Add a dose of luxury to your next vacation in Fiji with the following seven luxury travel tips, written with the sole purpose of providing you with some incremental steps you can slowly implement into your holiday routine, leading you towards achieving the jet-set lifestyle the rich and famous experience at a price you can afford.

Fiji Journal Top Tip #1 – Offseason Travel 

The Fijian Offseason is between the months of November and April. Some of the major benefits of travelling during these handful of months are as follows:

  • The flights and accommodations are rarely fully booked and are normally cheaper across the board.
  • The weather is generally good all year round; between November and April (the wet season), you will encounter periods of heavy rainfall, with the heavens suddenly opening up with torrential rainfall lasting for normally 5–10 minutes, then suddenly stopping, with the sun appearing again as if nothing has happened.
  • You can avoid the crowds, typically at a time of the year when the children are at school, so it’s perfect for adult-related holidays, though the weeks surrounding Christmas festivities can be ideal for a quick family escape.

Fiji Journal Top Tip #2 – Rent a Private Villa or Apartment

Renting an Apartment or Private Villa with a group of friends or family members will provide a lower price per person per night ratio while allowing you to have five-star facilities such as a swimming pool, a professional chef, and a private beach, to name a few.

Fiji Journal Top Tip #3 – Location Location Location

By just stepping outside the Tourism Hub, such as Denarau Island, and starting your search in the general area of Nadi (Namaka, Wailoaloa Beach, Martintar, and Momi Bay), you will open your eyes to a large variety of smaller, privately run establishments and Airbnbs. They can literally be a few streets away from the bustling tourism hubs, but you can save instantly.

Fiji Journal Top Tip #4 – Points to Travel

This may seem like the most obvious, but by getting the right credit card specifically geared towards earning you travel points on every card transaction, knowing that each time you will be contributing to your future vacation, the benefits will be clearly seen in the opportunities available to you to upgrade your flight seat to business class or your hotel accommodations on vacation at the time of booking.

Fiji Journal Top Tip #5 – Social Media Promote Venue

Use your social influence: nearly everyone now has a social media presence among the many available social media platforms on their phones. Simply adding the appropriate hashtags and promoting the venue you are staying at will, depending on your number of followers and interactions, make the venue more aware of your presence. This has led to many individuals being given an upgrade at the hotel or resort, a complimentary meal at one of their restaurants, or simply a glass of chilled champagne. The more you do this during your travels, the greater the opportunities become.

Fiji Journal Top Tip #6 – Checkout the hotel website

This is universally forgotten by most travellers, who automatically think that the prices will be substantially higher on the hotel’s own website than on the multitude of booking platforms that hug the top of all search engine results, but most of the hotels and resorts automatically give 30 percent of their fees to these international companies simply for the exposure of their brand. By booking directly with them via their website, you will not only potentially save big, but the venues will benefit as well. A little bit of deep diving might be required to find their seasonal specials and last-minute offers, as the venue’s website typically won’t automatically give you the best deal.

Fiji Journal Top Tip #7 – Baby Steps – Every journey begins with a single step

When you have a taste of the high life, it becomes addictive. Even if you are unable to live the luxurious life for your full holiday, start slow and steady; start with a luxury meal at one of the finest restaurants; stay at one of the many 5-star resorts for the final few nights of your holiday; or simply try a fine wine during a meal with your friends and family that is perfectly paired with your cuisine. Slow, incremental steps will lead you towards living the high life every time you take to the air.
