Club InterContinental: The best resort in Fiji for couples

Above a white sand horseshoe-shaped beach on Fiji’s mainland, discover a hidden oasis where hilltop living takes on a whole new meaning. Welcome to Club InterContinental – arguably the best resort in Fiji for couples with its luxury offerings for the most romantic of holidays. 

Club InterContinental is a resort within a resort set among 14 hectares of manicured tropical gardens at the five-star InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa, less than an hour from Nadi Airport.

With 50 suites, including the ‘pinnacle’ Natadola – a sprawling 218 square-metre suite with two bedrooms, private pool and a tropical garden. Inside are wooden finishes contrasted with pops of colour and marble bathrooms, while ground floor suites have personal plunge pools. It’s the heights of luxury accommodation and Fiji’s first ‘Club’ experience with a personalised service and access to the Club InterContinental Lounge offering Fiji’s ultimate level of luxury.

The best luxury hotel in Fiji

Club InterContinental Fiji offers guests an elevated level of hospitality. A separate check-in means more time for exploring the lush tropical landscape or sipping cocktails under that bluer-than-blue sky. When you do want to venture out, a golf cart will whisk you down to the beach where you can laze on the soft white sand. Or simply stay in your private luxury suite and gaze at the views of Natadola Bay from your private plunge pool. The only interruption will be the soulful welcoming song of Bula Maleya, announcing another new arrival to this tropical paradise.

A taste of Fiji

When hunger calls, head to the Club Lounge, a space only reserved for Club InterContinental Fiji members. Here you can savour modern island cuisine along with impeccable Fiji hospitality. From complimentary buffet breakfasts, afternoon teas and sunset canapés accompanied by cocktails. And all with incredible panoramic views of Natadola Bay.

In the main InterContinental Fiji resort, dine at restaurant Navo and watch chefs prepare dishes through a glass-walled show kitchen. On the plate, smoked lamb shoulder in banana leaf with wild ginger and carrot and pan jus, or mud crab and clam linguini with dashi butter tossed with sesame and pea sprouts, are two current standout dishes.

End the night at Kama Lounge with an East & West cocktail of Fijian Vula Viti vodka, Aperol, lime juice, pineapple juice and passionfruit. Sipped to the soothing vocals of live musicians.

Spa InterContinental Fiji

Nothing screams relaxation like baths of milk and honey. The Queen Cleopatra is a signature experience at Club InterContinental Fiji that will not only leave you feeling relaxed – it’s also rich in protein and vitamins leaving your skin baby soft.

Dedicated bath butlers will transform your room into a sensory haven of flickering candlelight and soothing spa music. Your bath is drawn and infused with bespoke aromatherapy blends, accompanied by herbal tea infusions or champagne.

But before your soak, head to the award-winning Spa InterContinental Fiji. Named Fiji’s Best Resort Spa 2022 by the World Spa Awards, it’s a haven of peace and relaxation. Spa InterContinental Fiji combines Asian, Eastern and Western treatment techniques to bring balance to mind, body and soul. Beyond the stylish reception area is the warmly lit communal space called the WAI ZONE. It features such relaxation – and rejuvenation – focused facilities as a steam room, hydrotherapy pool, rainforest shower and ice room.

With nine dedicated treatment rooms, you can also have a treatment outdoors under a cabana. Because who doesn’t want to lay under the shade of a Fijian bure listening to the lull of the ocean, all while being gently massaged with pineapple-infused oils?

One of the best spa experiences available in Fiji accompanied by traditional hospitality. Fijian holidays never looked, or felt, so good.
