Fiji Travel Guide
Ete Swimwear in partnership with Somewear Elsewhere went to the gorgeous Fiji Islands along with influencers Jamie @jamienkidd; Lisa @lisahomsy; Cara @carajourdan; Adri and Luke @maya_gypsy London @london_ellis. In this tropical getaway, we went to many different Fiji resorts, restaurants, and explored the islands
Places to stay in Fiji
We stayed at the stunning Fiji Marriot resort Momi Bay where we continued to relax and explore for the next two days. The Marriot was gorgeous with 3 pools including an infinity pool looking over the ocean, and bungalows which floated above water. The rooms were extremely spacious, and it was great having all your friends and the ocean close by.
We also stayed at the Sheraton resort on Tokoriki Island. Here we experienced the beautiful culture of the Fijian people and were stunned by the beautiful sunsets that graced Sheraton shores. Sheraton was also blessed by having a beautiful reef right by the resort where we often went snorkelling.
For our last two days, we stayed at Westin Fiji on the mainland on Denauru Island, which meant we had access to shops, golf courses and the airport but were still able to get away in the tropical paradise of Fiji.
Where to eat in Fiji
All the hotels we stayed at had a variety of restaurants to choose from, but these were our favourites.
At the Marriot we had a special wine dinner at the lagoon as we watched the sunset, then for mains and dessert, we went to the Fish Bar. There they had some of the finest plates of seafood and so much variety, all the girls were overwhelmed with the place and we had to go back for a second time.
On Tokoriki Island we ate at the Beef Risto. The lovely restaurant offered a stunning view of the beach and islands surrounding it, while we dined on our delicious cuisine.

Wet Edge restaurant located on the mainland was centred on a beautiful deck overlooking the ocean, with some of the best food you’ll ever taste. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and laughed for the whole night.
What to do in Fiji
Fiji is a place with many activities that you can’t do anywhere. The first and one of the most amazing things is snorkelling. In Fiji, we were able to experience some of the most vibrant corals and fish too! We were encapsulated into a new magnificent underwater world filled with colour and beauty. Some great places to go snorkelling is at the Sheraton where there is a reef right next to the resort.
Boat tours are another great thing to do. On the trip, we went Coral Cats Sailing on a catamaran to secluded reefs where went snorkelling as well.
Another thing to do in Fiji is to experience the culture. Rich in cultural traditions practices, you’d be a fool to not want to experience their way of life. There are many places you can go to see traditional Fijian dancing. Experience the Lovo way of cooking, a very old style of cooking for the masses where they dig a 2ft deep hole and cook their meal in it. This traditional method is fascinating to watch and also delicious to eat. At the resorts Sheraton & Westin they have an evening show and meal to experience the Fijian culture and in Tokoriki a short boat ride would take you to the local village where you can have a tour.
What to pack for Fiji
Fiji is a tropical climate, so our must haves are;
