Resort Review : Six Senses Fiji

Six Senses is a magical island that epitomises five-star luxury, sustainability and excellence

The next stop on Jules’ recent Fiji tour was the incredibly beautiful Six Senses Fiji.  Fiji’s newest resort, Six Senses opened in April 2018 and, amid the hype of this global luxury brand, we wondered if it could be all it promised – IT WAS!  Every one of your senses, plus some, will be satisfied here.

Six Senses is on beautiful Malolo Island – home to other resorts we love and recommend including Malolo Island Resort, Likuliku Lagoon Resort and Tropica Island Resort.

six senses fiji beachfront accommodation

All bures and residences have private pools.

Six Senses is classic barefoot luxury where shoes are optional but the comforts of home are not.

The resort offers 24 spacious villas all with private pools and 60 luxury residences, also with private pools, full kitchens and multiple bedroom configurations. The accommodation is scattered throughout the island and offers something for everyone – from those seeking classic barefoot luxury where shoes are optional but the comforts of home are not, to the most discerning of travellers who expect all the comforts of home – and then some.

All accommodation options come with pool, decking, views and your personal Guest Experience Manager (GEM).  The bures and residences are dotted along the all-tide swimming lagoon (with the purest white sand), nestled in the lush tropical gardens, in the privacy of the hills, and around the marina.  All the accommodation faces the setting sun so you can drink in the spectacular, every changing horizon from your viewing deck each afternoon.

six senses fiji cocktail classes

Mixology Class – making Fiji cocktails

Masi, our Guest Experience Manager, happily catered to our every whim.  

Your GEM, aka Guests Experience Maker, is available to cater to your every whim.  Our GEM, Masi, was an absolute delight. He escorted us to our villa, told us everything we needed to know, booked our dinner at Rara (the restaurant and bar overlooking the Marina where a seafood feast is on offer), and made a suggestion for lunch (pizza on the grass under the ancient trees).   He arranged our spa treatments and yoga on the deck the following morning and returned as the sun set for our Mixology class where we learnt how to make a G&Gs – gin and ginger cocktails – a Six Senses specialty.

The restaurants use fresh, organic, locally sourced and produced ingredients.

The ethos at Six Senses Fiji is to bring an enhanced quality of cuisine to the South Pacific. Striving to create memories not just meals guests are offered a contemporary take on traditional Fijian and international dishes which ensure to ignite your taste buds and leave you wanting more. The restaurants use fresh organic, locally produced and sourced ingredients together with many from the resort’s herb garden and farm.

It is quite likely that the mixes in your drinks have been made on the island then stored and served in glass bottles.  There are no plastics on Six Senses – even your villa water is supplied in glass bottles.

six senses fiji open air cinema

The open-air cinema screens PG movies each night.

The highlights of our stay at Six Senses were many and, without a doubt, appealed to each of our ‘six senses‘…

SIGHT – the spectacular views across the bay, no matter what time of the day or night.  Spectacular!
SMELL – the woodfire pizza oven by the open air cinema that screens PG movies every night, or lunch under the trees with a cold beer and light snack (dining at Six Senses),
SOUND – the rich sound of birds in the trees, the lagoon lapping onto the white sandy beach, the laughter, ever present of the wonderful Fijian staff,
TASTE – absolutely anything and everything you eat, all sustainably produced, presented and sourced,
TOUCH – your massage therapist in your spa bure who finishes your treatment with a singling bowl humming gently over your relaxed body, and
WELLNESS – the sixth sense that is ever-present.

To celebrate our stay at this beautiful resort and share the joy, we’ve put together a travel special below that we think will appeal to a seventh sense – DELIGHT!
