Stays are tailor-made with land and water activities, in-villa massage treatments, and chefs specializing in organic, Pacific Rim cuisine, all caught and grown locally, and prepared to guest specifications. The resort is all-inclusive with transport to and from Nadi or Suva on its private aircraft. While the island caters to adults, the entire island may be booked for families seeking the ultimate in privacy. Four-night minimum, prices upon request; vatuvara.com


Wakaya Club & Spa

This private island resort features eight one-bedroom Oceanfront bures (Fijian for “house”), a two-bedroom Ambassador’s Bure with a private pool, and a sprawling 4,500-square-foot, three bedroom Valeo Bure (meaning “home in the clouds”). Sega Na Leqa is a design-heavy, 12,000-square-foot one-bedroom mansion plus guest villa, three pools, a gym, a spa, and a full chef ’s kitchen. The resort’s spa and restaurant are unbeatable.

Six Senses Fiji

Opened in April, these 24 villas and nine multi-bedroom residences are a 35-minute boat ride or 10-minute helicopter flight from Nadi. With wellness as a main focus, a Guest Experience Maker, or GEM, arranges spa treatments as well as water sports throughout each guest’s stay. The resort’s own marina welcomes travelers arriving by yacht. From $1,000; sixsenses.com


Nanuku Auberge Resort

Thirty-seven suites, villas, and multi-bedroom residences comprise the resort, located a two-hour drive or a quick helicopter ride from Nadi International Airport. Each guest is assigned an itokani, meaning “best buddy” in Fijian. This person oversees every element of guests’ stays and works with them to build their adventure itinerary outside the resort. Kids of all ages are assigned nannies or can live their best lives at the kids club. From $450; aubergeresorts.com
