The Virtuoso Life

Just Back
FIJI
The classic South Pacific paradise found.
Fiji is a "postcard-perfect paradise," says
Toronto-based Virtuoso advisor Chris
Webster. But it's the people that you'll
remember long after you leave. "You feel so
welcome and comfortable, even at home in
Fiji," he says. Webster recently joined other
travel advisors and Tourism Fiji on a trip to
this tropical haven, composed of more than
300 islands.

GREAT HOTELS: We started at Jean-Michel
Cousteau Resort, on the island of Vanua
Levu. It's heaven for families with young kids.
After staying at the InterContinental Fiji Golf
Resort & Spa, we drove to Port Denarau, and
arrived at Vomo Island Fiji after a 75-minute

boat ride. The adults-only Rocks Bar is the
perfect place to catch the sunset.
I recommend Vomo Island and our next
stop, Royal Davui Island Resort, for
couples. At Royal Davui, I'll never forget
the creative Mojito Bomb dessert. It's a
smooth, pale green sphere resting on a
white spoon. When you eat it, it explodes
with a burst of mojito flavor.
From the Sun Coast, the northern coast
of Viti Levu, the group traveled to Dolphin
Island, a private island. Our "home-cooked"
meal by Mama Dawn, who was full of warmth
and personality, was unforgettable. If you

"Vomo Island's adults-only
Rocks Bar is the perfect
place to catch the sunset."
can afford it, Laucala Island, my last stop on
the trip, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE: While staying at Royal
Davui, we attended a local church service in
a coastal village. While most of the service
was conducted in Fijian, the pastor greeted
us in English and gave us a history of their
village. The hymns were so beautiful.

SUBMARINE RIDE: At Laucala Island, you can
"take flight" in an ultramodern submarine
(it's complimentary) that whisks you past
stunning coral reefs and marine life. It's
fully pressurized, and you just sit back and
enjoy a one-of-a-kind view, with an expert
pilot in the cockpit.

PANORAMIC VIEWS: Climb Mount Vomo on Vomo
Island to catch the sunrise. It's a treat to
start your day with 360-degree views of the
glittering South Pacific and surrounding
islands. The 30-minute climb is easy, with
clearly marked paths to the summit.
SOUVENIR: Hand-carved kava bowls are beautiful, and come in many shapes, sizes, and
colors - kava optional.

PRACTICAL TIPS: A trip to Fiji may involve flights,
Laucala Island and (above)
Royal Davui Island Resort's
Sunset Lounge.

cars, and boat transfers. It might seem like
a lot to arrange, and it pays to work with an
advisor, who can make sure connections
are seamless.
