Fijian Bliss!

As i have mentioned only a few hundred times before our Fijian holiday was perfect! Total tropical paradise & not a cyclone in sight! Although sadly after almost 2 weeks back home its starting to feel like it was a long time ago!
Here are some of our piccies!

Headphones in my favorite colour!
How thoughtful of you V Australia!

First cocktail of the trip at the Westin for one night before heading out to the islands

Gorgeous walkway along the seawall infront of our room

Late afternoon light over the pool


I took this out of our kayak on our daily circumnavigation of the island - only took 15 mins in a kayak to go right around!

Our beachfront bure had a little wooden sign with our names on the door - cute!

Inside our spacious home for the week!
Almost the same size as our apartment back home ;)
The ceiling was made from hand painted tapa cloth. There are 20 beachfront bures like this & 13 garden rooms so only about 60 people there at any one time & no kids under 16!

The veiw from our balcony down to our own beach chairs & hut!
One step into the water & there was amazing coral & colourful fish!

Ben popping the champagne for our 6 year anniversary the day we arrived

Sunrise walk

No one on the private side beach except for us!

Having a swim out the front of our bure

The veiw from our breakfast table every morning

A fijian specialty, raw fish marinated in coconut milk, chilli & lime juice


Sunset champagne at the top of the island

and look what we saw down below us!
We think he was about 7 foot!
AND we had been snorkelling right here earlier in the day!

Went sport fishing - was awesome!!
Look what i caught - 2 big spanish mackeral

Go team! We got 8 spansih mackeral & a tuna (that im holding!) We took the tuna & a mackeral & gave the rest to the boat captain for his family.

The boys were pretty impressed with themselves as we strolled back up the beach through the pool area to drop them off at the kitchen to be cooked for our lunch & dinner! After we came back everyone who'd been sitting around the pool went & booked to go fishing the next day ;)

Our little afternoon beach bar infront of our bure

Veiw from my pool lounge over the reef


Bye Bye paradise (but only 3.5hrs away so i think we'll be back!)
If you want to see for yourself check it out
 The only thing that id say wasnt amaaaazing was the food, pretty basic, you cant expect 5 star when they only get deliveries once a week & hey i was mostly there for the sun & the water ...and the cocktails ;)


  1. THAT must have been hard to take - and I'm terribly impressed with the fish! Great holiday, relaxing just to look at your pics!

  2. What a wonderful celebration for your anniversary! Enjoy a lovely weekend, Kellie xx

  3. What a fantatic holiday! It was torture looking at your goegeous photos as the rain pelts on the windows in cold, dull, Melbourne. Oh Fiji! What I'd give to be there! Bula!
