One of the destinations featured is Laucala, a private island resort in the north-east of Fiji. The spa features a spa garden where guests can learn about Fiji’s collection of tropical ﬂowers, herbs, spices and fruits, all of which are used in the spa products. Guests can also create their own essential oils in the resort’s distillery, using the flowers they have picked.
On the northern island of Vanua Levu is Namale, set on a volcanic cliff and featuring a hydrotherapy room as its focal point, with a Jacuzzi, four soaking tubs, a steam room and waterfall shower. The spa offers a range of western treatments as well as providing Shiatsu, Thai massage and local massage therapies.
Qamea Resort & Spa, on the island of Taveuni, houses the Jungle Spa. One of the highlights is the ‘Qamea Night of Decadence’, a private spa package for couples. Having been escorted from their bure (meaning bungalow) by Fijian warriors, couples are greeted at the spa with Champagne and, as well as a selection of treatments, each couple has private use of the spa and all its facilities for the evening.
Also in the outer islands is Yasawa Island Resort & Spa where treatments and techniques are sourced from around the world and adapted to local Fijian products and symbolism.
Other island spa resorts include Wakaya Beach Club which offers private spa packages and a full spa menu, including massages utilising a hybrid Shiatsu/Swedish technique;
Likuliku, which is home to the Tatadra Spa, meaning ‘House of Dreams’, where guests can opt for a Fijian-style massage or select a natural beauty and body treatment using local products; the Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa on Viti Levu - Fiji's main island - offers modern and traditional treatments which use indigenous plants and herbs, as well as a ‘Wai Water Zone’, offering gas, liquid and solid aquatherapy treatments, including Fiji’s first ice room; Westin Denerau Island Resort & Spa on Denerau Island, which houses Fiji’s largest spa; and the Hilton Fiji Resort & Spa, also on Denerau, which offers an extensive range of treatments.
