Our Little Fijian Getaway

Tokoriki Island Resort
As some of you may or may not know, as mentioned in my previous post, I just got back from our amazing holiday in Fiji. It has been the perfect opportunity for both of us to completely wind down and prepare ourselves for some busy months ahead of us. I took some snaps to share with you guys. I apologise in advance if some of the photos don’t look that great quality wise, it’s because I did not want the hassle of carrying my DSLR camera around so I used my iPhone instead. The views make up for it! I hope you guys like it.

My favourite thing to do while I was on holiday would be watching the sunset. I am aware that I have quite a few sunset photos in this post but it’s because I couldn’t resist adding them in because I think they look gorgeous. It was that time of the day when it was so peaceful and relaxing and you sit there and watch the sun go down while you listen to the waves gently lap at the shore.
We stayed at a few different hotels and we tried to make the most of it by spreading out our destinations. So we stayed one night in Nadi, two nights at Denarau Island, two nights at the Coral Coast and two nights in Tokoriki Island which is in the Mamanuca.
Out of all the hotels we stayed at, my favourite would have to be Tokoriki Island Resort. It is a bit pricey but it’s all worth it. This is the boyfriend’s first overseas holiday, so we were quite happy to spend that little bit extra.
This is our bure, where we spent our amazing two nights. It’s literally ten steps from the beach, it’s got an outdoor, as well as an indoor shower, your own hammock, amazingly comfortable bed and the rooms are equipped with air-condition as well as ceiling fans.
We indulged in a hotel complimentary kava ceremony. The guy pictured above preparing the kava is Mosese and the guy doing the introduction is Joshua. Both very friendly hotel staff. All the staff in the hotel address you on a first name basis.
I love how Fijians incorporate their culture into everything. Majority of the locals can speak very good english, so if you’re thinking of going and are worried about the language barrier, don’t be!
Fiji is such a beautiful country, it’s truly a slice of paradise on the pacific. I admire the locals’ warm hospitality and friendliness. The views are just the icing on the cake!
