Turtle Island Resort Turtle Island, Fiji
Lovers looking for the quintessential South Pacific getaway will treasure the romance, seclusion and personalized service of Fiji’s Turtle Island Resort. With no more than 14 couples in residence at any time, honeymooners feel as if they’re all alone on a private isle.
Just steps from the 14 thatched-roof guest cottages, or bures—complete with jetted spa tubs and double hammocks—beckons the famous Blue Lagoon and its powder-white sands. Couples can reserve their own private beach for an afternoon, savoring a lobster and champagne picnic while they bask in tropical sunshine. In the evening, they can indulge in a lantern-lit pontoon dinner as the sun sets across the lagoon.
A Bure Mama, or personal attendant, is on hand to satisfy every guest’s wish or whim. What’s more, the resort’s all-inclusive policy covers everything from the activities and food to fine wine and spirits, ensuring that couples can relax without a care in the world.
A beach wedding on Turtle Island is an intimate event. The bride arrives on a wedding raft, billi billi, to the trumpeting of conch shells and is escorted to her groom by two Fijian warriors. Following the ceremony, the bridal couple shares their wedding feast with all island guests.
