Viti Levu, Fiji
InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa
What it is
A verdant 35 acre respite on a pristine beach with three swimming pools, five craveable restaurants and bars, an 18-hole championship golf course and activities galore.
What it isn't
Just for honeymooners. Kiddos are pampered here, too, thanks to the Planet Trekkers Kids Club (for 4-12 year olds), where they can indulge in scavenger hunts, Fijian weaving classes, coconut sailboat making, crab races and more.
What we think
The paradisiacal picture you have of Fiji in your mind is real at InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa, where all 266 rooms and 50 suites are designed in true island style—with airy interiors, deep egg-shaped soaking tubs, locally inspired furnishings (such as woven rattan seating) and lush garden, lagoon or show-stopping ocean views. We love the 678 square foot Beachfront View Room for its many perks, including a private terrace and spa-like bathroom, as well as the ginormous Beachfront View Suites with separate living spaces in their 915 square foot layouts overlooking the lapping waters of Natadola Bay. Either way, you’ll find amenities like robes and slippers, turndown service, air conditioning (hallelujah!) and even a pillow menu to ensure a blissed out night’s sleep.
You're here because
The spa has everything you can think of, including breezy al fresco treatment cabanas, a hydrotherapy program complete with a rainshower and ice shower, as well as locally inspired treatments such as tropical hydrating facials and Fijan coconut oil massages.
You love little more than an authentically local dinner menu, and at Navo, where the lobsters come from the Yasawa islands and vegetables from the Sigatoka Valley, everything is as fresh as the frothy sea beyond your table. Tonight’s most unforgettable dish? The mud crab and clam linguine with dashi butter, tossed sesame and pea sprouts. A.k.a. Fiji on a plate.
