Fiji and Hawaii are two of the most luxurious and romantic holiday tropical destinations for beach goers. Their white sands and hot temperatures create a paradise for couples looking to get away from the city on a romantic holiday.
For couples who are looking to get away for less than a week, we recommend Fiji as your destination. The travel time from Sydney (or the east coast of Australia) to Fiji is only around 4-5 hours and for those travelling from Perth, (or the West Coast) the flight time is around 8-9 hours.
If you’re looking for a romantic holiday that’s longer than a week, it is worth the extra flight time to Hawaii. From Sydney, this will take approximately 10-11 hours and from Perth around 14 hours.
The Best Time to Travel
For both Fiji and Hawaii, the best time to travel is between April and October. This is their dry season, where the weather is best with lower humidity and chance of rain. However the best months are at the beginning or the end of this period, April / May or September / October.
Best Resorts for Couples
Are you looking to experience paradise in peace and quiet, away from loud families? There are a great range of adults-only resorts in Fiji, from a range of prices. In Hawaii, adults-only hotels are very difficult to find; our recommendations would be to stay in a slightly more expensive hotel.

If you’re looking to spend top dollar, then you can’t go past the Overwater Bungalows at Likuliku Lagoon Resort on Malolo Island. With only ten private and exclusive bungalows you can have the most romantic experience that you could possibly imagine.
Best Fiji Resorts - Taveuni Island Resort & Spa
A slight step down from this is the Taveuni Island Resort & Spa. This resort is continuously ranked as one of the top Fijian resorts. Similarly the Taveuni Island Resort & Spa only has accommodation for 12 couples, ensuring complete tranquillity and romantic relaxation.
