From the Intercontinental resort, we traveled along the Coral Coast to Beqa Bay and the Royal Davui Resort. The drive was incredibly beautiful, with vibrant green hills, small villages and gorgeous views of the turquoise ocean along the way. It is quite a long drive, and many of our clients prefer to take a sea plane, prop plane or helicopter and arrive more quickly. For those with the time to enjoy it, it’s worth the drive.
We were transferred by boat to Royal Davui. The island is a marine sanctuary with excellent snorkeling right off the pier, with diving close by. With just 16 private villas, all with plunge pools overlooking the crystal clear lagoon, it’s hard to leave your room. There are many places to explore on this 10 acre island - where you feel like you’re the only couple there.
There are numerous complimentary activities to enjoy including snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and Hobie cat sailing, to name a few. Each afternoon the staff has a volleyball game, inviting guests to join in. It was US versus Fiji, and I have to say we have some good players on the US team! I was happy to sip a Pinã Colada and be the cheer leader!
Royal Davui is an adult’s only island, perfect for honeymoons, special anniversaries and romantic getaways. All meals are included and the menu is created daily using the freshest ingredients. The bar and restaurant are shaded under a beautiful Banyan tree, and the nightly music is intoxicating. The staff is so friendly, and will go over and above to make your stay unforgettable.
While staying at Royal Davui Resort, some of our bridal team members had the privilege of visiting a Fijian village. A short boat ride brought us to the beautiful Island of Beqa where we were greeted by locals selling some of their treasures.
There are many villages on the Islands of Fiji. Beqa is a larger one, some are much smaller, and each has a chief. We were invited into the chief’s home, and signed the book asking permission to visit. It was very symbolic.
We were taken to the school where children performed for us with song and a few skits. They were so happy to see us, and very polite. Greeting each and every one of us by name, and a big BULA!
The Fijian people are so friendly and welcoming. The experience was unforgettable. (continued)
