Fiji Stay & Play Package at Yasawa Island Resort & Spa
When times call for romance, be it honeymoon or the perfect getaway, Fiji is there to oblige. A 10-hour flight from the U.S. West Coast, most flights are night flights: some dinner, two movies, a nap and you’re there. Yasawa Island Resort, an added 35-minute seaplane flight from Nadi International Airport, is running packages through June 2014 that allow guests to stay three nights and pay for two … five nights and pay for four … or seven nights and pay for five. The single-resort island features 18 thatched Fiji-style bungalows packed with luxury and design. Rates run around $850 per night, not including taxes and gratuities, and the island air transport may add another few hundred dollars per person. But the stay is inclusive of meals with private dining options and beach picnics, plus a roster of daily activities.
