Filled with beauty, luxury, exclusivity, relaxation, and the friendliest population in the world, Fiji is an ideal location for a business retreat, meeting or conference. Some of the most productive and creative ideas could happen while stress is low and people are gazing at a tropical paradise unlike anywhere else on earth!
Fiji has it all to keep you productive during the meeting. And when you are ready to take a break from work, Fiji has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world for utter relaxation, world-class spas for unwinding, and adventurous activities to get the adrenaline flowing. Here are nine reasons to convince you, if you aren’t already!
- Lots of options for accommodations
From your own private island to a larger hotel close to the airport, Fiji offers a wide variety of accommodations. For more intimate, smaller meetings, Fiji has majestic five-star resorts where you could rent out the island for your company. Imagine having your own luxurious, freestanding bure (villa) to stretch out in before gathering for meetings in the conference space on the resort, which directly overlooks beautiful turquoise blue waters. Resorts like Namale or Royal Davui could be perfect options.
For large-scale meetings and conferences, hotels near the airport, such as Intercontinental Fiji or Sofitel Fiji, can accommodate all of your employees or guests. And you’ll get into and out of the meeting quickly and easily with the options close to the airport.
- Beautiful surroundings and activities that help encourage creativity
With 333 islands at your disposal, the perfect retreat is waiting for your employees in Fij. Before, during or after meetings at any of our conference facilities, hike up to a beautiful vantage point, experience culture in a Fijian village, get a spa treatment in the rainforest, eat tasty Fijian food, kayak in the beautiful water, snorkel to see brightly colored coral or do nothing at all—relax on a private beach.
- A variety of food options
In Fiji, you will find indigenous Fijian and Fijian Indian cuisine everywhere. Indigenous Fijian food offers plenty of seafood, while Fijian Indian incorporates rice and spices. At resorts, you will also find many other cuisines, including dishes from China, Europe, Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, and the Americas. Many times, fresh fruits and vegetables are grown directly in the resort garden. And chefs around the islands can cater to special dietary needs for those with vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diets (just inquire about your options when booking).
- World-class diving
Fiji is the soft coral capital of the world! Whether you are a master diver or simply like to snorkel, you must experience Fiji under the water—and the soft coral is an absolute must-see. Fiji is home to one of the largest barrier reefs in the world, Great Astrolabe Reef, and a network of thousands of square miles of brilliant coral reefs, replete with numerous species of fish as well as many types of coral and sponges.
- Tropical world-class golf courses
It can’t get much better than playing golf on a beautifully landscaped, tropical green overlooking the idyllic waters of Fiji. The country is home to the Fiji Open and several top golf courses. The Natadola Bay Golf Course on Fiji’s Coral Coast was designed by famous Fijian golfer Vijay Singh. The Pearl Championship Fiji Golf Course, one of the country’s most scenic links, is located in the Pacific Harbor; it was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. and is considered one of the most adventurous courses in Fiji.
- Easy, non-stop service from Los Angeles aboard Fiji Airways
From Los Angeles, Fiji is a ten-and-a-half–hour, red-eye flight to Nadi Airport. Hop on the plane in the evening after work, sleep, eat a meal and watch a movie—you’ll be in Fiji before you know it. Fiji Airways, Fiji’s national airline, is refreshed with new A330s and revitalized service, including new meal options to improve the flight experience.
- Award-winning spas
Fiji is home to some fantastic, award-winning spas, like Namale’s Spa & Sanctuary, located on the edge of the Koro Sea with farm fresh body treatments, and Bebe Spa Sanctuary at Outrigger, built high on a hilltop overlooking the main island’s Coral Coast. Many of the resorts offer open-air settings, and you can’t go wrong with Fiji’s traditional massage, the Fijian Bobo massage. This massage uses organic plants and marine therapies in combination with the traditional healing massage techniques. Your employees will be revitalized and ready to go back to generating big ideas after a massage in Fiji.
- No deadlines and no rush on “Fiji time”
While the 24/7 hyper-connected world never stops and can encourage massive amounts of stress—you can escape that in Fiji. Fiji time, as Fijians call it, basically means you can do what you want at your own pace. Say goodbye to stress and regulations. To locals, Fiji time means no deadlines and no rush. How relaxing to be somewhere that allows you to do, feel and be whatever you want!
- The happiest locals in the world—you’ll be inspired by the Fijians and will just come back happier
Fijians are known to be the happiest people in the world, a fact discovered by market research and polling organization WIN/Gallup. While we live in a world with high-stress, it’s refreshing to go somewhere and meet people who will show you what’s really important in life. You’ll not only be sharper for work, but you’ll also have a new outlook on what’s important in life. Every destination tries to talk about how friendly their people are, but once you understand the Fijian culture and way of life, you’ll witness their genuine approach to hospitality.
