December in Fiji is truly a time for lovers. Mornings on Mamanuca Island are clear and bright, heavy with heat and ripe with promise. With temperatures up to 35°C/93°F, the mornings are made for lounging together, reconnecting over pillow talk and lingering over coffee. When you finally face the sunlight, breakfast is served to the sounds of the ocean.
December days on Mamanuca Island are quiet and muggy, perfect for lingering in the pool with your loved one. The more adventurous can take full advantage of Fiji’s beautiful national parks, rambunctious water sports, or escape the weather altogether by spending a few hours exploring Fiji’s underwater treasures. When the morning has flown by, wend your way into The Flame Tree, and feast your eyes and your bellies on all the savoury delights Fiji has to offer – plus a few from home as well.
After a lunch like that, there’s nothing to do but sit back and relax for a few hours. Relax by the pool and dive into the latest thriller, stroll along Lomani Island’s private beach, or curl up with your loved one in the privacy of your own bure, savouring each others’ company has the hours slip by.
There’s nothing that crowns a day in paradise quite like a delicious, lingering meal. You’ve spent your day adventuring or relaxing, now take the chance to sit with your loved one in the open air and savour the tastes of your island getaway. Start with a freshly muddled mojito made with local Fijian rum, then savour the tastes of home and away prepared with only the freshest local and imported ingredients.
Savour each bite with a sip of wine and a smile, and when you’ve finished eating, order another cocktail and take in the beautiful spill of stars above.
