Turtle Island Logo

ecognized world wide as the site of both the “Blue Lagoon” films, Turtle Airwaysthis 5 Star resort is designed for couples who enjoy romantic picnics for two, intimate moonlit dinners at seaside, horseback riding at dawn, or relaxing and sensual massages. Although Turtle only accommodates 14 couples at any given time, there is a staff of over 150 people on the island to provide guests with an experience of a lifetime. Since it's opening in 1980, Turtle Island has been hailed as one of Fiji's (and the world's) finest resorts. 

our personal guide to the island will be your Bure Manager, assigned on your arrival for the duration of your stay.  Aside from housekeeping and Turtle burelaundry duties, your Bure Manager will interact with you in many other ways.  If you like, they may accompany you on a snorkeling tour, helping to identify Fiji’s diverse marine inhabitants, or join you on a tour of the island.  They can help you choose a private beach for your picnic, assist in the set up, and return at the end of the picnic to help pack up.  With your consent, your Bure Manager will document your stay at Bure managerTurtle Island with both movie and still cameras, providing you with a complimentary DVD and complete photo album on your departure.  Needless to say, the relationships forged between guests and their Bure Managers can be exceptionally rewarding.  The Bure Managers have received the nickname "Bure Mamas" because of their loving care to their guests... Also on your first day your Bula Buddy will make your acquaintance. In the process of getting to know each other, your Bula Buddy will make notes about your likes and desires for your stay. For instance, if you mention a love of snorkeling, you will mysteriously find snorkeling gear in your bure!  Your Bula Buddy is there to take care of all your adventurous desires.

beach picnichere are 14 incredible white sandy beaches on the island, and you can schedule private picnics on 8 of them. Choose your picnic setting from naturally occurring palm fringed beaches, some adjacent to the living and dining areas, or totally secluded, bounded by high cliffs or set within a cove. Couples can reserve a beach for the day and enjoy a romantic picnic where a luncheon of lobster and champagne  (or anything you prefer), will be dropped off. (A seven night package on Turtle includes at least 2-3 private beach picnics.)  These pleasures are enhanced by the warmth and gracious pampering of Turtle's Fijian staff

njoy the ultimate romantic picnic on the private dining raft in the lagoon at sunset.  The food is superb, and the memories inspired by ribbons of rose, gold, and amethyst reflected in the water-from the tropical sky will last a lifetime.  Evening Dinner Parties are served in a variety of locations with cocktails at 7:30 pm and dinner at 8:00 pm. The chef and serenaders will visit your bure starting at number one a little before 7 pm toRomantic dinner on the water inform you of the choices and delights that await you for the evening meal.  If you would prefer smaller portions, please advise our chef.

Once again, we will never find a place on earth as beautiful as Turtle or the staff as wonderful. That is why we return year after year - until we meet again - be well. Tom and Karen - Clancy UT USA  November

Our trip was all we imagined and more. We had only been there 24 hours and we were already planning our next trip to the island. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The staff were wonderful, the food and wine was all 5 star, the scuba diving was unbelievable, and the accommodations were perfect. We also met many new friends on the island and we're already making plans to meet up again soon. Gary and Katherine, August 

Our Wedding was fantastic and Turtle Island was magical...  We loved that they had their won garden...  The private beach picnics were a real treat.  It is such an amazing place...  Adam & Elizabeth

I find it hard to come up with enough words to describe our week’s stay on Turtle Island. From the moment, we stepped off the seaplane, we were in love with the Island.  My husband and I considered this the vacation of a lifetime.  Chris and Beth
