If you’re dreaming of turquoise water and white-sand beaches, you should know the adults-only Royal Davui Island Resort, located on Fiji’s southwestern coast of Viti Levu, recently put the finishing touches on a top-to-bottom makeover. Included in the renovations were the pool, a new lounge and a refresh of all 16 private vales (Fijian villas).
In each of the villas, the plunge pools, circular daybeds on the connecting bedroom deck, dining table on the living room deck, and nesting coffee table were all updated. Throughout the property, new design features include rattan, roughly hewn stone, pitched thatched roofs and rich hardwood accents.
The pool area has new private cabanas and sun loungers — all offering ocean views. The cabanas have two outdoor chaise lounges, a small teak table, a bucket of Fiji waters and beach towels. Tip: An “SOS Cocktail Flag” was added to a nearby coconut tree for guests to raise as needed.

There’s also a new Sunset Lounge, an intimate cocktail spot evoking a tree house motif and a private dining deck with circular couch-style seating. For a more intimate setting, guests should dine at the new, thatched-roof private beach hut. We suggest ordering the Kokoda, which is marinated reef fish, local lemon, fresh Davui coconut milk and chili.
Good to know: The latest in beach toys and water sports such as kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and snorkeling equipment are now available.
