Taveuni Island Resort Fiji, oh how I wish I was there!

The news that tomorrow will be this winters coldest day- 8 degrees including the windchill factor- has me reminicing about my honeymoon in warm and sunny Fiji...

We were lucky enough to stay at the Taveuni Island Resort and Spa for 14 blissful days (plus 2 nights at the Hilton on Denaru Island in Nadi).

Taveuni Island is about one and a half hours flight from Nadi and is well worth the ride in that little plane!
Oh, and the view is spectacular!After being met at the airport by resort owner, the lovely Do, we made the quick trip to the resort to be greeted by our luxurious honeymoon bure- the Veidomoni.

The bure was fabulous; huge bedroom, spacious living area, patio with comfy daybeds, 2 bathrooms plus an outdoor showe
r however absolutely nothing could compete with the view!!
(me with my Fijian shell necklace, just one of our thoughtful welcome gifts)

The view of our cliff-side bure over breakfast

Poolside- where we spent most of our days
With only 8 bures at the resort we often had the pool to ourself.
3 course meals, 3 times a day, afternoon naps and cocktail hour starting about 4 'o clock- the perfect holiday!
aaahhh! Bliss! Two very happy, slightly tanned and super relaxed honeymooners!

... well, not that happy- it was our last day on the island before heading back to wintry Sydney, which is where this post began!
