Does Fiji can rhyme with family friendly? Of course! Why not?
Fiji knows hot to take care of each family member – from the adults to the very young ones. As you will see at these six gorgeous island resorts, parents can get plenty of relaxation time, while the kids experience adventures of a lifetime!
Malolo Island Resort
Kids will like: There’s nothing like finding exquisite coral and shells on the beach right by your family’s bure, just like the crab-finding and crab-racing will make your little ones overexcited. Teenagers will enjoy a lounge designed only for them.
Parents will like: The Island Hopping Tour to marvel at the islands in the Mamanuca archipelago, including the stunning Monuriki Island, which became famous as the location for Cast Away, starring Tom Hanks. If you are very lucky, you’ll have the place to yourself.
From 2,063 FJD for a family bure that can sleep up to 7 people
Kids will like: At the Kids Village, the little ones can get a taste of Fijian culture with coconut-tasting, sulu-decorating and grass-skirt-making, while at night there are beach bonfires and talent quests. And as always, snorkelling will keep your children amazed for hours.
From FJD $ 2,375 per night for 2 adults and 2 children aged 12 years and under (free for infants 3 and under)
Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort
Kids will like: The Bula Club for Kids is an innovative program of activities that includes a glass-bottom boat trip with the on-staff marine biologist to see a lot of marine life, as well as a visit to a local school, where young guests are matched with a child of the same age.
Parents will like: What’s not to like about a vacation in a stunning setting where your kids have a blast and you also get a quiet break? Book a couple’s massage at the resort’s spa, located at the gorgeous oceanfront bure, where you’ll only hear the relaxing waves crashing on the white sand beach.
From FJD$ 2,175 for a Gardenview Bure (adult double occupancy, up to 2 children age 12 & under sharing with parents are free)
Koro Sun Resort

Parents will like: Spend some quality time as a couple at the Rainforest Spa, which is set beside a rushing stream deep in the bush… the perfect setting to strengthen your loving bond.
From $672 FJD for a two-bedroom bure that can sleep up to 5 people
Toberua Island Resort
Kids will like: The young ones will enjoy the perfect setting to learn to snorkel, kayak or ride a stand-up paddleboard in the calm water, build sand castle on the beach and search for starfish in the shallow water. And everyone will enjoy visiting the talking Fijian red musk parrot that lives in the walk-in aviary at the centre of the island known as Bure 16.
Parents will like: The easy access to the resort (only a 30-minute boat ride and short taxi trip away) and the excellent staff, who quickly form a genuine bond with your children. While there’s no formal program for kids, the staff go out of their way to suggest activities and they’re on hand to provide help. There’s also a babysitting service for a fee.
From NZ$ 336 for a Tropical Oceanfront Bure (2 adults and 2 children under 16 years)
Kids will like: There are a lot of activities for kids. From snorkelling lessons in the pool, beach volleyball or a sandcastle-making competition, there are always paddleboards and windsurfers lined up along the beach, as well as tennis and table tennis facilities.
Parents will like: The adults-only pool, and its swim-up bar, will charm you. There’s also a special kids-only supervised dinner, and the kids’ club is open every night, leaving the adults free to enjoy dinner on their own if they wish.
