This holiday season, Canadian warm weather seekers can visit Santa in the South Pacific as they trade in a traditional ‘white Christmas’ and cold winter for the pristine white sand beaches and serene waters of the island nation of Fiji. Starting November 2022, Canadians can replace their winter blues with the warmth of the ‘Bula’ spirit by way of Fiji Airways, which recently announced new direct flight service from Vancouver to Nadi, Fiji. From November 25, Fiji Airways will fly direct to and from Vancouver twice a week on Mondays and Fridays.
With an easy 11-hour nonstop flight from Vancouver to Nadi Intl’ Airport, Canadian travelers can be assured that the warm embrace of a South Pacific getaway is just the ticket for a long-awaited family getaway and holiday escape.
For those in search of a refreshing escape far from the maddening crowds that offer one-of-a-kind immersive experiences, look no further than a luxury all-inclusive holiday at VOMO Island Fiji, located in a stunning privately owned and expansive 225-acre island among the Mamanuca Islands of Fiji.
The stunning private boutique island property is known for embodying heartfelt luxury, showcasing world-renowned Fijian hospitality with only 34 private residences and resort villas. Each activity is highly curated to fit anyone’s needs, with personalized, bespoke activities that allow travelers (families, couples, and everyone in-between) to take in the blissful benefits of the nation’s unparalleled natural environment. Here are just four of the best reasons to visit VOMO.
Usher In The First Sunrise in the World
The expansive size of VOMO allows guests plenty of room for exploration both on foot and water, such as the Mt. Vomo sunrise hike. Once guests reach the end of the hike up to Mt. Vomo, they will be greeted with a friendly ‘Bula’ and a delicious breakfast to enjoy while taking in the view of one of the first sunrises in the world. For those feeling a little decadent, a bottle of champagne along with breakfast is available upon request!
Spend a Day in Your Own (even more) Private Island
Guests have the rare opportunity of being completely alone on its little sister island of Vomo Lailai. Offering a curated and private experience, the team will deliver guests to the island, where a gourmet picnic lunch will be set up in the shade of the magnificent lava wave rock formation. Guests will have the perfect set-up with a day-bed lookout platform, sun loungers on the sand, and all the custom VOMO touches to ensure privacy and pure indulgence. When guests want to leave, all they need to do is call back the team through a two-way radio, and a boat will bring them back to the resort.
Come Curious, Leave A Certified Diver
As a PADI 5-star gold palm dive resort, ocean lovers can enjoy unfettered front-row reef access not available to other island resorts through a PADI Open Water Certification Course or a Discover Scuba Diving Course, with unlimited diving opportunities throughout the entirety of their stay. Committed to creating passionate, environmentally aware, and safe divers, VOMO’s courses are a combination of theory and practical tasks that adhere to PADI standards and offer guests an enchanting opportunity to swim with magnificent sea creatures from blue fin king fish and turtles, to spotted eagle rays and giant trevallies.
