Turtle Island Vacations: A Slice of Paradise

Ever dreamed of enjoying a romantic getaway on a private island? If you're able and willing to spend the $10,000 to $15,000 fee (as of 2010), Turtle Island may be the perfect destination! Turtle Island is just one of the over 300 islands of Fiji. It boasts no fewer than fourteen white-sand beaches. For those that can afford it, the island is available for private rental by the week for approximately $250,000. If you are sharing the island with others, it will cost roughly $2000 per day or $2600 AUD.


Guests arrive at their private island by sea plane. In the laid back tradition of native islanders, the pilot flies in his bare feet. This is no 747, and guests are encouraged to pack lightly as there is a weight restriction aboard the plane. Don't forget the sunscreen though, as the island is located near the equator and gets plenty of sun. Average temperatures hover around 85 degrees.

Upon arrival, guests are serenaded by island staff and offered the chance to indulge in a luscious tropical cocktail before being escorted to one of the islands fourteen private bures, each managed by your private attendant, otherwise known as Bure Mama. A bure is a private cottage that opens onto your secluded stretch of coastline. Your Bure Mama will attend to your every need and assure that you are relaxed, well-fed and pampered beyond your wildest imagination. She will keep your cabin clean, keep you abreast of available activities, and help to arrange for other island services.

Guests awake each morning to a fresh variety of sun-sweetened, tropical fruits and a colorful array of island flowers. Stretch out in your king sized bed and enjoy gentle ocean breezes. If you want to sleep even closer to the sea, a queen sized bed is located on each sun porch. Don't bother packing shampoo, hairdryers, soap, and other essentials as they are included in your vacation rental fee. After your fresh island breakfast, you may each wish to indulge in a 30 minute lomi-lomi massage provided by not one, but two talented massage therapists. Guests are also treated to gourmet meals and cocktails and may arrange for private dinners on the beach or in their bure if they choose. Spend a glorious afternoon horseback riding on the beach or, if you're the more adventurous type, try your hand at a variety of water sports including sea kayaking; snorkeling; scuba diving; sailing or deep sea fishing. Each activity is included in the price. Wrap up your perfect day by enjoying native island dances and music performed by locals for resort guests only.
