Ten acres of pure South Pacific paradise, Royal Davui—just 16 secluded villas sprinkled around a tiny, private island—caters to all tastes, whether you’re an adventure seeker or just looking for a few days in the sun.
For the former, marine staff take guests on Fiji’s premier shark dive, descending 80 feet to the dark waters inhabited by eight species of shark, including bulls and tigers, which swim so close, you can touch them.
The island is also ringed by an impressive coral reef—a fin-and-snorkel circum- navigation of Davui takes about two hours.
But the island is also well equipped for a slower pace. There’s a shaded, seaside pool handily outfitted with special flags that allow sunbathers to summon another drink from the bar, relieving you of any need to get up.
There’s also a full-service spa, and a restaurant (all meals are included) set on a multi level patio overlooking the ocean and neighboring Beqa Island. Or you can just hang out in your villa—each one comes with its own private plunge pool, two balconies, a spacious lounge area and a whirlpool tub, while the largest suite features an outdoor shower and a giant wraparound deck—perfect for having a few friends over (about $1,570 a night).
