Fabulous Family Friendly Resorts in Fiji

Fiji is one of the happiest countries in the world – literally! A report by world-leading market researcher, WIN-Gallup, found that 89% of Fijians report that they are happy.

Who wouldn’t want to visit one of the happiest places on earth? The Fijian people are known for their warm hospitality, friendly nature, and living on “island time”, where everything goes at a relaxed pace and there’s no room for worrying.

And the famous Fijian hospitality doesn’t end with couples, as many of the resorts pride themselves on the attention they give to the littler world travellers, to ensure their holiday is an experience to remember.

To help you decide which resort is best for your family, we’ve scoured the islands and found the best 11 kid-friendly resorts.
