Fiji with Fiji Airways (Part 2) – Tokoriki Island

In this post, we bid goodbye to Vanua Levu for Tokoriki Island! We took a domestic Fiji Link flight from Labasa Airport (another Airport on Vanua Levu Island) back to Nadi, afterwhich we headed to Port Denarau to catch a South Sea Cruises Ferry that would take us to Tokoriki. The ferry disembarkation process was a unique one – there is no jetty: hotels and resorts on Tokoriki Island would send their house boats to the ferry, located somewhat 1 kilometre away from the island, in the middle of the ocean, and we would have to board the next boat while out in the choppy waters. Relieved was I when we got onto our Tokoriki Island Resort house boat. (Just to clarify, we stayed at Tokoriki Island Resort on Tokoriki Island. Tokoriki Island is also home to many other fantastic resorts you can check out!)

Tokoriki Island Resort

Upon arrival, we were greeted with the familiar tune of the Ukelele, accompanied by voices chiming in with “Bula!” or “Welcome to Paradise!”. At once, any hint of motion sickness I got from the boat rides were gone, and we were made to feel at home once more. We had limited time at Tokoriki as our flight to Singapore was due the next day. If we had had a little bit more time, I would have liked to arrange a day trip via the resort, out to Cloud9 Restaurant – a pizzeria located in the middle of the ocean off Malolo Island.

Alas, we made do with what we could with less than 24 hours to enjoy Tokoriki Island Resort. We snuck in a little bit of exploring off the porch of our Sunset Pool Villa, and me being me, noticing an opportunity to climb something, jumped onto the trunk of a tree, to Elsie’s dismay. The next morning, we got to experience a Tokoriki Island Resort “unlimited” spa special – I’ve been told it’s the only one of its kind – all guests have to do is pay FJ$370 (approx. SGD $244) to enjoy 3 days of unlimited massages, I know I would be making use of that if I had two more days!

Besides planning a trip to Cloud9, or enjoying your unlimited number of massages, should you visit Tokoriki Island Resort, you can also get to experience the following activities, which are planned and updated weekly online and onsite for their guests: an Island Beach Picnic, Guided Snorkel Safaris, Village Visits, Light Tackle Fishing, and Dive Certification Courses.

Final Thoughts

If you have a bit more time in Fiji, there are many other wonderful things to explore and do on the islands. If I could, I would have loved to visit and hike volcano Mount Yasur, and if I was a little bit braver, I would swim with Manta Rays, or even sharks! For the more sporty adrenaline-junkies, there are white-water rafting and tandem skydiving opportunities too.

Travelling is my life! Love the sun the sea the sand and just being surrounded by nature. Fiji has been on my MUST GO LIST ever since I heard of the place. But I have been putting it off due to budget constraints. And I would be so happy to win so that I can finally strike it off my list without needing to worry about budget.

Reason why: Visiting Fiji has always been a bucket list item for me, and I have always told my partner that we need to make our way there one day! Since work has been so hectic lately, it would be an absolute dream if we were able to spend some quality time on the pristine beaches there. What’s more, we both love nature and the scenery in Fiji is hard to beat 🙂

Starting on my first ever full time job has been really tolling on me and I’ve never really gotten a break from Day 1 till now. Fuji has been one of the must-go on my travel list, so I’m really hoping to unwind and take the first ever trip as a couple (with my boyfriend) together to create new memoris together!

Thank you for the giveaway, Drea! 🙂

Ian, 23, ianchow@live.com I am a recent graduate and I have been busy searching for jobs so hard that I have not had the time to thank my mum who has been supporting my entire family up till now. Since young, both of us love beaches and my mum has recently been complaining about being jaded at work etc. I do hope that I can thank and reward her for all her hard work with this pair of tickets to Fiji!

