Fiji sevens men’s rugby team took gold in the Tokyo Olympics, and they defended their 2016 Rio title making them back-to-back champions! In 2021, Fiji beat new Zealand 27-12 in the gold medal match at Tokyo stadium. To continue this theme we have started to create a collection of the top 7 – venues, attractions, and places to eat across Fiji. These venues have gained international recognition and breathtaking reviews within the industry.
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.

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.

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
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).
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.
