My aunt married the most wonderful man. His passion? Travel and cuisine. They spend several weeks a year traveling to spots like Hong Kong, Argentina, Fiji, Australia... you name it. Even better, my uncle produces a magnificent leather bound photo journal filled with interesting notes to document their trip. They've been doing this since they marries and now they have a collection of travel adventure books so large it would make your head spin.

Interestingly, my blog provides a lot of inspiration for them. One such destination was the incredibly remote South Pacific resort known as Royal Davui. Located in Fiji, guests must use several means of transport to reach the island. The kicker? No children allowed. This is perfect if you're looking for a little romance or simply want to avoid the struggling to hear the sound of the surf over distant cries for mom or dad.

Adding to the remote vibe, there are only sixteen guest suites. Each of these is hidden from one another in the lush tropical jungle. Each suite (or cabin, as they call them) has a plunge pool, a wide deck and superb views over surrounding reefs and neighboring Fijian islands.

They liked this spot so much that they just went back last week. The food at Banyan Restaurant is reportedly sublime, the sea life seen while snorkeling exquisite and the overall effect of being in such a remote tropical oasis a thing of beauty. If you need to get away from it all and unwind, book yourself a trip. It's sure to become a favorite hideaway.

What the beautiful people are saying...

Oh but seriously?! All these pictures of all these fabulous places. In comparison to my boring apartment, my office. You're really make it hard for me to not plan a dream vacation, one I couldn't go on for a LONG time!
