Dolphin Island Fiji - Full-Time Travel

Dolphin Island Fiji

In these overstimulated, permanently connected modern times, solitude can feel like the biggest luxury. Alex van Heeren knew this when he created Dolphin Island, a 14-acre private retreat so exclusive it only accommodates eight guests at a time. Take a short boat ride over from Viti Levu (as if the largest island in the Fijian archipelago wasn’t gasp-inducing enough) and arrive at this exclusive resort in time for a sundowner by the infinity pool. After dark, check into your private suite and watch the ocean, looking all glossy in the moonlight, through giant beach-facing windows.

Each room is methodically designed for tropical living at its best. Case in point: the hilltop sleep-out bure. Think a luxurious open air treehouse with thatched roof and four-poster bed. During the day, laze on your own private beach and take full advantage of aquatic activities including snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding. Then dine under the stars with Fijian cuisine (aromatic fish curries and fresh ceviches) made just for you by Dolphin Island’s resident chef Dawn. Bula!
