  • Platinum Experiences

  • Points of Interest

Discover the appeal of island living as you partake in cultural activities, snorkel in turquoise waters, or simply sit back and relax in the warm sand and sun of Mana, Fiji. On day 2 of your trip, venture out on a sea cruise, snorkel the reefs and explore a traditional island village on one of your stops, where you’ll be welcomed ashore with a customary Kava ceremony.

During the rest of your island getaway, enjoy the plentiful complimentary activities available at your oceanfront hotel — do as much or as little as you want. Take a Fijian cooking class, play volleyball or “beach Olympics,” learn about coconuts or enjoy a bonfire. If relaxation is calling your name, spend your days relaxing on the hotel’s private beach, 2 freshwater pools or at the spa. If you want to venture off the hotel grounds, join a tour to the coral table and giant clam farms.

After dinner on your final night, make memories to last a lifetime when you experience a traditional Fijian meke (Polynesian dance) show.

What we love:
• Mana’s neighboring island, Monuriki was a major filming location for many of the scenes in the movie, “Cast Away.”
• The well-known scuba diving site, Big W, is on the edge of a barrier reef near the island of Malolo and features a wall that drops 1,500 feet to the ocean floor.
• As part of its commitment to sustainability, your resort features hydroponic and organic gardens with fruits and vegetables used at its on-site restaurants.

  • Destination
    Located in the South Pacific, Fiji is an archipelago of more than 330 tropical islands and 550 smaller islets, most of them uninhabitable. A terrain of lagoons, rain forests, mountains and beaches – along with a tropical climate – makes it the perfect setting for all types of land and sea activities. Traditional Fijian cuisine is heavily influenced by the sea, but tourists can also indulge in non-seafood items like coconuts, breadfruit and taros. Fiji’s capital, Suva, is a multicultural, modern city with museums, markets, shopping and restaurants.

    Mana Island, part of the Mamanuca chain of islands, is home to popular resorts that cater to all types of travelers seeking relaxation and recreation. The colorful coral reefs attract snorkelers and divers, rolling hillsides draw trekkers, and sprawling beaches are perfect for sunbathers.
