Stay in a beachfront or overwater bure

A bure is a traditional Fijian hut or bungalow with a thatched roof and wood. Many resorts offer beachfront bure-style accommodation as one of their more deluxe sleeping options, providing the perfect mix of traditional Fijian culture and ultimate island relaxation with modern and luxurious touches.

Choose a private and eco-friendly bure which overlooks the tranquil waters for a romantic getaway. Many resorts are designed for couples, offering an ambience of romance and intimacy. For couples who prefer to feel more among nature, you can opt for a garden bure, which offers a little more privacy and seclusion than those located on the beachfront, but is still within easy access of the water. For the ultimate in truly luxurious  experiences , one can also  stay in overwater bures.
