    There are so many fantastic activities and highlights to enjoy on your 8-day getaway, but perhaps the highlight is the Robinson Crusoe Sunset Cruise. The night comes alive on Robinson Crusoe Island. Set just 30-minutes off the mainland, about halfway between Denarau Island and the Coral Coast, this serene tropical island transforms and becomes the site of vibrant activity and incredible cultural feats. Fire lights up the shoreline as the stars fill the sky, string band music dances on the breeze and beaming locals stand poised ready to welcome you in! Join the fun or just sit back and watch—the choice is completely up to you!

    Visit Fiji's capital city

    Suva is one of the most cosmopolitan centres in the South Pacific, home to around a third of Fiji’s population. As a major centre for trade since then, you’ll find many buildings from the British colonial era amongst the city’s more modern high-rise buildings. Be sure to spend time exploring this tropical metropolis with shopping malls, farmers markets, restaurants and entertainment.

    Pacific Harbour, Fiji's 'Adventure Capital'

    Fiji’s adventure centre, Pacific Harbour stretches over 50km of continuous coastline in the south of Viti Levu.

    FAQ: Single, twin-share and more

    What is twin-share, triple-share and quad-share?

    The share-basis is about accommodation pricing. It does not mean that you share a room with a stranger.

    "Twin-share" is where two people occupy a hotel room (open-plan style) or other accommodation such as an apartment, usually a couple or two friends. This is the normal way accommodation is priced. The price is shared between two people. Most accommodation properties (eg. hotels) offer rooms with king, queen or double beds. Most offer the option of "twin" beds as well which actually means two single beds to accommodate singles sharing, couples wanting space and so-on.

    "Triple share" is where three people occupy the accommodation and share the price. "Quad-share" is where four people occupy the accommodation and share the price. Family apartments and hotel rooms usually include a king, queen or double bed and one or more single beds to handle triple and quad-share arrangements. Sometimes other bedding configurations are available as well.

    What is a seasonal adjustment?

    Some accommodation providers, especially in very popular holiday locations, have higher room rates for busy holiday periods (usually spring and summer holidays). We must make an allowance for those price variations if applicable.

    What is a single supplement?

    A "single supplement" applies to single travellers who want a room to themselves. Because the price is not shared, a "single supplement" applies. This additional amount is based on the single covering the entire accommodation component of the trip that would normally be split between two or more people.
