Fiji Vacation Promo


At my age, (ahem) almost 40, we have moved into the stage of milestone celebrations, or those life events you want to commemorate in a big way.

40th birthdays and 10/15 year anniversaries are becoming quite common amongst our circle of friends.

My 40th is coming up this fall, and I figure no time like the present to live it up.

To me, life is to be celebrated and a milestone celebration is the best excuse ever to go big or go home.

If you are intrigued by the idea of going big in the form of a dream vacation to an exotic locale like Fiji, I wanted to share a special Fiji Vacation promo going on through Fiji Vacations until the end end of June (06/30/14). A perfect trip for milestone celebrations!

Fiji Vacations is a boutique travel agency and tour operator located in Costa Mesa. Why would you want to use a travel agency?

I wrote about it here in detail, but in a nutshell there are no fees for their service, just great deals and a staff that is thoroughly familiar with the destination, the resorts, logistics, flights and activities.

The resort is a 20 minute drive from the Tavenui Airport, followed by an 8 minute private launch crossing, that will take you to a private white sand beach.


The 17 traditional Fijan style thatched-roof burrs and villas are beachfront, air-conditioned, with large covered decks and open-air river rock courtyard showers.

This resort has been named one of the top 10 resort snorkeling reefs in the world. The scuba diving and soft corals are world renowned.

Benefits of Working with a Travel Agent


Recently I met with Melissa Pomeroy of Fiji Vacations, a Fiji resorts specialist, in their Costa Mesa office to learn more about working with a travel agency.

I will get right to the point. Before meeting her, I would have wondered in today’s online world if travel agents still exist?

But after doing some online research and from what I learned from Melissa, the answer is a resounding, YES, and the benefits to the traveler are HUGE.

First and foremost, working with a travel agency like Fiji Vacations is absolutely FREE to the consumer.

Fiji Vacations has the same contracts with the resorts and airlines as the BIG online travel sites do. But they include so much more value than booking solely on a travel website.

There are no fees or mark ups, but the benefits and resources you can take advantage of can be priceless.

Benefits of Working with Fiji Vacations

1. Expertise of agents with first hand knowledge of the destination, resorts, airlines, logistics and activities

2. Ability to book a trip up to 24 months in advance

3. After initial deposit, you have the ability to make vacation payments, whenever you would like, as long as trip is paid in full 60 days prior to departure

4. Ease of payment to one entity

5. Open line of communication with your agent to answer questions along the way


Does the Resort Live Up to the Photos?

Most all hotel photos online look pretty spectacular, right?

But, have you ever booked a trip online based on the photos and when you saw it in person got a huge “WAH WAH” feeling of disappointment when the place did not live up to the website?

Melissa and her agents at Fiji Vacations have been to all the Fiji resorts.

Every single one.

If your priority is a Fiji resort with an amazing beach and sparkling water, they know the properties you will love.

If your priority is a family-friendly resort with an awesome Kids’ Club, they have the resorts for you.

Are you into scuba diving? So is Melissa, she will give you the full scoop.

When planning a vacation like this, you want to make sure you stay at the property that meets, and hopefully exceeds, your expectations.

That’s why every Fiji Vacations agent will work with you to find out the things that are important to you in a resort destination to help make the very best recommendations.

Online Booker Beware

Many people go online looking for the best deals, and there are deals that can be found for Fiji resorts.

But many of them require full payment up front or don’t include transfers to the hotel from the airport (which are VERY important when traveling to Fiji), or have lots of black out dates, etc.

The fine print can get you, so always make sure you understand exactly what the limitations are before you press the “Book” button.

A Full Service Boutique Travel Agency 

When you talk to Fiji Vacations to book one of the amazing luxury Fiji resorts, they will ensure that everything is taken care of for you.

They can book your flights, transfers, welcome, accommodations, even meal plan if you would like it included, etc.

Then you make payment(s) to Fiji Vacations in U.S. dollars, not to the various companies separately. So much less hassle and infinitely more convenient.

Above and Beyond

Would your big travel website give you a loaner cell phone or pocket Wifi device to take on your trip?

How about a personal cell phone number to contact if there are any issues while you are traveling?

What if you need to ask a tip about a product to use for frizzy hair? Or need to know the types of outlets at the resort?

Your Fiji Vacations travel agent is like a Fiji concierge, there to help you with all the local knowledge you need to make your trip the best ever.

And again, there is no added fee for this.

Fiji Vacations for Families


Planning a summer vacation?  Before you book your annual Hawaii trip or Mexico getaway, I am here to share with you today a destination that might not have crossed your mind as far as one of the top family friendly vacation destinations – Fiji!

If you are open to exploring Fiji vacations for families to experience the “Bula Spirit” for yourself, Fiji Vacations, a local full service Orange County travel agency specializing in Fiji can help you book a dream family vacation to remember.

Closer than you think (a 10 hour direct red-eye flight from LAX), it might even been more affordable than you think.

Has anyone priced out flights to Hawaii lately?! I just did, and almost fell off my chair! Astronomical.

Fiji Vacations is able to package an entire vacation for you, from flights to transfers, hotel and meals, and the package price might not be all the far off from a Hawaiian vacation.  You would be surprised. Seriously.

Fiji Vacations for Families 

Fiji Vacations

I asked Melissa, fellow OC mama, and the owner of Fiji Vacations (a family-owned business operating since 1985) some questions you might have about this mystical location most of us probably have on our bucket list. Here are her answers:

First off, what does “Bula” mean?

“Bula” is a very common word in Fiji used for greetings like “hello” or “aloha” in Hawaii.  Fiji is often described as having the “Bula Spirit” which encompasses the hospitality, kindness and care possessed by the people of Fiji.


I thought Fiji was just for honeymoons? 

Fiji is for everyone!

Fiji is for the young at heart backpacking around the world, young couples on honeymoons, families looking for an authentic experience rich in culture, couples celebrating a milestone anniversary or birthday, and adventure seekers like scuba divers, surfers and sky divers. There is something for everyone in beautiful Fiji.


Isn’t Fiji a super long flight from Southern California?

The flight from LAX to Fiji departs each evening at 11pm. It is only 2 meals and 2 movies or about a 10 hour flight. It is a really easy flight as it falls right in line with your natural sleep patterns and most people sleep the whole way there and wake up in Fiji!


I thought Fiji was super expensive? 

When comparatively shopping for equal packages, Fiji is far and away cheaper than comparable tropical destinations.

Typically the resorts in Fiji include all of the meals, which is an expense typically not included in Hawaiian travel packages. It is really nice to be able to budget all of that ahead of time, so there are no surprises at the end of the trip.

Most resorts offer family packages where kids stay and eat free too! For example, we have packages for families of 4 for $1700 per person for 7 nights, including meals, transfers and roundtrip airfare from LAX.
