Fiji’s best health retreats

These healthy getaways are a wellness warrior’s delight.

Imagine giving yourself a break. Days of uninterrupted self-care, empowerment and no worries, surrounded by like-minded people. This is what a health retreat in Fiji offers, no matter what wellness looks like to you.

There are yoga retreats, women's only wellness breaks, detox health and wellness packages, and relaxation and spa retreats. Fiji has it all.

If you're looking to reconnect with yourself in one of the world's most stunning tropical destinations, here are some great wellness ideas.

Just the ladies

Belinda Anderson's 5-night Fiji Women's Wellness Retreat is all about getting women to reconnect with their true self and rediscover their zest for life.

Open for women from ages 25-69, you'll meet women from all walks of life, as they look to make positive changes and enhance their spiritual growth. The retreats are deeply personal, with only a small group of women (15 places available), held at certain times of year.

A fully inclusive package, you'll live through guided meditations, waterfall treks, Pilates and yoga classes, and visualisation sessions to let go of what no longer serves you.

Not strictly a health retreat – but, rather, an overall wellness journey - you'll enjoy wholesome meals and drinks, balanced with dancing and cocktails (yes, cocktails). All hosted at the Warwick Spa & Resort on Fiji's beautiful Coral Coast. Sign us up.

Health overhaul
