  Top 10 Best Fiji Family Resorts

Our fortunate proximity to the Fijian Islands means that many Australian families have experienced for themselves the tropical wonderland and endlessly generous hospitality they are renowned for. In this edition of the Five Star Kids Awards, however, we’re introducing you to a selection of resorts that surpass the expectations of the most discerning five star families, and enter the realm of the ultra-luxurious.

Each of these resorts has distinguished itself on a number of criteria:


Accommodation and services tailored to children of all ages


Exceeding family expectations


The resort’s facilities


The standard of accommodation


The resort’s ambience

From private runways to private beach picnics, the following destinations will shed a new perspective on a collection of islands many travellers hold near and dear. These luxury Fijian resorts take ‘beach view’ to another level, pleasing their smallest guests with endless adventure and indulgence.



If it is total, uncompromising luxury that you seek, Laucala cannot be faulted. For the most discerning of five star families, endless thoughtful touches characterise your stay on this 12km island off the north-eastern coast of Taveuni. While parents will find themselves perpetually in awe of each and every accommodation option, from palatial villas perched on clifftops to lagoon-side bungalows, little voyagers will delight as they sit atop horses wading through the shallows before they venture deeper by taking part in one of the island’s many water sports.

Yasawa Island

At times, families will feel as though they are the only inhabitants of remote Yasawa Island, and at others, completely connected with local traditions. Whichever you prefer, this resort delivers, and in style. Perhaps the first day will consist of a private beach picnic with paddleboarding, while the second might see little ones enjoying a local game of rugby. In any case, the Two Bedroom Bure, one of only 18 villas, is the perfect place to begin each day.


Vomo takes the business of catering for young travellers seriously, so seriously that its kids’ club is, in fact, a village! Vomo Kids’ Village encapsulates the resort’s ethos–to provide an unforgettable Fijian experience for every traveller–and features a media room, cubby house and undercover play areas. All the while, the pure sand of the shores spill into the garden of the Royal Villa, a three-bedroom oasis where parents settle into the luxury that surrounds them.

Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa

Experience the cultural diversity that is Denarau Island during your stay at Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa. Junior Suites designed for families are the perfect base from which to explore wonders including Hindu temples and local village amusement parks. Meanwhile, the resort’s many dining and wellbeing venues provide creature comforts to parents who can luxuriate in the spectacular surrounds of Fiji while keeping a watchful eye on their little mermen and mermaids in the outdoor pool.

Turtle Island

Typically a couples-only resort, Turtle has introduced Family Time periods throughout the year where all ages gather to become part of what has been dubbed the Turtle Family. Together, children, parents and grandparents experience the island’s joys from horse-riding to scuba diving. For the utmost in luxury, reserve the 202ha island exclusively for your family, and create your most cherished memories.

Sheraton Fiji Resort

A resort that is simultaneously a tropical oasis and the gateway to many more, Sheraton Fiji Resort is ideal for families with an appetite for exploring. Located on Denarau Island, the resort becomes a portal to the islands accessible from Denarau Marina, while the integrated complex offers admission to The Westin Denarau Resort & Spa and Denarau Golf & Racquet Club. Families looking to spread out should make a beeline to Sheraton Denarau Villas, with spacious accommodation for all tastes.

Hilton Fiji Beach Resort & Spa

This resort aims to provide families with the most uncomplicated of processes upon arrival, a blessing for parents. Thoughtful touches such as accessibility to the Karoni Pad - a space designed to make the time between arriving and checking in more comfortable - is one such feature. Its Five Bedroom Villa is the ultimate accommodation for up to 12 people, equipped with modern amenities like a Bose sound system and iPod docking station access, buried treasure.

Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort

There is undoubtedly no more educationally and ecologically minded resort in Fiji than Jean-Michel Cousteau. With a philosophy centred on sustainability, the former coconut plantation is a place where exploration and learning are undertaken hand in hand. Pearl farm tours, mangrove adventures and excursions to the village of Nukubalavu will entertain children endlessly, while parents will feel similarly inspired. A new experience, different in every way to the last, follows every sunrise at this divine sanctuary.


For a getaway that invigorates the senses look no further than Pacific Harbour. Nanuku is truly a child's playground, ideal for families who prefer their holidays more lively than languid. The resort's private yet accessible location provides ample opportunity to experience ziplining, hikes to the Waisese waterfall with a local medicine man or the Terratrek - a self-guided driving tour through the mountains. The resort's Club House is an attraction in itself, featuring a guest library and the Cakava Creative Workshop, where, following a day of discovery, families can ease their way into another spectacular Fijian night.

InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa

With signature InterContinental style, the Fiji Golf Resort & Spa, nestled in a reef-protected lagoon, delivers the level of service that five star families have come to appreciate and expect. Perched on a hilltop, the exclusive Club InterContinental Natadola Suite provides families with residential-like living, complete with personal chef and private pool. Private as the suite may be, families are not secluded from sharing in a range of resort activities if they choose, with glass-bottom boat safaris and surfing lessons a firm favourite among kids
