Not all heroes wear capes. Some heroes masquerade as agents, with their superpower knowing the best accommodation offerings for on-the-rise multi-gen trips. Like in Fiji, where exceptional private islands, villas, residences, and apartments cater to every kind of family dynamic. Be the hero that ensures everyone enjoys their annual getaway (yes, even the teens).
While your clients may be asking for the budget option to cram Gran and Gramps, Mum, Dad, Uncle Steve and little Timmy and Jasmine into one room, you know space keeps the peace. We all know time out from family dynamics makes for a harmonious holiday, one your clients will rave about for years.
So, how to plan the perfect Fiji multi-gen vacay?
Private villa vacays
Whether it’s a home-away-from-home vibe or a holiday splurge, there’s no denying a private villa is the ultimate way to cater to the whole family. Separate bedrooms, communal living spaces, and places to cook (or be cooked for) really dial the happiness vibes up a notch.
For families of six, Raiwasa Fiji on Taveuni Island is a fab option. Two luxe suites offer privacy and space, and the mezzanine level for the kids (and private pool) invoke automatic peace. The direct beach access for swimming and watersports means no one gets bored. Plus, there’s a private chef and masseuse!
Another gem for multi-generational trips is Wadigi Island, in the Mamanuca Islands. Kids, parents, and grandparents get a suite each in this private 6-person villa. The pampering is amazing, thanks to the TWO private chefs preparing gourmet meals. There are heaps of activities to keep the troop entertained, too.
For a private island stay for an 8-person fam, Dolphin Island is an idyllic location for family celebrations. Off Vita Levu, a sublime villa with guest bures awaits. Direct beach access, plenty of activities for children of all ages (including watersports), and butler service ensure the whole family leaves with a lifelong memories.
Residences for the whole fam
If a private island sounds like a splurge too far, how about a private residence? There’s still the top-rated service, sense of privacy, and fab extras like private pools and butlers, only with other people sharing the island, too. Perfect for kids who like to make friends on a trip.
The elegance of Vomo Island’s residences is an attractive offering for multi-gen stays. Long established in catering to families, Vomo’s secret weapon (besides upmarket accommodation and exceptional service) is their outstanding kids’ club, catering to three age ranges. There are also baby butlers.
Other noteworthy residences include the luxe vibes and serenity at Naisoso Villas on Nadi (up to seven bedrooms!), the five residences at the oh-so-relaxing Kokomo Island, and the decadent feel at Six Senses Residences Fiji. The latter’s spa is perfect for family members who deserve pampering.
Happy kids, happy life
Every parent knows that keeping the kids happy on holidays is the key to its success.
Nanuku Resort, in southern Viti Levu, is well-known for its incredible activities to keep little souls happy (and big souls, too). Their complimentary daily Lailai Children’s Club has the coolest activities, and every child under six gets a dedicated nanny. Accompany this with a choice of light, breezy villas, residences, and suites; even massive family reunions can be catered to here.
Denarau is an established area for its family-friendly resorts. The Sofitel Fiji and Hilton Fiji Beach offer the best of both worlds. With adults-only areas, family facilities, and kids’ clubs, the grown-ups can enjoy some much-deserved time out. The Hilton has 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartments; the Sofitel has family rooms and suites.
The Shangri-La Yanuca Island has a dedicated adults-only Reef Wing, perfect for multi-gen stays for 16+ family members. Or those that prefer extra boundaries from the ruckus of small humans! If your clients have younger children, they can utilise the rest of the resort and enjoy complimentary access to Little Chief’s Club.
In case you missed it, we also shared the best of Denarau’s multi-room apartments here.
