First Overwater Accommodation Opens on Fiji’s Main Island

12th April 2017

Overwater Villas

The islands of the Pacific are well-known for their idyllic images of overwater accommodation. Although it has so much to offer, this was one area where Fiji was sorely lacking…until now. Honeymooners and luxury holiday makers are excited with the news that Marriott has filled the void, opening up their brand new Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay. The resort is the first on Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu to offer overwater accommodation and is only the second of its kind for Fiji. The images speak for themselves really.

The other thing that distinguishes the sparkling new five star property is its man-made lagoon, another first for Fiji. To the untrained eye, it’s hard to tell the difference however this set up means the resort offers incredible views from almost everywhere. Although the sophisticated new resort features a total of 250 rooms, each decorated with a contemporary style that incorporates traditional Fijian motifs and natural materials, there are only 22 overwater bure villas making them pretty exclusive hot property.

The shining star of Coral Coast accommodation, the new luxury resort is situated on the western coastline of Viti Levu and is just 45 minutes from Nadi International Airport. Aside from the accommodation, the resort also offers some incredible culinary and dining experiences as well as private beach access and an equally-impressive range of onsite facilities.

Although guests of the overwater villas enjoy direct lagoon access right from their back stairs, there are also three swimming pools for all guests to enjoy with popular surfing and diving spots located nearby. Boasting uninterrupted views of the Coral Sea, the resort also offers a deluxe day spa, a swim up bar, kids club, four restaurants and room service. Whether you want to spoil yourself or someone special, it’s the perfect spot for an idyllic overwater holiday and is much closer and cheaper than some of the more iconic overwater destinations like Tahiti and the Maldives.
