My husband and I went to Fiji in January 2019 for our honeymoon. The total cost which included flights, hotel, transportation, and food was about $6,000 for a week. We went to one of the small island off the mainland of nadi which had the white sandy beaches you usual see (got there by ferry). If you stay on the mainland the resort type hotels don't have the nice white beaches as they are built on old mangroves that were reclaimed, but I recommending staying at least one day on the mainland and doing the mud pools those were a blast! The hotel (paradise cove) was the only one on the island and the food was amazing and changed every 2 days. We stayed in an adult only area and when we went there was no more than 10 people total at our island. We had access to 3 pools and got snorkel gear for free. If you have any specific questions you can let me know

Omg, thank you soooo much, Samantha for such a detailed response!! The price you paid, was it per person or total. We are looking at staying on one of the private adults only island called Likuliki...however you spell it. What was the weather like? We are planing for the end of May. Also, is food expensive??? We want to enjoy ourselves by being prepared for everything.
Happy to help. That was the total cost for both of us (I know flights were about $1200 each from Denver). Food for our hotel was required to get their package and it was $100/day per person but the food was amazing and I would easily go back just for the food and after we got there it was well worth the price. Dinner was like a 6 course meal and it was all delicious and breakfast we had the buffet type meal and you got to pick something from theenu so there was no shortage of food. Alcohol was not included but we didn't feel we needed it. The weather was really nice, in January it was summer there so I guess it was on the hotter side but we loved it since it is snowy during that time back home. Plus it was easy to jump into the pool or ocean to cool off. The people were very nice and honestly there were maybe 2 or 3 kids when we went and they were quiet and didn't both us or impact our experience at all. We thought it was gorgeous and would pick the south pacific area over the carribean any day. We saw a ton of fish and even saw a shark which was really cool.
The ferry ride to the island we were at was about $90/person round trip and our adult only room was about $285/night but had a 25% off coupon from somewhere so it was a bit cheaper. Also paid for a spa package there and you could pay for a few extra activities as well.
I live in Australia and our cruises go to the
South Pacific (Fiji, New Caledonia, Vanuatu etc) or New Zealand because of
where we are located in the world.
The cost of getting to Fiji will depend on
where you are located, but, having been to Fiji numerous times, I will say that
it is very reasonably priced. I can’t tell you exact costs because there is too
much involved (i.e. how long you will stay, where you’d stay, what you’d do
etc) but you can get some excellent deals there on accommodation, and food and
activities are generally cheap.
If cruising is your thing, I’d highly
recommend flying into Sydney and taking a cruise to the South Pacific. Not only
can you see a lot more of the South Pacific (all the while relaxing) but it’ll be
cheaper in terms of flights. You can do 10-14 day cruises of the South Pacific
from Sydney for less than $1500 USD pp.
