar­eas of his­tor­i­cal in­ter­est can be ar­ranged, as well as mas­sages and fa­cials.

Dol­phin Is­land has de­lib­er­ately cre­ated a 'worlds apart' ex­pe­ri­ence for its guests, where each idyl­lic day blends seam­lessly into the next, against a back­drop of great beauty – en­hanced by in­cred­i­ble per­sonal ser­vice.
