From lush surroundings to eco-friendly amenities, read on to see why this adult-only Fiji resort soars above the others…
From the minute you step onto this glorious island located off the southwestern coast of Viti Levu in Fiji, you will immediately be captivated by its sights and sounds. Although there are many reasons to put Royal Davui on your “must visit” list, here are our favorite five:
This eco Fiji resort is dedicated to responsible luxury emphasizing and preserving the stunning simplicity and beauty of its natural habitat. In fact, each vale (pronounced va-lay) was built on sites that did not require any old-growth trees to be removed. Each secluded 905- to 1,200-square-foot vale is nestled in jungle foliage, atop a living barrier reef, coral gardens, sapphire blue seas, white sand beaches and towering palms. All feature mahogany floors, natural woods, thatched roofs, seagrass ceilings and panoramic South Pacific views. Even our spa focuses on using local and sustainable products.
With its intricate coral reef, Beqa Lagoon is famed for having some of the world’s most fascinating scuba dive sites and vibrant marine life – all within 30 minutes of the resort. Other onsite activities include catamarans, paddleboards, sea kayaks, swimming, sailing, water skiing, hiking, snorkelling, deep-sea fishing and shark feeding dives. Royal Davui is in close proximity to Pacific Harbor – Fiji’s soft adventure capital – offering white water rafting and surfing too.
While it’s remote, Royal Davui is also remarkably easy to reach. Fiji is one of – if not the – most accessible South Pacific destination with flights from Australia and North America, New Zealand and Asia. Once you’ve touched down, the next leg of your adventure is by helicopter, plane or boat. Then, a shuttle boat across the lagoon. Now you’ve arrived at this spectacular Fiji resort!
The Fijian name for the island is Ugaga (ung-nga-nga) and it has a rich and intriguing history. Gifted to the Nunivalu (tribal leader) of Serua around 1830, it was payment for defending Naceva Village against attacks from neighbouring Rukua Village. Royal Davui offers many activities and events that focus on this ancient culture, including cooking and coconut demonstrations, village visits, village church services, kava ceremonies, Fijian Meke nights, local string bands and shopping at local markets.
We take dining very seriously at this Fiji resort. Where to eat options include your vale’s private deck, under a magnificent 150-year-old Banyan tree or – and the most unique location of all – is on Sand Cay, a tidal islet accessible only by boat. And what you’ll be dining on is as important as where. Our team of talented chefs create new menus daily using only seasonal, local ingredients. Of course, seafood plays an integral role in the Fijian diet, so menus showcase the best catches of the day.
