Come on in, the water's warm in Fiji
Who said that tropical island vacations had to be expensive?
Mention the word "Fiji" and most people immediately imagine palm fringed beaches, crystal clear lagoons, blue skies and
balmy tropical weather. While that is one side of Fiji, it's not the only one.
From exclusive resorts frequented by celebrities, to small homestays in the more remote villages,
Fiji can be whatever you want. And at a price that's right for you. We can show you how to plan an affordable Fiji vacation,
saving money on transport, accommodation, meals, and tours.
There is so much on offer - if you only know where to look. Experience the quintessential tropical island vacation in the
Mamanuca or Yasawa islands. Get out to some of the remote villages and stay with the locals, or find a cheap hotel in Nadi
for an inexpensive winter break. Whatever you choose, Fiji won't disappoint.
Picture perfect beaches like this for fj$30 a night?? Unbelievable.
Our pick of the month: Resort
Maqai resort, Qamea Island. As we begin to explore the northern areas of Fiji, we are discovering some wonderful little places that
just aren't on the radar. One such place is Maqai Resort, on the island of Qamea.
It takes a bit of an effort to get there, but the beauty, isolation and range of activities available in this area more than make up for that. And with a double
bure priced at only fj$160 a night, the accommodation costs are more than reasonable. If you are on a tight budget, then you can get a bed in their
dorm for fj$30 a night. That's outstanding value.

How we can help
My wide Della and I have been visiting Fiji on a regular basis for the past 5 years. Sometimes we stay in resorts or hotels,
and sometimes with friends in local villages. During our time in Fiji (and we are in the process of arranging a 6 month stay),
we have been busy meeting local business owners, visiting resorts, and digging out all the information that you need to plan an inexpensive vacation.
Fiji will never be a truly cheap destination, not in comparison to some of the Asian countries like Thailand, but it can definitely
be affordable. With a little bit of research and planning, there are so many ways to save money in Fiji, and that's where we come in!
From accommodation costs to transport, we know all the best bargains... and of course the rip offs that are best avoided.
So come and experience our Fiji... the place we love. We want to share it with you, and if we can save you
some money in the process, then so much the better.
