From the second the seaplane...
swoops down upon the crystalline lagoon, it is clear that Turtle Island is more than a resort: It’s an experience.
Hidden in the luscious green...
of the tropical forest is the hammock, swaying to the music of nature. You are in love and lost in nature.
It is one of the original ecotourism..
destinations, adhering to environmentally sound operating practices and fulfilling a responsibility to contribute to the community.
So why do we love...
this private all-inclusive island? Silly question really; everything at Turtle Island Fiji is the stuff dream vacations are made of.
Turtle Island is not just...
the most romantic resort in Fiji, it’s one of the dreamiest places in the world.
Turtle Island was a dream vacation...
as promised and then so much more. Can’t wait to go back!
I just left the freest place on Earth...
The island was amazing! I knew it would be beautiful, but the people made it truly great.
Turtle Island is one of those places...
that takes a piece of your heart. When we stepped foot on that serene, sacred lagoon, we fell in love with the destination, the accommodations and most of all – the people. When it came time for us to leave, we fought the tears back and found ourselves missing it already. I’ve never felt that way about any destination I’ve visited. The day I return cannot come soon enough.
From the air we could see...
young Fijian warrior men in grass skirts on the beach waving to us. When the noise of the propellers stopped, we could hear ukuleles and their voices singing out across the water. The chorus of their song was “welcome home”. This was a delightful welcome at what would prove to be an extraordinary family holiday.
