The Uprising Beach ResortPacific Harbour, Fiji

If you look hard enough on Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu you’ll find a select few bungalow resorts offering an escape from the all-inclusive, buffet-serving, cookie-cutter behemoths that have somehow taken up most of the Coral Coast. The Uprising Beach Resort is one of them.

Perfectly positioned bures along the beachfront and larger villas off the sand make up the resort. It is small enough to give you space on the beach, but large enough to offer all the amenities you might need. The food is good and the bar lively. There’s a field on the resort grounds where the Fiji Rugby 7s train and volleyball courts where the local villagers play each evening. They welcome new players, but be aware: they are serious.

The friendliness of the staff is second to none and they can arrange some amazing nearby activities, from shark feeding off Beqa Island to whitewater rafting in the untouched hinterlands.

“It’s not perfect, it’s paradise” is the motto and it sums the whole place up, well, perfectly.
