Dolphin Island, Fiji

Located just 30 minutes by boat from shore, on the tip of Viti Levu, Fiji, Dolphin Island nestles like a precious jewel, surrounded by crystal-clear waters. Following arrival at Nadi International Airport, guests can travel for 2.5 hours by private car (included within tariff), or choose to transfer by float plane or helicopter to Dolphin Island. The island's own private boat will then transfer guests to their own private island retreat where on arrival, they will be immediately enveloped by the beauty and luxurious accommodation that awaits. Traditional Fijian warmth and hospitality is provided by our host couple Stanley and Dawn Simpson. They will look after you as little or as much as you want ensuring a supply of delicious meals, drinks and a cocktail (or two) are presented according to your taste. They also have the local knowledge that is such a great help making the hard decisions in regard to your recreational pursuits.

The main bure, with its fabulous traditional palm-thatched roof and architecturally detailed elevation holds centre court, with a pair of equally picturesque guest bure suites sitting to each side in perfect harmony. This group of buildings are at one with the landscape and every aspect of their design ensures perfect enjoyment of the island’s nurturing and lush natural landscape. Renowned interior designer Virginia Fisher has ensured Dolphin Island offers an extraordinary guest experience. Ambience is in great abundance as Virginia’s sense of place emerges strongly, as she references colours, textures and patterns from the Pacific – boldly and with her absolutely innate sense of style. Every level of guest comfort has been considered from thirsty beach towels to perfumed candles – and the total effect is utter magic.

Aquatic adventures abound, with warm, clear waters and coral reefs providing the perfect habitat for amazing marine life.
