On this South Australia Fiji luxury travel gourmet adventure, start in Australia and finish at a wonderful rainforest retreat in Fiji. This South Australia and Fiji Luxury Travel Package was planned for a couple from Chicago who hadn’t done a honeymoon and now were celebrating their 5 year anniversary. They loved food and wine, but also wanted to relax on fabulous beaches.
We started their South Australia and Fiji Luxury Travel Package in Australia’s hidden gem, Margaret River, located on the isolated west coast. They stayed at the fabulous Cape Lodge in the heart of wine country. From their luxurious accommodations, they enjoyed easy access to world-class wineries, gourmet cuisine, and pristine beaches.
Next, they traveled to Kangaroo Island, where they were transferred to the incomparable Southern Ocean Lodge. This remarkable lodge offers a truly exclusive luxury experience in a breathtaking setting, with sweeping views of the ocean. Our clients were pampered with handcrafted menus and private tours of the secluded island.
Continuing their South Australia and Fiji Luxury Travel Package, they traveled to The Louise in the famous Barossa Valley. While there, they enjoyed the amazing fortified wines in the area and a wonderful dinner at the world famous restaurant, Appellation, right at their hotel. Then the couple traveled to Tasmania for some outdoor adventure and beautiful scenery at Saffire Freycinet. Here, they enjoyed wine tasting and a delicious lunch in the Tamar Valley.
Last on their South Australia and Fiji Luxury Travel Package, they enjoyed an exotic honeymoon experience at Namale Resort & Spa in Fiji. Located in a lush, beautiful, romantic island setting, Namale offers the ultimate getaway with impeccable service. During their stay in Fiji, our clients were treated to a special romantic picnic under a waterfall and a special private dinner under the stars.
After 3 nights in paradise, it was time to say goodbye to the South Pacific and begin their journey home.
