After an intolerably long break from international travel, the end is finally nigh. Yes, my friends — borders are reopening and the holiday planning can officially begin, with overseas adventures no longer a pipe dream.
If your ideal getaway is one spent unwinding on white sandy beaches, lounging by infinity pools, indulging in water-based activities and soaking up the spicy temperatures of a tropical climate, then Fiji should be top of your holiday hit-list. Its borders are set to reopen to Aussie tourists from this Thursday, November 11 and we can already taste the coconut cocktails.
So, we’ve rounded up some next-level Fiji escapes you can book right now for a tropical sojourn; from group-friendly hilltop villas to beachside stays for two.
You’ve waited too long for a holiday to settle for anything less than luxurious — hunt down that passport and lock in one of these dreamy Fijian stays.
