Fodor's Expert Review Turtle Island Resort

Turtle Island, Western, Fiji Fodor's Choice

Privacy, pampering, and incredible attention to personal details make this the ultimate Fiji beach getaway, where everything from scuba diving to champagne-and-lobster picnics on reserved beaches is covered in the all-inclusive price. Just take a look at the country's original ultraluxury resort by the numbers: 100 staff for a maximum of 14 couples, 14 beaches, 1,000-square-foot "bure" cottages, and 1 personal assistant "Bure Mama" per couple, who tends to all scheduling needs and takes photos, with guests' permission, to craft a photo album for them to take home. The expansive bure feature 21-foot high ceilings, dual showerheads, floor-to-ceiling windows, four-poster king-size beds and private verandas with daybed and fish ponds leading out to the famed Blue Lagoon. Grand bure have jetted hot tubs, and the elevated Vonu Point cottage has even greater privacy and the ultimate view. À la carte breakfasts are served on the sand, chef's choice three-course lunches are taken around the island (if not ordered from a special picnic lunch menu), and communal dinners are also chef's choice, although guests can make requests or dine alone. There's a six-night minimum stay.
