Fiji is the perfect destination to get away from it all. And the best part is that they’re open for tourism again as of 1st December 2021! And my favourite resort, the Fiji Shangri La is waiting with open arms to welcome back visitors.

With over 300 islands, pristine white sand beaches, and tropical warmth all year long, there are many things to love about this Pacific gem. The Fijian people are renowned for their gracious hospitality and genuine warmth. This will no doubt be the highlight of your stay. But where should you spend your time in this idyllic destination? Fiji Shangri La is THE place you want to spend your holiday time, and here are three reasons why.

1) Located on a private and exclusive island – You will feel like a VIP

The thing that sets Fiji Shangri La a cut above the rest is its unique location. 

Fiji Shangri La Resort and Spa is located on Yanuca Island, an exclusive and private sanctuary. The only sound you will hear at this resort is the palm trees swaying in the breeze. Look forward to the most incredible sunsets from your balcony, as you ponder what cocktail to order or what cuisine you should choose for dinner. Many previous guests of the Fiji Shangri La describe it as their ‘home away from home’ with their Fijian family.

2) Private white sandy beaches surround the resort

So many awesome water activities on offer at Fiji Shangri La.

The property location is on a pristine lagoon, surrounded by white sandy beaches. There are many activities such as snorkelling, fishing, diving and canoeing to be enjoyed from your resort.

And if all those water activities aren’t enough to keep you entertained, then the Fiji Shangri La offers direct access to a 9-hole golf course too. 

It’s worth noting that EVERY room at the Fiji Shangri La is guaranteed an ocean view and balcony.

3) Pamper yourself, eat well, and relax right here

Pamper yourself with relaxing treatments at the spa and wellness centre at the Fiji Shangri La. I’d recommend you treat yourself to a Fijian Bobo Massage. It’s a firm massage using a rich coconut oil blend to increase circulation, draw out toxins and reduce muscular aches and pains. Guaranteed you will like a new person after one of these.

I’d recommend the Fijian Bobo Massage. The therapists at Fiji Shangri La are wonderful.

And if you’re like me, having a good choice of restaurants is a huge bonus when you’re on vacation. The Fiji Shangri La has four restaurants on-site. Take your pick from Italian, Asian, and international cuisine to keep your tastebuds happy. Oh, and the buffet breakfast here is fabulous! It’s a reason alone to book your well-earned holiday at the Fiji Shangri La.
