A tiny speck in the South Pacific, Dolphin Island is the place to go when you want to get away from it all.
Welcoming a maximum of eight guests to four bures, the island is never booked out with people who don’t know one another, resulting in a very real Pacific paradise that’s exclusively yours to enjoy.
Well, you and the ever-attentive staff that cater to your every whim. Full of cultural experiences, guests can form a connection with Fiji whichever way they please.
Immerse yourself in a kava ceremony, listen to amazing legends and enjoy beautiful songs at a traditional dance.
Eat fresh local foods whenever you feel so inclined or gaze up at the stars in wonder of how such a place came to exist.
The staff live on the island and will be your neighbors throughout your stay – at the end of which they’ll feel more like family than new-found friends.
DOLPHIN ISLAND LOCATION
Off the northern tip of Viti Levu lies Dolphin Island – a small place in the South Pacific like a precious jewel dropped into the sea. Following arrival at Nadi International Airport, guests have three options for traveling to the resort: by private car and boat, float plane or helicopter. The drive from Nadi takes 2.5 hours, and the resort’s private boat will take you across the last portion to Dolphin Island.
Once you arrive to Dolphin Island, either the floating jetty or helipad at the western end of the island will greet you. A sandy beach lies between the two, with the guest bures tucked into the lush vegetation just beyond. Take a day to explore one of the short walking trails to the eastern end, where the Hilltop Sleep-out Bure lures the curious and romantic to spend a night beneath the stars.
The one official type of accommodation at Dolphin Island is the Guest Bure Suite. These are spacious with timber floors, high ceilings, stone tiles and wooden shutters. Bedrooms are prepared with the finest linens, and bathrooms are well-appointed with twin basins, an outdoor shower and free-standing bath. Dressing rooms round out the space, boasting enough room for even the most heavily-packed pair.
The Main Bure pavilion holds center court, with an elevated location afront a dazzling infinity pool. An open verandah surrounds the pool with space for day beds and alfresco dining, whereas the interior holds a seamless design of feather-filled sofas, plantation-style chairs and plenty of Fijian influence. A somewhat unofficial overnight option rests on the island’s eastern end – the Hilltop Sleep-out Bure with an open-air bedroom facing the sea.
Guest Bure Suites Each Guest Bure Suite at Dolphin Island can comfortably accommodate up to two guests. Beds are made in pure cotton bed linen and soft feather pillows, and bathrooms feature a free-standing bath, twin hand basins and both indoor and outdoor showers. A minimum two-night stay is required.
