But the scenery isn’t the only reason to visit; Fiji also offers a warm culture that welcomes visitors with generous hospitality.

“Likuliku” means “calm waters,” and that’s what you’ll find at the idyllic adults-only Fiji resort Likuliku Lagoon Resort, nestled along a turquoise lagoon surrounded by a protected marine sanctuary with a fringed coral reef. This peaceful paradise is designed in the traditional style with respect for the land and the cultural heritage of Fiji. On Friday nights the resort holds a traditional dance and feast.

Stay in one of the ten overwater bungalows that are perfect for a private honeymoon retreat (called “bures” here, these were Fiji’s first). They have private decks with loungers and ladders to the sea. Swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters and explore the incredible coral reef surrounding the lagoon; the resort offers complimentary watersports equipment.

Likuliku has several all-inclusive packages for honeymooners, including the Celebration Package for 5 nights or more which covers accommodations, fresh local cuisine, non-motorized watersports, a bottle of sparkling wine, a couples massage, and guided nature activities.

What people say about us

We worked with Mike to plan our perfect honeymoon in Greece — he was amazing the whole way through and put together a trip we will cherish for our lifetime.

He was thoughtful with our suggestions, and provided some of his own without every pushing us. He stayed within our budgetary means but made it feel like we had a budget twice the size.

Dan and Michelle were such a joy to work with! They really made our trip and cruise successful. Based on our needs they were able to help us identify and schedule what side trips and activities would best suit our interests.

After this trip I will be using a travel agent for future vacations…just can’t wait for the next one they help us plan!

Honeymoon Always has been fantastic- our trips were 1000% better because of their help. The first time we used them we wanted to have a fun trip with some cultural experiences, good food, not too packed, and for a good price. It was fantastic and now we've used them for several trips in Europe, Central America, and the Caribbean. Each trip was so different but they were able to make each one special and unique to our needs.
