Turtle Island is one of the most magical places on the planet to tie or re-tie the knot. We’re also honored to be recognized consistently as one of the world’s best honeymoon destinations. Brides Magazine extolled us as the #1 Resort in Fiji, Fiji Airways honored us with the Most Romantic Beach in Fiji, and Fodor’s called us the Most Blissful Beach Retreat, among many other awards and accolades. Our remote paradise is the perfect place for a couple who cherishes their love, whether new or renewed.
When it comes to your wedding, the scenery should be stunning, the ceremony should be heartfelt, and every detail should be absolutely perfect. That's the underlying philosophy for all the staff, planners, and wedding packages at Turtle Island Fiji. Let us make your dream romantic ceremony a reality. Here we’ve outlined two options which we would be delighted to personalize to you heart's content.
Totoka Ceremonies are intimate affairs for you and your beloved to exchange vows in the sacred presence of one another, nature, and a small circle of staff members, should you choose. You decide where you’d like to experience your ceremony - perhaps on one of our pristine beaches at dawn or dusk, or among the stillness of the trees in a leafy jungle, or from atop our mountain with breathtaking views overlooking the archipelago. After the ceremony, toast each other with champagne, celebratory cake, and perhaps share a picnic. That evening, other guests in house will love to raise a glass to your love and commitment to one another.
Loloma Levu means lots of love in Fijian, and this wedding ceremony is a grand celebration of love. You can arrange this elaborate affair to match perfectly your dreams.
Many of our Loloma Levu couples opt to exchange their vows on the Blue Lagoon at sunset. As the sun kisses the earth goodnight, and the sky blazes in warm color, the bride, attended by a Fijian warrior, is transported across the lagoon in a billi billi, a traditional wedding raft. At the shore, the conch shell is trumpeted to announce her arrival, where she is carried ashore by her warriors to her awaiting groom. As the couple approaches the outdoor altar, drums beat, and the choir sings.
After the wedding, guests and staff participate in a Kava ceremony, an ancient tradition, in honor of the bride and groom. Under the soft glow of lantern lights a champagne toast is made to the happy couple. The celebration continues into the evening with a wedding feast, music and merriment, and dancing.
