Dolphin Island Fiji

The Huka Retreats is proud to announce the re-launch of Dolphin Island, Fiji. This stunning 14-acre private retreat now re-joins sister properties Huka Lodge, New Zealand, and Grande Provence Estate, South Africa following an extensive period of renovation and refurbishment.

The property now boasts a magnificent new presence and offers a maximum of just eight guests the ultimate private Pacific island experience, on an exclusive-use basis.

Bure & Suites

The main bure holds center court, enjoying an elevated position above the infinity pool and a series of poolside areas perfectly designated for relaxation. Perfect for time spent lying on day beds (either pre or post a dip in the infinity pool), or for alfresco dining.

Casual groups of plantation-style chairs and soft feather-filled sofas beckon, as one day draws seamlessly into the next.  As the last rays of the sun catch on the tips of the palm trees and sink into the ocean, the open verandah, with its banks of bi-fold doors offers the perfect venue for a tropical cocktail or a glass or two of chilled wine.   Guest Bure Suites | Hilltop Sleep-out Bure

Food on Dolphin island often can be best described as Fijian fusion in style – a unique blend of traditional Fijian flavors and ingredients combined with elements of Indo-Fijian cuisine creates a fabulous array of taste sensations. Spices, chilies, coconut, seafood, fresh fish, limes, indigenous vegetables, and exotic tropical fruits all feature on the menu.

Guests enjoy the best Fiji has to offer when Manager, Dawn Simpson, is preparing dishes for their enjoyment. Dawn is also happy to generously share the secrets of her kitchen with guests during their stay and to take them to the local market where she goes to carefully select her to produce.

With 14 acres of the private island as a playground guests often do not feel the need to ever leave, however, should you choose to – a wonderful variety of experiences are available, in the soft coral capital of the world. Aquatic adventures abound, with warm, clear waters and coral reefs providing the perfect habitat for amazing marine life.

Guests can snorkel, tank dive, sail, kayak, swim, and fish with carefully selected operators whose local knowledge is invaluable. Cultural visits to nearby villages, sightseeing, and tours to areas of historical interest can be arranged, as can pampering massages and facials.  Kayaking | Local Life | Wellbeing

Guests can go on two-hour hand-line fishing trips to sheltered reefs to fish for magnificent coral cod, sea trout, and snapper. Great fun as a family activity, with plenty of fish to be caught and much excitement every time one is safely landed on board. All fishing gear provided.

World-class diving experiences await in the pristine Bligh Waters surrounding Dolphin Island. Both snorkeling and tank diving trips can be arranged for guests with carefully selected, specialized local operators.

Water temperatures are very warm, visibility underwater is extremely high, with the soft coral and schools of fish abundant in terms of both quality and variety. The beauty and diversity of this marine paradise is breathtaking and our dive team has all the local knowledge to ensure you enjoy every minute of it.
Four reef systems, with 25 dive sites are readily accessible, with a range of 20-minute (to Hailstone Reef), to just under a one-hour boat journey (to the Vatu-i-Ra Passage).

Located just 20 minutes by boat from shore, on the tip of Viti Levu, Fiji, Dolphin Island nestles like a precious jewel, surrounded by crystal-clear waters. Upon arrival at Nadi International Airport, guests can travel for 2.5 hours by private car, 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.

With your own private island, you and your family have the freedom to create your very own bespoke family experiences and operate to your own schedule. Manager, Dawn and her team are only too happy to make sure you have everything you need to have an absolutely amazing time on Dolphin Island. Our warm and friendly Fijian staff adore children and will ensure the younger members of your family have a wonderful stay on Dolphin Island. They are also available for babysitting, should this be required. Children’s menus can be created especially to ensure lots of delicious treats are always on hand.

Recently Dolphin Island was the chosen venue for a very intimate ceremony attended by the bride and groom’s closest family members, who all stayed with them over the celebration.

Dolphin Island provides the most extraordinary romantic place to honeymoon. The level of privacy offered is unrivalled and everything is designed to meet your needs and your daily schedule. Meals will be prepared and served when and where you want them and each day is utterly your own.

Looking after what is precious to us for our local team, our local community, our natural environment, our reef, and our future comes naturally on Dolphin Island. Being a private "exclusive use" island we only purchase what we need because we always know how many guests we have coming to stay.

We purchase goods from local communities, support local workers, and our maximum of eight guests helps preserve the island’s environment, on and off shore.
