Thinking of saying ‘I do’ overseas? Fiji Tourism’s Maria Apii has all the inspiration you’ll need.
What makes the Coral Coast such a spectacular place for a wedding?
As a well-established holiday destination, the Coral Coast offers both the full resort experience and the chance to visit the real Fiji. There are some wonderful choices available in terms of the type of celebrations that can be held here, from a chapel wedding at the luxurious InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa, to a garden wedding at Warwick Fiji Resort & Spa, to a beachside ceremony at Outrigger on the Lagoon, Fiji.
Where is it exactly?
An hour’s drive from Nadi, the Coral Coast is an 80km stretch of beaches that lies between Nadi and Suva.
Why should couples choose Fiji for their destination wedding?
Blessed with 333 beautiful tropical islands, Fiji attracts more couples and honeymooners than any other destination in the South Pacific. Hidden island escapes, tropical forests, deserted beaches and world-class resorts provide the perfect backdrop for a wedding. But what really sets us apart is our people – we like to think this is the happiest place on earth. Nothing is ever too much, no request is too big or small, and with decades of experience organising weddings, our professionals really know how to deliver.
Is transport both to the area and around it easy?
Being just an hour from Nadi International Airport, the Coral Coast is accessible, yet it still provides a true Fiji experience. Transfers run frequently from the airport/Denarau and allow you to check out some of the beautiful scenery along the coastline on the way.
What activities are available on the Coast to entertain guests?
The resorts on the Coast have fabulous facilities to keep their guests entertained, and there are numerous options in the surrounding areas too. Enjoy coastal activities like diving and snorkelling, or discover the local villages and the culture in the hinterland. Sigatoka River Safari provides an authentic experience inland and enables visitors to learn about Fiji’s history and experience village life. A visit to the Sigatoka Market and Sigatoka township is a must.
Have you experienced any truly unique destination weddings?
While this is not on the Coral Coast, it is something very special. Offshore from Lomani Island Resort in Fiji’s idyllic Mamanuca Islands, a wedding can be set up on a private sand cay. It’s all in the timing of the tides!
What about couples who want to honeymoon after they've tied the knot?
The Coral Coast is also home to many award-winning spas, perfect for some pampering after the wedding. And though the Coral Coast is a perfect honeymoon destination in itself, if a couple wants a different experience, they could head to one of our wonderful adults-only island sanctuaries for a truly luxurious experience. Royal Davui Island Resort at Beqa Lagoon or Likuliku Lagoon Resort in the Mamanucas are ideal for such a getaway. A stunning location, friendly people, fabulous food, the best beaches – what more could you ask for?
