Eco-friendly resort Six Senses Fiji takes the (coconut-flavoured) barefoot luxury cake. The spoiling spa uses locally sourced unguents, the beachfront restaurant and bar use ingredients grown on site, and the entire thing is 100 per cent solar powered. Each private hideaway has its own plunge pool and experience manager; most steps from the beach. There’s also a sprawling beachfront infinity pool, a Surf Academy with instructors, watersports' kit to borrow and PADI lessons on site. Start your mornings with alfresco yoga sessions and end the day with film nights under the stars.

FACILITIES

At the hotel

Free WiFi, private beach, spa. In rooms: TV, WiFi, minibar, cocktail-making kit, wine fridge, free bottled water, tea- and coffee-making facilities, egg basket, air-conditioning and Essence of Fiji bath products.

Our favourite rooms

Book a Beachfront Pool Villa if you want to feel the sand under your feet just after (or during) your morning cup of coffee.

Poolside

The 25m beachfront infinity pool is beside a sunlounger-lined pool terrace with a fire pit. All villas, suites and Residences also have their own private pools.

Spa

The spoiling Six Senses Spa Fiji has four treatment rooms, hot and cold whirlpools, a wet area relaxation deck, alchemy bar (where you can concoct your own unguents) and spa boutique. Treatments use traditional Fijian medicinal plants grown in the resort’s garden; choose from a range of Six Senses signature massages, antioxidant-rich facials and tropical fruit-infused body treatments. Take your wellness journey to the next level with personalised holistic programmes, including the Sleep & Resilience and Full Potential paths. There’s also an ocean-view treetop yoga pavilion and a state-of-the-art gym.

Packing tips

Bring your underwater camera for snorkelling excursions and your sense of adventure for surf lessons.

Also

Due to the raised building platforms and remote nature of the resort, it is not suited to wheelchairs.

Children

Welcome in all room types; multi-bedroom residences can accommodate families and large groups. The Grow With Six Senses kids club can keep littles entertained, and Residences come with a free nanny services.

Eco‐friendly

Extremely. The resort is 100 per cent solar powered, has its own water purifying and bottling plant, and recycles (grey water too) and composts. Much of the food is grown on site in the fruit-, veg- and herb-filled garden; eggs and honey are collected from the resort’s farm. Timber for the buildings was sourced from recycled wood, and locally-sourced and reclaimed materials are used throughout. Green cleaning products, bath products and energy efficient light bulbs are used too.

FOOD AND DRINK

Hotel restaurant

Tovolea Restaurant is set on a sunset-facing strip of the beach in front of the sprawling infinity pool. This relaxed venue incorporates traditional Fijian design and barefoot luxury. Chef Ihaka Peri crafts a daily changing menu of grilled dishes and fresh local seafood. Dishes include the likes of poached Mahi Mahi, aubergine and pepper sambal and cumin yoghurt. RaRa restaurant and bar is open for low-key lunches and dinners; here you’ll find locally inspired café dishes. It also has a gourmet delia where you can pick up takeaway treats to bundle over to your villa or pack up for a picnic; offerings include cheese, freshly baked goods and wine. Alfresco TeiTei Pizzeria cookes up wood-fired pizzas using ingredients plucked from the adjacent garden; pull up a seat in this outdoor eatery or take your pizza to-go and meander over to the outdoor KaloKalo Cinema. Last, but certainly not least, guests can swing by the ice creamery anytime they’d like for on-the-house frozen treats; flavours range from the classic to the tropical. 

Hotel bar

Beachfront Tovolea Bar is aptly placed for sundowners; cocktails are concocted with house-made ales, bitters, tonics, probiotics and kombuchas.

Last orders

Enjoy leisurely breakfasts from 7.30am to 10am, lingering lunches from noon to 3pm, and drawn-out dinners from 6.30pm to 9pm.

Room service

Order items off RaRa Restaurant and Bar’s menu, the children’s menu and the à la carte breakfast menu to your island abode whenever you please.

LOCATION

Planes

Nadi International Airport is 20km away; from there, you’ll catch a ride to the marina and a boat to Six Senses Fiji. Contact our Smith24 team to arrange flights and transfers.

Other

The speedboat journey from Denarau Marina on the mainland takes 35 minutes. Shared speedboat transfer prices cost FJ$200 each way for adults and FJ$100 each way for under-12s; transfers are free for under-twos.

Worth getting out of bed for

Professional coaching for surfers of all ages and abilities is provided by Tropicsurf; world-class breaks, including the famous Cloudbreak, are just a short boat ride from the island. The surrounding crystal clear waters are also prime diving and snorkelling spots; PADI dive courses and days diving by nearby Malolo Lalai Island can be arranged. You’ll get free use of non-motorised watersports kit - kayaks, paddle boards and catboats – during your stay; jet skis are on hand to rent too. If you fancy a drier pursuit, trek up to the island’s highest peak for stunning 360-degree views or pick up some local culinary tricks with a class in the dedicated cookery school. Unwind with a gentle yoga session or spend a relaxed evening under the stars at the outdoor cinema. 

Local restaurants

There’s no need to leave the island, but if you fancy venturing further afield, day trips can be arranged to Malamala Beach Club on nearby Malamala Island. While there, indulge in everything from poolside snacks to sharing platters of South Pacific cuisine and handcrafted tropical cocktails. Floating restaurant Cloud 9 is a slightly surreal dining experience; the split-level platform dishes out wood-fired pizzas and imported drinks.