Hi Andrea! Thank you for this giveaway and for sharing these beautiful visuals and itinerary with us. Would love to win this and finally get to travel out of Singapore for a solo trip, to celebrate the end of my job. Kind of taking a break first before plunging into something that I’m passionate in doing, which is travel writing, or rather to work in the travel industry. This would be a timely trip to get all these thoughts and plans sorted! Would love to explore Fiji in Jan next year to start off the year fresh! 🙂

Reason: It would be my mum’s second year of being cancer free so I would really love to take her somewhere to relax and take her mind off things 🙂 Being her caregiver has helped our relationship grow from strength to strength and I hope to be able to spend some quality time away from hospitals, doctors, injections and all those therapies!

Fiji was the place my parents went honeymoon to, more than 20 years ago – when only tiny propeller aircraft was available to Fiji from Japan. I’ve heard so many cute moments and memories they made along their honeymoon.. therefore Fiji has been my dream place to visit especially with my loved one. I can’t miss this chance!
And Drea, I’m always amazed by your work and that encourages me to travel more when I can. Love you from Japan.

My fiancé and I had initially wanted to throw our wedding ceremony at Fiji but due to some logistics issue, we couldn’t proceed with our plan. I thought this would be a great surprise for him if we were to win this getaway as he was really disappointed. With that said, I thought a Fiji honeymoon would be perfect for us! Thank you so much Drea and Fiji Airways for this giveaway and for making our Fiji dreams come true 🙂

I love to travel!! Fiji is always in my bucket list!!! Started my first job a few months ago and it’s been really tiring for me since then. Hoping that I could win this to go for a short getaway with my mum. Been busying lately and didn’t really have time for my parents. Fingers crossed! Thankyou 🙂

My youngest is 1 year old and my oldest is starting primary school next year. We also decided this year to survive and thrive without a helper and it’s been worth it, but exhausting. So it’s been a while since Hubby and I went for a holiday together. We desperately need to reconnect, and doing it on a beautiful faraway island with sponsored flights would be a huge bonus 🙂

Fiji has always been one of our dream destinations for my boyfriend and I! It’d truly be a wish come true to win this vacay. Being adventure junkies ourselves, we’d definitely take the chance to experience the adrenaline-filled activities recommended too! (that is, if we’re lucky enough to win this!)

I want to win this pair of air tickets for my parent. They never go for a honeymoon ever since they gave birth to 4 of us. Now they are busy working to support us to further our studies. They dont want to spend extra money to travel.
They love nature, they always wanted to travel to fiji! If I can win this pair of air tickets, I will gift it to them.

Hi there Drea,

Thanks for holding this giveaway!! I’m Xin Ping, 24 and the reason why I’m taking part in this giveaway is because Fiji has always been on my bucket list and I would love to travel there one day!

Reason why: I would love to visit Fiji one day because I have yet to be on a trip to somewhere that I can experience the “island getaway” and undersea marvels! To hike the volcano Mount Yasur as stated in Andrea’s entry here is so tempting (that I felt like I want to teleport myself there right this instance! Hehe!) I would love to have my next holiday in Fiji and get some relax time, away from work coz it’s been quite stressful lately.

Thank you! 🙂

Thank you for the giveaway Drea and Fiji Airways! Well known as a paradise for island hopping and warm hospitality, Fiji has always been the dream place to visit for my partner and I. Other than the beautiful natural sceneries, Fiji’s exotic cuisine and cultural diversity are sure to complete all travellers’ wholesome tropical fantasy! It will be a dream come true trip to be ticked on our bucket list!

My husband and I love travelling but have never been to Fiji or the likes of it. Somehow we have always been drawn to cities like Japan or quaint towns in Europe. After reading your blog, we are truly inspired for a magical getaway to this beautiful island surrounded by lush greenery and clear waters to clear our minds and relieve the piled up stress from work 🙂

Uni life has been draining and a getaway to Fiji sounds perfect!! The pictures of Fiji look so beautiful and it would be amazing to relax and recharge in that environment.
Also, my parents have always been the ones bringing me on travels and I would love to be able to bring them on one. That wouldn’t be happening in the near future since there’s no income from studying so winning tickets would be the next best option 😂

I am in my fourth year of university and would really hope to travel to a place which I have yet been to, in celebration of graduation next year! It would also be a great getaway before I start on my work and masters! I could also use it to encourage my sister for her ‘O’ levels next year, either for her to relax before studying or as a reward for her effort.
