The Vibe: A far-flung island in western Fiji’s Yasawa Island archipelago, Turtle Island shot into the spotlight as the film set of 1980s blockbuster Blue Lagoon. The family-owned retreat goes above and beyond to ensure an idyllic wedding day, promising pristine white beaches, turquoise water, rustic-chic bungalows, fresh cuisine, well crafted cocktails, and local staff who are quite possibly the friendliest people on Earth. Whether keen to celebrate on the beach, in the local chapel, or at the famous Blue Lagoon, the all-inclusive wedding packages include everything from champagne toasts to a wedding cake, photography, music, and a family feast.
Wedding Style: Perfectly private, sustainable soirée, sand-in-your-toes relaxation
Best Part: Music and culture are a huge part of the experience at Turtle Island – you’ll love the gorgeous choir singing, drumming, and guitar serenades. And for a grand entrance, the bride can arrive at the ceremony on a wedding raft to the sounds of trumpeting conch shells.
Psst… You have the option to wear traditional Fijian wedding attire and fresh flower garlands, custom-made by the staff.
Catering: Wedding guests can enjoy a feast of Fijian specialties, including lovo – roast pork and fresh seafood that’s been baked underground.
Capacity: With just 14 villas, the island’s maximum capacity is 28 people.
