Best Time to Travel

Due to its proximity to the equator, the seasons in Fiji show minimal variation, although the “summer” months of December through March tend to have slightly higher levels of rainfall and humidity. Expect pleasant temperatures ranging from 24-30 °C during the day and 21-26 °C at night, accompanied by some humidity. The resort’s location ensures refreshing ocean breezes throughout most of the year.
