Whether it’s your own five-star private island villa, a sprawling family resort with amazing clubs, a stunning eco-lodge for the conscientious traveller, across Fiji’s 333 beautiful and unique islands, there’s something to suit every one.
Fiji offers warm temperatures and abundant sunshine throughout the year, making it a desirable destination at any time. However, the period from May to October is the most sought after, as the weather conditions are ideal with clear blue skies, low humidity, and minimal rainfall.
The currency in Fiji is the Fijian dollar (FJD). While the Fijian dollar is the official currency, US dollars are widely accepted in most tourist areas, hotels, and major establishments. It is advisable to carry some Fijian dollars for smaller vendors and remote areas.
For US citizens visiting Fiji as tourists, no visa is required for stays of up to four months. Upon arrival, you will receive a visitor’s permit valid for the duration of your stay. However, it is recommended to check the latest visa requirements before traveling, as they can be subject to change.
Fijians have a rich and vibrant culture. It’s important to respect their customs and traditions. When visiting villages or participating in traditional ceremonies, it is customary to dress modestly and remove hats. It is also polite to ask for permission before taking someone’s picture.
Domestic flights are available between the major islands in Fiji. Helicopter transfers are also popular for reaching remote resorts. On the larger islands, you can hire taxis or rental cars. Luxury resorts often provide airport transfers for their guests, and some even have private yachts for transportation.
Tipping is not a customary practice in Fiji. However, it is becoming more common in upscale establishments and luxury resorts. It is not expected but appreciated if you receive exceptional service. Some resorts may have a staff Christmas fund where guests can contribute instead of individual tipping.
