Getting to Fiji
Look at Fiji’s location on a world map and you could be forgiven for thinking that it’s a remote hard-to-get-to destination. But it’s not. Fiji’s national airline, Fiji Airways, has regular flights from major international cities in the Unites States, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere. Other airlines such as Air New Zealand, Korean Air, Virgin Australia, Air Niugini, Air Vanuatu and Jetstar all have flights into Nadi International Airport, the main gateway into the country. You can board a flight in the evening in L.A. and wake up in the morning to start a new day in Fiji.
Upon arrival you’ll find that you will probably be automatically given a four-month visa. No special application is required—you just need a passport that is valid for at least six months before your planned departure date from the country.
Getting to Taveuni
From the international airport of Nadi to the island of Taveuni is just a one hour flight that’s an experience in itself with its bird’s eye view of scenic outer islands and the sparkling waters of the South Pacific. Fiji Link (www.fijiairways.com) and Northern Air (www.northernair.com.fj) operate daily flights in both directions to and from Taveuni.
For a truly memorable transfer treat yourself and make the final leg of your journey by private plane or helicopter.
Raiwasa Villa is but a short drive from Taveuni’s Matei airport. Guests are welcomed upon arrival and driven direct to the villa.
