We're wanting to head to Fiji for a family holiday next year and I'd love to hear any advice or recommendations. There will be two families (separate accommodation); one family 2 x adults and 2x kids, the other 2 x adults and 3 x kids. Kids range from 4-9.

We would like to stay somewhere with a kids club or lots of stuff for the kids. We're thinking of around 8 nights and preferably off the main island (just from what I've heard from others).

Budget would ideally but 8-10k all inclusive.

DH and I really enjoyed the Outrigger on the Coral Coast. Not sure what it would cost for what you are after, but they had excellent kids club and nannying facilities. Also it was a really good resort with multiple dining options.

I have heard it's snorkelling options are not the best however. We snorkelled on day trips, not at the resort so couldn't comment on that.

Happy deciding! I loved my Fiji holiday!

i recommend Castaway Island - join up to Luxury Escapes for their mailing list as they often have really good deals. my kids normally hate kids club - on Castaway, we practically didn’t see them the entire trip!

We are heading to plantation island in a few weeks with our 11 year old. Can’t wait!

Malolo island is fantastic, they have a kids club as well as an adults only pool, there are three food places to eat at, as well as entertainment each night.

I’ve been to the outrigger and the Warwick. Both good - the outrigger has a nicer pool and is a bit newer; the Warwick has better snorkelling. Both have good kids clubs!
They were also cheaper than the islands when I booked.

We went to Plantation Island quite a few years back. We had a beach front Bure.  The Island also has two other resorts with restaurants that you can visit and use their facilities (one is an adults only).  Definitely recommend.
