Dolphin Island offers lifestyle packages, as well as the luxury of a private Pacific island all to yourself

Dolphin Island, one of the newest members of the prestigious Virtuoso Hotels & Resorts Program, is absolutely perfect for a romantic escape just for two, or as your own private haven to share time with your family. Now this beautiful Fijian jewel is offering two new packages making it possible for you to spend time together  – without another guest in sight.

Located a short boat-ride from Rakiraki, in the relatively undiscovered northern part of Vitu Levi, this idyllic 13-acre private island has accommodation for up to eight guests and is exclusive in every sense, designed especially for island living. A small team are there to serve delicious meals and to cater to your every need. From snorkelling and kayaking, to choosing fresh seafood for dinner (caught straight from the local waters), or relaxing in a hammock with a book all afternoon, Dolphin Island has an adventure for everyone, from couples to extended families.

Guests can do as little or as much as they please, immersing themselves in genuine Fijian culture and hospitality, with no schedules to inhibit your enjoyment of the complete freedom that Dolphin Island provides. The thatched Main Bure pavilion connects two pairs of guest bures flanking each side and overlooks lawns surrounded by fringed palm trees, offering a perfect central gathering place for sunset cocktails, delicious meals or a plunge in the infinity pool.
