Fiji is an island country in the South Pacific that's plenty far from the rest of civilization—about 1,100 miles north of New Zealand. With more than 332 islands and over 500 islets, there are plenty of secluded nooks for couples. Surrounded by white, sandy beaches and clear, turquoise water, Fiji is a natural choice for tourism because it offers unmatched privacy, a beautiful tropical-marine climate, and endless scenery.

For some, a favorite place to stay is the charming, old South Seas–style at Qamea Island Resort and Spaset along Qamea’s white sugar sand beach. More luxurious still are the Two Honeymoon Bures specifically designed for honeymooners and Three Royal Beach Houses with their own private plunge pools. Kerosene lanterns romantically light the 16m-high (52-ft.) thatched roof of Qamea’s main building at night. Total bliss awaits you at Qamea. (Qamea Island, off Taveuni; www.qamea.com)

Also in the Yasawa Islands, Navutu Stars Resort has a spa and yoga sessions in addition to fine food brought to you by its Italian owners. A salt-water pool compensates for a poor beach. The small boutique resort is spread along three bays off the coast of Figi. The italian owners fuse a Mediterranean feel with Fijian culture. (Yaqueta Island, the Yasawas; www.navutustarsfiji.com)

Sitting on one of the prettiest beaches in Fiji, Yasawa Island Resort and Spa has a very low-key, friendly ambience to go with its very large bungalows, the choicest being the secluded honeymoon unit with its own beach and a horizon pool overlooking the ocean. For a little adventure scuba dive into the unspoiled surrounding coral reefs or take a trip to the Blue Lagoon Caves. (Yasawa Island, the Yasawas; www.yasawa.com)
