What to Pack for your Fiji Vacation

Dress is always casual and comfortable. We suggest loose fitting, cotton wash & wear clothing.

  • 2 knee length shorts
  • 2 skirts or dresses
  • Blouses, shirts or t-shirts
  • Cotton trousers (denims if you plan to ride horses)
  • 2 swimsuits
  • 2 pairs of tennis or hiking shoes
  • Reef walkers
  • Thongs or sandals
  • Light jacket or sweater
  • Camera, batteries & film
  • Sunscreen & toiletries
  • Medication

It's a good idea to pack a change of clothing in a separate carry-on bag.

Each person is limited to 2 suitcases (up to 70 pounds/31 kilos) on international flights and only 33 pounds/15 kilos for domestic flights.

Tipping is not encouraged in Fiji and it is left to the individual to determine whether to make a gratuity. Some resorts operate a staff Christmas fund. Though tipping is not a local custom, you will find local people tipping. This has as much to do with social attitudes as it does recognition of the excellence of service. Fijians ritually exchange gifts of food, clothing, "yaqona", "tabua", kerosene, and even money during important social occasions, so that tipping can be seen in the light of sharing. It can denote a person of affluence who is generous. But it must be emphasized that at all times it is a question of individual choice.


Electricity
The electrical current in Fiji is 240 volts AC 50 Hz. Fiji has three pin power outlets identical to Australia and New Zealand. If your applications are 110v check for a 110/240v switch; if there is none you will need a voltage converter. Leading hotels and resorts offer universal outlets for 240v or 110v shavers, hair dryers, etc.

Postal & Telephone Service

Post offices are open 8am to 4pm Monday through Friday except in Suva where it closes at 4:30pm. Of course, our phone service is modern with direct or operator-assisted dialing


Flying Times to Fiji

13 hours direct with stop in Honolulu
