Well I’m starting to feel a little restless. Lately I’ve been researching short breaks to Fiji. Fiji holds a special place in my heart as we honeymooned there years ago at the beautiful Royal Davui Resort. It’s a very tempting destination for us – it’s only a 5 hour flight and resorts often have amazing deals going. There are so many great resorts and I can’t decide where to go so I thought I’d ask for recommendations from some lovely girlfriends of mine who’ve been to Fiji with kids. Here’s what they had to say:

Resort Name: Vomo Island Resort
Kids rating (out of 5, 5 being the highest) : 5
Parents rating (out of 5, 5 being the highest) : 4
Kids club? Yes, but kids under 4 need to be accompanied by an adult. We used a nanny which was very cheap and she was lovely. Fijians adore kids and they were so good with our son.
Best bits: cocktails at the sunset bar, crab races, fish feeding. We also had a couple of romantic dinners on the beach with our son looked after.
Could improve on: the pool was very warm (almost too hot to swim on some days) and a little small for the amount of people at the resort.
Accommodation type (2 bedroom, family room, suite etc): we had a beach villa which had views of the ocean. The beach was right off our back deck. It was a one bedroom so we had the baby in a portacot in the room with us.
Other comments: the food was fantastic and it was a nice relaxing family holiday

Resort Name: I stayed at ‘The Westin” it’s linked to the Sheraton / Sheraton villas – you can use all hotels restaurants/ pools facilities and charge to your room.
Kids rating (out of 5, 5 being the highest) : 5
Parents rating (out of 5, 5 being the highest) : 5
Kids club? you can put kids in kids club at Sheraton . Kids under 4 need a nanny to take to kids club. I paid 20fiji dollars for 3 hours ( for nanny) you get same nanny everyday
Best bits: It’s great for adults and families. Food and alcohol cheaper at westin compared to Sheraton. Kids love bula bus ( number 4 goes free between these resorts) number 6 takes you to marina ..staff are warm and friendly can’t do enough for you.
Could improve on: N/A
Accommodation type (2 bedroom, family room, suite etc): We had 2 doubles in our room and a fold away couch. Tea/coffee facilities in room
Other comments: Loved it so much my mum is heading back there on 23 jan … Great for weddings/ functions and fire show.
