It’s a fact that Fiji is still a honeymooners’ paradise with masses of resorts and never-ending expeditions to cherish those moments.

So what makes Fiji so different? Some resorts will give you and your loved one absolute privacy like having your own private beach.

Others seek something different

Swish couple Robert Birchmeier and Karin Elda Birchmeier were in the country for their extended honeymoon.

It was the diving experience which they were after. Before setting foot in Fiji, they had visited New Zealand and the Cook Islands.

For seven days, the couple lived it up on board Blue Lagoon Cruises’ Fiji Princess.

South Seas Cruises sales and media executive Sanjeshni Nand said most passengers aboard the Fiji Princess cruise ship are couples celebrating their honeymoon.

“The Fiji Princess is enjoying renewed interest for small-ship ‘coastal cruising’ following her extensive $1.2 million makeover.”

Tourism Fiji global public relations manager, Patricia Mallam said Fiji had carved its niche market as a premium honeymoon destination.

“Tourism Fiji is engaged with maximising the potential of this niche by strategic marketing,” she said.

Visitor arrivals

Fiji Bureau of Statistics provisional visitor arrivals figures released on December 14 for the period January to November 2015 sits at 688,884, an increase of 8.8 per cent compared to the same period last year.

“We are confident that the visitor arrivals target for 2015 of 714,000 established by Tourism Fiji will be surpassed by 31 December 2015.”

Ms Mallam said this was  attested to with five Fijian properties being listed in the top 10 honeymoon destinations in the South Pacific as independently selected by Brides Magazine (a major American media specifically catering for needs of brides to be and newlyweds).

The five properties are: Likuliku Lagoon Resort, Tokoriki Island Resort, Qamea Island Resort, Navutu Stars Island Resort, and Royal Davui Island Resort.
