In 1980, American media tycoon Richard Evanson turned his private Fijian island into this tiny, luxurious resort.

Located on the northwestern coast of Malolo Island, this adults-only resort makes full use of the surrounding coral-reef lagoon with its over-water and beachfront bures (thatched-roof bungalows).

Fijians are known for their fine-tuned sense of hospitality, and indeed, the Koro Sun resort makes guests feel very much at home.

Navutu Stars is an intimate, 20-capacity resort built along three bays on the Yasawa Islands.

Surrounded by tropical gardens, this beachfront property is part of a resort complex that also includes the Sheraton Fiji Resort and Sheraton Denarau Villas.

Located off the southern coast of Viti Levu, this all-inclusive resort has 17 beachfront bures (thatched-roof bungalows) and two premium villas isolated by stretches of tropical jungle.

Vorovoro Island is home to only one tourism effort—the Tribewanted project, which invites visitors to participate in volunteer projects to support the local economy.

On Nukubati Island, Fijian-born hotelier Jenny Leewai Bourke has created an eco-sensitive resort concept that preserves the past. Her seven-room private-island property commands a 50-mile coastline unmarred by power lines.
