“Tokoriki Island was so secluded, and we felt so spoiled.”
Couple: Erin Spinner and Andres Brett-Leal
Dates: September 22- October 3, 2013
Why Go: “We loved the idea of being able to combine a relaxing beach honeymoon with big city-sightseeing in world-class Sydney.” They relaxed first on Tokoriki, Fiji, a small, private island resort for adults only. “t was so secluded and we felt so spoiled.”
The Hotels: Tokoriki Island Resort; Fiji Beach Resort by Hilton (Nadi); Sofitel (Sydney)
Favorite Activities: In Fiji, Erin and Andres enjoyed a morning massage followed by snorkeling at the reef on Tokoriki Island. In Sydney, the couple topped off a day of touring the city with a nighttime performance of Romeo and Juliet at the Sydney Opera House.
Lasting Impression: “On Tokoriki Island, everyone was so genuine and hospitable. Anything we wanted, they took care of – that’s especially impressive in a place where tipping is not part of their culture. Several other couples had returned to the island to celebrate their anniversaries, and it was clear that Tokoriki had a special place in their hearts. We plan to return, as well.”
