We are looking at honeymooning in FIJI next July, I've been looking at brochures and it all looks really beautiful, I'm a bit worried that I'm going to get bored though - sounds silly huh. But I like to be busy and would want to do activities everyday. I notice some places do deep sea fishing? Anyone done that?
Any recommendations on where to stay? I think I'd like to split it up between a couple of resorts and resorts where young couples go (not families on school vacation) - any recommendations.
Would love to hear your stories/advice/recommendations

I will be watching this topic as this is where we are planning on going. We are currently considering Tokoriki (looks divine).
Where are you considering?

We just got back from Matamanoa Island and it was beautiful!!
We had the best time ever! We went snorkling, fishing, swimming and at like pigs!!
Most islands have activities that you can participate in during the day as well so you wont get bored!
On Matamanoa, they had free fishing trips, or ones you can pay for, coconut tree climbing demonstrations, volley ball, table tennis. You can also borrow games and books!
Take a look at it as we had a ball! And the people that work there are fantastic!!

There is also this other website I've found that I havent had a good look through, Fiji, Trip Advisor.
But still not 100% sure, would love to hear more from people that have honeymooned there and the resorts they stayed at and what there is to do, all the brochures say 'Relax, stroll, eat and swim' but I want more to do!

Have a look over the old threads as there were alot of posts not too recently outlining what was good and what wasn't. You will get some really beneficial feedback from them and it could help you make a decision about where to go.

It looks like it requires more consideration and planning I think, I think the hardest part is choosing a resort (or 2 or 3... )
Thanks for the advice, there is so much information out there of Fiji and each island looks as beautiful as the next, it is so hard choosing. I think I want somewhere where it is Adults Only, a lot of activities, a choice of places to eat and no muddy beaches!! A swim up bar is always a bonus too!!!
If only Bali hadnt gone so downhill I reckon another trip there would have been lots of fun! You never know, perhaps Fiji could be the next Bali??!!

and there is HEAPS to do. Don't just think about activities that the resorts have to offer.
also, there is a blue lagoon cruise I think, where you can swim in/around caves ?

Does anyone know what the weather is like in april?
I think April is part of the cyclone season, but the last month of it ?
We stayed 4 nights at The Warwick and 4 nights on Treasure Island.

We thought we would try an island this time.
I've heard that the island were they filmed "Temptation Island" is supposed to be really nice. Has anyone been there?

Anything else I should know??
I think my honeymoon might clash with school holidays, that could suck.

we have just got back from our honeymoon on Tokoriki - believe me, it is the perfect honeymoon destination in my opinion. We were there for 9 nights and didnt run out of things to do - in saying that I also like to relax by the pool a bit aswell. We have stayed in the beach bures & also the honeymoon bures and both are fantastic.
I have also stayed at the Shangri-La (last year) & we hated it. Way too big, not personalised service at all, kids everywhere and the rooms dont come close to the ones at Tokoriki. Great for families but not honeymooners in my opinion. In saying this we went there from Tokoriki so we had high expectations.
This is just my opinion - I know others have gone to the Shangri-La and loved it so it depends on what you are looking for. There would be more activities and options of things to do at the Shangri-La.
Hope this helps.

At this stage I am wide open to suggestions , I have been surfing the net looking up all these different Fiji islands and they are starting to all look the same, I think the key to having a good honeymoon in Fiji is to finding the right resort!
I was on the Tokoriki website and it did look amazing and I thought, hmmm I could spend a few nights here that was until I saw what the room rate was per night - was it really that much to stay there????
Apparently when Bali's tourism suffers Fiji tends to profit so they dont need to be as competitive.
I think Fiji is definately going to be our honeymoon destination, just need to make some decisions now so still interested to take whatever advice I can get
