The island of Vomo Lai Lai in Fiji is worth planning your holiday around. This is not your ordinary island holiday location. This deserted piece of paradise has a tiny untouched beach with day beds at the ready for you to lounge away the day upon. Have a boat drop you off from one of the other nearby islands and arrange to have a champagne picnic waiting for you upon arrival.

Luxurious escapes don’t get much more inviting than this. Touted as a boutique hotel with natural simplicity at its core, the resort is positioned on the Mexican Caribbean with individual bungalows offering idyllic ocean-front views. When you’re done sampling the casual Mexican fusion options in the restaurant, wander down to the beach where pillow-soft sun beds will support your body as you sleep in the gentle sun.

The Whitsundays may have had an unexpected visitor recently, in the form of Cyclone Debbie, but that doesn’t mean the region hasn’t reopened for business. The blue skies have returned and Qualia on Hamilton Island will reopen on the 1st of July after experiencing its own rejuvenation process. Sublime spa treatments include couples treatments, featuring chocolate and champagne, full body massages and signature spa treatments for the guys only.
