Resorts in Fiji with Overwater Villas
Imagine escaping to a tropical island paradise, where you wake each morning to the sound of gently lapping waves, before stepping out onto a private sundeck with stunning lagoon views. Staying in an overwater villa is an experience on many traveller’s bucket list, and it’s no surprise as to why.
However, you don’t need to travel all the way to Bora Bora to have this luxurious resort experience – some of the world’s very best overwater villas are right here in Fiji, just a short flight away! Here are four of Fiji’s most beautiful overwater accommodations.
Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay
Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay is home to the most accessible overwater bures in Fiji. Overlooking a stunning azure lagoon, this five-star resort is just 45 minutes from Nadi Airport and is the only resort with overwater accommodation on Fiji’s main island. This is the place to stay if you’re looking for a luxury overwater villa experience, while being within easy reach of Fiji’s most notable attractions.
This resort boasts 22 adults-only Overwater Lagoon Bure Villas, reachable via an expansive boardwalk that stretches across the cerulean waters of the lagoon. Inside, you’ll find a spacious area with vaulted ceilings, complete with a plush king-sized bed, a comfortable lounge area and an ensuite bathroom with a freestanding bathtub. However, the highlight of these villas is the expansive private deck, which offers stunning views and steps descending into the calm waters of Momi Bay.
Beyond your luxurious Overwater Lagoon Bure Villa, there are plenty of memorable experiences to enjoy at Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay. Relax on the sands of the private resort beach or float in one of three swimming pools, including an adults-only infinity pool with sunset views. There’s also two outdoor tennis courts, a serene day spa offering a full menu of restorative services and six restaurants and bars, serving everything from Mediterranean cuisine to Asian-Fusion delights. In the evenings, you can enjoy traditional Fijian entertainment, such as Polynesian fire performances, village choir shows and a Fijian Meke.
Musket Cove Island Resort & Marina
Musket Cove Island Resort & Marina has some of the most spacious overwater villas in Fiji. Offering a true barefoot island experience, this stunning resort is perfectly positioned in the Mamanuca Islands, with 400 acres of tropical gardens, secluded walking trails and palm-fringed islands to explore.
Exclusive to adult guests, Musket Cove Island Resort & Marina has six Lagoon Bures, which fan out from the water’s edge of a beautiful inland lagoon canal. These open-plan, residence-style villas feature a comfortable bedroom, a separate living area and an ensuite bathroom. Most importantly, these bures boast a spacious wooden deck that offers uninterrupted views across the lagoon. This is the ideal spot to sip your morning cup of coffee while watching a gorgeous Fijian sunrise.
The Lagoon Bures are just a short walk from the rest of the resort, where you can enjoy a vast variety of onsite activities. Plus, Musket Cove Island Resort & Marina is ideally positioned close to the other islands within the Mamanuca archipelago. Join one of regular island hopping, dolphin watching and fishing excursions, which offer a chance to discover more of this South Pacific paradise.
Every stay at Musket Cove Island Resort & Marina is inclusive of breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dining here is top-notch, as every dish is sourced from nothing but the freshest local and imported produce, with a large percentage coming from the resort’s own organic farm. Be sure to check out the Yacht Club Island Bar, an island hotspot connected to the resort by a floating marina walkway and the perfect setting for sunset cocktails
Likuliku Lagoon Resort
Fiji’s most luxurious overwater experience can be found at Likuliku Lagoon Resort. This adults-only haven is located in the heart of the Mamanuca Islands and is home to Fiji’s first authentic overwater bures. With a name that translates to ‘calm waters’, a peaceful Fiji escape is guaranteed when staying at Likuliku Lagoon Resort.
This resort features just ten private Overwater Bures, each perched on the edge of a vibrant fringing reef. Jump from your sundeck into the pristine lagoon below to snorkel amongst 400 coral species and 1200 varieties of reef fish. From your Overwater Bure, the resort resembles an ancient Fijian village, with its central building designed to look like a traditional Fijian canoe house.
Each Overwater Bure at Likuliku Lagoon Resort has been built with authentic architecture, natural materials and traditional features, including woven coconut husk art and hand-carved wooden window pelmets. You’ll also enjoy modern comforts, like a king-sized bed, air conditioning, wifi and a flatscreen television. Complete your Overwater Bure experience with champagne and canapes delivered daily at sunset from the resort’s head chef.
Likuliku Lagoon Resort spoils guests with a variety of luxurious facilities, including a beautiful infinity pool, a tranquil day spa and an exquisite restaurant with an emphasis on local seafood and South Pacific flavours. Also on offer are a range of immersive resort activities, such as village visits, island hopping tours and water sports.
Koro Sun Resort
Discover your very own slice of Fijian paradise when staying in the overwater bures at Koro Sun Resort. Set within a 160-acre sanctuary on Vanua Levu, this beautiful resort is surrounded by nothing but sparkling blue ocean and lush emerald rainforest. Despite its remote location, getting here is as simple as taking a connecting flight from Nadi Airport and driving a short 15-minutes to the resort.
Koro Sun Resort offers eight Edgewater Floating Bures, the only ones of its kind in Fiji. Offering a true on-the-water experience, these bures are furnished with traditional Fijian décor with touches of nautical style, along with tropical thatched roofing. A ladder from your sundeck drops straight into the calm waters below, where you can swim with tropical fish, turtles and stingrays. Each Edgewater Floating Bure also comes with its very own two-person kayak, so you can explore the surrounding waters at your leisure.
Other facilities at Koro Sun Resort include the Rainforest Spa, where treatments utilise natural, locally-sourced ingredients, and the adults-only Edgewater Beach Club, where you can relax poolside with a cocktail in hand.
