In Fiji, there’s a saying, ‘Seqa na leqa!” which means, ‘No worries!’
It’s this island attitude which makes it so easy to drift into a state into bliss in Fiji’s spas. Nearly every resort in Fiji has its own spa, but there are some that are significantly more decadent than others. From feeling the warm ocean breeze across your back to the intoxicating aromas of coconut and frangipani, the best Fiji spas are tucked away in private sanctuaries away from civilisation and noisy tourists, ready to whisk you away to another world of euphoria and pleasure.
Discover some of the best spots for pampering in the Fiji Islands with these Instagram-worthy spas.
Kui Spa, Vomo Island
A private luxury resort and spa in the Mamanuca Islands, Vomo is an exclusive retreat of tranquility, surrounded by a turquoise ocean. The spa at Vomo, Kui Spa, has Thai and Balinese therapists. They use Sodashi products for their treatments, which is 100% chemical free and produced in Australia.
From mineral infused or thermal facials to contouring and detoxifying body wraps, Kui Spa will send you off into a state of bliss.
But for a truly divine experience, you can opt for Kui’s in-room spa treatment. Enjoy a soak in your own villa with a coconut or honey and milk bath, or a romantic bubble bath complete with champagne and chocolates, with optional massages as extra.
Quan Spa, Fiji Marriott
The name Quan comes from a Chinese word meaning pure water. This little sanctuary of luxury is part of one of Fiji’s newest resorts, Fiji Marriott, at Momi Bay on the mainland of Viti Levu. There are separate treatment rooms as well as two couple rooms for side-by-side therapies, with private plunge pools.
Opt for a Heart of the Ocean facial and enjoy a cleansing exfoliation treatment with a signature massage and cooling infusion mask, or perhaps a warm sea shell massage for an authentic island treatment.
The Remote Spa, Remote Resort
Located within one of Fiji’s top luxury honeymoon resorts, you don’t even have to leave your villa to enjoy one of the Remote Spa’s heavenly treatments. Using local Pure Fiji products, a treatment bed can be set up on the deck of your private villa for you to relax within your own little utopia, with nothing but the sound of the gentle ocean ripples in the background.
The Remote Spa offers treatments which are authentically Fijian, such as the traditional Fijian bobo massage techniques with coconut oils and dilo oil – an anti-aging oil made from the locally soured Dilo nut tree.
Relaxation guaranteed. Bathe among the greenery and the perfume of the surrounding flora. It doesn’t get much better than this. www.vatuvara.com . . . . . . . @cntraveler @vogueliving @elitetraveler @modernluxury @theluxurytravelbook @worldresorts.travel @feelgoodmag @privateislandcompany @ultravilla @travelandleisure @tourismfiji @solvetravel @lux.hotels @luxwtconcierge @luxesquire @luxurytraveldaily @luxuryretreats @departuresmag @privatejetcharter

Valeni Sasauni Spa Sanctuary, Namale Resort
This award winning luxury spa is a perfect choice for hydrotherapy, with aromatherapy pools, waterfall massage, sauna and a hot tub. Located on Fiji’s second largest island, Vanua Levu, Namale Resort is an adults-only boutique all-inclusive resort.
Spa rooms have views of the ocean if you wish to hear and feel the gentle ocean breeze, or you can choose a more private setting amongst the garden rooms. Treatments include tradition Fijian bobo massage as well as other treatment styles from India, Japan, Sweden, Thailand and Bali. Therapists use organic Fiji coconut oils as well as herbs and banana leaves produced on the resort’s farm.
