Savor the flavors of Fiji
For the ultimate tropical romance vacation, nothing compares to the islands of Fiji. Discover tranquil waters offering endless play, indulgent spa resorts, exciting activities, tempting cuisine, fascinating cultures, and romantic touches like flower petal decorations and candlelit dining.
Aside from offering the ultimate in romantic dining locations, Fiji’s culinary scene bustles with innovative chefs applying cutting-edge techniques to local ingredients. The result is nothing short of sublime.
Owing to its island location, Fiji’s cuisine leans heavily on seafood ingredients. Its lush, tropical climate offers an ideal environment for vegetable and herb gardening, and many resorts maintain gardens to keep their restaurants supplied with the freshest, most local produce possible.
At Vomo Island Resort, for example, an on-site garden provides produce and herbs that become key ingredients in the Reef Restaurant’s menu offerings. On balmy evenings, guests may dine poolside, and lunch is often served under the trees on the beach.
At Koro Sun Resort & Rainforest Spa, the organic garden is tended by guests and staff alike. Meals are prepared in Pacific Rim style, using the freshest ingredients from the garden and surrounding waters.
Tokoriki Island Resort takes great pride in its Oishii Teppanyaki restaurant, where guests are treated not just to a meal, but an entertaining culinary experience. Chefs work wonders with their knives and utensils, preparing delicious meals tableside accompanied by entertaining banter in a classic Fijian bure.
Also not to be missed during your visit to Fiji is the traditional Lovo Feast. Comparable to a Hawaiian Luau, meats are roasted slowly in a pit dug in the ground over rocks that have been heated on a fire. The result is tender, succulent meat and a family-style meal with plenty of side dishes to sample, including taro and breadfruit as well as seafood that is cooked wrapped in banana leaves.
We all have to eat to survive, but when done right, dining on vacation is one of the experiences that creates lasting memories of a perfect voyage.
